"Mixed Bag" | World Cat- 33' | 04/27/08
 

Captain Roger and First Mate Boston Rob took a Stream Charter today. Roger and Boston reported spotty grouper and dolphin action however they did manage to land some nice ones, and saved the day with a large catch of excellent sized sea bass. Roger feels the picking up annd expects great success on his next trip! You'll have to excuse me for the lack of details, but Clark Kent here was running late and fell down on the job.

"Golf Gator" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/26/08
 

You anglers who are also golfers should pay close attention to this picture. I kid you not, this picture is not a joke, it has not been doctored or anything else. The man who took this photo is a great friend of mine and lives on a green at Oyster Bay Golf Course. He keeps his camera trained on the green and took this shot. This may not be about salt water fishing, but it does give you something to think about if you are a golfer or enjoy fishing some of our many ponds. Check out the golf ball on his back..can you say mulligan?

"Next Boat" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/26/08
 

Don Williamson, the Captain of the "Black Gold" Hydra Sport was the next up at the Fishing Center's scales. Don and his crew of his nephew, Chase, Bob Jordan and Amy Jordan put a citation Wahoo weighing 67.3 lbs on the OIFC scales. They were fishing the Winyah Scarp when they noticed a lot of bait fish jumping in the area. Soon after they slayed this great Wahoo. Skill was with them as Amy is the SKA Division 9 Lady Angler of the Year. Having talent as well as good looks on board paid off. Speaking of pay off...they were not entered in the OIFC Rodeo either. As expensive as fishing is this day and time, it would be worth the entry fee ($20 per species) to sign up for the Rodeo, it will probably be more helpful in covering your expenses than any politician could ever be, even in an election year.

"Roof Job" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/26/08
 

Randy Wallace of Hickory, N.C., and Ocean Isle Beach (Wallace Roofing Co.) and captain of the Roofing Contender had a day at the 100/400 most of dream of. He ventured out there by himself and managed to boat a 46 and 36.6 lb. wahoo. He said he fought and released 7 more. Isn't it tough being Randy? Though at the time he held the record 'hoo catch for the day, he was soon to be knocked off by Black Gold. Also I might mention that Randy was not signed up for the OIFC Rodeo and probably would have made the board if he had been. Anyway congratulations to Randy! Check out the pictures I was able to get.

"Trout Fishin'" | Speckulator - 22' | 04/25/08
 

I'm fresh back in from fishing with Jeff Beck, Captain Roger and Boston Rob on Jeff's Scout 240 Bay Boat. The weather and water was great, with the air temp. in the 70's and water ranging from 66-69 degrees. We headed out with Jeff and Rogers "trout candy". We set up south of Sunset Beach. On the way we were joined by Brian and Austin Aycock who were getting in some last minute fishing before taking care of the last minute details for Austin and Tripp's Inshore Tournament this weekend. As we all pretty much fished the same area, we stayed in touch. Austin got cut off on one strike, but did manage to hit luck on other trout. Jeff and Roger were having good fortune with trout and even some blues. Jeff boated a 4.30 lb. trout which put him third in the money for the OIFC Year Round Rodeo. I'm sure with a 4.30 lb'r. he won't stay long. At the OIFC dock we talked with Captain Jeff Williams of Get Busy Charters, www.getbusy.com, who fishes some for the OIFC.He was preparing for an afternoon charter on a falling tide. I hope to get a report from him. Capt. Roger, & Captain Chris both have Gulf Steam charters this weekend so I hope to have some reports from them. Don't forget Austin and Trips Tournament this weekend, Kyles Inshore Tournament and the Far Out Shoot Out coming up. Also be sure to sign up for the OIFC Year Round Fishing Rodeo.

"Trout" | Speckulator - 22' | 04/23/08
 

I talked with Captain Jeff Williams, who advised he had good luck in "the river", landing 20 some trout in one trip. Jeff Beck and I braved the north wind, and a full moon high tide with moderate success in Tubbs Inlet. Later in the day I watched a family pulling in one trout after another down by the Sunset Bridge. I've been told by reliable sources that catches have been made as far south the jetties. Looks like bites along our waterway. Jeff B.'s kayaks should be in shortly and he'll begin chartering shallow water and eco trips. Call the OIFC at 575-FISH if you're interested.

"North Wind" | World Cat- 33' | 04/23/08
 

Captain Roger and first mate Boston Rob had a half day charter with Steve Elam and his group ranging from Atlanta to Michigan. They faced a stiff north wind and choppy seas, with Rob getting drenched by a rogue wave breaking over the bow. The crew who were targeting sea bass managed to boat a lot of one of the seas tastiest fish while making it home just ahead of the rain.

"Inshore Update" | Speckulator - 22' | 04/23/08
 

Alright folks, the magical time of year when everything breaks loose and the fish start snapping is upon us. The water temps are finally up where they need to be (upper 60s - 70deg), and the fish have really responded well. The trout bite is really picking up and the big girls have been on the feed prior to spawning. Quite a few fish from 5 - 8 pounds have been caught recently, and this pattern should continue for the next few weeks. The flounder bite is also beginning to kick into gear, with places like Tubbs inlet and Cherry Grove producing fish recently. Finaly, the old faithful redfish are still around in the same places they have been all winter, so a inshore slam is not out of the question right now. So get on the water and go fishing, and don't forget to come fish the Spring Inshore Classic, May 2nd and 3rd.

"What's up ?" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/23/08
 

Filled up fishing class for Thurs-Fri, so we are getting set for a big weekend. Also have a full class on Sat-Sun. The weather is looking AWESOME for Fri-Sun and maybe beyond, and I'm excited about the fishing. Maybe this will be the week it breaks loose offshore? If you get on the water this weekend try any of the OIFC boats on VHF 11- OIFC World Cat, ShowTime, It Works-- or simply- how bout the OIFC-- anybody out there? In other news- I am getting to work on organizing the Jolly Mon King Classic and hope for another great year. Last year's record breaking 360 boat entries is a steep challenge, but the effort will be there, I hope you will be there too. I am putting together the program now and if anyone is interested in advertising with the Jolly Mon and/or Fall Brawl, please email me at captbrant@oifc.com or call (910) 575-3474 xt 3 --I have a program in place that offers an entry for a certain level of advertising, thus if you plan to fish and would like to get your business out there, you can combine the objectives AND write off the advertising/entry fee. I hope to see you on the water this weekend. Also- Far Out Shoot Out brochures have been out and we put them up and down the coast last week. If you want one and don't have one, email me - captbrant@oifc.com or call (910) 575-3474 xt 3 and I'll get it right out.

"Unique FOSO Opportunity" | World Cat- 33' | 04/23/08
 

For anyone who wants to maximize their Far Out Shootout experience, Ben Wilson (Team Grumpy) will be leading an overnight bottomfishing expedition to the Frying Pan Tower area, leaving the afternoon of May 9, weather permitting.  Any fish caught that night won't count towards your FOSO total as lines in begin at 8:00 the next morning, but it should be a great opportunity to fish out there with some buddies and hopefully catch some nice grouper and snapper to go with that tuna, dolphin, and wahoo!  You need not be entered in the tournament, anyone can go!  If interested, contact Ben at bfwilson@gmail.com.

"Today's Report" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/21/08
 

Had a Stream school today. We left inlet at 5am and had lines in at 7:30am- North winds 10-15 kts. We ran to the 100/400 and found a temp rip in 140 feet from 71-72.5 then go another 1/2 mile and another rip from 72-75 degrees-- ideal conditions, but the fishing just isn't hitting on all cylinders. We had a full moon and were under a big dome of low pressure, maybe that's the problem- but the conditions were very good. The day did start with a bang. I had the class rig the first two baits and they were setting them out. I had them both holding their rods and letting them to flat line distance to get an idea of where the line should be. WHAM- a 40 pound Wahoo skies up under one of the baits and nearly jerks the rod out of the anglers hands-- it was a clean hookup and the fish was angled and gaffed by the class. We worked on setting lines, working baits at depth and understand how the lines work together. We managed a few Kings and missed a couple of smaller fish. I noticed some commercial boats working offshore so we headed out to 300 feet to check it out. The water was bluer and we started to see a few Flying Fish. The planer rod went off and the class boated another 40 pound Hoo'. We picked up lines at noon as two of the class had to get home to D.C. that night. We had a decent catch, and I have high hopes for the next week once the moon dies out and the low pressure moves on. Stand by-Also, I've got a Stream class that was a reschedule date this Thursday PM and fishing all day Friday. The weather forecast for Friday is perfect and there are still 2 spots open-- give us a call and get on board to hone your Gulf Stream trolling skills- call (910) 575-3474

""She Works"" | World Cat- 33' | 04/21/08
 

The OIFC isn't just family oriented, it is family owned and operated with everyone pulling their weight! Captain Brant is the name behind Captain Brant's Fishing Adventures, Captain Roger, one of the senior Captains is Captain Amy's brother and Captain Amy, Brant's wife a fishing record holder, is the driving force behind the OIFC Store. Captain Barrett, who is a noted offshore and inshore fisherman runs his parasail operation out of the OIFC and tournament fishes with brother Brant. Let's not forget Rube, an accomplished fisherman and a force behind the OIFC. Last but not least is Doppler, perhaps the most popular "employee" at the OIFC. To provide proof that Captain Amy really works, check out these pictures of her in action, doing the not so glamerous chore of cleaning the World Cat after a long day of Gulf Stream fishing.

"100/400 produces" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/21/08
 

The Fishin' Physician captained by Dr. Kendall Suh from OIB struck again today at the 100/400. Dr. Suh, accompanied by Mike Ennis, Nathan Ennis, Bob Johnson and Mark Speltzhausen landed 3 Dolphin, 1 King and 3 Wahoo, of which one weighed 45.55 lbs. and 42.20. That's the short and sweet of it, the story is in the pictures.

""Slack Jack"" | Show Time- 34' | 04/21/08
 

That's what Captain Roger and first mate Boston Rob named the Black Jack Hole today because it just wouldn't give up many fish. The Showtime and her charter including Captain Jim Brincefield of Camden, N. C., and Scott Fairfax who put the trip together and won the biggest fish, managed to boat 3 Black Fin Tuna a 'cuda and a King while pulling cedar plugs. Capt. Jim said they had eight additional strikes they just couldn't land. The charter members said that the seas were perfect and they had a great time. Captain Jim runs a headboat out of Virgina Beach and will have action shots on his web site, Captjim.com.

"Fishing Monday" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/20/08
 

I tried to sneak out this AM (Sun) behind all the storms to get to the Stream.  I felt the wind was going to settle through the day and thus made the attempt- I was right about that.  Problem was that it blew so hard before and during the storms, there was a hellacious swell this early AM-- I cleared Shallotte inlet at 7am in the ShowTime and it was rolling pretty good-- even though the tide was high, the huge and sharp swells were breaking across the inlet which made getting out interesting-- not an issue of water depth, just waves.  Anyway, we cleared that hurdle and I pushed up the throttles but the swells were so sharp with no backs at all that I could only make 13 knots without jumping off the backs of them- it was obvious the ride would not work and thus I decided to turn it around before we got anywhere-- and then we got to go back through the inlet again-- WHEEE-- anyway, my group of father and son made adjustments in their schedule and we're going to go for it on Monday.  The weather looks like it will be nice and based on the satellite temp shot, there is a great eddy still over the Black Jack and 100/400 -- this eddy has been in place now for several days which should mean the fishing will be better than previous days-- Stand by for a report-- the objective is a slam-- Tuna, Dolphin and Wahoo-- we'll see-- Capt. Roger will be out also on the ShowTime-- we'll be on VHF 11-

"Mud Crabs" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/20/08
 

I'd never heard of these critters, but our supplier dropped off some today and says they are killer bait for Sheepshead, drum and the like. They are often confused for fiddler or stone crabs and are rigged like fiddler crabs. We'll have them on a trial bases and they will sell for $6.00 a dozen. Let's see how they work.

""Sails'manship"" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/20/08
 

Chris Mezzanotte of Charlotte told Capt. Brant and me that he was fishing with his sons, Chris, Jr., Zach, and John Hughes last Thursday when they hooked up with three sailfish. They were fishing 2 tenths of a mile from the 100/400 using ballyhoo. Shouldn't we all have this experience!!

"Rodeo Rumble" | Speckulator - 22' | 04/20/08
 

We've got us a sure enough competition going on in the trout division of the OIFC Rodeo. This pay per view pits Capt. Kyle of the Speckulator vs. Brandon Sauls of the Bone-Crusher. Both of these fishermen are heavy weights in the InShore Division. Capt. Kyle weighed in on 4-18 with a 5.20 pound Trout. The very next day Brandon struck a decisive blow weighing in a 7.95 pounder. I'm not one to stir things up, but Kyle has said no way will Brandon take this one. He said he told Sauls where to fish and that Brandon's luck was just that, and it has run out!!! I've not interviewed Bone-Crusher yet. This is just round one...stay tuned, Speckulator is on the ropes!!!
