Fishing Report for 8/24/18

Written on: August 25th, 2018 in Fishing Report

While a bit too gusty to head out very far this week, the weather was beautiful in our corner of the eastern shore. Despite the wind, fish were still hitting the docks, with tuna looking like it’s going to pick back up in the next couple weeks.


Good luck to any and all of our local Indian River boats fishing the MidAtlantic tournament this week. Show those boys across the bay a reel good time!


These golden tile fish were caught by Robby Marin and Adam Bauer of Edgemere, MD while fishing on the “Dark Star”  They caught these 45.6lb and 38lb golden tile fish while deep dropping at the Poor Man’s Canyon on the 100 fathom line using whole squid.


Kevin Elden of Baltimore, MD on the Reel Ledo.  29.2 lbs. Caught on a naked ballyhoo at the Baltimore Canyon.


Kyle Neibich of Boonsboro, MD, caught this 3.7lb and 22 inch flounder while fishing on the north jetty of the Indian River Inlet using minnow on a top and bottom rig.


These photos are all from the Capt. Bob II outing on Wednesday 8/22. Capt. Bob II and Judy V are the only two headboats at IRM, and both are operated by the wonderful folks at Hook ’em & Cook ’em.

There’s still a little bit of time left to squeeze in that fishing trip before the summer fun comes to an end. Cool off next week by heading offshore on one of our charter boats. Just call Carolyn at 302-227-3071!


Until next time, tight lines and good times!

The White Marlin ended last Friday with two of our slipholders, Fin-Nominal winning first place in the dolphin division with a 50 pounder and Canyon Hunter coming in third place with a 55 lb wahoo. Great job guys for representing IRM! Congratulations!


Inshore reports of flounder, cobia, croaker, and blue fish being landed. While offshore reports have been slow, we have still seen scattered tuna, dolphin, and marlin.






John Burbage III of Ocean View, DE caught this 79.4lb and 48 1/2 inch long cobia while fishing 2 miles off the cost of Bethany Beach, DE on Friday.  John said that he snagged some live bunker then cast into the school of bunker and retrieved the line in quickly to catch this monster of a fish.







While fishing just outside the Indian River Inlet on the “Sunset”, brothers David and Christian Ostrowski of Chadds Ford, PA caught this 19lb cobia using live bunker that they had snagged in the inlet earlier in the day.







While fishing in the Indian River Bay by Burton’s Island, Burt Campbell of Dagsboro, DE hooked into these two nice sized flounder using 3/4oz Mitchell’s bucktails with 5″ white Gulp swimming mullet.  These fish weighed 3.8lbs and 5lbs and measured 23 1/2 inches.







Eric Van Dyke, Nick Van Dyke and Roger Clappe all from Wilmington, DE fishing on the Risk Reward out at Massey’s Canyon chunking with butterfish and sardines and brought back their 3 blue fin tuna with the largest weighing 47 and 48lbs.
