    Post Anglers Open the New Year with Two State Fishing Records

    January 7, 2015

    Meanwhile, Lee Haile III of Towson was catching and releasing chain pickerel with his son and a friend in an unnamed Eastern Shore pond near Salisbury when the line came tight to what turned out to be an eight pounder.

    ...Haile weighed the fish at Clyde’s Sport Shop in Halethorpe and later obtained a certified weight at Conrad’s Crabs & Seafood Market in Parkville. Lockwood met Haile later near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to confirm the species. His new record superseded the previous seven-pound, four-ounce record set by Roy Molick Jr. in 1976.

    The current world record is nine pounds, four ounces caught in 1961 in Georgia.
