(Newser) – There's never been a better time to cast a fishing line into the Chesapeake Bay. You just might reel in a striped bass worth $10,000. The fish's name is Diamond Jim, and he's a prize in the Maryland Fishing Challenge, reports the Washington Post. The prize money increases and eventually hits $25,000 in August if Jim hasn't been caught. There are actually three "Jims" swimming around out there. Each is wearing a special tag, and if you catch one, do not remove it—or your fish will be worth zilch.
