How late in the Potomac?

Recommended Posts

Are the fish still biting in Nov. & Dec in the Potomac?  Bass and Crappie?  

Thanks for any advice.  I'll be fishing in the Willow Landing area on Sunday morning.

They bite well all the way through the winter.  With sustained colder weather you'll have to slow down a little, and look for warmer water around rip rap and discharges, but I fished straight through last year with good success.

You can fish the Potomac all year.

Right now the grass has not all died and the spinnerbait bite is on.

Give it a try and let us know how you did.  :)

Yea, He had to back the boat up to break up the ice where he was fishing.

Winter tis the season to break out the Silver Buddies and the Mann's 3" avocado Stingray Grubs rigged on a 1/4oz ball head jig so that the hook comes out the third ring from the tail.  Rig it with the tail horizontal and fish it on spinning gear.  Bass and crappie love the little flat tail grub.  They are hard to find and I finally went to Mann's to order mine.  These are very popular Potomac winter baits.

Where are you going to launch your boat??? If you are going out of Aquia Creek let me know and I can put you on some extremely hot spots right now. ;)
