Nov 21, 2018 Report

Lewes Harbour Marina - Wednesday, November 21, 2018

This past week there have been several good days to fish. The local charter boats and head boats have been heading to deeper waters to get their limits on black sea bass. The sea bass seem to be plentiful with boat limits being caught on each trip. The tautog however, have been scarce, but if the captains were willing to put the time in some very nice tog have been being caught in the deeper water as well.

I’m pleased to see that some keeper stripers to 32 1/2” have finally showed up off the surf at Cape Henlopen state park. The point has given up a couple nice stripers. i hope this is a sign that the big fish in quantities will start making an appearance off our coast. It has been a while since we have had a good striper run in this area. Reports from Sea Isle NJ, Ocean City NJ, and Cape May NJ are spotty but the fish being caught are the big fish every angler dreams about, I am still hoping and praying that we get that blitz, and they stay around for more than the standard 1 week run.

We have eels, fresh bunker and clams. Stop by and grab your bait and tackle before you head out to catch your big keeper stripers. This weekend we have a great sale going on in the store starting on Black Friday. Stop in and grab some great deals on selected apparel, tackle, Rod/reel combos. This would be a great time to grab some early Xmas gifts for the special anglers in your life. Until next week, HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY FROM ALL OF US AT LHM.

Tightlines everyone, Tommy Serbin.
