lots of guys in boats not getting into fish down there....
what time of year are you fishing? big fish come and go and it's not my neck of the woods but you'd be better served using live bait and or chunking pogie (bunker/menhadden) spot is another idea. big bait-big fish.. buy a net and learn how to throw it. if you've got a boat you can get live bait. fluorocarbon a must. a trolling motor is another great investment. lots more info in the delaware forum. click the SEARCH button above and key in whatever it is you want to ask. lots of info at the tip of your fingers. i don't live down there but i will help any way i can..

3 to 6 inch fish has to be a river where they spawn at, If not then a stocked impoundment. Elkton - Im guessing your fishing the coves of the Elk River or the Chesapeake Bay.
(This is total speculation because I have no idea where Elkton is except on a map).
At any rate the larger fish migrate out and the schoolies stay until they reach maturity around 3 years old and 20 inches or so.
My advice is to go to the MD DNR site, go over the regulation pages and find out when the trophy season starts. It will also provide reports and give you a better idea of whats going on and when.

if you can get eels fine. if you can't then get eels...
don't rule out artificials along with your baits of choice be it bunker/herring etc. bass assasins/storm shads/bucktails will not always cull huge fish but whatever is there will not be hard to find with one of these. fish your bait and jig/swim some soft baits slow as you cover two angles. shrimp fly's dropped off a floating plug on a 3ft fluoro leader material and left to move in the current is another application. i don't have all the answers for you as i don't live there and have not fished it.
