Fishing Report 9-2-17

Nothing to report except for lots of RAIN!!!   Everyone must be at the Outlets…because they are not out fishing.  College football is about the only thing happening today…which you can come down to Hammerheads Dockside and watch on one of their many TVs.  If you feel like staying home, stop on down to Hookem & Cookem for some fresh seafood to take home and steam up or broil.  Hopefully nicer weather on Sunday allows the ocean to flatten out for a great day of fishing on Monday…Monday is looking like the nicest day of this weekend.

Til next time, tight lines and good times!!!

Not much to report.  Small blues in the inlet accompanied by LOTS OF WIND AND RAIN.   The holiday weekend doesn’t look the greatest, but maybe the seas will calm down enough for folks to get out Sun afternoon or Monday.

Til next time, tight lines and good times.

Fishing Report 8-31-17

With the windy and rainy weather the last few days, we have not had any reports of any catches.  The ocean looked flat this morning, so we expect folks to get out there and land some fish.

Indian River Marina is having a Fisherman’s Flea Market on Saturday, September 9, 2017, at 9am.  Slipholders at IRM will have fishing items for sale.  The general public is welcome to come and shop for these items.   Only IRM slipholders are permit to have items for sale.

Since we have not had any reports for fish landed, here are a few pic from this summer:

This 4.6lb flounder was caught by Al Fish, from Oil City, PA (yes that’s right) while fishing on the Gale Force Charters with Capt. Aarron Hurd.  They fished in the Indian River Inlet with top and bottom rigs with minnow.

This 126lb blue fin was caught by Frank Perna of Alexandria, VA while trolling ballyhoo on a spreader bar at the Hot Dog. Jim Bunting of Georgetown, DE and Tom Schamno of Baltimore, MD fished with Frank on the Indian Giver.

The forecast does not look good for inshore or offshore fishing the next several days with wind and rain forecasted.  Sooooo, drifting for flounder in the bay in the answer.  Here are some recent pics of flounder catches:

Hang on to your hats.  The wind has kicked up and looks to blow for awhile.  The storms in Texas and Florida right now are keeping many of us glued to the weather stations.  Folks heading out today are reporting good flounder catches, but only a few keepers in the mix.  One fisherman out of Indian River Marina caught a potential state record tile fish.  See pic and info below:

Tom Schanno of Halethorpe, MD caught this amazing Golden Tile fish while fishing at the Baltimore Canyon in 500 feet of water using a butterfly jig.  This beautiful fish weighed 46.5lbs, measured 47 inches in length and had a 29 inch girth. Tom was fishing with Capt. Tom Perna of Alexandria, VA, on the Indian Giver out of Indian River Marina.  It is pending DNREC’s certification, but looks like it will be the new state record for Delaware.

 

The Ocean Drifter crew, Christian, Carmen and John Ostrowski of Chadds Ford, PA had a great day of fishing out a Massey’s Canyon. They reported chunking with butterfish was slow that day but it turned out to be a good day for them with a 50.4lb and two at 45lbs.

We are on the final day of the 2017 Flounder Pounder Tournament out of Paradise Grill and most of the anglers are out fishing today.  Final weigh-ins are at 6pm tonight, so good luck to everyone fishing today!

We are still seeing a variety of fish caught…and a big flounder every so often!

Rain and Wind is back…but not for long.  The weekend forecast looks much better than Friday.  Not many boats fished the Flounder Ponder today, so that leaves two big days of fishing.  Good luck to all anglers participating.  Lets hope all three hundred boats don’t end up at Site 11 all at once!

Buddy Dykes of Baltimore, MD caught this 4lb and 22 inch flounder while fishing in the Indian River Inlet using white Gulp on a jig.

The skies are clearing and the boats are out there fishing.  We have full lot at the ramp today, so folks are out fishing.  The forecast looks good for some flounder fishing this weekend.  With over $100,000 in prizes, the Flounder Pounder tournament should have a great turnout with hundreds of boats participating.

Here are some pics and reports from some recent catches:

George Kovalich of Millville, DE, holds this 4lb king mackerel that his wife Christine Conover caught while they were on the afternoon trip on the Judy V. with Capt. Chris Adams. Christine worked so hard to catch the fish she had to take a break over at the bar at Hammerheads.

Father, son team Erik Llufrio of Fredericksburg, VA and Paul Llufrio of Middle River, MD caught these keeper fish while on the head boat Judy V.  with Capt. Chris Adams. They were fishing around on the Old Grounds and hooked up with this 2lb flounder and 13 inch black sea bass while using squid.

The full day trip on the Capt. Bob II was a good day finally for flounder fishing. Tony Kuypers of Denville, NJ and Connie and Sam Groff of Peach Bottom, PA caught flounder weighing up to 3.5lbs at the Old Grounds.  Some were using pink fluke killers and some were using cut bait.

Justin and Jacob McGuire of Middletown, DE fished out at Massey’s on the Makin’ Time and caught this 8.8lb mahi and 47lb yellow fin tuna. They were trolling with ballyhoo.

Flounder Flounder Flounder!!!!!  That’s the hot fish right now.  Site 11 was the hot spot yesterday.  The marina parking lots are filling up with trailers almost every day.   Lots of folks out there landing some nice flounder.  With the World’s largest flounder tournament coming up next weekend, everyone is out there finding their lucky spot.

As for the White Marlin Open, Indian River Marina has several boats on the leader board.  Good luck to all of the vessels fishing today…the last day to fish in the tournament.  We hope everyone has a great day and safe travel back to port.

Here are some reports of recent flounder landings:

Jimmy Dove from Lincoln, DE, caught these 2 keeper flounder while fishing on the north side of the Indian River Inlet. He was using Gulp 6″ pink shine grub bait on a jig head when he hooked up with a 3lb and 20 inch and a 3.2lb 21 inch fish.
