Wow, thanks Dave.
I hadn't even thought about the chop being more severe than the Chesapeake, and certainly didn't think about the flies. I'm not looking at the D-Bay as a destination, but more as a passing-through point on the way to points North.
I'm trying to decide between staying close to shore and duck-in points vs. going south, popping out of the Chesapeake into the Atlantic, and running north along the coast. As you know, there are precious few places to duck in along the DelMarva Atlantic coast.
