Details: Fishing Hot Spot® Old Flat Top
Free Fishing Hot Spot®
Known as “Old Flat Top,” the rugged base of an abandoned lighthouse remains standing at the south end of Cross Ledge. Several lumps ...more to the east side give up fish. Nice flounder are caught here using simple fishfinder-rigs. On the deeper edges of the channels, 3 ounces of weight or more may be necessary to keep the bait near the bottom. Top and bottom-rigs with minnows and shedder crabs will produce weakfish and flounder. Use dark teasers on overcast days and light colors on bright days. Tautog and black sea bass also frequent the ruins.

Croaker and spot continue to dominate the fishing in the bay. The action is pretty much all over the bay wit boats out of Bowers Beach and Lewes bringing in loads ...more of fish on every trip. Triggerfish have been caught on the reefs as well as at the Inner and Outer walls with sand fleas as good bait. The Ferry Jetty has seen a fair number of big croaker and keeper flounder. Casting a live minnow into the rocks and allowing it to swim free can attract the flounder. Peeler crab or bloodworms will bring in the croaker.
The Cape Henlopen Fishing Pier remains the top spot for shore-bound anglers to access the good fishing in the bay. Croaker and spot dominate the catch with a few trout and flounder taken as well. Bloodworms, Gulp!, Fishbites and minnows have been the best baits.
