Well after making out of that Nor’easter things are shaping up for some nice weather and good fishing. Inshore reports some Rockfish being landed along the beach and in the Inlet. Offshore reports a few boats ventured out this week landing some nice size Yellowfins ranging 70-80lbs and a few Big Eyes, Swordfish, Mako’s and plenty of Mahi on the balls. The weekend might blow alittle, hopefully someone will get out there and we will have some pics and new reports.

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!!!!!
