Lee and I won the VA-Outdoors "FROG ONLY" tournament yesterday on the Potomac with a 3 fish limit....14.60 lbs and 6.85 big fish. Nice day compared to day before. Thank you weather men. ALL fish caught on Spro frogs in Aquia Creek on Potomac River. Another great day to remember with my son and net man. HA

Both mine and Lee's birthday's were this past weekend.....so we did what we love best....went fishing of course. Had a great time at Lake Anna. Put 16 lbs 4 oz. on the scales at Anna Point Marina by Noon and off the water before the summer crowds hit the water. An enjoyable day.

Lee and I have been out on the Potomac (staying mostly in the Aquia area), a total of seven times since early May. The bite has been WAY off. Last year, it was taking at least 20 lbs to win a tournament. This year, it takes only 16 lbs. A lot of speculation about what is happening...so who knows. Anyway, here are a couple of fish from the last time out. My biggest so far this spring....a 5.5 lb. fish. Also, cudos to my buddy, Dutch Baldwin, for his recent Bowfishing kills on snakeheads (54 in one night). The river is overrun with them presently.

Lee and I fished the VA-Outdoors.com "Ironman" tournament on the Potomac this past Saturday. A true event not for the faint of heart, it began at 6AM and weigh-in was at 12:30PM for first session and 8PM for the second session. We did OK by getting the last money spot for 6th place. Tough fishing on the river right now with weights way down. I see the river in decline and hope it straightens out soon.

This summer has been good to Lee and I on the Potomac River. We have won a couple of tournaments, placed 2nd & 3rd in a couple, and placed in & just out of the money in a few. All in all a very enjoyable season. However, my best outting thus far, has been last Friday when Lee caught his Personal Best Bass and Snakehead. The bass weighed 7.65 lbs which helped us win the VA-Outdoors Weekday Series for a total of 17.55 lbs. The snakehead weighed in at a whopping 15.04 lbs for another personal best. Of course, my job was to net them, but Ohhhh!!! what a memory.
