Ronald Caldeira of Middletown, Delaware, caught a five-bass limit weighing 21 pounds, 6 ounces, Saturday to win the 2018 T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Northeast Division opener on the Potomac River presented by Navionics. For his efforts, Caldeira took home $6,796.

“I caught them all on main-river points in the mouths of Mattowoman and Quantico creeks,” says Caldeira, who notched his first win in FLW competition. “I had five points that I cycled through, and each had pebble rock and sand. I think the big females were transitioning to the points right outside those main creeks, getting ready to spawn. I only had seven bites, but they were the right ones. Some of the fish were tanks – they’d been eating for a while.”

Caldeira used a Rapala DT-6 crankbait in 3 to 5 feet of water and for shallower situations a Chartreuse and Black Back-colored Strike King KVD 1.5 HC Shallow Squarebill.

“I’d start far off the point with the Rapala and then switch to the Strike King as I got shallow so I wouldn’t get hung up as much,” says Caldeira. “As soon the lure would bounce off the rock and free itself, that’s when they loaded up on it."
