    Lawrence Lewis Jr. Park

    Anybody fished the fishing pier there? Do big blue cats live in the river around this area, and would they be reachable from the pier in winter time?

    I've never fished there, but have fished around that area and Hopewell from boat. Some of the largest blue cats in the state come from the Hopewell area of the james river. I would give it a shot.

    any suggestion on where holes are off it? Think I may give it a go over the holidays, if I can't find anyone that's going toging.

    I wouldn't waste my time there. Charles City is a long haul from Hampton. I would go to James River Bridge pier. The reports say catfish are being caught there now. Also, you wouldn't find much bait to catch with a castnet this time of year at the LL Jr. pier, but I have seen and caught bait there in the warmer months. I'd say if you go, go no sooner than next Spring.
