Strike Zone Sportfishing is located in beautiful Lewes, Delaware, right on the canal behind the Lewes Harbour Marina bait shop and down the dock from Irish Eyes Bar and Grill. Captain Chris strives to make sure you have a fun, exciting time out on the open water with him, whether you are going far offshore or going for an inshore tour.

Strike Zone is a 29’ Sportfishing boat with a large cockpit to fight fish, a roomy cabin with 3 bed bunks, a full bathroom with a flushable head, and a kitchen with a refrigerator. The boat is outfitted with top of the line electronics for your safety and finding the fish of your dreams.

The captain invested in brand new offshore safety equipment that exceeds Coast Guard standards. He has also added to his arsenal of setups a spread of brand new offshore trolling rods and reels to make sure you get your catch of a lifetime.

You can go after Flounder and Bluefish in shallow water, go a bit further for different types of Sharks and Mackerel, or visit deep spots for bullet-fast Tuna. The captain will adjust the trip to your skill level and needs and show you the ropes if you’re a beginner.

There’s a cleaning station at the dock, so you can have your catch cleaned for a small fee after the trip. Your fishing equipment is included in the price, and there’s also a variety of lures and live bait. You only need to bring food, drinks, and sun protection.

Strike Zone Sportfishing is very excited to take you and your family or friends out on a trip to remember for years to come! Join and have a blast!

My family has been fishing the area since the 1960s. I grew up fishing since I was old enough to hold a fishing rod in the Indian River and Delaware bays. As I got older, I operated the family fishing boat from age 12 till I bought my own boat at age 20. In the spring of 2019, I decided to move to Delaware and start my dream job being a captain of a Sportfishing boat.
