Dr Love the Tidal Bass Manager 410 603 8344




Possibility of having only a three (3) limits fish for the July/August months on the Potomac River. More on this at a later meeting. This is in consideration because of the ongoing bass virus.


The floor question and discussion was brought up by TX Director Billy S about the possibility of purchasing a new scale for the team qualifier. President Andy took it to a member’s present vote and it passed with a cut off of cost of 300 to 400 for a new scale. Mickey has a connection that may help us with a scale and the cost. The old scale can be sold on craigslist or eBay to help compensate some of the money spent.


A discussion and possibly a later vote on the TX cost and paying up front to fish the trail. This will be further reviewed for the next year trail.


The next TBF/FLW Maryland chapter meeting will date will be sent out in a general email to all members. Please be careful on the water and good luck!!!!!
