>> The Pier at Cape Henlopen is a fun place to take the kids. Small croaker, spot, blues, kingfish, trout, sharks and some flounder were taken on the high tide at night on Gulp.
>> George Fradiska, York, Pa caught a 36”, 14.25# striper at IRI on eels.
>> Received an email from Captain Brandon aboard “My Sanity”: “Nothing real exciting to report but a day of catching fish is a better day than being skunked and even better day of working. Clint Ferguson, Todd Eberly, and myself managed to pick 12 croaker in the Delaware Bay on Sunday on the incoming tide. They were all small ranging from 7.5-9.5 and they were rather delicate hitters on the hook. All fish were caught on clams from Bills Sport Shop.”
>> Chunking butterfish at the Hot Dog, Amber Kelly, Brett Glatfelter Pam Cunningham and Scott Cunningham went 6 for 6 on yellowfin, including a double header - total stringer weight 290# - aboard the “Foolish Pleasures” with Captain Dale Lisi.
>> Leah Hess caught her first flounder, four total, with a 20” keeper. Leah was fishing with her dad, Gary, at marker 25 and 27 by Massey’s. She caught them on a spec rig and Gulp.
>> Chuck Nagle from Bill’s Sport Shop caught two flounder at 19” at Massey’s Landing.
>> Croakers are being pulled over the rails at Massey’s. Jim Mooney and son from Phoenixville caught lots of fish, but only a few keepers.
>> Fishing Report by Sue Foster, Oyster Bay Tackle: “Water Temp: 75.4
Flounder fishing was good once again except for those couple days of wind
and rain. We saw several nice ones at Oyster Bay Tackle! Oceanic Pier
continued to see good flounder and spot fishing. Surf fishing picked up a
bit on kingfish and snapper blues for anglers willing to get up early in the
morning. Offshore fishing was good on tuna. Closer inshore, sea bass are
biting offshore mixed with good catches of flounder. I caught myself a six
pounder on the Morning Star on Tuesday! Croaker and flounder in the
Delaware Bay. All kinds of weird fish reported in the warm water!”
39th Annual White Marlin Open
Anyone may fish in the 39th Annual White Marlin Open, August 6-10, 2012. To enter, you must either; (a) officially register a boat, and/or (b) be registered as an angler on an officially registered boat, prior to fishing. The White Marlin Open is an event that can be fun and exciting for the spectators as well as the anglers. All fish must be weighed on the official scale at Harbour Island, (14th Street and the Bay), and the weigh-ins are held there each day of the tournament from 4:00 to 9:15 PM and are open to the public free of charge. As the week goes on, the suspense builds, as potential lottery sized fortunes change hands with a tip of the scale. It’s a terrific way to spend a few exciting hours during your Ocean City vacation. There is no parking available at Harbour Island, but there is ample parking within a few block walk. The Presbyterian Church on 14th Street, just a block away offers parking for a small donation. There will also be a “Park and Ride Shuttle Service” offered from the Convention Center
MID ATLANTIC 500,000
The tournament kicks off with Registration, Calcutta Entries and the Welcome Cocktail Party followed by a brief Captain’s Meeting at both host marinas on Sunday, August 19. From Monday, August 20 through Friday, August 24, participants will select three fishing days from the five available. As always, Canyon Club Resort Marina will serve as the event’s host marina in Cape May and Sunset Marina will host participants who elect to sail from Ocean City, Maryland, the tournament’s only satellite port. Both marinas will again be providing full weigh in capabilities for all five tournament species. As always to keep the boundaries fair for all participants all boats from either port must fish within 125 miles of the Cape May Sea Buoy. 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.
