  1. Greetings from BadAssBass to MetroMan:

    Haven't posted in a while. My wife has been recovering from surgery and I've been sticking close to home. I believe you have fished the Potomac around the Woodrow Wilson bridge and was wondering if you would like to target some trohpy cats with me. I haven't fished around the bridge and would prefer to go out with someone. I'm also open to Mattawoman or Ft. Washington Marina. You helped me when I was deciding on my second boat, a Hobie PA a couple of years ago.

    I'm at 703.587.1929.
  2. Hey I'm just seeing ur message. You got it right in your post. Make a right at the water park, entrance is on the left!

    Hey where are you launching from at Chesapeake beach, im going to be getting down there around 330-400pm tomorrow. All ive ever done there is go out on charters. I need like a street or something to narrow it down.

    ACK has the soft side bait wells- pricey, but unless I have a long paddle the towable bait bucket works fine
  5. I haven't used a live well, but I know people have used
    5gal buckets with success. That would be the simplest way...bucket with a pump/aerator. I'm not familiar with the soft sided live wells. I use a soft sided cooler though. You got any sample pics? A soft side unit would make for easy transport and storage

    Hey Metro- I want to rig a live well- what is your thoughts on rigging a plastic 5 gal bucket with a bilge pump or the collapsable soft sided ones pre rigged? Have you used a live well in the SS Metro?
