Well the weather sure has not been cooperating with us much this fall. We had a few boats venture out yesterday with not much to report except a few Seabass. We will post more if we hear from any of the Captains that fished Offshore.
The marina has many large dock projects including some maintenance dredging and we are asking if you are not using your vessel please schedule your haul out immediately. We need the boats out of the water as soon as possible this year so all construction can start on time. We have been sending reminders of this construction since August and your cooperation is much needed.
Have a great Harvest season and till next time Tight Lines & Good Times.

The weather is really holding out for us this fall and fishing has been pretty good as well.
Offshore reports of limits of Mahi Mahi, plenty of Albacore Tuna, a Yellowfin here and there and quite a few White Marlin Releases. We have seen a lot of fish hitting the docks this past week.
Inshore reports of croaker, scattered Rockfish, Flounder and Bluefish.
There is a lot of fun left on the water this year so give us a call and book a fall trip with one of our Charters at 302-227-3071.
Till next time Good Times and keepin Tight Lines!!!

Happy Saturday, folks! It’s that beautiful time of year that only the locals know about, and there’s plenty of fish biting for everyone!
The mahi bite is on, as well as some scattered tuna. Some scattered white marlin releases as well as some mako sightings.
Inshore anglers landing croakers, rockfish, and a few flounder.
Hope everyone had a good summer season! Only a couple days left before it’s officially fall.
As always, wishing everyone tight lines and good times!

It’s been a pretty slow week for fishing, thanks to the windy weather.
Here’s some pictures from this week in fishing:
Nice catches, everyone! Hopefully soon we will have more to report. I just saw a decent size tuna and swordfish hanging over at Hook ’em & Cook ’em, so we’ll have more to report on those later. These photos courtesy of Hook ’em & Cook ’em.
Thanks also to everyone who came out for our 1st Annual Autumn Art Festival! We had beautiful weather and a pretty good crowd that rolled through all day. Here’s a little wrap-up from that:
Signing off, and as always, wishing everyone tight lines and good times!

Wow, what a beautiful weekend! Minus the high winds and high tides on Friday, the rest of the weekend was absolutely perfect.
Offshore reports of nice amounts of mahi and some scattered yellowtail.
There were a lot of tuna spotted, but they just weren’t biting.
Inshore reports nice flounder hitting the docks.
Here’s some pictures from the past week of fishing:

Happy Labor Day Weekend!!!
It looks as though the weather is going to settle down and our boats will leave the docks this weekend.
Before the blow we had some great fishing reports and fish hitting the docks like Flounders, Tunas, Tilefish, Mahi and many Marlin Releases. With the weather being just right let just hope the fish will bite for all the boats headed out over the weekend. We will keep you posted as soon as we receive some reports.
Upcoming events Saturday Sept. 7th 9am-2pm The Fisherman’s Flea Market in the parking lot in front of Tackle Shop in Marina. This may not be a huge event but this I can say, the equipment and gear your fellow slip holder’s put out is plentiful and sometimes quite unique.
The 1st Annual Autunm Art Festival is Saturday Sept. 14th 10am-5pm. We will have all sorts of fun from over 60 art vendors, food, pumpkin painting, pinata’s, face painting, music, craft beer and wine tasting under the new pavilion and much more…so bring the entire family down for the event.
Hope to see you at all of our events in September. Till then Tight Lines and Great Times!!!!

What a week of thunderstorms! Hope nobody got caught in that pop-up tempest that hit the Sussex/OCMD area yesterday.
We wanted to wish all our IRM slipholders the best of luck in the Mid-Atlantic Fishing Tournament this week! Bring us another win home!
Tons of blue and white marlin releases being reported offshore. Record-breaking wahoo hitting the scales, mahi limits being hauled in, and scattered yellowfin tuna.
These pop-up storms are definitely stirring up the fish!
Inshore reports plenty of flounder for last week’s Flounder Pounder, as well as bluefish, and limits of spot coming out of inshore.
Keep your eyes on that leaderboard – good luck again to our IRM boats!
Wishing everyone tight lines and good times til next time!
