Joe has started running his bottom fishing night trips. Olympus is located about 12 miles north of Pt. Lookout and is a quality and friendly operation. Several P&Sers have enjoyed this boat over past few years. It's early in the season, but I'd like to give it a go. Since the drive is 100 miles each way from my house in Rockville, I'm looking for fellow fisherman to share the ride/gas as well as the possibility of some good fishing. Here are the particulars:

Boat location: Ridge MD, St. Mary's County
Boat hours: Depart dock 6pm, return midnight
Fish: Mostly croaker (too early for trout, though some blues may show)
Cost: $45, includes bait (usually squid and shrimp), tackle rental available for about $5. Feel free to bring other baits -- I'll have some herring.
Driving: Leave Rockville around 3:15pm, return around 2:15am
Food/Drinks/Ice: Bring your own
Weather: Beats me! I plan to go as long as no strong winds or heavy rain forecasted, and will call Olympus early Saturday afternoon to confirm conditions.

I can take 3 people plus myself in minivan, one slot may be taken (c-dog23 check your email). To join some fellow P&Sers on this boat trip, please reply to this post, or contact me via email (see my profile, this is fastest way to reach me).

Tight lines -- Foodfan :) :)

Unfortunately I am out of town...otherwise I would be there!

I may be able to make a trip the following weekend - my mother-in-law loves to fish (believe it or not). I could get some serious points if I took her!

Foodfan - thanks for making the effort to round up a bunch of P&S folks for the trip.

Let the rest of us know how you do....hopefully the fish are biting and the weather holds.

The results are in -- good company, pretty decent weather, but only so-so fishing. Went out with DaRealpk, c-dog23, and his wife. Olympus chummed for rockfish until dark, then switched to bottom fishing. Total catch was about a dozen croaker and a medium rock (about 20" as I recall), which was typical -- nobody on the boat had a good catch compared to recent years. According to captain and mates water temperature is much colder than normal in the Bay -- was 55 degrees after reaching about 60 a couple of weeks ago. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Fishing is expected to pick up when the water warms.

The highlight of the evening was DaRealpk and c-dog23 hooking the same croaker together. Never saw that before. Later,
DaRealpk did the same again with c-dog23's wife. Need to pull those fish in faster!

Am considering another trip in 3-5 weeks after water warms. Will post invitation on this board.
