Summer Fishing abides

Temperatures are back on the rise both air and water, quickly too I might add.  Masseys landing water temps have been steadily jumping up as well as the surrounding waters.  Summer is definitely in full force.  Now we get to worry about things like humidity and flies.  Crabbing is getting better with the increasing temperatures.  Pot…

Fishing update

The Broadkill beach replenishment is rolling 24/7 and is surreal looking.  If you are unfamiliar with that area, the beach is small and close to what little dune bases are left from storms.  The new beach is literally a seventeen feet or so tall and a thirty foot wide berm in front of the houses and old dunes, and then gradually…

Keep Calm and Fish On

If you haven't heard, seen or been there, the Indian River inlet has been on fire for bluefish on the incoming tide.  It is crowded down there but for the most part you can find space to fish.  It is rather obvious the hot spots when you get there and the fish are on both sides.  the other day it was so thick with blues you could…

Stay Off The Protected Dunes

This is a bit of a rant, I get calls, cornered in public, and messages constantly about people complaining about the beaches, now it is my turn. How hard is it to stay out of the dunes?  Over the winter these kids went sledding on a dune face.  People got mad at us for wanting them to be charged.  By the way they were not charged…

Weekend Fishing report what to expect

We had some fog roll in yesterday that is helping keep the temperatures low for the fish to stay around.  At least that is what we are hoping for especially during tomorrow's surf fishing tournament.  The blues are still here in force and are now hitting the Indian River Inlet feeding on the shad in there.  You can still find them in Rehoboth…

When Will Blues Change Up For Striped Bass

Well it has been three solid days of hammering bluefish.  The boats are getting into them in the harbor at Cape Henlopen.  It is not hard to tell where the fish are just follow the boats.  We were fishing the chum slick of a head boat yesterday and it was almost unfair.  Every cast was a slammer bluefish, largest was 36 inches and…

Banging The Big Drum in Delaware

The big drum made an appearance the other day and as of last night the catches have increased exponentially.  Fresh clam is the bait of choice and you can find the Black drum from Broadkill Beach to Bowers Beach.  You boaters will need to look in the usual spots at the coral beds.  For the most part they are hitting on the top of…

The Blues have hit the road

For the most part the bluefish run of 2015 is over.  I know you don't want to hear that, but the fishing has certainly slowed down.  There are still some showing up near the pier in Cape Henlopen and the Broadkill River has seen its fair share.  For the most part, the blitzing runs are north as far up as New York.  It was fun while it…

Big blues are here

Well that didn't take long, while I was writing about fishing the folks lucky enough to be out there today, were banging up thirty inch bluefish.  Ethan Henry hit a nice blue from the surf at Beach Plum Island around noon.  Meanwhile John Stringham caught a blue from the Indian River inlet today on Bucktails at about the same…
