    Default Lake James 10/12

    Meet up with another member from here and his friend. We had a great day. I caught 3 Smallmouth and I LMB, I lost track of how many White Bass and White Perch I caught. Not sure how many the other boat caught. He will be posting here and hopefully adding some pics. I will add some pics later. I did not start fishing until 1PM and stayed till just after dark.

    There was a lot of boat traffic, wind changed directions several times. Water was a bit choppy so the schools of baitfish were not as obvious near surface as they were Thursday. I did get a couple of pics of the surface schools I seen and took some pics of FF lighting up.

    Both boats were trolling using planer boards. I caught all my bass on Rapalas, Trout and shiner colors. Most the White Bass and White Perch I caught on spinner hook rigs baited with a piece of worm. Couple of times I caught 2-3 at a time. The Perch and White Bass were fat, I kept some of the large Perch. Other boat was trolling with Shiners and some small crankbaits. I know they lost a big Smallmouth at the boat.

    Hit lake James again 10/15. Wanted to fish from the Black Bear ramp area. Ramp is closed until at least first week of November. Sure wish that had been posted on the ramps website ! I went back to the Linville ramp.

    Day started off decent, caught some big White perch and 2 Smallmouth. As you can see from the pics the water was like glass. A buddy and his son in law joined me in the afternoon. We did not catch a lot, think the cold front coming in may of shut them down. Regardless, great day with beautiful scenery.
