    Wow what a day!!!!. Bested my best fish three times today. My first cat of the day was 33lbs, then a 26 lb, then a 37 lb 8 oz fish then a 43 lb 4oz fish. DNR was coming along side when another fish hit a 18 lb blue he watch me net it then weigh the fish and released it. He was a nice guy checked everything was in regs like all ways. Cuaght 14 fish total smallest blue was 15 lbs. All the biggest fish were cuaght on 4 1/2 inch bluegills live. Also cuaght 2 nice channel cats one 8 lb and a 5 lb guy bringing the total to 14. was back at the dock loaded and headed home by 1:00 pm.

    The River I fish was the Potomac it is a tidal river which runs into the chesapeake bay, These fish were cuaght below Washington DC, could see National Airport in the background. The fish were cuaght on the last three hours of incoming tide. Until today my biggest was 25 lbs. One thing I learned today I need a bigger net!!!!!! Biggest one was 44 inches long and stuck out it.

    I'm hooked on this blue cat fishing now!!!

    I am still waiting for a day like that. It only happens if you keep a line in the water long enough.

    Sounds like you had a tiring day on the water (in a good way). I bet you had alot of fun catching those big blues. Great report! Also, congrats on your record fish!
