It may be past Labor Day, but there is still a lot of action here at Indian River Marina. Hammerheads Dockside has a great crowd this afternoon and the docks are busy.
Offshore dozens of Big Eyes and yellow Fin have been landed in the Wilmington Canyon. Lots of mahi have also been caught in the weed lines.
Closer to the docks we have been seeing lots and lots of flounder.
John Bridgen of Elizabethtown, PA caught these 4lb flounders while fishing with Capt. Eddie Wheedleton of the head boat Judy V. out of Indian River Marina using cut bait. They were drifting out at B-Buoy.
These 5.9lb and 5.7lb were big, but not big enough to win the pool on the morning trip of the Judy V. out of Indian River Marina. Arthur Sirdofsky of Teaneck, NJ caught these using cut bait out at B-Buoy with Capt. Eddie Wheedleton.
