5/14/20 Upper Potomac

I was not planning on going out today, but saw the weather looked good and my wife said sometimes the trips I do not plan are the best.  So I headed for Whites Ferry and got on the water around 10am.  This is what the ramp looked like:

I started near the Ferry on the VA side.  I got no bites for a long time.  I decided to float down and worked the island.  After I ate my lunch, I put a jointed fluke on an underspin hook and finally caught my first fish since January!

I was pumped.  I floated down some more and started working shoreline eddies with a weedless ned rig and hooked a good one.

It was just shy of 16 inches, but thick!  A couple casts later in the same spot, I hooked another.

And one more before I left that spot.

After that I floated down to the next eddy and got one before I floated out.

It was 13", but hefty.

No more bites and I headed back to the Ferry by around 4:30pm or so.  5 fish total and I had the river to myself until about 3pm or so.  Saw 2 other boats.

Nice!  I had planned on fishing the Goose Creek area of the river today, but an online work meeting changed that.  But tomorrow I'm getting out somewhere.

Nice! I planned to get up a wade fish goose early this morning but played poker until 2am ..... at least I came away with some extra cash for the tackle kitty.
