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.

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...."

The Honorable John P. Barry presides over a delightful evening of lively Irish music and song, with highlights to include the infamous end-of-night conga line. Featuring the local Oyster Boys with Kevin Brooks, joined by talented guests Seamus Kennedy and Danny Costello and others.
It's Feb. and I haven’t written since Nov 1. Why? because it’s winter in Annapolis and after the regattas, fishing tournaments, Navy football games, boat shows, outdoor beach parties and the holidays, things slow down a lot. View from my house....does it look slow or what? Wait, not totally dead!!

Before Fin and the Sailer girls head off to school we got them to WRNR to do a radio ad. They have done so about 8 or 9 years now. Fin, Morgan and Lilly Sailer at the station. Of course Eastport Pirate Tom Weaver is the voice of the Boatyard and Tom with WRNR producer/DJ Rob do an amazing job.
The third of our big outdoor charity events was mid-August - the Boatyard CRAB Cup to benefit CRAB - Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating for those of all ages with disabilities including wounded warriors.
