Nov 7, 2018 Report

Lewes Harbour Marina - Wednesday, November 07, 2018

The boats and anglers that were lucky enough to get a day out on the water yesterday, had a very good day catching sea bass and tog. Some of the local charter boats got their boat limit of tog, which this season was a feat in itself. This weather has really put a crimp in everyones fishing for tog, sea bass, flounder and every other species that is targeted in our waters.

I am hearing some far off rumors that a small group of stripers has been spotted off the coast of Atlantic City, NJ. And I have heard that fish up to 45” have been being caught off Ocean City, NJ. Hopefully that small group makes a pit stop off our coast to take a little break before continuing south to their winter home. There is still enough bait fish to keep them here for a little bit. Also the bait fish up in the Delaware bay should get their attention and get them to make a right turn to the bay.

If the weather gives up, and we can get out to get some fishing in before winter really sets in, the sea bass and tog fishing should be off the hook, only because the fisheries have not been overly fished thanks to other nature. Keep your fingers crossed and let’s hope we have a great end to the fall fishing season. Congratulations to the winners of our Tautog Tournament this year, !st Place- Joe McNeil, 2nd Place- Chris Ragni Jr, 3rd Place- Joe McNeil.
