Heading to Richmond this afternoon for the IRL race. Other than piers, any decent shore spots for an hour or two of fishing nearby to I-64?

Thanks

Give Green Tops sporting goods a call. I used to catch good size cats under the bridge over the the James River. (I-64 I think) anyway it was near the old ironworks and the river walk. You can park at the Old Ironworks and fish from the bank there. And it just happens to be near the Legend Brewery, great beer good food.
I used to use cut herring or bunker, cats seemed to love it.

Oh yeah, I-95. And the kepone scare is really kinda moot by now. Happened in the 70's and I think the limit is someting like 6 oz. of fish a day or 3 lbs a week or something like that. I think your safe with one every now and then. But there is nothing wrong with catch and release. I do it most of the time.
