There's big fish in the Potomac

A buddy of mine who fishes with me sometimes used to work for MD Department of Environmental Quality (they do actually have one, believe it or not). Anyway, DEQ used to electroshock sometimes too. He has also done some fish counts while diving in the Potomac. He says that there are some humongous fish in there - including some catfish as big as him (he's a 6' broad-shouldered Swede). The "big" smallmouth that we take aren't the big ones in the pools. The big ones just don't get caught. He said that when electroshocking they used to regularly turn up fish to beat state records taken by sporting means.
