State record 17.1-pound sheepshead caught from fishing boat out of Lewes
LEWES (Oct. 8, 2014) – DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife has confirmed a new state record in the Delaware Sport Fishing Tournament: a 17.1-pound sheepshead caught on Sept. 29. The fish was 28 inches long and had a girth of 24 inches.
David Walker of Boothwyn, Pa., who caught the fish in the lower Delaware Bay over a rock pile on a green crab, noted that his record catch was “delicious!” The catch is recognized as a Delaware record since the fish was caught from a boat out of and returning to a Delaware port.
The record catch was initially confirmed by Natural Resources Police Fish & Wildlife Enforcement officer AFC Joshua Hudson, and verified at the Lewes Harbour Marina in Lewes.
The previous record holder was Christopher H. Wentz, who caught a 15.11-pound sheepshead in 2012.
