Fishing the James River

Thursday evening Dad took Josh and I fishing under the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel at the mouth of the James River.  It was a perfect night to fish.  When the tide started coming in, the stripers and shad were everywhere.  For a couple hours there we averaged catching a fish every third cast.  I stopped counting after I had caught 20, but I must have caught somewhere between 60 and 75 fish.  The shad we weren't allowed to keep, so they were all thrown back.  The stripers had to be 18 inches to keep.  Dad caught 2 keepers and Josh 1, but all the rest were thrown back.  Fun, fun, fun.
