WGMD Fishing Report 6-12-18


Anglers Jake Janney and Bill Murray, Hunter Hepbron, Mike Glenn and Ryan Janney, all from Cecil County, MD, fished on the Better Days at the Baltimore for blue fin tuna. They reported they caught these two keepers using naked ballyhoo on a spreader bar, but also said they went 12 for 14 and could have filled the boat with the school of fish that was there. They also said they caught them on other various baits and tackle, the fish were biting on anything that they threw out there.

Monday was a total blowout with northeast winds gusting to 30 knots and seas to seven feet.  A small craft advisory is posted for Tuesday so not much fishing will happen today.

At Lewes Harbour Marina, Tommy said the Katydid came in late on Sunday, but she had sea bass and flounder.  This is good news because both species have been scarce on ocean structure.

Lighthouse View Bait and Tackle told us folks fished the pier in less than ideal conditions catching a few flounder and spot.  More good news as the pier is the most popular fishing spot in Delaware and those of us who fish there certainly enjoy catching both of these fish.

Old Inlet Bait and Tackle had little to report as the surf was too rough to fish and no one came back with any rockfish from the inlet.  It will be Wednesday before we see much from the beach.

At Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em no boats sailed on Monday, but they did have reports from one boat that ran offshore on Sunday.  They had three bluefins.
