Outdoors Report - October 24, 2012

Fishing continues to be quite good. It is too bad we are all so busy we are not able to enjoy it as we would like. Hunting continues to be slow for deer from reports we have heard.

Minnows are also working well. Colonial Beach was a good spot for puppy drum, and stripers if you used spot or squid for bait.

Fishing continues to really be worth a trip out to the waterways in our areas.

Outdoors Report - October 3, 2012

Fishing was quite good until the rain upriver on the Rapp muddied the water. The Potomac continues to produce very good fishing.  

Potomac River

Aqualand (301-259-0572) had reports of lots of fish being caught. Catfish are hitting all the time. There are reportedly small but keeper black drum and red drum hitting. Breezy conditions are making it tough on smaller boats to get out though. Some rockfish are hitting but most are throwbacks. White perch are hitting quite well. Squid seems to be the bait of choice for all species now.
