WGMD Fishing Report 3-30-19


Friday proved to be the best day of 2019 with temperatures in the mid-70s and Saturday should be even better.  Don’t ask about next week.

I went to the fishing pier at Massey’s Landing to test my hypothesis that winter flounder had returned to Delaware.  I fished the last of the outgoing current and the first of the incoming drowning a dozen bloodworms and catching exactly one horseshoe crab.  So much for my winter flounder idea. 

A few other hopeful anglers came and went while I was there and if they caught anything I failed to see the result.  The water was very clear, but very cold.  Even with the black headed gulls back and the dogwoods blooming I don’t think the summer flounder have arrived.

The Fish Bound out of Ocean City had a very good day on Thursday bringing in a boat limit of tog to 10 pounds and releasing several large females to 14 pounds.  I suspect they were back out again on Friday.

Lenny Rudow’s Fish Talk reported big snakeheads in Blackwater Refuge on live minnows fished under a bobber.
