Raising the reef

    The Perry Hall chapter of the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishermen's Association is perhaps best known for building a large reef in the Chesapeake Bay between Hart-Miller Island and Tolchester on the Eastern Shore.

    The reef eventually will cover more than 7 acres of bay bottom with scores of perforated concrete cones as habitat for fish and oysters.

    The holes are for the young fish to hide in, Zinner said. "Fish love to gather around rough objects, like pilings and reefs," he said. "Every fisherman knows that."

    Further, the anglers hope that the bay's struggling oysters will attach to the cones and grow.

    The reef was named the Memorial Stadium Reef because the "reef balls" (individual concrete cones) contain used rubble from the demolished stadium. A number of county elementary and middle schools build the cones, a process the club calls "doing a pour."
