    Does anyone fish the New River? I fish it around Hinton, Thurmond and Prince we always catch a few fish. No monsters but we have a good time.

    Jbird711, I tried the tuna yesterday morning and I actually caught fish no catfish but two nice 20# plus carp. I was amazed at the way the fish would grab this and not let go. WOW!!!!!!!

    I am going to Meadow Creek this weekend w/ a few buddies. We're gonna run trot lines and pole fish through the night. Hopefully, we find some fish. I will keep you all informed on how the trip goes.
