WGMD Fishing Report 8-8-18


The Toast will take their two lay days on Wednesday and Thursday so I won’t be out again until Friday.  The current leaders are the same as on Tuesday with the exception of the Tuna category where the Blinky 4 took over first place with a 73.5 pounder.

While I was out in the canyons chasing marlin folks were doing pretty good fishing inshore for flounder and tuna.  Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina told us Dan McGreedy had a 4.73-pound flounder and Bob Murphy caught two flounder weighing 3.8 and 3.9 pounds as part of a boat limit during a trip on the Katydid.  Tom Coyle, Matt McCurry and Joe Walker caught some very nice flounder at B Buoy using squid and shiners.  Young angler Phillip Long fished from the Cape Shores Pier and caught a limit of flounder on Gulp! and minnows.  Gary Ebling had a 46.5-pound bluefin tuna on the chunk at the 12-Fathom Lump.

The report from Lighthouse View Tackle on the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park was good fishing for spot and croaker all day on Wednesday.
