    Where in NOVA are you? I will probably hit the Occoquan on Monday and Tuesday afternoon.

    I hope you got a boat out of that!

    See you on the water.

    Yeah, once the water warms up, we should plan a trip to Severn...
    The VA tidal license is reciprocal with the MD tidal license. However, the non-tidal (freshwater) licenses are not reciprocal. Further, neither MD nor VA are reciprocal with the District of Columbia.

    For MD tidal license holders, in order to use your license in VA, you need to register with the Virginia Marine Fisheries Commission (no cost, but you could be fined if you do not do this). http://mrc.virginia.gov/fip/

    I do not know if VA tidal license holders must do the same in MD.

    I'm in Clifton but I haven't bought my yak yet. I will probably start fishing in May. As for Point Lookout, it is a far drive 2.5+ hours... almost same drive as Ocean City or Delaware.

    Point Lookout is a two hour drive according to Waze. I am very familiar with that section of river from years of sailing through it.

    Let me know if you want to get a look at a Vibe Sea Ghost. It has to be the best bang for the buck in the kayak world. I love mine.

    I wouldn't mind getting a look at your Vibe when you hit the Severn or Point Lookout. I'm looking to upgrade my paddle kayak. And I hear great things about the Vibe.

    It won't be until May or so that I make that kind of drive. Most of my fishing is the Occoquan River since it is about 2 miles from my house

    But you are welcome to see it at any time. It is a great yak for what I use it for since I will be fishing in rivers, shallows, and also some open water. The area I fish in the Occoquan has a lot of rocks and there is some current flowing through there. It would be tough to fish that in a paddle yak.

    Sounds good. Hopefully we can make it happen. I want to fish the Occoquan as well.
