This was a very fun day of bank fishing. We got a 11, 14, 19, 25 and a few 8s and 5s. The blues and channel were out in thick due to the recent rains. I always like to get quality rather than quantity so I was excited to get a little bit of both. We were using carp and shad as bait but the bait that was most successful was shad. I had to move spots once but when I did the big catfish started coming! Never be scared to move spots especially when bank fishing. I know it is a hassle at times but, you can find yourself on a hot catfish bite! This is a section of the Potomac river that is very rocky and deep, but the big fish were pretty shallow. Most of the catfish were caught in 15-20ft of water. The wind picked up throughout the end of the day, but it did not pose too much of a hassle. Bigger baits was the ticket for the bigger fish, and man were the takedowns crazy. Always a good day when your catching channel and blue catfish from shore!

Hello all, My name is mark Pickett and I love fishing and exploring the outdoors. I have been fishing “seriously”for about 11 years now. I film fishing videos a few times a week and I am excited to share that all with the people online. Fishing is my passion, so I am always trying to bring the best content as possible. As time goes on, I look to improve the quality of my videos. Right now I do a lot of fishing for big catfish, but I enjoy catching multispecies as well. Enjoy the videos!
