OCEAN

No keeper rockfish were reported this week from the Indian River Inlet, however, anglers are catching small bluefish, and a few flounder. The bluefish have been hitting metal lures, and spoons. Massey’s Ditch has provided decent flounder fishing this week with anglers catching a few over four pounds. Boaters that have been able to make it out to the canyons in rough seas have had luck catching tuna. Don Weitzel reeled in two yellowfin tuna weighing 67 pounds, 8 ounces, and 51 pounds, 8 ounces at Poorman’s Canyon. He weighed the fish in at the Lewes Harbour Marina. In Virginia, Jim Steele hauled in a large 47-inch red drum that he caught in the surf at Assateague. A few smaller red drum were reported in Lewes as well.

Anglers fishing Bowers Beach from shore are catching flounder, sea trout, bluefish, and croaker. At Woodland Beach anglers are catching white perch, catfish, rockfish, and a few flounder. Peeler crab and bloodworms have been the top baits. From the Inner and Outer Walls anglers are catching sheepshead, tautog, and flounder on sand fleas, and green crab. Brad Young and John Young Sr. brought in a tautog and a keeper flounder to the Lewes Harbour Marina that they caught at the Outer Wall on sand fleas. Anglers fishing the Cape Henlopen fishing pier have been successful hauling up keeper flounder on mullet. Blues, croaker, and spot have also been caught at the pier.

The Lewes-Rehoboth Canal has seen a few flounder and croaker caught this week. In Maryland, the fall stocking of nearly 28,000 brown, golden, and rainbow trout has begun.  For more information about for trout stocking locations, go to http://dnr.maryland.gov/Fisheries/Pages/trout/stocking.aspx. In White Clay Creek, trout stocking will begin in Mid-October.

PONDS

I made one last fishing trip to Deering Lake, New Hampshire. Despite poor weather, I hooked up with a few smallmouth bass and pickerel on a brush hog. Jessica Byrne used a chartreuse shad dart and pulled in two yellow perch. This is the time of year when algae-covered ponds should start to clear up, and allow for decent bass fishing before the bass move to deeper waters.
