A compelling look at the fish that fascinated and frustrated anglers for more than century — the massive, yet elusive, silver-scaled tarpon. On April 18, 1885, fisherman William H. Wood reeled in a 93-pound tarpon off Florida's Sanibel Island with only a bamboo rod and mullet for bait. That single, sensational catch made international news, revolutionized sport fishing and transformed Southwest Florida forever. As word spread of Wood's feat, the promise of catching this trophy fish lured anglers from around the world, including Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover, writers Ernest Hemingway and Zane Grey, inventor Thomas Edison and celebrities such as Mae West. Rare, archival film clips of early tarpon anglers, vintage film from the 1930s, '40s and '50s and dramatic modern footage combine to highlight the story behind the birth of big-game fishing and the conservation efforts in place now to protect this ancient species. Peter Thomas (NOVA, Changing Seas)narrates.

CRUSHED IT! GO NAVY!
It’s been a while. Once we get into April our prime season and outdoor life-style fundraising events start and then it’s nonstop until after Boat Shows. Not a great excuse but it’s my story….
Lots to cover, so I’ll start with the events! Bands in the Sand in June was a beautiful night on the Chesapeake Bay Foundation beach, with over 1,600 attending and a record amount raised ($410,000). It was a bit lumpy for the boaters but the breeze made for a lovely evening on shore. The musical line-up was fantastic - Naptown Brass Band, Pressing Strings, Misspent Youth and of course, headliner Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Here are some pics that CBF sent to us.
Harry Legum and the Ewald Trio promises to bring a fantastic set.....lots of early rock and a smattering of deep cut Beatles.
Harry, an Annapolitan hometown favorite, jams with talented artist, Bryan Ewald, the star musician for famed PRS guitars. Holding down the bass and drums, Aidan and Julian Ewald add their mojo to create a musical showcase not to be missed! Join us at the Boatyard for an intimate and fun concert experience of rich talent and familiar tunes.
An easy day trip, Annapolis offers colorful possiblities for sightseeing, great food and water views. Internationally acclaimed as Best Sailors Bar, the Boatyard has been described as "....a nautical cheers" and falls under Washingtonian's Where to Catch a Buzz in this article. We also have the famous "All Killer, No Filler crab cakes and the freshest local seafood specials around. Come see us this summer!
Great going Chef George! (Of course, he was culinary trained and is a Batlimore native so he came up with his recipe there). We sold over 79,000 crab cakes last year, most right here in the restaurant but a good number also shipped nationwide, along with our crab soups and crab dip. Her's what the Baltimore Sun said about us "The six ounce orbs (don't call them patties) of jumbo lump crab bring patrons streaming, by land and sea, to Boatyard Bar & Grill...." (read full article here).
Opening Day for Maryland's beloved rockfish season is much anticipated by local anglers and so is the Annual Boatyard Bar & Grill Catch & Release Rockfish Tournament! Known for its fun and relaxed vibe, this annual Spring tournament returns for its 18th year on April 20, 2019.
As a charity event, not only are the anglers doing what they love, their participaton benefits the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Coastal Conservation Association Maryland and the Annapolis Police Department Youth Fishing Camp.
