Summer Flounder start moving into the shallows of the Delaware Bay in the spring. Flounder gather close to the beaches early in the season and move to the deeper water as the season progresses. Flounder are available all summer a short boat ride from Lewes Delaware.  Summer flounder are great table fare and a perfect family activity for all ages.

Tautog (tog) is many of our customer’s favorite species to target. We will put your charter on productive tog habitat where these tricky and finicky creatures live.  Tautog is one of the most difficult fish to catch and trying to master them is a great challenge.

Black Sea Bass is the ticket if you are looking for a lot of action and an even better dinner.  Many other hard fighting tasty bottom dwellers mix in with the sea bass while bottom fishing. Many wrecks and artificial reefs are in close range from Lewes Delaware making bottom fishing a family favorite. Sea bass is a great type of fishing for women and young children.

Striped Bass (Rockfish) is a true sport fish.  Rock fishing has been very good in recent years with many fish over 30 pounds during the fall of 2011.  View photographs of my 2011 customers in the Gallery.

Shark fishing out of Lewes Delaware aboard the Lil Angler II is not for the faint of heart. Although a lot of patience is required, the wait is worth the excitement and the battle. You haven’t seen anything until you see a mouth full of teeth at the side of the boat.  We can target appropriate species/size sharks to match your party’s’ skill level.  Lewes Delaware sits half way between Ocean City Maryland and Cape May New Jersey.  Both Ocean City and Cape May host numerous shark tournaments during the summer so ask about joining the tournament team.

Atlantic Croaker are a member of the drum family that arrive in July and can provide fast non-stop action that is perfect for a first fishing trip for new anglers of any age.
