"Carnival" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/18/08
 

Last night was like a big party at the OIFC.  The Giggling Mackerel was hoping, the Far Out Shoot Out  awards ceremony was going on and our charter boats were returning loaded with dolphin, wahoo and king.  Everyone, including   this ace reporter were busy  which made it tough to get a full story from each captain or angler.  But here is what I know.   Capt. Chris Dew had a half day and slammed the king, his charter then wanted to bottom fish and maxed out on sea bass.  He spent a lot of the trip around the Atlantic Ledge.  The Show Time with Captain Roger worked the Black Jack area and came back with a bounty of dolphin and wahoo. Captain Chris Burrows and the World Cat spent their time around the 100/400 and he too hammered the dolphin and wahoo.  Capt. Brant was so busy I didn't get a chance to talk with him, but the picture will show his catch.  Near shore, Captain Zach was on our "guide for a day" charter.  He accompanied some guys to the Yaupon Reef where they had a productive day using Clark Spoons catching Spanish.  All of our off shore captains  were trolling with ballyhoo rigged with Islander Heavyweights, and BWC Mini-Jags in the Charleston Mix, and pink tips.  The hot test color was pink and white.  The boats are out again today so I hope to have an update tonight.  This is a hot time of year for dolphin, wahoo and kings.  Get away from all the election hoopla and come to the OIFC to fish.  If you are landlocked check out our web store for the hottest tackle and bait.

"7th Heaven wins Far Out Shoot Out" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/18/08
 

Larry Spainhour's 7th Heaven won the Far Out Shoot Out and was crowned champ last night at the OIFC, running the table on all catagories. Brant will have the full story[fishing today].

Our charter fleet found a continuing hot bite with Dolphin as all the boats loaded up with big catches. Also good King action at the Atlantic Ledge. In addition the water is full of cobia in the 80-90 foot area, so be sure to have a spinning outfit with a cobia jig with curly tail, squid, or imitation eel, or biggest Gulp you can find.. They have been weird this year, not wanting to eat pinfish, but jumping on jig.

"AT LAST !!!!" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/17/08
 

Finally the wind has stopped howling!  We've got three OIFC boats on Gulf Stream trips today along with several from the Far Out Shoot Out so hopefully I'll have something to report tonight.  However, some anglers took advantage of the beak in the weather Wednesday and  high tailed it off shore.  The reports I got were of an awesome dolphin and wahoo  bite.  The weird thing was the wahoo were mixed in with the dolphin.  One group of fishermen were Zach Faulkner, (a guide and first mate at the OIFC), Will King (Will runs our jet ski and boat rental operation) and Allen Whitaker.  The guys ventured to the Stream in a 21 ft. single engine center console.  They found the trip to be worth it.  They got into the dolphin, all of which were gaffers, the wahoo  AND the king!  Zach said the hottest ticket were horse ballyhoo with Islander pink and white skirts, and Charleston mini jags, all of which they got from our store.  So get out today, or at least in  the next few days.  Don't forget that even if you are land locked you can order the hottest lures from Blue Water Candy, or whatever is on from our online store.  Also it would pay you to enter the OIFC Rodeo.  I'll report on today's action, with location, hotest bait and what was hitting tonight!!!!

"Far Out Shoot Out Saturday forecast" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/15/08
 

Getting my weather forecasting confidence back following my "on the money" forecast for Wednesday Thursday which offered "Perfect" conditions and lots of fish. So.. here goes Saturday. Perfect again! A weak cold front passes thru Friday night, Saturday sees Northwest winds which is showing 15-20..HOWEVER, it is a short burst of 15-20's NW and will probably have shifted before you are out of the lee of the land. When the wind goes from NW to SW, typically it will lay out completely so of course that is what I am forecasting. The last day of the FOSO should be just what it's intended to be...A Shoot Out! So go get em; the game is still on the table.

"Trailering update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/15/08
 

The boat trailering bill passed [sailed] thru committee yesterday. This is a big step, because if there is any strong opposition to a bill, committee is usually where it will get buried. This [I think] assures the bill will make it to the floor for a vote, and again, everything looks encouraging in that it has broad support on both side of the asile. Continuing congrats to all our Legislative folks and all the behind the scenes work being done by staff and private citizens to get this problem resolved.

"FOSO Update--They bit today" | World Cat- 33' | 05/14/08
 

Just got done weighing the last of the 12 boats that fished the 2008 Far Out Shoot Out today, and they definitely bit out there in the blue water.  Congratulations to Capt. Larry Spainhour on the 7th Heaven, who weighed a 39.25# dolphin and a 40.55# wahoo for a 79.80# aggregate and the current lead in the event.  It's a bit too early to celebrate, however, every boat in the field has at least one day left to improve their totals.  The tourney is still wide open, here are the unofficial standings:  1)  7th Heaven 79.80# (39.25# dolphin/40.55# wahoo) 2)  GPS Store 60.10# (26.40# dolphin/33.70# wahoo)  3)  Dirty Dog 60.00# (23.75# dolphin/36.25#  wahoo)  4)  Big Time Baby 52.95# (38.70# dolphin/ 14.05# wahoo) 5) Salty Parrot 52.70# (22.55# dolphin/ 30.15#wahoo) 6) Allyson 36.95# (19.70# dolphin/ 17.25# wahoo) 7) Job Site 32.65# (16.70# dolphin/ 15.95# wahoo)  8) Plumb Fun 34.35# (16.80# dolphin/ 17.55# wahoo) 9) Team OIFC 24.20# (24.20# dolphin)  10) Team Great Outdoors 23.30# (23.30# dolphin) 11)  Reel X-Stream 20.95# (7.15# dolphin/13.80# wahoo) 12) Black Dog 19.60# (19.60# dolphin)  13) Bloodline 18.65# (18.65# dolphin)        14) Bird Dog 13.80# (13.80# dolphin) 15)  Living Water 12.45# (12.45# dolphin)

"Far Out Shootout Update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/13/08
 

While the weather man has not cooperated the last couple days it looks like he's going to let up on us a little bit over the next several days.  Some folks have expressed concerns that the weather is not going to allow them to fish during this 8 day stretch of the tournament.  Though, it is not likely going to be perfect, tomorrow, Thursday and Saturday look very fishable with winds forecasted around 10 knots.  Don't let the sea forecast discourage you from fishing.  The forecasted large seas are not wind driven waves, they are left over residual swell from the low pressure system that departed the area yesterday.  These swell driven waves are typically spread out over long distances such that it won't affect your ability to travel or fish.  Several boats in the tournament fished this past Sunday and posted weights on the leaderboard so there will be no changing of the rules midway through the game.  The show must go on!  I will be fishing tomorrow and leaving the dock around 5am.  Give OIFC 1 a shout on channel 11 if you're headed out.  Go get em!

"The eye of the storm?" | World Cat- 33' | 05/11/08
 

I don't think it's a named hurricane, but it blew like crazy on Friday and it's blowing right now. Between the winds, we managed to fit in a full day trip with George and Tyler Yaken of Florence, SC. We left the dock a little late and found a fairly decent ride out to the Horseshoe. The fishing started off a little slow, but a high noon someone rang the dinner bell and the kings commenced to chewing. We kept a limit and released several others. As we were reeling one bait back to the boat, an estimated 25 pounder blew up on it, but managed to miss the hooks--would have been an outstanding fish for early May. We also saw a ton of cobia out there. Only two would bite, and we pulled the hooks on each pretty quickly. But most importantly, the fish are there. Randy Wallace on the Roofing Contender reports similar action from the Atlantic Ledge. It won't be long before this sloppy weather clears and we can get back after them.

"Far Out Shoot Out Weather forecast" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/09/08
 

I know all you gulf stream fishermen are waiting out there to hear it's ok to untie dock lines and head to the stream so here is the official unofficial FOSO weather forecast...PERFECT! Before you question the wisdom of my forecast[considering it's blowing the shortening out of the biscuit today], the answer is to look toward the future. First with the current weather the fish are not being fed so a major hunger should be building. Second, what better day to have a tourney sign up then the day it blows. Perfect for talking fishing, eating delicious steaks from our friends at Outback Steaks, and getting ready to go catch em as soon as the weather breaks. It looks like beginning Tuesday after the passage of the next front, the weather will stabalize and conditions should be great thereafter. Tomorrow is a maybe, but if not tomorrow, by next Tuesday the fish should be very hungrey, so look for a all out bite to develop with record catches for the tourney. Remember the format of the FOSO allows you to pick any 2 days from Saturday to next Saturday to fish, thus taking the weather issue out of the equation. The only question left is how big a tuna/dolphin/wahoo is it going to take to win the glory and the bucks. Last weeks tourney out of Charleston took a 68lb dolphin to win. Come join us tonight for registration and festivities at the OIFC.

"A report from the shore" | World Cat- 33' | 05/08/08
 

This may well be the peak of spring fishing. A friend of mine, Jason Hart, from Wilkesboro has done a number on the fish this week for his vacation. He has caught three limits of spanish mackerel from the pier on different days, and fishing from shore, caught this stud bluefish on the west end of the island. Jason is a hard core freshwater bass fisherman, but did not bring his boat down for the week. He is proof that the fish don't care where or what you fish from--if you can think like a fish, you can fill the cooler up!!!

"Channel Bassin'" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/08/08
 

Yesterday was virtually a picture perfect day to be on the water, no wind, not too hot, not too cold, and the fish were biting. With the lunar tides we're having, we virtually had a high - rising tide all morning, so I decided to chase the redfish in the skinny water on some flooded oyser bars down toward Little River. We floated lived shrimp suspended under corks through these areas, and were rewarded with a steady bite of fish in the 16 - 18" class that lasted most of the morning. The fish weren't monsters, but they were no less fun to catch, proving that pound for pound the redfish is hardest fighting fish in the backwater. The fishing is getting better every day, so come on down and lets go get'em!

"Yesterdays big family adventure" | World Cat- 33' | 05/08/08
 

Considering taking up fishing as a sport. The family had a very nice day on the water. Caroline was absolutely great on the water-- she had her ups and a few downs, but between catching fish, playing with Barbie and eating, and sleeping, she was great. Amy and Stephanie worked the Sea Bass over while Barrett and I worked the Kings and Cobia-- oh yeah, Rube was there too- he caught 1 I think. Speaking of Cobia- they are thick offshore in 80-100 feet of water-- tons of them- BIG ONES- get ready!!

"Offshore report nearly an echo" | World Cat- 33' | 05/08/08
 

Just got confirmation from Brian Richard that the Gulf Stream was just as hot as everywhere else. Then Winyah Scarp went off yesterday and there were gaffers and wahoos everywhere. I heard of boats catching up to 40 dolphin, but sometimes, seeing is believeing...

"Get Busy" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/07/08
 

Jeff, Pam, and I took Camdyn out on the Scout today on a "get used to the boat" ride. We happened upon Captain Jeff Williams of Get Busy Charters, who charters for the OIFC. Captain Williams said he and his charter limited out on Spanish. They were fishing the Shallotte Buoy area using gold and silver Clark Spoons. Jeff told us that when the sun got up high the Spanish tore up the gold spoons. The OIFC stocks Clark Spoons and all Spanish tackle. You can order supplies from our Online Store at store@oifc.com or call us at 910-575-fish. Happy fishing!!

"No lack of action" | World Cat- 33' | 05/07/08
 

I've heard a lot of reports today, and tbe best that I can tell is that it was hot everywhere today. The kingfish bite was ON at the Atlantic Ledge, according to John Jarvis on the "Four Sons." Another report came from the Ocean Isle Pier, where quite a few limits of Spanish mackerel came to those fishing Gotcha! plugs. Capt. Brant, Capt. Amy, Capt. Barrett, Stephanie, Rube and Caroline scored well on the kings, then hopped around to catch some amberjack and other bottomfish. Anglers fishing the west end of Ocean Isle in Tubbs Inlet caught bluefish up to 10 pounds and Capt. Kyle did well on the channel bass on his charter. I'm guessing the Gulf Stream was equally hot, but I haven't talked to anyone who has been out there yet. Capt. Roger is going tomorrow, I'll bet he does well out there. In the meantime, make plans to fish soon. It's going on right now!!!

"Going Fishin'" | World Cat- 33' | 05/06/08
 

The family is going fishing tomorrow- Brant, Amy, Caroline, Rube, Barrett and Stephanie aboard the World Cat- we're taking Caroline for her first offshore trip which will hopefully include something between a Grouper and a Dolphin. We've got live Pinfish for bottom fishing and we'll start at that and then see where we go from there. The Stream fishing for Dolphin should be hot, so that is enticing. Stay tuned. We're equipped with blanky, coloring books, Barbie, and lots of food......

"Red Snapper" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/05/08
 

Linwood Wynne of Shallotte weighed in a nice, citation 19.75 lb. Snapper today. Linwood caught the Red in 95 feet of water on sardines. He was fishing with Brian Richards of OIB, Todd Heff, Dave (sorry last name not know) among other friends. The fishing for all species the past few days has been excellent and should only get better.
