It has been a while since I have been on this board. I would appreciate some suggestions about "hooking" up with a boat owner or two or a club to fish with. A little bit about myself. I am 65 and retired and a novice fisherman. I live in Washington DC. I have fished the Chesapeake many times but my partner has moved away. We fished from a 20 foot Ranger bay boat. I would be happy to split any expenses. I enjoy light tackle fishing rather than trolling. What I am looking for is a friendly partner who would not mind a friendly novice. I have a beer or two but not on the boat. Thanks Ron
