striper fishing

when the striper fishing closes around mid may near the susquanna flates in Maryland are you still allowed to fish for other species of fish like catfish and perch

Yes!~

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I guess I was wondering how they know what you are fishing for because I use cut bait and chicken livers for catfish and stripers

Catch some small white perch( 4"-6") and "live line" them. I use size 7/0 or 8/0 Gamakatsu Octopus or other non-offset circle hook. Tie directly to line(no weight). Use lite tackle & worms with a size 8 hook to catch small white perch before stating to striper fish. They keep alive well in a flow-thru type bait bucket. I set 2 rods off back of anchored boat with with open face baitcasters(Calcutta CT400 & a Penn 965) with click on. When they hit let run freely 30' or more & then start reeling to set hook(don't pull).You see a lot of guys using this method. Also, sassy shads & other swim baits etc work but live lining seems to be the best consistent producer. Cut bait(herring, bunker etc.) also works if you can get away from the catfish.

I never fished for white perch in the Chesapeake, we always went to the tidal rivers in NJ. They are easy to catch, Blood worms are very good bait for them albeit a little salty to buy. You can break them in pieces so they last longer.
