Started out going about the first two hours geting bait only medium cutters then went down river from jp and got a 31lb fish after that the tide died and did not come up for around three hours.When it did we did get two in the teens and a few other small fish.Will be going out of deep bottom tomorrow.Hope bait is easier to get.Talked to Kenneth and he had a rough day too.

Sounds like a good day of fishing in spite of the wind. Thanks for the report and good luck tomorrow.

Jerry ....hope you have good luck tomorrow but the forcast doesn't look to good:

A chance of rain, mainly before noon. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 65. West wind between 13 and 16 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.

Congrats on your catch today..........

JW, I was out today as well, but upriver. I started the day out on my first hole with a nice takedown, it was a really big fish, but he was never hooked - the hook was buried in the bait, operator error.:angry: Thought it was gonna be a good day, bait was really easy. Ended up fishing about 10 holes and had two 8's and a 5 to show for my effort. Oh well, can't get them all the time!

Have a good week, I'm sure you're gonna have some awesome reports.

The wind can make it tough...13-16 mph and you can count on gust to be at least 5 mph over that......and then if you get the wind opposite the tide it can get quite choppy in fact in the big water areas heard of swells of 5' with wind at 20...my understanding a west wind can make it tough on the James...anything much over 10.....I was told if you have a smaller boat and the wind is over 10 stay above Presquill.....but yea 65 sounds real nice.

I'm stuck in Oklahoma for a bit. Wind was 26 today with gusts over 30 so I know what you mean about wind wearing you out. The lake definately was whitecapping, but if you have a tide where you are at and the wind is against it that can make a huge difference. Same on the Mississippi River with a south wind blowing.
