Blog posts about fishing in the Chesapeake Bay and/or its tributaries
A friend of mine and I tried to fish south of the hole in the wall (Gwynns Island) on Wednesday. It seemed that every inch of the shoreline was covered for five miles south with commercial gill netters to the point that is was difficult to navigate the shoreline. We managed to catch a few small fish, but it was a wonder that "any" fish could navigate around the endless line of nets. We wonder how long will the commercial gill net season last and who is in charge of regulating the use of the nets.

Give the lines still caught pull, but also enough time and slack and most will drop off the net, or pull off the net with a little encouragement. Rarely is the barb had time in engorge the twine itself. If your traveling WITH thee tide, it's the same , except that you hold it in reverse to steady your position

Rockfish like all resources are finite !!! What I am sick of is the turf wars over a limited resource----and jerks no matter what side of the question.
