President’s Message

Saturdays Forecast….Rain. Sundays Forecast….rain…winds 15-20 knots. Man, Can’t remember such terrible weather right in the middle of quality live lining and crabbing times. With the fishing in the middle bay on fire with the spot, croaker, rockfish, specks and even some 6-8lb sea trout being caught it’s been almost impossible to get out between the thunderstorms, rain or wind to have a decent day on the water. When you can, fishing is good, although, crabbing has been slow for many. The first taste of succulent crab meat just seems to get more rewarding every year.

Our chapter has a full scale of upcoming events that I would encourage each of you to participate in. For those of you who crab, Dan from Bay Country Crabbing Supplies will be giving a top notch trot lining outdoor demonstration at our July meeting. For the novices, this will be educational and he will have all the gear and/or supplies to put a bushel on the table. Click his link on our website to view his products. Upcoming will be chapter live lining trip, a crabbing trip on the Wye River, the Main’s Beach –N-Boat tournament in August and of course, our dynamite crab feast in September.

Finally, the DC MSSA will have it’s first annual Rockfish shootout on July 13th with a shotgun start out of Thomas Point. The entry fee is only $50.00 per person. Personally knowing the fellas at the DC Chapter they will put on one helluva fun tournament.

Fish hard!
