No Recreational Boating or Fishing in MD

I posted this in the General Fishing Forum but it applies here too. MD is not allowing any recreational boating or fishing unless it involves keeping fish for consumption. I went to Deer Creek on the lower Susquehanna today to shad fish and had a WCO tell me no shad fishing or catch and release striper fishing. Only fishing for food is allowed. This is kind of dumb because you can catch perch on shad darts and spoons so if you say you are perch fishing but those darn shad and stripers keep biting instead you should be legal. If you are planning on any surf fishing check in advance because many beaches in NJ are closed.

That is absolutely ridiculous!

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

there is no reason for it , unless they would congregate on the lake close together or on the boat ramp until the boats are in the water.

....or on large pontoon boats, yachts, sailboats etc carrying large groups of people. Guess easiest solution is what they did.

Yeah....MD has a lot of large yacht type boats/sail boats around Annapolis, Inner Harbor etc. Guess they could put size limitations etc but then things start to get complicated. Crazy times indeed!

use to work with a guy about 30 years ago , that had a boat down along the shore or the bay. every time a hurricane came up along the coast he would have to take a day off to go down and pull his boat out of the water.

My lil 16' Lund 4 passenger USCG capacity limit powered w/25 HP Zuke sure wouldn't pose a problem but it is what is is.

It is what it shouldn't be!

In comparison NJ is encouraging people to fish.
