Delaware sheephead and flounder

The canal is a good spot to launch a kayak for flounder up until about July then the bite pretty much shuts off. Getting way back in the creeks with a kayak can be very productive for stripers. Dink blues and and stripes are plentiful in IR. 


I saw a few sheep’s swimming this year but haven’t targeted them myself. There’s some rocks in Lewes in the DE bay where I hear they can be in decent numbers. 

 

There’s plenty of places to find some fish in de. And if you want the Chesapeake Bay is only an hour and a half to some good speckled trout and striper fishing that is conducive to kayak fishing.

The best catching for both of these species is by boat . The "old grounds" an area around B buoy holds  a lot of Flounder and the artificial reefs hold fish too . There are different techniques for each area . I suggest you get on a charter or headboat to learn some of the techniques then try them on your own boat if you have one . The Sheephead are in a few spots i can't say because they are limited . This site isn't the best for Fiberglass jetty info , your more likely to find better info on FB . Good luck and PM me if you would have any questions .

thanks striper. I have a pedal kayak but dont think I can get far enough out for the artificial reefs. im just going to study maps and try to put my time in on the water. Sucks living 3.5 hours away and loving the salt fishery. makes me not even want to fish the local fresh waters around my house
