Written on: September 21st, 2019 in Fishing Report

Happy Saturday, folks! It’s that beautiful time of year that only the locals know about, and there’s plenty of fish biting for everyone!


The mahi bite is on, as well as some scattered tuna. Some scattered white marlin releases as well as some mako sightings.


Inshore anglers landing croakers, rockfish, and a few flounder.

Hope everyone had a good summer season! Only a couple days left before it’s officially fall.

As always, wishing everyone tight lines and good times!


Fishing Report 9/16/19

It’s been a pretty slow week for fishing, thanks to the windy weather.

Here’s some pictures from this week in fishing:

While fishing on her birthday, Darla Williard of Harrisburg, PA, caught this 5.3lb and 24.5 inch flounder on the Judy V. with Capt. Chris Adams. Capt. Chris said she caught it using a minnow out at Site 10.
John, Carmen and Christian Ostrowski of Chadds Ford, PA fished at the Wilmington Canyon using plastics like Mold Craft and a Hawaiian Lure to hook up with these 3 beautiful fish. 2 weighed 78lbs and one at 74lbs, they also brought in some mahi weighing up to 13lbs.
Steve Beaudet of Newark, DE, Nick Merlino of Lewes, DE and Capt. Tom Dicampli of Wilm., DE fished at the Del-Jersey site using sand fleas with chartreuse Gulp to bring in this load of black sea bass. The largest fish weighed in at 2.6lbs.

Nice catches, everyone! Hopefully soon we will have more to report. I just saw a decent size tuna and swordfish hanging over at Hook ’em & Cook ’em, so we’ll have more to report on those later. These photos courtesy of Hook ’em & Cook ’em.

Thanks also to everyone who came out for our 1st Annual Autumn Art Festival! We had beautiful weather and a pretty good crowd that rolled through all day. Here’s a little wrap-up from that:

Signing off, and as always, wishing everyone tight lines and good times!

There were a lot of tuna spotted, but they just weren’t biting.

Inshore reports nice flounder hitting the docks.
