Ugh, been stuck under the new to me f350 dually getting it fixed to pass MD inspection so I can get down there, so sad to hear about the impending closure, just not enough time this year.  Guessing the bullpen is going to get moved as well, yay!

 

At least I will be ready for whatever summer/fall will bring :banghd:

 

Thanks for everyone posting pics, keeps the fire alive.

Time to get started I guess.  400 peelers ought to do it.

Crazy that this box of bait has a street value of almost $1000!

That'll slow down the bite down south a bit.

First drum worms this season...Parasites are very common in fish of all species. The type of worm that is found in Black Drum is commonly referred to as "Spaghetti worm." This worm egg starts out in the digestive tract of a shark where it is expelled in feces, after another stage of development it is hosted in a crab which is then eaten by the drum. After developing in the flesh of the drum, the cycle starts over when the drum (or other fish) is eaten by a shark. There is no possibility you will get worms from eating one as the human digestive tract is inhospitable to the worm. They can be pulled out of the flesh or cut out before cooking. I have cleaned several drum this season and only found worms in one.

Well I can't make it down for striper season again this year. We we're in D.C. for dinner at Le Diplamate and I saw skate on the menu. Had to get it. Very nice! Should keep a couple this year to cook on the beach

Regarding skates, they actually taste differently from year to year and location to location.  This year's Assateague crop tastes super, without any off flavor.  So if you are interested in trying some, this is the year :)

The cold water skate or the ones that roll up in a ball are awful.  Clear nosed skates are the ones I eat. They have a oyster back water flavor like some Black drum.  Very delicate and very oily and tasty.  Makes great skate cakes.
