Brinkmans report
Friday March 18, 2011


I headed out with bloodworms and herring and fished 5 or 6 of my favorite spots. In 4 hours I did not have one single hit. Now the river conditions were not all that great. I was out at the top of high tide and the river was muddy but so full of debris that fishing was almost impossible. That lasted till mid tide then the river got much better. But still no fish. Now in this area they did catch a 31 inch fish up off Station Avenue with a few smaller fish. Down at the Tacony a customer picked up two 27 inch fish with a couple catfish. And further down river at Penn Treaty they picked up a couple fish 15 to 18 inches. So far that is all the stripers that I have heard of. Further down river Paul has been fishing every afternoon with bloodworms only to catch several catfish and eels. He said this is the earliest he has seen eels in the river since he started fishing. The Salem Canal has still been really good for stripers 20 to 29 inches.

On Wednesday afternoon, there was a little flurry of short stripers right around the time of low tide. I did not have and feedback or weighins this afternoon which pretty much speaks for itself. Sixty degrees today and temperatures in the seventies tomorrow will help water temperatures and I would not be at all surprised for the action to break loose.
Two trips and three stops didn't locate any grass shrimp today. It just might be the clear water, but I think it has to do with the shot of rain we had on Wednesday morning.
Bloodworms and fresh clam resupply is due sometime on Friday morning. I have really loaded up and believe I am prepared for the first crowds of the season.
Still no sign of the Black Crown Night Herons. I though with the warmer temps they would be back this morning.
Green Crabs are ordered for the next time available; no crabs are expected for this Friday though.

Just wanted to give you a heads up on a few things for this weekend. I will be opening very early Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 4:30 AM We will be getting fresh clams in the shell, shucked, and we will be getting more blood worms tomorrow as well. I will be repairing reels all weekend as well. If you are waiting, I should be able to get most everything done by Monday. Get out there this weekend, this should really get it going.

Yesterday's Report: UPDATED 11:54 AM It seems that another local and big time regular Dennis Vincent was fishing with Kurt at one time last night, and had contacted me on Facebook with a picture of his keeper bass in the front of the shop. I have decided to double the prize money for the first keeper of the year and give it to them both. Good anglers, and great customers. Congrats again and the season has begun.

Friday, March 18, 2011 It was a fun day at the tackle shop. Anglers were upbeat and thinking about fishing and leaving the rest of the world behind them. Action at the point is picking up. There is no steady activity, just a fish here and there. I know of three shorts that were caught mid afternoon.
Yesterday there was activity both at Pebble Beach and Graveling Point. One keeper of thirty inches was taken home for dinner by one of the veteran GP anglers; a thirty incher.
Clams and worms came in a little late in the morning. Both are in excellent supply for the weekend.

Ok now before you read this please be advised that this was "told to me" and therefore I DO NOT KNOW HOW TRUE IT IS.... My buddy told me that some guys were fishing off their boat near Atlantic City and caught 300lbs of stripers... Can they be that far up here already??? Last I heard was that they were around Virginia. Any input guys??

Northwest winds will keep the waves knocked down and looking good, but won't help the water temps. Not really anyone fishing yet.

We are still hearing rumors of Bass caught but nothing shows up on the scale to prove it. We seem to have more people on the phone than we do on the beaches which makes it tough to give you current info. Early spring fishing always involves some searching so get out when you have some time and see how good/lucky you can be.

Virginai beach fishing Center report

Fishing has slowed up a bit in the ocean and it seems the Striper have started to move back in to the Chesapeake Bay to spawn. Striper season closes March 31st so there's only 9 more days to try your luck in the ocean. Another option for fishing is right here in Rudee Inlet. We've heard reports of Speckled Trout and Puppy Drum starting to hit now that the water has started to gradually warm up. The most common bait we've seen people buy is cut bait, specifically squid and mullet. If you want to use artificial, gulp and any grub tail with a sparkle to it will work. Pretty soon we should start seeing the Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel show up off the beach since warmer weather is right around the corner!

Friday, March 25, 2011 /\/\/\ 5:16pm Fresh clams and bloodworm status is good.

The temperature was in the forties yesterday; otherwise, it was prime striper weather. Craig --being the dedicated angler he is-- was able to find a keeper at Graveling Point.
Anglers are few and far in between due to the cold and the gusty wind. It's nice to know the bass are still here even know there was skim ice on the puddles this morning.

Thursday, March 24, 2011 /\/\/\ 5:16pm Graveling Point activity on Monday afternoon was as good as anyone could hope for. There was just ONE barely keeper with a lot of shorts coming in off the ocean with the incoming tide. Mid week activity has been slow due to a lack of anglers. It's one thing to fish in crappy weather, but to stick it out with the wind howling and the occasional flurry of snow; that's got a really low fun factor.
Fresh clams arrived mid day and bloodworm status is good too with more coming tomorrow. No luck on shrimp as the rain has cut back on the catching.

Default Tracking the bass up the coast 2011

April, Snowing in PA. The river has lost 3 degrees in the last two days.

Great news, No ones been fishing and the shad and stripers and they are in! [email protected]

I'v been taking advantage of a empty river full of fish, it takes patients and time but you can get into some nice fish.


Book a shad or striper trip. www.delawareriverbass.com
