Awesome Time in OC

Type: Ocean
Region: Eastern
Location: Ocean City

I had an awesome time fishing in Ocean City. Mr. Frank Watkins took me fishing on his boat. I caught lots of fish. I caught my first black sea bass and kingfish that day. We caught a variety of fish that day which was incredible and we even saw sharks swim by the boat. We caught croaker, kingfish, black sea bass, perch, and triggerfish. The highlight of the trip was when our friend, Bob hooked into a giant ray. It jumped and flew out of the water many times putting on a show for us. Mr. Watkins was very nice and he explained to us how to use a fish finder and told us stories about the area. He even let me use his favorite fishing pole. Thank you so much Mr. Watkins for taking me, my dad, and our friend Bob out, it is a day that I will never forget.

More Perch at Wicomico Pier

Type: Tidal
Region: Southern
Location: Wicomico Pier

I went fishing today with my dad at Wicomico Pier. I caught some more perch today and I saw the water snake again. This time I was able to take a picture of it. I was wondering what type of snake it is? Can you please tell me?

DNR Response: The picture is not great, but from what we can tell, it resembles a northern watersnake (Nerodia sipedon).

Trout Fishing Report from Southern Maryland

Type: Freshwater
Region: Southern
Location: Hughesville Pond

On Sunday, I went fishing with my dad at Hughesville Pond. I had a great time and I caught 3 rainbow trout. Here are some of the pictures that my dad took of me. With 2 of the trout, I brought up some weeds that looked like mistletoe. So for one of the pictures, I joking called it the mistletoe trout. I also want to thank DNR for stocking the ponds with trout because they are really fun to catch.

NEW REPORT

My Largest Bass

Type: Freshwater
Region: Southern
Location: Local Pond

I went fishing with my dad in a pond in Avenue, Maryland and WOW I had a great surprise. I was using my new fishing pole from the fishing challenge (thank you so much DNR) when all of a sudden, wham something hit my line. It fought for a while and then when I saw it jump out of the water then finally I was able to land the fish. It was a largemouth bass. I wish I would of brought something to measure it because it looked like it was the largest bass that I ever caught.

Last week I went fishing twice (Brenton Bay and St. Clements Island Museum Fishing Pier). I didn't have any luck but I had a few bites.

No Fish Just Ponies at Assateague

Type: Ocean
Region: Eastern
Location: Assateague Island, MD

Last week my mom and dad took me to Assateague Island State Park to fish, see the ponies, and to do the Park Quest. We didn't catch any fish but we did see a couple of ponies.

I also visited my mom and dad's friends Bob and Sandy. Bob took us fishing at Crosswicks Creek in his boat. I caught a lot of fish (catfish, white perch, and one small rockfish). I released everything that I caught. I had a great day at both the places that I went to.
