Neuman:

You’re right about the amount of folks that were there on Sunday. I saw most of the boaters up in the rocks where they thought the stripers would be. I have a 19-fiber glass walk through dual console style boat and it's a 1973. So there is no way I can make it up that far with causing some damage. Thanks for the update. I heard that on last Friday that everyone was catching them on live perch and this included fisherman for sure or on the boats.
:rolleyes: :D

I know the feeling... I fixed all the issues with my engine I think anyway. It's running well now and I can't wait to set the hook on some flounder..

Drifting mostly... When I use arts... I go with white twister tails; squids in many colors. Both baits are around 3 - 4 inches or so. As far as real bait goes. I use cut squid that I cut and soak in shedder crab oil {the clear stuff}. I only use minnows on the pier in Lewis, DE. I am going to use my cast net more this year and if I catch minnows or some other baitfish I will give them a try too. What do you use?:cool:

Are you fishing in the bay or ocean? Also could you recommend a place for me to try? I am searching for flounder, croakers, spots, king fish, ling, whiting, drum, speckle trout, weakies and tog. I can catch croakers, spot flounder and weakies in the Delaware Bay but good numbers and size to go along with it for me just doesn't happen. I am looking for places not far from Maryland boarded.:cool:

The hot spot link was okay but I need the stuff that only locals know about. I think I will grab a map and search for local bait in town close to the boarder... This may or may not be possible but I'll give it a go. Who knows? I may have to travel a little further south past the boarder then intended.... Thanks for the help...:cool:
