    Default Gill nets on the Great Wicomico

    A waterman has been setting and tending several gill nets just east of the Rt200 bridge over the last few days. Classic orange flag buoys on each end and 50-100yds of gill net suspended between. I watched from a distance as he and a helper hauled in the nets - looked like small fish were kept (spot? croaker?) with a few larger fish they tossed back (rock?). What species are they targeting?
