As you read in the past report, Morty, Andy, And Myself with a freind all fished North of <ACRONYM title="Indian River Inlet"><ACRONYM title="Indian River Inlet"><ACRONYM title="Indian River Inlet"><ACRONYM title="Indian River Inlet">IRI</ACRONYM></ACRONYM></ACRONYM></ACRONYM> on Friday night. We caught some nice sharks. Finnatic was the first to leave then Andy packed up to head to the pier for some flounder. You will have to let me know how you did. Well shortly after they left I had layed back in my seat and grabbed a little shut eye. That is when my buddy woke me up to tell me that our big stick was screaming. About an hour later we landed this nice shark. After that we were beat and headed home. Andy, I also have some nice pictures of yours if you need them. Headed back to the beach on Sunday morning and struck gold with the kingfish. Loaded a half of cooler of them then started with the bluefish. Tried sharkin for a little while but only came up with with a couple of rays that my son had caught. really good day otherwise. Until next report, good fishing.

We left work yesterday and hit the sand for a few hours in the evening. Caught some nice bluefish on mullet rigs and threw out a couple shark poles. The southeast wind must have pushed some of these fish in. Within one hour we had 4' sand tiger, 3.5' hammerhead, and lost three others. As night approached the bite slowed up and we didn't hang around. Go get them, they are out there.

I am seeing lots of reports of smallish (for a hammerhead) in our surf. I looked back a couple years and either no one was reporting them or they are just showing up for some reason.

I think its only a very short matter of time until someone pulls a monster hammerhead out of the surf on the delmarva coast.

Fished north of the inlet today. I got a 16' Stinger in the surf.

The poor guys was adrift and beached the boat just north of me. The boat took a beating and almost seperated the top mold from the bottom mold.

I tied my tow rope to the bow cleat to keep the bow to the surf and try to keep her from breaking up as well.

Tow company came, dragged her up a little further with a backhoe and put her on a trailer.

Nice catch with the Stinger. You just don't catch those every day. What bait did you use or were you chumming? :icon_pirat: Glad no one was hurt. Nice sunset pict's as well. I really need to relocate my work closer to the beach. Thats part of my 2 year plan.

Went to the only beach opened in Delaware today. Had a great time catching plenty of fish. Blues, spot, kings and flounder were plentiful in the surf. The largest flounder was 17", but they put up a great fight.

Tried to do a little sharking. I had a big bait out all day. Nothing touched it, but crabs. Not one shark.:angry3:

Destiny and I headed out for a little quality time before school starts back up. We busted the blues like crazy. There was schools of Shiners up and down the beach all day, being torn up by blues. Everytime they came by, we had a little something for them. We burned them up on stingsilvers.

Cut spot on a T&B rig worked well too. No spot, croakers or kingies tho. Just before dusk, the blitz was on.:icon_pirat:

Chris and I finished some work in Dewey and headed out to the surf for a bit. Nothing much was going on and I was surprised with the lack of action, because Monday it was on.

About an hour after we moved to another spot, all heck broke loose. There was huge fish thrashing the shiners just off the beach. Some were even in the surf. I said to Chris some looked like Spanish, he agreed.

The fish were in the 30+" range and the blitz lasted about 1/2 hour. There was 4 guys casting into the mix. All of us never landed a fish. Thats right NADA. We all got wiffed. We threw everything from stingsilvers to hopkins to gators to surface poppers and nothing.

It has been a long time since I have seena blitz like that and I have seen many. I have never worked so hard and got nothing. I got 3 hits and never hooked up. What a sight to hehold, let me tell you. I cannot descibe in words what I saw today. AMAZING

We did get bluefish, but the largest was only 16" and came on cut bait. Nothing like the monsters we saw thrashing in the surf today. I did manage to land a nice 5' Sandbar and almost got spooled, brfore the line broke.

Whew....that gets me excited.

I wonder, in that situation, if you had netted some of the bait in the wash that they were eating...if you could've hooked up??

When theres soo much natural forage around...its hard to get them to bite:dontknow: whats not the real deal.

I would've finally had a use for that big weighted trebble hook I carry in my tackle box for no reason !! LOL !!!!

That had to be cool to watch that, but frustrating at the same time.....I would've gone crazy....

Always wondered how bow fishing got started.......think I have an idea now.:icon_thumright:

It drove me nuts, like Finn said we threw or arms off and they wouldn't hit a thing:cussing::cussing:The last time I seen a blitz like that it was in Hatteras but we caught those fish. As soon as this weather is out of here I'm after them again!!
