Bay flounder turning on Flounder fishing in the Delaware Bay seems to be about the best bet in these "dog days" of AugusL Kelly Racz at the R&R Fishing Center at Midway reported Thurs- day that"real good" flounder fish- ing can be foun d at the northeast comer of the Anchorage, near E. buoy. "Forty-seven feet of water seems to be the magic number," said Racz. "If it slows down there, head to the southeast comer at G Buoy in about 50 to 52 feet of water." Racz says the flatties range in size from just legal to up to two pounds. The best time to catch them seems to be the last two hours of the incoming tide. Indian River Bay also is good for flounder, especially the slough on the south side by South Shore Marina. You'll catch a lot of throw-backs before you get your limit, but that makes the fishing a lot of fun. Out a little farther, Racz said tuna fishing is still hot. On a trip last Monday to the Fin- gers, Racz said he caught his limit and was back at the dock by 3 p.m. He hauled in two bluefin weighing 50 and 110 pounds, respectively. Speaking of tuna, the tuna chunking trips being offered at Fisherman's Wharf in Lewes will get under way every Sunday in September, with the first tentative- ly scheduled for September 5. The cost is $200 per person and the trip lasts about 22 hours, call 645-8862 for more specific details. In other fishing news, stripers are still hot at Indian River Inlet and at the outer wall just outside Lewes. Racz said Daryl Reifsnyder weighed in a 21-pounder earlier FISHG this week. There's not much to report as far as surf fishing, other than anglers are hoping that it picks up by the time the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual surf fishing tournament on Saturday and Sunday, October 9 and 10. We'll have more details on that tournament in the coming weeks. Anglers may want to mark Sep- tember 6 on their calendars. That's when the Lewes Harbor Marina will host the annual Cap- tain Stanley Johnson Tournament, which is open to all boats and begins at 7 a.m. Regisation fee is $25 per per- son, and that includes dinner and two drink tickets at the Anglers Restaurant later in the day. Ifs just a fun, catch-and-release tournament where anglers earn points for a variety of fish - a junk fish such as an oyster cracker is worth 15 points. Following dinner, door prizes will be awarded to tournament winners. You can pre-register by calling Joe or Amanda Morris at 645- 6227.
