  • BOATERS FIRST AID CLASSWhat a great class thanks to Katherine Beamer, Certified Family Nurse Practitioner with Direct Access Internal Medicine of Gloucester and Stacey & Randy Williams, Gloucester EMTs & Firefighters/ Walter Reed Hospital nurses! Twenty-two boaters received their American Heart Assoc. First Aid Certification on Saturday, Feb. 19th at DYC.

    The class made a $420 donation to Middlesex County Volunteer Rescue Squad in appreciation for their quick response to emergencies.

    The course covered all First Aid responses(bleeding, broken bones, burns, heart attack, stroke, poisons) and also addressed questions specific to boaters- hypothermia, heat exhaustion, fish hook injuries, seafood allergies. Additional items suggested for your current First Aid Kit: rubber gloves, hand sanitizer, liquid Benedryl, paper towels, reflective space blanket, ziploc bags, allergy meds specific to those travelling onboard your boat.

    BOATERS CALLING 911 FROM A CELL PHONE: When calling for 911 from your cell phone out on the water, you may get a dispatcher on Vas Eastern Shore, Northern Neck or elsewhere! To be sure Middlesex County emergency personel meet you at DYC, you must call Middlesex Sheriffs Dispatch 804-758-2779 and give them specific address of Deltaville Yachting Center 18355 Puller Highway, Deltaville, Va. 23043. (804-776-9898) It was strongly advised that you make a laminated card containing this information and keep it with your First Aid Kit or readily visable on your boat.


  • Fishing with B.T.The fishing season is upon us again. I am sure that everyone has had enough of this frigid winter weather. The time has come to prepair our boats for the water. The first thing is to be sure your boat is mechanically sound. Check your lower unit oil and change it if you didnt when you put your boat away last fall. Also change the fuel filters and spark plugs to be sure you have a smoothe and efficient running engine. These few thing could make the first trip a more pleasant voyage. Now on to the fishing! Togs are a good species to target early. There are a number of good places to fish for these tasty fighters. The Cell ia a popular spot but can be fished out rather quickly if you dont go early in the season. There are some spots closer to home port such as the Iron Ore bottom ( N37-31.084 W076-15.135 ) and the Artificial Reef ( N37-28.885 W076-14.236 ). Both of these places are just off Gwynns Island. Baits of choice are pieces of blue crab, clam and fiddler crabs. Fish in the structure cause this is where the Togs live. Spadefish should become active around late May depending on the water temps. Wolftrap Light and the Cell are the most popular spots Tiny bits of fresh clam on a strong #1 or #2 hook the best set up. Use just enough weight to get the offering below the surface in the feeding zone. There is also an early striper season in our area. Please be sure to check the regulations before you go because they could change after this goes to press. Croaker and flounder will be availiable in all their favorite hiding spots so be sure to try for them also. We are more than blessed with the abundance of species within the close proximity of our marina. Get that boat ship shape and go enjoy a day on the water with family and friends. Hopefully we will harvest some of the tasty fish for a nice dinner. Please be safe on the water and hope to see yall soon at DYC.
