Well, finally got out tishing this weekend!!!!!!!! Headed down to the camper and fished the lower potomac for a couple hours yesterday morning. No skunk, but I've definitely had better days down there. It was my daughters, their friends and me. We ended the day with just a few croaker, spot and white perch. About the time we pulled the boat up to the beach to anchor and head in, I decided to check the tides....Go figure, the 2 hours I had to go out and fish just happened to be Slack at Dead High......no wonder fishing was so slow. There were fish breaking the surface all over the place, I decided to pull up the bottom rigs and throw out the #1 Planers and Clark Spoons. 30-45 min of trolling through schools of bait and breaking fish not even one planer tripped....So I pulled them in and we went back to bottom fishing to round out the day with some more croaker, white perch and spot. I'll be down again next weekend, hopefully the blues will hungry for some clark spooks so I can start to stock my freezer with bait for sharking down in Avon at the end of August!!!! By the way...the boys LOVED being down at the river, it was a great time....I see plenty of river trips in the future now that they are old enough to enjoy the beach!!!!!!

Do any good yet? I'll probably be out sun, Mon, and Tue. Look for the maroon f150 with surf rods standing tall in the bed if your looking to meet up with someone. Good luck bud.
I think you pulled in next to me Monday evening. Watched one of you pull in a shark. My wife ans son walked by you to get a pic of the ponies next to ya. I havnt caught crap all weekend. Skeeters have chased us off the beach every night so far this week. 2 more days to catch something before we leave!

We were out there during the crazy sand storm and made it through that but the skeeters chased us off again Tuesdy night. This is the worst we have ever seen them. Hopefully tonight will be better.
