"Looking Ahead" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/22/09
 

Captains Brant, Barrett and Rube are not even back at Ocean Isle and the congratulations are still pouring in, but there is little time to sit back and savor the victory.  Bluefin Tuna season is knocking on the door!  Mike Marsh has an excellent article in the November/December issue of Sport Fishing Magazine on the five top spots for Mid-Atlantic Winter Bluefin.

In the article he points out the Cape Fear Region, in particular the OIFC as the place to go.  He also speaks of Captain Brant as the go to person for Bluefin fishing.  I'll not disclose the exact contents of the story as I don't want to ruin Mike's excellent article.  

Suffice it to say, the OIFC IS the place to come for Bluefin Charters, equipment and information.  Ocean Isle Beach also is a beautiful place stay with excellent accommodations.  It is close enough to Myrtle Beach and Wilmington for you and your family to enjoy all they have to offer.

"Slooooow" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/19/09
 

The winds and rain have not been cooperative and actually slowed everything down in our area including fishing. That said, it makes it tough to write fishing reports.  We need for ya'll to get out, catch some fish and give us something to report.

Your failure to fish will result in us turning the fishing report into an advertisement for the Captains Club Sale, bluefin gear, fishing tackle, marine supplies, sweatshirts........see it's already happening!  Let's watch the weather together and see if we can get out this weekend.  Jeff and I may try Friday afternoon..hope we catch something!

"Biloxi" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/17/09
 

Robbie Dial is in Biloxi prefishing and reports boat owner David Braswell  (The Getting Jiggy) caught a very large blue marlin, which was David's first blue marlin, as well as several kings.  He's attempted to email pictures, with only these two making it through.  Compare them to the pictures from Hatteras after Ida.

"Atlantic Ledge" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/16/09
 

I just read that Captain Barrett said the Kings should begin biting.  He was right!  Captain Jeff B (Do Work/OIFC) and 1st Mate Jay Utley went to the Ledge and got into the kings this morning.  Jeff reported that other boats around him were also catching several.  Check out the picture of the 30.50 lb'r they landed!   Then for some bazaar reason they just shut down.  He moved a couple of times but couldn't  find them again.  As you can tell by the pictures of the porpoises the water has really cleared up.  The water temperature was high 60's to 70 degrees.  They didn't attempt to find bait so they used frozen cigar minnows.

"Nationals Bound" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/16/09
 

Boats on the trailer and bags are packed.  5:00am departure for Biloxi tomorrow.  Team OIFC is making a return trip to where the infamous "pickle incident" occured last year.  If you haven't seen go to www.youtube.com and search OIFC pickle.  Hopefully the bite will be at least a fraction of what we saw last year.  We'll keep the OIFC report updated from the road with information from this year's SKA National Championship. 

While we're gone the weather is supposed to be great so I expect the fishing to turn on by the late part of the week.  King Mackerel will be in 80-100ft, grouper should be in 85 to 110 ft and the wahoo are likely chewing on the break.  November is one of the best months to fish our area so don't miss out on this weather window.

Lastly, don't forget about the Traveling Fisherman trip we're planning to Panama.  We need to have our list of fishermen together by December 1st.  If you're interested be sure to call or email me at captbarrett@oifc.com.  Call 910-575-3474.

"P M Update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/15/09
 

Captain Jeff Beck (DO Work/OIFC) and 1st Mate Jay Utley just returned to port from a day long bottom fishing trip.  They fished squid and frozen cigar minnows in 90-95 ft of water.  The crew landed "an assortment of bottom fish", but only a few were of legal size so were put back.  Jeff said he had to go to 90 feet to find temperatures in the 66-67 degree range.  He stated the water was still murky from the winds and rain.  Several boats were out with him king fishing and none were reported caught.  Jeff and some other boats will go out again Monday..Hopefully we'll have some good news.

Remember the Captains Club...we've got some good stuff!

"News and such" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/15/09
 

**Team OIFC consisting of Barrett, Rube and myself have defended our title as champions of the annual OIFC.com KMT, hosted out of Morehead City and Hatteras.  Our first day of fishing we weighed a 46.95 and our second day we weighed a 50.05 for a 97 pound aggregate, followed very closely by Release who weighed a 43.05 and 53.9 for a 96.95 pound total- now that's close!  The Release team did get the satisfaction of big fish as they weighed a 53.9.  We look forward to hosting this event next year and hope that this year's catches of monster Kings will spur more fishermen to participate in this awesome fishery.

** Capt. Kyle's Inshore Classic is coming up Thanksgiving weekend.  If you are in town and need something to do on Saturday and you like to Trout fish, you really should enter.  The fishing will be VERY good and the entry is only $100.  Why not enter, if you're fishing anyway, might as well add a little excitement- CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS.

**Team OIFC and many other local teams are heading to Biloxi, MS to fish in the SKA's National Championship tournament, which takes place next weekend.  The format is the same as our OIFC.com tournament we just hosted which has each team weigh their largest King over 2 days of fishing and the highest combined weight wins.  Every year Carolina fishermen do very well in this event and many local fishermen have either won or placed very well.  I'll post happenings or shoot some pictures while we're fishing, so stay tuned for live updates.

**The Capt. Club Sale is now on.  Visit the OIFC and redeem your points you've earned through 2009 to buy product at 50% off.  This is a GREAT way to buy your Christmas gifts for family and friends; and they won't even know what an awesome deal you got on the gift.  Besides, who doesn't want an OIFC or GMAC sweatshirt, hat, visor, T...... ???

**Bluefin fever is all ready starting to kick in.  We've had several guys all ready drop their reels off for us to spool and put top shots on to get them ready.  It is still a bit early, but when the first report comes in, you want to be ready.  We have it all from A to Z including the experience and knowledge to help you.  Come see us for your Bluefin gear.  CLICK HERE to shop on-line for Bluefin gear.

**Thanksgiving is just around the corner and many of you spend the holiday at the coast.  The inshore fishing for Speckled Trout is incredibly good during this time, which is why its a great idea to fish in Capt. Kyles Inshore Classic, hosted Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving from the OIFC.  If the weather permits and you want to get offshore, look for good King Mackerel fishing near the Frying Pan Tower or straight off in 80-90 feet of water.

"High Tides" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/15/09
 

OIB is experiencing exceptionally high tides.  I've seen a couple of places where the water is over the walls.  A customer told me that his wake on the ICW was pushing water over some walls.  If you have a concern and would like your property checked, I'll be at the OIFC until noon and will be happy to check out your property.  Call me at the OIFC 910-575-3474.  If it is afternoon still call the OIFC.  Robert will be working and ask him to call me and I'll check your property.

"Last Day for OIFC.com KMT Sign Up" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/13/09
 

Well as it turns out our 9 day tournament probably could have been held over one weekend.  The weather this week has not been favorable and from Morehead to Hatteras this weekend it could remain a little sloppy.  It is supposed to be improving but further north will take longer to settle.  If anyone decides to brave the conditions this weekend and fish the OIFC.com KMT, registration will remain open until 11:59pm tonight.  I'm sure the fish are right where we left them and I bet they're hungry!  The last official fish day for the tournament is Sunday.  We'll post results when the event is concluded.

"Bluefin Weather" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/12/09
 

The weather here is RAW.  Just the kind that gets one thinking about bluefin tuna fishing.  Captain Brant has a section set aside with top of the line bluefin gear.  I just bought anOIFC Custom Bluefin Combo.  I feel like I just bought the winning lottery ticket.  Also check out our Web Store for more info.  Most will remember the season we had last year.

Not to get ahead of ourselves, the king season is not over yet.  The store has a "cheat sheet" out along with a display of tackle Brant recommends for those headed to Bollix...this also applies to our waters.

Finally word is that trigger fish were being caught in 80', keeper sea bass and kings were being caught at the Tower this weekend.  A customer bought several Roscoe Jigs today because of the number of fish he and his friends caught with them this weekend.  I've got my eye on an OIFC Custom Offshore Spinning Jig Combo.  Hopefully things will calm down shortly and we can get back after them!

"Come Aboard...Panama 2010" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/12/09
 

I have been periodically posting over the last few months about the Traveling Fisherman program and the next trip to Panama in March of this coming year.  The trip is scheduled for March 14th-19th, 2010 and will consist of 4 full days fishing and 5 nights at the Paradise Fishing Lodge.  For details on the trip check back through earlier fishing reports or email captbarrett@oifc.com.  We are hoping to fill this trip with a group of fishermen and fisherwomen with the common background of being friends of the OIFC.  The trip can accomodate up to 15.  The deadline to keep this an all OIFC trip is December 1st which is just a few weeks away.  So, if you have interest in coming aboard for this incredible fishing excursion I need to hear from you immediately.  Deposits are not due until January 1 but I need to get a list going for those interested.  After December 1st if we don't fill the spaces, the trip will be opened to the public by the lodge operator.  Once again, if heading south to Panama in March to chase billfish, tuna, and other glamour species is on your agenda contact me directly to join the team.  Email captbarrett@oifc.com or call 910-575-3474.

"Rainy Day Report" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/11/09
 

Needless to say nobody is fishing the OIFC.com KMT today.  I don't believe there will be any fishing until the weekend according to the weather forecast.  Right now it's raining sideways and when the rain quits the wind is not, at least until Saturday.  This is good though.  We need a break after last weekends adventure.  My arms and back are still sore from doing battle with all the monster kingfish. 

Today is a good day to think about the upcoming winter months as this weather is somewhat typical during that time. First up will be the Bluefin Tuna madness again in December and January.  We have placed the welcome signs and encouraged the pogies to stick around so hopefully the bluefin will once again make an appearance right here outside our back door at Ocean Isle.  After the bluefin have moved on, the arrival of February and March means its time to either clean out the basement or search for warmer latitudes and the next great bite.  That is where the Traveling Fisherman program comes into play.  The OIFC is putting together a trip to head down to Panama, Central America and fish for giant black marlin, blue marlin, sailfish, huge yellowfin tuna, roosterfish and snapper.  The trip is slated for March 14th-19th at the Paradise Fishing Lodge.  We'll be fishing 4 full days aboard the center console fleet while accomodations, food, and cocktails will be provided at the fishing lodge for 5 nights.  For an adventure of this caliber we were able to secure an excellent rate of $2600 per person for 3 per/boat.  This includes everything but airfare to Panama, transportation to the lodge and gratuity.  We will be fishing the world famous Hannibal Banks and Montosa Island using a variety of techniques including live bait, casting top water plugs and trolling lures.  From my own experience down there I can promise there is no where on Earth with the variety, quality and quantity of gamefish.  We have several fishermen and fisherwomen interested in the trip but there is space remaining.  It's a great opportunity to travel to an exotic fishing location with a group of familiar fellow fishermen and fisherwomen.  Deposits are due by January 1, 2010.  Email captbarrett@oifc.com if you're interested in joining the team. 

For now we'll watch it rain, recover from recent battles, and dream about the next fish.

"Weather" | OIFC 1- 36' | 11/11/09
 

Former tropical storm Ida is blessing us in southeastern N.C. with a few showers.  But that does not deter the Fishing Report, especially when we have such good reporters!

Dr. Jeff  Wallen of Myrtle Beach and OIB reports that he fished with live shrimp Sunday and caught 2 18"+ trout and several slot redfish.  he bought his shrimp in Murrells Inlet.

Captain Jeff Williamson (Get Busy/OIFC) decided to return from deer hunting and sent this picture of some flounder caught in the Lockwoods Folly River by Jeremy Ridenhour.   Jeremy was using B&M PK 5's. 

Also, Jamie Blue of Clemson Univ. updated his earlier report with a picture of a blackfin tuna caught on Martin, Joe and Chris McLoed's fishing trip
