Fishing boats come in all shapes and sizes -- from 8-footers suited to small ponds to 60-footers suited for running to the offshore canyons. No two are exactly the same, and no two are likely to appeal equally to any one buyer.And when the boat show comes to the Convention Center each winter, casting about for a good fishing boat can be almost as much fun as catching fish, although picking a handful of possibilities from among the hundreds of boats on display is a good deal harder.In the 22- to 26-foot range of fishing boats -- sizes that are trailerable, roomy enough for four fishermen and large enough to handle a rough day on Chesapeake Bay -- the following models are among many on display at the show, which runs through Sunday.

The 30th annual United States Powerboat Show will motor into Annapolis Harbor this week with hundreds more - and pricier - boats than hailed to the capital city last weekend for its cousin, the United States Sailboat show, the favorite in this sailing community. With about 470 boats in water, a couple of hundred smaller boats on shore, and about 400 vendors with equipment, services and products, the powerboat show is revved up to draw about as many visitors as the sailboat show, which organizers estimated at 50,000 people.

At its spring meeting Tuesday in Alexandria, Va., the fisheries commission voted to allow fishing boats catching smooth dogfish to more than double the ratio of fins to bodies that they bring back to...

A preliminary report on the deaths of two anglers on the opening day of the Chesapeake Bay rockfish season says all six persons aboard the boat that capsized off Point Lookout had life vests, but not all wore them, according to the Maryland Natural Resources Police. David Fletcher, 43, and David Chase, 55, both of Lexington Park in Southern Maryland, died Saturday morning when a friend's fishing boat took on water and capsized. Four persons, including the owner-operator of the boat, were rescued.

The folks who decide how we gather and protect the Chesapeake Bay's bounty may need to borrow Capt. Jack Sparrow's wacky compass to keep their bearings. Clearly, the headline-grabbing activities of poachers last year and this year have presented the state and its fisheries managers with a window of opportunity to make sweeping changes that address sustainability, accountability and enforceability, not only on the commercial side but on the recreational side, too. But given the attention span of our lawmakers, that window won't be open very long.

Four-time freestyle kayak world champion Eric Jackson learned his sport paddling Maryland's waters and raised money for his 1992 Olympic campaign by going door-to-door and panhandling on street corners. Now 46, EJ, as the paddling world calls him, is riding high in the water as owner of one of the most successful kayak manufacturing companies and as father of the women's world freestyle champion. He's also plotting to retake the title of world's best next year, wrestling the crown from a competitor he knows all too well: his son-in-law.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Maryland's lucrative and popular trophy striped bass season will be a shell of its former self this spring after regulators decided yesterday to drastically reduce the state's catch. By a vote of 7-6, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission rejected a proposal by Maryland to eliminate the spring quota and allow recreational fishing under regulations similar to other Eastern Seaboard states. Instead, it overwhelmingly approved a target quota of 30,000 fish - about half the total catch in each of the past two years.

The best boat shows are those that focus heavily on vessels that are well-suited to the most common activities and conditions on and in nearby waters. The Chesapeake Bay Boat Show, which opened yesterday at the Convention Center, seems to do just that, with a strong mix of fishing, cruising and day boats.Among the new designs on hand are 26- and 32-foot express cruisers by Carver and Trojan, a 22-foot, flush-deck utility boat by Denali, a slew of Bayliner Capri models from 16 to 20 feet, a pair of 16- and 18-foot jet boats from Sea-Doo and the Albemarle 247 Express Fisherman, a top-of-the-line 24-footer that will handle either coastal or bay-wide fishing.
