For some of our fishermen, spring apparently has sprung

Judging by the clothing, La Plata's Dale Knupp can't be cold. It is spring, after all -- isn't it? Dale sent me this photo without any identifying background information, plus he didn't answer when I sent him questions about the catch location. I'm sure it was the Mattawoman Creek, one of the top tributaries to the tidal Potomac River, south of Washington, D.C., where the bass came from and here's why:

Bass fishing guide Andy Andrzejewski  shows off a 4.5-pound largemouth caught in the Mattawoman Creek. Andy used a Mann's Sting Ray grub and since Andy's big 22-foot Triton is currently in the shop, our bet is that he fished with his long-time friend, Dale.

Mystery solved.

Talk about a mystery, long-time reader Tim Lowe, who lives in Hagerstown, Md., caught this monster rainbow trout and when he was asked where and how, all he'd say was, "In a friend's pond in West Virginia." Tim had been sworn to secrecy about providing additional details. He did say the 18.6-pound  trout hit a spinnerbait, normally more associated with largemouth bass.
