Cracking down on illegal crabbing. New rules are set to go into effect.
On the serene Potomac River, Rocky Rice’s crab-pot markers stretched for miles, an orange-dotted rope floating on water that sparkled like jewels under a bright summer sun.
Police say 52-year-old Dean Dixon of Harwood was found at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.
A watermen’s group has stopped participating in discussions on crab management with the group’s head saying members oppose proposals for a catch-share system.
It’s the count that sets the limits and, down the road, what you’ll be paying for that summer crab feed.
