It must be spring in Carroll County!Reasonable weather, which isn't always a sure thing when the Early Bird Fishing Tournament holds court each year at Piney Run Park, helped pull anglers from around the area to participate this popular event.The top prize winner was Robert Nichell's 17.75-pound, 37 1/8 -inch striped bass, which netted him $700 in prize money. Nichell's fish was caught from a boat, but Patrick Heilman's 14-inch, 1.46-pound catfish (worth $600)

One might not associate ocean fishing with 100-pound fish, sponsorships and millions in cash prizes. But for fishing boat captain Ted Deppe, that's what it is. The 52-year-old from Crownsville, along with two crewmates and five anglers, spend much of their free time competing in ocean fishing competitions, and have been very successful - so much so that Deppe's team was recently offered a sponsorship from Under Armour, which pays for its gear....

RISON -- It takes all kinds to make a bass fishing tournament. Just look at the roster for the Bassmaster Northern Open competition that starts today, for example. One angler is a former Kentucky Derby jockey. Another is a successful Maryland amateur trying to make it to the top again as a pro. Six men are using the Potomac River event as a tuneup for next month's 2003 BASSMASTERS Classic. Then there is Baltimore County's Jo Ann Wheeler, one of only a few women at the event and possibly the only angler to have run away from the circus.

I GOT OUT of my cab in front of the Omni Hotel on Fayette Street and, without bothering to check in, headed straight for the bell stand. "Hey, fella," I said to the first bellman I saw, "Where's the best place to go rat fishing around here?"Bill Walters, the bellman, pondered for a moment, consulted a co-worker, and said, "Probably down on Redwood Street, after 10 at night when there aren't too many cars around. Lots of big ones there."His co-worker Ezana ("Call me Easy") Mengistad, disagreed.

I hate fishing. It all started when I was 5 years old and my father and uncle took me on a deep-sea charter from the South Carolina beach where my family vacationed. As the boat bobbed away from the shore, the pungent odors wafting from piles of bait and chain-smoking deckhands unsettled my stomach. On top of that, I was bored to death, staring at my line, waiting for it to jerk. Funny thing was, I hooked the biggest fish of the day, the one that became dinner that night. I still have a picture of me hefting it on the dock.

CRISFIELD - For all his wandering about Delmarva, Charles Norris "Scorchy" Tawes has never met a stranger, he has never lacked for stories and he's never ceased to be fascinated by the rural peninsula where he knows somebody "just about everywhere." Tawes believes that pretty much anyone has a story, and if people trust you, they'll tell the truth. Now, after a lifetime of putting their stories on film and video, the 81-year-old is spending a good chunk of what is supposed to be retirement hunched in front of a desktop computer or out wandering his bayside hometown with a digital camera.

This week, the Harbour Island Marina is a world untouched by everyday concerns like Enron, snakeheads - or SPF 40. It's all about the billfish, says the founder of the annual White Marlin Open. That's the reason thousands of spectators line the docks and boat slips each evening to cheer the tanned, muscled men who hoist huge fish pulled out of the Atlantic onto a digital scale.
