Maryland's Who's who!

Nice gut on that one. I think I'm going to hit up Widewater, Wednesday morning before I go to my son's Halloween parade. Going to try a double fluke rig, and yo-yo a Rat L trap.

I keep meaning to try the double fluke rig but never think of it when I am anywhere near a tackle shop to buy swivels.  

 

I am going to take advantage of the warm weather and hit either Centential or St Mary's Lake this morning.  I am still shaken from the sextuplet-skunking and I want to grind some lures on a riprap dam, which are one of my general confidence spots.

All you need is a little garlic butter, and some chopped fresh herbs...

Nice pictures.

Hello, I live in Cecil county and mostly fish private ponds, streams, and the upper bay and Conowingo now I have a bass boat. I am kinda new to the forums, not really. I mainly just look at what people have said and it usually gives me my answer to whatever I'm stressing over. My dad was saying to mes last week we could hook up with a guy he works with next year on a float trip on the Octorara creek where he supposedly caught some footballs on whopper ploppers and senkos. My dad said we would definitely go with him. Now, most of you guys seem west of Baltimore so sorry if this is a waste of your time. If not and you know the given stream, you know how I kinda find this hard to believe. Now, the Octorara is connected to arguably the best river in the mid-Atlantic for smallies, (the susky), and they could go up in there from the main river, but this isn't a small or big creek. Kinda mostly 3 feet deep in my experience and 45-65 feet across. Now I have only fished there once (in winter) so I guess I wouldn't know but if anyone has info, let me know. Thank you guys and tight lines (yes this is a essay, I already know)

Anyone here willing to give up a bank spot near Shepherdstown, WV?  

 

I am heading up there weekend after next with my wife and some friends and I should have some time to sneak in a little fishing.  I suspect the Potomac will be too high to wade, so that rules out driving down to Harper's Ferry.  My current plan is to drive across the bridge, park at Lock 38 and start walking north until I find a good spot.

I am almost positive I asked this last year but here I go again:

 

How are co-anglers assigned to boaters and how far before each event is everything locked down?

Most of the tournaments are a random draw.  For the 2-day tournaments, members are allowed to choose their assignments to make travel and lodging logistics easier...But you don't HAVE to pick, the TD will still pair everyone up if needed.  

 

The pairings are done 1 week before the tournament... For the 2-day tournaments many make arrangements well in advance, but the deadline to sign up and the "official" pairings are still 1 week prior.  

 

If you're signed up for a tournament and have to drop out, you get a 100% refund or credit for another one...Whatever you prefer.

Wow, 1 week is very reasonable.  I am self-employed and the last minute work I get tends to be the most lucrative so I hate making plans too far out to only then have to cancel.   I think I might give it a go this year, assuming I am in town on Jan 2. Thanks for the info.

Yes, the way it works is that the Saturday before the tournament (1 week out) is the payment and notification deadline and then the pairings are out the next day.  Even if you do have to cancel the week of the tournament it really not a big deal, it happens....The only time it would be an inconvenience is if it was a travel event and you had arrangements for lodging/travel/etc with your partner.

 

If you can make the January meeting great, but if not you can come to any other meeting also...FOBA is open year round.

Do you have enough boaters for new coanglers? I would not mind fishing a few of the tournaments.

Short answer is yes and we'd love to have you :).  (And anyone else)

 

Long answer is that we don't do a 1-for-1 admittance thing and we don't close membership to Co's even if they outnumber boaters.  Most years we're pretty balanced, but sometimes we might have a handful of extra Co's.  Our annual average is right around 25 boaters and 25 co's.   

 

The way we handle it is a priority system that is based on payment for each tournament...Co-angler priority is determined by the pay-date for the specific tournament, so the last guy to pay for that tournament is the first one out.  Seniority or anything else has no bearing, it's strictly by the date you pay.  A lot of Co's will just pay for the specific tournaments they want to do (or all of them) right in the beginning of the year to get it out of the way..It's a golden ticket to guarantee you're in.  If you have to pull out you get 100% of your entry back or you can just roll it over to another tournament - Either way you get it all back if you can't make it to a tournament.

 

It's typically not even an issue though, the boaters just fish more often on average...We usually have an open boat or two in at least half the tournaments every year.  IF there are actually more co's than boats for a tournament we use a waitlist and if anyone drops out the Co on the waitlist gets in (or if an extra boat comes in).  Black Hill is the most common venue we have to worry about waitlists since it's so close/convenient to most members and the fishing is generally good (it's also where we have the annual family picnic after the tournament).

 

Bottom line is that if you pay early, you'll be guaranteed to get in any tournament you want...Whether you've been a member for 2 days or 2 decades.  Might be overkill to pay early, but it doesn't hurt anything.
