ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources wants to know how many flounder recreational fishermen are catching in Maryland’s coastal bays.
The department is partnering with the Atlantic Coast Chapter of the Maryland Saltwater Sportsmen’s Association on a survey of the recreational flounder catch.
MSSA members will take to the water to distribute the survey to anglers. The surveys distributed in July and August will cover “Flounder Alley,” a popular flounder fishing area in the Isle of Wight and Sinepuxent Bays.
The survey results will be compared with estimates from the National Marine Fisheries Service.
