Short stripers are still being landed in the surf on clams and sandfleas. Kingfish are starting to show up in greater numbers and size. Blues are on and off again. Flounder are in the surf but you have to put your time in. Some trout have been caught in the Broadkill River, but not many.

Sandbars and rays are making thier presence known. It won't be long before the Sandtigers are in the surf, doing their thing.

Most of all have a great time and take a kid fishing.:icon_wink:

Well the three day weekend comes along once every six weeks. So off I went to the Delaware Beaches for Fathers Day Weekend. Friday during the day, fished south end of 3r's 11-6. One large skate that helped unhook himself as I was dragging him out of the wash.........well at least the hook didn't get me, just a little tatto on the belly from the sinker....OUCH! Skates & doggies was it for me, and everyone else I saw.

Saturday same old thing till the storms chased me off the beach late am. (Above Indian River this time) Oh well had a great lunch and dinner Saturday, and then caught a favorite musician at night in Dewey...... May try a return trip next Sunday/Monday...... If we can get out of this wet weather pattern......

Hope someone had a better catchin weekend than me!

Chris and I worked in Dewey today. We took our routine walk out to the beach to check out the water and the wildlife. We saw 3 different schools of bait being torn to shreads by something. probably blues, but it was good to see a little action off the surf.

The action on the surf was pretty good too.

OK, I haven't been out for a bit and needed a quick fix. I decided to go to CHSP Pier. People were burning the spot up on bloodworms and Fishbytes.

I was using a tandem jig rig and got 8 flounder up to 18", but no keepers. I did see some butterfly rays cruising the pilings. The croud was thick, but thinned as dark fell upon the pier.

Hook,

I am tying up a tandem jig rig. The jigheads are 1/4oz white and using 4" Gulp mullet. The white is working the best, but try the chartruese as well. I jig around the pilings, but have gotten some on the edge of the shadows on the water under the lights.

Fished CHSP Pier on Sat night. I must have caught over 25 flounder with no keepers. Used the same set up as before, but was using green and a white Gulp Porgy.

Saw a few nice stripers swimming on the surface as well. Threw some lures with no success.

Went out this past weekend. Caught several blue fish about 14 inches with mullet and cut spot. Caught a bunch of spot and one skate. Kayak out about 200 yards with some bunker and landed a 5ft Dusky (at least I think).
