Tiderunners IS NEW... But Old

Tiderunners is located at the famous Fisherman's Wharf in Lewes, Delaware, where the Old Hookers Bait and Tackle was previously located. Operated seasonally, from April thru November,  Tiderunners has a complete selection of everything you would need to fish from the headboats and charter boats located just steps from our doors, the beaches and pier at nearby Cape Henlopen State park, and many other local hotspots.  We constantly update our tackle selections with proven fish catchers and quality fresh and frozen baits.  Our staff is intimately familiar with the local fishing scene - we know fishing and want to help you have great days and memories on the water.
