GRASONVILLE, MD. — Two men were charged on Sept. 12, 2015 by a Maryland Natural Resources Police officer with poaching 35 striped bass while fishing from a boat off Kent Narrows.

Alexis Gustavo Corrales Osorio, 24, of Alexandria, Va., and Elvis Jose Corrales Rodas, 35, of Alexandria, Va., were charged with fishing without a Chesapeake Bay sport fishing license, exceeding the daily limit, keeping undersized striped bass and possessing striped bass between midnight and 5 a.m.

The officer saw the two men fishing, asked to check their cooler and found the illegal catch.

Osorio and Rodas are scheduled to appear in Queen Anne’s District Court on Nov. 19. If found guilty of all charges, each man could be fined as much as $4,000.
