WGMD Fishing Report 7-9-19


Monday was much cooler with plenty of wind and rain.  Small craft advisories were posted for the bay and ocean so no boats that I could find ventured away from the dock.  This change in the weather could result in a change in the fishing, but we will have to wait until Tuesday and Wednesday to find out.  The inshore bottom fishing is the area where the biggest change is needed as the flounder and black sea bass action has been slow.

Captain Aaron Herd, out of Indian River Marina, did get out for a short trip on Monday morning catching his party a nice flounder out of the Inlet.

Lighthouse View Tackle on the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park said a few anglers braved the weather to catch a few spot and flounder.

Old Inlet Bait and Tackle told us rockfish to over 40 inches were caught from the jetty on Sunday night.  Sand fleas, eels and Storm shads were the top baits.  Triggerfish are beginning to show up at the inlet along with the occasional sheepshead on sand fleas and green crabs.
