SURF KINGS

Posted By Eric Burnley
Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay
Much better weather this week and boats were able to fish the bay and the ocean. We also saw improved surf fishing as more kings to over a pound were caught on bloodworms and strips of bunker or mullet. The Old Grounds and Site 11 will be the best bet ...

SLOT ROCKS!

Posted By Eric Burnley
Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay
Once again, we lost several days to the weather, but when the boats can access the bay and ocean they do catch fish. In the bay the reef sites produce kings, flounder, croaker and bluefish. The Old Grounds gave up some flounder and Massey’s Canyon saw decent chumming for bluefin ...

Posted By Eric Burnley
Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay
High winds from the southeast plagued fishermen until Friday when conditions finally improved. A few boats fished Delaware Bay on Thursday, but the ocean didn’t see much activity until the weekend. The reef sites in the bay have produced a mixed bag of croaker, kings, blues, flounder and ...

MIXED BAG

Posted By Eric Burnley
Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay
We had good fishing just about everywhere until Saturday when a coastal low created copious amounts of rain with winds to 40 knots. The final week of July does not look very promising, but if you want to catch fish heading into August I believe the reef sites in ...

The warm weather had a positive impact on fishing with improved catches in the bay and the ocean. The flounder action was decent at the Old Grounds, as well as reef sites 10 and 11. Limits are still rare, but catches average two keepers per person. Jigging with 6-inch ...

Two Delaware fishing seasons reopened last Sunday, July, 1. Tog opened with a 16-inch minimum size and four-fish bag limit. The summer striped bass season opened in the Delaware Bay and its tributaries with a slot of 20 to 25 inches. While we had no reports of ...

SPREADING OUT

Posted By Eric Burnley
Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay
When I say flounder fishing continued to improve, that means it went from terrible to passable. Shorts still dominate the catch and four-fish limits are rare, but if you put in the time and have some idea of how to catch flounder, you will have a good shot for one ...

Flounder fishing continued to improve with Reef Site 11 added to the locations that saw a fair number of keepers. The Lewes and Rehoboth Canal also saw decent action with a few keepers caught out of Indian River Bay at the VFW Slough and Massey’s Ditch. Jigging with a bright ...

OFFSHORE ACTION

Posted By Eric Burnley
Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay
Flounder fishing showed some improvement last week with keepers caught from the pier on Cape Henlopen State Park, Massey’s Ditch, the VFW Slough and the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal. A jig with a Gulp! mullet or crawfish in bright colors has been the hottest setup. The offshore bite really took ...
