Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Our parking lots were full this weekend as anglers were taking advantage of all the Seabass Inshore. There are scattered reports of scattered Bluefish and we are still waiting for all the Rockfish to come south from New Jersey as the water gets colder.
As a remind to our slip holders, there are only 3 weeks left to get your vessels out of the water for winter land storage.
This winter please be sure to stop by and visit us at the Ocean City Boat Show February 12-14 and mark your calendars for the 2nd Annual Kids Catch-All Fishing Tournament, June 24th-26th here at the Indian River Marina, and the 8th Annual Seafood and Arts Festival on Saturday July 23rd.
Til next time Tight Lines and Good Times!

Go Away Joaquin……. The Nor’Easter is far worse at this point!!!!
Before all this mess, Tuesday and Wednesday turned out to be some great Offshore fishing. A few boats ventured out into the large swell only to come back to the docks with limits of 70-80lb Yellowfins, Big Eyes and limits of Gaffer Mahi. The Tuna fishing was red HOT….. Not sure what will happen after the blow but let’s keep our fingers crossed for some calmer waters and good fishing.
So far so good here at IRM…. expecting some very high tides and winds for the next couple days…. stay posted
Till next time Tight Lines & Good Times!!!!!
