June 26, 2018 Report

Lewes Harbour Marina - Tuesday, June 26, 2018

The fishing has started to pick up a little bit, the weather has been nice for beach goers but not ideal for anglers. The Delaware bay has been giving up some bigger kingfish, and some keeper sea trout. The numbers aren't off the charts but are steadily picking up. Some flounder have also been caught on the reef sites as well.

The canal has been good for anglers chasing flounder. I have seen the size getting bigger as summer starts to warm up. Anglers are fishing from Roosevelt Inlet down to the bridges and beyond. The baits and rigs that seem to be working are top-bottom rigs tipped with gulp and some minnows or long pieces of strip bait like mackerel fillets, bunker fillets or a nice long piece of squid. The colors are the standard glow, chartreuse, or pearl. Try to incorporate something with some flash to get the flounders attention. Keep the rig moving, and you will have more luck in landing the keepers.

The shark action out in the bay can absolutely be a fun day for everyone, lots of anglers are having a lot of fun catching and releasing the big sharks. We have all your sharking needs as far as bait, pre-made shark rigs, floats and balloons.

Have a safe and awesome 4th of July. Stop by and see us.

Thanks Everyone and Tightlines, Tommy Serbin

Lewes Harbour Marina - Monday, June 18, 2018

Well, it’s that time of year again. School is out, graduations have come and gone, it’s now time to get out on the water and get some quality fishing time on the water. The fishing is starting to get better as the days go on, we hope it continues to progress in the coming weeks.

The Delaware bay is starting to show signs of life on the reef sites. Some anglers have been able to catch some king fish, and the flounder have been starting to show up as well. And as always the dogfish, skates and occasional sea robin. The canal has been giving up some nice size flounder up to 23” up and down the dock. Up by Roosevelt Inlet the fishing has been steady and at times, anglers have been catching a mix bag of flounder, smaller stripers, and even a bluefish or two. The baits that have been working in these areas has mostly been Gulp, squid, minnows. The colors of Gulp that seem to be working well are the usual suspects, Glow, Chartreuse, and even pink. With the flounder, your approach has to be the same if you were playing with a cat and a piece of string. When your pulling the string across the floor, the cat will follow and pull at the string. When you stop the cat loses interest, flounder act in the same manner. Flashy is always the best route to take, flashy movement will hold the fish’s attention.

The surf has been turning up some king fish, small stripers, and flounder. The Cape Henlopen Pier has been producing some spot, and croaker as well as keeper size flounder.

As far as the offshore bite goes, the tuna have been keeping the anglers moving around from lumpy bottoms all the way to the Baltimore canyon. Some Mahi-Mahi have been caught as well, big eye, yellowfin, and bluefins are putting the anglers skills to the test. Thresher sharks have been spotted in a few spots feeding on top of the water, and the mako action seems to be steady but slow.

We have all of your offshore baits in stock, as well as a full line of offshore rigs, reels, and rods. We have a large selection of baits for whatever fishing you may be doing. Stop by and see us and grab your ice, snacks and drinks for your day out on the water. We wish everyone a safe and happy summer.

Tightlines everyone, Tommy Serbin.
