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
