Wednesday was yet another great fishing day. Not only that, but it looks like we are going to have a good weather weekend.
The flounder fishing in the ocean has been a bit difficult. Not that flounder haven’t been caught, it’s just catching them has been hard work. The wind and the current haven’t been in the fisherman’s favor making for difficult drifts. While flounder to nine pounds were taken, four-fish limits have been rare.
Lewes Harbour Marina said Michael Angstadt has got the number on Canal flounder. He racked up two more measuring 18.75 and 19 inches on minnows. Alicen Sharp caught a big yellowfin tuna on the Portabella. The Bottom Line brought in a 25.5-pound yellowfin for Mike Daisy and a 10-pound dolphin for Keith Balgett. Jake and Steve Wiles fished from their kayaks at the pilings by the burned out part of the fishing pier on Cape Henlopen State Park to catch five keeper flounder. Carl Swinn fished Indian River Inlet early on Wednesday morning with mullet colored Storm swim shads to catch two rockfish measuring 35 and 33 inches.
