Thursday saw decent weather and some anglers connected while others, not so much.

Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina said the Pirate King came in from Delaware Bay with some kings and blowfish.  The Katydid fished ocean structure for a catch of flounder.

At Lighthouse View Bait and Tackle on the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park the report was decent-sized spot on bloodworms and a few short flounder on minnows and Gulp!.

Burt at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em told us the Bail Out came in from the canyons with 18 yellowfin tuna.  The head boats are finding a few flounder.  Dave Gorelick, Tom Drgon and Bob Dunn released the first white marlin of the season on June 19.

The report from Old Inlet Bait and Tackle was some kings from the surf on bloodworms.  Drifting sand fleas during the day and at night has accounted for a few keeper rockfish.  Bubble Gum Beach and the southside jetty were two locations mentioned as productive.

Friday looks bleak as small craft advisories are up for seas to six feet.  Saturday and Sunday should be fishable as winds and seas subside.
