Police Board Fishing Vessel; 3 Men Cited OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) ―

A Dorchester County man has been charged for a second time in less than a week with illegal commercial fishing.

Natural Resources Police says they boarded the 80-foot trawler Mount Vernon after watching it drag a net Sunday about two miles from the Ocean City inlet. Police seized nearly 3 tons of striped bass. Those charged included Jack Colbourne, owner of Colbourne Seafood Inc. in Secretary.

Colbourne, 69, and two other men were cited for fishing between 6 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Monday, when fishing is off limits.

Colbourne had already been cited last week for exceeding his seasonal allocation for striped bass. Police say the catch was sold and the money is being held in escrow until the cases are settled.
