WGMD Fishing Report 5-20-18


Saturday was almost as nasty as Friday and, to the best of my knowledge, no boats went out on the ocean or bay.

At Lewes Harbour Marina Tom said while no one was out during the day on Saturday, a few boats were planning to try the night drum bite in Delaware Bay.

At Lighthouse View Tackle at the fishing pier on Cape Henlopen State Park the report was nothing happening on the pier or from the beach alongside the pier.  The blues and flounder should return when the weather clears.

Old Inlet Bait and Tackle said a few anglers have been working the beach at night with purple and black SP Minnows and Bombers.  They couldn’t fish on Friday night due to rough seas, but were back out on Saturday night.

At Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em Mike said no one went out to the ocean on Saturday, but they did see two flounder caught in the VFW Slough.  Sea bass fishing has been very good when the boats can sail.  With small craft advisories up, Sunday does not look promising.
