5-29-08 DC Rockfish Report + PICS

Jeff English and I hit the water at 5:15 this morning.  Trolled the Washington Channel for 3+ hrs and only a blue cat to show for it.  sad Moved up towards the long bridges and nothing there either.  Kept going upriver and trolled the Kenney Center...........NADA.  Moved all the way up to Fletchers and did several passes there without a strike.   ???  Moved up to Chain Bridge to see if there was any herring there.............Yeap, but current was too fast to fish.

Changed our tactics and jigged for herring just below Fletchers.  After putting a few herring in the boat, we put out some cut bait.  BAM.  Two throw backs.  big_smile

Changed tactics again and started putting out live bait.  Oh Yeah!
Caught 4 keepers (18.5, 19, 22, and 24).  big_smile
Here's Jeff with the 19..........
