Floated a short lil stretch of the james from joe creighton to the ramp under 65 hwy yesterday. Floating was a lil tough being that there were a few trees down making for a short portage in a few places. Fishing was actually pretty good in the heat of the day catching a total of 4 bass. The biggest being a nice 17" plus largemouth that was caught on the very first cast of the float. I was using my "jamesriver" goto bait, a weedless carolina rigged green pumkinseed worm, as this setup has yielded me more bass than any other bait in the box. All in all im glad i got to get out there while the fishings still productive and to get some good sun. Thanks all

heat of the day does take its toll on numbers. Does for me anyways. No fish chasing on small cranks or spinners? My worm is the 4 inch brown cut tail worm that BPS makes. Plenty of fleck in it, never fails me. I try to hit it early in the morning with a topwater or rapala jointed minnow that floats. Plus you won't get as many hang-ups unless you catch the trees

I actually didnt try any cranks or divers, after i caught that 17er on my first cast i wasn't even thinkin about switchin it up. If my other rod wasnt fraying line as its reeling in it would've been rigged up with a 5" shallow diving rapala minnow, my other goto lure
