Choptank fishing pier located in Cambridge <acronym title="Maryland">MD</acronym> right on RT50. Open year round, Requires Chesapeake Saltwater Sportsman License. Good fishing and Crabbing from this pier. Well known for its catfish fishery.

The pier is the old RT 50 bridge and there are actually two piers, one on each side of the river. The pier on the western bank of the river is approximately twice the size of the pier on the eastern bank of the river. There is usually plenty of room on the piers and its a great place to take children to.

Fishing in the summer can yield croaker, white perch, spot and blues. Occasionally a monster black drum will be pulled from the bridge. There is a good striper bite that happens in the fall. *hint fish in the shadows of the lights*.

Rigs to use are top and bottom rigs with small hooks and bloodworms for panfish. Cut bait on medium sized hooks for bluefish and jigheads with various soft plastics work well for stripers. Peeler crab has been known to bring in the stripers as well as black drum. Squid is a popular choice of bait for almost any species as well.

Crabbing is best with collapsible traps with about 20 to 30 feet of line on them. Bait with regular crab baits such as chicken necks,bunker, and etc. Due to the height of the pier from the water, hand lining crabs isn't very productive.
