    Well, as some of you may know, or have saw me post/talk about it here and there, I have been interviewing with school districts (out of the Pittsburgh area) for the past few weeks. I got offered multiple positions in both MD and VA. It was a hard decision to make, but I made it official this past Friday that I will be the newest Technology Education teacher at Broadneck HS in Annapolis, MD (starting this August). The school is literally on the Bay and Broadneck is a very good highschool, both academically and athletically, not to mention they have a fishing club :wink:! I am extremely excited :big_smile:, but also kind of nervous :confused2:. I just figured I would let all of you know I am leaving the area, and also wondering what you guys can tell me about fishing on the Bay?

    If you don't read the above paragraph, at least read this. What type of fishing can be done on the Bay, or the surrounding Annapolis/Baltimore areas? Do you basically need a decent boat to fish the bay, or would something small work (maybe even just the inlets?), is bank fishing even an option?

    Anything fishing related is what I am really after, but words of advice, or other info on the area/re-locating/starting a new job/life in general/etc is also welcomed and appreciated! :big_smile: Thanks

    i fish the upper cheasapeake and i know that down by annapolis is awesome for stripers(alot better then the upper bay) plus i'm pretty sure there are some blue cats down close to that area too, your close to the potomac and that holds blue cats, good luck in your move and keep up posted :cool2: i'm sure there are alot of inlets and piers to fish and a small boat would be good as long as ya pick your days and make sure its calm, i'm sure you'll see what other people are doin down there and pick it up quick

    We'll I should have mentioned that I really am not leaving until August. So I have the rest of this summer to catch a 40lbr (soon as spawn ends :confused2:). And, like Tan, I will have summers off and will only be 4 hours away, I am sure I will make it back here to fish for the state record :wink:

    I wasnt referring to the "BIG" inlets, more like the small fingers that protrude into the land (or is it the other way around, who knows). They can't be any worse than the rivers here in Pittsburgh

    Congrats on landing a good job! Throw out whatever you learned in college, experience and what you learn on the job is most important. Be patient with the kids. It takes a special person to be a teacher!:wink: Anytime your job/kids get difficult, just think there is a light at the end of the tunnel! You never have to work on the weekends, you have every holiday off, and of course what all teacher look forward to.........SUMMER VACATION!:big_smile: If you can positively change the life of 1 kid per year, then you have done your job!~

    I have never fished in the Baltimore/Annapolis area, but I do know the Cheasapeake is known for its striped bass fishery. The Potomac is close by so that means the big blues are there! Baltimore is only 2.5 hours away from Philly, so if you ever need to get a flathead fix, you know who to call!:wink::big_smile:

    Get used to someone calling you Mr.:smile2:

    Yeah thats true, I forgot about the possibility of the informal meet if Tan comes out. Might hafta be somewhat of a going away party for Mike too. Hopefully once the spawn is over we can get together again Mike. You gotta bring the new boat up to my neck of the woods where I took Damien.

    I would be glad to tow it up anytime, there is a small :roll_eyes: dent in the front of it now. I wish to not speak of what happened, Damien can elaborate on that if he wishes... :angry::embarassed::big_smile:
