I have not fished the Susq flats the last 10 years so does that eliminate the C & R spring season? Used to be great fly fishing.

Unbelievable that they can screw around and basically not announce the season until a couple days before it opens. As usual the rec guys get the screws again. Oh well I might get out soon.

Yep....guess 1 fish per person per day minimum size 19 inches is better than nuttin but not much. Will really hurt the striped bass recreational charters out of Rock Hall, Deale, Bloody Point etc.

Yea they caved to the commercial guys. If you fish on a charter you can keep 2 fish per person. Also same gill netting and commercial hook and line [email protected]#&^. They aren't taking a 50% plus cut like the rec guys.

Thanks for the update. That was a change. Also the captain and mate can't keep one.

Yeah, I was surprised on the change not allowing captain/mate to keep a fish. I've been following this pretty close as I have some friends that were thinking of chartering but now decided not to.
