If ever there was a perfect day to go fishing it was Thursday, so I did. We won’t talk about the weather for Friday and Saturday.
I arrived at Indian River Inlet around 7:00 AM. The current was just beginning to run in and by the time I rigged up a shad dart behind a one-ounce Stingsilver the current was cooking. Had a big hickory shad on my first cast and it was on. I didn’t catch a fish on every cast, but it was close. Lots of big shad, two herring and two bunker. The inlet is alive with fish. I feel certain there are huge striped bass under all that bait.
As I was leaving, around 10:00 AM, a fellow who was fishing west of me walked up and asked what kind of fish he had just caught. It was an eight-inch striped bass.
Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina said the only fish she saw were some tog that came in on a private boat.
Burt at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em said a few flounder have been caught in the Back Bays.
