Trudy from Cedar Creek Tackle Shop says fishing in the Delaware Bay has been fair this week, with some nice flounder and a few blue fish in the Anchorage around site 6 & 7. Joe Morris from Lewes Harbor Marina reports just an average week with some croakers in the bay with the better catches around CH Bouy and the inner & oputer walls. Lots of throw back flounder, with the keeper sizes coming from the Star & Brown Shoal Sites. Dylan Martin from Newmanstown, PA., caught a nice citation 3lb 14oz Croaker weighed at the Lewes Harboar Marina.

Rick's Bait & Tackle reports small trout, croakers and some puppy drum being caught in Massey's Ditch on Fish Bites and clams. Rick said there seems to be more keeper flounder being caught in the Indian River and some really nice flounder up to 8-1/2lbs. in Rehoboth Bay. Sill fair catches of croakers off the North Seawall at Indian River. Stripers and bluefish off, both the North and South Jetties. Striper fishing remains best after dark, using live or artificial eels, dark colored plugs and storm lures.

Cory and Bill Felix, and Austin Hopkins from Rockville, MD, caught and released 2 stripers and 3 bluefish while fishing on the South Jetty. Dave Beall from Ocean View, DE while fishing from the Rocks on the South side of IR Inlet, caught 6 flounder over 20" using artificial Storm & Tsunami lures.

Vicky from Hook, Line & Sinker, on the Cape Henlopen Pier, reports cnice catches of croakers, spot, some small flounder and a few bluefish and trout. She says the best baits have been squid, bloodworms and Fish-Bites . (the artificial bloodworm).

The Head Boats out of Lewes and the Indian River are enjoying some good catches of flounder, sea bass and croakers on both full and half day trips. This is a good place to take a kid fishing. Something he will never forget.

Bottom fishing out of the Indian River, especially Southeast of "B" Bouy around the old grounds, and near Site 11 has provided some good catches of flounder and croakers.

Offshore fishing for tuna is still up and downwith some good catches on one day and netting none the next. Chunking has finally started, but many of the boats are trolling for tuna. Some good catches have been reported from the Washington Canyon, and at the notch of the Baltimore Canyon. The spectacle with Capt. Dick Peoples, mate Jeff Kovatch, and party with Nolan Soulas, his father Stephen, Unkle Randy, and Grandfather Bob Leinhauser, caught 8 yellowfintuna (released 3) and released 1 White Marlin, while trolling at the Washington Canyon. These fish took a Ballyhoo Bait.

Surf fishing along the Delaware Shore has slowed with some catches of croaker, spot, a few trout showing up after dark, and of course some skates and sharks. Best baits are bloodworms, Fish-Bites (artificial bloodworms), squid and clams.

Good Luck until next week, Take a kid fishing!!!

Bill
