Maybe I could join you guys for lunch when I return in the spring to get acquainted?? Do you have a website?? Please keep me in the loop. Thanks !
    The Old Guys Who Like to Fish (OGWLF) is an informal group of guys who mostly live in Anne Arundel County. Most of us are retired - a few still have day jobs but often have flexible work hours so they can join us for a morning. We primarily fish on week days (we can pick and choose our weather conditions and have less other boat traffic or other anglers to contend with). We do not have a website and are unlikely to create one. Only a few of our members are active on Facebook, so we do not use that mechanism for communicating. We typically communicate by email to our small distribution list or to a subset of that list. Often just two or three of us plan an outing.

    Three of us are heading soon to Crystal River/Mosquito Lagoon area of Florida for three days with a NE Florida kayak guide. I will remain in Florida and drive across to Tampa to fish a few more days with my regular kayak guide.

    Once the ice leaves our local waters and the temperature moderate somewhat, we will resume fishing locally. Typically during the winter months we fished often in the Severn looking for pickerel. The Severn pickerel population crashed a year and a half ago, so we will need to look for other winter fishing locations.

    To briefly add to what John said, most certainly we can meet for lunch. PM me on this forum when you return and we'll make arrangements for lunch. Our Eastern Shore forays typically are launched from Kent Island into tidal waters or further east to a number of ponds in MD and DE for freshwater species.

    Now I have a question for you. Has the recent cold snap which I know has also visited FL, adversely impacted the fishing there? I certainly hope not. I'm looking forward to a little warmth and more than a little pullage next week on FL's Space Coast.

    Thank you for your query. I look forward to meeting you.

    Good luck boys headin' down south...

    I guess I don't qualify for the OGWLF Club...
    I am 61 years (too young for this club...)

    and in my little 10foot boat... last year my best paddle was 18 miles...
    Yup... I guess I got lazy last year..

    Gonna do better this year.. break my 24mile paddle record...
    In my little bathtub kayak...

    So I guess I don't qualify to be in the "OGWLF Club".

    And just keep my adventures to the osprey's, eagles, and other fine people I met on the bay.

    I am 59 and live too far north to be a regular with the OGWLF Club. Would like to meet up sometime this year though. Sounds like a great bunch of guys.

    The only qualification for membership in the OGWLF is if your reputation can stand the company.

    I do believe we have few youngsters under 61 and while I probably haven't reached 18 miles on a single outing, double digit mileage trips for us are not uncommon.

    We may be old, but we can pedal and paddle pretty well.
