Kind of a weird weather day here on DelMarVa.  This morning started off with patchy fog (my son actually had a one hour school delay), but this afternoon was absolutely beautiful.  There were light winds all day which meant some of the offshore and ocean party boat fleet was able to get out, and this afternoon there were several boats on the bay and they were murdering the bluefish.

The biggest news of the day, and I mean that literally, was the thresher shark brought in by Captain Todd Kurtz and the crew of the Restless Lady out of the Talbot Street pier.  Restless Lady caught the big shark in 30 fathoms on a mackerel filet and reports that it put on a great show jumping several times.  When they hit the dock this afternoon at 3 PM the big fish tipped the scale out at 495 pounds.  That’s the biggest shark I’ve seen so far this year and will be awesome eats for the crew.

The crew of the Talkin’ Trash with Captain Chris Little did some sharking themselves this weekend and were rewarded with some good fishing.  The crew caught 12 blue sharks and one mako that were released and boxed this 116 pound mako.


Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star was out on the rip today doing some sea bassing and reported in that it was a beautiful day for watching a radar sweep…and catching some sea bass.  Jim of Stafford, VA and Doug of Lititz, PA are below with a couple of the nice sea bass caught aboard the Morning Star today.


Paul Lebling and Ayrton “The Kayak Kid” Pryor of the Spring Mix II fished the outgoing tide at the south jetty and had some luck.  The guys used spec rigs to catch 12 small stripers, 10 bluefish, 3 shad and a surprise sheepshead that weighed 6 pounds.

Nick Denny fished his kayak at the route 50 bridge today and smoked the “snapper” bluefish.  Nick literally filled his kayak with fish in the 2-4 pound range.
