Im not looking to eat them. Just want to catch large blue cats. We release the fish after the fight.

The James is a long river in my mind @ least. It crosses a large swath of Virginia.

We donít fish the James. We do fish the Potomac and do very well on Blue Cats. Anywhere below Fletchers Boat house in Dc they can be caught. The Potomac will save you a couple hours of travel. PM me if you need places to fish. Boat or Kayak Canoe.
