That Time of Year

 Summer is winding down and the persistent east wind of September is blowing. There are seven tropical systems on the map. There is also a lot of fish around and you can't get to them, The back bays are the best choice now. Better days are coming.

Old Time Fishing

Eugene and the crew from NY were down for some chunking on the inshore lumps. While they did not raise any tuna, they had plenty of bonito and albacore. They also had sharks. mackeral, mahi and other exotics in the slick. Lots of fun like the old days.

Crab Cakes and Clam Chowder

 This area is known for the bounty of the bay. Blowfish are biting and anglers usually top of their trips with some clams and blue claw crabs. I would be out looking for them if I could, but was happy to accept some tasty donations.

Tropical Storms

Tropical storm Fay passed by with some wind and rain, but the cool part was the eye passing right over us. For about twenty minuets the sun came out, the sky turned blue and it was calm until the rain and wind returned for the rest of the day. The next storm, Iasias was a wind storm. It came up the Chesapeake bay and Delaware river and dumped loads of rain inland. At the coast, we had all the wind you could handle, 109 mph out on the island. When the fourth tornado warning came on the tv, the power went out. We were lucky, as it came back after twelve hours. Many people are still waiting and I wish them all the best as you don't realize how much you rely on it.

Fishing News

I can't report much because I can't catch anything looking out into the woods. If it is nice I will sit out front in the evenings trying to catch a breeze. One local angler had some fluke and a weakfish off his jet ski. We'll just call him "Capt Candy bar". Hot summer days and typical fishing.

Fluke in the Rivers

Seems like a few nice fluke are being caught in the ocean, but the better fishing is in the backwaters. Capt Tim had another limit today fishing from his skiff and we are having Capt Andy's Portugeuse style fluke for dinner.
