Roselle Takes Win on Potomac

Mike Roselle of LaPlata, Maryland takes the Ram AFT D11 win on the Potomac River on July 10th with a five fish limit weighing in at 15.02 pounds. He also took Big Bass with a 3.73 kicker. "I fished main river grass beds protected from the wind with two different colors of the BHF custom lures swim jigs. Also caught a fish late on a spro frog in matted grass that helped cull up. The lower end of the tide seem to produce the better quality bites. The new st criox avid x series rods was a big key to catching the fish because they are sensitive enough where you can feel if there is any grass on the bait fowling it up." Roselle said.

John Till Wins on the Potomac River

April 24th, John Till won the Ram American Fishing Tour Division 11 qualifier on the Potomac River with a weight of 15.51 pounds. "I fished three different mid-river creeks, the first two creeks were busts – caught no keepers.  The third creek I caught a solid fish right away and stayed for most of the day.  The bite was slow until the tide was 2/3 out, and then turned on.  The bite was short and strong, but lasted only about an hour, and then completely died.  I caught all keepers on a shallow running crankbait around wood, pads and scattered grass.  All were pre-spawners."
