Catfish (Ictalurus furcatus) AKA: Flathead, North American Cat
You may already know the James River is famous for having some of the largest catfish in North America. Hold Fast Charters would like to invite you and friends out for a chance to trophy size Catfish.
Catfish can be caught year round in the James River and our primary techniques for catching them are to anchor up and fish on the bottom with fresh cut bait and other attractive smelling delicacies to lure them in. These opportunistic feeders can weigh over a hundred pounds and even give an experienced angler the fight of his life.
All the rods & reels, lures, bait, ice and other gear will be provided on the boat but bring your own cooler if you want to take home what you catch. Bottled water is provided for everyone but you’ll want to bring your own food & other drinks if plan to eat during the trip. Adult beverages are ok too, but must be handled in an adult manor. Please remember to bring only plastic or can drinks, “NO GLASS BOTTLES”and “NO BANANAS” are allowed on the boat. As a safety precaution, it is at the Captains discretion to cancel and/or rescheduled any trip due to bad weather or any other unforeseen issue that may arise before or during a trip.

– Soft soled shoes
– Appropriate Clothing
