Re: Newbie here with a couple questions.....
Thanks for replying Capt. Unfortunately there are no bait shops around here at all. It's amazing. I went to a West Marine and asked them thinking they would have an idea..nothing. I know I could go out with jigs and some Storm shads, etc, but was thinking live bait would be a relaxing way to go with my stepson.
I know stripers come all the way up past DC believe it or not. These are the spawners. I walked the shoreline near me this weekend and the weeds/grass are really protecting the shoreline and I can't see it fish-able right now.
I'm hoping to find someone with real local (Alexandria) knowledge to provide some guidance. I guess there is always catfish! :)
