Although it has been more than 11 years since Memorial Stadium was demolished, much of the concrete that once made up the bygone home of the Orioles, Colts and Ravens continues to host a hotbed of activity nearly 18 miles southeast of its previous location. In 2002, approximately 10,000 cubic yards of rubble from the stadium was deposited over a 6-acre site on the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay, 3 miles west of Tolchester Beach in Kent County. Every year since then, the Perry Hall chapter of the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association has organized the construction and placement of reef balls - hollow, flat-bottomed concrete blobs with holes - on a 1-acre section of the Memorial Stadium reef.

What is now billed as the "world's largest rockfish tournament" began 30 years ago with a different catch in mind - bluefish - and pretty much remained that way until a decade ago. That's when the once-plentiful bluefish population became scarce around the Chesapeake Bay and rockfish, which began to repopulate during a three-year moratorium in the early 1990s, became the event's focal point. And so was born "The Championship on the Chesapeake. " Part of a branding move by the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association, the event was expected to attract 500 boats and 3,500 anglers this weekend.

The pen is only mightier than the sword if it doesn't rain. Or snow. Or get wicked cold. In those cases, regular, civilian-issued ink pens run as smoothly as Rosie Ruiz in the Boston Marathon. But two pen makers - one new, the other an old standby - give you writing instruments that will go the distance. The new kid is Inka, a tiny pen in a stainless-steel housing that you put together to make a grown-up size pen. It works well in extreme conditions and attaches to your key chain, fishing vest or zipper pull.

Clarification An article in yesterday's editions of The Sun about Democratic candidates courting sportsmen quoted Rich Novotny, executive director of the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishermen's Association, at a rally for gubernatorial candidate Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. Novotny and MSSA president Bruno Vasta were at the Cecil County event as individuals, not in their official capacity. The association does not endorse candidates for governor, as was explained in another article this week.

The men behind the curtain doing the hiring in the Ehrlich administration have been plenty busy since taking over in January. One of the guys they didn't hire was Niccolo Machiavelli. Of course he's been dead about 500 years, but nobody's perfect. ("Nick Machiavelli," joked a sports colleague. "Raiders tackle, right?) In his writings, Machiavelli, the Renaissance political philosopher, advised that it's not what you do to people, it's what people perceive you're doing to them that counts.

This is the time of year when chumming becomes the preferred method of many Chesapeake Bay fishermen angling for rockfish, blues and sea trout, and Richard Novotny has come up with a new twist to an old idea.Chumming is the process of baiting the water with fish oils and bits of flesh to attract fish, bringing them up current into the chum line where baited hooks await.On charter boats, head boats and hardcore recreational fishing boats, alewives are fed into a grinder and spooned or ladled over the side steadily enough to entice the fish but not heavily enough to feed them.
