I live about 3-4 blocks from the Marshy hope marina. I check the marina area almost every morning from shore. It is hit and miss at the marina. Mostly miss. I have caught a few crappie and bass, and one day some yellow perch. If you fished in a boat you would probably do good. I have seen a few bass boats fishing the river. IMHO fishing from shore in Federalsburg is not good enough for a long trip to fish. BUT, the fish should show up soon. Are you going to bring a boat? If your going to fish in your boat, yes go for it.Hey guys I'm heading back out tomorrow probably to the eastern shore. I'm thinking marshy hope. Any recommendations for me?
