That tip comes from Joe Morris of Lewes Har- bour Marina, but there are plenty of good spots these days. Morris suggests fishing in the evenings around Roosevelt Inlet for trout or working the Coral Beds for drum using clams as bait. Drake Nichols and Mike New- sham reported catching and re- leasing 60 trout on salt and pepper vibra fin artificials from the outer wall. G Buoy (in the Anchorage) is another productive spot which is giving up some flounder for fishermen drifting baits. Drifting in the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal has been producing flounders for Steve Millman and Mark Demo. Morris reported a 75-pound black drum caught by Bob Willey.
