Outdoors Report - October 17, 2012

 

Fishing continues to be quite good. Hunting has been slow for deer from reports we have heard. There are a LOT of acorns in the woods and deer don’t have to move much to feed. 

Potomac River

Aqualand (301-259-0572) did not have a lot of interaction with anglers this week but they did hear that croaker were still around and hitting squid. Puppy drum were also hitting. Catfish of great size were biting well and perch were hitting minnows and small baits. Ken’s Tackle (898-1011) reported that crappie were still taking jigs and grubs in Aquia Creek. Minnows are also working well. Colonial Beach was a good spot for puppy drum, and stripers if you used spot or squid for bait.

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.
