Can't wait to get out again tomm
But cold nights freak me out before a spring trip water temps bound to drop a half degree and sometimes that's the difference in a good trip and a ok one hoping this pic is a problem I won't have




Just realized we r 5 pages deep and not a fish shown time to put some presure on the Big D

Hit the river 10am fished until 7:30pm lots of different spots used every bait (clam, bloodworm, bunker, salt herring) no striper. Did manage one catfish and lots of Lil nibble hits had one decent hit but my leader must have had a major nick in it cause it broke. Water still feels to cold and river is still dirty.

The fish winter in the bay dormant. In fact the gill net season in DE bay and Chesapeake is from December to February. These are mostly migratory fish that come up and stage before spawning. I used to gill net in the Chesapeake and the fish would move in in January most years.

Havent potted a single eel yet. Set last week and checked them on a 4 day set.

Looks like fairly good conditions, with temperatures in the high 60s and light winds. I hear they are calling for rain Friday night, so that may be something to watch out for.

Water temps are still hovering in the mid to high 40s though. Don't think they will be up this way (Trenton) until the first week of May. If anyone else has a different thought process feel free to weigh in!

Hey all, I am finally getting out this weekend. Is the ramp clear and docks in at the Frankford Arsenal or at Peace Valley. Both are very close to me, but I would still hate to make the trip just to find them a mess. Thanks and ps, be on channel 17 when you all are out. A few of us did that last year and we would share fish location info out on the water. Worked ok, but I would love all of us to be on board with this. I have no issues sharing some good hot spots, if I find them that is. Well, hope to see or hear from you all this weekend, channel 17, Chuckles

Went to the pier by CBB on Sunday for a couple hrs. While I was there not her guy got a small striper on clam around 11" I'd guess. I got nota. Not even a catfish.
We chatted for a while and we swapped numbers for reports and a future trip on the boat. He texted me yesterday that he got 4 more shorts from a boat by PHL, the largest being 16".

Probably heading out on saturday by the rail bridge into trenton. I know they probably aren't up that far but I just can't wait any longer. Time to rally the troops!

A little birdie told me of some shorts and not so shorts being caught just north of the CBB this week. Sent me some a pic to back it up. VERY nice fish caught yesterday. Go get em! Bloods and clams are working.
