We had the perfect spring winter weather for enjoying the outdoors this weekend. People were riding horseback on the beaches, looking for sea glass and other treasures. Fishing the surf has been slow but some folks tried anyway just to get out there. The point in Cape Henlopen State Park will close as usual on Tuesday and reopen after Labor Day weekend. We hate seeing the point close; it is a great place to fish. No matter there is plenty of beach to enjoy in the parks.
This weekend Saad Soliman and some friends did some tautog fishing aboard the Morning Star out of Ocean City, Maryland, with Captain Monty Hawkins. Saad reports, “Tog out of (Ocean City) has been spotty lately. Monty on the Morning Star ran a group of 16 out deep and we fished for tog in 140 feet of water. Surface temp was 43 (degrees), bottom temp was 46. It’s a weird scratchy bite but there are quality fish coming up, I went top dog with a 9-pounder. There were about 25 to 30 keepers boated. White crab was the choice bait.”
