This past week the weather gave anglers a couple days to get out and get some fishing in at the wreck and reef sites. The flounder are still being picked over here and there but they seem to be making their way to deeper water. The sea bass action is still very good, and boats are having great days getting their boat limits. Some Tautog are now being caught on the wrecks and reef sites, but very few keepers. Reports from the captains are that there are a lot of shorts, but the keepers being caught are of good keeper size. As the water gets cooler the bites will get better.
The surf action is getting a little better with some snapper blue fish hanging around the point at Cape Henlopen state park. The pier fishing is still producing some spot, snapper blues and even the occasional keeper flounder. Some anglers have caught small stripers on blood worms or fresh mullet chunks. This weather change cooling the water down should bring the bigger blue fish and hopefully the big stripers.
We have had a leader board change for our Annual Tautog tournament, Joe Mcneal has taken the #1 spot as of yesterday with a very nice 4.95 lb. tog that he caught aboard the Katydid. That drops Fred Robinson to the #2 spot with his 4.87 lb. tog, and Daryl Mergonthaller brings up the #3 spot with his 4.47 lb. tog also caught aboard the Katydid. Anglers, remember or tog tournament is going on right now. Stop by and get in the tournament, you can pay by the day or pay for the month. The cost is $5 per day per angler, or $30 per angler for the rest of the month.
Tightlines Everyone, Tommy Serbin.
