Bad weather keeping fishing quiet

The weather, whether you like it or not, is still bad. Some days are better than others. I do prefer to fish the overcast days but it would be nice to see the sun a little more often and maybe dry us out a bit. Deer are bedding down in my front yard, I kid […]

Afternoon bite much better in cooler water

Mother Nature never ceases to amaze — it is now April in June. What is up with this crazy weather? I have no idea, but the water temperatures are holding great levels. The cooling off is keeping the water temperatures below 70 degrees. The afternoon bite is much better. Usually this time of year the […]

Sea bass action has been great for charters

I stand corrected, you all weren’t kidding when you said the weather has been horrible in Delaware. Sunny hot Florida was fun, but it is good to be home. Despite the foggy overcast weather, which is actually a great time to fish. It is also nice to get a break from the heat. My grass […]

Bluefish action is picking up at Cape Henlopen fishing pier and beaches

One of the best parts about fish showing up late is you get to fish for them a little longer or so it seems. At least the rain is not as bad and we have Memorial Day weekend coming. OK, honestly I have no idea how the weather is in Delaware — I am in […]

Despite rough weather at beaches, fish still biting

Wacky weather, meteo tsunamis, and storm fronts are making for some rough fishing. I know one guy who had to beach his boat to avoid being blown across the Delaware Bay to New Jersey. Other than some heavy winds it wasn’t so bad and the fishing has been decent. Black Sea Bass season opened on […]

Striped bass catching is picking up

We saw a lot of short striped bass in the surf at the Chillaware Island Spring Surf Fishing Tournament, but not many keeper bass. Only one was landed on the beach at 3Rs. Not for lack of trying either, there was a buffet of food out there for any fish to dine on. Clams has […]

Fish are finally showing up as temperatures climb

Well it looks like Mother Nature kicked old man winter to the curb. The water temperatures are finally holding over 50 degrees and we have fish! It has been a long slow spring and the fish are about three weeks late. There have been random catches but nothing like it was this time last year. […]

From Jersey to Assateague fishing action is picking up

This weekend I wouldn’t say it went off, but people have been catching fish and this is just the fringes of the action to come. From Jersey to Assateague the action has picked up. First and foremost, trophy striped bass season didn’t start out so well for many anglers. The catches were low this year […]

Plenty of short striped bass at beaches, bays

Well it looks like we might get a break in the weather for the weekend. A lot to not much is happening in our waters. That all depends on what you like to catch. There are plenty of short striped bass up and down the Delaware Bay beaches, ocean beaches, and the inland bays. If […]

Weekend warmup should hopefully bring more fish

Well this winter just won’t let go! Last year was about the same except by now we were wrangling rats in the surf. Those are short striped bass for those not in the “know”. The bluefish were not far behind. Right now it is short striped bass in the tidal creeks, inland bays, and along […]
