I am heading for Dutch Gap tomorrow morning with my kayak. I hope to be down there about 8 am. I have an hour drive from Fredericksburg. I have been studying this catfish stuff and putting my kit together for over a year now and I am going give it my best shot. Wilderness Systems 135T 13'5" kayak, Cuda 128 FF, 6'6" boat rod with Diawa baitcaster w/ 50# spectra, 7" med wt spin caster with 20# mono. The only thing I am concerned about is the rain and fresh bait. I have some frozen Shad and I am going to take my cast net. Wish me luck and say hello if you see a crazy yaker on the James. Whisker to all.
