    I went to the James River pier on Sunday, April 5 and did not catch a single fish. I am sure the water temp was still too low. Don't know if it is better now. I did see a guy who caught a striper, and did not release it. As we walked back to the car the marine police and he were having a little "chat". Probably the most expensive fish he will catch this season.

    Man I hate when that happens.......even some people on the piers when you tell em that fish is to small.....and they reply its OK....and then the man gets em....I kinda get a warm and fuzzy chuckle at that point..

    Thanks everyone for the replies. It sounds like I still have a little time to get ready for the trip. I bet that guy will think twice before he keeps an undersize fish next time. Some people are just hard headed.

    From another board I know the croaker have made their way up the Potomac and Rappahonock, so I would think some would be in the James by now

    Yes, you do not want to get the Boss lady angry. The croakers will be there next time, but a good woman is harder to find. I still have not made it up to James. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks.
