Date: 2/19/13




18388 Coastal Highway

Lewes, De. 19958




Hope this finds everyone in good health and looking forward to a great season.

Thought we should touch base on some items of interest.

Our annual Flea Market will be held Saturday, April 6 at 5 AM. There is no charge to set up. It will be held on our parking lot. Please use only one space so we can have enough room for customers and other anglers. This flea market is for folks trying to get rid of fishing and boating "stuff" they no longer need or want. It is not for dealers. Remember, one man's trash is another man's treasure. It is a good time to turn your unwanted gear into cash and to purchase fishing equipment on your wish list.

The on-air radio fishing report will resume April 1st at about 7:10 every day on WGMD,92.7FM.and can be accessed on our web site www.billssportshop.com. Bill makes a fresh report daily and is always up to date on regulations and of course fishing news. Also Bill has a sports talk and fishing show on Friday from 5PM to 6PM, Saturday 11AM to 12PM and Sunday 11AM to 12PM, call on air at 302-945-9292.

Bill sits on the Boards of the following committees: RFFAC (Recreational Fishing Funds Advisory Council), WUPIC (Water Use Program Implementation Committee)which is currently working on the dredging of Massey‘s Landing, CIB {Center for the Inland Bays) and Tiger Team Aquaculture and Oyster Harvesting in our Inland Bays.

> >From Bill Baker Jr: Sunday I attended the winter meeting of “The Tog Angler’s Association of Massey’s Landing.” This is comprised of a bunch of guys and gals that fish there during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons. The soda and the O’Douls were flowing and pizza was disappearing quickly. Had a great time seeing the guys again, despite the cold weather, and the flurries outside! I learned that Terry was still fishing there and was still catching Tog! He also lost a good sized striper earlier in the month. Can’t wait till the warmer weather!

>> Mike Maney caught tog on the “Morning Star” to 27” and 15.1#.

>> James Jones III, Milton, caught a citation crappie using a jig at Millsboro Pond.

>> CJ is reporting in that yellow perch are showing up "big time" at Round Pole Bridge, and huge crappie at the spillway in Milton and also by the Library. He says all crappie are citation size! Go get 'em!


>> The National Marine Fishing Service is proposing an 8’ nose to fork of tail for all shark species. This does not include smooth and spiny dogfish.

>> Flounder tba but it will possibly be a reduction in size and an all year season.

>> Sea Bass will open May 19th for the remainder of 2013 and it will be 12 1/2” and 25 per angler per day.

>> A trout stamp is required to fish in Dover’s Tidbury Pond and Greenwood’s Newton Pond from the first Saturday in March through April 1, unless otherwise exempted by law.

No fishing is permitted at these two ponds for 14 days prior to the season opening.

The 2013 freshwater trout season for these two ponds will open at 7 a.m. on Saturday, March 2. Following the season opener, trout fishing at these ponds is permitted one half hour before sunrise to one half hour after sunset, unless otherwise restricted by area rules.

The daily possession limit is six trout.

For more information on Delaware fishing regulations, please check the 2013 Delaware Fishing Guide, available and online at "http://www.fw.delaware.gov/fisheries" and at fishing license agents throughout the state, or call the Fisheries Section at 302-739-9914.

DNREC has started a Delaware Bay Initiative and for the information on this click on this link: Delaware Bayshore initiative: http://www.carper.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/pressreleases?ID=d393a8c4-00b0-4bd1-8408-aae2c3ff754e"

Of special interest to all of us is the push for National Parks in Delaware. I urge all of you to visit the NPS web site and research how it has affected Chincoteague and North Carolina surf fishermen.
