Looks like a lot of fun and some good eating.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Nice eaters right there. Around here we can't seem to keep the 100 pounders off our small baits and have to keep throwing them back in until we run out of bait. I think that the 100 pounders are eating all of our eater-sized cats. At night, in some stretches, you can walk across their backs to get across the river.
(Sorry. I couldn't help but fall into "fish story" mode. Some of the above is partially true however.)

If you do, fry up that belly meat for supper. Best catfish you'll ever eat. Imo.

Many years ago, I fished the James around Hopewell for bluecats, because we didn't have them here.
Rappahannock too, esp.since it's closer to me.
Now, they are EVERYWHERE!
