State biologists have bagged a bundle of bad news: a 3-inch fingerling that looks a lot like a baby northern snakehead, the invader from overseas that has infested a pond in Crofton. Snakehead stalker Joe Gillespie - the Crofton angler who landed a 26-inch specimen two weeks ago - packed the little green creature in a plastic bag and gave it to Maryland Department of Natural Resources biologists yesterday. Gillespie told them he netted seven more just like it Monday night, said DNR spokesman John Surrick.

America hates a liar -- or, at least, it hates a liar who gets caught. Lies, per se, are not un-American, of course. By design, Hollywood, the American mythmaker, is and always has been a cottage industry of fancies and fakes. It has infected the whole of American life so much that we are almost unable to distinguish between real and celluloid life -- a truth richly examined in "Life: The Movie" by Neal Gabler (Knopf, 290 pages, $27.50). We like our history revisionist, our effects sanguinary and our endings sanguine.

NORTH EAST -- The shortnose sturgeon is a little thing, as sturgeon go, and so easily caught that here on the Chesapeake it was fished into oblivion a century ago. It's such a rare fish in the bay that the last confirmed sighting of one was in 1986.So when two fishermen who work the waters at the head of the bay checked their nets Tuesday and found one, it seemed like pretty big news. When they went back the next day and found two more, it was like hitting the sturgeon jackpot.For a fish that's long been on the endangered species list, it was an embarrassment of riches.

It's been a fishing kind of week in Ocean City -- cool and misty weather has given vacationers the urge to fish and crab rather than sit on the beach.Earlier last week the fishing was quite good. The wind did not blow, and the water was clear. Anglers did especially well with the flounder. The channel in front of 33rd Street, which anglers call the Convention Hall Channel, produced some good catches.Five-year-old Ross Levin and his father from Clarksville picked up three flounder up to 15 inches with shiners and squid near Buoy No. 9. Craig and Brian Haas landed a 2 1/2 -pounder drifting by Buoy No. 11 -- in the same vicinity.
