  • Tue, Feb 28th.

    It's been a while fellas. I didn't fish much last year. I'd get up each morning with the best of intentions, but by 10:00 AM, I was thinking a big lunch and a nap. In retrospect, I have no regrets...Haha. God willing, I'm looking forward to 2017. Hopefully it will be a good year.
    My first TX is on the Chick this Sat. I got out on Tuesday and found water temps were 57-ish. I even found one area at 60 degrees. The James River Pits are no doubt on fire right now. That being said, we launch out of Rockahoc. We will most likely have a small turnout so making a long run doesn't make much sense. I'll take my chances staying in the Chick and working a pre-spawn pattern. Tue I had 13-14 pounds in about 6 hours of fishing. All I need is to hit the right brush pile to find the kicker, right?
    I'm sure there's a hot creek somewhere on the chick. However I have no time to search it out. I'll run and gun main river and it will be what it is.
    I seen only two bass boats out fishing the chick on Tue.
    The high winds will keep me off the water today and tomorrow. But its all good.
    I'll post a detailed report on Monday on how things went. The cold front Friday night will affect the fish. Just how much is yet to be seen. I will find out on Sat.

    God bless and see ya on the water.

        I know you will do well Jim. You always seem to find them. I see on FB where one guy caught an 11.6 and a 10.0 the other day on the Chic. Woof.

            I don't think that was the Chick River. I think that was the lake in TN.

                That was Chickamauga, not the Chick as we know it.
                Ahhhhhh.....Was hoping to get you all excited.
