52 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 21 - April 27, 1995 R&R fishing tournament to raise funds for Shields playground drive WHAT'S HAPPENING - While the mackerel fishing is slowing down, striper fishing has picked up, especially at Indian River Inlet where at least one keeper was landed last week. Gene Racz at R&R Sports Cen- ter near Five Points reported that Cape region angler Marty Cross and a fishing partner, Lenny, got into some striper at the Inlet last week. Marry landed and released a 27-and-a-half-inch fish while Lenny went home with a 33-inch striper. A lot of stripers also ha/e  been reported on The Rips. An- glers are using live eels and bloodworms, with eels as the pre- ferred bait. In freshwater ponds the action has remained lively, and several citation fish were weighed in at R&R last week. Aaron Smith of Milton weighed in with the biggest largemouth bass, which tipped the scale at 5.71 pounds. Smith hooked the fish at Red Mill Pond. Nick "ABC" Psaroudakis of Rehoboth Beach also landed a citation largemouth, this one weighing in at 5.07. Rich Garvey of Lewes joined the citation win- hers with his 1.22 pound crappie. Racz also noted that the shad run has begun in the headwaters of both the Nanticoke and Indian rivers. Shad jigs or darts ae the best bait, with the majority of an- glers jigging for the fish. ACKLEY ASSOCIATES REALTORS 140 Highway One, Lewes 302-645-7722 , 800-354-4097 FISHING TOURNAMENT - "Racz also announced this week that R&R Sports Center will spon- sor a fishing tournament with weekly prizes beginning May 15 through August 31. And it's for a good cause - all the proceeds are going to the Shields Elementary School's OUTDOORS playground drive. The play- ground committee at the elemen- tary school is in the process .of raising $40,000 to build a new playground. "We just thought this would be something nice to do for the com- munity," said Racz. The tournament will award a gift certificate for one large Grotto pizza each week to the angler who lands the biggest blue fish, floun- der, trout and striper. At the end of the season, cumulative totals will determine the overall winners in each fish category. End of sea- son prizes include a rod and reel to first place in each category, a reel for second place, and a rod for third place. The one-time entry fee is $2 per fish or $5 to enter all four cate- gories. In order to be eligible to win, anglers must pre-register and then must bring all fish to R&R Sports Center to be weighed in. For more information, give Gene a call at 645-9801. and wildlife regulations sailed through the House of Representa- tives before legislators took their two-week Easter break. Two bill sponsored by state Rep. John Schroeder (D-Lewes) - one to require fixed gill net fisher- men to remain with their nets and another to establish an eight-inch limit on white perch - both re- ceived unanimous votes of ap- proval and were sent to the Senate for action. Another bill, this one sponsored by state Rep. Charlie West (D- Gumboro), would raise Delaware's non-resident license fees for hunting and trapping to keep in line with those of sur- rounding states. It passed unani- mously and was sent to Governor Tom Carper for his signature.

The closed fishing season for summer flounder has been elimi- nated and the creel limit will in- crease from six to eight fish per day. The minimum size limit will remain 14 inches.
