    Started out from Dutch Gap.. caught bait right across from the ramp.. saved a lot of time getting bait there rather than at Deep bottom.. only had the net soaking for 5 minutes.

    Started fishing upstream.. My buddy hooked a large Striper but never got it in the boat.. had a great battle but the hook popped out after a 8 minute fight...

    Had a few pull downs but nothing hooking up so we went down river a bit.. 5 minutes after setting up in a new spot we had a solid pull down.. a 55 pound pig.. it was a tough fight with the current pulling hard against us to.. just minutes after putting the big one back in the river my other rod went down with a nice 30# ...no pictures of him..

    The wind started to pick up in the afternoon so we called it a day and went home to do lawn work.
