In the News: Women buying guns more than ever



Who’s in the news? Camo is the New Black is in the news!

CITNB co-founder Whitney had a great time at SHOT Show (and we’ll be posting more about that soon). In the meantime, you can read about it in the UT San Diego article, “Women buying guns more than ever.” Here’s a little teaser quote from Whitney:

— Maybe you’ve noticed, maybe you haven’t, but more and more women are getting into owning guns and hunting than at any time in this country’s history.

Just look at what’s out there right now if you want proof. Whitney Tawney is co-founder of Camo is the New Black. It’s an independent blog that is building a community among sportswomen and providing a platform for them to share their stories.

Recipe: Beer-Battered Fish Tacos with Cajun Slaw


Summertime for me means tacos and, in particular, fish tacos.  In the past, we have only grilled the fish but now I’ve discovered how to beer-batter and I’m not sure we’ll ever go back to grilling.  After testing with a few added taco components, we’ve settled on serving the battered-fish with a Cajun Slaw. Follow these easy directions for delicious…  And don’t forget to get fishing on the Bay.


For the beer-battered fish…

In medium size bowl, whisk together 1 1⁄2 tbsp. salt, 1 1⁄2 cups flour, cornstarch, beer, and egg to make a batter. 


Pour Canola oil into a 5-qt. Dutch oven to a depth of 2′; heat until a thermometer reads 375˚. Sprinkle fish with chili powder and salt. Put remaining flour on a plate. Dredge fish in flour; shake off excess.

In the News: Rockfish Trophy Season Is Here



Whether you call them rockfish or striped bass, this time of year on the Chesapeake Bay is when to get your trophies.  These fish are BIG – averaging from 20 to 40 pounds! And it’s only an hour drive for city dwellers of D.C. 

Rockfish trophy season runs from April 19 to May 15th for 2014.  Fish must be above 28 inches to keep and only one fish is per fisher – so good luck!  After May 16th, the rockfish size and limit changes to 18 inches or above and each fisher is able to keep two fish.

We look forward to another great 2014 fishing season on the Chesapeake Bay! Check out Whitney’s honker from last week (40 inches, 30 pounds!)  Now that’s a nice fish!

What to bring

-Tennis shoes (the boat can get slippery and you need to protect your toes!)
-Rain jacket
-Layers (the temperature can c...
