>> Ok everyone, its crunch time!!! Let's show these troops how thankful we are for their service to our Country. We have 94 troops signed up, we want 120!! There are 38 boats to take them out. Right now, we have 10 open spots on these vessels.
We also have 15 kayaks, thanks to DE Paddlesports, on Rt. 1 right by WaWa, and room for 15 more hardy troops on the kayaks (lots of fun) available for our troops to use, that no one has signed up for yet. Guided fishing tour.
Help us say: ONE. SIMPLE THANKS!

>> Rodney Jones, "Fish Whisperer Charters" writes on Facebook: "Jerry's Paving put 7 flounder in the box under some tuff conditions Sunday including a. 5 1/2 pounder caught by Mark Stinson.....Also had a handful of throwbacks and some big shark! Fish on !"
>> Captain Bob Trowbridge, "Captain's Lady Charters" is still sailing, and this past weekend had some great trips with catches of flounder, sea bass and triggers!"
>> Bill Weiss, Milford, caught an assortment of blues and kingfish today at Conquest Rd on cut mullet.
>> "Hey Bill Jr, its Tim Han. (Chantilly,VA) Hope your doing well. I was at the pier the other night, the flounder bite was pretty good. I caught one keeper at 16.5" and lost a huge flattie while bringing it up over the pier. My guess is close to 21". I did catch about 8 throwbacks too on Gulp/minnow combo. The bite was slow on croakers and spots, but I did catch a whiting and kingfish on bloodworms too. I will see you soon when tog season opens up shortly. Thanks again for the minnows and tackle that I always buy from your place!! BTW, it was a beautiful night at the pier too..."
>> Ryan Henry & Kyle Trice, Millsboro area, caught around 50-60 blues with 10-12 keepers and one flounder which just fell short at 15 1/2. They both used fresh mullet from Bills.
>> Fishing Report by Sue Foster, Oyster Bay Tackle, OC amd Fenwick "The water temp is 70.5...80 degree weekend and the fish were biting! Fishing this week was excellent on flounder in the bay. The flounder must be moving out of the bay as anglers are catching them right close to the Route 50 Bridge, Oceanic Pier, and the Bulkhead at 2nd thru 4th Street. 9th Street Pier has also been good. Snapper blues and some short stripers were reported from the surf. Nothing large, but anglers were having a good time. Tautog are starting to bite in Ocean City though not too many people were fishing for them. Offshore the news is still nice flounder.
>> With cooler fall temperatures arriving, there’s still time to take advantage of the fine fishing weather to take that great photo and enter it in DNREC’s Division of Fish and Wildlife 2014 Delaware Fishing Photo Contest. Deadline for entries is Wednesday, Oct. 15. The winning photo will be featured on the cover or inside of the 2015 Delaware Fishing Guide to be published early next year.
