Re: 1st salt experience -- Delaware Bay
Hey turbine just a little info. Broadkill beach is a good spot right now High tide is the best time a 3" all white clouser or a pink over white size 2 is a good choice. Beach plum island is the name of the park go over the dune crossing and walk to the left. Look for the old partially submerged rock jetty. croakers, blues, flounder and sea trout have been fairly plentiful. There have also been several large cownose rays in the area. this area will be a lot less crowded especially on a week day. You may want to walk the area at low tide to get a better idea of the submerged jetties. the fish will usually be where the rocks meet the bottom. A 9wt is the rod of choice for most local fly rodders mainly to compensate for the wind but I use a 7wt when its not blowing to hard. An intermediate line is nice for the surf and if you go to Broadkill bring some bug spray if the wind is out of the south.
