Nothing says "where are the fish and what are they biting on" like getting reports from our customers and charter boats:
>> Received an email from Bill Vernon, Jr., Hertrich's Toyota: "Fished on the "Four Play" Sunday with Capt Steve and got a yellowfin and a white marlin. Sara Tuck from Lewes was the angler on the white marlin and it was her 1st. Fish was caught in 70 fathoms of the Baltimore on a skirted ballyhoo."
>> Adam Hartzell, Lebanon PA, fishing the CHSP Pier, caught a 22", 3.50# flounder on a minnow.
>> Fred Robinson, Bear DE, weighed in a citation king fish at 1.20# caught on bloodworms at Three R's Rd.
>> Jeremy and Scott Keller, Milton, caught a 1.30# trout and 5 flounder up to 3.25# (caught by Jeremy) on spot at IRI.
>> John, Preston, MD gave us a call from Three R's Rd. to let us know he was catching blues 12 to14" on whole mullet rigs.
>> Sue Foster, Oyster Bay Tackle, OC, keeps us informed of news from the south: "Water Temp: 78.3 - Flounder fishing was excellent with lots of picture snapping going on at Oyster Bay Tackle! A few keeper sea trout were reported. Surf fishing was
typical summer fishing with sharks, skates, rays and a few kingfish, spot, sea trout and snapper blues. Offshore fishing was good on big eye tuna. Yellowfins were still about. Bluefin moved in around the Hot Dog. Closer inshore, sea bass are biting offshore mixed with some nice flounder. More croaker in the Delaware Bay."
> >From Captain Cary Evans "Grizzley Sport Fishing Charters", Fishermans Wharf in Lewes: "It has been a busy two weeks for us and fortunately the fish have cooperated. We have done well offshore with both the yellowfin and bluefin tuna on the daytime chunk. Flounder fishing has picked up both in the bay and the ocean as well and should provide good catches through September. Croakers have also finally arrived in the Delaware Bay. This is just in time for those family half day trips with the kids. The inshore shark fishery has also been a good producer as well. This is an all release fishery but it's a lot of fun releasing big sharks. Thanks to all that have joined us we look foward to fishing with you again. We still have plenty of days available this summer so give us a call to get out. Remember to take the kids fishing! "

There is no limit to the number of anglers, lines or teasers. IGFA rules apply except a fish may be hooked by someone other than the angler provided the rod is immediately passed off to the angler who will then fight the fish until it is boated or released.
