I think Elvis is about ready to leave the building. Water at Kiptopeake was 41 today. We saw plenty of bait and big stripers on the sonar. Catching was a different matter. Funny tides again today. Water was slack for four hours straight. Water was flat as a pancake. Almost glass smooth going across the Bay the morning and again coming back at dusk. I caught one big one on a free swimming eel as we drifted along slowly at the tail end of the incoming tide. Zero fish on the outgoing and tried 4 different spots. Almost no chatter on the radio about decent fishing anywhere! Anyway,,,I did catch a 48 inch almost 50 pound pig of a striper. I might go again Tuesday. The fishing grounds from the Kiptopeake ramp is all of 300 yards. On nice days every single catfish boat I see on the James could fish the part of the Bay close to that ramp. If a storm comes or the weather changes ,,,you are a quick dash to safety.
