  1. Out front on AIMD. 1 skate and 2 very small founder. First time ever catching the flat ones.
  2. Thinking of AIMD tomorrow (Thurs) but the West winds are making me rethink if it's worth getting eaten alive. Have they been bad this year?
  3. LuckyOC and SpinrOk, Thank you for the tips. I carry all the necessary equipment and more when on the beach. I was able to get out there this afternoon for my first time ever and WOW!!! That place is beautiful! I feel like I'm playing in the Majors now instead of the Minor Leagues (De.) I saw the OSV count at 101/145 when I got on. You're definitely right about more structure. Lots of sandbars and cuts. Some of the breaking waves were unreachable too. I also noticed what seemed to be a really long sandbar with deeper water behind it that was really far out. Is that walkable during low tide? Also I noticed at the 18km mark there was a possible exit, maybe to the bay? Is that restricted only for official use? Even with 101 vehicles on the beach I felt there was plenty of room for everyone. I wonder why it's capped at 145. It's easy to see at least 150 vehicles at Cape Henlopen which is much smaller. It basically turns into a mall parking lot at Xmas. Only managed 1 ray, 1 skate and 2 doggies. But I spent a lot of the time exploring and checking out the crabbing spots. Sorry for all the questions and thank you again for the advice.
  4. How crowded do you think it would be for a day like tomorrow, Thursday? Its not the weekend but getting close and its summer time. I'm thinking of making my first trip ever to AIMD, instead of the desolate flat beaches of Delaware. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
  5. I've heard reports and seen pics of nice kings being caught.
  6. Just wanted to ask if the flies are back biting again with the west winds. Trying to see if it's worth driving down for. Still too early? I know it can be bad on the beach but what about "an inlet in Delaware"
  7. Out front yesterday on the No structure and flat beaches of Delaware looking for kings. No kings, 1 short striper and 2 large sharks that cut me off. Sharks were fun though.
  8. No, they don't taste like shark. The texture is soft, but the meat stays together very well. Very similar to scallops. Sweet in taste and they can "take-on" different sauces very well. YouTube has a ton of videos.
  9. Had skate last week, was delicious. Never tried a ray though, figure it would be the same.
  10. Thanks for all the replies and inputs. I agree with everyone, the replenishment needs to stop to some degree, I'm assuming it never will, the towns need the tourists to come. Until then, no fish in Delaware. Next year, Assateague OSV permit, no more Delaware "surf" tag.
  11. Can anyone tell me why Delaware beaches are really flat with very little structures, ie. rips, troughs, sandbars and only 1 wave that breaks on the lip of the beach? Looking at pictures from AIMD/VA and Jersey beaches this is not the case. They usually have several breakers, defined rips and very visible troughs. Is this because of beach replenishment? I'm definitely going to reconsider my beach tag for next year. Most who own them don't even fish!
  12. Out front yesterday. 3 skates, 2 dogs, and 1 shortie. Did see lots of birds working the water though. Short was on fish bites. Seems that bloods are the way to go this spring, but not paying $1 per worm.
  13. Fenwick and Cape today. Nothing but 1 skate. Having a hard time finding fresh bunker too. The "fresh" the bait store is selling isn't that fresh. At least 3-4 days old and not kept well.
  14. Dumb poachers. What's the average fine? They should confiscate the fishing pole too.
  15. Out front this morning at CHSP and 3R's, nada; not even a nibble. Bunker was untouched. Not even the crabs or skates touched it. Wind wasn't as bad. Held bottom with 4oz. But it was beautiful day.
