Friday was about as close to perfect fishing weather as you are going to get in Delaware. Bright sunshine, light winds and warm temperatures.
My wife Barbara and I left the Lewes Launch ramp around 2:30 PM to catch the incoming current in the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal. I was surprised to see the water temperature at 79 degrees. I was fishing with a round green bucktail decorated with a day-glow Gulp! crawfish. Barbara had a Bob Baker rig with a live minnow on the top and a day-glow Gulp! crawfish on the bucktail on the bottom. We drifted from Roosevelt Inlet to the Savanah Road Bridge and I caught one 14-inch flounder. Barbara had two crabs. We ran back to the inlet and drifted up the Broadkill River where the water temperature dropped to 72 degrees. I caught a 17-inch flounder. We headed back to the ramp at 6:00 PM.
Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina said the Katydid had a good catch of sea bass to 20 inches on ocean structure. The Grizzly had a mixed bag of black drum, trout and short flounder from Delaware Bay.
