The weather and the fishing are finally beginning to cooperate with each other. Last week we had reports and catches of Rockfish and Tog. With the closer of Tog May 11th it seems to be Rockfish on the menu. Offshore there have been reports of Mako’s and unlimited Blue Sharks.
Don Benjamin, of Ocean View, DE. Harry Lewis, Kenny Vincent both of Rehoboth Beach, DE and Doc Peoples of Dagsboro, DE finally got out fishing for Tog before the closer last week and had a great day. They landed 8 keeper fish out of 22 using green crab, shrimp and a clam on a snag near Fenwick Shoal.
We hope to have more pics and reports later this week.

The bridge is coming down… we have all been looking forward to that and slip rentals have taken an upward turn this year.
We offer plenty of Charter Boats and Headboats to fulfill your fishing needs so give us a call and we will get you hooked up with one of our professional and experienced Captains. 302-227-3071

We weathered another storm well. We did have some minimal water line damage again on the docks but staff has jumped on that project quickly. It looks like the Bridge Demolition has finally begun!!! Hopefully with the weather giving us a break we may see some fish moving into the area?? Let’s keep our fingers crossed for great weather, NO wind and FISH.
We will keep you posted as soon as we hear of some good catches. We have plenty of Charter Boat’s gearing up for the new season so give us a call and get a date secured for your fishing trip this year.

We have had reports of stripers being caught in and around the inlet this entire week. We have had more anglers out with the nice weather we have had. The Karen Sue, with Captain John and his mate Pete aboard, had a couple of nice trips this week with the tautog. The weekend looks great, so get out there and give it a try…take a kid fishing! Send us your pics or reports.
Nice catch guys….
Now this takes “smoked fish” to a whole new level.

Happy New Year Everyone!!! Well, it’s been hit or miss right now with the fishing. We have had some reports of small Rockfish in and around the inlet. A couple boats did have their limits off of Ocean City last week.
Sea Bass has opened back up but you need to travel alittle, the 50 fathom line is where they are in the warmer water. Reports say they are nice fish.
We still have a couple charter boats fishing through the winter please contact the Marina Office for more info. 302-227-3071 The weather is looking good for the upcoming week so book with us and get hooked up.
If you want to head way South there has been a Blue Fin bite outside the Ruddy Inlet in Va.
Please send your pics to Jill.Defelice@state.de.us and we will do our best to get you posted.
TIGHT LINES AND GOOD TIMES!!!!! ARE COMING!!!!

The Rockfish and Tog still keep gracing the creels of local anglers, much to the delight of all. The weather has been cooperating with warm conditions and for the most part dry.
Off the beach, anglers are continuing to catch Tautog (Tog) on the offshore structure, some being braging size. The other news is the nice Rockfish catches being caught off the beach and in the Delaware Bay.
In the Inlet, anglers are catching Rockfish from both boats and from the shore. Many of the Linsiders are taking spot baits, while many are being caught on artificials such as bucktails. The areas along the Rip Rap on both the Northside and the Southside are good bets, but the Bubblegum beach area has turned on as of late for the shore based anglers. While boat anglers have been having luck drifiting the areas around the Coast Guard Station and the old sand bar area on the south side. Some boat anglers have been following the working birds throughout the inlet.
Here is a few photo’s of fish from the Inlet caught by Ronnie Payne today. Ronnie kept these nice Rockfish for the table, then caught and released many more, Great Job Ronnie!
As for Tautog (Tog), anglers fishing along the Rip Rap have been catching these tasty fish on crab and some anglers have used sandfleas.
Also I’ve seen some shad still being caught from time to time.
So as you read, there is still some winter fishing to be done here at Indian River Inlet and with luck it will continue throughout the winter as a couple of years ago. Almost all of the Charter Boats are out for the season with the exception of Capt Aaron Hurd on the “Gale Force” and Capt John Nedelka on the “Karen Sue”. I’m not sure how much longer the “Gale Force” will be running, but the “Karen Sue” will be running throughout the winter fishing season. Their information can be found at the web link posted below.
This will be my last posting on the blog as I’m moving on to the retired life and practicing what I preach here, Fishing. The reports will be continuing though and here’s wishing you, Good Luck and Tight Lines.
