Tuesday was as close to a perfect fishing day as you will ever see along the Delaware Coast.
The Old Grounds is finally producing decent flounder catches. One of the head boats out of Fisherman’s Wharf had an excellent catch on Monday and boats from Lewes Harbour Marina, and Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em did equally well on Tuesday.
Dianna at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em also told us she saw triggerfish, black sea bass, tog and dolphin on the cleaning table. The dolphin came from offshore while
the triggerfish and tog came in from inshore ocean structure.
Tommy at Lewes Harbour Marina said the bay continues to give up croaker, kings and a few keeper trout. Bloodworms work best on the croaker and kings while peeler crab is the best bait for the trout. The Lewes and Rehoboth Canal remains a good bet for keeper flounder. Gulp! or a long strip of cut bait or squid on a bucktail has been the best rig for catching flounder.
Clark at Old Inlet said croaker were caught during the outgoing current along the southside of the Inlet. Naturally, I was there on the incoming.
