"Ha ha Rickey!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 12/28/08
 

Tim and Tracy Garrett stopped by this morning with their three kids, ready to head out on their Grady White, the "Bloodline."  Tim entered the sea bass division of the OIFC rodeo, and bought one jig, a Shimano Lucanus.  I couldn't help but think that it was kind of arrogant (only one species and only one jig, you know...) but kept my mouth shut.  Well, Tim just showed back up with a 1.6 pound sea bass, knocking Capt. Rickey Beck squarely into second place.  That should set up a last minute scramble, with only three days left to fish for one of the best eating species to be caught in local waters.  The Garretts also caught two keeper grouper in about 70 feet of water, quite the feat for late December.  Of course, it is in the mid 70s outside and everyone is wearing shorts....  Capt. Rickey can scoff all he wants, global warming is real (and I love it!) and he's no longer the leader in the sea bass division!

"GOOD MORNING AMERICA!" | OIFC 1- 36' | 12/27/08
 

It's foggy here in Paradise.  But the temperature is warm enough to wear a light jacket and there is just a slight breeze out of the north.   The official OIFC wind guage says 6 mph.  Not bad for December 27th.  Maybe there's something to this global warming thing.  Perhaps I should quit mocking it.  Just a thought for the day.  The global warming crowd blames the rise of the sea level on the melting ice caps.  If that's true, doesn't water expand when it's frozen?  So if melting polar ice has any effect, shouldn't the sea level be dropping?  Too much time on my hands.

On to important things, Brant is out blue fin hunting.  He took the OIFC lucky charm little leprechaun so maybe he'll have good luck.  The boat ramp parking lot is filling up so maybe we'll have some inshore reports.  Reminder...the Captain Club's  sale lasts until the 31st., and you have until the 31st. to knock the 1.5 lb. OIFC Rodeo 1st place in the sea bass class off the board.  I'm throwing down the challenge!

"Christmas Recap" | OIFC 1- 36' | 12/25/08
 

Just sitting alone enjoying the peace and quiet after a busy and fun Christmas day with family and friends.  So I thought I'd review the Fishing Reports from earlier this year in order to be able to answer charter booking questions.  During the winter months the South Brunswick area was afire with fishing action.  In shore we were heavy into the trout and red drums using Gulp and DOA's.  The shrimp were still around as they are now.  The inshore bite was hot from St. James to the Little River Swing Bridge.

Off shore, the King bite was strong around the Tower. the grouper and snapper were happening in 80 to 100  ft. and the gulf was hot with wahoo, the tuna bite was on also.  So far this winter seems to he exhibiting the same patterns. 

The OIFC has been exposed to a whole new world with spearfishing taking hold of Amy and Barrett  with the help of the people of Coastal Scuba in North Myrtle Beach.   Jeff Martini, proprietor of Martini's Restaurant in N. Myrtle, who happens to be one of our good friends and loyal customers also is an avid spear fisherman and joins in on the excitement.  Even my Camdyn is getting into the action!  What they see and report in the habitat and actions of our favorite table fish is incredible and enlightening when it comes to sport fishing.

We are all aware of the tightening economy around the country, but with fuel prices dropping we should now be able to afford to go fishing.  Review the past fishing reports and lets go fishin'!

"Happy Holidays" | OIFC 1- 36' | 12/21/08
 

Wow, it's hard to believe Christmas is Thursday.  The weather here is in the 60"s and 70's (I thought I'd rub it in to those living where the winter storms are, that pesky global warming).  The weather reports and live report from the Tower tells us that we'll have to stand by awhile before we try our hand at those monster wahoos, grouper. snapper. and kings that are being caught in our area.  But it allows us to spend time at those family functions without feeling we should be on the water.

Congratulations to those who've landed some big blue fins, Brian Aycock, who must have a horseshoe in his pocket, and Captains David Hook and Ryan Strickland for landing a blue fin this week that cored out at about 500 lbs.

Booking a charter for blue fin fishing, or any other fishing is a great last minute Christmas shopping idea.  Fuel prices are low, the OIFC has some great deals so now is the time to book.  Remember that our Captains' Club points sale goes on 'til December 31st.  You don't have to come here to buy, though we'd love to see you. You can make your purchases by phone (this way you can hear Mrs. Juanita's sweet voice) or online.

The Rodeo goes on until December 31st.  It's going to be a sad day if I win with a 1.5 ib. sea bass!  Though I haven't talked with Brant, it's my hope we can have it again next year.  We may make some changes to make it better and hopefully make it grow.  If you have any suggestions please send them to me at the OIFC or call me there.  After all it's your tournament. Sorry Chris, (emails go through him). 

The Raleigh Boat show is going to be the latter part of January.  It will help folks who don't get to enjoy fishing year round get their juices flowing.  The OIFC will be there with info and products.  You'll also get to meet our staff of celebrities such as Captain Roger, Captain Chris and Mrs. Juanita. (hope that embarrasses them).  Which reminds me, check out You Tube for some video of Brant and other OIFC celebs. fishing.  Chris should win an Oscar as best producer.  Please don't send nominations to the OIFC.  I got in trouble when I was running for admiral.   I'll be holding down the fort here at the OIFC during the Raleigh Show, and I think Captain Brant will be suffering while fishing a tournament in the Keys.  It's tough being him. 

 In case we don't get to see you before Christmas, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and be safe.

"My Story" | OIFC 1- 36' | 12/19/08
 

While the Carolina Cat crew were on the OIFC dock cleaning their bounty from yesterday, Jeff, Camdyn, in her new Grundens. and I set out in the Scout 240 Bay Boat in search of trout.  We headed to the Shallotte Inlet area and started fishing live shrimp under corks.  As soon as Jeff cast out he was hit by a trout.  Candyn assisted in reeling him in.  This went on for about an hour until the tide went slack.  The bite quit and Camdyn lost interest so we headed in.  The bite is good both inshore and off so this would be an excellent time to visit us in Paradise.

"Triple Digit Wahoo!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 12/19/08
 

I first heard about this monster this morning when David McKethen out of Holden Beach stopped by the OIFC to tell me about the nice wahoo he lost at boatside yesterday.  He said his fish weighed about 80-85 pounds but that Patrick Bryant, on the "Twister" had killed one that went over 100 pounds.  Drew Shytle called me a litte bit later to let me know that the fish was 102 pounds.  Several others have said that the fish came on a king mackerel rod while Patrick was grouper fishing and light-lining at the same time.  All I can say is "wow!"  Now that's a fish!  With very inconsistent yellowfin tuna in our area over the past few years, wahoo (and BIG wahoo) have certainly filled the void and then some.  Plus they're here about year round as well.  They just might be the perfect gamefish.  Congrats to Patrick on an awesome catch.

"Yesterdays catch" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 12/19/08
 

Yesterday the weather was nice and Amy, Barrett, Rube, Jamie Millikin and Cameron Sebastian and I all hopped on board the 33 World Cat, Carolina Cat, for an offshore adventure.  We headed toward the Frying Pan Tower and stopped off at the Knuckle buoy to troll for Bluefin Tuna for an hour- some good sign with bait and birds, but no bites.  We then headed to the Tower where we jigged up a livewell full of Cigar Minnows, Grunts and B-liners with plans of feeding them to Kings and Grouper.  The Kings were biting around the Tower and threw out a couple lines, but it was Grouper we had our sights set on.  I headed Southwest and ran across a good mark on my finder.  I turned around and had Rube, Barrett and Jamie drop down some lines to see what was going on.  Rube and Jamie came up with two big Pink Snapper and Barrett caught a 15 pound Scamp Grouper- hmmmmm!  I set the anchor and we commenced to wearing out the Scamp Grouper on the live baits.  The bite was hot for nearly an hour before it started cooling off.  By then, Cameron and Barrett were all suited up in dive gear and they went over with spear guns in hand to investigate.  30 minutes later they came up with a stringer of big Scamps and Hog Snapper.  The seas laid out flat in the afternoon and it was a nice ride home with a box full of fish and a boat full of content fishermen and divers.
Come on down to the beach and visit if you get the chance.  Our charter boats are ready to go at a moments notice and the fish are biting.

"King Bite" | OIFC 1- 36' | 12/18/08
 

I talked with a very accomplished local angler who told me the king bite at the Tower was hot.  He said the ocean/winds were perfect.  As we were at a church preschool Christmas show neither one of us could fish, and today was beautiful.  Some of the guys who rely on commercial hook and line fishing to tie them over in the off season said that kings were selling for $2.50 a pound.  It looks like the weather this weekend is going to be less than perfect as far as boating goes, but come visit and do some last minute guilt shopping.

"In shore vs Blue Fin" | Speckulator - 22' | 12/16/08
 

Two of OIB's premier in shore anglers, Kyle Hughes (Speckulator), Brian Aycock (Double Trouble), along with Brian's younger sister Leigh Anne, ventured to Morehead City today for a try at blue fin fishing.  Their efforts were rewarded with the 87 inch blue fin tuna pictured below.  Bet it put up a bit more fight than a trout.  The trio were fishing aboard the 27 ft Privateer, Wide Spread.

"Let's Go Fishing!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 12/15/08
 

The weather looks AWESOME Weds and Thurs and I'm going fishing!  Weds I think the family and I will probably do some Wahoo fishing and maybe some diving as well- not exactly sure, but we'll be on VHF 11 if you are out.  Thurs looks good too- maybe we'll do some King fishing that day -- I know I will be carrying my Bluefin gear with me both days as they are liable to show up at any time.  Stay tuned- let's go fishing!

"Winter; Time to go Fishing!" | OIFC 1- 36' | 12/13/08
 

It seems almost most of America has forgotten what a great place the beach is during the winter. Getting awfully lonely down here. Not sure what everyone is doing back inland, but here at the beach much fun and entertainment is being missed out on. Just as a reminder to everyone what all is available here at the beach this time of the year;  the best cold water oysters of the year, best served on the beach with a north wind[the island faces south so the north wind is blocked by the land causing tropical conditions at 50 degrees F]; great trout and redfish action; the biggest seabass of the year within 3 miles of shore; the best King fishing of the year at the Tower; some of the best Wahoo fishing of the year in the stream; and of course the Giant Bluefin Tuna fishing is just now starting and will peak late December to early/mid January. So folks, why miss out on all this; come on down to the beach. Weather this week is forecast in the 70's.

 

Brant and I will be giving the Bluefin a shot tomorrow morning. Rode out this afternoon and the waters from Shallotte Inlet toward Lockwood absolutely full of menhaden. Good temperature break just east of the Raritan, so thats where we'll hope to find the Bluefin. Standby for report tomorrow.

"Slow Going" | OIFC 1- 36' | 12/13/08
 

Test?  I don't know what Chris is going to test us on, or what he was writing about in his last post , and I don't know about,you,  but I'm worried and am boning up on reel spooling and knot tying, just in case we have a pop quiz. I did check my spelling on this report in case it's a spelling test.  Just think, I could lose employee of the month. 

However the OIFC Staff hasn't forgotten about our fishing reports.  As far as fishing goes, right now things are slow off shore because the wind won't stop blowing.  It's gusting to 29 at the Tower now.  In shore, Brian Aycock, and who ever he can find to fish with him are tearing the trout up.  Yesterday was his shrimping day and he reported a lot of shrimp are inshore to be had.  His catch was for his fishing buddies and him only.  I don't know of anyone selling shrimp right now.

Captain Roger and his brother, Henry were headed to Morehead yesterday to try to catch a blue fin, but I expect it is too windy.   Several have been reported in our area and a couple have been reported to have been weighed in. We do have HIGH quality ballyhoo in stock.  I must to defer to Roger and Captain Chris for the quality, and they say they are the best we've had in quite sometime.  Roger says our large are as big as most people's jumbo.  Otherwise we are painting boat bottoms and doing general maintenance. 

 We've still got the Captain's Club sale going on as is the Rodeo,   Captain Brant has some excellent deals on fishing schools and charters which would make great Christmas gifts and Juanita Clause is filling orders from our On line Store.  Speaking of Christmas gifts....Brant has two of our rental jest skies for sale.  They were sitting at Hwy. 17 and 904, across from Mcdonalds yesterday.  Captain Barrett also has two of his jet skies for sale.  These were the ones he used last summer to pull the Banana Boat with.  I bought one of the rental skies and have had a blast with it. Brant and Barrett both kept the maintenance up on them and they in great condition. I wasn't asked to put this in the report, but I personally am familiar with the skies.  I don't know the asking price, but call us and we'll connect you with Brant or Barrett.

"OIFC.com King Tournament Recap" | OIFC 1- 36' | 12/11/08
 

There were several motivations behind starting the new OIFC.com King Mackerel Tournament that concluded this past Saturday.  First and foremost our team was looking for an excuse to fish the late fall/early winter Hatteras/Morehead kingfish bite. And if we were going to be fishing anyway, we might as well have a tournament! Over the past 10-15 years we have enjoyed some of the most incredible king mackerel bites imaginable during this time period in this area.  Typically, large schools of large to enormous kingfish show up on temperature breaks and structure from mid November through mid December creating an unmatched setting for catching the biggest kingfish of the year.  Having seen this great fishery for years and feeling that many fishermen have been missing out, we thought hosting a tournament would give fishermen not familiar with the area an opportunity to fish a new area with the comfort and help of other fishing teams.  Another motivation behind this event was to expose our newly developed webstore, which can be located from www.oifc.com, to fishermen hoping to make www.oifc.com a stop on everyone's online shopping.  In addition to bringing our website to the attention of the fishermen, by hosting the event completely online we were able to keep operating costs low, which means only a very small amount of entry fees were needed to cover costs and the rest went back to fishermen in payouts.   So, with a list motivating factors both personal and business and with the encouragement of many many fishermen we created the OIFC.com King Mackerel Tournament. 

Like so often is the case, things don't always work out like you have them planned- at least not exactly.  The tournament achieved the goal of exposing the webstore to the fishing public and we thank each and everyone for checking us out whether you purchased or just shopped.  We are grateful for the opportunity to win your business and we will continue to improve our webstore in an effort to prove our product, price, quality offering. 

The tournament however, did not achieve our expectations on participation with only 12 teams entering the event.  Preceding the tournament an estimated 50 to 70 teams were planning to fish, but when it came time to enter only 12 stepped up.  We have been hearing from teams since and the two explanations for the lack of participation are (a.) bad weather and (b.) teams should have been able to enter anytime throughout the week of fishing.  Addressing (a.) first.  This was a pick 2 days from 8 days event.  The purpose of this format was that surely within an 8 day time frame we would get at least 2 nice days.  The forecast for the first weekend of the event was terrible and perhaps that was enough to deter participation.  But, we did end up with at least 4 very fishable days and 3 great days. Though it started off ugly the format worked in that any team could have had an opportunity to fish in good weather for 2 days.   Addressing (b.). Many teams expressed they would have fished if they could have entered the event any time within the 8 days of competition.  Personally I don't like this concept.  As soon as one team goes fishing the event is on and anyone allowed to enter after having seen how other teams do would be getting an unfair advantage.  We would like to hear thoughts on this topic so we can consider if this tournament occurs again next year.  Email captbrant@oifc.com or captbarrett@oifc.com

On the fishing side of the equation, the bite was outstanding as usual however the size of the fish did not meet expectations.  Usually this time of year you can expect to catch all you want over 30lbs and many in the 40's and possible even 50's or 60lbers.  For whatever reason the fish were where they were supposed to be most of the week, on a temperature change between the Bad Bottoms and the Smell Wreck off Hatteras, but they were mostly in the 20lb range with a very few topping the 30lb mark.  The bite was as advertised just as fast as you could put a bait in the water, but a little disappointing in the size of the fish.  As luck would have it, on the Monday after the last day of the tournament the big fish showed up off Hatteras exactly where most of the teams had fished and the locals were bailing 30's and 40's.  That was supposed to happen in the tournament.  Apparently the fish missed the memo.

Tournament Results and Payouts

1st Overall 53.35lbs, 1st Agg TWT 53.35lbs, 2nd Big Fish TWT 31.75- Team OIFC $3420
2nd Overall 52.25lbs, 1st Big Fish TWT 35.0, 2nd Agg TWT 52.25 - Big Bad Wolf $2820
3rd Overall 44.9lbs, 3rd Agg TWT 44.9lbs- Team Bobcat $660
3rd Big Fish TWT 30.5lbs- Dig It $480

Congratulations to all the winners and all that fished this inaugural event. 

Though Team OIFC ended up on top this time, it was not exactly an easy or expected path that got us there.  Our day one fish 31.75 fish came on the first Saturday of the tournament when nobody else elected to fish.  The day started off great.  We had bait, we were on an epic bite off Hatteras and the weather was decent.  Everything remained the same all day except the weather.  We felt like Forest Gump when the rain came.  It was relentless and the wind and seas got nasty as well, which made for a long ride home.  Day one in the books.  A soggy Team OIFC leads with 31.75lbs.  Throughout the week most other teams fished on Wednesday and Thursday in near perfect conditions and most experienced a good bite.  We decided to wait and fish the final day of the event on Saturday.  Again, we lucked out with perfect weather and bait.  However this is where our luck was halted for the morning.  On our way north from Morehead we were running up the Core Sound and out Drum Inlet when we made a wrong turn and ended up on a sandbar.  You know it's bad when the birds are standing in water and not floating.  When you run on the edge so often at some point it is going to bite you and this time were bit.  We were aground at 7:04am.  For those who know Core Sound and Drum you know that if you make the slightest of wrong turns you're on the hill.  There we sat and there we stayed.  After several hours of nursing our baits, hoping that when the tide came in we would get off and go fishing, we eventually realized that unlike home waters the tidal swing in that area is only 1ft.  That is when panic set in.  We had to figure a way out.  We tried every direction and every method and had all but given up hope of getting out on our own.  It was time to turn this into a salvage mission.  We dumped our bait and wells trying to make the boat lighter so it would float higher but this didn't work.  When we hit, we made it across a very shallow bar and then were floating a section of water about 3' deep, 50' long and 10' wide.  All other sides were surrounded by inches of water.  The bar we had to get across was about 30 yards in width.  At 1:30pm we decided to either make things worse or better knowing the next step was to call the towing companies.  The stretch of deeper water was not long enough to get up on a plane without making an adjustment.  We thought if we could get on plane we could skip the bar.  So, we flooded the front of the boat (all boxes) with water and emptied everything out of the stern.  This put all of our weight up front, which would hopefully help us get up quicker in the small space by lifting our stern.  The throttles go in the corner and she's up! We make two thirds of the way across the bar before bumping, but she makes it.  At last!  At this point we feel like we already have a victory nevermind the tournament.  It is 1:38pm now.  Instead of doing the smart thing and turning around for home with our tails tucked, we forge ahead and make our way out of Drum.  With weigh-in at 5pm we now had 3 hours to make bait, run 55miles north to where the fish were, catch a fish and make it to the scales.  Impossible?  Not probable.  Just outside of Drum we see the ganets diving and take a shot in the dark.  We drop our gill net and make few throws with the cast net.  We catch 4 flounder bait size pogies in the cast net and 1 turbo pogy in the gill net.  With only 1 decent bait we make the call to head north.  50 miles later we find the charter fleet on a temp change and bait around the Bad Bottoms.  Team Bobcat is already there and catching fish.  We pitch our 1 good bait behind the boat and before it is set in the rod holder we're on.  The 21.60lber is put in the bag with time to spare.  We catch a few more smaller fish on the peanut pogies and head for the scales.  What a day!  There are highs and there are lows, but there is never a dull moment!

Again, we appreciate all those that fished and all those that followed this new event. Any input regarding the future of this event, or the webstore is much appreciated.  Just email captbrant@oifc.com or captbarrett@oifc.com with thoughts.

Until the next adventure!

"Rodeo" | Speckulator - 22' | 12/09/08
 

Just a short note.  Captain Kyle (Speckulator) knocked his daddy off the Rodeo leader board with a 6.6 lb. trout.   Congratulations to Kyle, but  that's a terrible thing to do to your daddy. 

I also read an article where shrimpers are catching huge Tiger Shrimp off of Charleston.  I think these shrimp grow close to a foot long and will bite the mess out of you but taste good.  I read the article in the Sun News.  Google them up.

"Bottomfish galore" | OIFC 1- 36' | 12/08/08
 

William Parker called me early Saturday morning and asked where he and Duane should go bottomfishing that day.  I wasn't sure where I was, as the phone woke me up, and I think I gave him numbers for somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico.  I must have been dreaming about warmer weather.  Good thing he didn't listen!  They left in Duane's Key West and showed up later that afternoon with this mess of bottomfish.  William said the fish came from near the Gary Ennis.  Not bad for a short winter's day of bottomfishing!  I guess that proves it--get deeper than 80 feet and the bottomfish are there for the taking.  Of course, you don't have to even go that far.  I have heard reports that the Sherman is covered in big knot-head bass.  The OIFC sea bass slot in the rodeo is up for grabs!  Go get 'em!!!

1)  Team OIFC  53+ pound aggregate weight

2)  Big Bad Wolf  52+ pound aggregate weight

3)  Bobcat 44+ pound aggregate weight
