Sept 24, 2018 Report

Lewes Harbour Marina - Monday, September 24, 2018

It's been a while since anyone has been able to get a good day of fishing in, but some of the local charter and head boats have been out in the last couple of days. Although the conditions have not been the greatest they came back to the dock with decent catches of trigger fish, flounder, sea bass, and sheepshead. If you venture up into the Delaware bay and find some good structure on the bottom you will find some trigger fish and sheepshead. Anglers have also pulled up some nice puppy black drum along with some kingfish and even a weakfish or two.

The surf action is starting to pick up a little bit with snapper blues, seal stripers and even some rumors of pompano being pulled out of the suds. I have spoken to a few surf anglers that frequent the point at Cape Henlopen and they are reporting that the bluefish are there and ion good numbers. Hopefully, the fall will produce some striper action and some bog bluefish. There are still a lot of baitfish in the area. This is a good sign of things to come, we hope they hang around and get the big fish to come and snack for a while this fall.

We are still open 7 days a week, so stop by and get all your bait and tackle needs before you take to the water to catch the fish of a lifetime. We have fresh bait in stock and are always getting fresh bait every couple of days. And don't forget that we have an extensive selection of terminal tackle, rods and reels. Also, we have cold drinks, snacks, ice and bug spray or sun tan lotion. If you forgot your rain gear or your sweatshirt when you left the house, no worries we have plenty in stock for you to choose from, stop by and see us.

Tightines everyone, Tommy Serbin
