Summer on the Chesapeake Bay: Bow-fishing on the Potomac and Patuxent Rivers

Bow-fishing on the Potomac, So, I cast the baited but non-weighted rig behind the boat, flipped out a lot of slack line, and put the rod in the stern rod holder with an open bail while I baited up a bottom rig on another rod. By the time I got that rig to the bottom, the drift rig rod was jumping. I pulled in two big croakers on that rig and proceeded to catch my limit of croaker on the drift rig. I think the wire spreader has enough weight to drift to the bottom and move across with the current. Regardless of why it works, this is a good trick that you are welcome to forget but a smart fisherman won’t.

Regardless of whether you are catching one or two fish at a time, June is the time to catch a nice mess of fish with minimum effort. If you can’t catch them now, you might as well take up playing golf.

Catching Fish a Clear Cut Choice for Commissioner Larry Jarboe

Thank you to all Friends of Larry Jarboe for State Senate. Carlene and I are grateful for your support, not only in this campaign, but since I first won office as St. Mary’s County Commissioner in 1994,

No, I won’t be traveling to Annapolis. But, we are looking forward to moving to the Florida Keys in the winter and living in St. Mary’s County during the milder months. Also, we will be traveling on the ocean cruise circuit. I do maritime and destination lectures and Carlene organizes the power point presentations. If you would like spend six days at sea, there is an especially reasonable priced run from Baltimore to Bermuda that you might want to join us on in September.

Now that winter is over, are you ready for spring fishing?
