    Be careful Slikk,
    If you go out with a guide you could end up spending a lot more after you decide you need new rods, reels, a boat, top of the line electronics and all that other stuff you will be exposed to:wink::wink::roll_eyes::wink:

    Well, this isn't the question you asked. But if you want a trophy size blue carry yourself on over here to the James River. Here's a guide who guarantees a Virginia citation size blue (30 pounds) -
    http://www.catfishingva.com/

    I went with them in March (just me and the guide) and caught six small blues (under 20 pounds) and one that weighed 50.5 pounds. That's the fish in my avatar. Had a great day.

    If you want to come let me know and we might could share the boat. I'd go back with them.
