We moved into Lake Barcroft in Falls Church last month and my father in law and I went down to one of the beaches this afternoon to wet a line. Second cast and this pig hits the Rebel crawdad in about three feet of water. My biggest lmb ever! :D Andy

Had to drag'em thru the muck to get him to shore! Haven't fresh water fished in a couple of years and wasn't expecting to catch anything so it suprised the heck out of me!

Congratulations. That's a nice fish. I got my biggest bass when I was 9 years old and haven't broke the record yet! Crazy to get a bass that size in water that shallow this time of year. Sweet!

Nice fish Andy. I lived in that area for the last five years, but just moved to Arlington. I guess I should have wet a line more often in the lake.

My best friends wife grew up on Lake Barcroft and we have fished it since the 80s and have had some great luck there. Her folks had a waterfront house with a dock and 2 boats. Sadly they moved 4 yaers ago,and their house was torn down for a new mansion.
Congrats on a great fish.

Thanks for the kind words, it was quite the suprise to get a hit like that! And apologies for not mentioning that it is a private lake.
Tight lines - Andy

I just didn't want anyone to waste their time by going and finding out the hard way. I worked there for 4 summers and if the guards are doing their job they will turn you away without a pass.
