    Folks, if you're not fishing this time of year, your missing out. I launched at 6:30 this morning, river was high but clear...lots of debris. Went to the usual bait spot but only managed two cutters and one White Sucker in one hour of soaking the net. Went to a drop off and marked fish in 35 feet. I deployed three lines...correction, I intended to deploy three lines but after getting one line in and getting the second baited, the first rod went down...a 22 lber. Rebaited and threw out again, got the second rod in and was baiting the third rod when the other two went down at the same time. Boated a 35 and a 28. It went like this the rest of the morning...never did get the third rod in. All told I boated 17 cats between 18 lbs and 49 lbs. Water temp was 56 degrees and the tide was moving out.

    Here's a pic of the 49 lber and a 37 lber.

    Now stop reading stuff on the computer and get out there and fish!:big_smile:

    Great job Chuck! Grappler had a 4 hour trip like that last night. Had 4 rods go down at one time - 18, 34, 35 and 40! By the way, where did you put in and go to? I haven't fished much below the mouth of the Occocquan.

    I usually launch out of Leesylvania State Park...it's an easy run to some areas just below Quantico MCB, near Piscataway Creek on the MD side.

    I think Chuck, if you fished in a mud puddle yesterday you caught fish. Last night I spoke to two pals. One hit two farm ponds yesterday and caught Crappie and Bass, (5 over 6 pounds) until he was tired of catching and another pal went to the Rappahannock river between Waterview and the Route 3 Bridge and loaded up on Stripers to 42 inches.

    Im leaving Tuesday evening to head up to Silver Spring for the holiday. With that report you have me wanting to drag the boat up, but unfortunatly I cant this time. I might get out on the bay for some striper fishing Friday on my buddys boat but thats not 100%. He doesnt like to fish in the cold weather.
