    You may want to head about an hour to the east of you... to Sandy Point State Park in east Annapolis. You'll be fishing in the upper Chesapeake Bay... where many a fine striper has been pulled in from the shore, there (hint - bloodworms). You may also want to post your question in the Maryland forum as well. Also, if you were not aware, Maryland and Virginia have a reciprocal agreement in place for [at least] saltwater fishing. Your VA license is accepted in MD... and vice versa. Good luck with your fishing endeavors!

    Well the closest absolute place is probably Annapolis or St. Mary's County areas... I'd name a few places but for someone like you there are probably too many "sashimi eaters" there so I'm not going to bother... wouldn't want you to have to mingle with the likes of us.

    Technically, the closest is probably the occoquan. But I agree, SPSP is your best bet.

    The reciprocity of licenses extends to both coastal and Chesapeake Bay regions for MD and VA (not including any region under the Potomac River Fisheries Commission or jurisdiction falling under freshwater regulations).

    3rd or 4th Sandy Point, but they brag about 30 inch stripers so you shouldn't expect many big girls.

    I posted this same question last fall, we have been to SPSP for crabbing and had a great time. You might also want to head to the southern Potomac around the 301 bridge and South of there. I will be giving Westmoreland State Park a try this weekend it's about 2 hours from ffx co. Were at Belvoir. Good luck and if you find any mother places please let me know. Oh there is the western shore of the Chesapeake. Chesapeake beach, I heard they haVe a pier but never been there. Again let me know if you find anything and I will do the same.
