WGMD Fishing Report 8-14-18


Denise Eddinger of Long Neck, DE caught this 7.2lb and 23 1/2 inch long tautog while fishing out at the Del-Jersey Land Reef on the “Paul B. Sands” with Capt. Randy Eddinger. Denise reported that they also had 70lbs of large and medium black sea bass along with this citation fish that was caught using squid.

Tuesday was a tad breezy, but not enough wind to cancel many fishing trips.

Last week it was the White Marlin Open and this week it’s the Flounder Pounder Tournament out of Paradise Cove Marina sponsored by Shorts Marine.  Boats may fish any three out of five days from August 15 to the 19th and the top prize is $100,000 or a new 25-foot Scout boat with all the options.  There is also a daily Calcutta worth $2,500 for the largest flounder of the day.  I would expect to see a lot of boats on the flounder grounds for the next five days.

At Lewes Harbour Marina Amanda said the Miss Kirstin had a good morning trip in the bay catching croaker, trout and blowfish.  Young lady Ashlynn Loughin caught a Delaware Youth Citation .86-pound king from the surf at Cape Henlopen

Ice House Tackle reported the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal is giving up spot, croaker and short flounder with a few keepers.

At Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em the report was flounder from the Old Grounds and blues at Fenwick Shoal.
