Took the W500 for a trip to open water in the Potomac River. The cooler weather has driven the Blue Catfish from the sheltered creeks to the edge of the river channel. I learned a few tricks about catfishing in the Wavewalk that will up the catch of cats on future expeditions.
Zero fuel was expended. I paddled.
And, I only used 5 dollars in bait, a third of which I gave to a father and his two sons who needed a little help.
Blue Catfish are probably the most predatory invasive fish in the Chesapeake Watershed. Maryland DNR (Dept. of Nat. Resources) says to catch and keep all you can. I take that as a mission statement.
