Bowing to public sentiment, state fisheries managers have agreed to give coastal anglers a longer summer flounder season this year in return for making the minimum size of a "keeper" fish slightly bigger. Under emergency regulations proposed this week by the Department of Natural Resources, anglers on the coast and Chesapeake Bay will be allowed to fish from April 17 to Nov. 22 and keep three fish daily, with a minimum of 19 inches. The proposal was unanimously endorsed Monday night by the Sport Fish Advisory Commission.

One year after city officials pledged to reinvigorate Baltimore's police civilian review board, members say their work feels insignificant and they are still seeking more authority. The Police Department recently said it would ask the volunteer citizen panel to look at police-involved shootings and other major use-of-force cases. The reviews, however, would occur after the cases have been closed — a role that seems perfunctory, members say. "We want to know: What are we really going to do?"

Flounder fishing in Ocean City turned on last week. The winds were calm, and there was no rain for almost a week. The bay waters were clear, and the fish were biting.Flounder were hitting in the upper reaches of the bay near Route 90, in the channels running north of the Thorofare, in the Convention Hall Channel between Buoys 9 and 13, around the U.S. 50 bridge and in the bay behind Assateague. The usual flounder holes were producing on the high and the outgoing tides. Some anglers said the fish in the northern areas of the bay were hitting three to four hours after the tide had turned.

In a bit of good news for Maryland anglers, the federal government has declared the mid-Atlantic stock of summer flounder fully rebuilt after years of catch restrictions meant to curb overfishing. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's fisheries service reported to Congress Monday that a record six fish populations nationwide had been rebuilt last year to healthy levels.  Summer flounder is the only one in the mid-Atlantic. With those additions, the number of marine fish populations rebuilt in the past 11 years has grown to 27, NOAA said.

Ocean City flounder fishing, which has been fair to good all season, has gotten even better. The keeper to throw-back ratio is still small (one legal-sized flounder to every 10 flounder under the size limit of 13 inches), but there are more large flounder around for the patient angler.Flounder were caught in all areas of the bay, even as far north as the Route 90 bridge. Johnny Fato of Ocean City was fishing near the channel of the east span of the bridge when he caught 17 large Norfolk spot and one 2 1/4 -pound flounder.

A proposed change in commercial fishing regulations that could play an important role in the future of sports fishing for the troubled flounder will be aired 7 p.m. Wednesday at a hearing at the Sheraton Salisbury Inn in Salisbury.In an effort to spare young flounder, the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council proposes, coastwide, that once a vessel fishing 3 to 200 miles takes more than 500 pounds of flatties it must not fish trawl nets of more than 5.5-inch diamond, or 6-inch square mesh.

The flounder are back. After a couple of slower weeks of TTC flounder fishing in Ocean City, we are again seeing an increase in numbers. Jim Walters of Fenwick Island counted his catch last week at more than 150 fish. Out of this tremendous catch he was only able to keep about a dozen.Mr. Walters, along with many other boaters, has been doing well in the "flats" north of the Thorofare between buoys 10 and 16. Live minnows and a squid strip combination have been working well. Area fishermen are also doing equally well with frozen shiners.

Anglers hoping for a warm Easter weekend filled with fish-catching possibilities were disappointed. Though Good Friday was a beautiful day, the fog rolled in on Saturday and kept the water temperature down. A cool breeze from the northeast made a jacket mandatory for most on the water.Because of the weather, Ocean City flounder have been off to a slow start. Although many anglers venturing out on their own came up empty-handed, the bay party boat Tortuga out of Bahia Marina at 22nd Street caught some.

One of the bright spots in Navy's season-opening 14-7 victory over VMI on Saturday was the play of the starting attack. Sophomores Sam Jones and Tucker Hull and senior Taylor Reynolds combined for 12 goals and six assists. Jones, an Annapolis native and Severna Park graduate who was named Monday the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week, paced the offense with five goals and four assists, while Hull chipped in four goals and two assists. But while the attack took center stage, the starting midfield of senior Nikk Davis, junior Bryce Dabbs and sophomore Pat Durkin struggled.

Executive Chef Daniel Wecker reflects: This is one of my personal favorites because of the combination of the elegant, flaky flounder with the tartness of the sauce with the capers. I recommend a rice blend or creamy polenta as the starch and a garnish of chopped parsley. This dish pairs very nicely with Pouilly-Fuisse, White Burgundy, a rich, dry white wine. Sauteed Flounder Grenobloise Sauce Ingredients: - 3 cups of brown chicken stock - 1/3 cup roux (equal parts butter and flour cooked)

Oh well, it was nice to dream about having a first round bye and having home field advantage in the playoffs. The Ravens had a chance to deliver a Christmas present to the city of Baltimore Sunday night, and San Diego took it away. The Chargers didn't steal it. That would be an insult to their effort. The Chargers bullied the Ravens and took it. So with two games remaining, New England seems destined to secure home field advantage. They have home games remaining against Miami and Buffalo.

Ron Fritz, head of sports: See what happens when you run the ball? The Ravens ought to try it sometime. A week after a signature road victory in Pittsburgh, the Ravens turn in one of their worst, most-imbalanced performances of the year on offense against the 2-6 Seahawks. Credit the Ravens' defense for limiting the Seahawks to field goals or the score could have been much, much worse. Kevin Van Valkenburg, staff writer: It's really hard to take the Ravens seriously as a Super Bowl contender when they keep losing games like this.

As great as the Ravens' defense was Sunday night – and it was magnificent in a 34-17 rout of the New York Jets – it was the resourcefulness of quarterback Joe Flacco on third down that helped Baltimore land critical early blows in this bare-knuckle fight. Then it was Flacco's lapse into malaise in the second quarter that allowed the Jets to sneak back into the game. Flacco was masterful on third-and-long in the first quarter, converting three such plays that led to 10 points and a 17-7 Ravens lead.

Critics might say that the New York Jets have become prolific at running their mouths. Running the football hasn't been quite as easy for New York. Only seven other teams in the NFL have gained fewer yards on the ground than the Jets. That kind of production (or lack thereof) would seem to play into the hands of the Ravens defense, which ranks sixth against the rush. But outside linebacker Terrell Suggs cautioned against reading too much into New York's low numbers as the Ravens prepare to welcome the Jets to M&T Bank Stadium for a nationally-televised showdown Sunday night.

For much of this season, the Orioles met reasonable expectations by treading water around the .500 mark and sometimes playing very good baseball against some of the league's best teams. But they have been slowly sinking in the standings in June, and they reached a new low Thursday night against the Cardinals. The Orioles got smacked around again, losing, 9-6, as the Cardinals left Baltimore with a three-game sweep . The Orioles are now a season-high eight games below .500, and they trail the Yankees by a dozen games in the AL East.

We were expecting to learn who would be in the American Idol Top 10 last week – and also who would be on this summer's tour. But Idol has always been fond of the fakeout, and Thursday's results show was full of them. In what Ryan Seacrest promised would be a shocking result, Casey Abrams learned he'd gotten the lowest number of votes and would be out, unless the judges decided to use their single "save" of the season, which seemed like a longshot. Abrams was singing "I Don't Need No Doctor" when Randy Jackson interrupted him to tell him they were indeed saving him. Abrams got pale and visibly shaky, and viewers — especially those who knew he'd been hospitalized twice so far this season — had to be wondering whether he really did need a doctor.
