Nottoway is full of cat fish. Left Ron's yesterday at 8:30 and we were bottom fishing for white perch by 9. Had thrown out my first line and before I could get my second rig in the water I had one on. Don't know the difference between a channel or a blue but the sucker was in the 6 to 7 lb range. In all we caught about 15 cats with not a white perch. Fished until 2 so we spent 5 hours fishing. Worked our way down the Nottoway and up the Blackwater a ways where I caught another 6 to 7 lb cat. We began throwing a beatle spin and working our way from the Union Camp spill way back down to the mouth of the Nottoway with only a small bream now and then; no perch. Did have what looked like a school of herring past by but no takers. Talked to some other fisherman and they all said they were catching nothing but cats also. One fellow said he got into the white perch the end of Feburary but haven't caught them since. PP let me know if you hear when the rock are here. It is still MARCH. Forgot to mention water surface temp in both rivers was 64.
