    I read 2118 was one of the worse years for the shad count passage at the coniwingo fish lift at only 6000:confused: I also read striped bass are at a low an fishing will now likly be banned next year . lots say the fishermans catch an release doing the most damage ,not the netters,pollution :rolleyes: unreal as there fish commission is like ours:mad: big plant in the South Bay wipes out the mehaden an other baitfish ,byusing airplanes spotting schools of bait an putting the netters on them to wipe them out. all about money ,who cares if they clean out the stripers food supply :(so a shad trip may be a waste of time :confused:

    I don't know about the Susky, Frank. The shad fishermen in the Delaware seem to be doing very well this year in spite of the high water most of the time. I have not gotten to do any fishing so far this year, so I don't personally know, but that's the info I've been getting. Some are getting small stripers while shad fishing too.

    I never fished the Deleware river but read it has some great fishing. I plan on heading down to port deposit for some fishing soon as it clears up. I will try for some shad an see if the reports are accurate. if no shad there,I will do some walleye fishing that,s pretty good with larger fish than above the dam where I live. sons got a motel booked for next week at lewes Deleware for some Roosevelt inlet flounder fishing . he wants me to go but I may have to help my other son.i love jigging for flounder an my favorite fishing,eating fish.

    Son just called ,said the worst flounder catch of the day buys supper each day:rolleyes: looks like red headed whitey will be buying everyday:D I call him whitey because I seen him set out in the boat all day in the heat with a hoodie over his head to keep the sun off.looked like he was sleeping with his head hanging down holding his pole out the side.he use to come along when we fished the Delaware bay ,when we got in from fishing we would all jump in an clean the boat an do all the work,he would head for our camper an set at the table in the AC an watch us out the window do all the work in the heat:mad:then I would have to buy his supper as we all went out to eat:confused: see why I like picking on whitey:D

    Looks like another one of them years:confused:the good news I see there closing three mile island nuke plant down , then we need to get rid of the peachbottom one ,that would make me feel better .there putting up natural gas plants all around here an I think that,s better than nuke plants.

    I agree, close em down and fire up the natural gas generation plants. We have one of the new generation natural gas power generation plant near here, it's air cooled and only uses river water for emergency cooling.
    Besides us landowners here in NePa need the natural gas royalties money Y'all heard so much about :rolleyes:.
