> >From Facebook: “‘Cool’ Yul Benner boated the blackfish of a lifetime while togging a Delaware Bay reef site aboard the Angler, with Captain Ted Moulinier. The 20.0 pound, 32 inch long behemoth ate a green crab, and put Yul comfortably in First Place of the 2013 Lewes Harbour Marina Tog Tournament. Think, if he was a subscriber (to The Fisherman Mag) he would be sitting pretty in the Dream Boat Challenge. –CL”

>> Sue Foster. Oyster Bay Tackle, OC, sent us her report from south of the IRI: “Water Temp is 61.7. The tautog bite is hot! We had a great flounder bite in the bay, but it might be slowing down? Only time will tell... A couple nice stripers were weighed in at Oyster Bay Tackle by an angler casting live eels beneath the Route 50 Bridge. We had some snapper blues, puppy drum, and short stripers in the surf. Lots of skates on Saturday! Sea bass is now open offshore. The first fishable day was great fishing for the Morning Star.”
Delaware issues updated fish consumption advisory
Updated advisory for the tidal Delaware River reflects long-term environmental improvements
DOVER (Oct. 23, 2013) – The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and the Department of Health and Social Services’ Division of Public Health today updated the fish consumption advisory for fish caught in the tidal Delaware River. The updated advisory is a result of analysis of chemical contaminants in fish caught in the tidal Delaware River and elsewhere throughout the state. The change reflects long-term environmental improvements in the tidal Delaware River.
The fish consumption advisory for the tidal Delaware River from the Delaware/Pennsylvania/New Jersey border to the C&D Canal has been updated to a less restrictive advisory due to falling levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins and furans, chlorinated pesticides, and mercury. For the general adult population, the current advice has been changed from “eat no finfish caught in the tidal Delaware River north of the C&D Canal” to “eat no more than one eight ounce meal of finfish per year,” while retaining the “do not eat” advice for women of childbearing age and young children. This advisory is being issued today in collaboration with the New Jersey Toxics in Biota Committee and the Delaware River Basin Commission.
