I live in York pa and want to find somewhere closer than NJ to fish for striper from the shore. I also have a hobie kayak but want to start off fishing from the shore. Jersey is 3+ hours from me. I only go half a dozen times a year to New Jersey and surf fish which isn’t nearly enough. I’d like to keep the drive around 2 hours. Any feed back is appreciated.

IF you got a hobie, look at sheltered areas on the west side by dover.  Learn the shore and then learn the bay.   Cape May still is NJ, but tons of bay bays to explore on that hobie cat.   IF you like fishing party boats, they have that too.

 

Cape May also has 2 inlets, but one is closed from public though. 

 

Far as the 3hr ride, there's a few campsites there too.

 

I drive a little over 4hr from albany ny area to get there.  Always a good time.

As stated before below the Conowingo Dam but you can also fish from shore on the Port Deposit side as well by water pumping station.  Just be sure to have waders so you can get out to the area you want.

Turkey Point in North East, MD should be fairly close to you.  Closer than the beach at least.  Grew up fishing the rocks/points around there when I was younger.  I've seen some decent fish get pulled from there on blood worms and lures.  If anything else you should at least get a bite, maybe a catfish to keep you occupied.

Maryland is a tough place to fish considering most of the land is private. I would highly consider the Dam/Flats/Turkey Point. 

Hey Dann ready for the season to break loose?

 

I agree with this. York is 45 minutes further from the bay/shore than where I am and you’d really have to plan full day and overnight trips to be really successful with your time. Catching rocks without driving hours is a challenge and the dam/turkey point will be your easiest move. There are a couple points on both sides of the river not far below the dam where you can have success from the shore June 1st (open) to 3-4 weeks out. With the higher temps we are having that may close that window to about 2 weeks, so plan your time accordingly. Turkey point won’t be easy, but it’s doable. Havre de Grace near the train bridge may not be a bad option either, catching them on their move out during the same timeframe as near the dam. It gets deep there and depending on how you’re rigging you’ll probably snag some cats, but they move through there. Good luck!
