Monday was a beautiful fishing day with both ocean and bay trips producing some nice fish.
At Lewes Harbour Marina, Tommy reported that the Katydid had 19 flounder over ocean structure. Slot rockfish and keeper flounder came out of the Canal. Minnows and Gulp! for the flounder with live eels the
hot bait for the rockfish. Offshore, tuna and dolphin continue to come in from the canyons.
A very dedicated angler fished the pier at Cape Henlopen State Park all night Sunday into Monday. He ended the night with three short trout and one slot rockfish according to Lighthouse View Tackle. Spot and croaker kept daytime anglers happy.
The weather was so nice I decided to run down to the southside of Indian River Inlet and try for some croaker. Acie at Old Inlet said he fished there on Sunday, but didn’t catch anything. Nevertheless, I bought a pint of sand fleas and gave it a try. After a couple of hours of not having a bite, not seeing anyone else get a fish and continuously cleaning green seaweed off my rig, I gave up and drove back home.
