WGMD Fishing Report 8-27-20


Wednesday was a very pleasant day on land, but the northwest wind made for a less than pleasant experience at sea.  The next few days are questionable as we begin to feel the effects of the hurricane.

I went down to Indian River Inlet Tuesday evening around 7:15 to take some photos.  When I arrived, there was not a single person fishing on either side.  The campground appeared to be full and the parking lot on the northside was nearly full.  It was a beautiful summer evening, yet not a single soul was fishing.

Finally, around 7:45 one guy began casting from the rocks at the west end of the campground.  He was catching six to eight-inch hickory shad on small metal lures with every cast.  Then his knots began to fail; four times in a row.

I stopped by Lewes Harbour Marina around noon on Wednesday just in time to see the Katydid unload an eight-man limit of flounder.

Rick’s Bait and Tackle reported that Ryan Kleban caught a four-pound flounder on a bucktail with Gulp! at the Old Grounds.
