Anyone know where I can get live eels near Solomons? I've never LL'ed them before and would love to give it a try this fall.

Thanks.

you are not allowed to use eels in md for rock fish!!
Maryland 2008 fishing Guide say's

It shall be unlawful
5 For a person to use eels as bait while fishing with line and hook from Dec 16th through may 15th inclusive.

To me this say's no live eel's on the off season and catch and release like in the spring. This may be written wrong as fishing on the off season in unlawful anyway, but that is what it say's in the book. Can any body verify this?? I really don't know if they are legal or not

My understanding is that they're only illegal during C&R and Spring--due to the likelyhood of gut hooks. So, where do I get them?

Anglers on RT 50.. but that's a long way from Solomons. There's a bait shop in Leoanardtown I think.. can't recall the name.. Had one crawl out of my outdrive 2 weeks ago after an extended in water layup due to mechanical problems.. Freaked me out..
