ACROSS THE BAY
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.
