WGMD Fishing Report 8-24-20


Sunday was a good fishing day and good fish were caught.  The rest of the week looks like two to three-foot seas and west winds.  Take lots of DEET.

Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina said on Saturday the Strike Zone had tuna and sea bass.  The Chasin’ Tail had a good catch of sea bass over ocean structure.  The Reel Chaotic fished the Wilmington Canyon for a 47.7-pound true albacore and they released a white marlin.  Kevin Legates on the Sea Hunter took over the lead on the golden tile category of the Lewes Harbour Marina Honor Board with a 25.8-pounder.  Kyle Falgowski has been catching nice sheepshead on bay structure by using two sand fleas per hook.

On Sunday, Frank Tucker and a friend fished out of Indian River over ocean structure to catch their eight fish flounder limit.

At the fishing pier on Cape Henlopen State Park, Lighthouse View Tackle reported a slower day.  Spot and croaker were still caught on bloodworms and FishBites.
