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.
- Steve Friend was the winning angler this year, congratulations Steve!
- Jeff Semans took 2nd with 3.77lbs
- Keith Stevenson took 3rd with 3.03lbs
- Chris Smith took 4th with 2.81lbs
- Jesse Steele took 5th with 2.66 lbs
- Jackson Ostroski took 6th with 2.40lbs
- 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.
Tightlines Everyone, Tommy Serbin.
