I don't mind the distance if the fishing spot is an awesome place and I can eat my catches. With that in mind, is Bower beach the best fishing place in DE?

Don't know about the BEST place. Indian River is what I'm familiar with, fishing off the jettys (very slippery rocks), or party boats leave from the Inlet area.

Bowers Beach is good, too.....from the rocks, or along the water, but watch the signs for private property. Fishing party boats leave from their docks 4:30 a.m., or so. Or, do what I do these days. Buy fresh fish from Frenchie's Dock, right on the water. Frenchie fishes every day, cleans, fillets/prepares to order, and wraps in ice. He's the mayor, too! Or, at least he was.

hard to say if bowers is the best fishing place....its just another inlet that services lower delaware bay.

bluefish and rockfish while awesome eating live in the estuary all their young life and contaminants have more time to work thier effects. Flounder , croaker, sea trout are fairly safe to eat, I guess.....

have to keep in mind tho one of the biggest ocean going fish the tuna has high levels of mercury as well.

If ya want to fish off a head boat for croaker flounder (and almost non -exsistant) sea trout bowers and lewes is your best bet. Del bay used to be the sea trout capitol of the east coast....sadly they are really hurting and cant be caught like they used to.

Just remember small bluefish have high levels of contaminantes....great eating that you dont really want to eat.


ANyone heard of this brominated fire retardant thats on everything we own...been on the news lately.......its been found in fish and get this polor bears......its sad what we have done to this earth.

Bout a year ago they were going to dump mustard gas derivitive into delaware bay, not sure if it happened but speaks to what has been done in the past.

Yep, cancan, it IS sad what we humans have done to the waters of our planet! I grew up in Va Beach, and way back when I was a kid/teenager (60's & 70's), the Chesapeake Bay was not in the greatest shape evey then. Fast forward 30+ years, and the problems with various varieties of seafood is no surprise to me.

And you got it, I don't eat much seafood AT ALL... maybe a can of tuna once in a while!
