Friday was a nice day and my friend Mac McNaught and I were on the water by 6:00 AM out of the Lewes Boat Ramp. My plan was to run out to the Outer Wall and try for rockfish, but the northeast wind put a halt to that kicking up three-foot seas in Roosevelt Inlet. We then fished the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal all the way to the Railroad Bridge catching one oyster cracker.
We ran back to the inlet and the wind had died out so we tried fishing the bay in front of Beach Plum Island. We played catch and release with spot and trout on FishBite bloodworms until noon then called it a day.
After day two, El Nino remains in first place with their 8.6-pound flounder. The Mac Attack has taken over second and won the day two Calcutta with a 7.2 pounder.
Captain Cary Evans on the Grizzly didn’t fish the tournament on Friday. He ran a sea bass charter and brought in a boat limit for his party. Captain Keith Beebe was able to cull some keeper flounder at Site 11 for his party on Surface Tension.
