Fished out of Hicks landing Yesterday from 8-till about 2pm. Caught plenty of bait around the swamp inlets. Had a slow day lots of wind. Lost three big fish. My son lost two at the boat both fish well over 30# . Considering he is only 9 he did a great job getting them to the boat. After that dad hung a big one and lost it in the trees. We caught a lot of smaller fish in the 5-16# range. No hogs for us this trip, there have been some caught over the past few weeks. My brother in law got one 59# on Saturday. Water temp was 55. Fished with Eels and Gizzard shad ALL of our fish were caught on fresh cut Rapp shad. Ended up letting the live Eels go couldn't even get a sniff on them. Fish were caught in 15-20' about 60 miles north of Dutch Gap. Looks like I'm headed for the James Thanksgiving weekend. Hopefully Some one can give me a few hot tips on bait and the bite.
