> >Euisuk Jung of Lorton, Va., fished the IRI and pulled 13.02 lb sheepshead out of the rocks using speckled crabs.
> >Brian Dotterer fished the surf at Broadkill and caught tons of dogfish, skates, ling cod and a croaker.
> >Jeff Gardiner from wilmington, currently in third place in Bill's Striper Tournament brought in a 39.90 lb striper, vaulting him into first place. All together, the crew caught a 30.05 lb and a 28.80 lb striper. It certainly looks like the striper fishing is picking up and Jeff’s lead could be in jeopardy very shortly.
> >Tyler Smith, of Dover, caught a 35.7 lb 43 1/2" striper to knock himself out of 3rd and retake 3rd. He currently holds 2nd and 3rd place along with the 4th heaviest fish of the tournament.
> >Sue Foster, Oyster Bay Tackle, OC, posted the water temperature: 61.9°
and let us know that there was another good week of tautog fishing. Anglers in Ocean City will be allowed to keep 4 fish during the month of November. In DE, anglers can keep 10. Green crabs and sand fleas are the preferred baits. Surf fishing was slow. A few snapper blues were biting in the surf along with a few sharks and skates. We're all waiting for more stripers and bigger blues. Anglers are happy to have sea bass back open effective Nov 1st. There was some striper action on the Rt. 50 Bridge at night. Some stripers were reported at the Rt. 90 Bridge and there have been some sightings just offshore of Ocean City beaches but not much "catching". Stripers have begun their fall migration and anglers in the Delaware Bay are catching.
