Fishing is fishing right now.We're riding on a seam between spring and summer, and action on the bay is different from one day to thenext.Bluefish, for example, are neither here nor there. Saturday, large schools of the 1- to 5-pound snappers moved north of what used to be buoy 54 in the Point No Point area and were headed in our direction. A nasty afternoon thunderstorm moved through the area, overturning small boats and causing havoc, and by Sunday, the bluefish had retreated several miles south, below the Target Ship.

KENT NARROWS -- The manatee -- Florida's official state marine mammal -- has turned up in Maryland waters for the first time.The state Department of Natural Resources is asking boaters near the Chester River and Eastern Bay to be on the lookout for, but not to approach, the 7- to 10-foot-long manatee, or "sea cow," sighted several times over the weekend.A large, aquatic creature found primarily in Florida's warm waters, the manatee is an endangered species. It surfaces to breathe and is susceptible to injury from boat hulls and propellers.

In the four days out the first week of the trophy rockfish season, at least one trophy fish had been hooked per day, and three trophies had been caught and released -- including a 49-incher taken on a white spoon at the south side of the mouth of Eastern Bay.But early last week the fishing slowed, for me at least.The channel edges off Poplar Island and Bloody Point did not yield a keeper during short trips Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Frankly, I began to think I might not catch another fish above the 36-inch minimum.

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.

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.
