    Coming down this weekend. Hopefully the boat will behave, it won't rain too bad, and the fish will be biting! But that's probably asking for too much.

    Anybody else fishing?

    Well, I didn't mind the rains, but now it looks like strong winds from Friday through Sunday. Wind will keep me home. I hope the forecast changes.

    I depends how the water is flowing from the upper part of the James, if the current is too strong I will not be able to fish downtown, I may drive farther down river it just depends. Good luck.

    depends on how bad the wind and rain gets!

    got the engine swapped out now. can't wait to try it out.

    hopefully the cooler weather lately will trigger some fish!!

    Hope you break her in good with some 50 pounders to go with the 50 HP.

    Sunday looks like our window of opportunity. If its not raining to hard Sat morning, I'm bow hunting. Sunday is a fishing day.

    Where is everyone launching from? Deep Bottom for me. Its the closest and I'm too lazy to explore other parts of the river,,,,,,,,,,Yet!

    Sunday is looking good, and I have Monday off if I need it.

    See you guys on the river.

    Think I'm gonna give "downriver" the all day treatment, as long as the winds are calm. You should come on down Kenneth.

    Since I haven't caught diddly squat the last two times out, I think I will give downstream a shot. This will be an explore day for me. Only concern is to where I should set my net for bait. I could always stop at Deep Bottom get bait, reload the boat and go to Hopewell but that seems like a pain in the drain if I don't need to. Looking for advice here?????

    I've had a tough time with it lately (Like most of us for whatever reason..weather changes??) but when my normal bait spot (a private owned place where i put in at) isn't giving up bait,i check the dg spillways where the water comes out, & in the shallow shorelines along the river where there aren't any lay downs. (no particular spots) ...I just tore a net all to crap a couple weeks ago trying new spots myself..:angry::angry: It's a real gamble at $35 a pop! I might go out Sat. just for bait for Sunday if the rain ain't too bad. good luck & be safe.

    I've been looking into the castnet, I think with time and practice I can manage a good hurl at the bait. The loss of a net would put a real sour taste in my mouth. I don't have cash to just toss in the River...
    I'm fishing all weekend rain aside, I'm going to coat myself in Goretex and go for it. I work all week chained to a desk, I don't care if it's raining fire I'm fishing...
    good luck

    Thanks for the bait tips. Josh reminded me about some spots down river to try so try I will,,,,,,,unless I go to the Bay. My brother is down there working through Tuesday and offered me his extra bed at the Marriott.
