    lets start by saying I've never been to one of these before so my questions mays seem simple... just a few.... so my plan is to take a bunk in one of the cabins. the first question is, is there a fridge in the cabin to keep bait cold or do i need to maintain a cooler in my truck for the bait? second question is my plan is to come up early friday morning. will the cabins be ready for check in early on friday or will i be forced to fish all day then check in? not that it bothers me to fish first just would like to get things into the cabin first and then launch if possible. i have only been on the east coast here for 3 months and haven't fished north of the Patuxent river so far so this will be an entirely new experience. i have no care to win the tournament however i would like to catch some fish so if you all have any basic set ups/rigs i should be using that would be awesome. down here in the slower lower i troll 1/2 ounce pro jigs and Yozuri jerk baits when casting. other than that, shrimp is my favorite bait for the croakers down here. thanks in advance for any and all info given up.

    Unfortunately, many of the cabins do not have fridges that I am aware of. The camp is not ready for us until Friday afternoon.
    You should have luck using similar lures, but you'd probably do better up here with blood worms for bait over shrimp, but nightcrawlers work too.

    thanks for the advice Shady. ice chest it is then. not that its a big deal to keep it in my truck or the cabin for that matter. i refuse to use bloodworms (in my opinion they cost way too much money for this west coast guy). if they produced huge fish all the time maybe but they haven't for me so i don't use em anymore. i will however take your advice and bring some nightcrawler as well. thanks again.

    I agree, the only benefit I've seen for blood worm vs nightcrawler is just that they hold up better on the hook. I can count on one hand the number of times I've bought blood worms...

    yup!!! I've used them 3 times and each time i was hoping i was fishing in the wrong location so i kept going to different water each of the three times. i also find that the nightcrawlers that are dyed green work better for the white perch down here than the regular nightcrawler. heres another question for the tourney.... is it even worth it to pack topwater lures? not sure how often there is a chance of bait balls and such or if working a walking bait works for the shorelines and such? I know back west in the Sacramento Delta the stripers love a huge spook walked very fast but haven't had luck doing it down south here

    If I need bloodworms, then I use the Gulp Fish Bites in Bloodworm flavor...yum...80% of the time for me they work just as good and stay on the hook better. They are 1/2 the price of real bloodworms and a pack can last you many trips. Shady is right about the bunk cabins, they are not normally ready until after 3pm. We are typically busy setting up the camp for the tournament. It should be fun. It has been a blast every year and it has group form 35 plus anglers to over a 100.

    We're at 69. Quite a bit below the last 2 years when we topped 100. Putting in the t-shirt order tomorrow.
