Friday was a scorcher! The hot temps didn’t keep most folks at home and the beaches and boat ramps were packed, or so I was told. There is not a fish in the world that would get me out of the house on a 4th of July weekend.
Tommy at Lewes Harbour Marina said the Top Fin with Captain Pete Haines had a family from Colorado out trying to catch something they don’t have out west. He filled the bill with three brown sharks and a dusky to 200 pounds. The Snow Goose fished the Elephant Trunk to catch some 35 to 40-pound yellowfin on black and purple trackers. Bill Morris had Josh Morris on the Tradewinds to catch a 45-pound yellowfin and four big blues. The Strike Zone had seven nice Spanish mackerel and two blues.
Burt at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em said the Judy V had flounder on the morning trip. He also saw some cobia, sea bass and flounder from the inshore grounds. Spanish mackerel and bluefish are available at Fenwick Shoal.
