Grizzdog (Rob) and I decided to join forces today and go for a boat ride on the Potomac to avoid the wind. After the sun was out for a while it was actually pleasant with 1 foot chop and light breezes. Trolled from 7AM to about 2:30PM on the river in the vicinity of #7 and #9. Had several short strikes and got one FAT 38" in the boat that hit a single green parachute 100 feet back of some very nice planer boards Rob got from Evil Dick. Had some ex-large menhaden in the gut when I cleaned it. A deep white umbrella off the back of the boat got smacked too but the fish threw the hook before much a fight. Didn't mark any large pods of bait today. We did see some birds working some actual breakers closer to the VA shore, but they went down before we got within range. All hits were over 50 feet of water and surface temps were around 43. If the WX cooperates we'll try to join forces again next weekend out with the fleet at 72!
