Left my house at 7:30 am - friend that was to join me had to cancel. Driving along Rt 50 near Rowe blvd - had a white pick up cut me off. I watched as driver weaved through traffic on the bridge.

Had to laugh when saw truck pulled over near the wawa store - good going Md state trooper.

Got to ramp at 8 and launched - took few minutes to net some grass shrimp. Tide was high - out going current just starting. Ran out and found Spot in 18 feet - put about 10 in live well. Being alone and one Rock limit - decided to just try pilings.

Wind was from south - made it tricky to get Spot in right position. Missed first Rock but stuck second one - nice 24 incher. Looked at GPS - it was 9:15.

Moved into shallower water and used the grass shrimp on a 1/4 oz jig head. Threaded 3-5 on the hook and found Perch from 6 to 11 inches.

I kept the larger ones. Had a small 16 inch Rock take the jig - thought I had Moby Perch for minute.

Saw one of the Ever Green ships heading south - those things are huge.

Water was decent clarity and 74*. Fished until about 11:30 - ran in on flat water. At ramp - saw something shiny - it was a stainless steel skeg guard snapped off - OUCH. Got it out so no one would cut a tire on it.

Stopped on way home to fill boat up - lucky I can buy it on land. I feel for boaters that have to buy on water.

Democrats dont give a fig about the inflation they create or how it affects Americans. The ends justify the means so long as they can implement their wackjob new green deal which will grant more power to progressive/socialist politicians and bureaucrats.

Skip, good to hear about water quality.

The rest: I'm curious, what would you do to lower fuel prices right now? Relax regs? Oil companies are not currently taking full advantage of the leeway they already have to explore and drill, so why would further relaxation work? Provide more taxpayer-funded subsidies/incentives, or force them to produce more under the war production act? They can't find enough skilled workers to do more than they're already doing. Workers left the industry en masse during the last administration and got jobs elsewhere. Lift sanctions on Iran and Venezuela? Great idea and I've had a heated exchange with the current administration over their foot dragging on this. Iran an Venezuela are no worse than the Saudis, Libya, etc.....maybe better. It would probably drop the price of oil below $100/bbl within a week. But Republicans have already threatened to block that effort. Lift petrol-related sanction on Russia? See the answers to the last question. Make it easier to build refineries? Trump tried that. Bush tried that. Even Obama tried that. No oil company is interested. Refineries are super expensive, and the long term projection is for petrol use to continue to decline in the U.S. as are cars become more efficient or rely on non-petrol fuel. Speed less, use less fuel? You're joking, right? That's what Americans did in large numbers in 2007 and it caused prices to go down, but we're way too entitled today.

Lou - I like your lyrics quote. Years ago, when I was still in the work force, I was on a committee to help plan a large conference. One of the sessions was being organized by a guy whose last name was "Jester" and a guy named "Kidder". We had a lot of fun saying that the session was being planned by jesters and kidders. Fortunately, both guys were experienced and talented, and the event was successful.

Skip (and John)...almost forgot to share. SRA's water quality monitoring in the Severn is still showing really good quality except at the headwaters. Good dissolved oxygen at the bottom, really good early season SAV growth, too, and still a decent temperature stratification once you get below about 12-15 feet. So, it matches with what you're seeing out on the Bay. Hopefully this lasts a bit longer into the season.

You think lifting sanctions on leading sponsor of terror is going to fix something? There are no good options for foreign oil dependence only worse options. U.S. was net oil exporter under Trump. Now we beg countries that hate us to increase oil exports. Biden said he would declare war on fossil fuel industry and he did.

Once bitten, twice shy. When the whole let's squeeze oil out of shale in the US industry got ramped up, a lot of folks thought that was the answer, OPEC said, hold my beer, and increased production to the point where oil prices dropped below the cost required to sustain that US production, as soon as they killed that, they systematically decreased production. The artificially low prices we've mostly had since then were and are unsustainable, you know, the whole let's pay for homes with Monopoly money thing, followed by a series of economic hits nicely frosted with a global pandemic. The real price of gas during that period was mid $3 to $4, not the $2 something, and even $1 something we saw for a brief period not too long ago, and there is the whole corporations like making money, and right now the large oil companies are not going to make more money by more drilling and pumping, particularly with the economic uncertainty we have on the horizon. To think the president, any president, and or the Congress can sprinkle some pixy dust on Wawa pumps and make the prices magically go down is just ignorant.

The flag is the symbol for the institutions with the idiots in them though. We've already had the ARs aren't going to work in a cival (sic) war discussion...

Cant fix stupid with pixy dust I agree. Destroying an economy is much easier than rebuilding it and ramping up domestic production wont happen overnight. Change starts in November.

I actually do think they would work but organization of the owners of said weapons to act as a unified militia is the downfall.

Disclaimer: I am not a military strategist nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express so the above is in all likelihood horse hokey

Real simple for the Demos, They figure the more they can give away, the more votes they can get and the more votes they can get means the more they stay in power!
