    You can camp at the airfield I'm pretty sure. Those spots we usually stay are designated camping spots, but a hot shower might be a problem.

    Good luck to all who expand their fishing to include species they specifically target...can’t think of any I haven’t already caught or that I want to, so I’ll stay in my comfort zone and fish for seasonal species of stripers, redfish white perch and speckled trout...Yak 67 has talked about us taking a “road trip” or two so that may give us an opportunity to fish for species common to the areas we visit...one of my favorite Florida fish is snook...love their fights...strong fish, great on the table too...Spanish Mack’s are pretty good on the grill...not so much in the pan...

    I caught these in Sept. 2015 over near Triton Beach. The Mackerel was jigged up with a Zman paddletail. As I recall a boater saw me catching fish and stopped. The lady jigged up a Mackerel also. It was mentioned in the DNR fishing report for the week of Sept. 19 2015. http://dnrweb.dnr.state.md.us/fisher...asp?d=09232015

    That's a big mac right there! The girl in the fishing report pic seems very leery to hold that fish. It's good to know that mackerel are at least accessible within a 1-2 hour drive from my house in the summer. I assume triton beach is the same thing as beverly triton? Thank you for the post.
