"Bottom Fishing Charter" | OIFC | 12/27/14
 

Capt. Brant and Brandon Sauls took a group of businessmen on a bottom fishing trip.  They started out like many folks today, on a blue fin recon but finished off a beautiful day at sea with  very successful bottom fishing.

"First Mate- Ben Morris Biloxi trip account" | OIFC | 12/23/14
 

First Time in Biloxi

 

            This past week I got the chance to go down and fish the oil rigs of the northern Gulf with fellow OIFC team members; Sean Morris, Derek Treffinger and Brant McMullan.  This was my first time ever getting to fish around the oil rigs however the rest of the crew had all been before and had told me about how great it was so I was excited to finally check it out for myself and it definitely lived up to the hype. 

We started out jigging blue runners off of a couple different oil rigs with butter bean jigs and the action never really stopped from there.  We arrived at the spot where we were targeting Yellow fin Tuna and started to chunk Bonita as we drifted.  While we were doing this I free lined a blue runner back behind the boat and went back to chunking.  About five minutes later something smoked the blue runner, Sean was on the rod and fought the fish for a good 15 to 20 minutes and it turned out to be our first Yellow fin of the day. 

We started off hot but had a very hard time trying to get anything past the dozens of sharks for about the next hour so we decided to change up our tactics and fly a kite.  We do a lot of kite fishing on charters here in Ocean Isle but I have never experienced anything quite like kite fishing in the gulf, I think the longest amount of time we had a bait last under the kite may have been about 4 minutes.  We had multiple kings sky on the kite baits with sharks in hot pursuit right behind them, I think we all had more fun watching the aerial acrobatics of the many king strikes we had then actually catching them.

 As fun as this was, we weren’t getting the Yellowfin bites we were in search of so again we decided to switch it up and troll ballyhoo.  This also yielded the same result as kite fishing.  With multiple king bites and some false albacore, we caught one of our bigger kings of the day doing this when he skied on the long rigger bait which was a blue and white sea witch. 

After doing this for a good hour with still no Tuna, we decided to give chunking one last chance as the day was coming to a close. We sat down to start a drift and dropped some chunks of Bonita in the water as quick as possible before the sharks could find the boat and finally got the bite we were looking for that ended up being our second Yellowfin of the day. Shortly after that one was landed the sharks swarmed our boat to where, once again, we couldn’t get anything past about 10 feet of water.  After battling the sharks for a little while longer we decided to make one last move for the day. We moved quickly to another spot and again dropped a chunk in as soon as the boat stopped and once again hooked up with another Yellowfin, which would end up being our third and final Tuna of the trip.  It was a perfect way to cap off an amazing trip and day on the water.

"Stocking Stuffers" | Do Work / OIFC | 12/23/14
 

~~Last minute stocking stuffers. The Britt's Bucktails  are mine I bought to fish our Trout Tournament Saturday.  The Tournament requires the anglers use artifical bait only!


These products are made locally by local anglers who know what catches fish in our area.  Support local businesses, especially when they know their business.

Shane Britt (Britts Bucktails) is one of the premier inshore anglers.  He also fishes the SKA Trail aboard the "Shock Wave".  The Carolina Rigs and trout rigs are made by me.  Capt Jeff Beck and I used to fish inshore exclusively.  We have won or placed in the money in several flounder tournaments.  We also now fish the SKA Tournament Trail aboard the OIFC/Do Work.  The King Rigs are designed and inspected by Capt. Brant.  We hand make them in the store.  The OIFC Teams use them or tie their own which are made to the same identical specs.  The products I show case work.  We stand behind them. 

Don't forget our Gift Cards are on sale..an excellent buy.  And the Roscoe Jigs.  We don't make them but we use them on bottom fishing charters.  As stated in a recent post, Capt Cane Faircloth, and Dr. Earnie Ward had good success with them a few days ago.

ANOTHER WONDERFUL STOCKING STUFFER WOULD BE THE DAVID HOOKS FAMILY FUND RAFFLE TICKETS.  STUFF A STOCKING WITH THOSE AND WIN A CHANCE TO HAVE A YETI WHILE HELPING A MUCH LOVED, RESPECTED FAMILY IN NEED!!!

"Roscoe" | Do Work / OIFC | 12/19/14
 

December 15th was a picture perfect day on the water with good friends Ernie Ward and Mike Cook. We started the morning out at daylight trolling for blue fin tuna they where around but none were caught. We finished up jigging in the stream some fine table fare. Nothing finer than fishing in Carolina.

That is Capt. Cane Faircloth's (Ollie Raja) fishing report I cut and paste from Facebook.  Today Dr. Earnie Ward (pictured with the Hogfish) came in and bought a Roscoe Jig.  Dr. Ward said they tipped the jig with squid and spanked the bottom fish.  I don't "hawk" a product unless I see that it produces.  The Roscoe Jig did.  I think the Roscoe has been a forgotten treasure.

Another stocking stuffer idea for the bottom angler on your list!!!

"30th Birthday Fishing" | Do Work / OIFC | 12/18/14
 

~~Got out on the water this morning to do a little birthday fishing. I set a goal on the way to the ramp this morning to catch 30 trout it only seemed right since I turned 30 today. Well honestly I lost count after 15. I fished a spot that I knew was holding some grown fish just couldn't connect with them caught numerous fish 18 to 23 inches, lost a red, and got a 17 inch flounder. Everything was caught on a olive and white Britt's Bucktail tipped with white curly tails and also Christmas tree/green curly tail soft plastics.-Thanks for the report Shane Britt and happy birthday!

"John and John" | Tiberias - 22' | 12/17/14
 

Home for Christmas break, John Jr. was treated to a fishing trip by his dad John Sr. We started off tossing soft plastics getting several bites from the smaller spike trout in deep water. I had a few live shrimp that Bryan Aycock was kind enough to give me after finishing his trip from a day earlier. We made a move and deployed live shrimp under a cork. There are no guarantees in fishing, but this time of year live shrimp is petty darn close. The corks were quickly disappearing under the surface with some nice speckled trout shaking on the other end. Even a few short redfish joined the action. We missed about as many as we landed. I saved the dead shrimp putting them on the bottom tempting several black drum to join the action. It was a great day on the water! The weather is looking good later this week on into the weekend. Come on down and get in on the action. See ya on the water!

"Mom got One! " | Tiberias - 22' | 12/16/14
 

My Mom has been in town for a few days. Brant called me with a surprise trip Monday. Mom and I got out late Sunday to check on the action. Tossing soft plastics we located a few trout in a couple different places. I prefer to release all my fish when scouting for the next days trip, but Mom is a fish eating machine. I allowed her to keep one for the dinner table. See ya on the water!
