Maryland Angler's Log - Share Your Catch!
To post a report please email your name, hometown, photos, location information, and the content for your report to email@example.com. All information is optional, but encouraged.
Important Note: If anyone in your picture is under 18 years of age, we must have a photo release signed by a parent/guardian before we can post your picture. By sending any photos or art to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources you are giving DNR permission to use the image(s) online and in print. You are also giving DNR permission to distribute the photo for non-commercial purposes to other media, print, digital and television for their use. You are not giving up your copyright, but are allowing the photo(s) to be used for educational and news purposes. All Photos will be made available on Fisheries Service Flickr Page.
There will be a 2014 end-of-year random drawing from angler's participating in any of the Volunteer Angler Surveys. We encourage anglers to continue to report snakehead catches through the Inland Freshwater survey in addition to their Angler's Log submission. The information helps our biologists better understand the various species and water systems they utilize.
A new component of the Maryland Fishing Challenge includes invasive species reports submitted to the Angler's Log. Beginning during the 2013/2014 tournament, Angler's Log entries which include Blue Catfish, Northern Snakehead or Flathead Catfish, at any length in size, will be eligible for up to two prizes via a random drawing at the annual Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale. Fish must be kept and a photo showing the kept fish is mandatory. Multiple entries are allowed, but each fish can only be entered once. Remember, all invasive species must be dead to be entered and there is no catch and release category. Visit the Maryland fishing Challenge web site to read the complete set of rules.

Beautiful Day Near Podickery Point
Region: Upper Bay
Location: Podickery Point
When storms knocked out power to work Tuesday night, it was a summertime version of a snow day on Wednesday. Normally being in the trolling camp, we visited Bud at Fishbones Tackle in Pasadena for some tips. With his guidance, we left with frozen chum, Alewife and a plan. The fish turned on in the afternoon, and we had dinner. We were treated to a beautiful unexpected day on the water near Podickery Point.

Practicing Catches Some Nice Bass
Region: North Eastern
Location: Susquehanna and North East Rivers
Steven took the opportunity to fish with some locals and brought home some nice bass from the Susquehanna and North East Rivers. With some upcoming tournaments he takes casting seriously but still manages to use his skills to do demonstrations at the local Cabelas for fun.

Father's Day Fishing
On Father's Day my son and daughter tell me daddy we want to take you fishing. So we went out to Joppatowne and had a good day. We caught 9 catfish and 1 pumpkinseed. Another proud daddy moment when my daughter caught her first catfish a nice 24" and a pumpkinseed. My son pulled in another 18" catfish and I pulled in 3 catfish between 14" - 16" and 4 baby catfish between 8" - 11".

Fishing in the Chester River
Location: Chester River
I had a nice surprise with this nice 23 inch rock on the "fishin d lite" while catfishing north of Cliff City. Also observed loads of peanut bunker in bait balls boiling on surface.
