Fish Rustlers Ride Again!

Fish Rustlers Ride Again!

Last Wednesday a posse of Maryland Natural Resources police found another illegal gill net off Kent Island. It was filled with 400 pounds of rockfish. Maryland authorities say they’ve rounded up 8,425 yards of illegal net and 12 tons of rustled rockfish this month. And February is a short month.

Police are hot on the trail of the varmints, but so far have failed to corral the criminals, so they’re bringing in the bounty hunters. The reward for information leading to a rockfish rustling arrest has been raised to $30,500.
