Mike...nice pics of you and the kids! You know, Records pond and Trap pond have a pretty good population of red ear sunfish...some biggies, too!

Hey Mike...sorry it took so long for me to get back with you. I have fished the Tuckaho State Park over the years and found it to be hit or miss, depending on time of year and tidal stages. It is a good place in the spring...late March to around now, but if it remains cool it can be good for some species into June. It is a large spillway where the Tuckaho Lake dumps in and the stream is influenced by the tide. A lot of variety here in the spring...bass, gills, big crappie at times, white and yellow perch and some shad. Chain pickerel, too. In the lake, it is a bass and pickerel gig with heavy wood cover in the upper end of the pond...good small boat water. The MD DNR reports this year that the lake has a good population of 'trophy' redear sunfish.

It is probably not too late to get bass and panfish there...maybe a sleeper for 10 inch plus redears.

Good luck!

Hey Mike...I live in MD but will likely fish in Del with friends who live in Bridgeville DE sometime close to Christmas. Know any good down-state crappie spots?
