 KENT ISLAND, Md. - A Prince George's County man faces illegal fishing charges after he was found fishing near the Kent Narrows Bridge in Queen Anne's County early Saturday morning, according to the Maryland Natural Resource Police.

Resource Police say around 6 a-m Saturday, they found 26-year-old Camilo Arturo Paez Herrera fishing near the bridge. Authorities say another man was also found sleeping in a car. Resource Police say they saw a clear plastic bag on the car floor filled with undersized striped bass and found another bag under the bridge containing more undersized fish, for a total of 32 undersized striped bass.

Herrera admitted to fishing since about 2 a.m., according to police.

Herrera received citations for fishing without a license, exceeding the daily creel limit, possessing undersized striped bass and fishing outside legal hours, police said Tuesday. He will be required to appear in Queen Anne District Court on the three fishing violations. As of Tuesday afternoon, the court date was not set.
