I basically spent all my summers in the bay/on the bay from 2006-2011. Listened to many older generations tell me it was the oysters that filtered the bay, and it actually used to have visibility of 3-5 feet. After the Oysters got harvested there was nothing left to filter the water. Rockfish were blenty (Striper) and you could eat more than 1 without worry of "mercury".

Still remember the summer evenings watching thunderstorms roll into the bay from Point Lookout.
