Fishing with a Purpose on Memorial Stadium Reef
Region: Upper Bay
Location: Memorial Stadium Reef
I want to tell everyone about a great day on the water this past Monday! This Fall, the Fisheries Service and the Maryland Artificial Reef Committee partnered to sponsor a survey of Fishing Success on MARI sites. 15 volunteer fishermen are recording data on their fishing trips on Memorial Stadium Reef (a MARI site) and nearby Man O’ War shoals. I designed the survey and will be doing the analysis, but wanted to see the “real” side as well. Dave Zajano graciously took me with him this Monday to fish for White Perch. For those of you that know me, you know that I got a big thrill out of seeing how “my” data were collected, and Dave even let me write some numbers! Oh, and by the way, Dave uses a “clicker” to keep an accurate count of total fish caught – because he is regularly catching over 50 fish per hour! It was “Fish ON” the whole day!
