Wind Blown Potomac

Potomac River - Pre Spawn / Spawn Conditions
The wind was really cranking by this afternoon and it became a challenge to not only find decent water but stay in one place using the trolling motor.  During the last part of the tide some cloud cover moved in and the bite improved.  Water temperature has dropped a little in the past week but the fish haven't gone far / just pulled out a little.  This 6 pound 3 oz pig looked like she was ready to pop any second (note tail / gut).  With cooler temperatures in the forecast this week you will need to slow down your presentation throughout the day and take full advantage during periods of feeding activity.
