Share Your Invasive Catch on the Maryland Invasive Angler's Log
Welcome to the Invasive Species' Angler's Log component of the Maryland Fishing Challenge! These entries must contain Blue Catfish, Northern Snakehead or Flathead Catfish. Beginning during the 2013/2014 tournament, Angler's Log entries which include any of the invasive species listed, at any length in size, will be eligible for a prize via random drawing at the annual Maryland Fishing Challenge Finale.
To be eligible the entry must include a clear photo of the fish and the fish must be killed by one of the following methods:
- The head is severed from the dorsal area in line with the pectoral fins completely through the spinal vertebrae; the head does not have to be detached from the fish.
- At least two gill arches are completely removed from the gill area.
- The fish has all of its internal organs removed.
Fish must be caught using legal recreational fishing methods. All legal recreational fishing methods and gear are allowed.
Multiple entries are allowed, but each fish can only be entered once. Visit the Maryland fishing Challenge web site to read the complete set of rules.
To post a report please email your name, hometown, photos, location information, and a description of your fishing trip to firstname.lastname@example.org. All information is optional, but encouraged.
