With the close of Maryland tautog season just a couple of days away anglers have been taking full advantage of some fishable weather to try and get some tasty tautog fillets in the freezer. The last day for MD tautog season is this Friday, May 14th and the following day on May 15, Maryland sea bass season will open up. Tautog will come back into season on July 1, 2021 with a two fish per person limit. Sea bass can be kept at a minimum size of 12 1/2″ with a creel limit of 15 fish per person.
