On the Cover... Cover of the Summer 2003 issue
Fishing opportunities abound in and along the 4,360 miles of tidal shoreline within Maryland’s portion of the Chesapeake Bay watershed– and that’s only half the story! Our freshwater streams and the neighboring Atlantic Ocean offer countless more. Whether you chose to go out on the Bay with friends aboard a charter boat or to indulge in a more solitary shoreline approach like the gentleman on our cover, summer is the ideal time to try your hand at catching some of the many species of fish that spend the season in our waters.
