Has anyone fished this pier before??? How long does it take to get there. I read the DNR report and there is a guy who caught a 5lb sea trout off of this pier. The report says the trout are running good there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have fished this pier before with decent results. There are trout, blues and some stripers at night and flounder during the day. Most use small lures such as spec rigs and grubs tied in tandum for the night time and minnows and squid during the day. I think that the pier is right before the rt 50 bridge. You make a right onto shantytown road which should take you to shantytown village. There is a decent bait shop there where you buy your pass with a good staff that can help you out. I personally prefer fishing the rt 50 bridge itself as you can catch bigger fish but you will definitely need a drop net for the bridge. Hope this helps.
According to your profile, from Landover it should be roughly 120 miles and take you about 2 1/2 to 3 hours depending on how fast you go and traffic. Once you hit the choptank fishing pier, you're half way there.
As Anthony? said turn right before the bridge. Sorry, I worded that poorly.
Also, there is another pier just around the corner from shantytown. I saw lots of trout caught there when I fished there. Cross the bridge and head right towards the "amusement park". You will see a fishing pier with a big sign. I like to fish there. Try spec rigs for trout. Gotcha plugs into the lights work well also.
I believe that is the oceanic pier. Good place to fish from shore. You can catch a variety of fish there. Tautog and rockfish from the inlet, flounder and blues during the day, and more blues, trout and rockfish at night. The Pier is very close to the inlet so they catch some nice fish there.
