Summer fishing will last into October

By Rich King
It's September, and despite the 2020 craziness, fishing is still a going thing, more so this year than ever. Seems everyone is fishing these days.

Summer fishing will last well into October as long as the weather stays mild enough. Eventually we will have the summer-to-fall fish transition. The beauty of Delmarva is we are in the middle of the East Coast. We see all the migratory fish and even the weird tropical fish that make it up this far. Every year we see more of these tropical fish, and the migratory fish runs are delayed longer and longer.

Striped bass season used to be October; now it has moved to November into December. That just means we just get to fish longer and – we hope – catch more. We fish all year long anyway, but the milder weather is much more comfortable. You don't need to prep your gear for fall fishing just yet; we aren't done with the summer species.

Still fun at Rehoboth seashore

Funland has always weathered the storm, literally.

The Fasnacht family of Pennsylvania was due to purchase the former Rehoboth Beach Sports Center March 15, 1962. On March 5, the Storm of 1962, the worst nor’easter in Delaware’s recorded history, hit the area, causing extensive inland flooding and damage throughout Sussex County, including the Rehoboth Boardwalk and the Sports Center.

That didn’t deter the Fasnachts, who worked out a deal to allow for damage and went ahead with the purchase. The rest is part of Rehoboth history, as Funland grew and became the family go-to place in the resort.
