Flounder are still biting at the Old Grounds, however, the action has been sporadic. Anglers trolling for bluefish at Fenwick Island are still catching using spoons. A few keeper rockfish were caught at the Indian River Inlet at night. Sheepshead and triggerfish are hitting on sand fleas at the Inlet during the day. Not much action happened in the surf this week, but anglers can expect a mix of kingfish, skates, and dogfish in the surf.
Anglers are catching a mix of flounder, triggerfish, spadefish, and sea bass at Delaware Bay reef sites. The Inner Wall and Outer Wall have provided a few sheepshead and triggerfish on squid and sand fleas. Reports from the Cape Henlopen fishing pier: Still waiting on the croaker. A few small ones have been caught this week, but no reports of croaker near keeper size. A few keeper flounder have also been caught on minnows at the pier. White perch and catfish continue to bite at Port Mahon and Woodland Beach with bloodworms and bunker serving as the top baits.
Most rivers in Delaware were murky this week after large rain storms passed through over the weekend. Anglers targeting white perch and catfish can find plenty of them in the C&D Canal. Bloodworms are the best bait for perch, while bunker has been working on the catfish. The Brandywine River continues to provide decent bass action along with a good musky bite.
It’s been a good week for bass fishing. Jessica Byrne landed the biggest smallmouth bass I’ve ever seen. The fish weighed four pounds. She caught it using a bass torpedo. James Baffone hauled in a largemouth bass weighing up to six pounds at the Millville by the Sea Pond. He was using a live perch. Eleven-year-old Joshua Kenton pulled in a 5-pound, 10-ounce largemouth on his family farm. Taylored Tackle reported good largemouth and pickerel action at Records Pond with anglers using crank baits. Reports from Captain Bones Bait & Tackle indicated decent bass action at Garrisons Lake, Lums Pond, and Noxontown Pond with frogs, senkos, and chatterbaits working the best.
