AS MY SONS and I rolled out of Baltimore at 4 o'clock one morning this week, a voice from the backseat grunted: "This reminds me of swim meets." "Yeah," another voice replied, "but even swim meets weren't this early." So began a day of winter fishing, a reunion of sorts for some kids home from college for the holidays and a couple of dads. Driving through the pre-dawn darkness, I replayed in my mind how I got involved in this trip. Basically, I got hornswoggled by Bowen P. Weisheit Jr., an attorney and family friend.

Rick Snider of Biglerville, Pa., was the top winner in the grand-prize drawing at the Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale last Sunday, walking away with a boat, motor and trailer from Bass Pro Shops and Tracker Boats. "Aside from my kids, grandkids and wife, this is the most awesome thing to ever happen," said Snider, who qualified for the drawing by catching an Angler Award-qualifying 40.5-inch striped bass off Breezy Point in Calvert County from his sailboat. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources presented more than $70,000 in cash, prizes and merchandise at the celebration of fishing attended by more than 2,000 people, including sponsors, contestants and their guests, at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis.

Baltimore schools Chief Executive Officer Bonnie S. Copeland announced last night that she is investigating "alleged improprieties" by her senior staff, as accusations surfaced that top deputies tried to use school system money to charter a boat and drank alcohol inside system headquarters. Vowing that the investigation will be "swift and thorough," Copeland said the system has worked hard in recent months to regain public confidence and does not want to do anything to jeopardize that.

The state prosecutor's office is investigating allegations that top Baltimore school system officials tried to tap an equipment account to pay for a recreational fishing trip originally planned as a staff retreat, according to sources close to the investigation. The office is reviewing school system records as it conducts an investigation of possible fiscal misconduct involving the fishing trip, taken May 19 by about 10 system and city officials. Last week, the system's chief operating officer, Eric T. Letsinger, was fired as the system conducted its own investigation into the trip and other allegations, including drinking alcohol in a school office.

Let's face the painful facts of life and admit that a guided hunt for a Montana elk or Alaskan brown bear and such is beyond the means of most sportsmen's budgets.An acquaintance of mine, who doesn't lose a wink of sleep over how he's going to make his next BMW payment, thinks nothing of spending the equivalent of my annual grocery budget for a two-week guided hunting or fishing trip to some exotic location twice a year.Many have tried to beat the guided game by loading the car and pointing it in the appropriate exotic direction.

Today, friends, we shall contemplate mating carp and surfing turtles, and just about anything else I can remember from a recent fishing trip to Liberty Reservoir with my pal Bush Hog.I remember distinctly that, in preparation for the first fishing trip of the year -- and the first one in too long a time -- I went to a tackle shop. And while I was there, a fellow came in and inquired as to the best catfish bait on the market. And the big guy behind the counter, who was divvying and bagging night crawlers at the time, nodded in the general direction of an aisle in the store and said: "Earthworm hot dogs.

The chief operating officer of the Baltimore school system was fired yesterday as school officials continued to investigate accusations of misconduct, including an alleged abortive plan to use system funds for a fishing junket. Eric T. Letsinger, who has been an ally of Mayor Martin O'Malley, oversaw more than 1,000 employees in the school system's police, food services, transportation, and building maintenance and construction departments since May 2005. He came under scrutiny after chartering a boat to take about 10 school system and city employees on a fishing trip May 19. Letsinger, 38, said last night that he was "mystified" by yesterday's action, but he will accept it because "I remain committed to assuring that the public has trust in the system's leadership."

For a couple of days, between the time Irene roared through and someone on our street decided to fire up a noisy generator, my neighborhood had been as quiet as when our houses were new and occupied by large families of long-gone Baltimoreans who had few electrical amenities. That's an assumption, of course, but an informed one. Most of these houses were built early in the 20th century, long before television or computers, before electric dryers, even before the expansion of commercial radio.

Most of us who love the outdoors think being out there is its own reward. But Wheel of Fortune had nothing on Maryland's Department of Natural Resources in the prize department yesterday. With sunny skies and big blue skies providing a spectacular backdrop, fishing gear and camping trips practically flew into the hands of anglers and state park users as two popular summer competitions ended their annual runs. At Sandy Point State Park, more than 600 anglers and their families camped out on the grassy edge of the beach to see if they might win one of the Maryland Fishing Challenge grand prizes or a door prize ponied up by sponsors.

President Bush traversed the Chesapeake Bay on an invigorating fall morning yesterday, announcing conservation measures for migratory birds while on the west side of the waterway and for striped bass on the east before getting in some fishing himself. At the national Patuxent Research Refuge in Laurel, the president promoted policies he said would protect habitat for 800 bird species that need resting places as they fly south for the winter and return when warm weather returns. After a helicopter ride to St. Michaels, Bush unveiled an initiative to make red drum and striped bass, known locally as rockfish, more available to sport fishermen but less accessible as a commercial catch.

For 36 years, members of the Water & Woods Fishing Club have gathered at Harrison's Chesapeake House on Tilghman Island on the last Friday in April to eat, drink and be merry, before waking at the crack of dawn Saturday for a day on the bay. The club got its start in 1958, when 30 sportsmen got together to fish the Choptank River with Capt. Buddy Harrison, and the rest is history. Today the doctors, lawyers, politicos and writers who arrive at Tilghman share one primary interest: They are all "FOBs."
