WGMD Fishing Report 9-12-18


Cousins, Alexis and Jeb Zolper, both from Rehoboth Beach, DE fished out at the Lightship with chunks of mullet to bring in this catch of mahi. The largest fish weighed 3lbs and was caught by Alexis.

Thursday saw winds and seas increase as the outer bands of Hurricane Florence move towards the Carolina Coast.  As this is written on Thursday afternoon it looks like the storm will miss Delaware, but the effects will be felt over the next two or three days.  In other words, another weekend down the drain.

I did hear that the Katydid took the Wednesday group out on Wednesday and they caught some flounder.

A call to Lighthouse View Tackle on the pier at Cape Henlopen State Park reveled the mullet are beginning to run out of the bay and are schooling up around the pier.  As you might expect, bluefish are hot on their tails.  Spot are still in good supply on bloodworms and short flounder are still caught on live minnows.  As of Thursday afternoon they had not heard anything about closing the state park. 

On Monday, September 17, an informational hearing on the Massey’s Landing dredge project will be held from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at the South Coastal Library, 43 Kent Avenue in Bethany Beach.
