Monday began with rain and wind with small craft advisories up all day. Tuesday looks like it may be fishable and I hope to try somewhere for something because after that, it’s all downhill. I look for gale, if not storm warnings, later in the week.
Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina said Dwayne Currie was perch fishing in Cedar Creek on Sunday when he caught a 1.42-pound crappie on a grass shrimp.
My friend and DMS Secretary Emeritus George Mood caught a bluefish at Fenwick Island on Saturday.
Old Inlet Bait and Tackle told us a few tog and short rockfish were caught out of the Inlet on Monday.
If you have a boat, you may want to think about getting it ready for fishing. Mine is still under a tarp that has been torn up since that big blow we had a few weeks ago. Ordered a real boat cover today and as soon as it arrives, I will begin the process of seeing if my 1996 Mercury two-stroke is going to run another year. If not, I will be doing a lot more surf fishing.
