"Birthday Boy" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/23/08
 

Captain Roger's birthday was Saturday and he didn't even tell us.  I'm hurt! No one would have messed with him....not us.  But today turned out to be a bitter sweet birthday present.  He and I had a charter with a fun group of guys who are all neighbors in Sanford.  Somehow an angler /friend named Buck from Supply was thrown in the mix.

We all met at the OIFC dressed in our best warm foul weather gear. Fortunately for us it wasn't as cold as we expected.  We then went about 10 miles out and jigged some bait.  We put fishing lines in a while later, in 80 ft of water.  As soon as the first line struck the bottom a 15 lb gag grouper hit it.  We fished there for a while with mostly AJ's biting.

The next stop was in @100 feet of water with a temp. of 72 degrees.  Again it was mostly sea bass and AJ's.  That was pretty much the story for the rest of the day...grouper, AJ's sea bass and pink snapper. Although Buck quickly became the Shark Master after hooking up with 3 monster sized Sand Tigers.   Roger estimated them to be in the 300 lb. range.  They were all released quickly.

The fishing was action packed and non stop.  The ocean and weather was even better.  It was cool, but that helped  keep the guys from overheating when they were reeling in what felt like a Volkswagen from about 100 feet below.

"Speck bite in full effect" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/23/08
 

It's official, the specks are here and hungry.  Today was a little warmer than yesterday and Austin Aycock, Brian Aycock, and Jeff Beck took full advantage on the Hook Em Up Scout.  The crew were using live shrimp that they caught themselves.  A good precursor to next weekends inshore tournament, hosted right here at the OIFC.

"SKA Championship update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/23/08
 

In the world of King Mackerel fishing, we often question the the logic of trying to outsmart a critter that doesn't have a measurable brain. And sure enough, if you get lucky enough to figure that one out, then you get smacked from trying to figure out the proper strategy to use in the modified tourney format in fishing the SKA Championship. Due to the adverse weather, the SKA came up with a very creative solution to allow teams to fish Friday or Saturday and weigh 2 fish, but if they weighed no fish on Friday, they could still weigh 2 fish Saturday. So being  hard core Carolina fishermen, of course Brant/Barrett weren't going to miss the chance to basically have a free pass for Friday. So despite 30+ winds they went at it. The problem was they caught a medium fish[32 pounds], and so the delimina of whether to weigh it or not, since they still had the option of weighing 2 fish Saturday. They rode aound in the channel about an hour mulling that one over, and based upon the anticipated bad weather for Saturday, they decided to weigh their 32. That put them in 8th place.   Day 2, Saturday started with the same 20-25kt winds, so their strategy was looking good, however as the day progressed, the winds layed, and in the words of kingfishing legend, Wayne "Kingfish" Hill, "if they don't chew today, they'll chew tomorrow". And thus it was as an all out bite developed around the Horseshoe Rigs. Brant/Barrett weighed a 47, had a 43 and a 41, and if they had made the decision not to have weighed the 32 on Friday, they would have finished 2nd to Fish Fever and their 57 and 38. As it was they finished a very respectable 6th, but damn! the bad luck on strategy. That's racing.

So, now on to the next shot at 50lb Kings; don't forget the OIFC.com Hatteras King tourney. You can fish 2 out of 8 days, starting Saturday after Thanksgiving. Weighin locations are at Hatteras and Morehead. Go to www.oifc.com for info.

"Trout Time" | Speckulator - 22' | 11/22/08
 

Two great friends of the OIFC, Scott Allen and his son Austin joined Captain Kyle on the Speckulator for a day of trout fishing . Captain Kyle started this chilly day out with a dozen OIFC premium mud minnows, whether they caught their fish on them or some other bait is a mystery.  With the tournament this weekend I operated on the "ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies" premise, so I haven't any details on the day's experience.  All I know is this father son duo brought a bunch of nice trout back to the OIFC dock, including the 4.5 pounder in the picture.

"A pickle in Biloxi" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/22/08
 

Just got word from our boys at SKA nationals in Biloxi, Mississippi.  Capt. Brant and Capt. Barrett reported that the hottest kingfish bite of all time took place in less than comfortable conditons today.  Brant said that the bite was so good he managed to catch a 25 pounder on a pickle!  The good news is that they have to upper 40 pounders on ice right now, the bad news is that they are only able to weigh one of them.  Hopefully the bigger one will go nicely with the 32 pounder they weighed yesterday.  Kudos to those who went ahead and toughed it out there today--that's what it's all about.

"Biloxi Report" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/22/08
 

Report from SKA King Championship in Biloxi.
As is typical, the weather before the tourney was perfect and everyone enjoyed 2 great days of prefishing. The fish were dialed in around the Exxon Rig, so Team OIFC went on a mission of trying to find out where they weren't in hopes of finding a body of fish that everyone else didn't know about. We succeeded in finding out where they weren't; fished day one in the West Delta with perfect conditions, perfect water color, surface bait everywhere, and no Kings. We stayed with Bill and Mike Butler at their great fishermans facility in Venice. They've done a great job putting Venice Marine back together after the storms and if you ever want to go on a fishing adventure you should come to Venice. You can catch anything from large mouth bass to blue marlin. It's an amazing fishery and the Butlers are great host.
 
Day 2 shifted to the east side, same strategy, same results. So, game plan tourney morning is to go where they're at, which is where everyone else will be. During night major cold front came thru. Early morning Friday, wind blowing 25, gusting to 30[thats from buoys 20 miles out, fish are 70 miles out]. My decision was to respect the weathered condition of my body, so I gave Brant/Barrett my best Rick Hendricks speech and told them to "go get em boys". All during the day boats were coming back in early with horror stories of broken windshields, damaged curtains/tee tops/consoles/ect. Everyone said it was terrible, but to my knowledge, noone got hurt. As always there are a few who somehow tuff it out, and at weighin, there were approx a dozen fish weighed, including a 44,43,3 38's, a 34, and 2 32's. Brant and Barret came thru with a 32 and were in 8th place. Randal Edens, good fishing friend from the Topsail area was leading the 23 under group with the 43, caught right beside Brant/Barrett.
 
Day 2, early, wind report 20, gusting to 25. Wind has moved more to east, sea conditions are 1 foot higher than yesterday at the buoy reporting station 20 miles out. Gave Brant/Barrett repeat of yesterdays speech and sent them out. Seeing boats returning early just like yesterday so conditions are terrible again. Best of luck to everyone fighting it out. Rube

"Global Warming????" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/22/08
 

President elect Obama hasn't even taken office and he's already resolved the global warming crises here in Paradise.  Al Gore should be ecstatic!!!!!  I don't know where you are, but it's freezing here.  But...that ought to make the trout bite take off.  Kyle has a trip this morning so I hope we'll find out.  Jeff is fishing Sunday and if I don't go out with Roger I'll fish with him and file a report. I learned that line from Clark Kent.  As I said Roger has a charter Sunday, we're going to target Kings and possible grouper.

It appears the weatherman missed the wind reports for today because it's calm here.  The beach looked flat, the horizon had some camel backs, but should settle down.

Captain Brant, Captain Barrett and Rube fished in their tournament yesterday, maybe we'll hear some good news from them.  Captain Amy is in Florida scuba diving with the crew from Coastal Scuba in N. Myrtle Beach.  We hope she has a good time and will have some great stories to tell.  Meanwhile, back at the ranch, us commoners are holding down the fort and freezing!

Thanksgiving is upon us with most people having a long weekend.  Enjoy your day with your family, then beg out and come wet a hook!

"Thanksgiving Inshore Classic Update" | Speckulator - 22' | 11/17/08
 

Well guys, fall is officially here, but the way the weather looks fot this week, it may feel more like winter.  But the cold air temperatures should have the opposite effect on the inshore fishing, especially the trout and drum fishing...things should be HOT!  The cold weather will casue the fish to "bunch up" in all the normal fall spots, just in time for the Thanksgiving Inshore Classic, the weekend after Thanksgiving.  See the tournaments page for more details...hope to see all of you there!

"Heading to Biloxi" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/17/08
 

Rube, Barrett and I are heading to Biloxi, MS to fish in the annual SKA national championship event.  The tournament is next weekend and we are always excited about the prospect of experiencing some of the best king mackerel fishing in the country.  Fishing Biloxi is always an experience, but like any fishing, its particularly fun when you get on the bite.  I remember a few years ago we posted a 2 fish aggregate of 97 pounds-- a 47 on day 1 and 50 and day 2 and only finished 15th!  The bite was one of the best I've ever seen and even though we didn't finish high, just being a part of it and being where we needed to be was well worth it.  Last year was an example of how we were out to lunch.  The body of fish was much smaller and only a handful of boats found them and we did not and thus the disappointment of not being where we needed to be.  So, we leave with a hope and vision.  Stay tuned for the report.

"Archives" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/15/08
 

It's late and Grouper,(my bulldog)  and I are up and enjoying the peace and quite. I decided to "bone" up on what's biting and where this time of year.  I was excited to read last year's reports about our exciting fishing. It was about this time when the Trout bite turned on for the in shore guys.  Off shore got real fired up with the Wahoo bite in the 100/400 area.  Also hitting were the black fin. grouper, snapper and kings, and the most exciting was the arrival of the giant Blue Fin Tuna.  Get yourself in the mood for fun winter fishing by reviewing our Fishing Report Archive Section

"A Bunch of Nothin'" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/15/08
 

I know you don't want to hear about me cleaning house or being sentenced to going to the mall, but what  I can report is generally speaking, nothing much is  happening, either the wind is blowing, or it's raining or like yesterday the fog is so thick you have to cut it with a knife.   However there are a few things I've scraped up to pass on.

Blue fin tuna time is quickly coming upon us.  Captain Roger says that they have been spotted north of us and he figures they ought to be showing up in about a week.  We have OIFC Custom blue fin set ups in the store.  We also have a charter spacial for that as well as king mackerel/grouper, tuna, dolphin and wahoo trips.  Speaking of grouper, there are new regulations concerning grouper coming into effect the first of the year.  You should make yourself aware.

Our Captains' Club Sale begins today.  You don't have to come to the store to shop, just contact Mrs. Juanita, our On-Line Store guru. and shop on line.  As I buy all my gas here I've got a ton of points and already have my eye on some Calcutta and Pelagic stuff!

Our tourist season is slowing down, just like everyone in this business, so I'll be working less.  But that's a good thing because I can fish more and go out on our charters to get better reports, pictures and hone my skills.

For us in shore anglers the bait ( peanut pogies and mullet) is holding strong in Tubbs Inlet.  The shrimp are also thick in the waterway if you can work your way around the side netters.  Jeff, Roger and I loaded up yesterday and stashed them in Bryan Aycock's and Jeff's bait pen.  They've got an excellent  set up and if I get permission I'll be glad to share how to make one with you.  Don't winterize your boat.  FISH!!  I believe we caught more fish last winter than we did this summer.

Finally, happy birthday to our favorite blondes, Caroline and Camdyn!  Their parties are this weekend. 

 Not a bad report for nothing to say.  Maybe I should run for office in 2012.

"Take A Kid Fishing" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/11/08
 

Today Capt. Roger, Capt. Amy and myself loaded the Carolina Cat up with a bunch of kids and we took them fishing.  One of the children was 10 year old Heather Cartland who won the "Capt. Brant Best Fishing Story" contest held through the Brunswick Beacon.  Along with Heather was a group of my wife Amy's Sunday school class- 7 kids from 12 to 16 years old -- it was quite the crew and most had never been on the ocean.  We headed out some 3 miles and anchored up over some hard bottom where the kids had a blast catching Sea Bass, Bluefish, Gray Trout, Sharks and to top it all off, they landed a double header of 40 inch Red Drum!  People often ask me what type of fishing I like to do best?  The answer is I like doing any fishing where the fish bite and fishermen truly appreciate and enjoy the experience.  Such was the case this AM. 

 L-R: Summer Phelps, Cody Thorpe, Dalton Hernandez, Alexis Phelps, Heather Cartland (bottom), Tyler Evans, Chad Milligan, Austin Rhodes – this group of outstanding young fishermen and fisherwomen are all members of the United Vision Pentecostal Church with the addition of Heather Cartland who was the winner of the Capt. Brant Best Fishing Story contest. The children had a great day catching tons of Sea Bass, Bluefish, Grey Trout, Sharks and topped of their catch with a double header of citation size Red Drum, pictured.

"Trout King" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/10/08
 

Jeff and I were making our rounds this afternoon.  Our first stop was Gordens Net Shop on Bricklanding Rd. to order Camdyn a set of kid's Grundens.  This is a cool place to check out even if you're not into netting and the folks there are as nice as can be.

After that we cruised by Captain Steve Previtte's (U Hook'em) house.  We caught Steve in the middle of bagging trout he'd just finished cleaning.  Knowing I write the fishing report and had just caught him red handed, he just kind of gave me his sheepish grin.  After swearing not to give specifics, he told me he'd caught them and some red drum using live shrimp while fishing with his son Saturday in the Lockwood Folly River.  I've included a couple of clandestine pictures I took.  They're pretty dark so I hope you can see all the trout.

Remember Capt. Kyle's Thanksgiving Inshore Tournament which is coming up at the OIFC on November 28-29 and that the trout are around.

"Movin' off shore" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/10/08
 

Captain Roger had a king fish charter Sunday with Ken Aadsen (Calabash transplant), Joel  (Anacortes, Washington state) and Tele (Sitka, Alaska).  Joel and Tele were visiting with Ken and decided they'd like to experience our fishing.  They are both commercial fishermen (fishing people as one is a lad) in Alaska and fish a boat Ken built.  They've got some great stories and are going to send me some photos of some of their fish which I'll post.

Roger had to take them 24 miles out before he found warm enough water to really get into the kings.  He was pretty amazed about how the warm water had moved.  The ocean was still swelly after Saturday's blow but was fishable.  They scored several kings off dead cigar minnows and threw in a few good tasting sea bass for good measure.  Someone in the Rodeo needs to catch a sea bass because no one is on the leader board yet.  As soon as I can make an off shore trip I'm going to try it. 

 Finally I tried to recover Roger's cell phone from where he dropped in the water, but with no luck.  I forgot that Captain Amy and Captain Barrett just got their diver's certification and could have done a recovery dive.

"Time to go catching" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/09/08
 

I know with the world depression going on, it's hard to think about good things, but folks, you need to think fishing right now. This is the time of the year the kings school up in tight packs where you can put the boat in neutral and free line baits to skyrocketing kings as fast as you can catch them. The cooling water will push them either to the jungle/horeshoe/27 mile rocks areas and they will be feeding on schools of cigars or chub mackerel. You can jig live baits or use dead cigars.

In these same waters you will find our late fall grouper bite is in full force. Jig up a grunt or any small fish, drop him down, and hang on. The grouper will be in this water depth for next several weeks.

Next on the fishing agenda is our late fall/winter JUMBO Seabass bite which will start soon and be at all the close in rocks. This is the time of the year we catch the biggest seabass[up to 4 pounds], and everyone knows how they eat, the best of the best.

After Thanksgiving, it's Bluefin Tuna time, and hopefully the Bluefins will return to our waters like we had them 2 years ago. Look for them to be along the Frying Pan shoals, feeding on pogies. Look for the ganents and you've likely found the Bluefin. Anybody needing any help on the how to of Bluefins, email Brant or Barrett at Capt Brant[or Capt Barrett] @oifc.com.

Also, any one going to the SKA National King Mackerel Championship in Biloxi, Mississippi that needs any info, contact Brant/Barrett. Team OIFC will be attending along with many other NC teams, so pull for us NC fishermen to bring the championship trophey back to Carolina.

Fuel prices are back down to reasonable levels, the fish are biting, oysters are in, still some spots around.....get down to the coast and help us enjoy this great time of the year!

"Sunday a.m." | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/09/08
 

Be sure to check the Tournament Section.  Captain Kyle has his Tournament coming up the latter part of this month.  Also there have been no sea bass weighed in in the OIFC Rodeo.  I'm sure with "grouper season" in full swing some decent sea bass ought to be caught.

The sun is out, there is no wind so the seas should be settling down making for a perfect fishing day no matter whether you decide to go in or off shore.  Roger is out on the Carolina Cat.  Hopefully I'll hear from him so I can post a report, but since he dropped his cell phone in the drink I may not.  I'll update this report if anything comes in.

"A New World" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/08/08
 

Now the fish are really in trouble.  We often encounter the problem when fishing that we believe the fish are around but they're just not biting.  Yesterday we figured out how to combat this problem.  After years of procrastination a few weeks ago Amy, Stephanie and I began the process of becoming certified scuba divers.  Between fear of ear problems, sharks and a number of other excuses we had never pursued scuba until this fall.  In summer I watched shark week on tv and talked myself into overcoming my shark fear.  Then, in September I received clearance from a ENT doctor that my ears were good to go for diving.  There were no more excuses.  We decided to give it a try and put our diving future in the hands of Coastal Scuba in North Myrtle Beach and diving expert Cameron Sebastian.  Cameron and his team at Coastal Scuba took us through the classes and spent time with us in the pool to make sure we were ready for the open water.  We then did 4 dives under their supervision at the Sherman wreck and the Barges to earn our certification.  Yesterday, our skills were officially put to the test as Cameron accompanied Amy and I on our first offshore diving adventure from our boat the OIFC World Cat.  It was a decent weather day with the morning starting off a little bumpy for the ride out but by afternoon it was flat.  Divers dive for many reasons, but my interest is in checking out what we've been fishing over for so many years, and of course spear fishing.  Knowing the grouper were hanging in 70-80 feet of water lately we headed off to a series of ledges in 80 feet.  We dropped anchor and began the process of suiting.  Needless to say nerves were present.  We were about to jump in the water in the middle of the ocean where I have seen so many things that I don't want to be in the water with.  Thankfully Cameron was there to keep us focused on the mission at hand.  On this dive Amy and I would stay right behind Cameron and just check things out while Cameron led the way with his speargun.  We got into the water and made our way to the anchor line where we followed Cameron to the bottom.  The water was very clear for the first 30 feet and then we hit a thermocline and the water dirtied up to about 15 feet visibility.  Once we hit the bottom we began exploring the ocean floor.  It consisted of rolling sand like a desert with starfish and sand dollars everywhere.  Wouldn't you know it, the first thing we see is a shark.  Fortunately it was just a dog shark and I was able to restart my breathing and continue the dive.  The first 70% of the dive we were off in the desert and then finally we found the ledge.  This is where the life was at.  The fish definitely key in on the structure.  As soon as we saw the ledge two big grouper appeared, and Cameron took a shot.  This part was really awesome.  He shot the grouper and connected then threw his gun back behind him which caught me directly in the mask.  I was seeing stars but refocused and watched Cameron in hand to hand combat with a 17lb grouper.  He had him in a headlock and then Cameron reversed the hold and pinned the fish to his belly and got him on the stringer.  This new concept of "getting fish" opened my eyes to a new world.  At this point it was time to ascend from our first dive.  Back on the boat Amy and I were like kids playing 20 questions with Cameron.  We were talking a million miles an hour absolutely overcome excitement in what we had just experienced.  The next dive went much smoother.  We moved over to the Atlantic ledge and this time we dropped right in on the ledge.  The ledge had about 4 feet of relief and much like before the fish were hovering around the structure.  Cameron got two more nice grouper and then it was my turn.  I had my speargun ready to go and was leading the way.  My air was starting to get low so time was limited.  Just as I was about to turn back I spotted two grouper one of which was big over 20lbs.  I chased him for about 50 feet realizing it was time to shoot or give up, I took a difficult shot with the fish facing away from me and just missed behind the tail.  Still, it was an adrenaline rush like no other I've had.  Although I didn't get a grouper Amy and I were extatic with our first day of diving and can't wait to go again.  We dropped Cameron on another spot and he returned with yet more grouper.  He is a deadeye with his spear gun.  We returned to the dock with a box full of grouper, a new perspective on fishing and a newfound excitement for a new activity.  Look out fish.  Now there's no escaping.  Anyone interested in learning scuba or if you are already certified and are looking to go with someone experienced should definitely contact Cameron at Coastal Scuba in North Myrtle Beach

"Saturday Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/08/08
 

Right now the weather is beautiful.  The radar shows a band of rain will pass through here @10 am or so.  Fishing off shore isn't recommended today due to the wind.  However it's supposed to settle by tomorrow. Roger has a trip  Sunday and I'll try to give a real time report.

On the Rodeo scene Brian Richard raised the bar in the Gag Grouper division.  He weighed in an 18.90 yesterday.  This indicates that now is a good time to be grouper fishing.  If I get any further scoop during the day I'll update this report.

After getting off work I went in shore fishing with Jeff, Courtney and Camdyn on the Scout 240.  Armed with live shrimp from Jeff and Brian Aycock's secrete stash we set out to some usual spots for trout fishing.  They were all packed with boats so we decided to go WAY back up the Shallotte River.  Rather than catching trout we were surprised by red fish.  We started catching them as soon as our bait hit the water.   They were all undersized but were fun non the less and all were released healthy.  After a while the bite stopped, probably due to us scaring them off.  The wind picked up, Camdyn woke up and the sun started setting, so we headed for the barn.  You can't do this just anywhere.

"Kings For A Day" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/07/08
 

Today was picture perfect in Paradise.  There were a lot of people taking advantage, gassing up their boats, buying bait and taking off to go fishing.  Even Doppler and Mac were cooling out as you can tell by their picture.

Chris Dew had a half day charter on the It Works, but slipped in without me talking to him.  Captain Amy and Captain Barrett went scuba diving at some of our fishing locations.  Amy said they saw grouper and of course sharks.  Barrett took his camera so perhaps he'll post some stuff.

Meanwhile, Captain Roger chartered the World Cat with a group from Charlotte made up of Bruce Cole, Chris Mauth, Chip Crumpler, and Matthew Wilson.  I would have guessed them to be from Tennessee because most of the had on orange hats with a big T.  Maybe they were kin to Bill Dance....They  started by jigging bait about 3 miles off shore (wonder where that was?).  Then they went to the 27 mile rock with the intentions of Grouper fishing.  While bottom fishing they kept seeing kings skying all over the place.  After catching a couple of grouper, they couldn't stand it any more. The put out some blue fish and frozen cigar minnows and it was on!  Today was blue fish day apparently, because the kings tore the blues up and ignored the cigar minnows.

The weather forecast for tomorrow is showers in the morning and wind picking up in the afternoon, but that's always subject to change.  Come on down and enjoy a relaxed time with us.  As you can tell by my last reports the fishing business is picking up.
