WGMD Fishing Report 9-20-18

0


If you didn’t want to go fishing in the ocean, Thursday was a beautiful day.  A few folks did fish the surf, the inlet and the rock piles in the bay.

Tom at Lewes Harbour Marina told us Chris Ragni and Chris Hux fished the Outer Wall and the Ice Breakers using sand fleas for bait.  Chris Ragni caught two sheepshead with one an 8.1-pound citation winner.  Chris Hux caught some nice triggerfish.

Dave at Lighthouse View Tackle said fishing has been really good on the pier with lots of spot and two keeper flounder caught on Thursday.  The keeper flounder and lots of shorts have been caught on live minnows.

Old Inlet Bait and Tackle reported small blues scattered up and down the beach with cut mullet the best bait.  A few small rockfish have been in with the blues.  The same size blues will come through the inlet on incoming water and will hit small metal lures.  There is a lot of bait in the inlet right now.  The occasional speckled trout is caught from the southside pocket on jigs.

Governor Signs Bill at Rehoboth Bandstand Protecting Delaware from Offshore Drilling

Governor John Carney joined state and local officials, tourism, marine, fishing, and environmental advocates at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand today to sign two pieces of legislation aimed at protecting Delaware’s coastline and coastal economy from offshore drilling.

“An oil spill of some sort could negatively impact the fragile tidal wetlands and ocean beaches, and habitat here on the coast of Delaware,” Gov. Carney pointed out. “We are obviously concerned about the impact on the tourism industry here in Southern Delaware… a $7 billion industry that hires tens of thousands of employees.” Fundamentally, he added, these bills are “about protecting the natural environment of our state.”

Senate Bill 200 prohibits drilling for oil and natural gas in Delaware’s coastal zone and territorial waters, and precludes DNREC from issuing any permits in connection with the development of offshore drilling infrastructure, whether proposed for Delaware territorial waters or waters outside the state. This legislation will help maintain high-quality coastline waters and protect thousands of jobs supported by Delaware’s coastal tourism industry.

Senate Substitute 1 for Senate Bill 207 opposes drilling off Delaware’s coast and directs certain state officials and agencies to enforce Delaware’s rights relating to offshore drilling under federal and state environmental laws. This legislation allows the Delaware Department of Justice to take appropriate legal steps to protect the environment and tourism economy and prevent the sale of oil and gas leases for Delaware’s coastal waters.

The state’s jurisdiction extends only three miles from the coast. So the challenge becomes what to do to prevent drilling beyond the state’s jurisdiction. “As a state entity there is only so much that we can do,” says Sen. Stephanie Hansen who sponsored Senate Substitute 1 for Senate Bill 207. “We can’t say to them, you can’t drill here. But what we can do is make it extremely difficult for them. We can cause it to take a long time. We can make the federal consistency review process very laborious, very detailed, which is exactly what we want.”

Sen. Stephanie Hansen speaking to the crowd at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand. Image courtesy WGMD/Alan Henney.

Her bill directs state agencies to examine and tighten current laws and regulations regarding offshore drilling. “Now that we know that there is a direct threat of this,” Sen. Hansen stated, agencies should “go back and take a look at those laws and regulations with an eye to knowing what we are trying to prevent, and see if there is anything more that we can do, and come back to us and let us know what we can do to take the next step in the General Assembly to tighten things up. So that is one big thing that this bill does.”

“We were on the map, and that was a big concern,” says Sen. Ernesto Lopez, sponsor of Senate Bill 200. “So we felt it important to make a strong statement and we did that here today,” he added. “I am really proud that we were able to make this a bipartisan piece of legislation,” Sen. Lopez added. “It makes a strong statement that we believe and defend our coastline and that we always will and now it is a Delaware law!”

Wednesday was sunny, but still a bit too breezy for boats to fish the ocean.  The marine forecast doesn’t look too good out there for the rest of the week or the weekend.  Delaware Bay should be fishable for most of this time and the surf is going to be rough with an onshore wind for most of the time except for Saturday when the wind will be offshore.

Lewes Harbour Marina posted a photo of Mike Campanese with his first ever sheepshead.  He caught the fish on Lewes Harbour Marina sand fleas and from the photo I would guess he was in Delaware Bay.

My friend Doug Elliott called in the afternoon to give me a report on his trip to the fishing pier on Cape Henlopen State Park.  Doug fished with cut mullet and caught small blues.  He said the folks at the end of the pier were using bloodworms and catching spot.

Clark at Old Inlet Bait and Tackle said small blues were caught at Three Rs on Wednesday morning by anglers using cut mullet.  One of their customers caught two speckled trout on jigs along the southside of the inlet.

Delaware’s revenue forecast continues to improve. The Delaware Economic and Financial Advisory Council met for the first time since the FY 2019 budget was approved – and has raised the revenue estimate for this year by $43-million and $34-million for 2020. The new money comes from a combination of higher revenue estimates and legislative changes which includes changes to laws governing Delaware’s casinos and real estate transfers. DEFAC is forecasting state lawmakers will have about $4.65-billion to work with for the fiscal year 2020 budget.

Seaford police have arrested a man in connection with an attempted arson at the Miracle Revival Center Church early this month. Police say a Molotov cocktail type of device was found inside the church. It had extinguished itself before causing any burn damage to the church though an ignitable substance, believed to be gasoline, did cause damage to the carpeting. Seaford Police Department, ATF and the Delaware State Fire Marshal’s Office say 28 year old Garry Elmidort was developed as a person of interest as they investigated a series of fires in the area. He is charged with 2nd degree attempted arson, possession of an incendiary device, and two counts of criminal mischief.


 

Delmarva Peak Energy Conservation from 1 to 2pm Wednesday

0

A conservation period will be called from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, September 19, for all Delmarva Power customers, and for Delmarva Power’s Maryland and Delaware customers participating in Energy Wise Rewards.

Delmarva Power’s Delaware residential and small commercial customers and its Maryland residential customers can receive a bill credit of $1.25 for every kilowatt hour (kWh) of reduced energy use below the customer’s average energy use during specific hours on a Peak Savings Day. Customers will receive a phone call indicating the hours to reduce energy use. Customers can also choose to be notified by email or text.

For customers participating in Delmarva Power’s Energy Wise Rewards, a conservation period will be called from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. This means that Delmarva Power will cycle participants’ air conditioner compressors off and on for short intervals during these hours. Because the air conditioner fan will continue to run, most customers will not notice a temperature change in their homes. It may take up to a half-hour after the event ends for air conditioners to resume normal operations. 

Peak Energy Savings Credit and Energy Wise Rewards are voluntary programs. Energy Wise Rewards offers customers a choice of a web-programmable thermostat or an outdoor switch, which the energy company installs at no charge.  

Customers can learn more about Peak Energy Savings Credits and get energy-saving tips by calling 1-855-750-PEAK (Delaware) or 1-855-751-PEAK (Maryland) or visiting delmarva.com/peak.


 

WGMD Fishing Report 9-18-18

Tuesday should be the final gasp from Hurricane Florence and some of the larger charter boats may be able to sail by Wednesday or Thursday.  It will be very interesting to see what they find.

My son Roger gave me a fishing report from North Jersey where the head boat Golden Eagle ran offshore over the weekend and caught yellowfin tuna and lots of dolphin.

On my way to the Massey’s Ditch hearing on Monday I noticed some of the beach access points were still closed.  I suspect the beach has quite a drop off after the erosion caused by the big seas over the past week or more.

One of the more interesting facts that I learned at the hearing was the sand flow between the north jetty at the inlet and the north beach goes around in a circle.  The normal flow is south to north which is why the sand builds up along the south jetty.  The two big sand bars inside and outside the inlet are created by the water flowing through the inlet that carries sand to and fro.

Sussex County Council Approves Amended Special Events Ordinance & other Action

0
sussexcounty-admin

The Sussex County Council continued it’s public hearing on the proposed increase of forested or landscaped buffers for subdivisions or overlays. An additional 7 people added their comments to the record – most in support of the expanded buffer from 20-feet to 40-feet. No vote has been taken on the proposed ordinance.

In Old Business, the council also approved an amended ordinance for short-term special events that are permitted in specific districts – AR-1, GR, B-1, C-1, CR-1 and M. The amended sections are highlighted in yellow. Councilman Rob Arlett felt there was a lot of information to go over and made a motion to defer for 2 weeks. That motion was defeated and a vote on the amended ordinance was approved by a 3 to 2 vote – with Arlett and Councilman Sam Wilson voting against.

The council also deferred a vote on CU 2127 for Wine Worx, LLC. Councilman George Cole proposed a series of conditions for the property – including that events would only take place on the front section of the property, and only on Fridays and Saturdays and that no concerts would be allowed. The council will revisit the conditional use next week.

For months, there has been public comment during County Council meetings regarding the County Board of Adjustment. The County has also received a letter from the Delaware Coalition for Open Government, which County Administrator Todd Lawson discussed with the Council and highlighted part of the county’s 7-page response. Lawson says that the county doesn’t agree with all of the issues cited, but “if and where possible the county will consider their feedback and adjust our operations to make the necessary improvements.”

The Coalitions cited four primary issues:

  1. Access to the BOA’s key documents in a usable format, which the county found no violations of law or FOIA. However the County will explore the posting of the approved findings of fact on the docket in the near future – possibly just a few weeks.
  2. Lack of public input tot he BOA’s operation during a meeting – that public comments are not permitted, however the BOA’s makeup doesn’t allow for public comment, except during a public hearing. The BOA is a quazi-judicial board appointed by the County Council – it is not a legislative body. The BOA’s authority is derived from the powers delegated to it by the County Council.  Only the County Council can make such a change.
  3. There is no administrative mechanism or opponents of cases brought to the BOA to challenge the Board’s decisions. Lawson says this is not true – a request to rehear a case can be requested by either side within 10 days (rule 18).
  4. The BOA is not properly administering oaths and affirmations in obtaining testimony in cases. Lawson says this is not true – the oath is not required to be given by the BOA Chairman. The chair of the BOA may administer such oaths – oaths can also be administered by the Assistant County Attorney and do not invalidate the decisions made by the BOA.

The County is joining Sussex County Volunteer Delaware 50+ and the State Office of Volunteerism in collecting donated items for Stockings for Soldiers at the County offices on the Circle in Georgetown. These items will be sent to deployed service members and K-9 members who are away from home during the Holiday Season. Donations will be accepted through the end of October. (CLICK HERE FOR THE SHOPPING LIST)

Director of Emergency Services, Joe Thomas related to the County Council a radio issue that is being seen by fire and ambulance companies that provide mutual aid to companies in Worcester and Wicomico Counties. This is because of a change in the radio systems used now in Maryland. Thomas has been looking for a fix for months. Motorola is offering a one-time 65% discount on a flash kit that will fix the issue that will be available until the end of the year. For 420 Sussex County radios – the cost comes to about $76,000 with the discount. Thomas recently been contacted by DEMA which has some grant funding of about $75,000 that could be reallocated towards this project.

A crash involving a pedestrian and a Delaware State Trooper is under investigation by State Police. Just after 5am a State Trooper was northbound on Route 1 approaching Dartmouth Drive with a green light when a 67 year old man from Lewes in a motorized wheelchair tried to cross Route 1 within the cross walk. The pedestrian failed to obey the signal and moved into the path of the Trooper’s Tahoe. The trooper tried to avoid the collision, but struck the wheelchair – ejecting the pedestrian. The victim was taken to Beebe Medical Center and is in stable condition – impairment on his part is not known. The Trooper was wearing his seat belt and was not injured.

On Monday evening I attended the informational hearing on the Massey’s Ditch dredging project held at the Bethany Beach Library.  Folks from DNREC’s Soil and Water Conservation Department gave a good presentation on exactly what is planned, when and how it will be done.

There will be pipes laid from Massey’s Ditch across the marsh to the ocean north of Indian River Inlet to carry the dredge spoils to the beach.  A floating booster pump behind Burton’s Island will keep the dredge spoils moving.  The dredge pipe will go through a culvert under Route 1 and exit by the base of the Indian River Inlet Bridge.

The new channel will be 6.5 feet deep at mean low water and 100 feet wide. 

Bids for this project will go out soon.  The estimated cost will be between 3 and 4.5 million dollars.  The actual cost won’t be known until the bids come back.  The dredging is supposed to begin in January and finish up in March.

Sunday saw fair skies, but that relentless east wind just won’t lay down. 

I described what a great tournament the Delaware Mobile Surf Fishermen hold every year, but ran out of time to give you more information.  If you would like to fish this tournament go to dmsclub.org and download all tournament information.

I spoke with Steve at Smith Bait and Tackle in Leipsic and he said not many people went fishing up there last week.  I had the same report from Patty at Captain Bones Bait and Tackle.  Both stores said catfish and white perch caught from the banks of the tidal rivers and creeks on bloodworms, cut bait or peeler crab were the only fish they saw all week.

Over in the Chesapeake Bay the reports were not much better.  The high tides have freed large debris from the beaches and marshes so navigation is a bit dangerous.  Live lining white perch or spot along channel edges or bridge pilings has been the most successful technique for catching rockfish.

Free parking returns to downtown Rehoboth Beach starting today, Monday, Sept. 17, 2018.  Typically parking meters would return to service on the Friday of the next Memorial Day Weekend.  However, city officials have scheduled a special meeting this Friday, Sept. 21, to discuss proposed changes to the parking meter and permit regulations as recommended by the city’s parking committee.

The committee has recommended that parking meters and permits start on May 1, but that will certainly be a topic of discussion based on the complaints the city has already received.

For information on parking in Rehoboth Beach contact the Parking Department at (302) 227-6184.

Saturday was better than the forecast, but the ocean and bay were still pretty rough.  It doesn’t look like the seas will settle down before next Thursday so it’s going to be a long week.

I took a trip to Cape Henlopen State Park on Saturday afternoon and found the access road to the Navy Crossing closed, but the Herring Point access was open.  I drove up to the Herring Point parking lot and checked out the beach on both sides.  The water was almost up to the dunes on the Navy Crossing side, but still a safe distance away on the Herring Point side.  Even with the access open I only saw a few trucks between Herring Point and Gordon’s Pond.  The surf was pretty rough so I don’t think the fishing was that good.

A stop by the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park revealed a number of cars and trucks in the parking lot.  A call to Lighthouse View Tackle confirmed they saw quite a few anglers and there were some decent fish caught.  Spot on bloodworms, blues on cut bait and flounder on live minnows or mullet.

The Popular “Acoustic Jam Night” Returns to Rehoboth Beach Museum!

For a blast from the past, don’t miss the Rehoboth Beach Museum’s re-creation of Acoustic Jam Night, the popular musical event held at The Front Page Restaurant & Bar from 1984 through 1993. This year’s Jam Night will be on Friday, Oct. 5, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Rehoboth Beach Museum.

The Jam Night will be held in the new lecture hall, which was added as part of a major renovation of the museum’s second floor.

The Front Page was a kind of melting pot of live music in its era. It fostered a lot of different kinds of music, and gave local musicians a chance to express themselves in front of an always-supportive audience,” said Terry Plowman, former owner of The Front Page. Plowman will once again emcee Acoustic Jam Night and will perform.

Musicians Kenny Thompson, Ken Schleifer, Bill Robertson, and Steve Wilson share the stage at the Rehoboth Beach Museum’s 2017 Acoustic Jam Night. Image courtesy Rehoboth Beach Historical Society.

Over the 10 years of Acoustic Jam Night, hundreds of amateur and professional musicians performed for an enthusiastic crowd every Tuesday in the summer and every Saturday in the off-season.

Original players from the Front Page era will return, including Bill Robertson, Steve Wilson, Ken Thompson, and Mike Long, all members of the house band that accompanied many of the performers. Other players will include Stuart Vining and his singing partner, Amy Felker; Walt Hetfield, music teacher at Rehoboth Elementary and a former Front Page regular; Bill Richardson, Kent Schoch, and others.

The Rehoboth Museum’s Acoustic Jam Night sells out every year, so get tickets now by calling (302) 227-7310, or stop by the museum to pay in person.

Reservations are limited. The cost is $20 and must be paid prior to the event. The museum is next to the visitor center at 511 Rehoboth Ave.  Parking is available and the museum is handicapped-accessible.

The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society and Museum are a nonprofit organization. The society’s mission is to preserve and showcase artifacts that illustrated the development of the community.
