    My friend invited me on his boat to see if the large cows have come into the river. We were fishing in a river connected to the Chesepeake Bay in Maryland. We had all the odds against us. 25 MPH winds, snow, muddy water conditions, the air temp was 34 degrees and the water temp was 43 degrees.

    Here are the fish I caught:

    My biggest of the day at 36lbs;

    Cut live/fresh herring. The bigger ones were caught on the head.

    What a day blacky, great pix.:cool2: 35 year's ago I fished down there for the Shad in the Deer creek and the main branch. I guess that fishery all but disapeared. I remember walkin out on the Dam breast to watch the guy's catching cat, they were some of the biggest cat I ever saw, I guess they dont let anyone fish out there any more.
