For the chesapeake bay I would bring the following
1 - Rapala X-Rap or Bomber A around 6 inches - silver body w/ dark green back
2 - Soft plastic paddle tail - I like Storm Wildeye Shad 6" in pearl or bunker. an umbrella rig would work too.
3 - Clark Spoon
4 - Mann stretch 25 or similar for deeper water

Remember you are inshore. In general you don't need really big baits. Also stay away from the offshore baits - cedar plugs, tuna feathers... unless you plan on going offshore.

Are flashy lures designed to catch fish or anglers

Fish do act out of instinct and some of them do strike an are attracted to flash. Of course the same applies to anglers.

If you can use an example of the locally occurring bait, that usually works, I always prefer meat to lures, I imagine sardines & squid would work. Shiny bits of metal with hooks on them also work, I have seen a bit of beer can sliced up with some plastic bag strips attached with a hook on it catch well. Troll deeper on sunny days, shallower on cloudy days.

There's nothing more inventive than an angler who has run out of lures I lost some good (spare) stainless pipe when my crew ran out of lures and started a frenzy of making more.

Now that you mention it, I once had the occasion of flattening out some 1/2" copper tubing and attaching a hook on one end.
