Lee's First Snakehead

Lee and I fished the VAO "Dog Days Duel" on the Potomac River yesterday and he caught his first snakehead. This one is not very big (3.18 lbs), but big enough to win the snakehead sidepot.

St. Judes Tx on the Potomac River

Region 9 and Russ Shetley held their St. Judes Tx yesterday out of LSP and had the biggest turnout they have ever had with 51 boats. What a worthy cause. The representative from St. Jude's stated that 1.2 million dollars is spent daily, to keep up with everything that they do to help the kids and families. Hats off to them. Russ handed them a check for $5100 from this TX alone. Proud to be associated with such a great group of guys that contribute to these events.
Now, for the fishing. Lee and I went back down to Arkindale where we had been on a group of fish last week and the fish were there, but all were
14"-15" big uns. Fished there until about 10AM, then ran to Chickamuxen and caught the same size. Went back to Arkindale for the incoming tide and same ol, same ol. We caught over 20 fish with 85% of them on the frog. Weighed in 9.79 lbs.
VAO had quite a showing with over 5 teams. Wayne, G, Squire, Mike, Tank, JJ,Jr., Cash, Bfelts, myself and Lee. If I forgot some one, sorry bout that. Congrats to Tank and his partner for a fifth place finish with 14+ lbs. and Squire / Mike for a third place with 16+ lbs. Way to represent guys. First place had over 20 lbs.
BTW....did I say it was HOT yesterday.
