    Default Sunday May 3rd fishing Potomac

    Started about 8:00 AM trolling SW of Saint Clements island, spent 5 hours trolling north and south, lot of bait and some nice marks, no bites.
    Only saw one rock lost when trying to net by lone fisherman , it looked like a keeper.
    Seems to me they should shut down Rockfish across the board for a few years, it worked well in the 80-s, think we would learn fro the past.
    When will netters stop taking whole schools out before they even make it back to the bay?

    The gill nets completely wipe out the fish in front of my house. It feels like months for a few fish repopulate the area. The pound nets appear to be a bit more selective on the by catch. But those gill nets - uggg! Complete dead zone in their wake.
