Rudow's Guide to Fishing the Chesapeake is the most comprehensive guide to angling on all of the Chesapeake's waters from main-stem Bay to tributaries and tidal creeks. Detailed charts show over 550 specific hotspots and 35 public shoreline fishing hotspots, plus 33 reliable public boat ramps.
Specific Bay sportfish and the most effective methods of catching them during each phase of the season are meticulously discussed on a fish-by-fish basis, as are both modern and traditional tackle and rigs.
Never before has a fishing guide tackled each aspect of angling the Chesapeake Bay so thoroughly. Topics are as varied as casting for spring trophy rock on the Susquehanna Flats, jigging for seatrout at the Bay Bridge, wire-lining for flounder at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, and ice fishing for perch in Port Deposit are all covered in depth. There are even sections on shoreline fishing for each area of the Chesapeake. If you want to boost your catch rate every time you fish the Bay, this book is the ticket.
