On March 14, officers charged a 57-year-old man with possession of striped bass during closed season, commercially possessing striped bass without a striped bass allocation card, failing to display tidal fish license on his vehicle while transporting seafood and failure to attend to his drift gillnet. Officers saw the suspect commercially fishing a drift gill net for white perch in the Rhode River.
