Windy weekend Delaware surf fishing conditions

3R's Delaware Seashore State Park ... rough surf today

3R's Delaware Seashore State Park ... rough surf today

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 …

Fish On!!

About

I have been fishing since I could walk. My grandfather was an avid surf and deep sea fisherman. He taught us all to fish and we used to drive onto the beaches of Jersey when I was a young boy. I spent a lot of my earlier life fishing freshwater. I moved to this area in 2005 and I have been rekindling my experiences fishing saltwater ever since. I love fishing the surf and just about anywhere else the fish happen to be. I hope you find this site useful and informative. We put this blog together to help some friends to find good fishing information. Enjoy. Please post any info you feel we have missed or what you have been catching, where and what bait etc etc. We do not want Honey holes just public areas and in general location terms.
