WGMD Fishing Report 8-5-18

Sunday was beautiful!  Calm seas, light winds and the fish were snapping.

Jeff Waxman was kind enough to take me to A Buoy on his boat where we put three keeper flounder in the box out of six we caught.  Jeff was high hook with five fish while I caught one, but it was a keeper.  We both used six-inch Gulp! twister tails in nuclear chicken.

When I arrived at Lewes Harbour Marina to have Tony clean my catch he was finishing up a job cleaning 24 flounder and six sea bass caught by eight anglers over ocean structure on the Katydid. 

There was a large crowd on the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park according to Lighthouse View Bait and Tackle.  Spot fishing has been pretty good after dark while croaker are more active on high tide.  Bloodworms will catch both fish.  A few keeper flounder have been caught on minnows.

A Rick’s Bait and Tackle they weighed in a 5-pound flounder for Evelyn Chutz caught on a live spot at Site 10.
