WGMD Fishing Report 5-31-19

568


Thursday was warm and the wind picked up out of the south in the afternoon.  Thunderstorms will pass by the beach in the evening and the wind will go northwest on Friday.  Saturday looks good with a light northeast wind and sunshine.

The bloom is off the sea bass as many of the keeper-sized fish have been caught.  The charter and head boats are still scoring keepers with ling and blues added to the menu so most anglers are going home with a decent number of fish in their coolers.  Flounder will arrive soon.

Old Inlet Bait and Tackle said keeper rockfish are still being caught by the night shift working the jetty with Storm Shads and plugs.  The incoming current in the evening has brought bluefish to the inlet.  They will hit bucktails and metal.  Fenwick Island saw kings caught from the beach on bloodworms and FishBite bloodworms.  One angler had at least a dozen of the tasty critters.

At the fishing pier on Cape Henlopen State Park, Dave at Lighthouse View Tackle told me it was a slow pick of small blues and flounder.
