Captain Ahab was proved dead wrong when he went after Moby Dick. Captain Nemo encountered considerable misadventure 20,000 leagues under the sea. Now, the 1990 stock market having taken a plunge to the depths, some stalwart captains of investment have begun charting a stock-buying course which they hope is destined to provide a quality catch."

If there is a bright side to the passing of Tropical Storm Dennis and Hurricane Floyd earlier this month, it is that rivers and streams east of the Catoctin mountains and smaller reservoirs and lakes are in better shape than they were all summer. And as fall begins, freshwater fishing is picking up nicely. "Freshwater action should only get better in many locations, as water temperatures are now falling in the optimum range," said Fisheries Service biologist Martin L. Gary.

Fishing report The locations Piney Run: Tonight's another session of fishing until midnight at the park. The fee is $3 per boat plus the park entrance fee of $4 per carload. Top-water lures will attract bass, say Jim Gronaw and Loren Lustig at the park office. A deep-running, rattling crankbait cast along the edge of the hydrilla beds is another excellent choice. Work the tops of the beds with 9-inch, heavily scented rubber worms. Panfish are sitting 18-24 feet deep. Prettyboy Reservoir: Fish the humps, lumps, bumps and points, says guide Duke Nohe.

"Have you ever noticed that you don't really catch a bluefish," I gasped as my rod bent under the pressure of a 3-pounder, "but rather that they catch you?"Tom Campbell, however, was too busy attempting to tame his own finned wildcat to answer back under the heat of last Sunday's sun while we fished aboard Capt. Eddie Davis' Edith Rose. In fact, Capt. Eddie was the only one on board who didn't have his hands full of bucking rod and that was because he was too busy helping us unhook the gunmetal blue savages so that we could get a lure back into action.

Each spring for 16 years, the Naval Academy Sailing Squadron and the Greater Annapolis Chamber of Commerce have held the Safety-at-Sea Seminar, and in most years the sessions have been sold out and boaters who have attended have been glad they've done so..This year, the seminar will be held April 1 and 2 at Mahan Hall on the academy grounds. The two-day event is separated into two levels, with April 1 set aside for basic instruction and April 2 for advanced sailors.Topics to be discussed include safety gear, EPIRBs and their uses, medical considerations, crew and boat preparation, Chesapeake Bay weather and heavy weather.

Rockfish season has been open for 11 days, and according to Department of Natural Resources catch reports, "there is no shortage of big, bruiser stripers in the middle and upper bay.""Stripers of this size class have not been encountered at this time of year in the sheer numbers we have been seeing over the past several days," said Martin L. Gary, DNR Fisheries Service biologist who tracks sport fishing across the state."RJ's Bait and Tackle in Breezy Point alone reported over 20 citation stripers checked in over the weekend."

The locations Morgan Run: Trout are everywhere, and the water's great, so what are you waiting for? "There is no excuse," says Robert Sollott of Angler's Hollow in Westminster. "This is get-out-there-and-fish kind of weather." The water has cleared; the fish are skittish and spread out. Beetles and ants are great, as are small caddis. Prettyboy Reservoir: Fish surface plugs, pig-and-jigs, plastic worms, or live bait 15 to 25 feet deep for smallmouth bass. Duke Nohe says he and partner Clem Luberecki caught 14 fish last Friday, including a 6-pound largemouth on a surface plug.

Sometimes it pays not to catch the biggest rockfish in the Chesapeake. Take the other day as an example.The fish felt huge when it struck near the yellow buoy just south of Green Buoy No. 5 off Pooles Island. It smacked a Nick's Stix Stinger eel of white shortly after I paid out enough line to work it about 15 feet down.Skipper Scott Sewall at the wheel of his 25-footer was reading fish halfway down on his electronic fish-finder, others on the bottom. We decided to leave the bottom huggers to those drifting eels nearby.
