>> “I stopped in … to get set up with a Delaware boat license so I could learn to fish Rehoboth Bay and IRI during a short mid-week vacation in Dewey Beach. Being from Georgia, I didn't know the local baits, rigs, tides, etc. The staff at Bill's got me all taken care of with a boat license, baits, terminal tackle, etc. and a suggestion of a marina to ask about a slip.
>> Got in fishing on three days, mostly between Massey's, the Coast Guard Station and the ditch near the red roof house. Caught my first keeper flounder ever (17 1/2", along with 13 shorts, released my first two weakfish ever (11" & 14") and a few croakers, sea bass and snapper bluefish. Thanks so much for helping out a fisherman who has been transplanted 800 miles from home and is trying to learn the local waters. The help I received made my first trip successful enough to make me excited to try again soon. Dave Sipsy, West Chester, Pa.
>> Cust just came in from the Haystacks and said he was catching sharks, blowfish, sea robins and a couple of small seabass. He said the water temp was high and flounder must have moved out to deeper water.
>> Southeast of B buoy, a customer ran into a lots of peanut dolphins.
