I finally got to get out the river again. Went out with a buddy on my bowling league Petey Bourne... He just happens to be catfish captain on the James... he put me on some nice fish.. we did not get out until about 10 am..soaked the nets several times only to get one small one. we had to go up in about 2 feet of water and use the throw net. Caught enough with 3 cast for the day. We set up on an outgoing tide and had some hits right away..several nice pull downs but we did not get any hook ups. We moved to a spot down river a bit and caught a nice 32 and 44 with serveral other pull downs.. Then moved into the current in the middle of the river and caught a couple more.. one was my new PB 64 pounds 10 ounces. This fish had attitude. 20 minutes of fighting later we hauled it in. The fish did not give up until we got him in the net.. loved the fight. Would have loved to go today but it is just too nasty out.
