WGMD Fishing Report 11-22-17


Small craft advisories flew on Tuesday and will be back up on Wednesday.

At Lewes Harbour Marina Tony said no one ventured out to the bay or the ocean.  They will be open on Thanksgiving and that is the next day that looks fishable.

At Old Inlet Bait and Tackle they told me that Claude Davis caught a 20-inch speckled trout while jigging a shiner-like shad among the rocks on the southside on the inlet.  On the northside, from Bubblegum Beach on back to the Coast Guard Station, the rockfish bite slowed down from Monday, but several fish to 25 inches were taken on bucktails with white plastic worms and small, white shads.  The long-line fly fishermen were able to catch a few rockfish working the rips east of the Coast Guard Station.  The hard-core jetty jockeys working the early morning shift caught a few keeper rock before the sun came up.  Bucktails with a white plastic worm are a good bet for this fishery.

At Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em they said one private boat went out and came back with a few tog.
