Gator blues have invaded Delaware

You always hear about that one time your friends caught an epic blitz or run of fish.  You know how it goes, you miss the trip and then your phone rings or you hear about it later.   Luckily today I got there in time to witness the bluefish hammering lines left and right.  I am also kicking myself for not getting up earlier, but such…

Crab Pot season is over and striped bass season is slow

Weill it is December first and it is sixty degrees outside, merry flip flop weather.  Crab pot season has ended and they need to be removed from the waters.  This is a great day to clean and repair your crab pots.  Check the turtle guards if they need replacing.  A pressure washer works great when the pots are still wet from soaking…

The Fall Run … Coming Soon to a Beach Near You?

So when are the big bass going to arrive?  I think I hear that question ten times a day.  My answer is always, when they get here and then all you can do is smile.  Honestly to call exactly when the fall run will arrive in Delaware is hard, only the fish know.  So you have to watch other sites for reports, and talk to friends up and…

Modified mullet rigs catch more bluefish

I went fishing yesterday with a buddy of mine from college, Matt Rich, whom I have not seen in twenty years.  He grew up on the Eastern shore and is now residing in Los Angelos.  Of course he wanted to catch striped bass and some big bluefish, and I told him unfortunately they are not here like they were back in those days and it is…

Summer comes to an end but the fishing continues

The summer season is almost over, and the fishing has not changed much.  There are still plenty of flounder showing up at the Old Grounds.   The Indian River Inlet has been decent for flounder, the incoming tide has been better than the outgoing.  Massey's Landing has seen some nice ones pulled from the ditch.  Gulp (chartreuse) on speck rigs,…

Delaware surf fishing report

It was very wet here a few days ago, Friday we were hit with monsoon style rains, and the state flooded.  Many people in Delaware had instant waterfront property.  That didn't stop a few people from hitting the water, and doing a little fishing.  It did make travel conditions rough for the weekend.  Now we are having a heat wave, but it is nice…
