The Play Of The Week!!!!
Wild Striped Bass:
We are seeing beautiful "stripers" ( Morone saxatilis)
in the 5-8# range coming to us from the Maryland side of the Chesapeake. The Maryland State Fish is always a popular choice, and pricing has been coming down for the past few weeks. The Virginia season is set to open on January 15, though with a smaller seine net, so we do not expect to see the jumbo fish as in years past, or at least not as high a percentage of fish.
