Eels, Gotcha plugs, swim baits, bucktails with gulp minnow, etc.

Re: Fishing Route 50 Bridge In OC Maryland

There's a locally owned sporting goods store by the bridge, south and east of the bridge itself.
The guy is really helpful.
Across the street from MR Ducks bar.
Gotcha plugs are the go to lure.
6 or 6 1/2 or 7' light or medium action rod with 12 or 15# test.
I'd highly recommend a drop net, just in case.

I'd also recommend the inlet jetty, same set up.

Re: Fishing Route 50 Bridge In OC Maryland

This is what I do on the Choptank river, Im not sure how it will directly relate to 50 bridge at OC. But this is what i use. One 10-20lb rod with a two hook top/bottom rig with bloodworns as bait. I use this to catch bait(spot or perch), crokers or whatever eles might be around. Then on my second rod (15-30lb) I live line the spot or whatever small fish i am catching. Hope this helps or puts you in the right direction.

Plan to lose lots of gear.The inlet is an under water junk yard except for the main channel,that is where the draw bridge part is.I would try the north jetty.

Take 2nd street east to the pay to park lot at the start of the Board walk.The jetty runs along 2nd and extends out into the ocean.The main channel runs along this side of the inlet,it is just east of the bridge.I usally fish from my boat so I can't give much advise on bait or tackle.There are some head boats in the area that are not too pricey.
Don't forget your MD> salt water permit.

The north jetty is at the end of the board walk next to the big parking lot. Its the rocks that run out into the ocean along the inlet. The south jetty is directly across the inlet on the Assateague side the rocks that run out into the ocean on the south side of the inlet. Ya need a boat for the south jetty.

if you have access to a boat this is the ticket. anchor or tie off by a good rip and work the shadow line. you will catch.

Bahia Marina rents small boats -- 16' with 8 hp motors, I believe.
Also, I'd recommend using saltwater FishBites.
They look like bubble gum but work well for spot, croacker, black bass.
Fishing with Susie is the name of a weekly column in the free fishing magazine.
She always has good advice for first time fishermen to OC.
There are certain area of OC that do not require the MD saltwater license.
Check with any bait shop.
