Outdoors: Spring fishing off to exciting start

The fishing is really going off this spring, much better than the last few years. Mostly because everything is starting early. We are seeing some fish that are way too early and one fish in particular that has yet to show up. Everyone wants to know where the big bluefish are, and many of us […]

Fishing keeps getting better; food showing up for striped bass

Fishing this spring has been getting better and better. Location and tide has been important in some cases, but for the most part if you get out and fish you will more than likely catch. There is always the possibility of the skunk, and that has also happened. It is called fishing not catching, right? […]

Short striped bass action is hot; pick a beach and do some fishing

Second spring has arrived followed by second winter, which only lasts a couple days but you have to love it. Nothing like old man winter trying to come back into the room yelling “and another thing!” The fish don’t care but the temperature drops do slow the bite down a bit as well as the […]

Spring has arrived and the fishing is picking up

Welcome to spring and it couldn’t have gotten here any sooner, now slow it down so we don’t have a quick summer. Fishing is picking up, the peeper frogs are working overtime in the field puddle ponds. Hope the eggs make it before the puddles dry up. The seasonal bait shops are all opening on […]

Osprey sightings a sure sign that spring is around the corner

You don’t have to listen too hard to hear the sounds of spring. The staccato of peepers in the woods and fields around my house is deafening at night, they are even amped up during the day. There is so much water everywhere I have peepers in places I didn’t think they would exist. Great […]

It’s still winter but fishing is starting to pick up

The winter doldrums are still in full effect, but the fishing is finally picking back up for this time of year. Granted it isn’t the beast mode of the bluefish and and almost nonexistent spring striped bass run, but it is still fun catching. At least the spring run of bass gives us better hope […]

Spring’s on the horizon: Point closing, park fees begin

A few signs of spring are here, some we like and some we do not. The first being the point closing on March First, but everyone knows that happens. Delaware state parks’ fees go into effect on March First as well, time to pay to play. Only if you want to drive your car into […]

Waiting for spring is hard but there’s some action out there

Is it second or third winter yet, first spring maybe? I have lost track. Wearing boots and flip-flops only days apart can really throw you off and just increases that cabin fever. If I rearrange my tackle one more time I am going to lose it. One thing that is a saving grace with the […]

Safety alert: Air may be warmer but the water isn’t

The snow melts and we get a nice reminder of spring, in February. It has been beautiful outside, but there is still ice on the water in some areas. The higher temperatures are allowing people to get outside and shake off a little of that winter cabin fever. If you are venturing on the water, […]

It’s cold but spring will be here before you know it

Is it just me or has this been the longest January ever? Cold days to colder days, now we have possible snow, heavy winds, and arctic temperatures. I just want to sit on a warm beach and fish. Boats heading out of Lewes, Indian River, and Ocean City still fishing are doing well on double […]
