    Default Does DNR watch FB

    I follow Fishing Maryland on FB, where I watch people post pics about the Rockfish that they caught for the day. The problem is the rock are in a cooler or the tailgate of their truck or a cutting board. Now correct me if I'm wrong but aren't stripers catch and release right now on the bay?? These people post about fishing the bay and the rock they catch. Sooo does DNR ever watch these sites?? Some people even post the LG Bass they catch. Those are catch and release also. Ok, I'm done venting.

    The only problem I could see about Dnr cracking down on stuff like that is if the photo had a time stamp on it.

    I was wondering the same thing? Glad someone else had the same thoughts.

    If you think DNR is not watching social media, you are kidding yourself.

    Fishing MD via FB is a wonderful place for a good laugh, and shop-talk, but some folks ignore the rules and regs, and its only a matter of time...

    I'm not sure how much DNR is watching, I bet they've got their hands full with all the large scale poaching events. I follow their page and they post recent arrests every now and then, which is satisfying to see, but at the same time, many repeat offenders. Clearly sentences are not strong enough.

    Up until March 1st it was legal to keep largemouth. Season is now C&R until June 15. Like the DNR says, if we see something call it in.

    If I'm reading the Maryland regs correctly, LMB are legal in tidal waters year round, but need to be 15 inches March 1 until June 15. See http://www.eregulations.com/maryland...ession-limits/. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I Agree that repeat offenders should get mandatory stiffer penalties including jail time...today there are repeat, repeat, repeat offenders getting ready to repeat offend some more...
