First - caution, I am new to posting on forums! Don't yet know what a Topic Tag is but I'll do my homework and find out. :Idontknow:

I'm from Waldorf, Maryland (S.E. of Wash DC) and have been fishing the "Middle Potomac" and it's creeks on the MD side since the mid 80's. I started out like many with a 14' jonboat that I added to over the years until the free-board was almost gone to the water line; then I moved up to a 88' Tracker Tournament TX that took me places a fiberglass boat wouldn't go. I had to take about a decade off due to work travel until I hit retirement, then I dusted off my rods and purchased a used Ranger DVS185 with a 150 Merc. Now I can run the "Middle" from one launch site! :eyebrows:

I make my own Spinner, Buzz, Jigs, Shakers, and soft plastic baits; had to stop the soft plastics though, the wife ran me out of the kitchen. :cry4:

If anyone in the So. MD area would like to join me for a day on the river let me know, I'm looking for another retiree to buddy up with. I would also like someone to show me other locations like Anna, or waters they like. Active military get a free ride.

Hooked some Snakehead out there and would like to do my part to rid the river of them. :dazed-7:

Cheers,

Welcome Home!

The people that hate you, don't know you. They dislike the funhouse mirror image they have of you.

Sir, that would be great, but I should be moving to Louisiana in a couple of weeks for a new job. I can put you in contact with some people that know the James river if you want.

Cheers,

A year later and the offer still stands.

 

EDIT 02/05/13 Bass Resource members who are active military, or first responders, with active ID, get a free day; they can share my tackle if their's is not available. PM me for details.

Not quite a year yet big guy, but close enough.

 

I left a post asking permission to have Zoff and I come up for a visit in the spring time in the Southeast section, but as we age we have a tendency to look over things , I understand and thats ok buddy !  :laugh5:

 

And if you wish to learn a few things about Anna still, well I am up for that as well, so lets go fishin !!!

Ya, I think all we need is to set a date :)  I forget where the post is, but it's not needed.  Let me know what looks good for you both.
