Outdoors Continued from page 65 decline since 1990, prompting Delaware to ask the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commis- sion to manage the crab popula- tion, according to Delaware De- partment of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Fish- ery Biologist Stewart Micbels. Michels said that 1994 was the lowest horseshoe crab year ever since crab numbers have been kept (that only started in 1990). Hall said that some surveys show that crab populations have dropped by more than 80 percent despite legislation in Delaware, South Carolina, New Jersey and other states to protect the crabs. Hall noted that most fisheries are now considered to be in trouble and said that man needs to con- serve this and other fisheries. "Man's equipment is much more efficient than their biology," he said. Rock and reel Fishing remains hot for almost everything in Sussex County. Trout, flounder and striped bass action is good with largemouth bass, sea bass and even a few mako sharks thrown in to sweeten the pot. R & R Sports Center reports fishing the incoming tide at night at Indian River Inlet producing some nice striped bass, including some keepers. The inlet is also producing some bluefish while some flounder are being caught behind the inlet around 19 and 19A Buoy and in front of the VFW Post. There are nice sea bass being caught at B Buoy, but flounder and trout (weakfish) continue to dominate headlines. The Canal and Roosevelt Inlet continue to produce flounder and trout along with some throwback striped bass. Some of the fish are not keepers, but there have been good numbers of fish. Top and bottom rigs are catch- ing fish. So are jig heads and bucktails tipped with either squid or peelers. The first few mako sharks of the season are showing up. You can find the hard hitting make sharks around the Jackspot, Triple Wrecks and Fingers areas. The first mako reported for Lewes fishermen was caught Sat- urday by Steve Warrington from 20 Fathoms, northeast of the Jackspot. The shark weighed in at 207 pounds. Speaking of the Jackspot, Joe Morris of Lewes Harbour Marina thinks we're at least a couple of weeks away from any bluefin tuna action. Bluefin tuna lit up the Jackspot last summer, but it's still early for any tuna catches. Surf fishing is producing some bluefish. Trolling for large bluefish, some of them nearly 15 pounds, is good around the Five Fathom Bank area. Black drum fishing was very good around the Coral Beds over the weekend and drum fishermen in either the Coral Beds or Broadkill Slough may find trout in the same areas. Drum may be an undeffished resource and it's always amazing that the large fish aren't more popular with spring fishermen. Bigger trout are being taken around structure. It's less of a sure thing, but working the lighthous- es, outer wall, Icebreakers or other structure can produce some larger fish. Morris also suggests fishing near the Cape May Lewes Ferry Wall for flounder and fishing north of Roosevelt Inlet for trout. Try for trout in about 12 feet of water.
