The water quality here where Shimizu is fishing is fantastic. There is three feet of visibility which is great for the Delaware River. Yesterday was not as clear. The weather has been stable which is good for water clarity.
Nate Wellman is up the same creek where we've found Combs, Scanlon and Faircloth. But he was farther north and now he's headed back toward Philadelphia. We've been trying to find Fred Roumbanis, whom we've heard is up here. So far, no luck. And I think we're about as far as we can go.
Casey Scanlon keeps working his way north, farther and farther into New Jersey. He's found a bridge that he's working right now. There are three bridges within sight of each other here, and despite all the trees and the lack of visible houses and businesses, there is a lot of traffic -- and plenty of highway noise.
Jayden & Mia ask Jeremy how he is doing. Too funny. Hey Mister did you catch any yet? Are you going to win? I think they may be future bass fishermen/women. They said they don't really like using lures though. "Live bait is better!" -Marshal James Thompson

Shimizu just boated number 5. The tide is 3 ft higher than our earlier visit with him.
Combs has moved up in the same creek just a couple hundred yards away. He was fishing docks; now he's hitting up a slough.
On the move again , new spot but unfortunately we are heading back to the service trailer after this spot , logs and bass boats don't mix.
We pulled up again on Morizo Shimizu. I spoke with him and he has 4 keeper fish. The tide was slack when we last spoke to him but it is coming in hard now. He has not left this area all morning and it is his second day fishing this stretch of the Delaware.
