Southern Maryland Best Buys


It "Pays" to fish in Maryland

It would be a hard decision to pass up fresh fish for the loot....

Diamond JimOn May 27, 2010 the Maryland Division of Natural Resources released 200 striped bass into the Chesapeake Bay and its many tributaries. What's so special about releasing 200 fish into a body of water as large as the Cheasapeake Bay? These striped bass were tagged, and could be worth a lot of money.

If caught, 199 of these fish are worth $500. These are the cheapies. "Diamond Jim," the special tagged bass, is worth a whopping $10,000, if caught during the month of June, 2010. How about that for a fish story?

If he escapes capture during June, 2010, the bounty jumps to $20,000 during July and finally $25,000 if he's caught in August. The contest officially ends on Labor Day, September 6, 2010.
