The first point of call for European settlers in 1631, Lewes is a town steeped in history. With access to the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic’s open waters, it’s also a paradise for anglers. Come fishing in Lewes, DE, and discover the wealth of nearshore fishing in the famous bay or head offshore to battle it out with some real beasts. 
 

Types of Fishing

Situated at the mouth of the Delaware Bay, Lewes is in an ideal location to explore a range of different fishing grounds. Within minutes you can fish the shallow inshore waters or spend up to 12 hours offshore big game fishing. Wherever you go, rest assured that you’ll target some tough-fighting fish with the prize of a delicious treat to take home at the end of the day.

Bay Fishing

From the brackish waters in the north to the open waters of the Atlantic, you can find plenty of prized fish in Delaware Bay. Fill the boat with delicious Seabass, Drum, Flounder, and Trout, or battle it out with huge Sharks. Of course, there’s a healthy helping of the East Coast’s favorite, Rockfish, too, so you’ll never get bored fishing here. 

Coastal Fishing

Fishing the surf is very popular with anglers along the East Coast. Plenty of migrating fish make their way past Lewes and Rehoboth Beach who, along with the year-round Seabass, Bluefish, and Rockfish population, make for a thrilling day of fishing. Cast away and bottom fish the sandy bottoms and you could land a prized Mackerel or delicious Weakfish to take home. 

Deep Sea Fishing

If you’re looking for a pulse-racing adventure, then an offshore fishing trip out of the Cape region is for you. Head to the canyons around 25 miles offshore, where some of the ocean’s biggest fish live. Spend at least 12 hours on the choppy waters, testing your strength to the limit going after monster Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and more. This is big game fishing at its finest, giving you the chance to land a tasty treat or catch a trophy-sized beast that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
 

How to Prepare 

Smaller center consoles will take you along the shallows, meaning you may be more exposed to the elements, so make sure to dress appropriately. When traveling long distances, it’s likely that your boat will feature a cabin, so you can cool off or keep warm as you please! 
 
Fishing charters in Lewes always provide rods, reels, and some form of lures, so you’ll have everything you need for a productive day on the water. Just make sure to grab your fishing license before coming aboard, and stock up with plenty of food and drink to make the most of your day. 
 
The East Coast is a hotbed of fishing activity, so take advantage of it and book your next charter out of Lewes and settle in for an unforgettable experience!

January
With most boats out of the water in January, Lewes is quieter than usual. There’s no point sitting around wondering what to do, visit one of Lewes’ famous museums showcasing the area’s rich history.
February
It’s still not quite time to get out on the water, so why not take a trip along the coastal path and discover some of Lewes’ iconic lighthouses. Find out all about the area’s ties to the maritime industry.
March
Warm-up for the fishing in the bay with a trip to the Overfalls lightship that doubles up as a museum. One of only 7 lightships open to the public, you’ll have the rare chance to explore this beauty.
April
The wait is finally over. Head out aboard a fishing charter from Lewes and finally get your hands on some fish. Explore the bay for the best fishing as the season gets going and land yourself something delicious.
May
With the warmer weather comes plenty more fish. It’s still better to fish the shallows than to head offshore, so come and fill the boat with tasty Tautog, Weakfish, Flounder, Seabass, and more.
June
You won’t know where to look when June hits, with fish coming at you from all angles. Bluefin Tuna make the journey past the coast offshore, while the nearshore fishing is supplemented by the arrival of Amberjacks.
July
Everything is possible as it hits peak season. Explore the bay for a range of delicious fish or battle it out with some trophy-sized beasts in the deep, as Mahi Mahi start to make their way past the coast.
August
White Marlin join the offshore party giving you even more reason to head out to the deep waters in August. Experience the thrill of hooking this world-famous fish and land a few Mahi Mahis as an extra treat.
September
With the kids back in school, Lewes may seem a bit quieter in September, but the fishing is as good as ever. Whether you want an offshore adventure or want to explore the shallows, Lewes is the place to be. 
October
As the season winds to a close, there’s no sign that the fish are letting up. Most of the offshore predators have made their way past, but the bay is still full of Seabass, Flounder, Trout, and many more. 
November
If you’re lucky enough to find a captain to take you out in November, you’ll have the fishing almost exclusively to yourself! Head to the bay and fill the freezer in time for the holiday season. 
December
After the thrill of the season, put your feet up and start preparing for next year’s opportunity to go fishing. Enjoy the holidays and don’t risk going out in the rough weather, with another year just around the corner.

Fishing in the canal is pretty good this time of year. Be patient and have fun. Make sure to have blood worms, squid and power bait.

Try switching between bait and jig for bottom fishing, some days one type of lure works significantly better than the other.

My son and I had a great day of fishing with Captain Mike. We were catching fish all day but "keepers" were tough to come by. The Capt worked non-stop to keep us in the fish. Great day, great boat, great leader... highly recommend. We'll be back for sure.

This was our first experience out on a boat fishing and it was awesome. Captain Mike and his helper were extremely personable and made it a wonderful first experience for my kids. I would recommend getting out on the boat with Captain Mike and we are already looking forward to doing it again in the future.

Captain Mike and his mate handled the trifecta of young, inexperienced anglers, choppy waters and reluctant fish to ensure everyone caught something and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Highly recommend!

Had a great time caught lots of fish as we did a bottom fish instead of a shark fishing expedition because of that’s what my kids wanted to do. Great memories made Captain Michael & mate Brogan was top notch.

We originally went half day, but decided to go full day after talking to the captain. The trip went well, nice weather, mildly choppy waters, and towards the end of the trip we were catching fish every 1-3 min lol. The captain and first mate were incredibly professional and good at their work. I will definitely charter again if I make it to Delaware next year!
