Zack Pillarelli caught this striped bass shorty on bunker at 3Rs Sunday.
Well first it was cold and we were all like, this is horrible, then it hit seventy degrees and we were all like, it’s too hot. Now it is gale force winds, raining and the waves are gi-mungous. The fishing has been very random for keepers from boat and especially the surf. Basically non existent for the surf, and we have been trying. I met up with Ben Smith this weekend our striped bass state record holder. Read more ›

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.

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? Read more ›
