1. Quantico Creek/Bay on the other hand was shallow, weedy, hydrilla and spatterdock, and warm with high 70 degree stained waters the norm. We fished hard for bass ...more and snakehead in and around the spatterdock, mostly on high, outgoing tides in the morning, using top water Pop'R plugs and shallow running crank baits. We did OK with the bass, catching about a dozen or so over the two weekends...but nothing more than 3 pounds. We also caught a few snakeheads in the 3 to 6 pound range, so it's apparent that the Quantico Marine Corps Base "snakehead" tournament from a few weeks ago didn't get all of the snakeheads in the area. Of course we got very, very wet this morning with the long, slow rains, but it was still a good day to be out and about with friend and fish!
