Route 50 Bridge Fishing

Heading to OCMD this weekend to try my luck at fishing from the Rt 50 bridge for stripers, flounder and blues. Any tips will be helpful

Re: Route 50 Bridge Fishing

Be sure to get a saltwater license.
Fish the incoming or outgoing tides.
Sleep during slack tide.
Had very good luck on Fish Bites for sea bass and flounder although all were throwbacks.
Night time on the Bridge is very interesting.
Go up one night and watch.
Dont worry about a bridge net; most guys are willing to help and share.
Expect to lose lures/tackle between the snags and the skates. Just part of the game.
2 or 3 oz. jig heads and 6 or 8" soft bodies (white, red) work at night for stripers and blues.
