I have a question in reference to the flounder fishing in MD after Sept 13, 2009. I have read the regs and I have read the articles but what I don't know and need the answer to is if I leave port out of Ocean City and either go north to DE or south to VA am I allowed to bring the flounder I catch back with me without being fined? The other states have the flounder season remaining open and MD seems to be the only one concerned with closing for an early season. I understand it all, I don't agree with it, but like everything else, I will obey the law. It just doesn't state anything about fishing in other states and returning with said flounder. Can anyone assist me in the right answer on this?:dontknow:

For any out of season species:

The way I understand it, it's about possession, not fishing.

DNR has no way of knowing the fish was caught in another state.

Same deal with sanctuaries, don't even have bait in the box.

agreed....if you come back into VA make sure the flounder is at least 19"...
