Well guys i decided after the meet-n-greet sun. that i would try a mid week fishin trip back to the james. I put out of osbourne about 11:30am at the peak of the high tide. My plan was to fish most of the outgoing tide till it went slack and then pull out and go home. We didn't do alot just about 8-10 fish all under 10lbs. We had anchored down by the 295 bridge for the last of the running tide. It was already after 4pm and we were just about ready to leave.decided to stay till the tide went completely slack and just enjoy the nice weather. didn't expect what happened next. i had my 2 big penn clickers out with big baits and was using a med.hev spin cast with smaller pieces of cut shad. threw it out in the channel for that last cast before we leave. A few minutes later 4:55pm the rod tip wiggled. I looked at my bud and said hey look another little bait stealer. i was gonna reel it in and go,gave it a min. then i got up to reel it in and BAM, the rod went down and it was on Wow what a battle! 15lb test line and let him run run run. It tooK 1 hour and 3 minutes to land the big bruiser! 44inches close to 50lbs! my new pb! I need to stick with the big poles and Hey Jeff I need a bigger net too!:smile2: Good luck on the water and see ya guys out there soon!:roll_eyes: p.s. took pics but they are on a disposible cam will post when get developed! 1 of them will be used for my avatar!
