They just had the PRAC tourney and a guy won it with a 32 lber. 44 boats fished only 10 or so wieghed. It's possible to catch the big boys,,,, just have to be in the right place at the right time.

Big T,
What are you using to catch your fish? I had no luck with umbrellas over the weekend, switched to spoons, and caught only baby's.

Bigt and roach , Myself and partner Tim won that tourney but are also experiencing the same lockjaw. guys that have hooked up and did so with some consistancy did report going to smaller shads. We fished some different places yesterday and also the very spot where we've pulled 2 fish over 30lbs and i slot fish we had what we consider ideal conditions, bait, water temp and big fish. Still nada. Weather and small baits I believe have more to do with lock jaw............Bill Gimbel Dahlgren on the potomac
