A Whale Of A Time Fishing

You never know what  you are going to see off the coast.  It is not uncommon to see whales in our waters, even near the beach.  Over the weekend while exploring different cuts to fish a friend of mine almost got a whale of a catch.  “We were pulling onto herring point after trying south all day and decided to look for birds along the beach.  Gannets have been everywhere on bunker schools with bass in the mix.  I was about to start casting when this whale popped up in the trough right in front of us.  We waited for it to swim by then we started fishing its wake.”  That whale was really close to shore, but so are the baitfish.  Matt and Micah had the dolphins pushing bass towards the beach the other day,  some days nature works in your favor.  Keep looking for gannets along the beaches and fish as near to them as you can cast.   There are a few head boats you can hire for whale watching trips out of Lewes.  You never know what you are going to see out there, every day is an adventure.

DSF is now on the Amazon servers, the server farms could no longer handle the traffic and size of the site.  I would like to thank everyone for their patience.  This has been a long month trying to rebuild the website, databases, and getting everything ready for this move.  We can handle a ridiculous amount of traffic now, so we should no longer have any issues crashing.

Fish On!
