Heard some rumors yesterday about the James, so I went down there today to see what I could find.

Put in at Blunks around 1 p.m. and there were 4 other vehicles in the parking lot. Worked our way down stream fishing white sliders the whole way. Picked up a 17 inch walleye along the bluffs just below Blunks Hole. Hit a few small bass and small mouths on the way down. Finally just past McCords Bend, I caught a nice white up against the mud bank. Three other boats in the area and saw a few get caught, but not many. Talked to one fella that had 10 of them and he said that he had got there just before the wind started blowing hard. That is when he caught most of his fish. He said he witnessed two others leaving with limits. This morning was the time to be down there. Got into a little early action this year. I’m afraid this cold front coming in will push them back down. Did land a nice small mouth also. Fun day to be out and get some sun.
