Bluefish caught on modified mullet rig from Diamond State Tackle

The wind has been ridiculous the past few days, well, mostly for the past month.  When it isn’t pouring rain, the trees are raining leaves.  The autumn colors look great, the nights are crisp, and the days when the sun is out are decent, especially if you can get out of the wind.  Today was no exception to windy surf, and choppy seas.  Hopefully tomorrow will be calmer, until Sunday when it cranks back up.   Today was roughly fourteen mph winds, and tomorrow should be about the same or calmer.  Sunday it will be over twenty mph.  The water at the point looks like shaken Yoo Hoo, the beaches further south are like a heavy latte, stirred not shaken.

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.
