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. https://chesapeakebaymagazine.com/md...5r8amgS0XlsG6Y
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.
