My whiskerfish obsession started at a very young age, on the muddy banks of the Wabash River in Southern Indiana. Over 40 years have passed and I'm still every bit as obsessed, today, as I was then. Over the years, I have traveled all across the United States to fish many of our Great Country's finest catfish rivers: the Ohio, Mississippi, Tennessee, Maumee, Muskingum, and many others. I've even caught Wels catfish in Italy! As good as these catfisheries are, in my opinion, none compare to the Potomac and James Rivers. Both harbor great numbers of blue catfish, many of which are of trophy class size. Year-round, and like no other rivers that I know of, the Potomac River and the James River both afford anglers a well-above average opportunity to catch a true river monster. That's where I come in. During each and every outing, I will do everything within my abilities to ensure that you land that blue catfish of a lifetime!
I fish with Bottom Dwellers Tackle Catfight rods, paired with either Shimano Tekota reels or Penn Fathom reels. Please, don't worry if you've never fished with a baitcasting reel -- I do ALL of the casting of baits, meaning all that you have to do is reel them in! Please let me know in advance of our outing if you are a lefty. These are tough, proven rod and reel combos; however, if you'd like to bring your own rods, you may. Regrettably, I cannot assume responsibility or liability for broken rods, stripped reel gears, or hurt feelings :-(
