2 Charged With Rockfish Violations In Maryland

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Natural Resources Police say two commercial fishermen have been charged with striped bass violations.

Natural Resources Police say Dolan Lee Hurley, 67, of Cambridge has been charged with failing to tag striped bass within 200 yards of his net. Natural Resources Police say Hurley was charged after officers found 500 pounds of untagged striped bass onboard a commercial vessel more than 1,000 yards from the net.

The charges against Robert Hodge Newberry, 52, of Crumpton include possession of untagged and undersized striped bass. Natural Resources Police say Newberry was charged after the commercial fishing vessel Open Ticket was boarded Tuesday near Sharps Island.

An Aug. 17 trial date was scheduled for both in Dorchester County District Court.
