April 28th, 2015 by Indian River Marina

John Nedelka of the Karen Sue had a great catch of tog and bluefish over the weekend inshore.  Dave Collins of Capt Ike had a nice catch of tog as well.  Along the beaches bluefish were landed on a consistent basis.  Small rockfish with a few keepers have shown up in the bay.  Down south off of NC there have been nice catches of yellowfin tunas and sharks.  Let’s hope the warmer water and the fish move up soon.

Life at IRM is picking up.  Hammerheads has been open on the weekends since the beginning of April and is seeing good crowds out to enjoy the food and drinks.  Our boat yard crew is busy assisting our customers in launching their boats and moving them to get ready for the start of the season.  For our slip holders, please give the office a call to schedule your launch date and time if you have not done so already.

Tight lines and good times!

Fishing Report for 12/30/2014

December 30th, 2014 by Indian River Marina

For a few hardy souls the Rockfish season is still not over.  For those willing to head out we have a good number of folks returning with some nice catches.


As we approach 2015 we would like thank everyone for another great year.  Our docks and parking lots were quite busy this past season and a lot of fish were caught.  The first annual Kids Catch-All Tournament held on behalf of the Lyme Disease Association of the Eastern Shore of Maryland (which serves Sussex County in Delaware) was a tremendous success with great catches, amazing food, and a lot of fun for all of the anglers.  Last year’s event saw 75 participants take part in the action and there is already a lot of interest for the 2015 Kids Catch All, which will be heald June 26th – 28th.


Although it was cut short by rain, the Seafood and Arts Fesitval saw a record breaking crowd this past year.  The food and art vendors had a spectacular array of products on display and everyone went home happy.  Next year’s event on July 25th will be sure to top this past year’s so be sure to save the date.

We look forward to seeing everyone in 2015!
