Re: Is Anyone Else Scared?

The Chesapeake Bay is completely obscured during the summer. The bottom is mud, clay or silt that has the consistency of heavy axle grease, and is thoroughly unpleasant to put your feet in.

It's not a lot of fun, but there's not much in the water to harm you. I usually experience a few moment's annoyance at the lack of visibility, but as I work, the feeling fades and I just get the job done.

Uh...I'm from Florida, so I'm familiar with Tarpon as a game fish but I'm not aware of any history of them attacking people. I wouldn't worry about that.
