Fenwick Island Seafood Restaurant | Fresh Seafood Market | Selbyville, DE - Captain Mac's Fish House

OUR STORY

Bruce McGuigan grew up near the water, spending his time recreational and commercial fishing until his passion led him to open Captain Mac’s Bait & Tackle. Opening the doors in 1983, Bruce and his father, Charles “Mac” McGuigan, provided Fenwick Island with professional equipment and expert advice for 32 years. In 2012, Bruce and his family chose to grow their passion for fresh, local seafood and opened Lone Mullet Seafood Market next door. Specializing in freshly caught fish, local stone crab claws, and steamed-to-order Maryland blue crabs, Bruce began the transition from catching to cooking. Having spent much of his life fishing in small towns from the Florida Keys to Baja, Bruce noticed a correlation between fresh fish and good food. With his “simple-is-better” mindset, Bruce began planning his next move. After the 2013 season, with a little push from Hurricane Sandy, the McGuigans tore down the old tackle shop and began a new. After a 20-year dream, the doors opened just in time for Memorial Day weekend of 2014, and Captain Mac’s Fish House quickly became a local sensation.

We specialize in fresh, local seafood that comes right from the boat to our showcase. Here at Captain Mac’s, we believe that fish should never be frozen, farm-raised, or shipped across the country. We strive to carry the freshest possible product, sourced from local fishermen here in the DelMarVa area whenever possible. We have a fresh seafood market carrying a variety of fish, shrimp, clams, oysters, stone crab claws, live crabs, and lobster ready for you to take home and cook yourself. We also steam to order crabs, shrimp, lobster, and clams. If you’re not in the mood to cook, let us do the work for you! Place your order at the counter, grab a seat at your favorite colored picnic table, and enjoy the beautiful view of the Assawoman bay and Ocean City skyline while you wait. Or, see if you can identify the many shorebirds that frequent the marsh. Our goal is to serve fresh seafood, cooked to order the way you like. We serve a full lunch and dinner menu consisting of our fresh catch of the day prepared fried, blackened, or grilled. Try our delicious homemade crabcakes, customer-favored fish tacos, appetizers including shrimp and shellfish, and many more dishes. We also serve wine by the glass or bottle as well as beer, emphasizing our local craft breweries. Please come in and see us and try a taste of the freshest possible local seafood from the man that knows best.

In memory of Andrea Lee McGuigan
 
Your soul, so restless,
so old, so pure.
You left your land to sail the distant shore
And to find what your heart wishes for.
My love, no matter where you are,
When you find yourself adrift and alone,
Let the fair winds and following seas bring you back to me,
For here you’ll find a home.
 

     On the first day of spring, March 20, 2022, Andrea Lee McGuigan took her final voyage home after a 20-year battle with ovarian cancer. The cancer lost the battle; it died with Andrea’s body. Andrea lives on with the Lord and with us. She will always be there to guide us, protect us, nurture us, and love us. But the cancer is gone.

      Andrea was born in Newton, NJ on January 21, 1963, daughter of the late Stephen Keenan and the late Ethel Daisy Keenan.  She had worked as the settlement coordinator and paralegal for Joseph C. Raskauskas, P.A.  Andrea was also the driving force in her family business, Captain Mac’s Bait & Tackle for 32 years and Captain Mac’s Fish House for the last 8 years.  She was the guiding light and factor pushing the business in a different direction after Hurricane Sandy.  She was truly a master of all trades, from payroll, accounting, and permit liaison, to painter and decorator, to food critic, therapist, and all other tasks that go with small business.

     Andrea’s love was for her family.  She provided a nurturing environment and always wanted the best for the people she loved. It was this loving and caring for others, over herself, that made her such a special person. She never wanted to burden others; as such, many did not know the severity of her illness. Her perseverance and strength (spiritual, mental, and physical) throughout her fight with cancer continues to inspire. Andrea was a steadfast wife, a devoted mother, and a loyal friend. The things that will be most missed are her wit, gentleness, good nature, and guidance.

     Andrea was a faithful member of St. Ann Catholic Church and served on the planning board for the Most Blessed Sacrament School in Ocean Pines, MD.  She loved the outdoors and looking at God’s amazing creation.  Andrea loved life on the water, spending time at the beach and in the boat with her family and dear friends, or simply birdwatching. 

​     She is survived by Bruce, her husband of 31 years; her daughter, Kirsten and husband Andrew; her son, Matthew and fiancee Alyssa; and her most faithful friend, Brego. She will always be with us.

 
 

I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and the sky come to mingle with each other.

Then someone at my side says: “There, she is gone!”
“Gone where?”
 
Gone from my sight.
That is all.

She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and she is just as able to bear the load of living freight to her destined port.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone at my side says “There, she is gone!”
There are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout:
“Here she comes!”
