i am taking my annual striper fishing trip next week and will be fishing out of kiptopeke on the eastern shore. i would like to go over to the james for a day of fishing for blues. my question is how far up the river do i have to go to get into the good fishing? can i fish the james with a 23 ft. sea pro or do i need a smaller boat. the names of some towns to launch from would be good. seems like i hear most about fishing out of hopewell but would like to cut the driving time down as much as possible and still have good fishing. coming all the way from oklahoma to fish is a big expense and i don't want to waste time fishing the wrong spot. any info. would be appreciated.
