In Delaware Bay, biologist Russ Allen of our Bureau of Marine Fisheries is netting, tagging & releasing a few A. shad but there are far more striped bass that he's catching, tagging & releasing. In Lambertville, NJ, the Lewis Fishery has netted only 2 buck shad so far. Likewise, Delaware Bay commercial gill netter George Kumor has caught only 2 A. shad, one on 3/25 & one on 4/3. He claims they are late, & hopes to have good catches next week. Mostly bunker & striped bass in the bay at this time.
