I haven’t gone fishing since I was maybe twelve years old, but while in Maryland for Thanksgiving the opportunity to go fishing on a friend’s boat presented itself and I just went for it. I figured if worst came to worst, I like boats, early mornings, and friends so it would still be a good day even if I was a horrible fisherwoman.
We set up near Holland Island, which used to be inhabited but erosion has left only some shrubs and old house frames. It turned out to be the perfect spot, and I caught the first fish (rockfish- a kind of bass) of the day! It was too small to keep, but I got the ball rolling for everyone else as well.
