Tips for the potomac and northeast river?

Recommended Posts

I have a club tournament coming up the end of this month on the potomac river. we are launching ut of smallwood. i also am fishing a tourney out of the northeast river the middle of may. ive never been to either before and would really like to get on em good. can anyone lend some tips? you can pm if you dont wanna publicise them. i have a tracker with a 60hp that runs about 40 mph so i can run a bit but no as far as a glass rig.

First off get your self a good map.  The river has a ton of hazards up and down it from barges, pilings, rocks, etc.  Most of the major creeks produce fish year round.  The main structure is grass but you can find good wood, pilings, docks, marinas, riprap.  Remember the river is tidal so the fish are always moving up and down during the day.  I prefer moving baits like spinners and cranks pretty much year round, but you can thrown anything when you find some fish.  Jigs, plastics, swimbaits, etc..  Once the summer heats up, you can really catch them on top water pretty much all day long.
