Well, if you didn’t get out today, looks like you won’t be fishing for a few days.  I did hear reports of boats on their way back in with Trigger fish and Mahi.  There are a bunch of events happening around town today, so if you were out on the boat today, you were the lucky ones.

Have a great rest of your weekend!

There is still not much to report.   Not many out fishing lately.  Now they are forecasting more wind for the weekend.  Please stop down and hang out at Hammerheads Dockside before they close up at the end of this month.

Here is a pic of a nice tuna caught back in July:

There is not much to report due to Maria hanging around off the coast.  The seas should be lying down in the next day or two so we should get back to some good fishing shortly.  In the meantime, stop on down to the marina and check out some of the great deals in our ship store.  Also, swing by Hammerheads Dockside and grab some lunch or dinner, then hit Hookem & Cookem for all of your bait and tackle needs.

Til next time, tight lines and good times!

Wow…this is a beautiful day today, Saturday, September 9, 2017.  Say a prayer for those folks down in Florida getting ready to be hit by Irma.  Hope everyone can get out of harms way.

Up here, the weather is much better.  There is a good breeze going today, but it is not keeping the real fishermen from heading out and landing a fish.  Check out these reports from this week.

Jim Bunting of Georgetown, DE, Capt. Frank Perna of Alexandria, VA and Tony Balestrieri, fished on the Indian Giver out at the Baltimore and the Poor Man’s and had a pretty good day. They trolled ballyhoo and caught mahi and then deep dropped to catch some nice blue line tile.

This 6.7lb black drum was caught by Susan Krepshaw of Wilm., DE, using live sand fleas while on the south side of the Indian River Inlet.

Capt. Roger Meekins took a half day trip on the Capt. Bob II and had a great day of flounder fishing. The boat had 28 keeper flounder with many limits being taken home.  Chris, John, Rowan and Karie Pickell, from Lancaster, PA, Darrell Doupnik of Dagsboro, DE and Tom Carlson of Baltimore, MD. They were fishing out at O-Buoy using cut bait, shiners and Gulp baits.
