Fresh bunker update - finally found some after three days of looking. We will have fresh bunker by about 11am on Friday.

The stripers are coming! The stripers are coming! Big fish reported in Cape May and in the mouth of the Delaware bay.

Boaters are reporting plenty of shorty stripers in the Indian River Inlet. A few keepers in the mix.

Pretty weather forecasted this week. We will be open Thanksgiving Day 6am - Noon.

Windy weather has made fresh bunker tough to come by but we hope to get some in Tuesday.

Just had a report of shorty stripers (14-23 inches) in the rough surf across from the store. Taking 8 ounces to hold but letting 4 ounces bounce down the beach was more effective. Cut mullet.

Nov 17 -

Pending New Delaware State Record Bluefish caught yesterday- 24.8 pounds. Taken on the Katydid out of Lewes on the Del-Mar-Jersey land reef.

Reports of good action on small blues and short stripers on the incoming tide in the Inlet this morning.

The big news over the weekend is that a few nice stripers were taken on the troll just off Bethany Beach. Saw one pic of a 44 pounder caught on a Stretch.

The 40 foot lump and the outfall pipe will be popular spots off Bethany/Sea Colony.

Plenty of short stripers in the Inlet along with small blues. Bucktails, flies and plugs are all productive.

Small tautog in the Inlet with just a few keepers in the mix.

Sharks and skates on the beach.

The way the weather is acting fishing should last in the December if not the new year.

Notice: Tautog season reopened in Delaware on Tuesday Sept 29. Five fish 15 inches. We have live green crabs.
