78 - CAPE GAZETTE Friday, September 13 - September 19,1996 NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE Cape Region Fishing Rep0rl Continued from Page 77 eight (8) feet. All persons in interest are hereby notified to be present and to attend the meeting where a determination will be made by said Board. Such meeting may be adjourned from time to time by said Board without further notice. Issued this 19th day of August 1996, pursuant to the rules heretofore adopted by the Board of Adjustment. Board of Adjustment The City of Lewes Harvey Cupp Chairman Very coO00oLI Continued from page 71 Diamond Pond weighing 54.14 pounds. There were 17 fish caught from the Broadkill River weighing 24.06 pound and 54 fish caught from Wagamons weighing 77.89 pounds. "We had a beautiful day," said Pauline Wilson of Wilson's Sunshine Marina. Delaware Bay Fran's influence has produced high seas for local fishermen. But prior to the blow, fishing seemed to be getting back on track, according to R & R Sports Center. R & R reports that better flounder catches were being re- ported further up in the bay around Blakes Channel, Cross Ledge between E Buoy and the Mohawk and between 19 and 14 Foot Light. Anglers in the lower bay con- tinue to pick at flounder in the usual spots such as the Shears, A Buoy and at the Walls and Breakers off Lewes. You might try inside the Outer Wall and number Four Buoy as well. The heaviest action has been on good numbers of decent blues, trout and croaker (hard- heads). Trout seem to be all over outside the Outer Wall and Ice- breakers. Trout, croaker and blues are providing good action in 50 to 60 feet outside of the Breakers. Bluefish up to three pounds can be caught at the Wall. Broadkill Slough is also pro- ducing well with the area off the last house on Broadkill Beach being a good spot for trout. Joe Morris of Lewes Harbour Marina said the croaker are very good and are mixed with blues, trout and sea bass at No.Four Buoy, 50 to 65 feet of water in- side the Outer Wall and at A Buoy in the lower Anchorage area. Try bottom rigs with simple squid baits to pick up the croak- ers, which are a member of the drum family. If you haven't fished with squid before, skin the squid. That should leave nice white squid, which can be cut in- to strips. Let some dangle off the hook to flutter to help attract the fish. The small fish are making a welcome return to the bay. Inland Bays Try fishing for spot, flounder and a variety of other fish, in- cluding smallish trout in the Broadkill River. The old Doxsee Clam Factory, which has since been bought by the State of Delaware, is working well right now. Surf fishing Surf fishing seems to have im- proved with the arrival of the mullet. Anglers have been re- porting bluefish from one to three pounds in the suds from Cape Henlopen down to Fen- wick Island with whole mullet rigs being the favored rigging. Cut bait is also working well at usual fishing spots like Tower Road, Three R's Road, the Point and the area north of Indian Riv- er Inlet. Catches of trout were reported from inside the Cape Henlopen Point, Broadkill, the Navy Jetty and Roosevelt. Nicer fish were being taken at the point with fresh or live mullet and spot. Live spot fishing is a sure indi- cator that the transition from summer to fall is starting for fishermen. Small rockfish or stripers have been hitting in the surf. IR Inlet and near shore From the Bell Buoy on out, there have been catches of trout and croaker with flounder mixed in. Old Inlet Bait and Tackle said that bluefish are hit- ting on the incoming tide on bucktails and spoons. Chris Loeb at Old Inlet said that be- sides small bluefish, striped bass are also being taken at the inlet. Don't bother fishing in the daytime, this is strictly a night time fishery only. Flounder fishing has slowed in the back bays, but the striped bass action should continue until perhaps December if the weather doesn't turn too bad. Lures imi- tating mullet are a good bet for stripers right now in the inlet. Near shore wrecks produced good hauls of seabass, tog and triggers early in the week be- tween the blows. Offshore Regulars reported yellowfin tuna still at the Hot Dog after Edouard, but it remains to be seen if they will stay after Fran. Indications are that the fish will probably stay around and could remain around for several weeks. People often forget that off- shore fishing can be good well into the fall. In fact, the biggest problem is usually finding a calm day to go fishing. White marlin have also been reported offshore. Loeb said the area around 500 fathoms at Poor Man's Canyon may be the best bet to find billfish.
