It shouldn't come as a surprise, I suppose, that the striped bass season began Saturday with uneasy folks focused on the intensity and direction of the wind. Concerns about our own health and well-being on the water aren't much different than the worries a lot of people have about the health and well-being of the fish themselves. Two decades removed from the end of the moratorium that helped bring striped bass back from the brink of extinction, there's a growing feeling that the winds have shifted and we're seeing the makings of another crash.

Natural Resources Police officers recovered another 1,500 yards of illegal fishing net containing 300 pounds of striped bass Wednesday night in Eastern Bay off Kent Island. This is the eighth time in three weeks that patrol boats dragging grappling hooks have snagged submerged nets. The total length of confiscated nets is 5.5 miles and the weight of the poached striped bass, also known as rockfish, is 12.6 tons. NRP Sgt. Art Windemuth said the latest nets had been in the water for some time because officers found decomposing mud shad in them along with live striped bass.

I read Victoria Weiskopf's letter in The Sun with growing amusement ("Progress comes slow to a space-age town," Sept 25). One would be forgiven for assuming that Ms. Weiskopf and her significant other retired to Virginia's Eastern Shore because, after due diligence, they found the region's lifestyle to their liking. But this is, apparently, not the case. She bemoans the region's "obstacles to real social progress" and its lack of support for a "progressive culture. " In fact, so oppressive do they find their present (meaning not liberal)

From the mouth of the Patapsco River to Chesapeake Bay's confluence with the Potomac River, fishing has been superb during the past week, and indications are that it will be hotter by the weekend.Rockfish, spot, croaker, perch, catfish, sea trout, flounder and increasing numbers of bluefish are available to anglers in the right locations at the right times.For upper bay anglers, rockfish catches continue to be very good for chummers from Belvedere Shoals to Snake Reef and along the edges near Poole's Island.

Bobby Smith's call came at just the right time. "Let's go do some bassin' down on Mattawoman Creek tomorrow," he suggested.I had been on vacation all week and frankly had approached my congenial limits on undersized striped bass and doves that failed to materialize in fields that should have been loaded with them. Some largemouth bassing on the tidal Potomac seemed like the perfect cure to an otherwise frustrating week.Famed Potomac bass guide Ken Penrod once told me, "Mattawoman Creek contains the best ratio of largemouth bass age-to-size than any other tidal water in the state," and despite the tremendous amounts of fishing pressure it faces, that statement holds true.
