As promised, I went fishing on Thursday. My friend Larry Weldin and I put my boat (yes it ran) over at the Lewes Boat Ramp and were underway around noon. Since the weather and the seas were so beautiful we headed towards the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park looking for big blues. There were large pods of bait that I think were bunker, but no blues.
Back at the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal at the beginning of the outgoing we fished with minnows until 2:30 when the lack of any action at all made us decide to call it a day.
The report from Lighthouse View Tackle was a few blues on Wednesday right at dark. The bait was fresh bunker. On Thursday it was a skate-a-thon at the pier.
Some good news for a change from Indian River Inlet. The hickory shad are in and anglers are catching their 10 fish limit on shad darts and small spoons. Short rock have been caught from the North and South Pockets on bucktails.
The Katydid ran a half day trip and brought in some tog.
