    I've been reading and hearing a lot about the James River for a few years now. This just backs it up. A fish of a lifetime!

    I'm not sure what the lunar tables are like right now, but I suspect the fish are active between 12:00am and 2:00am. My theory is that newborns, much like fish are driven by the moon.

    Last night, for example, my boy took 2 chits and 2 tinkles in a 45 minute stretch during that period-- among other things. Today.....nothing but sleep.

    I bet the bite was sluggish... Let me know.

    My prediction for the gents out there tonight.....have baits in the water between 11:00 and 2:00.

    Awesome fish, can only imagine landing one that size, looks like my fishing this summer is gonna be limited since working the 5pm to 4am shift, Will only be able to go out on Sunday evenings, if anyone wants to hit the river then let me know.
