Brad and the boys are surf fishing Beach Plum Island, as I type this report. Tight lines and screaming reels tonight boys, call if you need something. I have too many things to do tonight and tomorrow, sleep might be good in between. Then again I may just go back. I met Brad and the boys on 3R’s beach today. The surf is rough, and that is a passive description. the waves at 3R’s are coming in 6-8 feet tall, and the “wash” is wide. The picture is a much better description. The big sets of 3 that always hit the beaches are huge and pound the surf. Many were surf fishing, I saw no catching. Honestly, dragging fish through the waves and wash is a chore. There is a serious chance of retrieving a “cleaned” fish from a wave’s pounding. Brad tried kayaking out some bait, and well, I just hope the video comes out, WOW! Sue text and said that Cape Henlopen’s Herring Point Beach was a little calmer. We packed it up and headed to Dewey Bull for a serious pit beef recharge and regrouping.
The boys wanted to kayak out some bait on calmer seas. I took them to Beach Plum Island and they set up their gear. We will see them in the morning for a report. I did hit Massey’s Landing earlier today, there is a courtesy boat safety check by the Coast Guard Auxiliary this weekend. Threw some metals and chatted with a few folks. Blue fish have been running the ditch on the incoming tides, was the consensus. The 30 mph winds were my deterrent today. Sorry gang, I wish I could control the weather, or maybe we should all work weekends and take off during the week. Oh wait …
