Day 1 is underway

Day 1 is underway and the first anglers I came upon were Tim Grein of North Carolina and Brian Langford of Virginia. It had been a slow morning so far as Grein had 1 fish of his possible 5-fish pro limit. Langford hadn't registered a catch just yet.

I came down to the Chickahominy River to start my event and the tide has been coming in since I got here. It was dead low tide before takeoff, but has been filling up since. On a tidal fishery it seems they turn on at specific windows when the fish funnel to key cover. Anglers are looking for the right areas this morning. With plenty of lily pad fields and cypress trees, the opportunity for a bite is seemingly everywhere.
