Tuesday’s weather was just about perfect for fishing and for once my friend Harry Yingling and I were able to take advantage of it. We started at Reef Site 6 in the Delaware Bay around 8:00 AM on the last of the falling tide. The water was pretty dirty and the bite was pretty slow. After catching a couple of spot and one tiny flounder we moved to Site 8 just as the current went slack. Once the incoming got going the water cleared up and the fish turned on. We had steady action from small trout and decent-sized kings. Harry hooked something that ran him all around the boat. I thought it was a shark. Turned out it was the biggest trout I have seen in Delaware Bay in 20 years. It came off the hook at the boat. We were back at the dock around 3:00 PM.
Lighthouse View Tackle on the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park said spot and flounder were taken on Tuesday.
Old Inlet said Massey’s Ditch saw good fishing for spot and flounder.
Captain Cary Evans on the Grizzly ran two trips to Delaware Bay catching flounder and kings.
