Cynoscion nebulosus

Weakfish

This ocean going fish enters the Bay during the spring and feeds upon the abundant bait fish that gather here.  There is only one record of a weakfish for King's Landing Park, an individual collected in the Fall of 1995.  While this was a very unusual catch, it is doubtful that this was the only individual that has traveled this far up the Patuxent, and we will be searching for this species, particularly during years of higher salinity levels.  In the Bay and the lower Patuxent River, the weakfish is a popular game fish among recreational anglers.
