Friday was about as close to perfect fishing weather as you are going to get in Delaware.  Bright sunshine, light winds and warm temperatures.

My wife Barbara and I left the Lewes Launch ramp around 2:30 PM to catch the incoming current in the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal.  I was surprised to see the water temperature at 79 degrees.  I was fishing with a round green bucktail decorated with a day-glow Gulp! crawfish.  Barbara had a Bob Baker rig with a live minnow on the top and a day-glow Gulp! crawfish on the bucktail on the bottom.  We drifted from Roosevelt Inlet to the Savanah Road Bridge and I caught one 14-inch flounder.  Barbara had two crabs.  We ran back to the inlet and drifted up the Broadkill River where the water temperature dropped to 72 degrees.  I caught a 17-inch flounder.  We headed back to the ramp at 6:00 PM.

Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina said the Katydid had a good catch of sea bass to 20 inches on ocean structure.  The Grizzly had a mixed bag of black drum, trout and short flounder from Delaware Bay.
