It’s not too late to get the kids signed up for the 3rd Annual Kids Catch-All Tournament this weekend at Indian River Marina. Stop by the marina on Friday between 6-8pm and Saturday between 6-8am to register. Lots of prizes and awards will be given out over the two day event. We will have IRM shirts and hoodies available for sale during the event and all other times at our Ship Store located by our Drystack building.
As for the fishing, it has been hot. Check out some of these pics from the past week:
THE FIRST WHITE MARLIN HAS BEEN CAUGHT at 10:03 AM. Ian Schwing on the “Fish Whistle” out of the Indian River Marina just caught and released the first white marlin of the season. It was hooked at the 950 line in the Poor Man’s Canyon. 400 fathoms in 67-degree water. The “Fish Whistle” is a member of the Marlin Club.
Scott Rynard of Carlisle, PA caught his first flounder of the season fishing in the Indian River Bay around buoy 14 using a bucktail tipped with squid and minnow. This fish weighed 4.3lbs and measured 22 inches long.
Capt. John Nedelka, of the Karen Sue, put Skit Mosiej of Rehoboth, DE on the big fish at the Del-Jersey Reef and brought back a 4.1lb black sea bass. He caught this fish using squid.
