I'll probably be there at launch, and come back for lunch. What time is lunch 1pm?

Important, yes but everyone is healthy so cant complain. Thanks.
As a side note, went off the pier yesterday afternoon(Magothy - Hunters Harbor) during tide change to test my new 9' rod out and nothing! Tried topwater and bucktails. No picks, no rocks, even through an inline spinner for any little fish. Seems like they are further up the river right now. Good luck to everyone tomorrow and cant wait to hear how it goes.

**Launch time change**
New launch time will be at 8:00am. I will arrive at 6:30am to open the gate.
I am happy to announce the trip is still on! The winds will be fishable for the area. Here is the latest forecast for the area:
Today's warmth should help us out for tomorrow but after the recent cold snap, I'm not sure how active the fish will be.
If you're worried about the seas picking up in conjunction with the wind, don't be. The area is protected enough that normally the wind is the only thing I have to deal with. With that being said, if you're not comfortable with these wind speeds, please use YOUR best judgement on deciding whether to launch or not.
I am still planning on attending. I will target Rock fish. I have not fished the Severn before, are there any tips you can give for finding the fish there.
I would troll, following pier ends (25ft-100ft away from piers ends where the depth drops off averaging 15ft) and run your lures at different depths. Look for shoal ledges to troll along side of and hilly areas to troll over for fish stalking bait. Also, do not underestimate the occasional cross through the channel, run your lures deep, still at different depths. Lastly, jigging is always a good way of drawing the fish out of the depths. (for the ones that have sonar)
As for the tackle, any kind of jig head or bucktail jig, 1/2oz-1oz in weight, and any color will work (chartreuse and white have worked best for me). Hook any kind of 4"-6" paddletail, twistertail, stingertail, softplastic, etc., contrasting colors of jig head. It wouldn't hurt to keep a 1/2oz -3/4oz rat-l-trap, x-rap, or some kinda of rattling or chatter bait on board just incase you wanted to try something different (I have caught many stripers trolling hard plastic lures as well).
