    Cat fishing out of Hopewell

    Went out at 11:30 this morning (high tide ) fished for 4 hrs had four fish 33" ,34",37", and a 44" with 27.5" girth. . Caught the biggest within the first 15 minutes of fishing. . I had forgot my gloves in the truck so pics weren't very nice .. Whoever says don't have teeth outta see my fingers . The 44" fish pulled me to him .The 37" fish took down the creek all up in the bushes It was the most fun I've had in a while

    Nope, catfish dont have teeth, but a mouthfull of 50 grit sandpaper sure will destroy your hands. I caught a few of the blue cat's flatter-headed cousins today but only up to 8 lbs and not on my yak. Still fun tho! Way to get em!

    Very nice!

    Do you fish the James or Appomattox? I fished City Point on Saturday and got just 1 1-2 pounder. Got a 10-20 pounder and a 30-40 pounder Saturday evening on slack tide on the James near Richmond.

    Awesome pics. Not looking for secret spots but do you launch from a private spot or from Hopewell Yacht club by the bridge? Maybe some where else.

    Thanks for the info. I havent been down by City Point since I was a teenager. That might have been a few years or decades ago.
