Great White Shark Betsy Visits Delaware Beaches

Great White shark Betsy tagged by OCEARCH shows up off our coast on November 21st

Yesterday the great white shark Betsy tagged by the OCEARCH organization pinged off of Henlopen acres.  Then she pinged off of Delaware Seashore State Park, and eventually 3Rs beach.  Now she is back out to sea.  Ever since people started tracking these sharks online it makes you wonder how many more are always out there, not just these few we can follow.  In case you are wondering why she would come so close to shore, seals starting showing up last week, great whites hunt and  eat seals.  I am just hoping Betsy did not scare every fish for miles away from the surf.  We also have a small Mako and Tiger shark that have been tracked near Delaware but not as close as Betsy when she visited yesterday.  Remember when Septima popped up in the Isle Of Wight bay this summer?

As enacted by the Delaware General Assembly, passed in the FY15 Bond and Capital Improvement Act (HB 425), the division is seeking input on the proposal through three public open houses in December – one in each county.

This fishing report is brought to you by Techno Goober in Lewes, DE.  They are the best in the business for all your web service needs.  It is ridiculous cold out today in the twenties.  The thermometer is hiding under the house and won’t come out till spring.  After the weekend we will be back in the 60’s I’m going to explode from temperature fluctuations.  Monday I had a meeting with the Techno Goober crew, and all the while I am watching it rain sideways, thinking today would be a good day to go striped bass fishing.  Corby called and said I am grabbing a few rods and headed that way soon, where do you want to fish?  I figured the point would be decent we weren’t getting away from the rain.

Over the weekend Jim Bell and his Uncle were fishing and a small seal popped up next to them while they were at the haystacks, or ice breakers.  They said it gave them a bit of a show, managed one picture, then the seal dove, and never popped back up again.  From the picture it is obviously a seal, but hard to tell if a harbor or grey, and is most likely a pup.  Eventually there will be many more here all over the outer wall, inner wall, and ice breakers.  It will look like a party out there.  There are a few that hang out at Masseys Landing every year.  Be wary of them in the water if you see them while boating.  They look like a small dog in the water, and no, you do not want to pet them.  In fact in Delaware there is a law that keeps people at least 150 feet away from seals.
