I put in at Deep Bottom at a casual 7:30. Stopped by the bait hole downstream and caught enough for the day. Marked 5 kazillion Shad and other fish all along the north bank in the channel from the bait hole to past Curles Neck Mansion. I tryed several spots along the way and mananaged a few smallish fish. Off to the main river below Jones. Stopped and visited with a few folks and so far no one was slaying them. I decided to take a boat ride and see how the Lund likes the choppy water so I went down to Hopewell at 3/4 throttle. I was very pleased. The boat cut the water nicely. I would have rattled my filling out in the Lowe Roughneck. I saw some boats by the bridge at Jordon Point and I stopped and poked around the sunken barges. When the tide started coming back in the fish started biting pretty good. No big ones but lots of 5- 12 pounders. I should have hung around and fished there longer for a biggun but it was so pretty I had to run the boat some more. I stopped below Presquille and caught a 26 pounder in a new spot for me. Tryed a few more spots above Jones Neck and off the river around three. What a beautiful day. There were lots of boats out today. I bet with todays forecast of high wind hardly a sole is out there right now. The barometer is falling like a stone and I just know they are snapping and I am sitting here typing. Absolutely no wind outside right now. Its supposed to be howling in a little while.
