Roselle Takes Win on Potomac
Mike Roselle of LaPlata, Maryland takes the Ram AFT D11 win on the Potomac River on July 10th with a five fish limit weighing in at 15.02 pounds. He also took Big Bass with a 3.73 kicker. "I fished main river grass beds protected from the wind with two different colors of the BHF custom lures swim jigs. Also caught a fish late on a spro frog in matted grass that helped cull up. The lower end of the tide seem to produce the better quality bites. The new st criox avid x series rods was a big key to catching the fish because they are sensitive enough where you can feel if there is any grass on the bait fowling it up." Roselle said.
