Although it might be a bit windy today, it’s still been an amazing day at Indian River Marina. Beautiful weather looks to be on the forecast tomorrow so be sure to come on down to the marina and take part in the amazing fishing! Inshore reports Flounder, Croaker and Sea Bass still hold strong as many of them are still getting hooked. Offshore scattered Tuna, both Bigeye and Yellowfin are being caught, Wahoo and Gaffer Mahi also are landed. Marlin releases continue to be up also.
