Red Drum at Risk

25 01 2014

Recently, there was a motion made by the Maryland Sport Fisheries Advisory Commission to explore the possibility of allowing the harvest of one trophy red drum (greater than 27 inches) per angler. Personally, I am against any such regulation being enacted. The Chesapeake Bay has seen a tremendous resurgence in the red drum fishery in recent years and I believe this is a direct result of the current slot limit (18 to 27 inches) and the protection of the large drum. States from Maryland to Florida have similar limits.

If you would like to read more about the proposal, including reactions from Maryland DNR and CCA Maryland please click on the links below. The last link will take you to the SFAC website where you can voice your opinion to various SFAC members. An email to Chairman William Goldsborough would probably garner the most attention.
