I like Key Box area right outside of Dewey. Not too crowded. Can't help you with setups. I rarely surf fish so I use whatever the guy at the Worms & Perms place suggests that day.

I've fished that area a few times a year over that past several years and have really not done too much and haven't seen much caught either. I normally get several dogfish and rays on cutbait or fishbites farther out, can get tons of small blues on mullet rigs in close and farther out and occasional kings on bloodworm fishbites just behind the breakers.

I try to hit 3Rs as that area seems to have the deepest water. Just try to find the sloughs and fish near where you think the breaks in the bars are. Finger mullet, bloodworm fishbites and cut bunker should get some pullage. I like to hold the rod when using the mullet rigs, the little blues are quick!

Cape Henlopen pier (CHP) is good... but crowded.
