About Covid-19 for Boaters




Marylander's are reminded that the  governor’s Stay  at Home directive to reduce  COVID-19 transmission remains in place, and recreational fishing and boating are currently  prohibited.

Fishing for sustenance is allowed, which means  anglers must catch and keep any legal fish and should return home as quickly as  possible after doing so. Under those guidelines, trophy-sized  striped bass may be targeted in the Chesapeake Bay from May 1 through May 15  with a limit of one fish per person, with a 35-inch minimum size limit. 

All  conservation regulations for this season can be viewed  on the Maryland  Department of Natural Resources website.


Charter Boat Restrictions

Charter boats and commercial  fishermen, which are regulated as part of the food supply chain, can continue  operating but must abide by social distancing guidelines and may not have more  than 10 individuals (including captain and crew) on the vessel at any time.  Following U.S. Coast Guard guidelines, the department recommends charter boat  operators consider implementing additional safety protocols such as regular  disinfecting of surfaces and using personal protective equipment. 

Maryland Natural Resources Police will  be on patrol to assure these rules and guidelines are being followed.
