    Week ending April 25, 2009

    The weather has been all over the place and so has the fish, but we're catching them and its been good, lots of adjustments and I like it that way .

    Tidal Potomac River

    I worked staging areas and deep marinas the first part of the week. Most of those fish were caught on drop-shots and shaky heads (you won't hear that to often in one of my Potomac reports). But as the week progressed I moved back south and went back to a red XCalibur lipless crankbait, Booyah Boogie Baits, and shallow running crankbaits. I mixed in grass fishing with some marsh fishing. We did very well with herring colored Booyah Vibra-Flx spinnerbaits in the marsh. On Friday I was in the run and gun mode and had a couple good ol' boys that were willing to run with me. We caught fish on just about every stop on a whole variety of lures. Look for the major spawn to happen on this next full moon, but I said that about the last new moon. I covered the river this week in Occoquan, Chicamuxen, Chopawamsic, Arkendale, and Aquia Creek.

    Lake Anna

    Did not fish here this week.

    Rappahannock River

    No report here this week.

    Other Places

    I traveled down to Buggs Island this past week and hit them pretty hard however we did not have any big fish. I worked around the mid-lake area. We found the fish inside the coves relating just out in front of the bushes. They were more than willing to whack a firetiger Bomber Flat A crankbait. I look for the big girls to pull in tight to the bushes this coming week.

    Sponsor of the week: Mac's Service Center

    For a second straight week I want to let you guys know about a guy I lean on very hard to help me out that is not an official sponsor. Mac McManus own Mac's Service Center in Ashland, Va. (804) 368-0213 and takes care of all the needs on my GEICO Powersports suburban. I just had Mac hook me up with some new Cooper Tires and they ride superbly while towing my Z-9. They have a full service auto repair shop and Mac is one of us, a devout Bass Dude. His special this week I believe is buy a set of Cooper Tires and he'll come over and wash your bass boat!!
