Fisherman's Wharf Fishing Report Fisherman's Wharf Fishing Report October 23rd, 2014 For the third time in just as many weeks we are once again experiencing high winds and rough seas with waves at the Delaware Lightship reporting station in the eight to ten foot category and winds in excess of thirty miles per hour. Even though the Sea Bass season is now open, there were a few weeks where we were unable to target these tasty fish due to regulations, and with water temperatures still much warmer than normal the Tautog fishing in my book left a lot to be desired when that season first opened.
