 The most difficult part of using live shrimp is keeping them alive!

In our area there a two main factors that kill shrimp in bait buckets. Overcrowding,

Overcrowding

Many anglers will buy a large amount of live shrimp to last them the entire day and place them all in a small bucket only to find that with in a few hours they are all dead. To help avoid this it is best to keep large amount of shrimp in a large container or multiple small ones.

A good rule of thumb is to keep no more than one dozen shrimp per gallon of container for any long period of time. If all other conditions are met, 50-60 shrimp can live almost all day in 5 gallons of water.

Bait BucketLack of Oxygen

Shrimp in a small container will quickly deplete the oxygen in their water and die shortly after. A good solution to this is either a bubbler or a water circulation pump. Both of these disturb that water surface quite a bit and cause the water to absorb more oxygen. The more shrimp that are in a container the more water movement and oxygen that is needed.

Another simple solution for this is to use flow through bait buckets. These are the buckets that have holes in them and all the angler to lower them into the water so the bait always has a source for clean and aerated water.

The OIFC sells aireators, buckets with an aireator & Frabil flow through bait buckets.

"Motivated" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/20/14
 

It is difficult to get motivated to go fishing when the temperature starts off in the 20's. I have talked to several folks who are wearing out the trout. I eased down to the dock this morning taking note of how clear and green the water has gotten. There was very little wind this morning and the tide was approaching dead low. I started to feel that itch! I just hope they continue to bite like this through the weekend. Some solid trout between 2 to 4 pounds are hanging around. All the usual places this time of year seem to be producing. From the Little River jetties to the Cape Fear river channel. White and chartruese colored soft plastics worked extremely slow with a little pro-cure scent did the trick today. I rather catch them on soft plastics myself. However, we have live shrimp available for $5 dozen. I don't expect they will last long, so come get'em. See ya on the water!

"Trout Fishing With Artificials" | Do Work / OIFC | 11/17/14
 

~This was posted by Shane Britt, an excellent local angler who fishes almost exclusivly with artificials, Shane Britt

In the past 2 day.s I have probably caught 60 to 80 trout with a 80% keeper ratio. Finally got in a nice little spot this evening where these 3 to 4 lb fish made there new home in my cooler. All other fish was released healthy bsack to be caught another day. All fish were caught on a variety of bucktails tipped with various soft plastics. Main producer has been a mullet imitation bucktail with some sort of chartreuse grub. Not 1 peice of live bait has been thrown.

Thanks for the info Shane

I would suggest using a Spro 1/4 oz bucktail tipped with Berkley gulp chartreuse grubs or New Penny grubs or shrimp.  All have been having excellent results.-Capt. Rickey

The 2nd picture is of trout Brett Fulford caught Sunday while fishing the Lockwood Folly River with a friend.  Brett said these hit on a MirrOlure he was pitching on a grassy bank

~~The trout bite was on at the Little River Jetties today. Well until the cold rain came then who cared. Not sure if the flounder bite was on at the OIFC but if it was barefooted Brayden was ready. BTW Jeff was using the Ocean Isle Fishing Center's hand tied trout rigs. Made by your's truly to match the local bite.

"Dust Has Settled" | Do Work / OIFC | 11/12/14
 

Everyone is back from the Nationals a little tired but safe and sound.  Now our focus is turning to the hot trout bite in our area.  Today, Shane Britt fished the Shallotte River and had some pretty good luck.  Shane said he was using a buck tail tipped with a soft plastic artifical on the rising tide. There have been a lot of trout caught on  white Gulp grub and shrimp on a red jig head.  The fish must have had a convention and decided they liked the Gulp New Penny again because trout are being caught on them.  Come on down and enjoy a less crowded ICW, shop the OIFC, get a good meal and watch the game or race at the Wing Company and take advantage of the trout bite.

"Mr. Goodhands/Sea P.A Nationals Recap" | | 11/11/14
 

About a month before Nationals I called Ken Ritch of Team Sea P.A./OIFC and asked him if he would like to join up with Team Mr. Goodhands/OIFC to fish the SKA Nationals. I think it took less than 4 hours and we had decided it was a go. The combined team would consist of myself, my Father Rusty Russ, my son Grayson Russ, Jeff Mcdonald, Ken Ritch, and his son Matt. We decided that we would take Ken's 31ft Cape Horn to Biloxi. The plan was that myself and Jeff would take the boat down early in the week to secure bait and do a little prefishing if we had time. We arrived in Biloxi about midday on Monday and splashed the boat and got it secured in the slip at Point Cadet Marina behind the Golden Nuggett. Since we had plenty of daylight left we headed off in search of some mullets to put in the bait tank. We found about a half dozen of fattest mullet I think I have ever seen. We got them off loaded into the bait tank and it was off to check into The Palace Casino, our home for the next week. We decided we would run offshore on Tuesday in search of Blue Runners. We made a 50 mile run to some rigs in the main pass area and made short work of getting 6 dozen nice Blue Runners and were back at the marina by 12:00. We got the boat cleaned up in time to go watch the Pro Tournament weigh in and wait for Ken and Matt to arrive later that evening. Wednesday's forecast was blowing a little so we decided to kind of take a rest day and do a little prep work and await the arrival of Mine and Jeff's wives and Grayson. Thursday's forecast was for light winds and nice seas so we decided to run back out and catch more bait and make the 80+ mile run to the legendary Salt dome area where we would more than likely be fishing come tournament day. We picked up a couple dozen more baits and headed to the Dome. We put lines out and immediately hooked up with two giant sharks. We got them to the boat and released them and put the lines back out. Just a few minutes later the reel started screaming and there was no doubt, this was a good fish. We brought a mid 30's king boat side, took a few pictures and then released it. Next we had a 50+ pound wahoo at boat side just long enough for it to bite through the leader and swim off. Shortly after that the wind started to pick up and we decided it was time to go so we could get back and get cleaned up for the Captains meeting and await for my father Rusty to arrive. The forecast for Friday was calling for small craft warnings due to a strong cold front coming through. The SKA made the decision to cancel the first day of fishing and have a one day shoot out on Saturday. Everybody on the team kind of did their own thing on Friday and relax before Saturday's shootout. Tournament morning is here and we are all excited about what the day would bring. We made the decision we would go to the Salt Dome area to fish. We met at the boat at 4:45 to load boat and get in the check out line. All the boats started checking out at 5:45am and were awaiting the 6:00am call over the radio to go fish. The call was given and the boat race was on. It was a sight to see, some boats reaching speeds of 65+ MPH heading offshore. We arrived at the Salt Dome about 7:45am and almost every boat there seemed to be hooked up. It only took a few minute and fish on. We decided we would gaff the first two fish and upgrade from there. In less than an hour we had two fish in the bag. The first two fish were a mid 30's and a mid 20's. Its a start, but definitely not what we needed to win. Over the next two hours we continued to catch bigger fish and upgrade our fish. The biggest fish we had of the day got eaten by a huge hammerhead shark right next to the boat. What we got back weighed 30lbs, so we guess that fish to be in the mid 40's before it became shark food. We decided we needed to leave about 2:30 to give us enough time to get back. We had two fish that we thought to be in the 40lb range and felt good about what we had to weigh in. we made it back in time and proceeded to wait our turn to weigh in. We weighed our fish and had a two fish aggregate of 77.2 lbs which put us in 21st overall in the open division. Its not enough for the win, but we are proud of our finish. Congrats to all the boats from Brunswick County that weighed fish, and a big congrats to Brian and Austin Aycock for winning the 23and Under National Championship. Captain Toby Russ

"What a Year" | Hail Yeah / OIFC | 11/11/14
 

Thanks to everyone for all of the kind words. I still cannot believe we actually pulled it off, we are the 2014 Small Boat National Champions! It has been a really long year and at times I was pretty sure the boat wouldn't be ready, but we made it by the skin of our teeth. The entire ride back from Biloxi, I reflected on the rebuild and all the people that helped and contributed to the process. The one thing that I kept coming back to was, there would have been no way for us to complete this huge task without the generosity of Mike Kennerly. He allowed us to use his shop over the winter so we could begin the repairs indoors. For his kindness, we might let Mike touch the trophy? Also, much free labor was provided by friends and several members of Team OIFC. Thanks for all the help, we will see about getting everyone an autograph, but touching the trophy is out of the question.

 

I was a little worried that we would be a little under-manned this year with only 2 people, but fortunately we managed. Austin and I had 3 bites and caught 3 fish. The pro tourney saw a lot of fish come from the Salt Dome, but we wanted a little less traffic. With only 2 people we would need to be able to let a fish get a little stretched out and not have to worry about getting tied up in someone else’s lines. Eddie Julian of the “Off Limits” had been on some fish earlier in the week at the Exxon and it sounded like a perfect place to set up. We checked out and headed straight to the Exxon. As we arrived it looked like several boats were hooked up. As we settled in, the bite shut down. The area we were fishing had 5 boats when we arrived, by the time we were hooked up to our first fish, everyone was clearing out. We were alone for the rest of the day. We hung out in the same spot all day. After we caught our third fish, we decided it was getting time to head to the scales. We left a little earlier than we probably should have, but after missing weigh in last year with some nice fish, we were determined to make it to the scales this year.

 

The whole ride in, I played “what if” in my mind. Finally, after running for about an hour, the question finally came up, “what do you think about our fish?” I don’t think either of us really wanted to say we had good fish, we just didn’t want to jinx it. When we got back in phone range I received a text saying that a small boat had just weighed a 61# fish. My heart hit my shoes. Devastation. I cannot express the empty feeling that I had. We had given it our all, and had been beaten by the first boat to weigh in. It seemed like hours to get an answer to my question, “what is their 2nd fish”? I bet I looked at my phone 30 times in 30 seconds. Then I got the text beep, I couldn’t look, I couldn’t face the fact that our National Championship dreams had been destroyed by the first boat to weigh, I couldn’t imagine that the news on that phone screen could be good, I just couldn’t face it. Time stopped. The boat stopped moving, but the ocean kept going by. I finally took a deep breath, turned the phone over and saw my new favorite number of all time, 16! It was at that exact point that I knew 2014 would be our year. We went to the scales and weighed a 42.14 and a 44.82 and took the lead. Anyone that knows me, knows that I try to fish until the last possible minute. I never have weighed in really early. This time we were one of the first boats to weigh and it was an absolute gut wrenching couple of hours watching the weigh in. It seems like 400 small boats weighed in. With each passing boat the excitement built. We kept getting closer and closer to another devastating blow as I waited for someone to drop a couple of 50’s on the scale. It never happened, it was our year to bring the Championship back to NC. It was our year to be the Small Boat National Champion. I think only Disney could have scripted a better story than ours.

 

I would like to thank the OIFC and the entire McMullan family for tolerating us as team members, looks like you are stuck with us now. Thanks also to SeaTow Ocean Isle Beach, I’m not sure there is a better group of people to count on in an emergency. Angler’s Marine was instrumental in getting the engines dialed in after all the repair work. Livewire Electronics also took the mystery out of the boats electrical system. Thanks to Team Do Work/OIFC for letting us tag along in several tourney this year. Rickey Beck kept the entire OIFC family back home updated on what was happening in Biloxi. It was a job someone else will have to do next year, as I expect Rickey will not spend another Nationals on the sidelines! Thanks for reporting for us Rickey. Again, thanks to Mike Kennerly. Finally and most importantly, thanks to my wife Tiffany for always being there to support us in our tournament dreams. Maybe one day I will actually tell you how much this addiction really costs!

 

The Southern Kingfish Association did a great job with the nationals this year. Please encourage all of your tournament fishing friends to join the SKA and participate in the nationals next year. Only 361 more days till the 2015 National Championship!

"Backwater School Sunday" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/11/14
 

Peter, Ross, and Cody joined me Sunday to learn the soft plastic technique to put a few trout in the box. It took a bit more patience and persistence than expected for this time of year. We did manage to get our limit and even had to throw a few back with a nice 4.6 flounder in the mix. We caught all of our fish on 4" Sea Shads by Bass Assassin. Top three colors were limetruese ghost, albino ghost, and sand trout. The highlight of our trip was seeing tailing redfish. Yes! We did manage to double up on reds before watching them tail away into the sunset. Thanks Peter, Ross, and Cody for fishing with me! See ya on the water!

"Backwater School Saturday" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/10/14
 

Cary, Joe, and Tom joined me this past Saturday eager to take their new classroom knowledge to the water. The guys quickly put a limit in the live wells and we picked through them all day. A few flounder and a redfish also joined the action late in the day to complete our Inshore Carolina Slam. Our biggest trout for the day hit the scales at 4.5 pounds. The class focused on using soft plastics only to target speckled trout. We used Vudu Shrimp, Pro-cure scents, and 4" Sea Shads by Bass Assassin in various colors to do our damage. Pairing 4" Sea Shads with a 1/8th ounce jig head in limetruese ghost, albino ghost, and sand trout colors produced the most vicious strikes. Trout were schooled best near slack water areas just up or down current of small creeks. More trout were scattered throughout numerous little rip lines behind oyster bars and sand bars. Sure hope more of this action continues through the next several weeks. Thanks Cary, Joe, and Tom for fishing with me. See ya on the water!
