Tidal Obsession Charters LLC
One of our top picks in Hopewell. Tidal Obsession is a charter that just loves fishing Virginia’s tidal rivers and focuses heavily on catching trophy Catfish, which is what they will take you out to do. They love taking anglers out on the river and showing them a good time by first teaching them the necessary techniques, then taking them to the best spots and finally helping you reel in a massive catch. Please note, all Catfish over 10 pounds in weight will be released in order to preserve the fishery.
On every two paying adults, they will take two children up to the age of 15 for free.
You will fish aboard their 20 foot Lund dual console boat, which was originally built in 2003 and restored in 2016. It is powered by a 200 HP Honda engine with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots, and has a capacity for 4 guests. The boat is equipped with Garmin GPS and fishfinder, and also has a VHF radio. There is also all the necessary safety equipment such as life jackets, flares and a CPR-trained crew.
The boat also has a wireless trolling motor, an icebox for your catch and an anchoring system which is useful when you locate the perfect fishing spot and want to remain there in order to catch the fish. There is also a livewell for your live baits.
Tidal Obsession fishes in the James, Mattaponi, York, Pamunkey and Potomac rivers in Virginia. Each river has its own charm and attractiveness, and offer some of the best specimens of Blue Catfish. These Catfish are not just the lazy bottom feeders that people think they are. They will slam the bait like a bull seeing red, fight hard, and taste yummy. The crew will provide you with the necessary equipment in form of rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits. No fishing license is necessary as you will be covered on the boat. You are welcome to bring a cooler for fish you plan to take home.

Had a great time fishing with Son in law. Caption Jacob did a great job in all ways. He met us at the marina on time with boat in the water and holding fresh bait. Boat is 20ft Lund with a 200 hp honda. Great ride, felt safe and was fast. Plenty of room for fishing 8 to 10 rods. A cold front and full moon seemed to slow the bite. Captain Jacob worked hard looking for the fish moving several times. While telling and showing us on the side view fish finder what was going on under water. Showing us several ship wrecks. Caught a couple. Had lots of good bites And lost a couple nice ones. Highly recomended. Check ot his facebook page Tidal obsession LLC for all the monster blue catfish pictures. Will be going back. Thanks captain Jacob!
