May 2017 ChesMMAP Interactive Catch Maps

Now reporting the most recent ChesMMAP catch map. Our interactive map is now more comprehensive, including incidental catches of invertebrates and habitat encountered. The crew noted higher than usual catches of white and channel catfish in the upper reaches of the Bay. In addition, spot catches were higher than in recent years, and kingfish continue to rally.
