I did chores this AM and didn't get to Deep Bottom until 9:30. Parking lot was almost full. It took four sets of the gill net to catch 16 Gizzard Shad. Off and running. I bet I saw 7 boats fishing the Deep Bottom Loop. When I got to the Eastern Tip of Jones Neck Cut Through, There were 4 boats fishing the cut though. I eased in and set up by now its noon. I tried three spots on the cut through. Nothing. Went downstream and fished a new spot for me where I saw a guide fishing two years ago and haven't seen anybody since. Before I could get my fourth rod baited I had a good pull down. New personal best.,(I think). My scales only go to 60 pounds and she bottomed out. The fish was as big as the one in my profile. That makes two I can't be sure of. Anyway. Took a picture of her on the front of the boat and turned her loose. I hate fishing by myself but my brothers couldn't go and my fishing pals are all duck hunting. Had my fishing cut short by giving some nice guys from Barboursville a tow back to Deep Bottom Ramp. That took an Hour. What is shocking is they told me they had asked two other boats for help and were turned down. Pretty sorry, inexcusable and absolutely against the law.
