A Day To Remmember
Location: Potomac River
As some of you know I did a seminar at Bass Pro in March of this year and I did a raffle for a trip to fish with me for a day to catch a Walleye or muskie for free. Out of all the names I had to pick from, Ryan Blaylock of Columbia, MD was the winner. On the 5th of July I was able to take Ryan out fishing. He had never caught either of the two species and 7/5/14 was a day he will never forget. Ryan landed 2 Walleyes each close to 5 pounds and to top it off he also landed 2 muskies. The first muskie was 37 inch and the second one around 33 inches with a beautiful pattern that I have never seen before. The muskies were released quickly due to the surface temp being 80 degrees. It was a good day for his first time fishing for them and my first day being on the water all year.
DNR Note: Mike, we're debating the 33" fish, we think it's a Northern Pike though it's very rare for that section of the Potomac River, the patterns on these fish can vary greatly.
