James River 2-22 to 2-24

Just got back from my annual trip to the James river.  The conditions were tough with freezing rain and rain through out the trip.  LuckeyWade, Rollo and I made this years trip, which was a great group of hardcore catters willing to sit in these conditions.  First day was slow with a few decent fish caught. I ended up the day with a solid 40+ pound fish
Day two it Rained all day and another struggle to get on a few fish.  Rollo caught big fish of the day with a solid 52 pounder.  Luckeywade and I finished with a few fish around 30 pounds.  The rain def. made for a long day on the river.


Day three started with a bang, 10 minutes into our first anchor we stuck a big triple.  Three solid fish.  This has to be the highlight of our trip.  Very exciting scrambling around the boat trying to get all of them in the boat.  Shortly after the triple Luckeywade and I landed a good double.
 Capt. Hugh Self  always works hard to put us on good fish and makes for a great time. Already looking forward to our next trip. Gonna try to get down there again this year to hit the Fall bite.  BigThanks to Rollo and Luckeywade for another memorable trip!
