WGMD Fishing Report 12-24-17


Saturday saw small craft advisories flying and to the best of my knowledge no one went fishing.

At Lewes Harbour Marina Julie was able to get out on Friday aboard the Oh Christy Ann where she caught a slot rockfish on a MOJO fishing off of Bethany Beach.  A few other slot fish were caught along with one keeper taken by Blake Reed.

At Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em the report from the No Limit was they had a good catch of tog and black sea bass on Friday.  They also saw several rockfish caught Friday by private boats on MOJOs and Stretches off of Bethany Beach.

Most of the tackle shops and marinas will close early today and will not reopen again until Tuesday.  Several shops will only be open on a limited basis during the winter so if you plan to fish you will want to call ahead to secure bait.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.  I hope Santa brings you everything you want and the fishing gods smile brightly on our endeavors in 2018.

This is Eric Burnley with your WGMD fishing report.
