I got off work late & started to go do some catch & release shad fishing but the
traffic was bad so I changed direction & found more tough traffic. I pulled over to old Laurel to fish the Patuxent near Main St. My first spot was occupied w/ kids throwing rocks in the water. One kid asked my to untangle his line, which I did, then he threw more rocks. Meanwhile I walked along the bank & then hooked into a 19.5" rainbow trout using a Mepps spinner. I hooked one more ' normal-sized' stocker of 11" then could find no more love. That big one made it to shore then snapped my ultralight rod tip once on land. I was truly stoked.
