Striped bass in Delaware waters few and far between so far

As slow as the fishing has been for this time of year one would think it is the dead of winter. By slow I mean we are not seeing the striped bass here yet and that is getting later each year. The fishing for other species has been great but most people just want to […]

Snow geese season now in full flight

DOVER — As temperatures begin to drop in early December, it’s a perennial Delawarean expectation to see hordes of snow geese descend on the peninsula. The state’s position on the Atlantic Flyway, large swaths of marshland refuge and farm fields plentiful with waste grain have created the perfect winter getaway for the birds that annually […]

Only dogfish, but Fall Fish Bowl tournament was a lot of fun

Well it is windy again, and we just got out of a wacky weather weekend. This is all good weather for striped bass. The water temperatures are dropping and at prime conditions. We just need the migratory striped bass to realize that and drop by the beach on their way south. Gannets have also been […]

Bass action is random as temperatures drop

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, hope you all have a great holiday and enjoy your weekend. The cold snap has gotten the bass moving even more and if you aren’t out there fishing, you will not catch. Action is good but random — we spent four hours Wednesday chasing the skunk, it happens. One day an area […]

Temperatures dropping but summer fish are still feeding

Someone apologize to Miss Summer, we miss her, she didn’t have to pack up and roll, she could have stuck around a bit longer! Apparently she took Mrs. Fall with her and left Old Man winter behind. Typical, wonder what he did now? The water temperatures are dropping steadily but at least slowly so the […]

Anglers are doing well in the surf

Hunters are digging this colder weather, the mosquitoes have been ruthless for the fall. The size of small hummingbirds and aggressive, drain a full grown adult in seconds. Hopefully this cold snap starts wiping them out. We are also hoping for some new fish action. Currently anglers are doing really well in the surf with […]

Weekend’s looking decent and fishing’s good in many areas

We are dodging a bit of a bullet with hurricane Michael, which is good news for all the War On The Shore surf fishing tournament participants. We are looking at a pretty decent weekend with fall-like temperatures. The fishing has been good in many areas. The surf has been producing a lot of summer snapper […]

Fall weather means it is time for fall fish

Fall like weather brings us memories of fall fishing. Hoping to see a fall run of striped bass this year, but we dream of that every year and for the most part we get to keep dreaming. One of these days the fish will hit the coastline like they used to, or not. The short […]

Fall fish getting excited

Fall-summer fun is in full swing. Cooler nights and hotter days, or cooler days and hotter nights, or hotter days and hotter nights. The struggle is real with fall weather but the water temperatures are leveling out nicely in the low 70s along the coast and the Delaware Bay. We still have plenty of summer […]

Storms stirred up waters but beach fishing is still OK

Back-to-back tropical storms, one of which was a hurricane first. The waters are stirred up but surprisingly clear. The drive on surf fishing beaches look good, they took a bit of a beating and flattened out but they will build back up. The point took a little bit of a beating but it is just […]
