WGMD Fishing Report 6-15-18


Small craft advisories were up on Thursday so most boats that normally fish the ocean were tied to the dock.  The weekend looks good and I hope everyone gets to wet a line.

We stopped by the fishing pier on Cape Henlopen State Park around noon and there were quite a few folks fishing the pier.  The water didn’t look too good and I didn’t see anything caught, but the tide was falling when we arrived.  Checking with Lighthouse View Tackle I found out that at least one keeper flounder had been caught on the rising tide.

No one fished from Lewes Harbour Marina according to Julie.  This should improve as we get better weather on the weekend.  There were a fair number of boats in the canal, but if they caught a flounder they didn’t check in with Julie.

At Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em Chris said the Knock on Wood spent the night offshore and came back with his three bluefin tuna.  Today, Friday, June 15, the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control will Finally sink the old Cape May Lewes ferry boat Twin Capes.
