The Black drum have been keeping all the anglers attention, especially the die hard anglers who can’t wait to get their lines wet. The local private charter and head boats have been doing very well on the evening bite. The fresh clams seem to be doing the trick, although sand fleas have been working as well. Getting good reports from the coral beds off Broad kill Beach, as well as coming from the Jersey side. We have had some monsters weighed in at the shop on a nightly basis. Our superstar fish cleaner Tony “ bag o bait” Filliponi has been cleaning 30-35 black drum a night. His arms are like rubber bands, lol. Keep up the good work Tony……………

At the Cape Henlopen pier, steady reports of keeper flounder have been coming in on a regular basis. The big blues have been spotty, mostly late afternoon to evening. Quite a few bigger stripers have also been landed on or around the pier. The fishing has been very steady out there, you may want to give it a shot. Don't forget to stop in and get some fresh bunker, finger mullet, and all your rigs at our shop. We even have rod and reel combos for those of you who sometimes are so excited to go fishing they leave their gear sitting on the porch.

Our shop is fully stocked with all your fishing and boating needs. Stop by and give us a look you will be surprised at the inventory we carry.

Tighlines everyone, Tommy Serbin

The weather didn't stop the hardcore anglers from fishing our annual canal flounder tournament last Friday. The rain was hard at times, the wind was not friendly, but the flounder didn't run and hide. We weighed in 30-35 flounder, the heaviest coming in at 3.91lbs.


  1. Steve Friend was the winning angler this year, congratulations Steve!
  2. Jeff Semans took 2nd with 3.77lbs
  3. Keith Stevenson took 3rd with 3.03lbs
  4. Chris Smith took 4th with 2.81lbs
  5. Jesse Steele took 5th with 2.66 lbs
  6. Jackson Ostroski took 6th with 2.40lbs
  7. Matt Mitchell rounded out in 7th with 2.27lbs

Great job and congratulations from everyone here at Lewes Harbour Marina. Thanks to all who donated to such a worthy cause, mark the tournament down on your calendar for next year.

The black drum fishing has started to pick up, all the charter and head boats have been putting anglers on the big fish for the last week or so, the bay is producing some giant black drum. Sea bass is also in full swing, we have seen boat limits from the boats that are heading to the bass grounds when the weather permits. This week looks like we will get a break from the rain and hopefully the boats will get a lot of trips in for the sea bass.

The surf is turning up catches of puppy drum, stripers and blue fish. The fishing at the Cape Henlopen Pier has started to pick up. Anglers are even getting keeper flounder out there along with the toothy yellow eyed devils ( bluefish).

Dont forget to stop in at Lewes Harbour Marina to get your fresh bunker, minnows and surf clams. We have all new rods and reels from Diawa, Shimano, Penn, and Siegler. We also have all the rigs, weights, hooks and line you need. We have combos for the surf, boat, and jettys, from top of the line all the way to inexpensive for the angler who only gets out a couple times a year. Stop in and say hello to us, come check us out.

There are SOME stripers being caught locally, New Jersey waters are still turning up big fish. The bite still seems to be around Sea Isle and north. Fish have been caught off Cape May and some even further south off Rehoboth. Tautog are still being caught when the weather allows boats to leave the harbor. Maybe with this system moving up the coast it will spark a major bite to turn on, we shall see. Remember, we have all your striper lures available. Don't forget that special angler on your Xmas list this year. Stop in and check out our holiday specials as well as our Stocking Stuffer ideas for your special angler. We have a full assortment of MOJO lures, Manns Stretches, Run-Off Lures, and Addiction Baits. We still have plenty of live eels and live spot. For those that are still fishing for Tautog, we have Plenty of White Leggers, Green Crabs, and Asian Box crabs. Stop in and check us out. From all of us at LHM, Happy Holidays!

Well, it’s that time of year again. When the winter blues disappear, and it's time to get the lines wet. Early this spring fishing was slow thanks to mother nature playing with our heads. We have seen a rise on the number of people fishing and we are starting to see more fish being caught. The fish have started to move in, and not just in the rivers and canals. We are seeing some blues from the surf as well as black drum, small stripers, and a fair amount of keeper flounder both from the surf and the Cape Henlopen fishing pier. The canal here in Lewes has been producing some keeper flounder as well. Hopefully, the weather cooperates with us and remains decent enough to get the fishing red hot. Some catches that have been brought to us at the shop in the last week have been, Paul Hazzard and Allison Luden, both with citation Blue catfish weighing in at 20.5 lbs, and 7.5 lbs. Mark Brown from Lewes caught a 7.66 citation worthy Tautog on the Katydid. Karl E. Hitchens landed a 2.78 lb, 15.5” Porgy on a recent trip aboard the Grizzly.

Just a reminder, don't forget to sign up for our annual canal flounder tournament which is going to be held on Friday, May 18th 2018. Fee is $40.00 per angler, $20.00 of the fee will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Foundation. Tournament shirts are available at the shop now, the cost is $20.00. Get them while you can, a great new design this year.
