"Shoulda'" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/15/09
 

Captain Roger had an exceptionally successful charter today with Ron Heisler and John Psaroudis representing PurAqua Products of Rock Hill S.C.  So successful in fact that had they entered the Far Out Shoot Out, they would be in the lead.  Shoulda', coulda', woulda'.  What would have propelled them to fame were the 28 lb. Yellowfin Tuna and 21 lb. Wahoo Ron caught added with the 21 lb Dolphin they landed to make 70 lbs. total weight.  As you can tell by the picture they put the hurt on some good fighting and better eating Dolphin.  Roger and Chris both have charters Saturday and many boats are fishing the Far Out Shoot Out so we should have a lot of exciting action to report Saturday.

"The GPS Store Far Out Shoot Out- update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/15/09
 

Fishermen have continued to enter the tournament over the past couple of days.  As of Friday at 5pm, we have 29 boats entered in the tournament and I believe there are a few more planning on entering.  Today (Friday), there are 12 boats fishing.  Results to follow, but word is the weather was good and the fishing is red hot!

7th Heaven: Dolphin- 19.85

Free Style: Dolphin- 23.2

Lazee Daze: Dolphin- 16.8, Tuna- 10.65

Malyn Jean II: Dolphin- 21.4

Ocean Isle Fishing Center: Dolphin- 15.0, Tuna- 27.95= 42.95 

Mean C: Dolphin- 23.7, Wahoo- 25.65, Tuna- 16.25 = 65.6

Salty Lady: Dolphin- 16.6, Wahoo- 44.95 = 61.55

Pomolas: Dolphin- 18.55, Wahoo- 19.50 = 38.05

Sandy Beach:

Feeding Frenzy:

Black Dog: Dolphin- 21.4, Tuna- 10.2 = 31.6

Reel X-Stream: Dolphin- 24.1

Fishing and weather were good today.  Aside from spot showers, the seas were nice and most boats made 25-30mph running offshore this AM.  The Dolphin bite continues red hot as every boat was loaded up.  The Salty Lady team nailed a nice 44.95 pound Wahoo just south of the Steeples which propelled them to 2nd overall.  The Ocean Isle Fishing Center team had a rare find- a Yellowfin Tuna at 27.95 pounds.  In addition, Capt. Roger on the Carolina Cat also had a 28 pound Yellowfin- both of them were fishing the Winyah Scarp area. 

More boats have continued to enter the tournament and the boat count is currently at 33.  Saturday is the last fishing day and 15 boats are slated to fish.  They will be weighing in between 6 and 8 pm, so come on down to watch the show.  We'll be grilling fresh Mahi from 7-8pm for participants and their families, so come on down.

""Curve Ball"" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/14/09
 

NOAA threw us a curve ball with the forecast for today.  The wind at the Tower was humming this morning, but had laid down by the afternoon.  It's a good thing the Far Out Shoot Out  declaration day format is set up the way it is, as several people had planned on fishing today.

But....fear not!  The winds have calmed!  Right now it blowing 7mph, gusting to 9mph at the Tower.  The forecast is for 10-15 mph out of the south through Saturday, with  seas of 4-6 ft.  I don't think there is any way that 10-15 mph overnight can support those kinds of seas.   The Weather Channel is calling for 79 degrees and 40% chance of rain Friday and 80 degrees and 10% chance of rain Saturday.  Bottom line.......LET'S GO FISHIN' AND WIN SOME MONEY$$$$$

"Inshore Report" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/13/09
 

The fishing continues to improve on the inshore grounds, as it seems the flounder bite is now in full swing.  All of the usual spots are holding fish, and while there are alot of throwbacks, there are starting to be some bigger ones around as well.  I know of some fish up to 6 lbs. that have been caught in the past week, and there may have been some bigger ones that I haven't heard about.  The trout and redfish are also still biting well, and the trout bite will probably continue to improve as they transition into the post-spawn in the next month or so.  So there you have it, there is no reason not to head to the beach and go fishing!

"" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/12/09
 

Jeff Martini,  Joey Arackas, John McLaurin  and Jimmy Martini caught 30 dolphin and a wahoo offshore yesterday on the "Dirty Martini."  It is awesome to see John back offshore and in good health!  Good work guys--once again proof positive that our Gulf Stream holes are hot right now.

"Tubbs On Fire !!!" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/12/09
 

Captain Jeff Williamson "Get Busy" and crew consisting of Donna Gurganus landed this 120 lb Tarpon in Tubbs Inlet on mud minnows Saturday.  NOT!!  It seems that our charter captains have caught Florida fishing fever.  Jeff landed and released alive and healthy the Tarpon which is pictured below while on a trip to Florida this weekend.  Now,  we've got all  the Captains back home, the Far Out Shoot Out in full swing and what appears to be a great fishing weekend on the horizon all we are missing is you. 

 There is no doubt that the Mahi bite is in full swing, and that's no Tarpon story.  This years' bite reminds me of a couple of years ago when the dolphinfish were a nuisance,  getting in the way when we were trying to catch Wahoo and other species.  What a fun and tasty problem.  They are hitting everything from ceder plugs,  to Islanders to Aliens, all with Ballyhoo, to probably Sun drop cans.  Join us in this fun.  Fun fish, get in the Rodeo, the GPS Store Far Out Shoot Out or just come to the Awards Night.  Also, as a final thought, we have F.O.S.O. shirts for sale, they generally go fast so don't wait too long to get yours.

 Oh, by the way, Tubbs Inlet IS on fire.  I've talked to a lot of fishermen who are slaying the Flounder in Tubbs.  Many are still small, but more and more keepers are being landed.  One person has been catching them fishing from the bank behind the west end of OIB.  I am also receiving reports of Flounder being landed in the ICW near the Shallotte Inlet.

"Feedin' Frenzy" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/11/09
 

Dolphin fishing is really heating up, and the crew of the Fishin' Frenzy has taken full advantage.  Check out Kevin Sneed, Randy Lingerfelt, and Nick Sizmore's catch of 19 dolphinfish and two kings.  The weather looks to be awesome for late week/weekend, so take full advantage.  It's not too late to get in the Far Out Shootout, so put your money where your mouth is!!!

"The GPS Store Far Out Shoot Out" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/11/09
 

Monday- 4 boats declared today.  The ride out was good, the fishing conditions were great and the first 30 miles home were good, but after that it got ROUGH as the strong North winds pushed up tall, sharp seas. 

Priceless:  21.2 Dolphin, 25.15 Wahoo = 46.35  **  new leader

Southern Hook:  22.35 Dolphin, 14.65 Wahoo = 37

Gracie May and Dirty Martini did not weigh.

Knock on wood- Friday and Saturday are looking GREAT- 5-10kts SW winds forecast!  Get geared up.  The tournament is wide open.

"Bar Pirate" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/11/09
 

Here's the fish that everyone is looking for in the Far Out Shootout, a 74 pound wahoo caught by team Bar Pirate.  Scott Aldridge, Clifton Watson, and Todd Jones nailed this stud on a red and black Ilander in the vicinity of the Steeples last week.  A fish like that would go a loooong way towards that coveted Masters jacket at the end of the year.

"Team Bloodline catches first tuna" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/10/09
 

Here is Team Bloodline, who caught the first tuna (blackfin) of the 2009 FOSO.  Tim Garrett said the team fished the Steeples area and had double digit dolphin along with some similar-sized tunas.  Remember, a solid showing in the Far Out Shootout, like Bloodline just put up, is a necessary element in competing for the OIFC Masters Championship.  Congrats to the guys who fished today, you are currently the leaders.

"Blue Bayou strikes first" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/10/09
 

Team "Blue Bayou" was the first to venture offshore in the 2009 Far Out Shoot Out and post score.  They had a 20# class wahoo and a high 20# class dolphin (Capt. Brant will post official results later).  The fish box was literally full of gaffer dolphin, as they caught 47 in all.  They are currently on the dock right now, trying to jam all the tails back in so they can make the run back to the Wilmington area.  We are still waiting for Tim Garrett and family on the "Bloodline" to make it to the scales.  Our first party noted that while it was a little sporty heading offshore this morning, the seas allowed them to run almost 60 knots on the way home.  Whoops, should have gone fishing this morning instead of sleeping in....

For those that did not make the Capt. meeting last night, we had a nice get together complete with fresh grilled Yellowfin Tuna, green beans, mash potatos and corn- can't beat that!  The GPS Store staff was on hand to demo some of their products and again, I thank The GPS Store and Sea Tow for their support. 

If you missed the 5/8 report, Capt. Roger smoked the Dolphin at the Black Jack hole.  Scroll down a bit and you'll see it.  He caught 25 Dolphin from 10-25 pounds but reported he only caught 25 because he and crew got tired- they were thick!!!

"7.2 Spanish" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/09/09
 

William Parker has taken the leader board in the OIFC Rodeo in the Spanish Mackerel Division with a 7.2 lb. Spanish.  William and Dwayne Wood were fishing just off Youpon Beach using Pogies.  They also caught several Blue Fish in the 7-8 lb range.  William said the Pogies, which he described as about hand size, were hanging on the Holden Beach end of Youpon Beach.

"Tieing The Knot" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/08/09
 

John Hayes of Taylorsville, N. C. is  at Ocean Isle Beach for a bachelors party weekend with several college and lifelong friends.  Today they fished with Captain Jeff Beck and managed some nice Red Drum, Black Drum and Flounder in the 15 to 16 inch range.  I apologize to the local fishermen, but the pictures sort of give up where they were when Douglas Bowman and Branden Stafford caught their fish.

"Florida Trip Wrap Up" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/08/09
 

Back in OIB and hittin the ground running!   It's time to go fishing.  The Florida adventure was nice reprieve before settling in for the busy summer season.  Brant, Amy, Caroline, Stephanie and I met on the west coast of Florida after Brant, Rube and I finished the kingfish tournament on the east coast of Florida last weekend.  On the west coast we stayed at the South Seas Resort on Captiva island and man is that place beautiful.  It's the prototypical island paradise atmosphere.  Palm trees, clear water, swimming pools, island music, you name it and it is there.  I highly recommend visiting the South Seas Resort if you are looking for a tropical vacation within the US.  As usual, our vacation included a fishing trip.  We met up with good friend and legendary southwest Florida guide Ozzie Fischer who runs out of South Seas on Captiva.  He is a second generation charter Capt on Captiva and NOBODY knows the water down there like Ozzie.  The fishing is simply amazing in that area.  Brant, Caroline and I went for a short few hours in Ozzie's bay boat and within 50 yards of leaving the dock we were catching fish.  We caught Tarpon up to 150lbs, ladyfish, snook, sight fished redfish, and saw giant sharks hunting tarpon.  We only fished the bay water because there was no need to go any further.  Once again, I highly recommend fishing with Capt. Ozzie if you're ever in the area.  As a matter of fact we may try to put together a Traveling Fisherman trip next year to Captiva and take a group Tarpon fishing.  Catching 100+lb tarpon in 3 feet of water is incredible.  They are powerful, acrobatic, beautiful fish.  All in all, a great vacation spot but we're glad to be home and ready to go to work on all the fish beginning to arrive off our coast.  I'm sure we'll have a detailed report tomorrow judging by the mahi massacre that occurred today on Capt. Rogers vessel.  Here are some pics from Florida.

"Prelude To F.O.S.O." | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/08/09
 

For two trips in a row Captain Roger has proven the Mahi bite is on fire.  As the Far Out Shoot Out Captains dinner was underway, Captain Roger along with his charter pulled to the dock on the Carolina Cat with over 2 dozen nice Mahi they had taken at the Black Jack.  The charter said that they had triple and quadruple hook ups going on and that the bite was steady all day.  Roger was using Aliens rigged with Ballyhoo, no secretes, nothing fancy, just basic tried and proven Mahi fishing with an excellent Captain.  The group consisted of Jeff Carey, Jose Gonzalez, Mike Ingber, Kenneth Peters, Laris Galejs, and Scott Burgess.

Tomorrow begins the first fishing day of the Far Out Shoot Out.  Remember you can sign up during the week to fish.  Judging by what Roger brought to the dock the fishing should be great this week.  Captain Brant will keep us posted through out the week.  Good luck to all!!
