    Default Upper James 2/11/2012

    Weather: Overcast, light breeze
    Water: Light stain, 3-4' of visibility
    Water Temp: 44-45
    Baits: Jerkbait, small plastics

    Striper and I fished last saturday on the upper James in hopes of finding some nice brown fish. We focused on rocky banks and riprap banks. Fishing was slow but Brian did get the opportunity to net two fish for me. One came on a brushhog the other came on a jerkbait. They both fought well even getting two full jumps out of the smaller fish. Brian managed to lose his 1 bite due to a mouth full of combos. We'll be back at it Monday.

    Jim, you should be good to go on Saturday.

    Sounds like Brian has been practicing his netting in the offseason.

    2 for 2 with Jay, so that's a good sign.
