  • Angler Clean Water Story: A Tale of Three Coves

    October 3, 2014

    I fish in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries several days a week year round. Much of my fishing is done from a kayak, which allows me to get into very shallow water and to sneak up on fish. I see compelling differences in catch success depending on the water quality and clarity of the water bodies where I fish. Here is an example.

  • Angler Clean Water Story: Clean Water Laws Need to Have Teeth

  • Angler Clean Water Story: No Brainer

    June 2, 2014

    Clean water is a no brainer when it comes to anything in life, including the ability to sustain life. Fishing or not, clean water is essential for everyone and everything . . . striped bass, bald eagles, osprey, otters, mayflies, and crayfish, just to name a few.

    It really bugs me that the fish I catch from the Chesapeake are "toxic fish." Chesapeake rockfish and white perch are some of the best tasting fish to be found anywhere.

What a sorry situation . . . This has to change!

  • Angler Clean Water Story: Fishing for Happy Fish

    May 26, 2014

    I like to fish for "happy" fish. In the fall when the water is clear there are some areas in the Bay where you can see the bottom in ten feet of water. You can see fish on structure and they are obviously feeling frisky and "happy."

  • Angler Clean Water Story: Clean Water Is Simply a Must

    May 15, 2014

    I began fishing as a young boy in the ponds and creeks around my home for mainly bluegill or more often whatever would bite. Those early years instilled a love of the sport that I still have today.
