    First trip out this year, launched at BT where I met Omid(great to meet you btw).FF wiring rotted over the winter so I was trolling blind. No bites in 3 hours, but like Omid said the radio chatter was entertaining. Talked to a lot of boat guys that reported skunks. Hopefully weather cooperates next weekend.

    Silasvirus and I fished for about 4 hours in the upper Severn. I only got 2 small fish. We also went out on Friday to BT and met a couple other yakkers there, also caught a couple smalls that day. Nobody caught anything of size though one of the kayakers, mike I think, got a couple over 20". A lot of the charter boats scouting spots reported skunks all around so we didn't feel too bad

    I believe I was that kayaker, Bill, not Mike. I logged over 18 miles and 10 hours just enjoying the day. I drive a long way for the privilege, so I have to make the most of it. The good news was that the Kodiak Jig that I wrote was "for the birds" for enticing ospreys the day before did finally manage a fish, just one, but the biggest of the day at around 26 or 27 inches. I enjoyed the paddle and playing with the $10 boating USA app that I just added to my phone. Anyone without a mapping fish finder should have that on the water. It was wonderful to be able to so easily follow contours and drop offs. I did find a few fish here and a few there, but it was definitely tough. I'm still really new to this sort of fishing and just enjoying the challenge, learning a little bit at a time, trying new things, and meeting new people.

    Bill, sorry! I'm terrible with names. I'm pat. I'm glad you got some good size fish. Like I said, I only got smalls. You are welcome to fish with john and I anytime. That's a crazy amount of time on the water, I think I logged only 12 miles for the 5.5 hours I was out. I also drive a fair ways, usually an hour sometimes 1.5, so like you, I gotta do a lot of planning and make the most of it when I get there. John (silasvirus) and I have been chasing those elusive 30"+ fish but have yet to get any. Someday soon hopefully. I was lucky to get a big catfish this year, but a rockfish bigger than 24" has eluded me.

    Great to meet you as well, Chad. Sorry about the FF, don't forget about Charts it's a great backup app.
