I had my three nephews Logn, Jeffrey, and Jacob up from Norfolk for about three weeks. We really hooked up on some nice Largemouth in the lake behind my house in Ebb Tide Beach (Colonial Beach area). Throughout the three weeks I had to sacrifice some gear for them to catch these fish. They broke one rod in half, lost two reels of line, about 20 lures, and tons of hooks. How else are they going to learn though? To see a kids face after they catch a fish is one of the best feelings, especially if they caught a huge one.

We also caught a bunch of Croaker in the Potomac off of Colonial Beach on the 4th of July. I found a ledge and anchored up on it. We used a traditional bottom rig. My boat, The Pepirmint Patty did well!

We used a carolina rig with a 3/16 oz weight. We used a 2/0 gamakutsu hook with a dark blue worm with sparkles. The little guy Logn was using a extra light action trout rod. It was awesome. Were also using a Orange/black/white torpedo when the evening set in. Both produced fish!
