Lower Potomac Variety
Location: Potomac river
Bottom fished the lower Potomac below the 301 bridge. Caught several spot, croaker and perch but the big surprise came while testing umbrella rigs for bottom fishing. We caught 13 perfect sized catfish while dragging a 15 inch castable umbrella rig on the bottom in 14 feet of water. We placed an in-line weight up front, left the bait arms expanded but empty and put bloodworm and cut-bait on the long center arm. Dragging the bait kept the bait just above the bottom with zero snags.
