In the good 'ol days it was just dad and me. We have the same name but everyone called dad 'Rich' and they called me Ricky. That worked well although I preferred Rick to Ricky. Dad seemed to be Rich all along and that was ok with him. Now things got a little complicated about 18 years ago when another Rick came along. My son is 'Rick' also although we tried calling him 'Ricky' but he didn't like that any more than I do. So the point of all this is that Rick could be just about anyone, but when it comes to fishin' Rick means me and the other two Ricks. Confused?

Rick is a genuine fish'n nut. One of the many benefits of being part of a Ricksom is that our collection of Fishing in Maryland Awards are all in the name -- Richard Holt. "Hmm! I wonder which Rick caught that 5 lb. 2 oz pickerel?"  My dad and I actually have a few of those award citations for which we haven't a clue who actually caught the fish! Must have been me. 8-) My son, Rick, started his collection of Award Citations this summer with a big White Perch he caught. Had it made out to Rick Holt III, sneaky little guy!

My favorite fishing is for Chain Pickerel in the tidewater of the upper Chesapeake. Click here for some pickerel fishing tips.

Fishin' Log Archive for 2005

Life has it's twists and turns and this particular year I did almost no fishing at all. I only recorded one trip and that was it! There were no other trips this year even ones not recorded. I actually went fishing only once in 2005! Wow!

Date: 05/13/2005
Time: 6 am - 1 pm
Location: Out of Solomons to the HI bouy area
Weather:  cloudy, 60*, a bit of a chop but no whitecaps
Water Temp/Cond:  Water temp was 59.5* and water was clean
Tide:  Falling tide mostly as the high was about 6 am.
Fish Caught:  8 striped bass, we kept our 3 fish limit of two 39" and a 34". Smallest fish today was the 34"

Believe it or not this was my first trip of the year. I fished with Virgil Poe and his brother Chuck aboard Lick-ad-Split. Great day on the water. We trolled a 9 line spread and had some pretty good action. At one point we had 3 fish on at the same time. That was fun! (I tried writing this report 3 times and lost it twice to the electric blinking off, I give up. Short report this time.)
