About Your James River Catfishing Guide, Chris Eberwien
I have been fishing the James River as a guide for 20 years, the last 10 years full-time. I like to take people fishing for Big Blue Cats - the bigger the better! The largest catfish caught in Virginia is 143 pounds. I want one of my clients to catch a bigger fish!
Call me and let's go fishing! (804)449-6134

Citations Guaranteed! That's a blue cat over 30 pounds or you pay 1/2 price for your trip!

James River fishing and Other Rivers
We fish for huge catfish in the James, Potomac, Chickahominy, Appomattox, Rappahannock, Mattaponi and Pamunkey Rivers. We release all cats over 20 pounds. We can target smaller fish upon request. Ask me about Rockfish in the Spring and catching Croaker from May thru June.

Daimen and Lucy the Catfish
Four year old Daimen may have had the height, but I think Lucy the catfish may have had him on weight. Lucy was released as we release all trophy catfish even though Daimen insisted she wanted to go home with him.
