We are getting pounded here at JBO Central. With rain like this I am gonna line um up two by two! A lot of the area is flooded and none of it is tidal, all rain. Hard to believe. It has been raining since Sunday and it does not look like it will stop until tonight. Many business are closed today as well as schools, even the local affiliate tv station lost power this morning.
This does NOT help the fishing. The water is gonna be very stained and it will be a week before the James River clears up. (Well, as clear as the James can get)
Best bet would be to use high contrast colored lures for the upcoming opening of Rockfish season. Live bait as well. The Hampton River is full up with baitfish. One cast is all you need for hundreds of Shad.
I am putting extra lines on the Go Green Fishing Machine, then jump on my Go Green Storm Chaser Bike and go take storm pictures at the beach. Wave!! I will be the one wearing swimming trunks and a Columbia shirt with a Chocolate Lab swimming behind me that answers to Tina Turner.
Boy, I miss summer.
Be careful out there and stay off the water. Gail warning for today. Good day to check out our new recipe blog.
