What do you guys like to use on the potomac in the winter? I fish a small side offshoot with very slow water, and its about 40 feet wide, and maybe 15 feet deep in the middle.

I do believe Traveler2586 would be the best to answer that.

Sorry, CP is up north of me above the falls; I don't get up that way much any more, my boat is wrong for that water.


But I would think small and slow; vegetation will die off and bass will move back to deeper water especially around wood cover. Slow spinnerbaits, small but deep diving crankbaits, jig and craw combinations, tubes, jig & grubs combos work well.

CP, look in the Northeast Forum for MD Who's Who, the guys there know a lot about that stretch of the river.

Also, Ken Penrod is a long time guide on the Potomac and has a good web site with some info; he also has written some good books on fishing the Potomac ( Fishing The Upper Potomac River & Pursuing River Smallmouth Bass ), you can order them from his web site at: http://www.penrodsguides.com/ or find them on-line at ebay or search Bing.

Also see this: http://www.penrodsgu...OUmagazine.html for some good articles.

Cheers,

no, its not goose creek. look up "bles park" on google maps. its a small offshoot of the potomac. it goes off the main river and connects back a few miles down.
