Thursday was a beautiful day and since I know it’s not going to last, I went fishing. I waited until the tide was high at the head of the Broadkill River in Milton before heading over to drown some earthworms. I joined seven other hopeful anglers, all but one had gray hair, for over an hour without result. As far as I could tell everyone, but one guy in a very small boat, was using worms. The boater appeared to be fishing for bass as he kept casting and retrieving lures to various structure along the bank. The fellow fishing next to me said he did catch a small eel before I arrived. There were lots of herring busting water and flashing just under the surface. I think perhaps the water is still a bit too cold for perch or bass to begin feeding.
I stopped in at Lewes Harbour Marina in the morning and spoke to Tom. He said no one went out on Thursday and the Lewestown Lady did go on Wednesday, but found the tog fishing very poor. The Morning Star out of Ocean City also had poor tog fishing.
