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 www.kidscatchall.com for more info

Well for most of this week all the boats have been tied tight to the docks due to the weather. It looks like we will get a great weekend and hope the fish will cooperate.
Over the last couple weeks we were seeing catches of Yellowfin and Bigeye Tuna hitting the docks. We weighed in a 444 lb Blue Marlin which brought in some excitement. There has been plenty of Mahi landed as well.
Inshore the Flounder have been plentiful and we are still seeing some nice Seabass.
There are plenty of fish to be hooked so please give us a call and we will get you lined up for a great day of fishing. 302-227-3071.
Till next time Tight Lines & Better Times ahead!!!

Happy Spring to Everyone! We sure are ready to do some Fishing!!!
Not a lot of action yet although we have had some Tog and a couple small Rockfish landed. It looks like the water is warming up and the weather will hopefully begin to cooperate.
The 6th Annual Kid’s Catch All will be held on June 25, 26 and 27th. Entry forms can be found online at www.kidscatchall.com . You can also stop by the Marina Office or any of the local tackle shops. This is a great event for the kid’s. After canceling last year due to COVID it seems everyone is ready to get back out on water and bring their catch to the dock to see who will be the big trophy winners!!!
There is a list of all of our events planned for the 2021 season. Of course things subjected to change as we all are use to by now and Covid restrictions and all guidelines will be followed. 🙂
Let’s hope for some better fishing day ahead till next report
Tight Lines & Better Times for ALL!!!!!

Not much is happening at the Marina at this time. We haven’t had any of our vessels hitting the open waters lately. The strong winds, storms and cold temps have kept everyone tied down tight. We are into a lot of winter projects around the Marina and we have gone through many challenges thus far. Please send warm thoughts not only for the good days ahead but for the staff members we have lost due to COVID-19. We will continue to do our best to be available to the public and will continue with strong COVID-19 safe practices and guidelines.
Hope to have some reports coming soon. Let’s all keep fingers crossed for some better weather and some great fishing!!!
You may want to get your trip booked NOW! Last year was an extremely busy year for our Charter’s and we expect to be even busier this season.
Till next time Tight Lines & Safe Times for all!!!
