Fish­ing ac­tion in Delaware re­mains quite good, although there are no re­ally lunker catches to re­port.

The Broad­kill River is giv­ing up quite a few white perch and a few short striped bass. As the wa­ter temp con­tin­ues to fall, we can ex­pect those stripers to get up to keeper size. The Roo­sevelt In­let and the Canal have been har­bor­ing a fair num­ber of floun­der and some short stripers.

If you are look­ing for floun­der to put in the box, I sug­gest the Cape Hen­lopen State Park after dark, where f lat­ties up to 20 inches are con­gre­gat­ing un­der the pier lights.

Along the Outer Wall, there are re­ports of sheepshead and tau­tog; and in the surf, there is steady ac­tiv­ity of false al­bies and blue­fish. In the In­dian River In­let, an­glers are get­ting a steady pick of taug along the rocks.

Well, this puts a cap on an­other sea­son of Salt Spray re­port. I be­lieve I be­gan writ­ing it way back in 1974 or ‘ 75, but, you know what ... each and ev­ery re­port con­tin­ues to be fun for me. I hope you have as much fun read­ing them.

I want each of you to have a great hol­i­day sea­son, and a healthy and happy 2018.

So, un­til the spring when the macks are back, stay well. Thank you very much for your loy­alty.
