Saturday was cold and damp, but I was inside the Bower’s Beach Fire Hall eating lots of good food and talking about fishing. On my way home I stopped by a few local spots and only saw two guys fishing. They were at the base of the Milton Spillway and I didn’t see them catch anything.
One fellow who caught something was sorry he did. Two river herring taken near Seaford cost out intrepid angler $214. We had another poacher using a net within 300 feet of a spillway. You must really love a herring to take that kind of chance to catch and keep some. Back when they were legal to retain I still threw most of them back because I didn’t care for the taste or the bones. I did keep a few that I salted down for bait and a half dozen or so I planted under my tomatoes.
According to my source, it looks like the State of Delaware will be sinking the old Twin Capes ferry boat at the Del-Jersey-Land Reef by the end of May. As is always the case, the exact date is weather dependent.
