  • James River Gold

    Fishing for fish that actually eat aka NOT LAKE ANNA....

    Weather: 35-50, Sunny, Post-Frontal
    Water: Clear, 4-5'viz, 43-45 degrees
    Wind: 5-10

    I fished the James today but unfortunately my netman/co-angler was not able to make it. I also had to dig deep and pick up some minnows as my "co-angler." The cleaner the water the better the bite becomes on live bait. I managed 6 fish today with 5 coming on live bait. All fish were caught between 8-12 feet. These fish are brutes regardless of size, they put largemouth to shame. My best 5 were between 16-17lbs.

    Twins, 2-8 & 2-12



    3-10

                      We are told that we shouldn't judge all Muslims by the actions of an extreme few. Why can't we offer millions of law-abiding American gun owners the same consideration?

                        I'm not a hug fan of livebait, however on this part of the James when the water is clean you don't have much choice if you want to catch fish. It is definately the original cheater rig, but the fish still fight the same.
