WGMD Fishing Report 9-17-19


After driving through some pretty thick fog, I arrived at Indian River Inlet around 6:45 AM on Monday morning.  The current was running in, but no birds were working and after two hours of casting metal I gave up.  I didn’t have a hit and didn’t see anyone else catch a fish.

I moved my operation to Three Rs Road where I fished with sand flea and bloodworm FishBites.  Kept getting and missing tiny taps.  Dropped down to the smallest hooks I had and finally on my last cast at noon I caught a pompano on a FishBite sand flea.

Amanda at Lewes Harbour Marina said the Katydid came in with a load of sea bass and triggerfish.  Payton Bailey caught a 24-inch flounder at the Savanah Road Bridge on a white Gulp!.

Dianna at Hook ‘em and Cook ‘em said a private boat did an overnighter and came home with an 86-pound swordfish and five yellowfins between 40 and 50 pounds.  The Judy V had a good catch of sea bass, flounder and Spanish mackerel on her morning trip.
