    Hey out there . Trying to find a great place to take my friends to catch catfish in Maryland. I live in between DC and Baltimore. Anywhere good around there other then the Potomac ?

    Any Farm ponds or something ?

    Couple places close to you, that I can think of is the Putuxent river, Slip up on the Susquehannaabove or below Conowingo Dam. If you really want to get into some channels, cross over the Bay bridge and head for the choptank river. Probably some of the best channel cat waters in Maryland. You said except the potomac, so I won't mention what can be caught there.

    I was down too. just got back from the lower Potomac. Wasn't the best but it was steady all day, for a full moon. ended up with 19, mostly in the 20's 30's and a couple 40's, biggest was around 47#.
