Rest Easy Joe Morris

     It has been a sad day in the Delaware fishing community.  Joe Morris, owner of Lewes Harbor Marina passed the other day.  He will be sorely missed by friends and family.  Joe was one of a kind, there are so many great stories people have of growing up around the docks, hanging around the cleaning table, and just visiting the store.  I have so many of my own stories about just hanging around the shop and the fish cleaning table...

All Species Fishing Tournament Update

  The All Species Fishing Tournament  was started last year to coincide with our fish ID page.  We decided to set it up so that everyone had to catch at least one species from a list.  First person to fill the list wins.  This is an online contest, and has been rather fun to watch.  Participants have a weekly card they have to hold in a picture of the fish they catch and enter.  Creel sizes do not matter just the fish species....
