FRANK ROYLANCE — Gary Stag of Severna Park is a surf fisherman. He is baffled by the cold water he feels while fishing at Assateague Island and the comparatively higher temperatures listed below for the island. "Where in the heck do they measure that water temperature for Assateague?" he asks. Our label is misleading. The sensor is at Public Landing, Md., on the west side of Chincoteague Bay. Calm, toasty bay water. For Assateague ocean temperatures, see Ocean City's, measured at an offshore data buoy.
