WGMD Fishing Report 6-25-18


Jeff Strayer of Loysville, PA, Grady Kehl, Brian Wolfenberger, of York,
PA, Clay Harrison of Boyertown, PA, Eddie Kehl of Baltimore, MD and
Bill Deihm of Honeybrook, PA trolled ballyhoo on spreader bars just south of the Baltimore Canyon and brought back yellow fin and blue fin tuna. The largest weighed in at 44.4lbs

Sunday saw normal summer weather, but the catching was slow.

Steve at Smith Bait and Tackle in Leipsic said flounder have been caught on squid and minnows or a bucktail with nuclear chicken Gulp! at the Crossover. Miah Maull Shoal saw some rockfish taken on peeler crab. Keeper sized trout have been caught at Reef Site 4 also on peeler or a white bucktail with a purple worm.

Clay Harrison of Boyertown, PA saw this 7.2lb smooth puffer swimming on top of the water and threw out minnows to catch it out at B-Buoy.

At Lighthouse View Bait and Tackle they said while most of the flounder caught from the pier are short, a nice 22 incher was taken on Sunday morning. Spot action continues to be productive with bloodworms the top bait.

Tommy at Lewes Harbour Marina told us they saw some kings come in from the beach that were caught on bloodworms. The Katydid had a catch of flounder from ocean structure.

Over in the Maryland portion of the Chesapeake Bay, chumming has been producing limits of rockfish from Hackett’s and Podickory Point, Love Point and jigging has been decent at the various bridge pilings.  With summer weather you want to be out very early to avoid the heat.
