Happy holidays to everyone!  Our parking lots were busy as many anglers set out over the weekend to take advantage of the break in the weather.  There has been some good tog fishing inshore and some reports of rockfish limits off of the beach.

As a remind to our slip holders, there are only 2 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 and mark your calendars for the 2nd Annual Kids Catch-All Fishing Tournament, June 26th-28th here at the Indian River Marina, and the 7th Annual Seafood and Arts Festival on Saturday July 25th.

State record 17.1-pound sheepshead caught from fishing boat out of Lewes


LEWES (Oct. 8, 2014) – DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife has confirmed a new state record in the Delaware Sport Fishing Tournament: a 17.1-pound sheepshead caught on Sept. 29. The fish was 28 inches long and had a girth of 24 inches.

David Walker of Boothwyn, Pa., who caught the fish in the lower Delaware Bay over a rock pile on a green crab, noted that his record catch was “delicious!” The catch is recognized as a Delaware record since the fish was caught from a boat out of and returning to a Delaware port.

The record catch was initially confirmed by Natural Resources Police Fish & Wildlife Enforcement officer AFC Joshua Hudson, and verified at the Lewes Harbour Marina in Lewes.

The previous record holder was Christopher H. Wentz, who caught a 15.11-pound sheepshead in 2012.
