Flounder, perch, striper, bluefish, weakfish, crabs

Flounder, perch, striper, bluefish, weakfish, crabs – the six main targets of Delaware Bay fishermen. Yet many associate the bay only with weakfish. In fact weakfish have been tough to find in recent years and it may be a few more years until we see a rebound in the fishery. But the other fish have carried the weight. Each year one species comes on stronger while another is more elusive. As the saying goes – that’s why they call it ‘fishing’ and not ‘catching.’

Here are a few photos of the fish caught at Money Island. What’s your favorite?
