WGMD Fishing Report 4-19-18


Wednesday was an improvement as far as the weather, but a stop at Lewes Harbour Marina revealed that no boats had set sail.  I did speak with Captain Ted who was getting the Angler and the Pirate King ready for a Thursday launch.  Most of the remaining boats that sail from here are still on the hard.

Leaving there I headed for Milton to do a little fishing from the town dock at the head of the Broadkill River.  I used nice, fresh nightcrawlers on a small circle hook fished under a bobber.

I was the only one there for a while, but was joined by another hopeful angler who was casting a small crankbait as he walked the shoreline.  He had no success and soon departed.

My next companion also fished with bait under a bobber.  He made several casts and finally connected with a good-sized crappie that he quickly released.  I asked what sort of bait he was using and he said it was a small, imitation minnow.  It looked like a fly tied to look like a shiner.  That was the only fish I saw before departing.
