WGMD Fishing Report 3-19-18


I should have listened to Dan’s Tackle shop when they told me on Saturday that no one was catching fish.  No, I had to go out and prove it myself on Sunday.

I drove down to Milton around 1:00 PM to try the town park at the head of the Broadkill River.  I arrived as the tide was starting out which, according to all the experts, is the best time to fish.  The experts need to study that idea a little bit more.

There were five of us fishing with six rods in the water and no one caught a single fish or, as far as I could tell, had a single bite.  It looked like everybody was fishing with worms under a bobber.  When the other four anglers packed it in, I was not far behind.

Saturday was the last day of bluefin tuna season out of North Carolina.  From the pictures my son Ric sent it looked like they did pretty well.

The week ahead promises another nor’easter.  Sooner or later these things will stop and perhaps some fish will show up.
