Fishing Report 8-26-17
Hang on to your hats. The wind has kicked up and looks to blow for awhile. The storms in Texas and Florida right now are keeping many of us glued to the weather stations. Folks heading out today are reporting good flounder catches, but only a few keepers in the mix. One fisherman out of Indian River Marina caught a potential state record tile fish. See pic and info below:
Tom Schanno of Halethorpe, MD caught this amazing Golden Tile fish while fishing at the Baltimore Canyon in 500 feet of water using a butterfly jig. This beautiful fish weighed 46.5lbs, measured 47 inches in length and had a 29 inch girth. Tom was fishing with Capt. Tom Perna of Alexandria, VA, on the Indian Giver out of Indian River Marina. It is pending DNREC’s certification, but looks like it will be the new state record for Delaware.
The Ocean Drifter crew, Christian, Carmen and John Ostrowski of Chadds Ford, PA had a great day of fishing out a Massey’s Canyon. They reported chunking with butterfish was slow that day but it turned out to be a good day for them with a 50.4lb and two at 45lbs.
