We launched Friday at 3:30pm and fished the outgoing tide. We caught 2 good fish between 6:00 and 7:00, 28' and 16'. We were approached by a MD Marine officer, who was looking for folks keeping illegal rockfish. We told him we were fishing for blues, but he didn't seem to believe us. He proceeded to inquire about our "cut bait", which consisted of shad. He told us he couldn't tell if they were hickory or gizzarrd because there were no heads. We assured him they were gizzards. Make sure you know how to describe the difference if your stopped.
