Wednesday saw partly cloudy weather with a nice south to southeast wind so I went surf fishing on Three Rs Road. I arrived around 8: 30 AM to a flood tide and tried to fish with two rods. The critters were stripping my bloodworms so fast I had to go with one rod that I held as I slowly cranked the rig in a stop and start action back to the beach. That worked and I ended the day with five nice kings as I replaced the bait after every cast.
My friend Bob Baker fished the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal and the Broadkill River with a friend on Tuesday catching 27 flounder with five keepers. Last week he took a trip to Quimby and managed 31 flounder with seven keepers.
Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina told us about Shaun Trude who caught a 3.76-pound triggerfish off of ocean structure while on the Katydid. The rest of the party had a mixed bag of sea bass, ling and trout.
Burt at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em said the Captain Ike had seven yellowfin on Wednesday.
