    Live near lake wateree and santee fished for the blue for 15 years but have no idea about the james.I would like to come up in 2 weeks.Can someone give me an idea where to start? looked at the map and looks like hoopewell would be a good area to start?But I"m not sure guess I will bring my own bait for the first day but gonna need to catch it the next day.I'm sure they will be deep during the cold weather and you probaly can catch some around the banks at night or in the mornings.Also what lbs leader do yall use.I use 65lb powerpro and sometimes mono leader but not sure up there? Are they alot of snags stumps etc?Thanks for any info.I have not seen my son for 11 year due to a court battle and I have full Custody of him now and I'm taken him catfishin never caught a striper untill a month ago.Thanks Gregg
