Every year my family takes a vacation to the shore...this year we are headed for O.C., Md.  I am thinking of giving it a go fishing from shore...Either Ocean side or bay side.

 

I have a Daiwa Coastal reel spooled up with 65 pound braid on an 8 foot heavy rod I use for large swim baits and muskie fishing so I have enough power to catch relatively large fish.  I also have a Daiwa Lexa 400 on a ln 8'6" muskie rod I could use.  This will be my very first time ever fishing Coastal/salt water so I have no idea what I am fishing for, how to approach it, what baits to use and what techniques I should be using.  So I have no idea what I am in for...hell I don't even know what fish I can touch or how to get them out of the water.  Like I said, I am totally green around the gills here.

 

If anyone has any advice on catching fish from shore and what baits to use it would be much appreciated. I am not looking to use any live bait and plan to go for an hour or two each morning or evening.

 

Thanks for any advice.

I actually bought a penn combo while I was there. Great price that day! Medium spinning rod and put 15# PP on it. I had a medium with me but the price was just right Haha. They hooked me up with some jig heads and some gulp that they heard were producing bay side.

Good advise. Good tackle shop. Depending on when you go, flounder, bluefish, striped bass, tog, and sea bass are the usual suspects, but you never know what might show up. I like 20 lb mono or 30 lb braid with a leader for that type of fishing.

funny,  a few years ago i went there and stayed in a little town near it called berlin. anyways at that time i hadn't  bass fish since i was a teen. I took my salt water stuff and i tossed in my 5 ft dock rod that i used for flounder/trout fishing. we stayed at this private community which had this man made pond. i didnt give it a thought till i saw a guy fishing there. so i decided to check it out and he said it was stocked and loaded with big bass. i immediately drove to the nearest walmart and picked up and spinner bait and some yum dinger. i looked on youtube on how to fish a worm since i really had no clue. i found a video explaining the wacky rigged senko.  next thing i knew i slamming which now i realized were 4+ lbs bass.  from that moment on ive been bass fishing ever since.

 

if youre near berlin md  and want to fresh water fish let me know i can point you to a great spot!

Yo! I will definitely hit you up and very interested! We head down a few times a year and I try to get to the water as much as possible and always looking for more areas there. We will be there toward the end of July if not sooner
