Thursday saw the first of the wind from the hurricane with seas running five feet at the Delaware Lightship Buoy and expected to top eleven feet on Friday. It looks like Monday before most boats will be able to get back out on the ocean and then they may find the bottom stirred up.
The Katydid did run on Wednesday and caught some flounder and triggerfish. Chris Vann, the mate, had a 6.36-pound flounder, Bob Murphy had a 3.73 pounder while Tony Garsurevich had the pool winning 5.06-pound triggerfish. The Top Fin with Captain Pete Haines finished the summer shark season with just under 200 big toothy critters with most weighing over 250 pounds. That’s a lot of neat stories for some kids to tell and photos to show their classmates this week.
At the fishing pier on Cape Henlopen State Park they said the spot bite remained good before the blow and some mullet schools were beginning to move down the beach. The mullet run should hit high gear when the high water begins to drain out of the marsh.
