Got out this past sunday. Launched the kayak at old town in alexandria, paddled across the potomac to a cove next to the Wilson bridge. I had been fishing for a couple of hours without a bite. Came up to a fallen tree and started fishing it with a jig. Second cast, had a nice thump. Hooked up and it felt big!! I get it up to the kayak and it was about a 28 inch catfish! I was looking for a bass but I'll take it. It flopped around for a few seconds and then threw the hook. Had one bite the rest of the day and missed. Supposed to rain 4 days this week:) Hopefully I'll be able to wet a line.
There it is! 90 ish lb tarpon, it was almost lunch for a hammerhead shark!
