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."
Big Bass went to Richard Roselle with a 4.02 pound lunker.
The next division 11 event will be held May 15th on the Potomac River. For more information, contact director Scott Randall at (540)421-1120.
