I seems like, as you may have seen mentioned here before, there are areas with great concentrations of fish and others that are barren.
Fished 3 days this last weekend, 2 up the James and 1 up the White. Found good concentrations of fish in a few locations on both, many FAT keeper size spotted bass with one good largemouth at 5# on jerkbait. Key for us was (as always at TRL) fishing wind blown points/banks, cedars and certain docks. Baits were jerkbait, swimbait, nedrig & Menace on swinghead jig, mostly main lake areas and not too many shallow fish, most maybe 10' - 20'. Also, morning bite was poor but late morning early PM was very good.
I'm still learning that if you're not on fish - move. If you're catching fish there are probably more around.
Good luck out there!
