Potomac Blues and Flats
Location: Potomac River at Great Falls
Here are some blue catfish and flathead catfish I caught in the last 2 months out on the Potomac River at Great Falls. The spot I go to used to be all channel catfish but now its primarily blues and flatheads. Iím hoping to pull in a 30-40lb flathead out of this spot one day. Biggest flathead so far was maybe 10-15lbs. My biggest blue was maybe 30-40lbs. I measure length and girth but have not looked at a chart yet.

Rare Catch, Tilapia!
Location: C&O Canal
Back in June I snagged this Tilapia out of the C&O canal at Pennyfield right by the lock. It took me 2 attempts (hooked pulled out on shore the first attempt) to land it. I snagged it only because I knew what it was and clearly Tilapia aren't native to MD (or the U.S.?). I like the taste of tilapia so I took it home and ate it. A friend has recently informed me he has seen one in a lake by my house. Even sent me a picture! Hopefully I can catch that one too and send a picture.
