On Friday Harry Yingling and I attacked the Delaware Bay as promised. We left the Lewes Boat Ramp at 6:00 AM and headed for Reef Site 8, but the northeast head wind was a bit too much for two old men in a 16-foot tin boat. We ended up behind the Inner Wall where I caught several small trout on bloodworms until the wind laid out and we were able to make it out to the reef site. Once there I had a steady bite of small trout and kingfish until the wind turned back on with gusto and we headed for the inlet. By then it was noon so we did make one short drift up the Broadkill River before calling it a day. I ended up with enough kings for dinner, but Harry, who fished for flounder, only caught one skate.
The marine weather looks really bad with northeast winds and seas running five to seven feet in the ocean at least until Wednesday. Could be a good weekend to get those honey dos out of the way.
