Friday was warm and windy and while no boats left the dock, folks fishing from shore did have a bit of luck.
Clark at Old Inlet Bait and Tackle said two ten-pound blues were caught Friday morning out of Indian River Inlet. Lenny Rudow reported that Big Bird Cropper caught a big bluefish out of Ocean City’s Inlet. I hope this a good sign for things to come.
Mike at Eastern Marine had a report of a 26-pound rockfish caught at Woodland Beach on a bloodworm. Mike Adams caught and released a 40-inch rock from the Delaware River. Fort DuPont has seen a fair number of short rockfish caught on bloodworms. Dutch Neck Road at the C&D Canal has seen good white perch action on bloodworms, nightcrawlers and salted clams.
Lewes Ice House Bait and Tackle reported that Emma Coapp caught a 17-inch flounder on a shiner from the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park. Once we get away from all this wind and rain I think we will have flounder in the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal and the Broadkill River.
