Fishing Report 8-20-17

We are on the final day of the 2017 Flounder Pounder Tournament out of Paradise Grill and most of the anglers are out fishing today.  Final weigh-ins are at 6pm tonight, so good luck to everyone fishing today!

We are still seeing a variety of fish caught…and a big flounder every so often!

Allen Baker, Jerry Shockley and Zach Morris fish out at B-Buoy and caught a total of 6 keeper flounder. The largest weighed 4lbs and measured 28 inches while the rest of the fish weighed 2-3lbs.

Tom Healy of Fairfax, VA, was using Gulp bait on a jig head and caught this 5lb flounder while fishing south of B-buoy.

Mike Matsko of Ocean View, DE took his first trip to the Del-Jersey and came back with 2 keeper sea bass weighing in at 2.2lbs each and a 3.5lb flounder.  All were caught jigging with squid.

This 1.3lb triggerfish was caught by Denise Shuman of Millertown, PA while fishing in the Indian River Inlet along the jetty. She caught it using sand fleas.

Til next time, tight lines and good times.
