Beatin' the Bank with Bernie Schultz - 2016 Potomac River BASS Elite

When B.A.S.S. included the Potomac River on this year’s schedule, I was licking my chops. A summer event on such good tidal water sounded almost too good to be true. 

Recalling my Top-10 finish on the Chesapeake Bay a year earlier, I felt there was no way I could fail. Boy was I ever wrong!

Card's Catch - Potomac River Preview: Swim Jig Time

The Elite Series event on the Potomac River is starting soon and I am excited to get on the water. I have been there three times and each time the swim jig played a big role. The river really sets up perfectly for a swim jig. It is a great way to quickly cover water to find concentrations of fish and then once you find them, it's easy to slow down and pitch Senkos.
