A Day of Rockfish and Snakeheads

Type: Tidal
Region: Southern
Location: Potomac River and Potomac Creek

I started my fishing trip yesterday the 12th of September at the 301 bridge on the Potomac. Using a rattle trap and a top water red fin I caught plenty of rockfish on the rip rap breaks. The fish were between 16 to 24 inches and they really bit when the tide was creating a rip. After getting my limit of rockfish I ran up to Potomac Creek and shot 2 snakehead fish with my bow. I have never targeted both rock and snakehead in the same day. Seeing a couple snakehead and rockfish in the same cooler is very weird and to think they now live in the same body of water is even weirder.
