Potomac 9-20-10

Got out around 1230 and fished the incoming tide. The bite was a little slower today compared to recently but I managed 8 total. Nothing to write home about but its always fun. Biggest fish was a 14 inch LMB caught on a super fluke. Landed a hard fighting 12 inch smallie using a watermelon red zoom tube. Everything else came on either a shad color crankbait, or a crawfish color crankbait. I also caught a 14 inch cat and probably the smallest striper i've ever seen. (just under 10 inches)

Potomac above chain bridge 9/14 and 9/17

Fished the outgoing tide on 9/13. Didn't have much luck for the first 2 hrs. Switched to a crawfish crankbait and started getting bit. Ended up with 6 smallies up to 16 inches, 3 largemouth up to 18 inches and 2 18 inch stripers.

Got a new camera today and had to get on the water and test it out. Went to the same place above the chain bridge. Lost a pretty nice smallie on a rapala. Got 2 more nice smallies, one 15 inches, one 16 inches on consecutive casts to the same spot. Caught a few more dinks then called it a night.
