WGMD Fishing Report 3-7-18

I finally found someplace that is producing fish.  Jerry Taylor at Taylored Tackle on old Route 13 between Seaford and Laurel, said the Nanticoke River and Broad Creek are both producing white perch.  Broad Creek has also seen some big yellow perch to over two pounds.  Minnows and blood or earthworms have been the best baits.  Jerry also said the spillway in Laurel has seen some crappie and short rockfish.  Once again minnows and bloodworms are the top producers.  There have been some herring caught, but they must be returned to the water.

Phillips Landing where the Nanticoke River and Broad Creek merge has a good boat launch as well as shore fishing access.  There is also a boat ramp in Seaford and a fishing pier at the spillway in Laurel.

I don’t think anyone will be fishing on Wednesday as we have a gale warning in effect.  This storm will hit us with northeast winds and could bring damage to the ocean beaches.  The storm over the weekend came in from the northwest damaging the Delaware Bay shoreline and the west facing beaches along the Inland Bays.
