Fishing Report 9-20-17

If you have been brave enough to handle the swells out there this past week, you probably caught some fish…just like these folks:

“On the Hunt” fished between the Baltimore Canyon and the Poor Man’s and hooked up with this 66.8lb wahoo. It was caught by junior angler Sammy Brittingham of Smyrna, DE using a black and purple Joe Shute lure.  Pictured are Kevin Scuse,  John Coleman, angler Sammy Brittingham Jr.  and Sam Brittingham, Sr. all from Smyrna, DE.

Lisa Scarduzio of Avondale, PA caught about 20 fish while fishing on the Judy V. with Capt. Eddie Wheedleton, but was only able to keep this one flounder. It measures 17″ and weighed 1.6lbs and was caught just south of B-Buoy using cut bait.

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.

Don’t forget to stop by the Fisherman’s Flea Market on Saturday, Sept 9, 2017, from 9am to 3pm.  Our slipholders will have fishing gear and boat related items for sale.

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.

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.
