Striper Fishing Machine - Ron Schaefer sure can find the spring stripers in the Chesapeake! He fishes a 2007 Express 305. "So far it's been a great pre-season. This photo was taken the day before the season opened, April 17th, so this fish went back into the Chesapeake Bay. We like to get them back in the water ASAP. We caught three fish that day in an hour and a half."
Jim Utterback and son, Scott, say it was a team effort to land this one--the biggest rockfish they've ever caught. The Utterbacks were fishing in the Chesapeake Bay near R2 Buoy aboard their 2007 Seafarer 226.
What a Day! - Glenn and Lesley Appleton's grandson, Jared, is just as happy with the bait as he is the quarry. He fell asleep atop the fish box on the family's Escape 209, "Get Reel", holding his prize.
Dave Lippemeir landed his first bluefin estimated at near 180 pounds aboard Mike Desmarais's Canyon 336, "Lucky Girl", at Stellwagon Bank, about 50 miles from Mike's home port of Portsmouth, NH.
Chris and Bret Bishop dive from the family's Express 305 to nab these cobia. The Bishops are from Jeanerette, LA, and are customers of Grady dealer Cypress Cove.
James Taylor of Brick, NJ, caught his 45-pound wahoo on an Express 265, and says his Grady is the "only outboard made that you can fight fish off the stern!"
Spot a Cutie! - Cliff and Debbie Ingram's granddaughter, Casey, age four, is pleased with the large spot she caught aboard the family's Seafarer 22.
Frank Masse, right, and buddies Moon and Rob linked up a sailfish rare to the northern waters of the Spencer Canyon, out of Somers Point, NJ. This was aboard FX's Bimini 306; he now owns an Express 330, "Tiburon".
Stephen Wann, right, and his son Peter, had a six sailfish day in January 2009 off Islamorada, FL, and averaged one-three daily on other trips in December-January. Their Express 330, "Wannderer", is docked in St. Michaels, MD, from April through year-end, then spends sailfish season in Florida.
Mary Gillman and husband, Mike, caught this 12.8-pound steelhead trout in Lake Erie. The Gillmans and their Voyager 258 summer in Michigan and winter in Florida.
Wildest Dream - Capt. T. J. Pekin earned 2008 Bay Captain of the Year with a total of 1098.60 points in Maryland Saltwater Sportfishermen's Association competition. Here's a photo of the captain, helmswoman and navigator Leona Pekin, and first mate Brian Lowery after a November foray out of Solomon's Island about the Pekin's Marlin 300.
George Lang caught an 81-lb. wahoo aboard Capt. Ron Cox's Marlin 300, "Hot Lick", out of Ocean City Fishing Center, MD. It was George's first offshore trip, and the wahoo was the largest caught in Maryland and Delaware for the 2008 season.
