All This Rain is Killing My Fishing!

Weeks of Rain on East Coast Slow Fishing

Well it’s been slow for me at least.  I’ve put in on Potomac Creek, Aquia Creek and the fish bites are far and few between.  Kayaking, Bass Boatin’ and not much to show for it.  Water temps have been around 64 degrees F and the river is muddy brown and fast.  I see fish on the sonar but not many takers, a few bass here and there granted some nice ones, 2-5 lbs. but not many.  Even the snakeheads are not hitting that much a few nice ones before all this rain but the last two trips nothing.  I saw two bug out as I cruised past their “sun bathing” spots last Thursday on Accokeet Creek(off Potomac Creek) but not biters that day.  Fouled hooked this shad one day while I was kayaking fishing way up Potomac Creek but not other bites that day.

What are you guys doing to land some fish?  Any fish any where leave your rainy weather tips.

See you on the water,

Bass Fishing Now Since Snakeheads are “Sleeping”

Bass Fishing Time Since Snakeheads Seem to Hibernate

Well no snakehheads this time of year for sure but the bass fishing has been good on jigs and creature baits  for me.  Crankbaits and swim baits have been slow but then I have not fished as much as some of you this winter I am sure.  Especially with all the warm weather I am sure many of you are killin’ it.

Catfishing is On!

North Carolina Blue Catfish State Record 12/20/15
North Carolina Blue Catfish State Record 12/20/15

I have a few catfish friends that have done great this winter hitting the James or Potomac Rivers in central Virginia. Jamie caught a 60lb channle catfish on the Potomac River at Leesylvania by the power plant bridge just before Christmas on that 72 degree sunny Saturday- way to go!  (I will get that photo and post it here next week).  What about that new North Carolina state record that went around Facebook, a channel cat weighing in at 105lbs. and the 94lb blue catfish another state record!
