I did have one report from Sunday. A group of fishermen launched their boats at Sharptown, Maryland and fished the Nanticoke River for white perch. Between the two boats they boxed over 80 fish. Sounds like a pretty good day.
I don’t think anyone is going to be fishing anywhere during the next few days. Looks like we will be getting just what we need, the third nor’easter in less than two weeks. Once again Delaware will get off easy compared to the New England states where snow and high winds will make for a few more miserable days.
We are going to get some northeast wind on Tuesday, but it will quickly change over to northwest. If the wind does as predicted, the ocean beaches will once again be spared from a major erosion problem. The Delaware Bay and the Inland Bays will bear the brunt of the storm.
Like the nor’easters that proceeded this one, I expect the water temperature in the ocean to drop or at best remain the same. In either case the fishing season will be further delayed.
This is Eric Burnley with you WGMD fishing report.
