Losing a $300 Rod?!?! Bass Fishing at the Occoquan Reservoir in VA

Fishing the Occoquan Reservoir in Virginia. The fishing was tricky, with the Occoquan experiencing 14 straight days of rain! The reservoir was the color of chocolate milk, and the cold rain dropped the water temp several degrees. We struggled at the beginning, going fish-less for the first few hours of the day, but by the end of the day we figured out how to get a few solid chunks to eat out our baits!
