As promised, the weather went downhill fast on Tuesday. Wednesday looks OK for the first day of the Flounder Pounder Tournament.
Captain Aaron Herd on the Gale Force had slow fishing during the first 2.5 hours of his Tuesday charter and then caught them nine flounder to 5.5 pounds during the next 1.5 hours.
Steve Kramark fished Massey’s Canyon with his wife Kelly on Sunday on their boat Catch 23. That’s right, the other guy stole Steve’s boat name. They had a nice dolphin in the box when a mystery fish hit a wide tracker lure and Kelly was on the rod. After a spirited fight the fish turned out to be a 28.2-pound wahoo, Kelly’s first.
Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina said Brian Riger caught a 7.59-pound flounder at the Old Grounds. Captain Keith Beebe on the Surface Tension fished the canyons on Monday bringing in 29 golden tilefish. Shawn Hastings caught a 21 and an 18-inch flounder out of the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal.
The Captain Ike caught a boat limit for their party on Monday.
