"A good story and well read"
From Cap'n Larry Jarboe: One of the most common comments that CHESAPEAKE readers relate to me concern the fish pictures we feature in my articles about fishing. While most other writers of outdoor columns are content to hold up a fish or two, I strive for a cooler full, a full stringer, or a bucket full of fish for my effort. Many people ask how is it possible to catch so many fish in a morning or afternoon of fishing. My answer is simple. While most people focus on fishing, I concentrate on catching.
