Carole Lorden played 6-1-3 in the Maryland lottery and lost. But her husband, Don, struck it big with the same numbers during last weekend's Ocean City Shark Fishing Tournament, setting a state record for thresher shark. Don Lorden hooked the 613-pound deep-sea monster on June 13, the middle day of the three-day tournament. The thresher was just under 15 feet long, or better than two David Robinsons end-to-end, and was bigger around than Verne Troyer, or "Mini-Me," is tall. To put it another way, Lorden's boat is only 10 feet longer than his catch.

TILGHMAN -- "Oh, not another one already," Bobbie Seger said to no one in particular as she left her deck chair and again took up her fishing rod. "I was just going to get out my book, but these blues won't give me a moment's peace."Two hours out of Harrison's Fishing Center in Talbot County, with 18 or so 3- to 5-pound bluefish already in the box, the fishing had indeed been good -- and there had been little down time for the Seger family of Easton and Oxford and their houseguests from Denmark.

Learning to fish is easy, right? Take one fishing pole, one worm and just add water. But there's a little more to it than that, especially when the angler-to-be is a youngster. With school, sports teams and computer play competing for ever-shrinking free time -- and parents experiencing the same time crunch -- fewer children are experiencing what was once considered a rite of passage: catching a wiggling bluegill. Still, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources says that with an estimated 216,000 anglers between the ages of 6 and 15, there's plenty of life left in the sport.

Capt. Doug Scheible, better known as the skipper of the headboat Bay King out of Scheible's Fishing Center at Ridge, has turned to a different kind of shooting preserve business to tide him over the winter.Scheible and his son Dale, a charterboat captain out of the family's fishing center, operate Triple-D Ranch of 10,500 acres 20 miles east of Sarasota, Fla. Wild boar are the big drawing card, but there is also shooting for quail, rabbits, doves, deer and wild turkeys.The deer are smaller than our whitetails, but have nice antlers, said Scheible, who reported a 12-pointer was checked in yesterday.

Most days, self-employed home improvement contractor Russell Kelly would be hard at work on a remodeling job. But not on this day. Not when there are fish to be caught at Loch Raven Reservoir. "We're trying to hide, sneak out of work a little bit," Kelly says, speaking for the fishermen of greater Baltimore as he loads a tackle box the size of a small suitcase into a rented johnboat. Quickly, he adds: "Without our wives catching us." If it's spring, it's time for humans to return to Loch Raven -- even if that means burning a vacation day or playing hooky.

The locations Piney Run: All the rainy, chilly weather has kept the bass on the beds, say Jim Gronaw and Loren Lustig at the park office. Anglers are sight fishing with plastic lizards and worms. The fish are averaging 2 pounds, with a handful twice that size. Chicken livers and cut bait are enticing channel catfish. John Brosene of Sykesville landed a big cat weighing 6.59 pounds and 26 1/2 inches long. Huge bluegills are being reeled in by dock fishermen using worms and mealworms. Yellow perch are taking minnows and worms.

The yellow perch run was pretty much a bust. The Susquehanna Flats is colder than my ex-mother-in-law's heart. And the Potomac is high and muddy. Good thing St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow and spring begins Thursday. Looking for a little cheering up, I called Kevin McComas at the Loch Raven Fishing Center. "We're waking up, stretching out and knocking the ice off things," he said. "There's 4 inches of ice in the coves, but it's spongy. A couple of warm days and it should be gone. The main lake opened up last week."

By now I'm guessing you've seen the TV commercials or magazine ads that have adorable children urging grown-ups to "take me fishing." The ads and commercials are the work of the nonprofit Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation and the message is a good one, and not just because it helps create a new generation of readers for this column. Fishing's not hard to learn (although the number of how-to books and TV shows out there might scare you into thinking that you'd be better off learning bypass surgery)

While many anglers head for Eastern Shore creeks and rivers to fish the run of white perch, black bass fishing has been improving on the Potomac, Susquehanna and Wicomico rivers as the weather warms.Life Outdoors Unlimited's Ken Penrod reports that guides working for his service (301-937-0010) have had good success throughout the region, even though river water temperatures are cool.The Upper Potomac and the Susquehanna from Duncannon to Halifax are in very good shape for smallmouths, and the upper tidal Potomac and Wicomico in the Salisbury area are good for largemouths.
