Fishing Report

February 8th, 2016

Sunny and in the 60's. Fishing weather in January!
Not much to report on the fishing front. Somebody needs to go out and prove they are still here.

Until then... The next best thing to fishing is buying fishing tackle!

BRRRR! Windy and cold. Looks like a couple of 50 degree days coming on Friday and Saturday. Still have fish to the north of us.

No fresh bunker around.

Jan 11

Several reports out of Cape May last week that they had stripers on the beach and on the troll out to 1.5 miles on the beach.

Water temp is still in the mid 50's about 6-8 degrees warmer than usual. So there is still the possibility that these fish will slide across the Delaware Bay into Delaware waters.

Also, heard they still have stripers in mid Jersey around Island State Park with bluefish mixed in them. That tells you just how warm the water is and how far north the bait still is.

Until then - Big shad in the Inlet on saltwater flies.

Good tautog fishing on the offshore wrecks. Capt Scotty reported fish up to 11 pounds over the weekend. with 9 anglers catching 38 keeper sized fish.

Paul form New Castle weighed in two tautog over 9 pounds taken on the Katydid out of Lewes last week.
