Pound nets are placed in the bay to catch shad, one of the great bay delicacies. Some of the larger fish are being tagged in order to determine their movements in an effort to increase their numbers. Nets are used to catch herring, rock and other varieties of fish, also. This picture was made near Point No Point on the Chesapeake Bay.
