    Does anyone fish around Newport or Chesapeake Va. or does everyone fish the James way up river? I may be in NE NC for a few months and was trying to see if the fishing down in that area of the river is any good. Looks like some really big water, just don't know if they come down that far.

    I never hear of much below where the Chickahominy river dumps in the James. Plenty of stripers in the James down Chesapeake way.

    Far as big Blues go The chick is about the last stop I know of. If your looking for cats. If not there are alot of good salt water options and Brackish water options for Stripers, Croaker, Spot and Trout around this area from Chesapeake to the bay. The York River, Hampton Rhoads Tunnel to Virginia Beach offers tons of options.
