Late Summer Fish Are Early

One fish we normally don't see until mid to late august is pompano.  One was caught over the weekend at Fenwick Island.  It is strange to see these warmer water fish when the water temperatures are not as warm as year's past.  Masseys landing is only topping out at seventy-six degrees and dropping to seventy-two degrees today.  Even…
