Please be advised that any entities/organizations that are considering conducting a sportfishing tournament in Maryland that includes Striped Bass as an eligible species needs to first obtain authorization from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. The purpose of this process is to help DNR monitor fishing effort and characterize tournament catches of Striped Bass. As a condition of all tournament authorizations, tournament organizers are required to collect and return tournament data to MD DNR within 30 days after the tournament.

Striped Bass tournament organizers should submit their requests to Mr. Martin L. Gary by e mail: Please include name of the tournament, date(s), location of check ins, qualifying area, expected number of participants, and charity (if applicable).

The deadline for submitting 2013 striped bass tournament requests is 5 PM April 30, 2013. No new requests will be considered after April 30th.
