From spring bluefish madness to melee of summer fish

Summer is in full swing! The weekends have been crowded but if you know how to fish the crowds you can do well. The easiest and best time is to fish when everyone else is still asleep. Predawn hours or after dark into predawn hours is a great time to look for striped bass in […]

Fish aren’t as dumb as you think: the less commotion the better

Well that is another Memorial Day weekend in the books, and it was eventful. Every holiday weekend is eventful but the first one always makes for some chaos. This was probably one of the busiest Memorial Day weekends we have ever seen in Sussex County, the beaches were packed, the parks were closing early full […]

Water temperature’s rising and so is the bluefish action

The weather is awesome. Well, it hasn’t rained in a few days so there is that. The pollen has been miserable. Check on your friends with allergies, we are not OK.

Fishing keeps getting better; food showing up for striped bass

First all-girl Cub Scout Pack forms in Delaware

MIDDLETOWN — They didn’t leave Girl Scouts really. It’s more a case of joining Cub Scouts. Both groups have great programs, but they’re different nonetheless. Some girls still do both. In February, Boy Scouts of America opened up membership for girls ages 11 to 17. Nine members comprise the first Del-Mar-Va Council-based all girls BSA […]

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 […]
