    A diamondback too!

    Congratulations.

    I wasn't trolling but I snagged a painted turtle in the foot once while casting. It wasn't pleased, of course, and hissed at me while I removed the hook.

    Tarponguy,

    Welcome to the area. You're fortunate to live close to Goodhands. It's my favorite kayaking stop on Eastern Shore tidal waters.

    Stu,

    That's hysterical.

    I was going to suggest you find another part-time job but the tennis dress story convinced me that your job's rewards exceed its irritations.

    Holy cow...I have to say that sounds complex.

    I'm sincerely glad it works for you and evidently it works for many other kayak anglers.

    My favorite fly rod catch this year was this pickerel from Unicorn Lake caught on May 1st:

    Stu,

    You know how to cast. Let the rod do the work and you'll keep the wet side down and not make a ripple in the water.

    I still wouldn't do it. Plenty of other places to fish. But then again, I've been married to the same woman for 38 years. :)

    I would not want to lock myself into one body of water, especially with so many tidal options relatively close by.

    I'd go for Piney and an occasional road trip to other waters.

    I certainly could have covered your 20 miles today in my kayak -- with a rope tied to the stern of the Scout. :)

    Congrats to you and Bruce and John on another great "Scouting" trip.

    Aside from the legal necessities of a license and PFD, the answer is, it depends.
