Fishing Report 6/19/23

Written on: June 19th, 2023 in Fishing Report

Summer is here and fishing has been great at IRM.  The docks have seen some record-breaking fish landed.    Inshore we have seen plenty of Bluefish, Seabass, Flounder, and Spanish Mackerel.  Offshore the Tuna are out there some days good catches and other’s days not so good, hence why it’s called fishing not catching.

The Kids Catch All Tournament is this weekend so please register online at or come by the marina Friday evening from 6-8pm under the pavilion and Saturday morning in the main office from 7-9am.  There is a lot of giveaways for the kids and 2 nights of free fantastic food!!!!

The Charter boats are booking fast for the season so give Carolyn a call at 302-227-3071 and let her get you hooked up with one of our great Captains.

Till next time Tight Lines and Sweet Times!!!!

Fishing Report for 7/7/22

Written on: July 7th, 2022 in Fishing Report

Finally we are back online with our fishing reports!!!  What a summer we have had here at IRM.

The Kids Catch Tournament held on June 25 & 26 was awesome with 151 anglers entered.  They sure did bring a ton of fish back to the docks.  We will be able to post some pics shortly so keep a close eye out.  Last weekend we held the IRM slip-holders Tuna Blast with 20 boats entered and everyone hitting the docks with some nice fish.

Offshore has been picking up this last week with Yellowfin, Bluefin and even a few Big Eye Tunas.  The sharks have been thick so alot of the Tunas are getting eaten before getting to the boats!!  There have been some scattered Mahi landed as well and nice catches of Tilefish have been brought to our docks.

Inshore and in the Inlet we have seen Flounder, Seabass, Trout, Triggerfish, Rockfish kind of a mixed bag out there.

Be sure to give us a call at 302-227-3071 and get hooked up with one of our Charters or Headboats.  Ms. Carolyn will be glad to assist you on booking a trip of your dreams.


Till next time Tight Lines and Great Times ahead!!!!


Fishing Report 2/21/22

Written on: February 21st, 2022 in Fishing Report

Welcome to 2022 Everyone!!!


We sure have missed you all.  The Staff at IRM has been very busy this winter on many projects throughout the Marina and Cottages.  We had a booth at the OC Boat Show over the weekend which brought in record crowds.  We have an extensive waitlist for all size vessels including Charters so if you are interested or thinking about purchasing a boat or changing the size of vessel you currently have please contact the office to get your name on the waitlist.

We have not heard about much action out on the water except for the hundreds of Bluefins that were caught down in North Carolina.  But, that season is closed and now we can get ready for a great 2022 fishing year at IRM.

We have some events coming up for the 2022 season and will be posting all of them soon.  Here is a sneak peek.

7th Annual Kids Catch-All Tournament June 24, 25, and 26.  Visit the website at for more info
