Solar Eclipse of October 2014

Eclipse shot in Ocean City last year … shot by Cameron McVeigh Designs.

The new moon will pass between the earth and the sun on Thursday evening the 23rd of October.  Much of North America will be able to witness the solar eclipse.  The question is how well and when will we be able to see this in Delaware.  According to charts from NASA, it will begin just as the sun is dropping below the horizon (6:15 pm) in Delaware.  Most of North America will be able to see upwards of forty percent of the sun blocked by the passing moon. We (Delaware) may be able to just see the beginning, and then the sun will be out of view. Read more ›

Monday morning I woke up and there was frost on the vehicles.  I was supposed to meet Scott Jost, John Masten, and Ed Borys to go tautog fishing at the inner wall on Scott’s boat the Minn-OH-Pauz.  I had to cancel due to some work that came up over the weekend (story of my life).  A few hours later the phone rang and it was Scott, “Hey check your messages I sent you some pictures of a deer on the inner wall”.  I told him he was crazy and taking bucktailing to a whole new level.  The pictures were grainy but you could tell it was a deer on the inner wall, that was too cool and no buck-tale.

What to expect this weekend in the surf

 

stargazer, 3Rs beach, delaware seashore state park, sand fleas,

Derrick Calloway caught this stargazer on sand fleas at 3Rs beach the other day

Leaves are falling and trees are turning colors.  The driveway is under a blanket of fresh leaves, and it is the perfect time to rake them up, but as usual I will blow that off and go fishing instead.  Then after a good three or four rains and the leaves have all packed together, I will cuss them and myself for waiting that long.  This happens every year, sound familiar?  Yup fall is definitely here when the leaves gather on the ground, blow across the yards, and fill in those hard to reach places on the front porch.  The fish are moving around more and they do not have to care for leaves and such.  Mostly they only care about when they are leaving with the fall migration, which has yet to even begin so don’t get excited just yet.

WHITE CLAY CREEK (Oct. 16, 2014) – The Fisheries Section of the Delaware Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today that White Clay Creek has received its annual fall stocking of trout. Fall stockings have occurred at White Clay Creek since 2007.

DNREC Fisheries staff, along with volunteer help, stocked about 1,000 pounds of rainbow trout throughout White Clay Creek at all normal stocking locations from near the border with Pennsylvania downstream to Newark. Volunteers used float boxes to carry about 800 fish weighing about 1.25 pounds each from the truck access points along White Clay Creek, which offers the most public access of any Delaware trout stream.
