Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We are anchored in Town Cove, off the Tred Avon and Choptank River.

Was a beautiful sail today. Good wind till later in the afternoon. We sailed down to the Choptank and part of the way to the Tred Avon and motored the last 3 miles to Town Creek off of Oxford. Dinghy is inflated yet so we didn't go ashore

Id picked up some nice fresh red grouper from Wegmans for dinner on the grill with a fresh mandarin/ black bean/ ginger/ and green onion salsa , pencil thin asparagus/ roasted garlic and homemade red bliss dill potato salad. Grilled pineapple for desert. Nice Cakebread Pinot Noir to sip

We're were treated to a beautiful sunset. No boats, no bugs, just peace and quiet all day. Great time of the year. Good day with just my wife and I.

Looks like we may have to pull out a get fresh bottom paint as our Ultima 60 is on its fourth year and the fiver said most is gone and we are down to the barrier coat in places. Will try and wait until End of May after all the boats are in. We found a great yard who does it on Whitehall Creek much cheaper than almost everyone else except Old Rhode Bay where 4arch kept his boat.

He was suprised when just as he was about to grill it the DNR pulled up alongside him. Evidently they were watching and saw him catch the fish. Even though it was legal size he couldn't prove it. They fined him and confiscated it. Sounds draconian I know but it truly happened. Talk about the long arm of the law and intruding. They don't have enough to do
Wow, that's unbelievable. I guess you need to keep handy a bunch of polaroids of legal-size fish just in case.
I wish they were that diligent about enforcing no wake zones and just reckless boating in general.

I'm so bad at fishing that I couldn't catch a cold.

Yeah I know. When he told me his story I thought it was an April fools joke. They should be out there looking for netters and people who really abuse the rules.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Launch day today...wish me luck! If I splash early enough and everything goes off without a hitch, I'll probably deliver the boat to the new marina this afternoon.

I heard that story before (possibly from you here on SN).

In case I should ever catch a rockfish, do you know what counts as 'landing the fish?' Would it be enough to bring it in the dinghy to the beach, step on the sand and go back to the boat to fillet and grill it?

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Shawn, that law was put in effect to combat illegal catches by the commercial hook and line industry where they caught undersized fish and only landed the fillets, thus making it impossible to determine if the fish were of legal size. However, there was a clause in that law that stipulated that you could fillet the catch onboard if the carcass was retained for a reasonable period of time, which I believe was 24 hours.

In this instance, if the angler would have retained the carcass, he could have proven the length of the fish was legal, and avoided a day in court.

All the best,

Gary

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

A second beautiful day in a row. Bright deep blue sky, cool temps on the water. Wind came up after 11. We motored from Oxford down the Choptank and after we rounded Black Walnut Point were able to unfurl the genny and make 6 knots back up to Whitehall Bay. Many more boats out today.
Looks like some people have gotten back in the water this weekend.

Still learning our way in Whitehall Creek and was able to sail right up to the marina.

Gotta get the dinghy hooked up in the davits, but we're ahead of the game already this year. Would have been nice to head in to Oxford last night for gelato/ ice cream

All in all a great weekend. Will make work almost bearable this week

My goodness. Where in here did Shawn say he DID fish or was advising others to fish?
