Heck of a time fishing with Capt Chuck, he was determined to get us on some fish. Not only did he put us on fish but some big ones. Definitely making plans to come back this winter!

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 :-)

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! !!!!

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.

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.
  ~ Myron

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.
  ~ Nicholas
Captain chuck worked his A** off to get us fish this man just would not give up great guy amazing time highly recommend.
  ~ Nick
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!
  ~ Oak
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!
  ~ Richard
