Rockfish | WYPR


Feb 27, 2018

We’ve had some unseasonably warm weather recently, which teases so many possibilities for springtime and beyond. Of course, when we’re having such pleasant weather in February, it makes me think of one of my favorite outdoor activities—fishing.

Last year in May, I was out on the Bay for a Saturday fishing trip. The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing—it was a truly picture perfect day in Maryland. Suddenly, my line tightened—I had a bite! As I embarked on one of man’s most harrowing primeval adventures—the battle between a man and a fish on his line—I could feel the excitement build. The fish put up quite a fight, but in the end I had caught a 25 inch Rockfish, also known as a Striped Bass.
