Potomac River Report - 06/03/11

Had the honor of fishing with Curly today on the Potomac. Despite our concern that the launch would be full of trailers with the FLW pros in town, we were pleasantly surprised to see it empty. We quickly unloaded and dropped our first line around 545am.

There was no topwater bite to speak of, but deep diving plugs, silver buddies, and jigs resulted in nearly a dozen bass, 30 stripers, a handful of blue cats, a channel cat, a walleye, and a smallmouth bass. We tried to find a snakehead or two, but came up empty handed. Actually, Curly's first five fish were five different species!

Curly was the LMB master. I contributed some stripers and served as the photographer. Anyhow, here are the pics!

If it were easy, they'd call it catching!

Looks like you guys had a great day on the water. Some nice looking fish.

Were most of the catches from using deep diving plugs? Looks like Curly was having a lot of luck with the blue plug.

I had a 5 fish limit at 9-7 that would have put me in the top 100 FLW, but not to make the top 20 cut.  The majority of stripers came on silver buddies.  If we had just targeted stripers, we would have caught a lot more smile .

Well done.  I wouldn't have expected a walleye below Georgetown.  I caught a SMB in Dyke Marsh years ago and thought we were both hallucinating, but this shows otherwise.
