Monday was another hot and steamy day with decent summertime fishing in the bay and ocean. The water is finally warming up and we are seeing more flounder caught from inshore locations such as the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal and Indian River Bay. This will not last all summer because once the water rises to an uncomfortable lever for flounder, 72 degrees, they will head out to the cooler water in the ocean.
Burt at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em reported that sea bass and flounder were caught on the Judy V.
Lighthouse View Tackle on the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park said they saw spot, a few flounder and croakers caught on Monday. Bloodworms for the spot and croaker with Gulp! or minnows for the flounder.
Captain Beau on the Skipjack brought in a boat limit of sea bass from ocean structure on Sunday.
Brian Davis fished from the rocks at Roosevelt Inlet with Gulp! on a bucktail and caught flounder and small trout.
Old Inlet said a few large rockfish have been caught at night from the jetties on swimshads and live eels.
