Bandit Blackfishing Delaware Mon 1/12 <hr style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" size="1"> <!-- / icon and title --> <!-- message --> Had Maryland fishing club on board the Island Current.

Headed out to alot more wind then we thought. With the tide against them they were steep. Set up just had a pick, 9lber by mr shin #2. picked at some keepers and shorts but a tough bite. Perfectly trimmed small grennies worke best.

When the tide changed and went with the wind the seas laid down but the CURRENT forget it it. Had to get snagged to stop your sinker to get a bite.Went inshore where 16 oz held and caught a few more keepers and shorts.

Good life on everything though just tough cond cant wait to be off the moon.Around 30 keepers total today. high hook was 6.

Bandit Blackfishing Delaware Fri 1/9 and Sat 1/10 <hr style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" size="1"> <!-- / icon and title --> <!-- message --> Sailed fri and sat with the island current, much better fishing this week

Fri we sailed with small group fished to the south in brutal cold with strong nw.

Got a good pick on both drops keepers and shorts. We missed a lot bites with bouncing around. Tie for high hook, bob and dennis both had 7 keepers and fish of 10 1/2 and 9lbs were landed.

Sat 1/10 The tog chewed real good. High hook Andrew reeled in 17 keepers, witha 9lber Keeping 10. Mr juu and dain combined for 24 keepers retaining there legal limit. Few other limits and most other had 4-7 keepers, most nice size boxers. Fished in 80 ft, current only got strong in the pm.

Bandit Delaware Tog Report 1/3-1/4 <hr style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" size="1"> <!-- / icon and title --> <!-- message --> Sailed with Charters on sat and sun. Fishing Was Poor both days for us Wish we had better to report.Fri we got blown out

Sat every where we went we just had a scratchy, no come back type bites, with mostly shorts High hook had 3 keepers. The guys were sharp fisherman but they did not cooperate with us.

Sun we steamed to the offshore reef got anchored up and only had scratchy bite couple of keepers and a few shorts, shifted around ng, headed back to the sw and lost all anchoring conditions, No breeze like a lake. Coulndt keep even one anchor rope tight. too nice We only picked a few more keepers to 8lbs at the end of the day.

Bandit Delaware Blackfish Report Fri 12/26 and 12/27 <hr style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" size="1"> <!-- / icon and title --> <!-- message --> Sail our first trip with the Island Current Boat this season in Delaware Fri. Had Mr Shin and the fishing club aboard. Made 3 drops with good life on all of them. Mr Shin and Shu had there 10 fish limits with nice boxers. Couple other guys had 10 fish limits as well. Most others guys had 4-6 keepers.

Had a real strong current, needed 12-16 oz to hold. The guys who leaded up caught Better. If the current was a little less probably wouldhave been even better.

On sat we sailed with super calm / flat seas. Got set up on the first spot and had good life all around the boat to 9lbs but it didnt last long at all. Slid and slided all over the place and couldnt sit right without the slide. Pull Your hair out day

When we finally got some wind, we aready had the current again. One of those days for us. High Hook had 4 keepers. And the broken one won the pool witha 9lber. Lucky ones had afew keepers but a bunch had none.
