Went out of Pohick Bay Regional Park Saturday night (last minute thing). Took about an hour and a half to catch enough shad. No wind, no one else on the water - beautiful night. I did a lot of riding just to get to know the river a little since I have only fished from there to Mattawoman Creek before. This time I went upriver almost to the Wilson Bridge. Caught several in the 10 - 17 pound range before I went back down to a spot I stopped at before. After I put my last rod out and turned around to turn off the light, one rod started to scream. After a couple minutes I finally got him in the boat and weighed him - 28.6 pounds. Not a giant, true, but I was by myself, trying to video and net the fish in the dark! And I had a good time on the water - my first time out in 6 weeks!
