Hello All. Just a quick introduction as I'm new to both the board and the bay. Name is Jack, but my online tag is "cigar_stub" or just "stubby". Not an anatomical reference, but related to my penchent for smoking a good cigar to the stub (I'm a one or two cigar a week person). Moved to Richmond with a job change about two years ago from Oklahoma. Had a bass boat there and did well after learning the area. Last July I picked up a 2002 19' Bay Stealth center console. I've added VHF radio, GPS/Fish Finder and stereo. Oh and I was pleased a couple of days ago as I had the boat inspected by the CG Aux and passed, so I have my sticker.

I've been doing some fishing in Lake Anna and did well in the spring, but had a crappy summer. I've taken a couple of runs to the bay to start getting my sea legs again (lived in Jersey before OK). Fished a couple of times at the Cell and last week put in at Lynnhaven, fishing around the CBBT (2 small specks). Still very new and don't know what I throwing yet, but have a great time none the less. Looking forward to learning and of course fishing. Taking my neighbor out this weekend, Lynnhaven again to see if I can do better at the bridge. I picked up a couple of umbrella rigs at BPshops so I'd like to give them a try. I gotta tell ya, after fishing so many years on light tackle, tying up those umbrella rigs with some 60 lb test wa a bear. Not used to knot tying such large line.

I fish either by myself or with a neighbor if I can talk one into going. Most on my block have young ones (2 years old or younger) so they have lots of family commitments. My son is a senior at OU (go SOONERS). Looking to hook up with other boats when I go out and to learn more. Any clubs that meet now and then to discuss tatics, or have an adult beverage while telling lies? <grin> I'm in the Richmond area so it's a two hour run to Lynnhaven.

Anyway, this board looks like a great way to meet and learn. Hope to be an active contributor. Cheers and good fishing.

Welcome to the bay Stubby :thumbup:. I'm new to this as well, but i can tell you if you read the board, and listen to what the old ones are saying, you will learn and they will put you on the fish. Have a great time tomorrow, and hope you bring home some eats.

Look into some crimping pliers and crimps and never tie another knot on anything over 25 pounds again.

The heavy stuff I use is 12 pound test-

BUt I dont troll the bridge either tho.
