A- watch the president again...

Case closed. Check out the pics BobCat aka Bob the Mailman and I (Capt JOE) aka striperjoe
landed while fishing on the Catfish Cadillac on Monday with  the heater on board keeping us toasty!

 54 lbs !
*** check out the belly and the fish has a big one too....

"I LET BOB" catch the bigger of the two, after all he is just a master of baits and not a captain ....yet!

Actualy Bob landed both fish. He let me hold it. Such a nice guy!
 This was 41 lbs and both fish bit once and took the pole down. Awesome time of year to land a lunker. Scott at 804-690-3875 for Pamunkey River and Mattaponi Trips and The Mighty James River for me and my crew.

Come see us ! Thx Captain Joe Cannon 1-804-690-8469

Gearing up at GreenTop !

Spend that money ! Went to GreenTop today and did not do too bad. I did buy some awesome looking spoons for the "hickory shad" - Baby Tarpon on the James. If you have never caught one it's gotta be the closest thing to catching tarpon. they swim lightning fast and most times will come out of the water and jump about 1-2 ft in the air in a futile atttempt to spit the hook.
  Captain Joe - Call today and pick a day in April - Fast ! Capt Joe 804-690-8469 or Capt Scott (804-690-3875) on a 21 foot skiff that flies up and down the river !

The Grand Slam - Stripers, Catfish and Hickories ! Full Day of Action !

Butermilk Gang 1-5-2013

The ole Buttermilk gang came back for their annual 3 man tourney. Each man had 2 wins under his belt so this was the "rubber match". Danny was the winner as Chris and Goo had to listen to his gloating all the way home to Md.
I don't have any good pics because we did not catch any good fish. My fish in the gill net were bigger than Danny's but he is still the "champion".

We are now starting another annual affair called the Grand Slam. It consist of a spring trip(awesome time to go) and will consist of a formula I have not yet devised nor have they. It will consist of a combination of BIG stripers, awesome hickory shad and the all mighty catfish (blue or flathead).

Stay tuned to our website for more fishing trips coming up. Cats are biting 24/7/365. But spring is a good time to vary and catch some 20-30 lb stripers who have migrated up river to spawn. If you have never caught a hickkory shad, check it out for sure.  You will find out real quick why they are also called the "baby tarpons" - they dart through the water and then jump out and spin around in midair.
