>> Tiss the Season! What shall I get my husband, wife, son, daughter and my case grandchildren for Christmas? I have the answer. As I help people with their choices and they pay for their purchases with a Gift Card they are so happy they could get what they finally want and really appreciate the gift. The only day in the year we are closed is Christmas day giving people plenty of time to brouse. Some use their Gifts Cards during the year for bait and terminal tackle. It's a great way to please the fisherperson in the family.
Just a few ideas for gifts: Salt Life Clothing, decals. Stretch 25, Blue Water Striper Candy, Storm Lures and Crabbing Supplies, We have plenty of rods. reels, hooks terminal tackle and lots of stocking stuffers.
>> We at Bills Sport Shop are an official drop off store for your boxes of cookies. They must be dropped off here by December 5th,2015
Every year before Christmas, we send home baked goods to our Troops serving overseas to show our support!! God bless our Troops! Thanks Judy and Paul Mangini for all your efforts for our Military. http://operationcookiedropoff.com/

Big thanks to Lewes harbour Marina for sharing this and all the other info they get out to us anglers.

Talk about a heartbreaker. Matt Fetters released this 43 7/8 inch trophy that fell just shy of the slot size while trolling a Stretch plug southeast of the Eights today. Pretty work! You can catch her again next year.

Sea bass took it on the chin again today at the hands of fish slayers, the Falgowski family. Captain Evan ran their 'Regulator' to Del-Jersey Land, where he put his crew on some serious meat.
>> Jumbo bluefish have been roaming Del Jersey Land, picking off sea bass being wound in by bottom fishermen. That's what happened to Andrew Schneider. This 18.6 pound alligator grabbed a bass Andrew was bringing in, and the big slammer became hooked up too.
>> No doubt about it, Joe, Robert, Michael and Dave definitely earned their tautog today. Conditions were quite crappy on the Brown Shoal reef sites, but these diehard toggers stuck it out, and ended up with a fine catch.

We had reports of quite a few short stripers caught in the Ocean City surf on lures and finger mullet. The winter migration of big stripers has not reached us yet. The stripers action off Cape May is red hot. The sea bass fishing around the wrecks and artificial reefs has been very good when the weather permits.
