We have had some foggy weather the past few days. It’s not rare to see fog this time of year especially when the ocean is still as chilly as it is, and the last few days have started off really foggy. The closer you are to the beach the more noticeable it is, but it’s been extensive with the cool daytime temps. The fog has burned off today to reveal beautiful sunshine and the temperatures look to warm over the coming days so it shouldn’t be as much of an issue.
There has been some pretty good surf fishing over the past few weeks, especially from Assateague Island and the Delaware beaches. Anglers using cut or fresh bait have been having luck with bluefish and anglers using clams or sand fleas have been catching some pretty nice black drum. Matt at Fenwick Tackle sent a couple of photos of some anglers having luck on the beach the past few days. Mason, Neil and Jackson Hallowell had a great day with the black drum on the DE drive on beach when they caught these three beauties on clams.
John Grove, Damian Jorss, and Ali Grove caugth these black drum on clam baits while the bluefish was caught on cut bunker. Also submitted by Matt at Fenwick Tackle.
Captian Jeff Coats and wife Karen had another good day fishing Drawing Channel in Wachapreague, VA when they caught several throwback flounder and three nice sized keeper fish on live minnows.
Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing has been having great luck bowfishing the Nanticoke River lately. Last night it was some big needle nosed gar for some lucky shooters.
