    devildogcollier,

    First off, like the others, I thank you for your service. I'm retired Air Force, 24 years, 3 months, 10 days. I appreciate your and your family's sacrifices. Where are you stationed? Quantico?

    Now to fishing...if you don't mind driving north a little and you are welcome in my boat anytime. I put in at Leesylvania State Park, just south of Woodbridge, just north of Quantico MCB on the mighty Potomac River. Lots of great places to fish.

    If you're looking for bank fishing spots in that area, I can help you out there too.

    Let me know.

    Tight lines.

    Eric, when Chuck makes an offer like that, you better take it. You'll be fishing with a BOC Hall-Of-Famer...you can't beat that!

    One thing is for sure, you are smack dab in the middle of some great fishing. The best way for you to find a good fishing spot is to walk outside, lick your finger, hold it up, and see which way the wind is blowing. Then head in that direction with tackle in hand until you reach water. :wink:
