The weather cooled off on Tuesday, but the wind continued to blow resulting in no boats going out of Lewes or Indian River to fish in the ocean or the bay. At least one boat fished the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal, but he didn’t catch anything on incoming water.
Bob Baker called late on Monday to report on a trip to Wachapreague, Virginia. He and Walt Omer fished the Inlet where Walt caught a six-pound flounder, his largest to date, on a Bob Baker rig.
Stopped by Lewes Harbour Marina where Eric was busy putting new stock on the shelves since there were no fish to clean.
At Lighthouse View Tackle on the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen State Park the report was keeper trout early in the morning on live mullet. The afternoon high tide brought blues, flounder and small rockfish all on mullet.
At Old Inlet Bait and Tackle they told me small bluefish and few kings were caught from the surf. Mullet is the best bait for the blues with bloodworms or FishBite bloodworms for the kings. Their surf tournament is this weekend.
This is Eric Burnley with your WGMD fishing report.
