There will be a 2013 end-of-year random drawing from angler's participating in any of the Volunteer Angler Surveys.

The information helps our biologists better understand the various species and water systems they utilize.

Maryland Fishing Challenge Logo showing striped bassA new component of the Maryland Fishing Challenge includes invasive species reports submitted to the Angler's Log. Beginning during the 2013/2014 tournament, Angler's Log entries which include Blue Catfish, Northern Snakehead or Flathead Catfish, at any length in size, will be eligible for up to two prizes via a random drawing at the annual Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale. Fish must be kept and a photo showing the kept fish is mandatory. Multiple entries are allowed, but each fish can only be entered once. Remember, all invasive species must be dead to be entered and there is no catch and release category. Visit the Maryland fishing Challenge web site to read the complete set of rules.

St. Leonards Creek Mix

Type: Tidal
Region: Southern
Location: St. Leonards Creek

I went out Tuesday looking for perch and rockfish but ended up with some nice channel cats and some perchs. I caught 6 catfish the biggest 23 inches and a lot of perch even though most were small but some were 9-10 inches and 1 baby rockfish that was 10 inches. Everything was on a gold rattletrap. All in all it was a good day.

Delayed Harvest at Casselman River

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Casselman River

The Delayed Harvest at the Casselman River was excellent. Lots of rainbows up to 14 inches. Not crowded and a perfect way to spend the day. Wet wading kept things cool. The bridge is closed but you can easily go around the back roads to fish downstream. The fresh trout fish fry was perfect!

National Go Fishing Day

Type: Tidal
Region: Southern
Location: Flag Harbor Marina

On The National Wildlife Federation site I saw that June 18, 2014 was "National Go Fishing Day." With a directive like that how could I not go? My youngest son and I paddled out from the Flag Harbor Marina where we keep our kayaks and spent an hour or so reeling in croakers. Some were just under the limit while others were just over. Either way we released them all to catch again. Caught around 20 or so.

Small Lake, Post Spawn Bassing

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Small Lake

Post spawn largemouths continue to feed well in small lakes throughout the Mason Dixon area. Although most fish have spawned, we did encounter a few fish last week that did not appear to have dropped eggs as of yet. Also, lots of bass fry are cruising the shallows and small bass and bluegills are feasting on them.

Anglers take note: there are many outstanding 'under the radar' public venues throughout the state that have quality fishing for 3 to 5 pound and up bass, with little or no pressure. No matter how small or urbanized, don't overlook the possibilities for excellent bassing right under your nose.

The two largest bass were caught on 2 pound test while scouting for bluegills on 6-13 and 6-16 in public venues.
