CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, July 11 - July 17, 1997 - 84 Cape Region Fishing Report From The Ca )e Gazette's Traveler Series* Smf fishing slow, offshore action starting to heat up By Michael Short Fishing action remains strong with offshore tuna action picking up, the first white marlin being re- ported and solid action on trout, flounder and striped bass. Surf fishing remains slow, but most of the news is good. Delaware Bay R & R Sports Center reports that trout action is still solid in Delaware Bay, particularly the Lower Middle, Icebreakers, Outer Wall and Broadkill Slough. Top and bottom rigs with clam, squid and peeler crab are all productive. The Delaware Bay action may have cooled a bit during the mid- day heat, but it's definitely noth- ing to complain about. Flounder action in Delaware Bay is good in between the two walls, outside the Outer Wall in 40 to 60 feet of water and all along the edge of the Anchorage, partic- ularly G and F Buoys. Cape Henlopen Fishing Pier re- ports that flounder, trout and spot are being caught with the best baits being minnows for flounder, chicken breast for trout and blood- worms for the spot'. Donald Bendinsky is the most recent weekly winner in the pier's heavi- est flounder of the week competi- tion. Spot and croaker are being caught on peeler crab and blood- worms at Roosevelt Inlet. Indian River Indian River Inlet produced a 35 inch striped bass for "Fats", a 38 inch fish for Bill Brady and a very nice 27.86 pound fish for Walter Phillips. Lots of nice fish are be- TIDES ing taken from the inlet. Captain Bill of Captain Bill's Bait and Tackle suggests either live eels or a white bucktail. Tip the bucktail with an 11-inch black worm and hang on to your rod butt. Flounder fishing has been good in the back bays and some tautog are also being caught at the inlet. Spot are also being caught in Indi- an River as the fish make their an- nual summer appearance while further upriver, white perch are available. Offshore Henry Hoffman brought home a 300'-pound tiger shark, as shark fishing has turned as hot as the summer weather. Also getting nice sharks were the "Lost Boys" with three makos and Chuck Reynolds with a 150-pound mako. If you've never caught a mako, it's a world class gamefish that puts most other sharks to shame. Julie Hall caught a 40-p.ound bluefin tuna on a Halco Laser and reported a ton of bluefish in the Fingers. There are reports of lots of bluefish still being found, enough so that some are proving a lesson in frustration when they tear up expensive offshore baits. The boat "Wave Dancer" "took ad- vantage of tuna action with five yellowfin tuna and one white mar- lin from Poor Man's Canyon. Old Inlet Bait and Tackle re- ports the first few white marlin of the season being caught in the last few days. There are also rumors of a blue marlin being caught and anyone with more definitive infor- mation can contact me with the Continued on page 85 Date 7/12 Indian River Rehoboth " Roosevelt .

He is shown here in Athens, Greece in the late spring of 1996. He wrote: "1 am sitting on a marble outcropping known a Mars Hill. It was upon this hill that Apostle Paul was called before the leading men of Athens so they could ask him about the strange religion he had been preaching in their town. (Acts 17:16-34.) The temple in the background is the temple of Hephaistos and Athena Hephaisteia, god and goddess of the arts and artJsts, built 449-444 B.C. Beyond, as far as the eye can see, is the modern city of Athens." David teaches Bible and Bible-related classes at Grayson County Community CoUege in Denison, Texas. He and four students used the gospel of Luke to teach English in Greece. Catching up on local news in front of the Cozumel town square Milton and Jane Carey of Milton (right) cruised to Cozumel in May of 1996. They met their friends there, David and Gerri Warrington of Lin- coln, who were vacationing in Cozumel at the same time. They are shown here catching up on news from home in front of the town square where there is an area map of Cozumel. Cozumel is an island in the Caribbean Sea, approximately 10 miles off the east coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. The island hosts a population of abeut 5,858, not counting visitors or readers of the Cape Gazette which swells that num- ber considerably.
