Very true . We used to pick up a lot of trout doing the same thing in the same areas in the fall .:yes:Try the green holly area w/ bottom bouncing rigs and single boxer head bucktails char head 2 oz. ch hair and pearl 6" shads w/ red backs, 16 oz inline 20' leader. Then try Hog point drop off and the shoal drop off near the bridge. This can be very good if the wind won't let you out on the Bay. Go slooooowly and you must feel the sinker hitting the bottom every so many feet. Try for 25 to 45 foot contour, not so much 70'. You may have to experiment w/ weight depending upon your tackle. Hope this gets you started. This was the ticket 15 years ago. I know it will work if the fish are there( they used to be at these places ).
Mike,I used to fish upriver at the Chalk Point power plant all winter long and catch rock to 30 plus inches . The colder temps the better the fishing was . That meant the plant was generating more power so there was more warm water coming out of the discharge canal . In those days we used nothing but a 1/4 oz red headed round jighead trimmed with a 4" white mister twister grubtail . If the fish were there then , I don't see why they wouldn't be this winter as well . In those days they were also stocking plenty of hybrids , or "wipers" and they were always a possibility . I don't think they do that anymore .
