I am also from Richmond and up until Saturday I was catchin the piss out of stripers on the James downtown around the 95 bridge here in town. I caught 19 in about six weeks between 12" and 26". I only kept a couple though.
It was by far the best spring season I have had in the James even though none were over seven pounds or so. I also caught two citation gar - one 3'-6" and the other 3'-10" long (about twenty pounds for the bigger one).
