Wednesday was another beautiful summer day and while big seas from the hurricane offshore kept most boats close to the beach, good numbers of fish were caught.
Diana at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em had some great news for flounder fishermen. A party of four on a private boat fished east of B Buoy to catch their limit of flounder. All 16 keepers were caught on six-inch Gulp! jigged over ocean structure. The Judy V had some flounder on her morning trip. A boat fishing at Fenwick Shoal caught black drum and triggerfish. A few keeper flounder were caught out of the inlet.
Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina said the Katydid came in from the ocean with a catch of flounder. The Miss Kirstin had flounder and sea robins from the ocean. A few keeper flounder were caught from the Canal.
Lighthouse View Tackle on the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park reported good fishing for spot with the occasional croaker caught on bloodworms.
Old Inlet reported a 17-inch sheepshead caught from the rocks on a sand flea. Blues to 12 inches were caught on metal lures.
