  1. Prefer artificial. Nothing like making all the right moves to “match the hatch” and fool the fish into eating what you’re offering.
  2. I really hope he stays straight, while at the same time crushes DB’s as he stretches the field, with an aging QB Throws him the ball!!
  3. The fleet where I work is pretty diverse, but the Ford Transits are the better rigs. Less problems overall with them and the body has a better design than Sprinters.
  4. The smell of the salt air, the sound of the waves, and the sun breaking on the horizon. Even better if there’s no one else around.
  5. The original doomsday forecast when snakeheads were found in the Potomac and its tributaries in 2003-2005 were shown to have been largely overblown, and they are now considered part of the ecosystem. They exist with the largemouth, stripers, and other gamefish and are caught on nearly every outing I’ve experienced, and like BelAirSteve noted about MD, Virginia now also allows the release of them as well.
  6. I would expect a busy happy hour filled with Capitol Hill types early on, with the 8pm hour as prime eating time. Not too sure on this one but the W Hotel is right next door and they boast a rooftop lounge (POV) filled with great views. Was keeping it close to the tourist stuff.
  7. Hi there, I’m new here at SOL, but a DC local. Suggest dinner at Occidental Grill at 15th and Pennsylvania, one block from WH. Easy walk to national mall, which will allow walking access to Washington Monument (likely outside only), WWII Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam Wall in an easily followed natural circuit of about 2 miles +/-. Evenings are very picturesque, and it shouldn’t be too hot, so I would expect it to be enjoyable. Also this tourist area is safe. Since I’m local I don’t really have any good hotel intel, but the general area has lots of them, so you shouldn’t need a taxi or Uber until you need to get to the airport.
  8. Sorry to hear this. Loved his shows. RIP
  9. Great pics! Sounds like a great trip. Congratulations!
  10. Greetings, I’m new to the forum and recently got back into striper/surf fishing. I’m looking for some recommendations for a quality pair of pliers. Although cost will be a factor, I don’t want to have to replace economy brand versions year after year when I could have just spent the money up front for a better product. Thanks
