Headout the door at 0615 and we were leaving Tony's by 0630 on the way to Hopewell.....stopped for a bite ot eat someplace out in the sticks along the way and an hour plus a half we got to the ramp......bait was easy to get. Too easy, loaded up the net with 30 plus shad in less than 15 minutes........we fished the river all day and stopped when ever we saw bait piled up around the green bouys or the power line towers.....sat in about 4 spots from 0900 till almost dark, boated 9 fish all in the teenage range with no big hawgs at all.....saved a few for the dinner table tonite.....I dont eat them very often but tonite they were good as it gets- I found a new way on google and thought I would share it with you to try.......

Enjoy...headed back tomorro........

I read there are still high levels of Kepone and PCBs in James River fish. Good that you don't eat a lot of them. Course the younger the better.

Thats true indeed, I can count on 1 hand how many times I have brought a fish home period........and less than 3 times have I actually ate one of them in 20 years fishing up there......just had a craving is all. The river is 500% cleaner than it was in the 70's of course.

Just a 24 hour bug I guess- how about you ?

I didnt know you were interested in eating any catfish, I was tired when I got home way after dark, I called 3 people to come get these fish ( not you of course ) that always beg for fish .....NONE of them wanted to drive over and get em.........so I iced em down and cleaned them the next morning.....good eating brother !!
