I don't know about any one else that fishes the Rapp. but it seems that the fishing has improved over the last year. This summer has been one of the best I can remember. The river is still nothing compared to the James but it sure saves me a lot of gas. Last trip out we caught our biggest of the year at 54#s and three other fish from 30-42#. At the local tournament in Port Royal 2 fish over 60# where brought to the scales. How ever there doesn't seem to be as many fish in the 10-20# range in fact most of the fish we are catching are 35-45#. May be the trot line boys aren't getting the big ones. Most nights I'm alone out there , is any one else taking advantage of the quite river and big fish or am I alone? All of our fish are coming from the flats below 301. Eels,Gizzards and the occasional white perch for bait. If any one needs any additional info b-mail and will be happy to help.
