Fishing Report

July 17th, 2014

Tautog season reopened in Delaware waters today, Thursday July 17. 5 fish a day with a 15" minimum size. We have live fleas and green crabs.

Flounder fishing is still good. The water is still cool. Had a report of 65 degree water by the Coast Guard station.

The flounder have been everywhere. In the inlet, in the bays, offshore on reef site 10. Gulp, minnows and squid are all working.

Small stripers around in the Inlet at night. Drifting fleas and floating eels are both working.

Daytime fishing in the Inlet is flounder and croakers. Use blood worms for the croakers.

Kings and croakers on the beach. Live bloods for them too.


Seabass reopened May 19. Minimum size is 12.5" and 20 fish a day. We are hearing about good catches on reef Site 11 and the new reef further offshore.

Tautog season will be closed from May 11 through July 17

New flounder regs took effect May 11 - 16" and 4 fish a day
