It’s rockfish season on the Chesapeake Bay!
This is the time of year you can catch, and actually keep, your striped bass. Up to two fish a day and as long as they’re not too small and only one can be larger than three-feet (but smaller than 45-inches). The rules are in the link in the tweet below. Rockfish season runs from June through December in the upper and middle Bay.

Fish must be caught in Maryland using a rod-and-reel, unless they’re invasive (snakefish, blue & flathead catfish). In that case, just catch and eat as many as you can.
