Even though the weather has not been very friendly the last two weeks anglers have found a way to stack up some decent catches when the wind and rain allowed. Boats that have made it out to deeper waters have had good days with sea bass with some nice big tautog to pick through. Resident stripers are still giving anglers a run for their money along the surf and in the local creeks and canals. It will still be a couple of more weeks until the migrating fish start to make their way south. As bad as this sounds, we need this cold nasty weather to help move the big stripers south. There has been a lot of bait fish swimming up in the bay this year so far, hopefully that will help the stripers make that hard left turn and hang out with anglers here in Delaware. Reports are confirming that the fish further north are slowly starting to move around and pop up in different areas. There is no rhyme or reason to where or when the fish decide to grab a snack, most anglers up north have blisters on their thumbs from checking Facebook, their local bait shop sites, and just good old info passing from angler to angler. Keep your fingers crossed that the fishing gods bless us with a great fall/winter fishing season.
Tightlines everyone, Tommy Serbin.
