  • Photo of the Week: Palace Bar Reef

    November 7, 2017

    This was taken at Palace Bar Reef, a sanctuary oyster reef where CBF planted 300 reef balls between 2010 and 2012. It’s now become a favorite fishing spot on Virginia’s Piankatank River. The ripples you see in the photo are bait fish, which attract bigger fish.

    I am a volunteer for the Annapolis Maritime Museum and welcome visitors from all over the world who come to see the Chesapeake Bay, hear stories of watermen, and visit the Naval Academy. I am a Navy Sailor and wherever I travel, the Chesapeake Bay will always be home.
