Fished the area of the river yesterday from sunrise to eleven, Trolled mostly but cast some, only had one hookup and it came unbuttoned. Didnt see a single fish caught and talked to one boater that had four keepers and another that said he caught a bunch of small ones and a keeper. About 25 boats out. I havent fished the ditch/river in about 10 years,back when the norfolk steel plant was still there and it was a very nasty looking place, i used to only cast jigs and mirrorlures and did well , then it became popular to fish bait on the bottom/or bobber or troll lures and people really started catching alot of and big fish. I cant belive how many fish it now, looked like a sat wireline session at the third, well maybe not but there was alot out there, and it looked a little better without all that chit floatin around from the steel plant, still aint a scenic place though. Good luck if you go , im sure its still good there we just had a slow day.
