    Thanks for sharing that, Neil. I still miss seeing new articles from JC. I can't believe it's been 4 years since he passed.

    I don't want to sound like I am nit-picking, but I thought that this site has an article detaling similar knowledge. It may be under the FF101 group of articles Castwell wrote for...

    In VA, its always been catch and kill, you can be fined for releasing the fish. Athough MD is now offering a reward, the fish has not quite taken over the Potomac, yet.
