The big one got away again at Saturday's Maryland Fishing Challenge finale in Annapolis. For the eighth straight year since the contest was established, no anglers caught the special Diamond Jim striped bass worth a $25,000 prize. Though the $25,000 striped bass wasn't caught, it marks the second year in which the Jim Diamond prize money was split among those who caught a fish carrying the designated tag. Instead, the nine anglers who caught fish that were tagged in the popular Maryland Department of Natural Resources' contest took home nearly $2,800 each.
