Passing storms have made it difficult to reach offshore fishing spots. Before the nasty weather, anglers were reporting decent flounder and sea bass action at the Old Grounds. Anglers were also catching sea bass at the Del-Jersey-Land Reef, however, sea bass season closes Sept. 21.
Bob Murphy fished Site 11 before the seas got rough and brought back a 6-pound flounder to the Lewes Harbour Marina. He caught the flatty on a squid. Bill Swords, Jeff Klopp, Mike and Mason Newsham fished the Baltimore Canyon and caught their limit of golden tilefish. The largest weighed 29 pounds. Captain Bruce Buchalter, Neal Dangello, and Daryl Young also ventured to the Baltimore Canyon and returned with a 76-pound wahoo that they caught while trolling. Snapper blues have been caught in numbers at the Indian River Inlet on the incoming tide. Small spoons and lures work well on snappers. Action in the surf has been slow with most of the action coming from small bluefish.
