Bluefish galore with a side of flounder after the storm

Sea Glass and a sand dollar I found today while fishing. It will be a beach combers delight the next few days at low tide

Well the storm passed and it was not as bad as previous ones.  It did manage to carve the beaches up, and create some very pronounced cuts and sandbars.  I made a video today of a rip current at Conquest beach it is a good example of how they work and form.  I did a little fishing and found about ten pounds of sea glass, as well as a bag full of trash.  Never fails after a storm, the beaches can always use a cleaning.  I am going to start the beach clean ups after this coming weekend.  I have a busy schedule this Saturday and Sunday with guided tours and fishing lessons.  If you are out there try to pick up some extra trash, there is a recycling station at Tower Rd. Bay access and at Fresh Pond on the south side of the Charles W. Cullen bridge.  A lot of interesting things washed up on shore since the storm. Read more ›

The surf at Conquest Beach today

In case you haven’t noticed it has been ridiculously windy today, more so than it has been all week.  We can expect to see more wind throughout the night and a bit of rain.  First Nor’easter for the fall season.  It is a warm front that is about the only good news so the temperatures will warm up for a bit.  Wait, what?  That isn’t good news we want cooler temperatures and fall fish.  You can try the surf in the next few days but the winds are predicted to be gale force until Thursday evening.  The best day for calmer seas will be Sunday according tot he folks at NOAA.   I dropped by Delaware Seashore State Park and checked out Conquest Beach after work this afternoon, and the seas were angry my friends, and that old man is still waiting for his soup!  You can see a video here of the the surf today.

Fall out of summer fishing

Burr fish or spiny boxfish caught by the Baldwins

Rough seas and heavy winds have made for some harder fishing in the surf, but we have been catching fish.  Definitely reminds you of fall fishing, and the fish seem to be anticipating the temperature change.  This is the time of year when summer fish and fall fish are in our waters at the same time.  We have seen spiny box fish or burr fish in the surf and a snowy grouper was caught in Rehoboth Bay over the weekend.  Tropical fish from the gulf will make their way up the coast following water temperatures and food as the warm gulf stream travels up the east coast.  You never know what kind of tropical fish will travel into our waters, last year a few gag groupers were caught near Masseys Landing.  Pompano always makes an appearance late in the summer, they were early this year, as well as lizard fish.  I haven’t seen too many lizard fish this year, but they have been in the back bays as far up as north Jersey and Long Island sound.  You would be surprised what kind of tropical fish will make it up this far and beyond.   Read more ›
