What a great weekend for rockfishing on the Potomac, Nov. 1 & 2. This was my first year to fish rockfish and I entered the local turnanment , thought I had as good a chance as the next man, well I read fishing reports from all the local fisherman that i could find, and all of them said it was to early for large rock that far up river, well you guys were right. 70 boats , have no idea the total fisherman, 2 very good days and about 15 fish checked in. One man on the radio said this was his 5th year and hadnt cought the first fish, I cought 1, it was to small and went back to grow some. My comment is to the Colonial Beach Chamber of Commerce, Why not move the touranment back a couple weeks so there will be a chance of more and larger fish cought. It was a great touranment and I will be back next year just like many others have done, just hope its a little later in the season.

What were the tourny results? I fished saturday, not in tourny, but I'm curious to what was caught. I got a 24" fatty from just south of the Coles Point area. Also marked tons of fish and bait out in the main channel, 40-60'. Caught mine in 37', on a mojo down about 30'. Fish hit the trailer bait behind the mojo, a white chute, 6" shad body. Simply beautiful conditions helped out a one fish day.
