    Default Patapsco Report 4/10/17

    Got out around 7:30 Sunday morning. Water was glass, but that was the only good news to report. Trolled around until 10 or so before calling it quits, without getting so much as a single hit.

    I saw another kayaker out there for a bit - wondering if it was anybody here? He was further out from shore than I was, going from the power plant toward Rock Creek/fort smallwood.

    I spent more time talking to the DNR guys than I did reeling in fish. Matter of fact, I may start another thread to warn folks to expect to get stopped in this area this time of year.

    Anyway, there was no wind and no fish, which at least beats wind and no fish. We had our first child three weeks ago, so it was nice to finally get out for a beautiful morning on the water anyway.

    It twas i. I didnt do much better. Only one dink. The plastic bag bite was on fire though!

    My past two trips, in two separate locations, I've been stopped by DNR. They ask if I've caught anything, ask for my license and I'm on my way. I'm glad they have a greater presence. I can probably count on one hand the amount of times I've been stopped in the past few years before now.

    Might have been me I was out in a Propel 10. Launching out of Fort Smallwood from about 8am till 12 bite seemed to pick up as some wind did and managed 4 fish up to 18" no big ones. Had one good knockdown but never got a good hookset. Saw a couple other Yaks (Blue Hobie, and another pedal yak) but didn't get a chance to talk to them.

    Did not get stopped by the DNR on the water, but did have an officer pull up in his truck at the launch as I was unloading. He wanted to make sure I had all my safety equipment and to be careful since someone capsized their yak last weekend. I listed all my equipment quick and offered to let him check it but he declined and told me to be careful and went on his way.

    No, don't get me wrong - I definitely appreciate that they're out there. I'd just hate for somebody to forget to grab their license, or even their whistle (I've gotten a written warning for not having that, was with a guy who got cited for it), and instead of turning the car around to get it, just assuming they'll be fine.

    I got stopped at least 3 times last spring, and I'm 1/1 now this year. Always right near the Brandon Shores plant.

    So that yak would have been on the Bay side of Fort Smallwood Park? Not me, in that case. I was between Rock Creek & Stoney Creek, closer to Stoney/Brandon Shores.

    But yes...muddy.
