A Lincoln man was hospitalized after he was struck by a Jeep Patriot Friday night on Route 113 in the area of Staytonville Road near Ellendale.  Police say the 33 year old Lincoln man was walking on the white dotted line on Route 113 when the driver honked his horn.  The pedestrian moved into the path of the Jeep and was struck by the left side mirror.  The driver stopped – he was properly restrained and was not impaired.  The pedestrian suffered multiple non-life threatening injuries and was flown to Christiana Hospital.  Police say he was not in a marked crosswalk, wore dark clothing and had no reflective clothing or flashlight and was drunk on the highway.  The investigation is continuing.

WGMD Fishing Report 11-17-18


The gale force winds of Thursday and Friday did lay down as advertised, but the dirty water they left behind made for some difficult fishing on Saturday.

At Old Inlet Bait and Tackle the report was a complete disappearance of the small rockfish that had been hanging out around the Coast Guard Station during nighttime hours.  Where fish had been caught on just about every cast on bucktails and speck rigs none were caught during the last outgoing current.

Lauren at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em said several boats sailed on Saturday, but the only one that returned with any fish was the Miss Ene II.  They managed to find 20 black sea bass.

Another long suffering project that will not use any fishing license money is the boat ramp at 7th Street in Wilmington.  This project will be paid for with money awarded to Delaware from fines levied after an oil spill in the Delaware River.  Some of that money was earmarked for a recreational project and this is the one they settled on.  The ramp will provide access to the Brandywine and Christina rivers.

WGMD Fishing Report 11-16-18


I am sort of holding my breath as the gale on Friday is supposed to lay out over the weekend and give us fishable conditions.

At Old Inlet the report was good fishing during outgoing water at night for short rockfish with a few keepers.  Boats working the lights at the Coast Guard Station have had the best luck.  One angler casting from a boat caught a 15.5-inch tog on a speck rig.

Getting back to the Council on Recreational Fishing Funding it looks like there will be new parking lots at Haven Lake and Bowers Beach.  We also learned that a problem has developed at the Massey’s Landing boat ramp and fishing pier.  It seem the concrete is sinking.  Divers inspected the supports and found they were full of holes.  Engineers will now have the task of devising a fix for this problem.

As we have mentioned before, the Phillips Landing project should be complete by March 2019.  The builders have decided to place a large rubber mat at the kayak launching site to make it easier and safer for those folks.

Wallops Launched Spacecraft Now Headed to the ISS


After 2 days of weather delays, the resupply mission to the International Space Station left the Wallops Flight Facility just after 4 this morning.  The Cygnus spacecraft is carrying 7,400 pounds of crew supplies, hardware and science to the International Space Station.  Included in the 2300 pounds of  science and research – a test of the first integrated 3D printer and recycler to turn waste plastic materials into high-quality 3D-printer filament to create tools and materials, a key capability for future long-duration space missions beyond low-Earth orbit.

Cygnus is expected to arrive at the orbital laboratory Monday, November 19. Expedition 57 astronauts Serena Auñón-Chancellor of NASA and Alexander Gerst of ESA (European Space Agency) will use the space station’s robotic arm to grapple Cygnus about 5:20am. Installation coverage will begin at 4am on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

Antares and Cygnus successfully launch from Wallops Island, VA

3…2…1… LIFTOFF! The Cygnus cargo spacecraft successfully launched from Pad-0A in Virginia. Next stop: The International Space Station. The 7,400 pounds of scientific experiments, supplies and holiday treats will arrive on station.

Raw Ground Turkey Recall


WASHINGTON, Nov. 15, 2018 – Jennie-O Turkey Store Sales, LLC, a Barron, Wis. establishment, is recalling approximately 91,388 pounds of raw ground turkey products that may be associated with an illness outbreak of Salmonella Reading, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The raw ground turkey products items were produced on September 11, 2018. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF only)]

  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O GROUND TURKEY 93% LEAN | 7% FAT” with “Use by” dates of 10/01/2018 and 10/02/2018.
  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O TACO SEASONED GROUND TURKEY” with a “Use by” date of 10/02/2018.
  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O GROUND TURKEY 85% LEAN | 15% FAT” with a “Use by” date of 10/02/2018.
  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O ITALIAN SEASONED GROUND TURKEY” with a “Use by” date of 10/02/2018.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-190” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

FSIS, and its public health partners, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Arizona Department of Health Services, have been conducting traceback activities for a sample of Jennie-O brand ground turkey in an intact, unopened package from a case-patient’s home. The patient tested positive for Salmonella Reading and the sample from the ground turkey matches the outbreak strain.

FSIS, the CDC, and state public health and agriculture partners, have been working together on an illness cluster involving 164 case-patients in 35 states. Patients have reported eating different types and brands of turkey products purchased from many different stores, handling raw turkey pet food and/or raw turkey, or working with live turkeys or living with someone who handled live turkeys. FSIS continues to work with the CDC and state health departments on this investigation and will provide updated information as it becomes available. Based on the continuing investigation, additional product from other companies may also be recalled.

Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website at

FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume raw poultry product that has been cooked to a temperature of 165°F. Safe steps in food handling, cooking, and storage are essential in preventing foodborne illness. You can’t see, smell, or taste harmful bacteria that may cause illness. In every step of food preparation, follow the four guidelines to keep food safe:

  • Clean—Wash hands and surfaces often.
  • Separate—Separate raw meat from other foods.
  • Cook—Cook to the right temperature.
  • Chill—Refrigerate food promptly.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Jennie-O Consumer Engagement Team at 1-800-621-3505, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Central Time Monday – Friday and 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Central Time Saturday and Sunday. Media with questions can contact or 507-434-6352.

Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at or via smartphone at The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day. The online Electronic Consumer Complaint Monitoring System can be accessed 24 hours a day at:

WGMD Fishing Report 11-15-18


The gale warnings for Thursday will be up again on Friday, but the weekend could be fishable and next week doesn’t look too bad right now.  Of course, all of that is subject to change without notice.

On Wednesday evening I attended the Advisory Council on Recreational Fishing Funding held in Dover.  This council has been meeting twice a year since the general fishing license passed into law with the charge of determining where the money raised by the license will be spent.

For the most part, the money goes towards building or maintaining fishing access points such as fishing piers and boat ramps.  One project that seems to have taken forever is the new boat ramp at Millsboro Pond.  Finally, everything is in place to begin the work.  The ramp will be reconfigured and there will be parking for seven trucks/cars with trailers.  A permanent dock will also be built.  As with all projects funded with license money, 75% comes from the federal excise tax on fishing equipment.

UPDATED  11-15-18 – Dover Police are now looking into what appears to be a murder-suicide in Camden. Police located the vehicle belonging to Dishiem Johnson Thursday in a parking lot on South West Street in Camden. Detectives learned that Johnson was possibly residing in an apartment in that area. Inside the apartment, detectives found both Ahyanna Baker-Griffin and Dishiem Johnson deceased inside the apartment as the result of apparent gunshot wounds. Police believe Johnson may have taken his own life following the murder of Ahyanna Baker-Griffin – the final determination on manner of death will be made by the Division of Forensic Science.

The investigation continues – anyone with information is encouraged to call Dover Police 302-736-7111.


Have you seen Ahyanna Baker-Griffin? The 20 year old from Dover was last seen leaving her South Queen Street home with her boyfriend, 21 year old Dishiem Johnson in a dark-colored Nissan Sentra with tinted windows on Thursday morning. Family members have not been able to contact her, she’s missed a family function and has not been at work since Thursday. Family members reported her missing to Dover Police on Saturday. Anyone with information should contact Dover Police at 302-736-7111 or Crime Stoppers – 800-TIP-3333.

WGMD Fishing Report 11-14-18


With small craft advisories up on Wednesday no one got out and it looks like we could have gale warnings up for Thursday and Friday.  On the bright side, the weather for the weekend could be fishable.  Is that even possible?

Back in the day, I used to spend Thanksgiving week on Hatteras Island with my two sons and their families.  We finally quit going when the fishing got so bad we spent a week catching exactly one small sea mullet (kingfish).

Right now not only are they catching sea mullet to two pounds the red drum run in the surf has been excellent.  The only problem is the red drum seem to attract a bad crowd at the Point who seem to feel confrontation is part of the sport of fishing.  In all my years of fishing on Hatteras Island I believe I fished the Point exactly twice.  Once was for big blues and the other time was for flounder.  The flounder crowd was a bit less hectic, but the bluefish folks were as mad as hatters with Hopkins flying through the air in every direction.

WGMD Fishing Report 11-12-18


Monday saw weather as good as you are going to get in November so I decided to give Indian River Inlet a try.  I arrived around 9:00 AM and fished the incoming into the slack and the first of the outgoing.  My total catch was one small oyster cracker on a sand flea.  I saw several small tog caught, but did not see anything large enough to keep.  The best action was from the bridge to the beach on the northside.  I was on the west side of the bridge.  A few short rockfish were caught on small jigs during slack water.

Tommy at Lewes Harbour Marina said the Monday group on the Katydid finally had some decent weather and made good use of the day.  They brought in 115 sea bass plus a couple of tog and triggerfish.

Lauren at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em had four boats out for swordfish, but they had not returned in time for this report.

At Old Inlet Bait and Tackle they told us some short rockfish were caught from the beach at Faithful Steward on clams over the weekend.

The Fish Bound out of Ocean City had a boat limit of tog to 10 pounds and sheepshead to 13 pounds on Monday.

WGMD Fishing Report 11-11-18


Sunday was better than Saturday, but not many boats went out on the water.  Monday looks like the best day this week.

Spoke with Bill’s Sport Shop and was told Bill Baker is in a Milford rehab recovering from his fall last Sunday.  We wish him a speedy recovery.

At Lewes Harbour Marina the report was one or two boats went tog fishing, but only had limited success.  Chris at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em had the same report.

At Captain Bone’s Bait and Tackle Patty told us Dominick Vavala caught a one-pound, nine-ounce yellow perch on a swim shad out of the Appoquinimick Creek.

At Smith Bait and Tackle Steve reported that Christian Pruneda had a one-pound, two-ounce yellow perch on a minnow from the Leipsic River.

Reports from the north Jersey area indicate stripers in the 20 to 30-pound class with at least one 50 pounder being caught from head and party boats.  If the fish are on sand eels then Diamond jigs are doing the job.  When bunker are the prime feed then snag and drop works best.
