  1. Happy new years everyone we are in the midst of our winter lull. Weather has been mild so far, here's to it staying as such so the spring run will be good. Anyway not a lot to report, hearing of some short striper still around but not in any numbers. If you decide to give it a shot we would love to hear about it. For me it's rod repair season and gear clean up. On the plus side the days are slowly getting longer and only half dozen weeks or so till it's time to get out again.
  2. If anyone knows what some of the size and creel limits for 2013 are for md can you let me know.I tried looking for them, but I could not find anything. Thanks

  6. Folks in the upper Chessie are seeing some cloudy waters from releases at Conowingo. Yellow Perch are still readily available. The Blues are on the way out, the larger ones have fled. Middle Chessie is seeing water temps drop with schools of undersized Stripers. Lower Chessie has a mixed bag of small Blues and small Stripers. Spot is still being caught throughout the region. Surf Zone: On the frontal sands, expect Dogfish, some Skate/Rays and hordes of smaller Blues. Still waiting for the Stripes to show. The inlet and Rt 50 bridge are producing Tog, big Trout, big Blues and some decent Stripes. We're waiting for the big blast, should be here within this week. Let us know how you fared...
  7. Hi my name is David I took my Girlfriend fishing for the first time yesterday. We went to Seneca Creek State Park. It was fun, we dont have boat so were stuck on land. We saw alot of baby fish but that was it. I wanted to know if anyone knew of any places i could take her where we could fish from shore and have a good chance of catching something. Also i looked at getting and inflatable boat and an electric motor to put on the back of it so we could get out on these lakes so we could open up our range of fishing area. Are there any boats that could fit in a super low budget. Thank you for you time and help and i look forward to reading your comments. David
  8. I have also heard that soaking the wound with vinegar works for helping to control the pain. Not sure how true it is, might be a ole'wives tale, but it certainly can't hurt to try it.
  9. Monday, July 21, 2008 Yellow Perch Management Meeting (PASADENA, MD) -The Maryland Saltwater Sportfishermen’s Association (MSSA) would like to inform you of an important Yellow Perch management meeting scheduled for Monday, July 28th from 7-9pm at the Tawes Building in Annapolis, MD. The purpose of this meeting is to develop specific goals and objectives for the recreational Yellow Perch fishery. The MSSA has been the main source for protecting recreational fishing rights in the state of Maryland for many years and will continue to do so on Monday, July 28th. The MSSA would like to invite all of its members and Chapter Presidents to attend this meeting and support the recreational fishermen of Maryland. The failures of previous Yellow Perch management are obvious and need to be resolved. The MSSA will work closely with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and other stake holders to determine the best Yellow Perch FMP. Marylanders have stood by and watched their fishery given to a group that has no concept of sustainability. This is our time to change that and let the lawmakers know that the recreational fishermen are more involved and determined in restoring and sustaining Yellow Perch populations. Recreational fishing in the state of Maryland has and always will be a staple of economic value and prosperity. Please join the MSSA on Monday, July 28th to change the out-dated and failing management plan for Yellow Perch. Please contact Rick Morin at the DNR if you wish to attend, or by phone at (410)-260-8272. Dave Smith Associate Executive Director Maryland Saltwater Sportfishermen's Association, Inc. 8461C Ft. Smallwood Rd. Pasadena, MD 21122 410-255-5535
  10. probally nothing but....... Rehoboth Beach Clears After Reports Of Shark Sighting Rehoboth Beach Patrol cleared the waters on Sunday after reports of sharks in the water. Officials say it could have been a sand shark, a skate or a ray. Captain Kent Buckson says they get sightings at least a couple of times a summer. "We're going to be proactive and protect the public and pull them out for an extended period of time until we feel confident enough that whatever it was, sharks, skates or rays have moved on," Buckson said. Buckson says if you see any kind of marine life in the water to remain calm and tell a lifeguard.

  13. The water is heating up nicely, should be "dippable" soon. The larger toothy critters will be at the shore anytime, time to throw a line in. As usual, please post the details of your excursion, fish or no fish.

She has been working on them for the past 6 months trying to get all the data she could to make this state site as informative as possible. She has done countless hours of research, web design and dealing with my pigheadedness. She is new to the forum and her username is Happy2fish.
