Water Temperatures Are Slowly Dropping
The water temperatures are holding nicely in the low seventies along the coast and Delaware Bay. The inland bays dropped a lot during the cool down we had from that front. One thing we don’t want to see is a fast water temperature drop. A slow drop, which is occurring now will keep the summer fish here and get the fall fish excited. We have the best of both worlds here in Delaware, because this time of year we can fish for a variety of species.
We have the crazy summer gulf stream fish and then the short bass will start schooling up. They already are schooling up in many areas around the inland bays. So there is action all over our waters right now you just have to decide what you want to catch. Bull red drum that just showed up at Assateague to pompano still in the surf.
Get your gear ready for the albies to show up in the surf, if they do like the last few years (in numbers). There are a lot of small bluefish, mullet, and bunker out there for them to eat. They should show up soon enough, if not already.
