    Went on the Potomac for the first time Saturday night. Tried to find a spot to catch perch but caught a nice eel to start. Decided to cut him up right there and start fishing for cats and perch at the same time. About 10 minutes later, I caught a little 10 pound catfish followed shortly by a 3 foot long gar. Moved a little down river and finally got into a bunch of perch. Moved about 100 ft and dropped a few overboard. After 20 minutes one of my rods started to bend and line stripped off. After a good fight, I finally landed a nice 30 pound kitty. Wind couldn't decide to blow or not all night. Made for night running on an unfarmiliar river a long trip. I finally used a sabiki rig for the first time. Caught perch 3, 4 and even 5 at a time! I WILL be using that again! Ended up catching 2 more 10 pound catfish and called it a night.

    jeremaid. Don't worry about that retard, Eric. He catches my bait for me! We haven't been able to fish together since December when I caught a 58 back behind the power plant. Like jpritch said "Brotherly love". Too bad We live so far apart (I'm in Alexandria, he's near Suffolk). Kinda hard to teach the youngster how to catch big catfish!
