The Maryland Department of Natural Resources has made a change to the minimum size for summer flounder starting April 1, 2017…..this will not be an April Fool’s joke.  In reaction to the recommendation by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Council the MD DNR has changed the minimum size for summer flounder from 16″ in 2016 to 17″ for 2017.  The season remains open currently and will remain open until December 31.  The new 17″ size limit will take effect on April 1.  See the public notice from Maryland DNR here…….Public Notice on Summer Flounder
