The tog bite is still very good, boats are pulling big citation worthy fish up from the structure. Good numbers of sea bass are still being caught as well, the sea bass season is doing well this year. Well, it seems the anglers willing to take the cruise up the coast are starting to produce nice catches of stripers. There were some nice size striped bass weighed in at the shop this weekend. It looks like we may start seeing bigger groups of the stripers show up in the next week or so, I have heard that the fish are starting to gather up a little bit closer to home. I would hope (and pray) lol, that this may be the week we see them more close to home. We have a full selection of MOJO rigs, ADDICTION BAITS, STRETCH 25’s & 30’S. We also have live eels, fresh clam in shell, and bunker. Stop by and see us.

Tightlines everyone, Tommy Serbin.

The weather has changed in our favor, and charter boats and private boats have been pulling up big tog, and boat limits of sea bass. The number one question being asked of us here at the shop is….Are the stripers here?. Even though an angler or two have been lucky enough to get a few big ones close by, the big group we are waiting to arrive is still a little further north. Having said that, they are a lot closer than they were two weeks ago. But still far enough out of reach, lol. Hopefully with the temp drop coming next week we will start to use the term “ BLITZ”, lets all cross our fingers and appease the fish gods…We have all your striper gear from stretches, MOJO rigs, Sebile lures and top water plugs and poppers. We also have bunker, live spot, eels, and plenty of Tautog and sea bass bait. We have fresh chowder clams, salted pints, and 4 gal buckets of salted clam available. Stop in and sign up for the striper tournament, you never know when you are gonna catch that pool winner.

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.

The fishing continues to be steady as far as sea bass and tog are concerned. Anglers have been taking advantage of the resident stripers that are making their way out of the rivers and the backwaters. Quite a few decent size stripers have been landed the last week or two. I'm glad to see that the stripers are being caught, but if you are a striper addict you are holding your breath right now waiting to hear that they are blowing up at either Montauk, or even better LBI state park, which means that they are getting ready to hopefully head our way and park off the local waters so we can enjoy a great striper season like days of old. We would even welcome a nice run of big chomper blue fish. Anything to get us out of this lull of a fall fishing season that we are in at the present time. Keep the faith, it will happen.

Tog fishing has picked up a little, the sizes are getting better, but anglers are still having to weed through small fish to get a few keepers. Again, the water temps and the winds are directly playing a big part in the fishing this fall so far. Offshore sites are turning up great catches of sea bass with some flounder also being caught. If you can get there, go out and have a great day. Remember a bad day of fishing is still better than a good day at work. Come by and see our large selection of MOJOS, stretch 25's, stretch 30's, Bomber lures and all your trolling gear needs. We are also stocking SEBILE stick baits. Gulp has put out another new product called the " NEMESIS", in a 6" version. These are some of the baddest GULP baits I've ever seen. We are also ready to set you up with a new trolling combo, or a new "chunking" rod & reel. Stop in and check out our very large selection.

We have to believe that with this cold front coming in that the fishing will start to pick up. I am a firm believer that the weather directly effects wether the fish bite or not, and further more the big fish start to become more aggressive when feeding. Now with that being said, the tog bite has gotten better over the last week or so, sea bass continues to be very good and we are starting to see some decent size stripers being caught in local waters. These are not migrating fish, but the resident stripers, the migrating fish are still further north making their way south. We hope too start seeing them show up in the coming weeks.

Their have been some large tog caught and we are still seeing black drum hit the table. The charter boats that are heading deep for sea bass are recording stellar catches, with some big tog mixed in, as well as large trigger fish. The surf is still producing small bluefish, some weakfish and some keeper stripers.

If you need to pick up some gear for the late fishing season stop by and see us, we have all your sea bass and striper gear ready to go. We have a full line of MOJO rigs, bottom fishing rigs and plenty of bait for all your needs.

Tight lines everyone, Tommy Serbin.
