LIL’ ANGLER II first to beat the Drum in Lewes Delaware

By Seamus on 3/24/2013 12:50:40 AM • Rank (701) • Views 701



LIL’ ANGLER II departed the slip in Lewes Delaware around 5pm last night for a 6 hour Black Drum Charter, with 4 hearty fishermen onboard.  Wind was stiff from the East all night, not bad on the flood, but a little choppy on the ebb.  Capt. Brian anchored up in 13 feet of water on the North side of the coral beds located just off of Slaughter Beach Delaware.  First fish came right at the end of daylight at the beginning of the ebb.  Next three fish were caught in quick secession about 8:30 - 9:05 pm.  Bait was fresh surf clams from Joe at Lewes Harbour Marine, with a fish finder rig using an 8/0 Gamakatsu circle hook and 10 ounces of lead.  Headed home around 11pm with 4 happy customers and a very happy crew.

"Jolly Bob" Fern from Dagsboro DE, also "Jolly Bob Lures".  He landed his first and second ever black drum.  First fish came in at 29 inches and 16 pounds, and second fish was 21 pounds and 31 1/2 inches.
