Updated: 04-21-2002

  A mild winter has kept the water much warmer than what would usually be here this time of the year and that has all kinds of fish doing their thing a month eariler. Black drum are here and being caught in decent numbers. Large seatrout are also being caught and that is also big news. Bay water is in the low 60's, about 10 to 12 degrees above normal.

Recent trips have resulted in limit catches for Grizzly patrons. A local group with Sam Green, Howard Nygood, Bob Wittie, Nick Swicleck, Wess Lawrence, Jack Shulchs, and others had a big day catching a limit of big Delaware stripers eariler in the week. The fish were caught near the muoth of the bay on bucktails and using live eels. Seas were calm and summer like temperatures made for a wonderful day for all. Quinten Tollerson and a group of friends from Philadelphia chartered the Grizzly for two days of wreck fishing and the groups had outstanding fishing on both trips. On day one we caught a nice bunch of stripers to top things off and on day two we had a limit of nice fat tautog for a bonus to top off mostly full coolers of wreck fish. The guys went home with coolers full of fish. Rough conditions resulted in a day at the dock for another group but there are far fewer days like that this time of the year.

Anyone wanting to get into some great night fishing for black drum and seatrout might want to consider a charter now as the fish are here and biting. We leave the dock at 6pm and usually return about 2am.
