Things are starting to get back to normal. I had back surgery on April 9, 2009 and I am recovering nicely; however, I still cannot lift anything over 5 pounds and cannot bend, lift or twist my back. Sorry that I have been negligent in keeping up the fishing reports. I am pretending I am on a mini-vacation. I have been directing the store (Terry) while sitting in a big comfortable chair.

In the surf, black drum have been caught with clams and a few stripers with fresh bunker and of course doggies and skates. Tog have seemed to be hot this week. Nice flounder have been reported too. Yesterday, several over 20 inch flounder were taken at the Oceanic Pier. The Rt. 50 Bridge is producing some legal stripers. Above the Rt. 90 Bridge, in front of the airport, and below the Assateague Bridge have been some nice flounder. Last Sunday Terry Morris of Frankford, DE caught a 25 5/8 inch flounder that weighed 6 ¼ pounds with minnows in front of the airport.

Harbor Tackle has fresh bunker, live minnows, live chowder clams, live black saltys, live eels, and live green crabs.

In the surf, black drum, some stripers, 17 inch bluefish, 26 inch flounder, doggies and skates have been caught. Tog are still hot this week. Nice flounder have been caught behind the airport and at the Oceanic Pier. On Tuesday one of my customers limited out on flounder and had to throw back legal fish. He was fishing in the bay behind Assateague. Rt. 50 Bridge is producing some legal stripers. Above the Rt. 90 Bridge, in front of the airport, and below the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Assateague</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Bridge</st1:PlaceType></st1:place> nice flounder have been taken.

Harbor Tackle Fishing Report May 14, 2009

Fishing for stripers is HOT. Finally the stripers have shown up in numbers. Last weekend the stripers hit the beaches. Fishing was especially good at AI. There were stripers caught on the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Ocean</st1:PlaceType> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">City</st1:PlaceType> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">Beach</st1:PlaceType> on up through the <st1:State w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Delaware</st1:place></st1:State> beaches. Most people that I talked to that fished last weekend limited out with stripers. Most of the fish ranged from 28 inches to 48 inches with the biggest that was reported to Harbor Tackle was 51 inches. There was a 33 inch striper taken at the Oceanic Pier. The Indian River Inlet has been hot this week. Deven Fernandez and Joe Caucci caught their limit of stripers Tuesday and Wednesday night. I was told that a few 30 inch blues have been taken at <st1:place w:st="on">Indian River</st1:place>. Tog fishing is still good and so is the flounder fishing at the usual places.

Harbor Tackle Fishing Report May 22, 2009

Stripers are still in the Assateague surf and on the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placetype w:st="on">Ocean</st1:placetype> <st1:placetype w:st="on">City</st1:placetype></st1:place> beach. Also in the suds are sharks, skates, black drum, and a few kingfish. Mathew Barfield of <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Pittsville</st1:city>, <st1:state w:st="on"><acronym title="Maryland">Md</acronym>.</st1:state></st1:place> caught a 47 inch striper from Assateague. Red drum are being hooked at the barrier islands. Depending on who you talk with, flounder are plentiful. Bill Walsh won the MSSA Flounder Tournament with a 26 inch 6.79 pound flounder. Earlier in the week Jeff Haas came in with a 22 inch 3.555 pound flounder. Robert Houser, Jr. weighted in two sea bass that he caught on the Morning Star. The fish were sized at 22 ½ inches and 23 ¼ inches. Devin Fernandez’s luck is holding. He caught two more stripers at <st1:place w:st="on">Indian River</st1:place> this week. They were 33 inches and 35 inches.

Harbor Tackle has fresh bunker, live peelers, live minnows, live chowder clams, live black saltys, live eels, and live green crabs.

Harbor Tackle Fishing Report May 29, 2009

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p> </o:p>

50+ inch stripers caught in the suds this week along with black drum, sharks, skates, kingfish, and blues. Legal flounder have been somewhat elusive and the blues have shown up. Lots of shad have been caught in the Inlet and around the Rt. 50 Bridge. Some legal stripers have been taken at the Rt. 50 Bridge. Tog are hitting good in the usual places.
