Apparently Fish and Game was too busy with dip netters to enforce the Middle River no bait Emergency Order.
Little word of advice folks...Large globs of eggs are visable from shore...and so are large shrimp. People were trying to "help" folks out and inform them...but most really didn't seem to care or left the area that they were spotted in. A few were thankful as they claimed to have no knowledge of the order.
Next weekend...I pack binoculars and start writing down boat numbers or my large camera lens and start taking pictures.
Read your regs folks, and keep up with the emergency orders. If you're gong to fish it...fish it right.
