Fishing Report for November 8, 2018 The Upper Bay has seen white perch and catfish along the shoreline from New Castle to Port Mahon. There was also a report of a few 28 to 30-inch rockfish caught out of the Leipsic River. The Broadkill River and the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal also have good numbers of white perch. The Outer Wall and the Ice Breakers have given up lots of tog, but most are too small to keep. One boat reported catching 60 and only keeping six. At the Inlet, small tog have been caught and a rare keeper. Live eels fished after dark have caught a few keeper rockfish. The Back Bays still held some flounder. Massey’s Ditch and the VFW Slough were two locations where these fish were caught on live minnows. The fishing pier at Massey’s Ditch saw small tog and a few flounder. In the Inshore Ocean, structure produced five citation tog for anglers on the Katydid on Wednesday. Earlier we had reports of good sea bass action at the Del-Jersey-Land Reef. No reports came in from offshore. The surf has been unproductive due to the high winds and heavy rains. In freshwater, bass and pickerel are available from the local ponds with live minnows or shads the top baits. The spillway at Laurel has seen good fishing for crappie and catfish. White Clay Creek is still open for trout fishing. Great fishing can sometimes happen even when conditions seem unpromising.

Fishing Report for November 1, 2018 Not much change from last week as white perch and catfish remain the best bet for Upper Bay shorelines and the tidal creeks and rivers. The bay reef sites did not see much activity as the weather made fishing this structure very difficult. If and when the wind machine slows down, there should be tog, triggerfish and perhaps a few flounder on these sites. The Inner and Outer walls give up lots of tog, but very few keepers. A month-long tog tournament ended with a five-pound fish at the top of the leader board. White perch action in the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal has been good with bloodworms the best bait. A few flounder have been caught, but they will likely be moving out soon. At the Inlet, blues will move in on incoming water, but not on every tide. Lots of tog being caught, but once again, most are sub-legal. Night time jetty fishermen have connected with keeper rockfish on live eels. A few flounder remain in the Back Bays at Massey’s Ditch and the VFW Slough. The pier at Massey’s Ditch has seen a few flounder and short tog. In the Inshore Ocean, the Del-Jersey-Land Reef and Site 11 saw good sea bass fishing when the boats could leave the dock. Offshore, the Boy’s Toy brought in four swordfish last Friday. In freshwater, pond fishing is still productive for bass and pickerel. The muddy water requires lures that emit a sound that calls fish to something they can’t see. The upper reaches of the tidal rivers and creeks also hold bass and pickerel plus some crappie. The spillway in Seaford is one good spot to catch crappie. The weather hasn’t been great, but don’t give up on fishing this year yet. Read the full report at https://dnrec.alpha.delaware.gov/fish-wildlife/fishing-report/
