Wednesday was a pretty nice day with sunny skies and reasonable temperatures and winds. Thursday is looking good as well, but Friday could see seas to five feet making for a rough ride to the sea bass grounds.
Once again, I drove down to Indian River Inlet in an attempt to catch a bluefish or shad. Once again, I was skunked. I planned my arrival to coincide with the beginning of incoming water and I was right on target. Unfortunately, the water that came in was just as dirty as the water that went out. Casting my Stingsilver and shad dart produced nothing, nor did I see anyone else catch a fish either on a lure or bait.
Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina did check in a 33-inch rockfish caught at Broadkill Beach on sand fleas by John Davis. Captain Pete Haines took the Top Fin fun fishing and found a few more tog. Hunter Selby and his Dad fished Delaware Bay on their boat Miss Meaner and caught two black drum on sand fleas and clam.
