“I want to share with you guys my biggest striped bass 45 inches 37 pounds. Caught off Sandy Point State Park on the Chesapeake Bay from the beach on April 21, 2016.”

They also conducted inspections of eight seafood markets and distributors. Officers logged more than 70 vessel and 100 dockside foot patrol hours.
