WGMD Fishing Report 7-8-19


Sunday saw the holiday weekend end with a little less heat, but continued good fishing.

From Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina we learned that young Gus and Gibb Morris caught triggerfish and trout while fishing bay structure on the Katydid. Michael Stutter had a 51-pound yellowfin and a 17.9-pound dolphin while Chris Durham had a 16.8-pound dolphin from the Baltimore Canyon.  They fished on the Storm Rider and pulled spreader bars, ballyhoo with skirts and daisy chains.  The Grizzly caught a mixed bag of flounder, triggerfish, tog, trout and blues from bay structure.

From Lighthouse View Tackle on the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park we learned that the spot fishing remains good on high tide.  Bloodworms or FishBite bloodworms have been the best bait.  Kayak fishermen who jig minnows or Gulp! around the burnt pilings at the end of the pier catch good numbers of keeper flounder.

Burt at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em told us bluefin tuna continue to come in from the inshore lumps with trolling the top technique.  Big blues and dolphin are also taken.
