One of the largest species of catfish is the blue catfish. The blue catfish can reach lengths of 65 inches and weigh up to 150 pounds. The current state record is 143 pounds. The blue catfish will eat any type of fish that it can catch but favorites include shad and herring. Reeling in a monster
blue cat is a thrill like no other and fun for the whole family!

FALL AND WINTER
CATFISHING TRIPS 2014!!!
Had a blast with some great people including Captain Chuck! He is the man if you want to catch fish. He shared great stories and experiences he has had on the James River. Can't wait to get back out on the water with him and more of my buddies. All I can say is that there were three of us fishing and all three landed citation blue catfish!
If I ever get an opportunity to visit the Richmond, VA. area again, my first priority is to book a day with Capt. Chuck!! He is a very hard working guide that will do whatever it takes to make sure you get to bend a rod on a big ol' blue!! Class act!
All I can say if big fish are what you are after, Chuck is the man! 76 # right after a 49 before 10 am. He works hard and knows the river. Shares what he knows. Awesome guide! 5 stars
Captain Chuck is a great guide. He knows how and where to fish the river. He worked hard for us to the last minute, never gave up, never got discouraged. The results prove it we caught 6 huge cats, 2 were 50 lbs! There is a lot of luck in fishing, but Captain Chuck seemed to know every hole, he knew the current, he knew where and how to place the boat and bait to cover every possibility. He maximized every single chance we had for a fish and it worked great!
Captain Chuck did a good job for us. I asked him to fish hard for us and he delivered . We played the patience game not giving up when the bite was slow in the summer. We caught three very nice blue catfish that where a blast to reel in ..the fight these blue cats put up is unreal. If Captain chuck can do this when the bite is slow..then I can only imagine how it would be when the bite is good. Thanks for a fine fishing trip Captain chuck.
One word AWESOME...Best day of fishing in a long time. Captain Chuck is a top notch guy and guide. Very skilled fisherman with a lot of attention to detail. Wanted to catch big fish and that's what Captain Chuck led us to do. Cant wait till next time.
The best guide service in Virginia! Captain Chuck put us on the biggest cat's I've ever seen. I've fished the James for 15 years and have never caught catfish that big. He is very professional and knowledgeable about what he does. We will be going back every year. Thanks again captain chuck! !!!!
If you are looking for a GREAT GUIDE you can stop looking, CAPTAIN CHUCK is the BEST GUIDE on the James !!!. We fished 4-11-14 and 4-12-14, the bite was very slow, wind very high, but that never stopped Chuck, he busted his butt looking for citation fish for us, while other guides were coming up empty we were pulling out Blues, even after getting a citation fish in the boat he continued to work for us, (getting multiple hook-ups on really big fish), trying everything he new to get another one in the boat. I have used multiple Guide services in several states and Chuck is the hardest working Guide out there. If you don't catch the Blues its because there not biting, Period.
