    so last weekend, jim white (getthenet) and myself went down to the james river in virginia for a blue cat fishing trip with captain hugh self (capt. hugh) and jason kintner (jcat61)... in 3.5 days of fishing we were able to put 49 fish in the boat totaling over 900lbs!!! the biggest 6 fish were 61, 52, 51, 48, 42, and 41lbs. The 61 and the 51 pounder came at the exact time in a 45 foot deep hole! it was a great weekend of fishing with even better weather... if anyone wants to have a great time and catch gigantic blues i would recommend getting ahold of capt. hugh and schedule a trip! i know i will be going back! i'm attaching some pics from the trip below....

    we were under strict orders NOT to use gloves or grippers... otherwise we'd be called a sissy the rest of the trip hahaha
