Fishing Elizabeth River Dec. 10, 2010

Brian and I took the skiff out at crab creek and went to find a place to put it for the winter near the hot ditch. I got an indoor storage unit at Elizabeth River Storage which has a nice boat ramp on site. We went out for 3 hours from 12:30 to 3:30 pm. Light winds, air temp 45F, water temp 49 to 55f. We fished alot of areas but only caught fish in one which was way back up towards the locks. Didn't see any fish caught anywhere else. we caught 8 specks all in the 14 inch range.
