    We’ve all sat around and debated which method of fishing works better, using bait or using lures. If you are have been on Tidal Fish for any period of time you’ll read the debate(s) on the fishing forums all the time. In fact, you’ll even read lure anglers debating which lures are better. Local Chesapeake Bay Author, Editor and Angler extraordinaire, Lenny Rudow, has set out to end the debate, not with a winning article about which is better, but with plain old proof with bait anglers fishing right along side lure anglers in his new fishing show, Got Bait?.

    Livelining has been very productive for rockfish at The Hill, Bloody Point, Podickory and the Triple Buoys. Johnny at Angler’s Fishing Center recommended the following locations for anglers looking to catch their own spot to use for rockfish bait: inside of Poplar Island, Tolly’s Point, and Thomas Point, among others. A bottom rig with small hooks tipped with a small piece of bloodworm or night crawler will work well on spot. Johnny said chummers continue to catch their share of stripers, while trollers have hooked up while pulling spoons with planers, or 6- to 12-ounce sinkers, in 20 to 25 feet of water off major points. White perch continue to prowl feeder creeks in the Severn and Magothy rivers, and ...

    Captain Ken Neill said that cobia fishing is very good. Fish are being caught by sight-casting and by setting up on chum slicks. The Cobia Cup was this past weekend. Capt. Jorj Head won it with a 60.9-pound fish. Jorj also won the Hampton Creek Cobia Tournament earlier this summer. Jorj catches most of his cobia sight fishing but he won both of these tournaments by chumming. Capt. Head will be fishing the Chesapeake Bay Cobia Classic this coming weekend.

    Livelining continues to come on strong as anglers are using live spot to catch plenty of rockfish at traditional locations including the Hill, Poplar Island, and around the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Anglers Fishing Center said chummers have scored with rockfish in 25 to 30 feet of water at Podickory and Hacketts. Croaker have been biting in 10 to 25 feet of water. White perch are schooled up in creeks and rivers and can be taken on spinners and other small lures and baits fished in the shallows.

However, he has also fished the shallows around the Eastern Shore islands and the structure on the Middle Grounds out of Point Lookout, where his anglers have hooked blues to ...
