Location: Potomac River
A fishing buddy and I decided to go after the channel cats . The weather was ideal , incoming tide and barometric pressure failing. We fished the Potomac near Farming Road. We started with nighcrawlers then switched to cut bait. We used 3 oz weights and # 2 circle hooks. In 3 hours my cooler was ¾ full with a mix of catfish. The hydrilla is dying off and the fish are returning to shallow water. Sizes ranged from 1-18 lbs. Several anglers mentioned that several 40 lb cats were caught there this week also.
