That settles it. This spring I'm going. Thinking of camping and launching out of Elk Neck SP
Elk Neck is one of the better MD Parks as well, so that is a good choice.
Not sure how you go about it, but "live-lining" is the most fun way of fishing rocks that I have tried. My buddy who is also with the agency is a lifelong waterman. It is the only way he does it. We go out and catch small fist sized Spot, then live fish with them. Plus, you get double the time behind the reel. (Behind the rod or pole were leaving me too open).
Yeah, if you said you had more time on your pole I would have said something ;-)
Fishing out of a kayak has always limited my live bait abilities. If you use a bucket over the side, you have to pull it up every time you paddle up to a new drift. I'm looking into getting a small battery powered cooler/aerator that would just barely fit between my feet in the cockpit. (I refuse to paddle one of those sit on top bathtubs which can carry a truckload of stuff, but will give you a cardiac if you try to paddle more than 1 mile - I like to have the ability to paddle fast and far in pursuit of prey.) I'm also looking into using an anchor so I can cast/retrieve, although I have heard using an anchor with yaks can be dangerous.
