Did you know some of the best fishing in the mid-Atlantic takes place along the coast of Delaware? You may have seen anglers standing at the edge of the ocean, casting their lines directly into the breaking swell. They are surf fishing, hoping to hook one of the many species of game fish, like bluefish, who lurk close to shore.

Being out on the wide-open beach among shorebirds and the steady rhythm of crashing waves can be very relaxing, but it’s important to remain aware of the conditions around you. Always use caution when wading into the surf – even small waves can pack a powerful punch and undertows can be extremely dangerous as well.

This is SeaTalk, a public service announcement from the University of Delaware, the Delaware Sea Grant College Program, and this station.
