Hart Crane's "My Grandmother's Love Letters" is one of the great lyric poems of the 20th century. It begins: "There are no stars to-night/ But those of memory./ Yet how much room for memory there is / In the loose girdle of soft rain." In four lines, Crane has given us one of the simple but powerful formulas by which poetry operates: a stimulus in the present, such as the absence of stars, calls forth memory. And memory, though it is eventually located in particulars, is at first nothing more than space and possibility.

What is now billed as the "world's largest rockfish tournament" began 30 years ago with a different catch in mind - bluefish - and pretty much remained that way until a decade ago. That's when the once-plentiful bluefish population became scarce around the Chesapeake Bay and rockfish, which began to repopulate during a three-year moratorium in the early 1990s, became the event's focal point. And so was born "The Championship on the Chesapeake. " Part of a branding move by the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association, the event was expected to attract 500 boats and 3,500 anglers this weekend.

A year after the rockfish season was cut short because recreational and commercial fishermen were charged with poaching with illegally tied-down gill nets, a bill proposing the ban of all gill nets in Maryland waterways will be considered by the General Assembly. Sponsored by the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association and state Sen. Kathy Klausmeier, a Baltimore County Democrat, Senate Bill 1032 calls for the ban of gill nets whether they are weighted down or not. Gill nets are legal, but it has been illegal to hold the nets down with weights since 1985.

Equating the stocking of menhaden in Maryland's waters to a set of traffic lights, Mike Waine sees the current plight somewhere closer to red than green. Waine, the fisheries management coordinator for the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, said Tuesday's two-hour hearing in Annapolis helped gauge the public's view on the overfishing of menhaden — and the future management of the species. Once considered a delicacy, menhaden are now more highly regarded as the main forager of unwanted algae as well as a source of food for the region's striped bass population.

With the lure of making as much as $100,000 in prize money, nearly 4,000 anglers in some 650 boats are expected to descend on the Chesapeake Bay next weekend for what is billed as "the largest rockfish tournament in the world. " According to Dave Smith, executive director of the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association, there are "over 50 ways to win. " First place in the main draw is worth a guaranteed $15,000. The big money is made in what MSSA bills as a "tournament within a tournament.

Tony Tochterman, who along with his wife, Dee, owns Tochterman's Fishing Tackle, the city's oldest bait and tackle store, remembers it well. Tony and Bob Wall, division chief of Baltimore's Recreation and Parks Department, helped introduce area children to fishing by hosting a tournament. As they led the group down the hill, rods in hand, the Inner Harbor slowly came into view and the children's eyes lit up. "Wow," one youth said. "That's the ocean. " Wrong. "They had never seen water before," Tochterman said.
