WGMD Fishing Report 10-16-18


Tuesday saw rough seas on the bay and ocean and it’s only going to get worst.  Gale warnings are already up for Wednesday and Thursday and then again on Saturday.

Both Lewes Harbour Marina and Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em reported all quiet on the docks as no one tried to go fishing.

At Old Inlet Bait and Tackle, Clark said small blues to 16 inches were caught from the beach and the inlet.  Cut mullet was the top bait with spoons or bucktails the top lures.  Incoming water was the best time to fish.  A few small tog have been caught from the inlet rocks on sand fleas or green crabs.

Over in the Chesapeake Bay, they are finding schools of blues, rock and Spanish mackerel chasing bait on the surface.  Most of the blues and rock have been small, but a few big Spanish were caught over the weekend.  Chumming and using alewife chunks for bait has produced keeper rock at Hackett’s Bar and Podickory Point.  Jigging the bridge pilings with six-inch BKDs on ½ to ¾-ounce heads has also been productive.
