3/17 Ancarrows JAMES RIVER

I had the worst luck ever hooking up, I went 1 for 5 on bites/takes, my buddy outfished me badly. The shad are there and so are the crowds, you can tear em up on a sabinki or darts/spoons. The ramp was a zoo, as usual, especially since they were having a catfishing tourney.
The water seems unusually warm, by the time the striper season opens all the bait will be swimming in the atlantic.
No pics, next time.

Fished the bridge for a bit, couldnt catch any LEGAL bait in the net, finally got a couple hickory shad on the sabiki... didnt even get a bite at the bridge, moved down down river to my hunny hole, caught 5 blues, none over 15lbs... Pretty much a rough trip, but it was nice to be on the water.
Fished the high tide to the low tide. 5-9PM. On the way in a fella at the dock said someone at the bridge caught a 40lb striper... go figure
