Out last week, 4/21/2015 and the water was warm on Potomac Creek. After the wind calmed down by 7 pm the water was smooth and the fish were jumping! Caught one nice 8 lb snakehead about 28 inches and one nice largmouth 4 lbs. in the same set of pads.
Sorry left the camera in the car that day but will have pictures next trip.
Let me know how you are doing and where you are fishing.
Wow hit the water on a warm but windy day! Made kayaking hard work, it was low tide when I put in and I paddled till most of high tide came in but no luck on Potomac Creek in Stafford area. I saw some nice snakeheads jumping up river in the shallow flats but no takers on my rattle traps, 6″ white frog with a red head or my orange buzz bait! They seemed to be cruising and not staying in one area since no weeds were growing yet. The protected little cutouts with less wind were where I saw the few jumpers of the day as opposed to the windy side of the river which makes sense. Scared a lot of carp and a few big catfish as I paddled around these low areas but not many snakeheads yet.
Nothing fights better in freshwater than a Snakehead!
