Took advantage of the weather and went poking around the Elizabeth River (hot ditch). Fished about 3 hours and caught around 25 trout. All fish caught on plastic (several colors). We didn't see any of the BIG girls, our biggest fish was 21" and several 16-18. Good sign for this winter, worried it wouldn't be the usual hot ditch action this year after last winters ice.

Tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful. Going to try them solo since everybody else is working :cool:

On a side note: Always looking a partner during the week. If anybody wants to get in on the hot ditch action this winter send me a message!

Buddy of mine caught em pretty good up there last week. They caught some nice ones but the big girls got away. He had 2 monster trout shake the hook fishing top water lures. I can't wait to get up there this year and try out some of my custom stuff I did just for that river. I've said this before but it is a different world up there. when you go you better have your drag working smooth ;)

Them glowing trout give you wings :eek:. It's not the prettiest place to fish but you have a shot at 7-10lb trout every cast! Not sure about the Chesapeake Yacht ramp, I always use the locks ramp, couple places between there and the steel bridge hold fish too.
