Fisheries Service Launches Interactive State Record Timeline

Annapolis, Md. (June 28, 2011) — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Fisheries Service has created an online resource to assist anglers who dream of catching a record fish.

The State Records timeline tool allows anglers to scroll through lists of Maryland’s 90 fishing records and pinpoint the time and location of record-setting catches. Visitors to the site can also view photos of anglers with their record-setting fish.

“Two of the best bits of information in the hunt for a notable catch are the time and place that a record fish was previously caught,” said Marty Gary, assistant director of DNR’s Fisheries Service.

To get started, visit dnr.maryland.gov/fisheries/records/index.asp.

To access this and a wealth of additional fishing information on the go, visit the new DNR Fisheries mobile web page at dnr.maryland.gov/fisheries/mobile using an iPhone or Android device.
