James River Revisited 5-17-19

Recommended Posts


Surface temps at 68 Mid-James and the fishing is just about unreal.  So good its simply hard to believe.  Full Moon and warm temps put the K's in full spawn and right on the banks in the flat pockets.  Most of our fish today came in under 10 ft. and it was a day to remember.


I'm saying 17 keepers and in an MLF format probably 25 score able fish with another dozen at or under a pound.



Took off out of Hideaway at 6 AM and really the bite was still going at 10 when we quit.  We fished from Jackson to Campers and every stop was "Fish On."


We caught K after K with several spewing eggs as we released them.  When you would catch on another one was most always trailing it to the boat.

Saw Skeet Reese, as a matter of fact he kind of cut us off.  We caught 3 fish behind him.  He was throwing a small swimbait.


We caught most all our fish on the 1/2 Pig Sticker in GPO with a Smallie Beaver in Goby as the trailer.  Rod was a Falcon Swim Jig Signature with a Lew's tournament Pro and 15# Invezx



Wish it was like this everyday.
