Middle Potomac River Fishing
Launched out of Aqualand marina and fished near the 301 bridge. Found a nice drop off and a 20 foot flat a little out front of the marina. Caught a few Spot, Big white perch and a small striper, Also caught 3 blue catfish. Non stop action for about 30 minutes for me and the others on my boat. Moved after keeping some perch for bait and tried to fish the pilings during the mid day and had no luck. Ran a little down the river about a couple miles to a creek mouth flowing into the river, the water went from 70 feet to 20 and figured i would see some fish on the depth finder cause there was bait everywhere. Saw large schools below us, not sure what they were but couldn't get em to bite. We were fishing fish finder rigs on the drop off, with 1 oz weights and live perch, no bites, moved a couple places kept seeing fish but couldn't get bit. I fish the upper Potomac a lot, mostly from shore, does anyone fish around the 301 bridge or upper Potomac and know of any schools of striper's that stay down this way in the summer? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Ive caught little ones at fletcher's and around that area during the summer, but always undersized.
