It has been a long couple weeks down here at the marina. After a hefty nor’easter and a light brush with Hurricane Florence, we are just starting to see our fishermen’s faces down on the docks again. Luckily we made it through the storms with no notable storm damage, but our thoughts are with those in North Carolina.
Due to the weather, there has been little to no interest in fishing for the past couple weeks, but current offshore sources say the waters are loaded with mahi, with a few white marlin and wahoo hitting the docks as well. Spot, croaker, flounder, and blues are getting hooked from Cape Henlopen on down to the Inlet, with the CHSP fishing pier being the only consistent location.
Weather is looking beautiful for tomorrow, so come on down to IRM and spend the final day of the (official) summer on a boat! Call Carolyn at 302-227-3071 for more information and for reservations.
Until next time, tight lines and good times!

The Labor Day bustle is out the door down here at IRM. While we haven’t had many people around, those that do come in are bringing back some great hauls. Looks like flounder fishing is really stepping up with a couple monsters hitting the decks this week.
DON’T FORGET – Come down for our Fisherman’s Flea Market this Saturday from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm to buy gently-used, professional fishing equipment and whatever else our slipholders are selling!
Posing with Toby Miller’s fish is Capt. Don Gillis, both of Dover, DE. This fish was caught out by Toby while at Site 11. This 9.5lb and 28 inch flounder using a Spro bucktail with a 6″ Gulp grub and squid strip.
Brugh Moore of Rehoboth Beach, DE caught his first flounder on Tuesday and boy what a whopper it was. This 9lb and 28 inch flounder was the largest flounder we have seen come in from the Indian River Inlet this summer. It was caught using a chunk of mullet on a circle hook while fishing in front of the Coast Guard Station. He will be spoiled forever now!
Fishing out at the Rock Pile was very productive for the crew of the Even Keeleigh. They were deep dropping squid and cut bait to bring back this batch of large black sea bass and some very nice blue line tile fish.
Pictured are Capt. Mike Babcock, Tom Schanno, Brandon Arnett and Ian Fifer.
Cousins, Alexis and Jeb Zolper, both from Rehoboth Beach, DE fished out at the Lightship with chunks of mullet to bring in this catch of mahi. The largest fish weighed 3lbs and was caught by Alexis.
Enjoy the waning summer offshore on one of our charter boats! Call Carolyn at 302-227-3071 to squeeze in that fishing trip before the cold winds take over.
Until next time, tight lines & good times!

We made it, folks – Labor Day is officially here! And what a gorgeous day for fishing to top it off.
Fish have been hitting the docks despite the intermittent storms all weekend. Inlet fishing has been poor, but fishermen are reporting that there is plenty to catch out in deeper water at the Del-Jersey-Land Reef and the 30-Mile Wreck.
Now that the summer crowds are clearing up, it’s a great time to head out on the water on one of our charters! Call Carolyn at 302-227-3071 to get hooked up with an offshore trip.
Have a wonderful Labor Day, and until next time, tight lines & good times!
