Sunday fishing

we still had really high tides on the Potomac today, despite the calm weather compared to Saturday. I trolled from here down the river then up the bay to the patuxent using chartreuse...tons of fish on the fish finder: not a bite today! should have listened to the wife: she over heard at rw's that people were hitting on white in 50 feet. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

how to cleanup the chesapeake bay

the environmental protection agency's draft on how to clean up the chesapeake bay (this time) is due this week. sediment samples from the 180-mile long estuary are being analyzed to pinpoint dead zones and help determine where actions need to be taken first. above is a photo of the vessel rachel carson carrying out research for the project by locating dead sediments, which are basically mud with little or no oxygen. Clams and worms and microscopic plants at the bottom of the food chain — down in the mud — need that oxygen and it isn't there. in oxygen's place is extra nitrogen and phosphorous, mostly from sewage, cars and fertilizer. The nitrogen and phosphorous act as food for algae, which eat them and grow into huge floating blooms. oxygen is removed from the water when the algae die and decompose: that's deadly.

fishing from a jetski

last night i did a post on tog caught from a jetski . nice photos, but later i began to think about this: where did he store the fish? how was this jet ski rigged? who was this guy? so, i checked jetski brian out. he came up with a truly custom pwc that can do most any fishing duty.
read his interesting story here.

nomura's jellyfish capsizes fishing boat

a japanese fishing trawler capsized when its three-man crew tried to haul in a net containing dozens of huge nomura's jellyfish: they were rescued by another trawler. the local coast guard office reported that the weather was clear and the sea was calm at the time of the accident.
relatively little is known about this huge jellyfish, such as why some years see thousands of the creatures floating across the sea of japan on the tsushima current: 15,500 reports of damage to fishing equipment was reported in 2007. in 2008 there were virtually no sightings. experts believe weather and water conditions in the breeding grounds, off the coast of china, have been ideal for the jellyfish in recent months. they also believe that one contributing factor to the jellyfish becoming more frequent visitors to japanese waters may be a decline in the number of predators, which include sea turtles and certain species of fish.
hope they dont make it to the chesapeake anytime soon!
