WGMD Fishing Report 7-20-19


I finally got to go fishing on Thursday.  I was up at 0500 and at Indian River Inlet by 0545.  The tide was just starting in, but the current was still running out.  I set up just west of the bridge on the northside and as soon as the current began to run in, I started catching one to two-pound blues on a two-ounce Stingsilver.  I continued to catch them until I left them biting at 1000.  Just to my west, four men were catching one small flounder after another on Gulp! and live minnows.  They had two keepers by the time I left.

Captain Aaron Herd on the Gale Force also fished Indian River Inlet and his party caught nine keeper flounder to 4.4 pounds.

Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em has weighed in another potential state record false albacore.  This one was caught on a Flippy-Floppy Thing by Jason Conrad while fishing the 19-Fathom Lump on Captain Travis Scott’s Canyon Hunter.  The big fish weighed 22.6 pounds which is 1.1-pound heavier than the previous record set two weeks ago
