call ahead , before you plan a trip .....
got me 18 jumbos at lunch over in New Castle! The are a few days old but ..............better than getting none. I think the blood man comes Monday and Friday so Sunday and Thursdays are slim picking and those that still have bloods have 2-3 days old ones.

I hear suppliers and tackle stores are both having problems satisfying the demand so far this season .

I can’t rely on trying to get Bloods at the last minute ever again ....
Next time , I call ahead of time to check .

Saw a nice fish caught today in my area, my fishing hole. Nice! 41 inches. 30 lbs I'm told.

I had a half flat and all I got was 3 small ones, lol.

Gotta try again.

I'm looking for some surf clams, in the shell. I'd like to give drum a shot in the great bay, plus a striper maybe too. I think we used to call it struming. Tuckerton to chestnut neck would be where I'd be willing to drive this time of year.

Hey fellas, not sure if your allowed to do this but I just called BlackWater Sports Center in Vineland NJ. As of 5 mins ago, they have 5 doz jumbos left and lots of Regular Bloods right now. I call and place an order usually a day before hand (just ordered jumbos for tomorrow AM) they seem good about holding to pick up. I'm new to NJ, so I dont have any other practical experience with them other than so far so good, and they have some good selections of gear.

Hit my usual spot after work and was able to fish from 330 PM to dam near 8 PM. Arrived an hour + before low and fished both bare worm and then the worm bag when my 18 jumbos starting running low. Not much action at all except a big old cat until around 630 when the wind died out and the sun starting to set - bam - big rod bender. Few minutes later with the help of guy fishing next to me, I netted my 3rd cow of the spring run - 38" and ready to drop her eggs. Handled her with care and allowed her to swim away to go do her thing. Stayed another 1.5 hours with a few taps but nothing to show for it. Gona take off today but hope to be back at it Saturday....thinking high tide but we shall see. so far 2 were closer to low and one was near high - go figure!

Got out finally this afternoon for a quick outing around low/ incoming. The shorts (16”-20”) were chewing and I saw two really nice fish landed around me. The wind was a lot stronger than I thought and the river was a beautiful shade of chocolate milk brown.

On a side note - saw these animal remains (I think?) at the water line around low tide. Anyone have any clue what it could be?
