I Got To Go Fishing!

25 November 2011
William Saunders, who is a local charter boat captain here at the marina invited me out rockfish fishing the day after Thanksgiving. Since Gwyn and I think rockfish is the best fish we have ever eaten it was a no brain-er. We had great weather and actually got into some birds ( rockfish like to attack bait-fish which draws the birds to feed on them) in the Rappahannock River not far from the marina but had to abandon this when we realized that we where in 2 feet of water.

We got out in the bay and joined a lot of other boats hoping to hook some rockfish as they were showing up all over the fish finder. We had 6 people on board and we were hoping everyone would land a fish. Sorry, that did not happen, but the good news is I was the only one to land a fish. This one is going to be our Christmas eve dinner - Moroccan Pesto Rockfish With Clam and Chorizo Sauce.

Gwyn and I where on our way to the farmers market in Port Royal when she spotted a bunch of birds in a small marsh park. We stopped and I grabbed my camera. OMG! This is a rookery for several species of water birds.

Went looking for the Ring-billed Gull I photographed last week that I now had found out is part of a study being conducted by Dr. Dan Clark in West Boylston, MA. Could not fing the fellow again but ran into a rare sight, and flock of Black Skimmer's. They do not usually flock together.

This natural wildlife preserve is a great place that would take several visits to see it all.
