A man made quite the catch on the Potomac River last week.
Look at this large striped bass caught near Fletcher’s Boat House on the Potomac River in DC. This is an indicator that our rivers are getting healthier! #FishDC #SustainableDC Angler: Connor Donovan Photographer: Mike Bailey pic.twitter.com/r7iXrl5feZ

According to ABC 7, Connor Donovan snagged an estimated 35-pound, 40-inch striped bass near Fletcher’s Cove in Northwest D.C.
Don’t count on feasting on this beast, though. Donovan reportedly released the giant fish back into the river.
