Caution! Dredging in process at Indian River Marina. During the hours of 7am-3pm, there is an dredge crew working close to the entrance to the marina. Please be aware of temporary closing.
As for the fishing, several boats went out yesterday and landed some yellowfins. Hopefully the hurricane out in the Atlantic will push the fish in closer to shore. We’ll see what happens here in the next day or two.
Til next time, Tight Lines and Good Times!

Still blowing pretty good. Very few boats heading out. With the pending storm Matthew, the conditions will probably not get much better. We will have more on the fishing when we get it.
IRM dredging – the equipment is all in place, but we are securing it in the event this storm comes our way. If you are using the ramp at Indian River Marina, use caution around the dredge equipment and be sure to pass between the two white buoys that mark the dredge pipe.

Important Dredging Information for Indian River Marina
On Tuesday, September 27, 2016, from 8am-12pm, the dredge crew will be installing the pipe that will cross from Burton’s Island to the fairway between A and B docks. Since the pipe will be floating during this process, access to the ocean/bay will be closed for B, C, D and E docks. Also, Drystack customers will not have ocean/bay access as well. The boat ramp will also be closed during this time period. Once the pipe is connected, it will be sank to the bottom and boat traffic can resume as normal, with intermittent closings which are expected during the dredging process. A vessel from the dredge crew will be positioned by the pipe crossing during dredging to offer assistance to boaters transiting the area.
Thank you again for your patience during the dredging. Please use extra caution during the dredging as there will be equipment and dredge personnel in the marina during this process.

With the winds blowing pretty good today and also forecasted for Friday, the fishing offshore may be out of the question for most. We did see some good catches hit the docks the past few days. Check out the pics below.
*** Important – the dredging in the marina will begin this week. Please use caution when entering and exiting the marina. The dredge pipe will be marked with buoys and the fairway between A & B dock will be closed. There will be no docking for Hammerheads for the remainder of the season.

The pics below show that the fishing is great once again. Both inshore and offshore are producing again after the storm. The White Marlin bite is crazy right now. Check out these pics from some fish that hit the docks at Hookem & Cookem.

The fishing is back on!!!! Boats are running off shore and catching some nice fish. We are hearing of numerous White Marlin releases and folks bring in Mahi (See pic below).
Also, don’t forget to stop in at our Fisherman’s Flea Market today from 9am to 2pm.
The first offshore boat to go out after storm Hermine was the Capt Ike II. They gave it a go and were not disappointed with a nice catch of mahi. Frank Orsini of Hockessin, DE, caught a 23.5lber Dominic Paloni of Lancaster, PA, caught a 26.3lber and Nick Kincaid of Bear, DE caught a 28.8lber. They also managed to get 110lbs more of peanut sized mahi and 2 white marlin releases.
