See what our satisfied customers had to say about FISH UNLIMITED GUIDE SERVICE!!!

Captain Chuck was a class act that resulted in boating multiple fish of my lifetime. Captain Chuck worked very hard to put TWO, fifty five pound blue cats in my hands. Chuck worked hard, was very polite, and made sure we had the trip of a lifetime. He maintained excellent equipment and paid attention to the details. If anyone is looking for the blue cat hotspot of the United States, you want the best guide in that area. Chuck is that person!

Captain Chuck put us on fish in very poor condition. Caught some nice fish he never stopped or gave up worked very hard to put us on fish on a day I thought we would have no luck at all. Thanks Chuck awesome job. Also I am an amputee he was so helpful in helping around the boat could not ask for a better guy!
~Jeff~
Captain Chuck is the man! Showed my father and I a great day of fishing that I will certainly never forget! Best experience I've had on a guided trip he went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you Chuck, we will certainly be seeing you again!

Went fishing 12/28. Best guide on the river. I would not use anyone else. He was so hard working. We were catching fish when no one else was. His knowledge of the river and fishing is unmatched.
~Arnold~
Had a blast with some great people including Captain Chuck! He is the man if you want to catch fish. He shared great stories and experiences he has had on the James River. Can't wait to get back out on the water with him and more of my buddies. All I can say is that there were three of us fishing and all three landed citation blue catfish!
~Cody~
If I ever get an opportunity to visit the Richmond, VA. area again, my first priority is to book a day with Capt. Chuck!! He is a very hard working guide that will do whatever it takes to make sure you get to bend a rod on a big ol' blue!! Class act!
~Todd~
All I can say if big fish are what you are after, Chuck is the man! 76 # right after a 49 before 10 am. He works hard and knows the river. Shares what he knows. Awesome guide! 5 stars
~Barry~
Captain Chuck is a great guide. He knows how and where to fish the river. He worked hard for us to the last minute, never gave up, never got discouraged. The results prove it we caught 6 huge cats, 2 were 50 lbs! There is a lot of luck in fishing, but Captain Chuck seemed to know every hole, he knew the current, he knew where and how to place the boat and bait to cover every possibility. He maximized every single chance we had for a fish and it worked great!

Captain Chuck did a good job for us. I asked him to fish hard for us and he delivered . We played the patience game not giving up when the bite was slow in the summer. We caught three very nice blue catfish that where a blast to reel in ..the fight these blue cats put up is unreal. If Captain chuck can do this when the bite is slow..then I can only imagine how it would be when the bite is good. Thanks for a fine fishing trip Captain chuck.

One word AWESOME...Best day of fishing in a long time. Captain Chuck is a top notch guy and guide. Very skilled fisherman with a lot of attention to detail. Wanted to catch big fish and that's what Captain Chuck led us to do. Cant wait till next time.

The best guide service in Virginia! Captain Chuck put us on the biggest cat's I've ever seen. I've fished the James for 15 years and have never caught catfish that big. He is very professional and knowledgeable about what he does. We will be going back every year. Thanks again captain chuck! !!!!

If you are looking for a GREAT GUIDE you can stop looking, CAPTAIN CHUCK is the BEST GUIDE on the James !!!. We fished 4-11-14 and 4-12-14, the bite was very slow, wind very high, but that never stopped Chuck, he busted his butt looking for citation fish for us, while other guides were coming up empty we were pulling out Blues, even after getting a citation fish in the boat he continued to work for us, (getting multiple hook-ups on really big fish), trying everything he new to get another one in the boat. I have used multiple Guide services in several states and Chuck is the hardest working Guide out there. If you don't catch the Blues its because there not biting, Period. P.S. If you catch a 100#er with green line in his mouth, "it's CHUCK's fault" hahahh! P.S.S. Again Many Thanks to Chuck AND his girlfriend for being so patient and allowing us to stretch our time, just a little :-)

If you are looking for a top quality guide for fishing the James River. I would recommend Chuck without reservation. In my opinion, he's simply the best!

"On the boat Chuck became more like a friend than a hired guide. He could not have done more to make our trip a pleasant, memorable and successful one."

I had such a great time yesterday with Captain Chuck catching my first catfish. What a great experience. Even through the wind and the cold Captain Chuck stuck it out with us and said he would stay till midnight lol. Thank you Captain Chuck I can't wait till next time!

Check out Fish Unlimited Guide Service if you wanna catch some monster James River Blues!!!

This is a old friend of mine so if UR looking to get out on the water and get the fight u always wanted with one of James rivers big boys give him a call.. It's worth every penny to just enjoy the fight a 75 pound blue cat can give you.
