From this..... http://mlis.state.md.us/2009rs/bills/sb/sb0164f.pdfWhere did you see the $5.00 fine??
[(b) In addition to any other penalty provided in this title, any person
convicted of violating any rule or regulation the Department adopts, shall be fined $5
for each fish illegally caught. If a person is convicted a second or subsequent time
within the same 12-month period for a violation of the rules and regulations the
Department adopts, he shall have his angler's license suspended for a period of 12
months from the date of the second or subsequent conviction.]
