Rockfish Trouble by Joe Evans

T

hose of us who fished in the late 1970s and ‘80s, when the striped bass population collapsed due to overfishing and pollution, are getting a sense of déjà vu as we head into the 2019 season. We recall that the decline was so severe that the 1979 Congress enacted the Emergency Striped Bass Act to force and fund efforts to assess the situation and develop restoration strategies. Five years later, Maryland Governor Harry Hughes declared a moratorium on commercial and recreational striped bass harvests. Eventually, the other striped-bass states followed suit. It took ten years of research, restraint, money, restoration, and angst before the scientists could say the fishery was recovered. It was painful and embarrassing that we didn’t have the institutional courage and sense to act earlier. Maybe it could have been avoided. But that’s not how our unique, Jeffersonian democracy works, really. Those who show up at public and private meetings and shout the loudest often get their way, while those who stay home forfeit their position on the matter. Thus, those who might suffer short-term losses in the bargain win a battle, while the Bay and its denizens get lost in the shuffle. The conservation can gets kicked down the road. In 1996, the Maryland Striped Bass Young-ofthe-Year Survey hit its highest point since the beginning of the study in the 1950s. The count

JUN 19 From the Editor.indd 8

has tumbled in fits and starts down to disturbing lows in 2006, 2008, 2012 and 2016. Between 2014 and 2017, the average annual recreational haul dropped from 25 million to 16 million pounds. Some of that is a result of modest tightening of the regulations. Note: 2015 brought an encouraging spike in the young-of-the-year number, which shores up an argument for not panicking…yet. Signs of trouble appeared to some of us in 2013 when every angler headed to the mouth of Eastern Bay to enjoy “great fishing” where the robust 2011 class of juvenile stripers was trapped by the summer dead-zone of oxygendepleted main-stem Chesapeake waters. The fish got hammered. I was there with everybody else, catching and releasing, and doing what I thought was the right thing. It might have been the wrong thing. Anglers release more than 90 percent of the fish they catch due to size and creel limits and, for a fringe of thoughtful anglers, conservation concerns—roughly 12 million fish in 2017. Fisheries analysts use a ninepercent mortality rate for released fish, which in 2017 amounted to 48 percent

June 2019

4/29/19 1:06 PM


of the total number of dead stripers, including all recreational and commercial harvests and releases. The nine-percent estimate is an average of survey results in various conditions and fish-handling techniques. What seems lost in the discussion is that, in the heat of summer, water and air temperature differentials produce very high release mortality rates. It’s probable that many if not most of the fish we photographed, revived and released to swim away in Eastern Bay that summer didn’t survive. Results of a new striped bass population assessment released in February indicates that the fishery is shaky. The female spawning stock is below the safety threshold and it is “overfished.” Virginia, almost immediately, took a slightly symbolic action to curtail the damage by cancelling its modest spring trophy season. Maryland’s comparatively huge trophy season, which targets stripers going to and from their natal spawning rivers, kicked off as usual with no indication that the state will do anything this year. Eventually, the other states at the Atlantic States Marine Fishery Commission table may force the issue as corrective action becomes a reality. The process for sorting this out in favor of the resource will be complicated and fraught with pressure from those with immediate stakes in the fishery. The blame-game is heating up, as usual. There’s plenty to go around, and none of it is helpful. All we can do is stay informed, get involved, and consider the future before spouting opinions. Chesapeake Bay Magazine and the Bay Bulletin will continue to follow the issues. Changes are coming. h

The department retained the Chesapeake Conservancy to develop an ecotourism education program to increase incomes in watermen’s communities. Building on their

experience supporting the John Smith Chesapeake Historical Trail, the conservancy developed curricula and provided training to waterman to host tours and market ecotourism services.

The idea expanded to Virginia in 2013, when Chesapeake Environmental Communications (CEC) worked with the Virginia Waterman’s Association and the Rappahannock Community College (RCC) Workforce and Community Development Office to support the growing ecotourism industry. The collaborative Virginia program now offers free tourism training to qualified watermen and women. It delivers a three-course program that covers marketing, customer service, safety, liability and insurance, and building community partnerships.

After 40 years of pulling an oyster dredge from a skipjack under sail, Captain Farley demonstrates graceful and vanishing sailing skills. He offers guidance to novices: “You have to glide over the bar and work along the edges,” he advises as he lets out the mainsail. And he reflects on his younger days when Tilghman Island hosted 19 working oyster skipjacks. Captain Ed began escorting educational groups for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in the 1980s. Now he operates regular skipjack tours out of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels. Like most watermen, Captain Farley loves his work. “There are no guarantees in life,” he reflects. “You have to do what you love before it’s too late.” h

n most days, Captain J.C. Hudgins and his mate, Raymond Walker, pull about 100 crab pots from the Hole in the Wall channel near Mathews, Virginia. But two days a week, Captain Hudgins takes a break from commercial crabbing to host tourists aboard Risky Business II and explain the ecology and the rich maritime tradition of Mobjack Bay near the southern end of the Bay. Hudgins grew up here as the son of a watermen, and he can point out his boyhood home from the stern of his crab skiff. A former oil-tanker captain, he left Virginia to pilot commercial vessels around US ports but returned to Mathews to work as waterman. Walker knows why. “I love the water,” he says, “It’s my home and it gives me my freedom.” His knowledge, experience, and easy-going style make Hudgins a great tour operator. He is a natural and warm story teller with a rich Mathews accent that shines like a church bell. But Hudgins speaks with special resonance for watermen and tourists. As president of the Virginia Watermen’s Association, he serves as an advocate for Bay fisheries. In his tour operator role, he brings knowledge and purpose to his work.

“I want for people to know where their seafood comes from,” he says. For Hudgins and Walker, it comes from crab pots baited with oily menhaden and pulled aboard a two-man skiff stacked with crab baskets. As Walker separates captured crabs into various baskets, Hudgins estimates the value of the catch. “These number one jimmies fetch $80 per bushel; but those small crabs will bring only $24,” he figures. Walker nods and tosses a small crab into basket number two. After returning to the dock, Hudgins takes his catch to the local processing facility and delivers seven bushels of fresh blue crab before 9 a.m.. Hudgins shares his waterman wisdom with tourists around Mobjack Bay aboard the 36-foot Risky Business II docked at his home pier near Mathews. Tours usually last two to three hours and can be customized to meet special interests. h June 2019

aptain Trey Sowers likes to show off his boat. And for good reason. In 2014, Trey restored an authentic 34-foot, 1991 Chesapeake Bay deadrise built by legendary Rappahannock boat builder Al Silvey. He refitted the Helen Elizabeth as an excursion vessel and now proudly points out upgrades to visitors who appreciate a classic wooden boat: new juniper washboards and strip-planked sides crafted from local pine and fir, all tacked onto a solid oak frame. Sowers works full-time as owner of Chapel Creek Oyster Company and leads tourist excursions to supplement his income. Aboard his classic deadrise, Trey shares his knowledge of estuary ecology and recounts colorful stories of historic Mobjack Bay. Most visitors board the Helen Elizabeth from the Inn at Tabbs Creek in Port Haywood, Virginia for two-hour sunset cruises on the East

River of Mobjack Bay. From his perch on the starboard rail, Sowers recounts the former oyster shucking houses, ship building yards, and steamship wharves that lined this Virginia coast prior to the 1933 Chesapeake-Potomac Hurricane. As the Helen Elizabeth moves up the East River, Sowers points out an 18th century tidal water wheel and the former home of Captain Sally Tompkins, legendary Civil War nurse and the only female Confederate officer. Under a setting sun, Sowers turns his attention to oysters and shows visitors how to shuck and eat the slippery bivalves. He invites a few hearty volunteers to try them. He talks with authority about oyster farming and the growing specialty markets in Richmond restaurants. In Sowers, visitors will meet a new generation of watermen adapting to changing times with multiple skills. But like all watermen before him, Sowers shares a passion for the Bay and a keen eye for a good deadrise.

he eastern narrow-mouthed toad spends most of its time hiding. This plump, pointy-headed creature is about the size of a half-dollar, and it likes to burrow under dead vegetation so that only the top of its head is near the surface, the better to ambush ants that happen by. The species has been listed as endangered in Maryland since 1972. Given its lifestyle and rarity, the odds of spotting this animal might seem slim. Yet, a group of volunteers recently found it in four Maryland counties, including several locations on the Eastern Shore where it had never been documented. Such is the dedication of the herpetology—or “herp”—people, amphibian and reptile enthusiasts who helped create The Maryland Amphibian and Reptile Atlas, an exhaustive new survey of the state’s reptiles and amphibians. The five-year data collection project was sponsored by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Natural History Society of Maryland, but it was driven almost entirely by volunteers, more than 2,000 of them. The resulting volume, recently published by Johns Hopkins University Press, is a meticulously detailed guide, with lush color photos. The last time anyone attempted to catalogue the range of herp species in Maryland was in 1975. And that publication drew heavily on historical sightings, including reports dating back to the early 1900s. So, prior to the atlas project, no one knew the current status of many of the state’s reptiles and amphibians. “We were actively engaged with work on rare, threatened, and endangered species in Maryland,” says Glenn Therres, associate director for the DNR’s Wildlife and Heritage Service. He helped lead the atlas project. “But no one had done a comprehensive evaluation of all the reptiles and amphibians.”

A decade ago, a group of experts in the state decided the time had come. They ran a pilot project, then hired herpetologist Heather Cunningham as project coordinator, the only funded position. Then, they began drumming up volunteers to gather the massive amounts of data they would need. They reached out to local environmental groups, started a newsletter, developed a training manual, and handpicked coordinators for all 23 counties and Baltimore City. The volunteers were scientists, amateur naturalists, and

students, as well as those simply willing to take the time to report a turtle they’d seen on the way to the grocery store. “We didn’t exclude participation from anybody, and I think that’s why we were so successful,” Cunningham says. They created a grid and made sure that each unit was equally covered despite the paucity of volunteers in more rural areas. Soon, the data started streaming in. It came in the form of audio recordings, photographs, even the occasional snakeskin. In cases of the most common species, a description sufficed. Experts verified every record, and from 2010 through 2014, the volunteers racked up an astonishing 34,910 of them. Along the way, the participants gathered nearly as many stories. A volunteer in Harford County spotted a decidedly non-native American alligator floating in a pond, one of three reported during the survey. Someone in Garrett County described a search for seal salamanders that was interrupted by a curious bear. And then there was the guy who tied roadkill to a rope and dangled it from a bridge to attract aquatic turtles. (“Don’t try this at home, folks!” Cunningham says.)

Rainbow Snake

But data, of course, was the goal. The results reveal species’ distribution within the state, not population size. But now, researchers can compare current distributions to those from the 1975 publication. There were declines, particularly in urban areas like the Baltimore-Washington Corridor. But overall, the results are heartening. “The rare species were still rare and the common species were still common,” Cunningham says. (She emphasizes that it is difficult to compare precisely because the previous publication was a summary of historic reports, not a survey.) The lands surrounding the Chesapeake Bay, dubbed the Atlantic Coastal Plain, are particularly rich in reptile and amphibian species because of the diversity of habitat and the lower Eastern Shore’s many wetlands. The eastern narrow-mouthed toad was a species from the Bay region that unexpectedly gained territory. The data on another, the mud salamander, yielded a more unpleasant surprise. This red salamander with black spots was once found in numerous counties in proximity to the Bay; volunteers only found it in two this time around.

“That is a species the DNR will have to take a closer look at,” Therres says. Five species of sea turtle are found in the Bay but the atlas project did not survey for them, instead relying on reports from the Maryland Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Stranding Network. Other studies indicate that nearly all sea turtle species are declining but the results in this particular survey were inconclusive. The main goal of the project was to establish a baseline for future research. “Globally, amphibians and reptiles are in trouble,” Cunningham says. “And we’re in a place where we have a strong diversity of them. To conserve them, we really need an understanding of their current distribution patterns.” “And now,” says Glenn Therres, “We have it.” “We took a very aggressive approach to documenting distribution,” he says. “I think we really kicked butt.”  Andrea Appleton is a freelance writer who covers science and the environment.

Flights of Fancy Portsmouth Aeroshipbuilding’s alternative history takes off. by Charlie Youngmann

hile gravitational displacement technology may seem like a scientific impossibility, artist Tony Snipes swears this technology not only exists, but that it’s been a mainstay of the Portsmouth Shipbuilding industry since the 1940’s. For the past couple of years, Snipes has been building out the fictional world that surrounds the Portsmouth Aeroshipbuilding Company, with its majestic flying vessels, through his Facebook page. There, he posts paintings, sketches, and models of massive airships that resemble Naval vessels. “The goal of the project has been, first of all, to do a kind of tribute to my

hometown, Portsmouth, Virginia, and its Naval and shipbuilding history, but then to put a little bit of that sci-fi spin on it with it being something like an alternate history version of what may have been going on at the shipyards in the 1940’s,” Snipes says. Snipes, who now lives in South Carolina, said he draws on inspiration from his time spent growing up in Portsmouth to create scenes that help his viewers “escape the mundane one image at a time,” as the Facebook page’s mantra goes. Snipes pointed to three key events that altered the course of history in his imaginary timeline: The first being that Abraham Lincoln survived his assassination attempt, the second being that Nikola Tesla was declared the victor of his long-battled inventor rivalry with Thomas Edison, and the third being the inexplicable survival of one of the Titanic’s designers, who in our timeline, went down with the ship. In character, Snipes works for the fictional shipyard as a public relations officer. In this way, Snipes said he can connect the viewer to the time and place of the Portsmouth Aeroshipbuilding Company and provide a window into his world. Snipes says he interacts with every department at the aeroshipbuilding company, from management to the engineers to the riveters. One of his primary responsibilities is inviting guests to the facility to consult on aeroship design and construction. One such group has often been the Tuskegee Airmen, he said. Snipes also organizes social events for the people working at the shipyard. Hangar parties are held regularly to let the staff unwind to performances by jazz icons of the day like Ella Fitzgerald, he said. While these parties may not truly have the guest lists they advertise, Snipes uses them as an opportunity to provide historical information about

important figures of that time. When someone notable “visits” the Portsmouth Aeroshipbuilding Company, Snipes lets his viewers know who’s coming and what contributions they’ve made to history. Snipes’ focus on real-life African-

American history through his art is reflected in the unique social atmosphere that surrounds the aeroshipbuilding company. “They’re looking for experts, they’re looking for talent, they’re looking for the expertise, and it doesn’t

matter what color that person is,” Snipes said, describing the company’s hiring standards. In Snipes’ universe, the botched assassination attempt allowed Lincoln to oversee a more effective reconstruction era. As a result, the effects of the Jim Crow era on the American South were greatly diminished. Fast-forward to the 1940’s and you have a diverse working community, dedicated to bringing the best in gravitational displacement technology. “There are women and AfricanAmericans from that era who have done great things and I’d like to use this as an opportunity to put a spotlight on it,” Snipes said. Pictures from the Aeroshipbuilding Company consist mostly of digital painting over photography. Having been drawing and painting his whole life, Snipes said he likes to start with an open shot of a cloud-populated sky and manipulate the color and lighting. From there, he’ll bring the levitating vessels into view, layer-by layer in photoshop. The drawings of pilots, however, Snipes usually does by hand with a few digital enhancements. Some of the pilots he’s depicted were modeled after his daughters, he said. Snipes currently works in digital marketing, and while he left his hometown for his career about 20 years ago, Snipes said he tries to reconnect with the city when he can and makes it back to Portsmouth at least once a year for Thanksgiving. “In fact, if I do have the time, I’ll often drive downtown down High Street just to see how things have picked up and grown,” he says. Snipes recalled the time he spent down by the public library during his formative years in Portsmouth. “Before there was Google, that would be my Google,” Snipes says. “I would go and look up stuff, and imagine, and check out books and June 2019

really kinda’ help to brainstorm and get my imagination going with my artwork.” Recent developments in the city have given Snipes an optimistic outlook towards the future of Portsmouth. “From my perspective—from the outside and not living there anymore— there’s some potential for it to even beat its heyday,” Snipes says. “I’m feeling good about the way things are going.” The people of Portsmouth have taken notice of Snipes’ project and many have been eager to show their admiration, he said. “The maritime industry—the port of Virginia specifically—is investing a lot ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

within the local economy,” Snipes says. “I just started learning more about that because they just started following my artwork and my project,” he said. The Port of Virginia has been supportive of Snipes’ project, even asking for his collaboration on a few creative efforts of their own. In January, Snipes was invited to an event at the Children’s Museum of Virginia in Portsmouth to share his blend of imaginative and educational material. Snipes has also taken his work to the comic convention scene, showcasing the Portsmouth Aeroshipbuilding Company’s fleet this year and last at SC Comicon, one of the

larger conventions in South Carolina. Having attended most years since SC Comicon began in 2014, Snipes said he was good friends with the convention’s manager, Rob Young. Though Young had long encouraged Snipes to present his work at SC Comicon, he didn’t want to show up with something generic and so, Snipes waited until he felt he had something worth sharing. “This was my first time, at least for that type of comic and pop culture convention, bringing my own artwork there,” Snipes said. “I think it’s the right project and the right time to do it.” These days, Snipes pushes to expand the world of the Portsmouth Aeroshipbuilding Company and celebrate the men and women who worked there.

Solid Work Kiptopeke’s ships are a concrete reminder of times past. by Max Lonzanida

VIRGINIA PARKS; NATIONAL ARCHIVES

ill Dyas, former interpretive Park Ranger at Kiptopeke State Park, told me that the nine concrete ships just a stone’s throw from the park’s fishing pier make for some of the best pier fishing. During the summer months, anglers take to the pier with fishing rods rigged for bluefish, spot, croaker, summer flounder and other species. When I served as a park ranger at the Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge (part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service), I’d drive over to Kiptopeke after work to stake my own place at the pier, and around 5:30pm, a plethora of croakers and spot would wreak havoc on the bait to make some memorable fishing. But during the colder months, when the anglers and beach goers are gone, the nine sunken ships looming in the distance have an ominous and almost ghostly appearance. It’s akin to visiting one of the US Navy’s reserve fleets, where ships of yesteryear wait unattended for the scrapper’s torch or the next conflict to call them back to service. In the case of the nine ships sunken offshore at Kiptopeke, their story is worth telling.

JUN 19 TOB.indd 22

At the height of WWII, the U.S. Maritime Commission awarded Pennsylvania businessman Matthew H. McCloskey, Jr. $37 million in contracts to design and build 24 concrete ships. The wartime shortages of steel made for some innovative approaches to ship construction, using metal rebar and mesh with concrete to fabricate the ships. The ships; SS William Foster Cowham, John Grant, Robert Whitman Lesley, Richard Kidder Meade, Willard A. Pollard, Willis A. Slater, Arthur Newell Talbot, Edward Thatcher and Leonard Chase Wason were named after concrete industry pioneers. McCloskey opened a shipyard in Tampa where the temperatures were right for producing these ships. Starting in July 1943, McCloskey’s company churned out nearly one ship a month to join the war effort. They

6 Maryland & DC Locations were 366 feet long, had a beam of 54 feet, and their engines produced 1,300 horsepower via a single screw. This made for a dismal top speed of seven knots. They slowly transported ammunition, spare parts, and equipment during the war. Work aboard the ships was not glamorous for the crew of 48, and many of the ships saw service in the South Pacific. Two participated in the allied invasion of Normandy in June 1944. Another served as a training ship on the West Coast, and another collided with a concrete steamer and was laid up in Bermuda for repairs. By the end of WWII, they were all laid up in reserve. Their time in the reserve fleet was not long. In December 1948, nine of them were sunk off Kiptopeke to serve as an artificial breakwater for the ferry dock. Locals remember the scuttling of the ships, and many recount stories of walking the furnished decks and passageways. Some of the ferry boats that transported passengers and vehicles from Virginia Beach and Little Creek to Kiptopeke were also veterans—the M/V Northampton (former USS LST-63); M/V Old Point Comfort (USS LST-970) and M/V Virginia Beach (LST-510). Detailed scale models of these ferry boats are

on display the Cape Charles Museum and Welcome Center. Over time, these ships that aided in the war effort have slowly been reclaimed by the sea. Their superstructures, navigational equipment, ladders and fittings have all decayed or been scavenged over the years. Their decks, which hosted watch standers in the South Pacific, have been invaded by migrating birds, osprey nests, brown pelicans, and a plethora of gulls, which paint the decks white with their droppings. Moss and plants grow on others, and cracks in their hulls expose the insides of the cargo holds. The ships have signs warning kayakers and boaters to stay at least 50 feet away. From shore, visitors to the pier can look into the cavernous cracks with a good pair of binoculars or a spotting scope. For now, the ships rest silently just offshore, serving as habitat for birds and fish. h

eave the fancy wine pairing for other foods. When you’ve got a pile of steamed, seasoned Chesapeake Bay blue crabs in the middle of the table, you need two things: a roll of paper towels and a cold beer. Time was, Natty Boh would’ve been the go-to choice, but with the craft beer revolution in full swing across the region, there are a lot of great local beers to choose from. With an assist from our local purveyor (Mills Fine Wine & Spirits— thanks Jerry!) we rounded up a six-pack of the best breweries in the watershed and asked them which of their brews they recommended. Here’s what they said:

“We always recommend our IPA’s with crabs. Our main IPA is Nanticoke Nectar. The citrus notes you get from the hops we use cuts through the spices and cleanses your palate prepping you for the next bite. Insanely refreshing!”

“I can’t think of a better beer on earth for steamed crabs than our Dead Rise Old Bay Summer Ale. Dead Rise is brewed with Old Bay and is balanced by crisp lemon notes that perfectly compliment picking morning, noon and night.”

Chris Brohawn, Co-owner

Erin Weston, Senior Director of Communications

“Our Old Pro Gose is a tart, wheat beer brewed with salt and coriander. The salt and tart are perfectly paired with some Old Bay-covered crabs and the coriander’s lemony aroma and flavor help clear the spice from your tongue and get ready to crack the next one open.”

“I’d say our best options for steamed crabs would be our lighter in body and lower ABV beers— simply because you can drink several while not getting full or overindulging on alcohol while adequately cutting that slow creeping Old Bay spice burn.” Adam Davis, Head Brewer

“With just enough hop flavor to accentuate the Old Bay tingle but a crisp finish to wash away a buttery backfin, Safety Dance Pilsner is a perfect pairing for cracking crabs.” Porter Hardy, President

ave you seen round five-toed tracks on the beach, leading to a dune where sand and grasses are all torn up in a circle? A dog’s trail perhaps? No, they have only four toes, and their tracks are oval. A raccoon’s? No, their “fingers” are long and narrow. Look closely around the dune. Might there be a pile of small fish scales and bones somewhere in the circle? What kind of critter is this? Why does it act this way?

ChesapeakeBayMagazine.com

JUN 19 Ches Alm.indd 28

These subtle indicators are what wildlife biologists call “sign,” and they are easy to overlook. Half of getting tuned into the natural history of the Chesapeake simply comes from slowing down and looking around. Gradually, sign like the tracks and the fish bones bring the animal and its lifestyle into focus. The tracks belong to a river otter. These furbearers are well-distributed around the

Chesapeake and its river systems, including the Susquehanna, but at this time of year, they see more of us than we see of them. In warm weather, river otters are most active at dusk, night, and dawn. Thus, early morning beach walks are best for finding fresh tracks. These frequently show a pattern of bounding, in which the animal’s long, sinuous body undulates so that the hind paws come down just behind where the front paws landed as the animal springs forward for another bound. The tracks often lead to a spot where the otter stops to roll around on sand and grass to dry out a bit. Hence the messy-looking appearance of the area, which may also serve as a “spraint,” a biologist’s scientific euphemism for an otter’s latrine. The little piles of scales and bones constitute “scat,” or material that has made its way through the otter’s durable digestive tract. An otter’s coat consists of inchlong, stiff guard hairs and denser, shorter underfur with more than 300,000 hairs per square-inch. That furry wetsuit protects them in winter,

when drying out helps to preserve insulation, but it is less important now, with water temperatures headed to the mid-seventies and up. For the most part, river otters are social animals. Behavioral studies indicate that rolling around on grass and sand, urinating, and dropping scat serve to mark territories for family recognition and communication more than for defending an area. In early summer, family groups are generally made up of a female with new-born pups just beginning to get into the water and staying close to their den. The females keep mature males and the previous year’s young away from the pups till fall. Thus, tracks on the beaches and spraints tend to be made by bachelors who can range as far as thirty miles in a week, foraging to keep their high metabolisms primarily fueled with fish supplemented by

shellfish, crayfish and frogs. Their diets vary with seasonal abundance of different prey. What counts in the otter’s diet is getting the most nutrition with the least expenditure of energy, so they favor slow-moving meals such as killifish, sunfish, white perch, and spot

in the three- to six-inch range. At this time of year, they’ll also eat crabs, especially vulnerable softies and paper-shells (buckrams). They’ll eat small fish in the water, generally head-first, but they come onto the beach for larger prey. KKK

Since otters live primarily on fish, they must be impressively adapted to swimming underwater. They measure three to five feet in length and weigh 15 to 30 pounds, with females typically 25 to 30 percent smaller than males. Of that length, one-third is tail, a thickly muscled, tapered rudder. Their legs are short but powerful with webbed feet and claws. The flexibility that enables their bounding terrestrial gait is most useful in the water where the streamlined animals can swim as fast as seven miles per hour, dive as deep as 60 feet, stay underwater for four minutes and travel as far as a quartermile in one breath. Propulsion comes from whatever combination of paddling with feet and up-and-down body-and-tail movement meets the needs of the moment. At the surface, they remain mostly concealed, with only the tops of their flat heads

including nostrils, eyes, and ears, above the surface. When submerged, the otter’s ears and nostrils close to exclude water, and its extra, transparent eyelids cover its eyes. The lenses are geared for underwater vision, which makes them slightly nearsighted above water. The lungs and metabolism have adaptations that allow them to stay submerged longer than most other mammals. The forepaws are sensitive and flexible for feeling and manipulating prey. Look closely at a photograph of an otter’s face and you’ll notice a forest of whiskers around its mouth. These too aid in feeling out surroundings and prey underwater. The jaws are powerful, equipped with sharp canine teeth for killing prey and molars for crushing shells and bones. Otters in the wild live about eight years. Captive otters might live as long

as 25 years. They have few predators. Even the remaining Chesapeake commercial trappers take little interest in them, since they are hard to outwit and the price for their pelts is relatively low. The otter’s greater threat is the loss of habitat and prey from human shoreline disturbance and poor water quality. As with many other Bay creatures (including ourselves), improvements to the ecosystem benefit our still-very-wild river otters. Just coming across their sign on a June morning’s beach walk is an encouraging indication that we’re moving in the right direction.

Sportsman Masters 267 Boatbuilding must get into some peoples’ blood. by John Page Williams

They shipped their first model, a 22-foot, center-console fishing boat, in the Spring of 2012, and they have been growing ever since. Today, the line includes center consoles from 21 to 31 feet and bay boats from 20 to 27. Their construction meets both National Marine Manufacturer Association and American Boat and Yacht Council standards. Chesapeake Bay Magazine recently had a long talk with a former recreational marine equipment supply company executive who “crawled all over” several brands in this price range two years ago before settling on a Sportsman Tournament 234 bay boat for serious fishing and family outings. After 380 hours over two years, running between Morehead City and Ocracoke along the North Carolina coast, including fishing wrecks up to fifteen miles offshore, he loves his boat for both purposes, and he plans on keeping her a long

ommy Hancock and Dale Martin both helped found successful boat companies —SeaPro and Key West, respectively. Despite being competitors, they became good friends, hunting and fishing together. Both successfully sold out shortly after the turn of the century, but Sportsman they kept an eye on the Masters 267 industry. By 2011, they had seen enough development in new LOA: 26' 7" design processes, materials, Beam: 9' 2" and manufacturing systems to Draft: 15" (engine up) recognize an opportunity to Transom Deadrise: 16° build high-quality fishing and Weight: 4,300 lbs.

Thus, began Sportsman sportsmanboatsmfg.com Boats, a company built on long experience and a strong workforce in the boatbuilding hub of Summerville, South Carolina.

time. He described the boat as having “modern lines with traditional looks,” and he notes the careful thought that went into features like the design of the helm seats. For this review, we were delighted to have a chance to run Sportsman’s larger, Masters 267 bay boat at a Yamaha media event on the Tennessee River in northern Alabama. We came away impressed, even though the boat was not rigged the way we would have chosen. The event centered on Yamaha’s introduction of its massive new 425-horsepower XTO V-8 outboard, and our test boat had one on its transom. It’s an impressive powerplant, but for most people and waters, it’s overkill, with a top speed pushing 60 knots. As with my friend’s Tournament 234, Sportsman designed the 267 to run shallow but still handle open Bay and nearshore ocean waters. Its hull rides on a 16-degree running surface, which transitions in the forward third of the bottom to a sharp, wavecleaving forefoot with enough flare and buoyancy to rise to nasty inlet seas. Trim tabs, engine trim, a SeaStar jackplate, and the throttle allow the skipper to dial it into suit the sea conditions. My friend confirmed this, noting that his 234 “rides well in a short chop, adjusting speed as necessary for comfort and safety.” The configuration and self-bailing cockpit make both models plenty able for their intended duties, but such a high top-speed is

useless most of the time anywhere in the Chesapeake or coastal Carolina. Realistically, we’d power this boat with Yamaha’s highly-regarded and well-proven 300 V-6, which weighs 390 pounds less than the 425 (562 lbs. vs. 952 lbs.), balances the boat much better, and still tops out at 45 knots with a light load. There’s plenty of power in reserve for a wide range of family activities and a wide range of planing speeds, from the mid-teens to the low thirties, to fit conditions from slick calm to gnarly. The 300 also burns 10- to 15-percent less fuel at cruising speeds and costs $15,000 less than the big V-8. So, what is the Masters 267 fit for? It’s a big family and fishing boat. Consider the first category—lots of space to sit comfortably in an pair of upholstered, double seats in the stern deck, a pair of chairs at the helm that double as leaning posts, a cushioned double seat /cooler in front of the console, and a pair of cushioned lounge seats in a V-configuration in the bow deck with adjustable backs. (My friend agrees, noting that Sportsman’s in-house upholstery shop does excellent work, and the seats are comfortable for multiple passengers.) The console is large enough to offer an installed head and changing room, and Sportsman offers sunshades hung from the hardtop to shade the foredeck and the cockpit while at anchor or at a beach. The stern deck offers a swim platform with folding ladder to port, June 2019

converting the 267 into a comfortable island for day excursions. For towsports, a transom pylon is available. Cooler space on the Masters 267 is massive because the boat comes with four livewells bow to stern of 14, 21, 21, and 35 gallons that can carry ice, beverages, and fish or live bait. The gunwales offer horizontal storage for rods up to nine feet long, and the bow-deck sides hold up to five rods in secure, lockable storage. The aft edge of the hard-top and the back of the helm seat each hold four rods vertically. The helm seat holds a large tackle station below the holders. The bow and stern decks convert for casting by removing cushions and folding down seat backs. The bow-deck is prewired for a trolling motor, set up well enough that my friend installed his own, though Sportsman and its dealers are glad to take on that task. The company rigs integrated Garmin electronics

systems at the factory. The 267’s console face can accommodate a pair of 12-inch displays, mounted side-byside, with an integrated VHF overhead to port in the hardtop. The speakers for the JL Audio system also mount overhead in the hardtop. For lower Chesapeake cobia and red drum sight-casters, an upper helm station in the hardtop is available. Anybody who runs a boat in salt water for 200 engine hours per year (average recreational use is closer to 50) must pay attention to maintenance. One trademark of all Sportsman models is excellent bilge access under the seats in the stern deck. My friend notes appreciatively that all plumbing and wiring is well-organized and easy to reach, “even for large people.” He very much likes the friction hinges on his boat’s multiple hatches, which replace gas shocks. Problems have been minor—rust on several stainless

bolts holding the hinges and a little bit of bubbling in the powder coat around the hardtop’s bases. In both cases, Sportsman’s customer service has been personal and quick with follow-up. In sum, Sportsman offers highquality family and fishing boats at relatively reasonable prices. Hancock, Martin, and their boatbuilding crew are hitting their marks well on their second boatbuilding venture. According to the current company web site, base internet price for a Masters 267 with a 300-hp Yamaha is $105,800.  CBM Editor at Large and author John Page Williams is a licensed captain and Maryland fishing guide. He has been on staff at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as an educator, writer and senior naturalist, saving the Bay since 1973. In 2013, the State of Maryland proclaimed him an official Admiral of the Bay, something we knew all along.

In recent years, Chesapeake Bay oysters have regained their rightful place in the spectrum and on our tables—half-shelled, stewed, fried, chowdered, and Rockefellered. And then, there’s our native striped bass and white perch, and the coastal tuna, mahi-mahi, flounder, swordfish and so-on served anyway you can imagine.

docking & Dining by John Stefancik I

often think this is how my sister-in-law fell for my brother, getting to know him while we cruised around together on t he Severn River every chance we got. “You do this every week?” she asked. “Pretty much,” I said. We raced sailboats on Wednesday evenings, fished other days, and cruised out onto the Bay on t he big boat on w eekends. Most of the time, we took the center console skiff to a dockside restaurant for a n ice, sit-down meal or to pick-up sandwiches, ice cream or cocktail. That was 15 years ago. She’s been my sister-in-law for the better part of a decade.

I recall a s pecial birthday celebration when my wife and I g athered everyone together for a river cruise to Annapolis for lunch and cake. This is the kind of Chesapeake celebration that makes living here unique and special. Whenever out-of-town friends come to visit, we take them out to eat by boat for an “I’ll-remember-this-forever” hospitality event. The Bay is ringed with wonderful, waterside towns with crab houses, lunch counters, dock-bars, dives, fancy restaurants, microbrew pubs, and breakfast houses. Boating is easily the best way to get there, and you can even take your dog along. There’s something in the slightly salty Bay air and the adventure of a cruise that makes the food and drink better. If you need any reassurance about that, just ask the dog.

hen he first started working in the family spice factory, Don Ports was too young to remember what he actually did. “Probably more like getting in the way than actually working,” he says. But his memories from a few years later are clear. “I remember filling those yellow paper cans,” the President of J.O. Spice says. “You’d put the cans in a box, a big fill box, then pour the spice that way when you filled it. Then you’d take the box outside and shake the spice off it.” These were three-by-four foot crates with 48 one-pound cans of spice in them. Ports estimates they weighed 60 or 70 pounds. They were all filled, capped, and moved by hand, and that was fine back then: “It was extremely small. If we did like 10 cases a day. That was a lot.” This was the early 1980s, when Ports was 13 or 14. J.O. Spice is orders of magnitude larger today, thanks in large part to Ports, the founder’s grandson. Ports says J.O. Spice ships more than 3.5 million pounds of spice blends every year, mainly to thousands of crab houses up and down the east coast. That’s about five tons a day of a product that is typically dispensed by the teaspoon—but it’s still a small family-run operation.

“No one has job titles,” says Brittany Osborne, Don’s daughter, showing a reporter around the warehouse. “We’re like a family.” J.O. Spice is the Chesapeake’s other signature steamed crab flavor— the one you maybe haven’t heard of. When you’re crab-feasting with out-of-state guests, you’re probably thinking of Old Bay, which was founded in 1939 and family-operated until they sold out to McCormick around 1990. J.O. is not Old Bay, but its origin story is similar. And if you’re cracking crabs at a Chesapeake-area crab house, there’s a pretty good chance that’s J.O. Spice covering them. In 1945, James Ozzle Strigle and his wife, Dorothy, founded J.O. Spice on Pratt Street in Baltimore, having moved from Tangier Island. Strigle was a waterman who developed a seafood spice mix when he was working the Bay. “He saw the demand,” Ports says. “Obviously he had experience in the meat industry. So it was J.O. Spice and Cure Company. That’s still the federal, legal name when we file taxes.” Most meat (and a lot of fish) was salt cured back in the days before freezers became ubiquitous. The company moved to Gable Avenue, then Hollins Ferry Road in the late 1970s or early ‘80s, when Ports was a teenager. The shop moved again while Ports was in the service, to Hammonds Ferry Road. “We stayed there until ‘91. When my daughter was born,” he says. Then CSX, which owned the property, expanded, and J.O. Spice moved again to the complex at Old Georgetown Road in Halethorpe. “That was when food safety and the health department came around,” Ports says. Ports had recently been discharged from the Marines, and he had his eyes set on a career as a state trooper. But his grandmother, who was still running the company 45 years after cofounding it, brought him in to augment the family business. He says he discovered some of the workers were

“taking advantage.” Long lunches, that sort of thing. Aiming to get the operation more ship-shape, “I started writing things down on paper,” he says. A few personnel changes followed. New food safety regulations came as well. The company was mixing spices in the same room it

packed boxes. “We had dust,” he says. “A lot of dust.” The regulators told them to enclose the mixing room. So they did, and it was a lot of work. J.O. Spice was already big enough that moving required cranes and professional riggers, he says. At the same time came what Ports calls “the crab explosion.”

As the supply of Chesapeake Bay blue crabs waxed and then, mostly, waned, “they started trucking crabs up from Louisiana,” he says. “Back in the day it was just in season.” Suddenly, crab shacks were staying in business year-round and needed product—both piscine and condiment—to feed the region’s (and tourists’) growing appetite. “I was working 20 hours a day for three straight weeks that summer,” Ports says, over the phone from Naples, Florida, where he goes from January to the start of May each year these days.

forklifts. There are pallets of cardboard boxes ready to be assembled, brown craft paper to spread on tables ($55 a roll, Osborne says, marveling), and cartons of customized crab mallets. It’s quiet here in late March, but there is a dozen or more people working, stocking up for the coming rush. “When you come through in the summer this will be gone,” she says, gesturing to the one-ton bags of spice racked above us on huge steel shelves. The plant nearly doubled in size a few years ago when it broke through the wall at its present location, taking over a closet wholesaler’s 14,000 square feet. Shaun Dunbar, the warehouse manager, supervises a crew of three as they package a spice run. In a corner of the room a boom box blasts pop music under a nosmoking sign. A forklift beeps through carrying a heavy sack as the men stride around it. Osborne shows off the tape machine for sealing the boxes and the conveyor with rollers to move them along, assembly-line style. The spice boxes are lined with blue bags, chosen to contrast with the product on the occasional misfill. Clear bags could be lost; blue is visible. The blending machines’ huge hoppers line the walls of the adjacent sealed room, their maws, able to swallow a ton of salt, garlic, paprika, mustard, thyme and what-have-you, 20 feet or more above the smooth and hospital-clean concrete floor. There is a half-size mixer for smaller batches and, on the floor, two other mixers: one for even smaller runs and one for test batches. The small mixer is about the size of a six-year-old; the smallest one is maybe triple the size of a home KitchenAid stand mixer. “Everything is cleaned after every run,” Osborne says, pointing out various specialized cleaning dispensers and built in hoses jutting from the walls here and there throughout the property.

JUN 19 JO Spice.indd 50

For distribution, the spice blends go into plastic tubs with one-ton “supersack” liners. The crew puts a ton of a new spice mix at the top of one of the cranes, funneling it into another hopper with machinery that flows it into 50-pound boxes below, where workers set them on the rollers to convey through the metal detector, which beeps fiercely when a test stick is put through, but is otherwise silent. Besides J.O.’s own #1 and #2 blends, custom blends are its specialty. If you own a crab house and want to do your own seasoning, you work it out, give J.O. the recipe, they make a batch and you test and approve it, then they supply your spice to your place.

“People take ours and want it a little hotter, or more mustard in it,” Ports says. “They have a custom blend that I won’t sell to anyone else.” The company makes about 400 different custom blends. The recipes are printed but each production worker gets only one element so that no one in the warehouse knows the whole formula, Osborne says. This is necessary in part because crab houses do try to nick one another’s formulas. “Two or three times a summer,” says Ports, “someone from Crab House B calls and says he’s Crab House A and send me my stuff to this new address.” Having been in the business since he was a child, Ports can smell them

coming, and he does not fall for it. But there are those rare occasions when the wrong blend goes out to the wrong restaurant. “You got 20 different blends on the delivery truck and half are custom blends, sometimes the driver makes a mistake,” he acknowledges. “Harry calls and says he got two boxes of John’s spices.” Then it’s down to how well John and Harry get along. Sometimes it’s fine: Harry drives down to John’s place and they have a laugh. Sometimes it’s not, and Ports himself hops in a truck. “We try to maintain old fashioned customer service,” he says. J.O. makes more than spice blends. There are batter mixes too,

and a product called “Dumpster Cure” to deodorize trash receptacles, and then there’s a whole store filled with tchotchkes—mugs, glasses, caps, scarves, signs, and t-shirts. “We try to get as many Made-InAmerica products as we can,” Osborne says, pointing to some barn wood and metal signs leaning in a corner of her office. The man who makes them works out of a barn in upstate New York, she says, laser or water-jetting the metal letters and affixing them to old wood for that rustic look. Then there are the mallets. Crab mallets, custom laser-etched in-house with various corporate logos and personalized messages, have

become a substantial element of J.O.’s business, available at crab houses, curio and gift shops across the land and at the occasional, exceptionally tasteful, wedding reception. In a small room just off the 600-square-foot retail store, the mallets are racked in a jig in one of the company’s laser etching machines, engraving them for the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum. Looking like freezer cases in a corner store are five new, quiet, smooth machines vented to the outside wall, their styluses silently hovering over the work, which glows with a faint spark where the laser is etching it. “When the crabs are slow.

Along with McCormick, which was 50 years old when Old Bay was invented and now employs some 11,000 people, there’s Fuchs (formerly known as Baltimore Spice) which started in 1939 and now occupies a 21 acre campus in Hampstead and a factory in Grand Forks, North Dakota. fuchsna.com Fuchs’ website is full of phrases like “comprehensive ingredient portfolio of options and solutions” and “Fuchs-proprietary seasoning formulas speeds the custom product development process.” It has the feel of lab coats and wingtips, whereas J.O., employing 25, still has the feel of denim and work boots—and maybe a l ong-sleeved T-shirt adorned with a c artoon crab couple, one crab pouring spice on the other’s back while that one lovingly shakes spice on a French fry the first one is holding, above the caption: “J.O. Has It All Covered.”

looking for other stuff to keep people coming in. So, if you’re in Ocean City from out of state you can get something to remember the trip by,” Osborne says. The mallets were her mother, Ginger’s, idea and reportedly she had to sell it hard to the rest of the company’s board. Osborne pauses in the old entranceway to the complex, a 10- by 10-foot vestibule that used to be the company’s entire retail operation. There’s a break room with a fridge and coffee machine, and beyond that, a larger area where more workers are packaging smaller shipments: more laser etching; and men and women running those roller conveyors and taping boxes. Orders to the online store show up on a screen out here. “We usually ship same day,” she says proudly. But, during the busy season she doesn’t always get to it every day. Sometimes, she allows, it’s two days. In the warehouse the pallets of mallets are stacked 12 feet high. “These are for Conrad’s and Phillips,” Osborne says. J.O. Spice sold more than half a million of these last year. This kind of bulk wholesaling is a different business model than what McCormick does with Old Bay. Its pallets of

50-pound boxes on the loading dock instead of four-ounce cans on the grocer’s shelf, and it keeps J.O. under the public’s radar. Ports is fine with that. “We never, ever knock them,” he says of the giant spice conglomerate headquartered 20 miles away. “We used to buy raw materials from them.” Old Bay and J.O.#2 are “two different flavor profiles,” Ports says—although the differences are subtle to most palates (Old Bay gives a hint of clove, J.O.’s flaked salt adheres better to the crab). Conrad’s is a good example of a J.O. Spice customer, Ports says. “A good story you could do, something to think about in the future, you could do a story of what’s involved in running a top-notch crab house. A lot of people don’t understand. They just go and buy ‘em and eat ‘em. They think they’re eating Old Bay and they’re not.”  Edward Ericson Jr. has been a reporter for over 30 years; his work has appeared in many newspapers including the Baltimore City Paper, websites like The Atlantic Monthly’s Citylab, and magazines such as Harper’s and The Washington Monthly.

he slogan, “Land of Pleasant Living,” which so perfectly captures life on and around the Chesapeake Bay, started in the 1940s as a advertising tag for National Bohemian beer, but the origin of the slogan doesn’t make it any less apt. With a slew of state parks dotting the Chesapeake’s shores and the banks of the Bay’s tributaries, getting to, in, and on the water is easy. Here is a sampling of time-tested camping places where you can enjoy bayside or tributary camping from the estuary’s northern top to the mouth of the Bay. Most of these offer canoe, kayak and even paddleboard rentals if you don’t want to bring your own. So, get to one of these campsites and then out on the water to start living pleasantly.

SUSQUEHANNA STATE PARK

Havre de Grace, Md. dnr.maryland.gov eople generally associate Native American tribes with the western U.S., but as the name Chesapeake and its many tributaries, such as Susquehanna, Rappahannock, Potomac, and Patuxent remind us, the Bay watershed is rich with native history as well as colonial and pre-colonial history. Captain John Smith first explored the Susquehanna in 1608, and his assessment of the river remains applicable today: “Heaven and earth seemed never to have agreed better to frame a place for man’s... delightful habitation.” 18th-century buildings remain at today’s park, and the campground, open April to October, sits near the river and a mere six miles north of the Bay, where the Susquehanna, the second largest watershed in the eastern United States, pours about 19 million gallons of fresh water into the Chesapeake every minute. Accordingly, a major draw at Susquehanna State Park is fishing, especially in springtime during the annual herring and shad runs. But being such an expansive river, a spot is easy enough to snag. The park’s campground accommodates 69 sites in

Westmoreland is a nice and easy place for families, with a large pool, snack shacks, and plenty of lodging options. All of these amenities means that Westmoreland can get busy. The park’s website warns that, “There’s limited cell phone service in the park,” which sounds like another point in its favor. If you are trying to get away from it all and you’re tent camping and wishing to avoid RVs, choose campground loop C, which has 30 tent-only sites. Loops A (36 sites, plus camper cabins) and Loop B (51 sites) have some tent-only sites. The nicely appointed cabins are very

near the water and the sandy beaches, including Fossil Beach, an obviously good place to look for fossils and sharks’ teeth. There, you’ll see banks with trees and exposed roots hanging precariously, soon to be victims of the lapping Potomac, a river that is still quite wild and untamed in places. Westmoreland is a perfect place to be reminded of that.

f you should find yourself in the middle of a waterbird nesting island, be wary of kamikaze gulls. They will not think twice about smacking an unsuspecting biologist (or even a h appy-go-lucky wildlife journalist) in the back of the head. It’s not that they have a predisposition for aggression, they’re just guarding their territory. These nesting colonies overload the senses, and it’s not just the feeling of a b ird crashing into your cranium. Imagine being surrounded by hundreds, even thousands of birds, all flying in unison, while being aggressively serenaded by a cacophony of calls. Then there’s the smell. So pungent it permeates your nightmares. An odor of rotten fish and regurgitation that could make even the most benumbed olfactory nerve wish for a h ead cold. For biologists from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR), it’s just another day in the office.

Beginning in 1985, and every five years since, DNR biologists have taken colonial waterbird census surveys in the Chesapeake and Maryland coastal bays in order to monitor colonies of birds including herons, ibises, gulls, and terns that nest on the remote islands. Since the inception of these surveys, methodologies have changed and much has been learned about the birds’ population dynamics. New breeding species have arrived in the region. Recently, biologists have enlisted some robot help. Drones and birds do not typically mix well. When they are mentioned in the same sentence it is usually because an overzealous pilot harassed a nesting eagle or falcon. (There is an entire YouTube genre of the resulting takedowns). In the hands of responsible biologists, though, drones are an invaluable aid for collecting population data and providing photographs for numerous census applications. “We started using drones to survey colonies [in 2018] and preliminary results are very good,” says biologist Conor Higgins. “We want to test the ability of drones to capture high-resolution imagery that can be used for

Brown pelicans, once endangered by DDT, are relative newcomers to the Bay, but faring well.

determining colony size without disturbing the birds as much as a foot survey does.” “Methods morph over time,” explains Dave Brinker of the DNR’s Wildlife and Heritage Service. Previous surveys most often involved boots on the ground, where biologists could count birds on nests or by flight. However, for more sensitive species, biologists attempt to minimize any invasive procedures. Especially once the chicks hatch, because human foot traffic usually causes them to scatter and run, a disturbance that could cause them to be susceptible to predation from other birds, like gulls. “Drones are just as good as the human eye, if not more accurate,” adds Brinker, “We can now take the footage and count that way.” “It seems like the birds widely ignore the drone, with the exception of least terns, who are very territorial,” says Higgins. Least terns nest in barren, sandy areas, and there is no island like that in the bay. The best area in Maryland for the species is the north end of Assateague Island. However

they have adapted to nesting on rooftops which Brinker calls “islands of gravel in a sea of humanity.” Counting them on these rooftops is hard and you need sharp eyes. Biologists would count from the roof hatch, which is less intensive than walking on a hot roof during the summer. From that viewpoint though it is virtually impossible to see eggs, so the census was counted by observing behavior, as least terns “stick their tail up to keep their breast down to incubate eggs. That’s how we would count,” says Brinker. Regarding drones, he adds “It may not work as well with least terns because they react and they may perceive it as a predator.” One option they are currently discussing is painting the bottom of the drone to blend into the sky. While the use of drones is promising, counting birds by foot is still an integral part of census methodology. Here is where avian life far outnumbers the human visitors. Once I put on my waders, breathed in the scent of brackish water, and stepped foot onto these islands, it was as if I were transported back to the primeval past of the bay that barely clings on in today’s modern society.

Chesapeake is still present on these islands, though it does struggle. Sea level rise and erosion are the two biggest threats to these critical nesting areas. The loss of islands in the coastal bays has correlated with the decline in black skimmers and both common and royal terns. Many islands where colonies nested no longer exist, even some from the most revent survey. The decline of many of these species is a major concern, but it is not necessarily bad for conservation in other species, such as herring gulls. These gulls began nesting in the Bay in 1948 and can depress other species, such as terns, as they predate on their eggs. A possible culprit for the herring gull decline is an increasing population of great black-backed gulls, which are much larger and more aggressive, and appear to be displacing the herring gulls. Other species that are increasing in the Bay include great blue and little blue herons. Perhaps most interesting is the population increase amongst two relative newcomers to the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem—brown pelicans and double-crested cormorants. Both make up a good portion of surveyed colonial waterbirds in the Bay and are faring very well, though they only began nesting in the region recently. It’s a story of similarities and contrast: Pelicans came from the south, cormorants from the north; and both species recovered after the banning of the pesticide DDT. Pelicans are mostly enjoyed by people while cormorants are often considered pests, and they have become two of the most successful colonial breeders in the Chesapeake Bay. Brown pelicans were once listed as endangered as the population shrank due to lack of reproductive success stemming from DDT. When pelicans ate contaminated fish, the

4/30/19 9:40 AM


pesticide caused their egg shells to become too thin and they couldn’t survive incubation. Since the banning of DDT in 1972, the population has recovered very well. The first brown pelican nest recorded above the mouth of the Bay was in 1987, and since 1990 the numbers have grown steadily. Currently there are 2,000 to 3,000 nesting pairs in the mid-Atlantic and they nest no further north than the Chesapeake. So why did the pelicans expand their range this far north in the first place? After DDT was removed from the food system, their population recovered and expanded in the southeast and steadily began moving northward. Decades ago it would have been impossible for pelicans to nest this far north because they have a long nesting season—about 32 days. It then takes about nine weeks before the chicks can fly, a much longer rearing season than other colonial waterbirds in the census. Summers in the Bay were much shorter than in the balmy southeast and our islands were inadequate for breeding and chick rearing. As temperatures have risen the past few decades, the Bay, with its wealth of resources, became a breeding area to expand into. Some pelicans have even begun nesting here as early as mid April. The first recorded double-crested cormorant nest on the Bay was confirmed in 1990 on Poplar Island. Much like the pelicans, cormorants declined due to DDT and PCBs, which were banned in the US in 1979. The poisons caused brittle eggshells and deformities in chicks, but unlike their avian cousins, they faced much human persecution even before the use of these pesticides. In the past it was common for humans to go to nesting colonies and break cormorant eggs because of perceived competition with fisheries stock. This misconduct could not be legally

Remembering Jeni Parris Brady

J

eni arrived at Chesapeake Bay Magazine in the fall of 2012 with a c ouple of decades of media advertising sales in her wake. She was in-between gigs, and her oldest son was recovering from a serious car accident. She needed a place to land that offered flexibility, stability, and another chance to thrive. Thrive she did. She took over for our longest-serving advertising representative who was leaving after more than three decades with the magazine. Jeni’s personable demeanor and thorough sense of responsibility made the transition easy as she immediately endeared herself to her clients and took up the mantle of enhancing their marketing and branding. Great advertising salespeople are those who understand the essential goals and attributes of each client, especially the small businesses. Then they help shape advertising messages with effective photography, headlines and taglines to promote the clients’ offerings. Jeni did this so well. It seemed that each client was her only concern. In fact, she served more than 100. Jeni’s was reliably professional. Her clients and the magazine owners and staff knew they could trust and depend on her. She was always working. When not representing the magazine, our various publications, and our advertisers, she was the nexus of promotional information for the robust Annapolis music scene thorough her Naptown Music feeds. She was ubiquitous at local concerts, festivals, bars and restaurants where she live-streamed the shows and spread the fun. She was the first to leverage social media to support the artists and Chesapeake Bay Magazine advertisers. It seemed that she didn’t sleep very much. We worried about that. Jeni was instrumental in connecting Chesapeake Bay Magazine with the Fish for A Cure Tournament—raising support and awareness for cancer care at Anne Arundel Medical Center. We soon became a media sponsor and participants in the event. Then, she became quiet; not so visible, but still working. Weeks passed, and I received a text from her to say that she felt she should transition off of a ma jor account in order to be sure they were served better. That’s when we knew. She continued working from home right through the deadlines for this edition. Then she left us after a valiant struggle with a rare form of cancer. We will miss you forever, Jeni.

Chesapeake Flatties Summer flounder tips, tactics, tricks and locations. by Captain Chris D. Dollar

A

lthough rockfish grab most of the attention in my neck of the woods, the well-rounded angler would do well to carve out time this season to fish for summer flounder, also called “fluke.” This quality gamefish is more popular in the Virginia waters of the Chesapeake than in Maryland, and for good reason: There are more of them there, and they are bigger.

Summer flounder (pictured), which are most common in midAtlantic and southern waters, are left side up. Winter flounder, found in northern Atlantic waters, are right side up.

CBM

Springtime on the Flats Flounder fishing gets going in mid-to late spring in the coastal bays of Delmarva, a beautiful place for both them and us to hang out this time of year. When the bite is on, anglers tired of a long, windy winter, chomping at the bit to catch fish, will ply the waters that weave in and around the Atlantic’s back bays. Focus your efforts on areas where there’s a reliable exchange of cold water for relatively warmer water. These places attract bait fish, which attract flounder looking to get needed calories on board. Virginia’s Chincoteague and Wachapreague islands are two the more popular spots to target spring flounder, particularly in the guts, flats and channels. Since it’s been a cold spring, don’t be surprised if flounder fishing kicks into gear later than usual. Overall, flounder action in our region runs from April through November. The early flounder season is determined by water temperature since flounders are semi-endothermic, meaning the bigger the fish the colder the water it can actively feed in. In the spring, that can translate into fewer hits, but the keeper ratio is usually higher. Flounder pounders—the most committed flatfish fanatics—begin to seriously target flounder when the water temps hits the mid-50s mark, searching for that magic 60 degrees.

By the time summer rolls in, flounder are more abundant both on the seaside and in the Chesapeake. The game changes somewhat as fish take up station on structure as well as hover June 2019

over the flats. In Ocean City, spots worth fishing from summer into early fall include in front of Castaways Campground, natural bottom between “A” and “B” Buoys, and the East Channel into the Thorofare. When summer begins to wane, try the wrecks and reefs, such as the African Queen, a reef site that can produce keeper fluke as well as the occasional doormat. It’s an easy run, about 13 miles southwest of the Ocean City Inlet. In Virginia, the myriad reefs, wrecks and bridges can hold big flounder. Hotspots include the 3rd and 4th island of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, the Cell, Back River Reef, and the Cape Henry Wreck. Later in the year as waters cool, the action shifts to ocean structures that include the Triangle Reef, the Tower Reef, and the Brass Spike.

Tactics & Techniques Early in the season is a good time to slow troll. This is when an electric trolling motor earns its keep, especially when the tide goes slack, and the drift becomes too slow or even non-existent. Sans a trolling motor, you can also bump the main boat engine in and out of gear. Find the edges and ledges of the channels where there is a steep drop in depth. You’ll want to drag your bait on the bottom from shallower to deeper, occasionally “working the bait;” meaning lightly “pop” the rod tip to give fish-attracting action to your lure. Expert flounder anglers I’ve fished with insist that I resist the urge to set the hook on an initial bump. Flounder have small mouths, so they take in baits conveyor bait style, proportionally, rather than all at once, like other gamefish. This makes your

line feel heavier than the traditional hard strike you’d feel from a drum or striper. When you get a hit, rather than set the hook, drop the bait back to the fish by opening the bail on the spinning reel or thumbing the spool in free on a conventional reel. Patience is key—easier said than done for this angler. Give the fish time to swallow the whole enchilada. Once they do, close the bail, and set the hook. Hookup rates improve for those who can adhere to this discipline. Later in the season, fresh bait, especially from oily species like bluefish or mackerel, cut in similar patterns do well. Note: It’s legal to use the belly meat of a legally caught fish as long as you keep the head and tail intact. Around the Bay Bridge Tunnel, big doormat flounder are known to inhale live spot.

Killers, as well as finger mullet, shiners and squid also bring strikes. Drifting and jigging artificial baits can work, too. Gulp! and Z-Man come to mind. You can buy or build your own flicker rig using an egg or bullet sinker, a cork float to keep the bait off the bottom, a swivel connection to keep it from twisting, and small plastic beads and a spinner blade to create flounderattracting vibration. Tie-on a wide-gap, 1/0 to 4/0 Kahle or similar hook at the end. This rig works well when drifting live bait over reefs and rockpiles. Some Virginia charter captains and experts catch big flounder while anchored over structure by casting live spot or mullet up-current and letting the current carry the lively morsel over a patch of live bottom. They use a three-way swivel with a sinker on a 12- to 15-inch leader to one ring and a Kahle-style hook with a 36-inch leader to the other ring. I prefer to keep things pretty simple. I’ve borrowed from guides who regularly target flounder as well as sport anglers dialed into these fish to settle on what has worked for me. One of my favorites is a one- to two-ounce bucktail style jig. I like Specialized Baits’ Lil’ Jimy and Addiction Baits skirted bucktails. You can tip them with a large, live shiner or tapered, six-inch or shorter, strips of fresh squid. It’s a killer when fished right. I like my fast-action, seven-foot Mojo inshore, bait-caster rod for this pursuit. Other, perhaps more avid, flounder anglers go with with conventional style reels because it’s easier to control the line when you drop the lure back to the fish. I spool up with 30- or 40-pound PowerPro braided line and 25- to 30-pound fluorocarbon leader joined with a double uni knot. Fly-rodders can get in on the fun, too. Fishing from kayaks, stand-up paddle boards or wet wading the flats are stealthy ways to stalk flounder.

Flounder Flicker Rig

There are plenty of places to try this along Delmarva’s back bays and even some ocean-side flats. Cape Henlopen in Delaware fits that bill; it’s a good spot when the weather patterns have settled. Eight-weight outfits with sink-tip or intermediate sinking lines work best. Crab, shrimp and minnow fly patterns are the best choices.

What Happened to the Flounder in Maryland’s Chesapeake? By now you’ve probably figured out that your best shot at a keeper flounder is on the seaside or in in Virginia’s part of the Bay. In fact, landing a keeper flounder in Maryland is rare these days. So, where’d they go? There isn’t one definitive reason—perhaps salinity, a decrease in suitable habitat, a lack of prey have conspired to create a dearth of flatfish in Maryland’s part of the Bay. Nontheless, you still might be able to eke out a keeper flatfish in Maryland beginning in June. Try these traditional spots: The hard channel edges in Pocomoke and Tangier sounds; Cornfield Harbor near Point Lookout, and; the Chinese Muds-Hog Island area at the Patuxent River mouth. Also give it a shot at the Boys Camp and the five-legged buoy leading into the Potomac. Way up the Bay, try Eastern Bay just inside Kent Point among the crab pots or drifting the contours from Tilghman Point to Wades Point. Also, fish along the ledges of Thomas Point. It’s worth the chance to catch these surprisingly aggressive, fun, and tasty fish.

Pots and Pan-Pans Wherein the author learns something about emergencies without having one. story and photos by Capt. Jody Argo Schroath

T

his is the story of how I came to experience an onboard emergency without actually having to have one myself. The event taught me a few good lessons, which I will share with you, but not in a long-winded heavily didactic way, though if you don’t want to know you can just skip to the last paragraph.

Here’s the story: It was a beautiful, warm, and spotless February day in Florida, and I was steering Moment of Zen along the channel that parallels the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, when I noticed that the small cruiser coming along the intersecting channel had suddenly pulled off and stopped. Fishing maybe? (The ways of fishermen eternally elude me.) Not fishing. Great clouds of black smoke billowed from the aft deck area and, a few seconds later, a man climbed onto the forward deck with a small fire extinguisher in hand. He pulled the tab, then slowly, cautiously, walked toward the stern as

he sprayed in the direction of the smoke. The extinguisher was soon empty and he returned to the bow and stood watching the smoke. I had reached the intersecting channel by this time and slowed to a stop as I came near the boat. “Have you called the Coast Guard?” I called over to him. “No, would you do that?” he called back. So, I pulled Zen a bit past the smoking boat and picked up the mic. Uh-oh, I thought suddenly, is this a pan-pan, a sécurité or a mayday? Not mayday. The boat hadn’t blown up. I

opted for pan-pan. As an aside, I have always found pan-pan tricky to pronounce, because you don’t want to make it sound too French, which seems pretentious and too much like those things cheerleaders wave at football games. On the other hand, you don’t want it to sound like cookware either. I aimed for somewhere in between, which probably rendered it incomprehensible. Then I thought, “How do I put this?” I opted for: “This is the vessel Moment of Zen calling a pan-pan for a boat with smoke pouring out the back. We’re on the ICW channel, just, uh,

Though that was also why, as luck would have it, Zen’s Canine Security Chief Bindi and her enforcer companion, Sammy, were down below in the shade of the cabin and not up on deck trying to put out the fire by barking at it.

I then heeded Galahad’s advice and moved Zen farther up the channel, clear of the explosion zone, if there should be one. That done, I went below to explain the situation to the security chief and navigator trainee. On hearing what they took to be a pirate/terrorist/ anarchist on deck, they had naturally begun to bark and howl and demand his immediate surrender. After some close reasoning on my part, they grudgingly agreed to become intermittently quiet. I accepted the compromise and returned to the matter at hand. By this time, the Coast Guard had run out of questions, so the occupant turned to me and introduced himself. “Hi, I’m Bill,” he said. He dug out his card and handed it to me. “Hi, I’m Jody,” I said, and we shook hands. I couldn’t help feeling that this was slightly silly under the circumstances,

though I am admittedly ignorant of the procedure for taking on passengers from smoking boats. Maybe a handshake is the standard procedure. “I was taking the boat over to Salt Creek to get some work done for a friend,” he said, not a little ruefully. “The engine suddenly cut out, and then she started smoking. I didn’t want to lift up the door to the engine compartment.” “Gas?” I asked. “Yes,” he replied, “It could have been a disaster.” Bill said he had been trying to decide about jumping into the water when the knight on a jet ski had come along to solve the problem. “If I’d had my dog with me, we would have already been in the water” Bill told me a few weeks later when I bumped into him at a marina Tiki bar. Though now, we stood silently in the rising heat and watched thick black smoke continue to pour out of the stern of the abandoned boat. We could smell burning fiberglass and wires. I tried to calculate whether I had moved far enough away to avoid flying debris if the worst happened. A few minutes into this fruitless occupation, I spied the flashing blue light of the Coast Guard boat coming down the channel from the west. Before it got to us, it paused to flag down an eastbound trawler. The trawler slowed and began a wide sweep around us, staying well outside of the channel. It knew from potentially exploding boats too. Meanwhile, the Coast Guard vessel, pulled up next to Zen. This naturally sent Zen’s security team into a near frenzy of alarm. I could picture them wheeling out the canon, Sammy waiting for Bindi’s command before lighting it off. I quickly introduced Bill to the Coast Guard as the man to talk to and ducked below to renegotiate a cease-fire. Sammy surrendered quickly, but Bindi held out for another biscuit. “Really,” I thought to myself as I returned to the
