For all You Striper Fisherman!
Here in Maryland we have a fishing "contest" I guess you could call it. Everyone is able participate except commercial fisherman. Our department of natural resources has tagged and released a number of stripers in the Chesapeake Bay. If you catch one and turn them in you can receive a cash prize of up to $25,000. There are many tagged fish but only "Diamond Jim" is worth $25,000 the others are worth at least $500. The contest goes from the 1st of June until September 6th. For more info and all the rules you can go to the MD DNR web site. You can also find info on other contests and events on this site. If anyone has any questions about fishing in Maryland feel free leave a comment and ill respond as quick as possiable. Good luck our there.
