WGMD Fishing Report 3-23-19


Gale warnings were up on Friday and will be up again on Saturday.  Looks like a good weekend to get things done around the house so you can be free to fish when the fish finally show up.

Lenny Rudow’s Fish Talk Report said white and yellow perch have been caught from the tidal creeks and rivers on both sides of the Chesapeake Bay and from the Delaware side of the Delaware Bay.  Perryville and Port Deposit in Maryland and the Broadkill and Nanticoke rivers in Delaware were mentioned as productive locations.  Bloodworms, grass shrimp and minnows remain the best baits.

In New Jersey they are catching winter flounder.  The daily limit is only two fish so it wouldn’t pay to drive over there, but I wonder if there are any here in Delaware.  Back in the 1960s two of us would catch 50 a tide out of Indian River Bay or Massey’s Ditch.  Bloodworms were the prime bait and we would chum with cat food.  None of us had boats so we rented wood skiffs with very small outboards from the northside.
