I am doing some spring shopping during the quarantine. Never used any plugs before.

 

I mostly fish out of the Chesapeake Bay area,  OCMD, and IRI. Will use 9" or 10" 6 mojo surf.

 

I already have these;

 

Bucktails

Jetty caster

Magdarter 5" bone

SP Minnow 6" bone

Kastmaster spoon

Got-cha plugs

 

I am thinking SP minnow Blue purple but What would you add to the list?

If you fish sunrise you definitely should grab a pencil popper and a bottle nose popper, I prefer the bottle nose in calmer conditions and the pencil in rougher water conditions and throw them right as the sun pops up over the horizon.

 

As far as plugs go I'd suggest the largest SP in Sandeel pattern as far as a beginner plug goes. You could throw a glider in there as well as they are pretty easy to use and understand. And of course the most effective thing in your bag other than bucktails would be soft plastics on jig heads to get down towards the bottom of the water column.

@Rangler Which general area of the Chesapeake will you be fishing?

 

I usually fish out of Point lookout, Metapeake, Romancoke and Sandy point. I would love to know if there is any other place to go
