    I was a bit South of Poplar island and noticed something strange in the water about 300 yards away. It would have been about 1 mile West of Poplar. I got on the radio and let the Coast Guard know immediately. I actually saw them roll out of Herrijg Bay and head that way. Not sure if it was related.

    You noticed something "strange" in the water to the extent that you notified the Coast Guard yet you didn't check it out to see if you could render assistance?? I sure hope it wasn't a MOB!

    I was in a kayak. It would have taken me much longer to get there than the coast guard that I also had a visual on.

    No disrespect, but I shouldn't really have to explain myself.

    "Authorities found the body of former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend’s missing grandson in the Chesapeake Bay, two days after finding her daughter’s body.

    The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Police said they found 8-year-old Gideon Joseph Kennedy McKean’s body around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, about 2,000 feet away from where authorities found his mother, Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean, on Monday." Baltimore Sun

    RIP sad to hear of their passing. Every time I hear of someone missing in the Bay I'm reminded of how fragile life is, to respect the bay, and to always wear a life vest.

    Agreed that you should always wear a life vest especially when alone. In cold water all it does is make it easier to find your body if you are alone........ Gary
