Thursday was damp and chilly, but the wind stayed down and allowed for some folks to get out fishing. As for the weekend, fuhgeddaboudit.
I decided to drive down to the Inlet on Thursday morning just to see if anything was going on. I arrived as the incoming current was slowing and saw several folks trying for tog. I was there until the current changed from in to out and never saw a tog caught.
I did see a shad caught. The angler put it in a bucket with a small bluefish. He was using a small bucktail behind a casting sinker.
I checked out the parking lot at the boat ramp and there were four big trailers there. My guess is those boats may have been out trying for tog. I have no idea if they were successful.
There were three or four smaller boats drifting through the inlet. If they had any luck, I didn’t see it. The water was reasonably clear on the incoming.
I called Lewes Harbour Marina and Tommy said he had no reports of any fish caught from the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal or the Outer Wall.
