Delaware Bay Report

Fortescue
Capt. Howard ran the Salt Talk onto the bay Sunday, mostly to check maintenance he did to the boat, but trolled Stretch lures a short time, about an hour, when he did that, he said. Nothing bit, but he was trying for resident striped bass. Last year at about this time, locals hooked a few resident but decent-sized stripers 40-some inches from the bay. So on the trip, Howard tried for those. One boater from the marina on Saturday decked a few bluefish and kingfish from the bay. Weather was often rough lately, and Howard didn’t even know whether surf anglers caught anything at Fortescue. The water was so dirty because of the weather. That might’ve prevented fish from biting in the surf. The Salt Talk used to be a Fortescue party boat. Howard sold that vessel, and the new Salt Talk is a charter boat for up to four passengers.
