    I am shipping out next week to Basica training for the US Coast Guard. And the week before i go in ive trying to catch the species of fish i havnt spent much time targeting, catfish.

    Im not looking for monster just to catch a few. looking for a spot on the potomac between poolsville to Williamsport to give a try from the shore. Any adviceon locations, bait, and rigs would be much appreciated.

    Tonight I am headed to around dam # 4 and will be using chicken liver. Will post on how i do.
