Supposed to be about 70 this weekend and I'm looking forward to getting some crabs to steam.  They won't be Maryland ones obviously but they'll still be good!

How 'bout you guys?

Things are now "starting to happen quickly"! Lets see today I got my little truck emissions test done and soon I will have to remove the teak on my Whaler and start getting her pretty for this years boating. Its the 14th of March and April and daylight savings will be here soon. Pros will be dropping pots in deep bay waters about Apr 1st! Spring Perch are just about here and the Rockfish are coming in too to spawn for now. As much as the winter can be rough its a reason I love the Bay area with the seasons we have.

Cabin Fever - Crabbin Fever or just gettin out for the day!
[/size][/b]

As I posted eleswhere today:

It was pretty warm today. I went to NJ Graveling Point to try some Striper fishing. Walked around and talked to the good fishermen who were out with lines wet, (about a dozen or so there around 10am), no one had seen anyactivity or anything going on. Too cold. My partner and I just left our poles in the car. Maybe we'll try next week if the water warms up any.

Nice day for walking aroung though ...... good to be back out next to the water.

 Grasshopper; Have you ever tried live small spot as bait for rockfish ? They do real well here and we can catch a few spot around docks this time of year.

  It's a salt water fish . It's shape and size is like a bluegill. It has a golden color with a black spot behind it's gills.I don't know it's scientific name but i will try to find it . If i knew how i would show you a picture. Have you ever checked out www.chesapeak-angler.com? They have a free magazine and it's always full of rockfish tips Smiley

Went Striper fishing today - Saturday the 22nd.  11am to 3pm ---- nothing .... nada.... just us - water - beer - and blood worms. (Did ya know the [dang] things have teeth?? WORMS that 'hack up" their insides and they have teeth on the end of them). Go figure it!!!

36 + fisher men and women lining a half mile of 'Gravling Point' bay shore and nothing going on.

Then ..... at around 3:30 - 200 feet up the bank from my group, a fella pulls in a 28" er.

10 minutes later, 190' away from us ..... another 'linesider' gets beached.

30 minutes pass and 120' feet from us - a 24" beautiful Bass. They're workin there way towards us.

This goes on for another hour and ........ I get a phone call from the mrs. - stating that if we didn't get home "NOW", we wouldn't be fed. (Actually, it was worse than that but I can't get into the details here).

Ya know where this is going ..... as we were packed up and starting to walk down the beach, they were pullin them in where we had been for 5 hours.

Sheeeses ............. well ...... theres always next time!!!
