Lester Lee, the quintessential Chesapeake Bay waterman -- gentle, hard-working and religious -- died of kidney failure Tuesday at the home of a son in Dominion, Queen Anne's County. He was 86.Mr. Lee lived his entire life in Dominion -- part of the village of Chester, not far from Crab Alley Creek on Maryland's Kent Island -- in a two-story white clapboard house with a white picket fence and neat yard.Known as Captain Lester, the fourth-generation waterman spent years oystering and crabbing in Eastern Bay. He retired a little more than a decade ago.His feuding with "chicken neckers," earned him a chapter in William Warner's 1976 Pulitzer Prize-winning book, "Beautiful Swimmers."

It surfaces to breathe and is susceptible to injury from boat hulls and propellers.

The Stoney Creek Fishing and Hunting Club is a sportsman's mecca located off of Fort Smallwood Road in Pasadena.The club, founded in 1946, has "400 members and a two-year membership waiting list," said Club President Walt Riddiough.Unlike many private sportsmen's clubs, Stoney Creek goes out of its way to provide recreational shooting opportunities for the general public.Wes Grogan, Club Rangemaster and a former Stoney Creek president, said, "We believe that we owe fellow sportsmen an opportunity to use our shooting facilities because of the ever-increasing problem of too many prospective shooters and hunters and not enough public or private space for them to enjoy."

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.

The route to the Delaware shore is dotted with intriguing little antiques shacks and shops boasting such hand-painted signs as "Bob's Old Beds" and "Antiques Here." A drive to the beach provides the perfect opportunity for hunting antiques in these sleepy little towns along Route 50 and Route 404. But what's worth the stop? There's nothing less fun than a long drive to the beach broken up only by a series of stops at ho-hum shops. So we've done the legwork for you, discovering the real finds amid the shops that seemingly contain no more than the dumped contents of a junk drawer, circa 1985.

At a hearing last week in Annapolis on legislation that would prohibit the Department of Natural Resources from creating oyster sanctuaries, state Sen. Richard F. Colburn , the Eastern Shore Republican who sponsored it, asked repeatedly, "How did DNR draw the lines?" In the never-ending quest to answer such questions, Outdoors Girl has torn back the curtain of transparency to find out just how state officials chose which parts of the Chesapeake Bay would be set aside for the multimillion-dollar program to put oysters where they ain't.
