Fishing Report - Delaware Bay / Atlantic Ocean

We've been waiting for croakers to show, and finally, there were some decent catches today. Captain Ted on the Indian had 65 keepers at the Star Site on his morning trip. The hardheads bit on clams, bloodworms and Fishbites. Hopefully, these are the first of many croakers to come. Flounder catches have been spotty, but some nice fish were checked in. The biggest so far was a 10.7 pound doormat decked today by Edwin Maxwell. The big fluke was caught at Brown Shoal aboard the Thelma Dale IV with Captain Ricky Yakimowicz. The fish ate a teaser tipped with bluefish, ahead of a 3 ounce bucktail. Eric Burnley stopped by monday with three nice keeper flounder up to 5.3 pounds. he said he tried several spots for his fish, including reef sites 6 and 7, and G Buoy. Fluke were found in the Cape May Channel during the week, but were also reported way up the Bay. It has been a dry summer so far, and it stands to reason that fish would move farther north because of increased salinity. Anglers told of good flounder catches from the Cross Ledge on up. Leon and Riley Zimmerman, along with Bob Clouser had an unusual encounter while flounder fishing near G Buoy in the Anchorage. They spotted a hammerhead shark and tossed it a live spot, which the 6 footer ate immediately. After a fun battle and some photos, the big shark was set free. Rocky structure at the Bay mouth has harbored tog, triggerfish and sheepshead. Mike Vespa, Sr. and Mike Vespa, Jr. teamed up for some chunky sheepshead weighing 6.6 and 6.8 pounds while toggled into the Ice Breakers. Mike, Sr. also boated a 7.5 pound tautog. Herbie Shorthose celebrated his birthday on July 14 by catching a 7.32 pound citation tog at the Ice Breakers. Boats trolling the Five Fathom Bank area had a summertime variety. Guys on the Skipjack pulled small spoons at the Cod Lump, 4 FB Buoy and South Shoal Saturday for 60 snapper blues, some bullet mackerel and peanut dolphin. Spot made an appearance in the Lewes Canal, with the tasty panfish, and sought after baitfish preferring bits of bloodworm or Fishbites on sabiki rigs. Captain Dave Walker reported yellowfin tuna and white marlin in the Baltimore Canyon. The tuna bite had been way up the line, between the Spencer and Lindenkohl Canyons, so it was good to hear that the yellowfins moved closer.
