Fall Surf Fishing Tournament Season is here.
The 17th Annual Delaware Seashore Fall Surf Fishing Classic will take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 20-21.
Tournament packet pick up/late registration will be on Friday from Noon til 8pm and Saturday from 5:30am til 7am.
For those not fishing the tournament - Keybox Road and the south end of Fenwick are not in the tournament area.
The surf is offering a mixed bag of blues (up to 16 inches) spot, kingfish and croaker. There is the occasional red drum, striper and flounder out there as well.
We anticipate having fresh mullet and bunker available as well as live bloodworms and surf clams.
Mullet availability has been sporadic. It has not been a great mullet run so far.
The report from the Inlet is a blues, small flounder and croakers during the day. The striper bite is at night. the run has not started yet. Water is still really warm.
The best flounder fishing is on the Old Grounds southeast of B Buoy (8 miles 90 degree out of the Inlet. Look for 80 feet of water or the fleet of boats.
Tautog season is now CLOSED in Delaware waters and will reopen on September 29.
