2012 Sept 23rd Fishing

Sunday September 23rd will be our on the bay fishing trip. We will meet at Patuxent Valley Middle School parking lot before 5:00 a.m. for a 5:00 departure. If you arrive at 5:02 you will have missed us by 2 minutes. We will fish on the Tenacious with Captain Jacob. We will fish out of the Happy Harbor marina in Deale. Boat will leave the dock at 6:00 a.m. and will return at 2:00 p.m. We will clean fish and return to the school at 3:45. Whoever is picking up the scout should be ready to receive a zip lock bag of fish that will leak. We have to limit the trip to 10 scouts so an early response helps. There is no cost to the scout. Lunch will be provided and bottled drinks will be provided. The only items a scout will be allowed to bring are alternate clothing and we will decide what that is when the date gets closer. The boat gets crowded when too much gear is brought. If your scout gets motion sickness do not send him. We will not return to shore early for any reason except life safety. If your scout is seasick he may think or wish he was going to die but we know he won’t and we will not return to shore because of it even if he begs. Let your scout know that we will primarily bottom fish for perch and spot. We may catch bluefish, croaker, or rockfish as well. The more effort your scout puts into researching – maybe on the internet – on how to catch these fish the better the chance for success. Scoutmaster Levy will be on this trip and the scouts should witness for the first time Mr. Levy actually catch a fish by himself – it really could happen – maybe. Please return the email if your scout is committed to going. Do not respond at a meeting as I will forget. If more than 10 scouts respond regrettably some will have to be turned down – nothing we can do about it so responding is not a guarantee of the scout attending. In about a week I will send out an email with a list of scouts that are going. www.fishtenacious.com
