Before we get started, a quick THANK YOU to whatever higher power gave us this beautiful Saturday. Hope everyone got a chance to soak in some of the vitamin D.
Guess what? There’s still tog out there, and they are still slow to the bite! But it’s good looks for the future. Current water temperature in Rehoboth is about 46 degrees.
Reports of a couple small rockfish being caught out of Indian River Inlet. It’s a little early for anything consistent, but hey, at least it’ll get you out of the house. IR Inlet fishermen were also pulling up some short striper (15 inch average) earlier in the week. The key is getting there at outgoing tide and using small swim shads and bucktails.
They are tearing up the tuna down in the Carolinas. As soon as the water gets a little warmer, they’re headed straight for us. Probably another month or so.

Welcome to spring! Nothing like gale-force winds to break in the new season. Weather tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful, so take some quality time today to untangle your lines and toss those old worms you thought you’d get to use last fall.
If you’re looking for something uneventful to do, try tog fishing. The cold weather is keeping them slow, but they’ll still come out if you’re patient.
Anglers are reporting short rockfish coming out of the Inlet. Try and get here right before high-tide and you’ll have better luck. No more stripers reported out of here, but one popped up down in OC. Bring out some small shads – that seems to be the lucky pick.
Water temperature reading is 41 F so be on the lookout for schools of striper – they’re a-coming.

The weather outside has been deceivingly sunny and warm the past few days, but if you tried to go to the beach, you probably got pretty sandblasted.
I know everyone is tired of hearing it, but the tog are still steady. The water temperature is the same, despite the warmth. Temperatures are supposed to drop back down to “normal” this Sunday.
Two firsts this week: first striper was caught at the Indian River Inlet today by Chuck Davis. Nice catch! And the first osprey sighting at Delaware Seashore State Park right at the Inlet bridge.
Tuna are still hot down in North Carolina. Save some for us, guys! 🙁
The marina Ship Store’s grand opening is set for Easter weekend! Hammerheads Dockside will also be open by then, so come on down for tarps and drinks!
Five more days, people… Hang in there.

Hope everyone made it through the late-winter freeze okay. The water temperature dropped a couple of degrees. That being said, hope is on the horizon.
Tog are still scattered, with most anglers catching limits of decent tog. Reports say they were up to 27″ out of OC.
Tuna are flooding the Oregon Inlet in NC according to reports. Massive blue fin were reeled in, up to 107″, all weekend, and yellow fin were hitting the deck like crazy. We’re looking at a few warm days in a row coming up, so be ready to get out there and enjoy it! As soon as the water temperature hits over 45, we’re betting all those tuna are gonna come up to enjoy it!
We’re all white-knuckled waiting for this weather to break. Hold on y’all, not much longer.
Liked always, thanks for reading. Not too much longer until those tight lines and WARM times!

It’s hard to be positive in the face of next week’s freeze, but spring is only 19 days away!
Captains are still landing heavy tog, up to over 10 lbs. Patience is the key here. Cold fish = slow bite.
Those lucky enough to be in North Carolina right now are enjoying thick yellow-fin, blue-fin, and black sea bass. Be ready – those fish are headed our way as soon as the water warms up! To prep for the upcoming season, you might want to take advantage of the low tides we’ve been having to check out sandbar locations.
