petition to ban nets in the chesapeake

did you know there is a petition to ban pound nets in the chesapeake and its tidal tributaries? i did not, but i think it is a great idea. these gill nets are a navigational hazard and a lazy tool that does way more harm then good.

can not wait for trophy striper season?

i cannot wait for trophy striped bass season to begin this saturday in the chesapeake bay! apparently, nine other people really could not wait and got busted after surveillance by dnr while fishing in the choptank river, a designated striper spawning area. having been sited myself (in season), i feel for the fishermen and fisherwoman who were charged because the fines are hefty and the marine police dont play, so know the regulations (they are different for virginia and maryland) and respect the fish!
