"Channel Bassin'" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/08/08
 

Yesterday was virtually a picture perfect day to be on the water, no wind, not too hot, not too cold, and the fish were biting. With the lunar tides we're having, we virtually had a high - rising tide all morning, so I decided to chase the redfish in the skinny water on some flooded oyser bars down toward Little River. We floated lived shrimp suspended under corks through these areas, and were rewarded with a steady bite of fish in the 16 - 18" class that lasted most of the morning. The fish weren't monsters, but they were no less fun to catch, proving that pound for pound the redfish is hardest fighting fish in the backwater. The fishing is getting better every day, so come on down and lets go get'em!

"Yesterdays big family adventure" | World Cat- 33' | 05/08/08
 

Considering taking up fishing as a sport. The family had a very nice day on the water. Caroline was absolutely great on the water-- she had her ups and a few downs, but between catching fish, playing with Barbie and eating, and sleeping, she was great. Amy and Stephanie worked the Sea Bass over while Barrett and I worked the Kings and Cobia-- oh yeah, Rube was there too- he caught 1 I think. Speaking of Cobia- they are thick offshore in 80-100 feet of water-- tons of them- BIG ONES- get ready!!

"Offshore report nearly an echo" | World Cat- 33' | 05/08/08
 

Just got confirmation from Brian Richard that the Gulf Stream was just as hot as everywhere else. Then Winyah Scarp went off yesterday and there were gaffers and wahoos everywhere. I heard of boats catching up to 40 dolphin, but sometimes, seeing is believeing...

"Get Busy" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/07/08
 

Jeff, Pam, and I took Camdyn out on the Scout today on a "get used to the boat" ride. We happened upon Captain Jeff Williams of Get Busy Charters, who charters for the OIFC. Captain Williams said he and his charter limited out on Spanish. They were fishing the Shallotte Buoy area using gold and silver Clark Spoons. Jeff told us that when the sun got up high the Spanish tore up the gold spoons. The OIFC stocks Clark Spoons and all Spanish tackle. You can order supplies from our Online Store at store@oifc.com or call us at 910-575-fish. Happy fishing!!

"No lack of action" | World Cat- 33' | 05/07/08
 

I've heard a lot of reports today, and tbe best that I can tell is that it was hot everywhere today. The kingfish bite was ON at the Atlantic Ledge, according to John Jarvis on the "Four Sons." Another report came from the Ocean Isle Pier, where quite a few limits of Spanish mackerel came to those fishing Gotcha! plugs. Capt. Brant, Capt. Amy, Capt. Barrett, Stephanie, Rube and Caroline scored well on the kings, then hopped around to catch some amberjack and other bottomfish. Anglers fishing the west end of Ocean Isle in Tubbs Inlet caught bluefish up to 10 pounds and Capt. Kyle did well on the channel bass on his charter. I'm guessing the Gulf Stream was equally hot, but I haven't talked to anyone who has been out there yet. Capt. Roger is going tomorrow, I'll bet he does well out there. In the meantime, make plans to fish soon. It's going on right now!!!

"Going Fishin'" | World Cat- 33' | 05/06/08
 

The family is going fishing tomorrow- Brant, Amy, Caroline, Rube, Barrett and Stephanie aboard the World Cat- we're taking Caroline for her first offshore trip which will hopefully include something between a Grouper and a Dolphin. We've got live Pinfish for bottom fishing and we'll start at that and then see where we go from there. The Stream fishing for Dolphin should be hot, so that is enticing. Stay tuned. We're equipped with blanky, coloring books, Barbie, and lots of food......

"Red Snapper" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/05/08
 

Linwood Wynne of Shallotte weighed in a nice, citation 19.75 lb. Snapper today. Linwood caught the Red in 95 feet of water on sardines. He was fishing with Brian Richards of OIB, Todd Heff, Dave (sorry last name not know) among other friends. The fishing for all species the past few days has been excellent and should only get better.

"65 lb. Tuna!!!!" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/04/08
 

That got your attention didn't it? Dan brought his English Bulldog, Tuna to the OIFC/Giggling Mackeral to enjoy the Tournament weigh in and watch our charter boats bring their fish to the dock. I've got an English Bulldog named Grouper, so I have a soft spot for them. Dan, Tuna, and a lot of folks enjoyed a relaxing evening on our dock watching as the various boats returned from a day fishing. We invite everyone to come watch as the fishing is only going to get better and the dock more exciting. I'll keep you posted as to what trips we have so you may join us.

"Last but not least" | Show Time- 34' | 05/04/08
 

Captain Roger and first mate Boston Rob had an extremely productive day at the Black Jack aboard the Showtime Saturday. Roger, not too long ago referred to the Black Jack as the Slack Jack. But not now!!! The "Hole" has become red hot providing an abundance of Ma hi and Wahoo. The charter was made up of a group of friends, Duke McClure, who caught his first Wahoo, Ian Evans of Greenville, N.C. and Gregg Wavle of Baltimore Md. Rube predicts a hot bite beginning the first of the week, and if history is any predictor of the future, he is right. Roger and Rob were on the ball and had cleaned some of the booty before I could take any pictures. Sorry about that.

"Bottom Gold" | World Cat- 33' | 05/04/08
 

Captains Chris Burrows and Chris Dew took a charter group from Atlanta, Saturday, consisting of friends Alex, Tim, Tony, Aaron ,LJ and Lance on a bottom fishing mission. The picture shows some of their catch, which looks like a bottom fish buffet. After a very successful day of fishing and cleaning fish it was obvious that Chris and Chris earned their money!!!

"1st In" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/04/08
 

A tired Gary Sheaff was the 1st offshore boat to return to the OIFC dock. Gary and his crew consisting ofShawn Baker, Hoyt Housand and Warren Sinclair fished the Black Jack aboard Gary's Grady White. Gary reported that he got into a heavy Wahoo bite and also filled a fish box with Dolphin, several of which he described as gaffers. The store was busy and Gary was tired, with a boatload of fish to clean so I didn't take any pictures.

"OIFC Rodeo" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/04/08
 

Contratulations to Brandon "Bone Crusher" Sauls for improving his lead in the OIFC Rodeo with his tournament winning, citation 8.3 lb. trout. To add insult to injury Brandon increased his lead in the Rodeo over Kyle and Jeff by winning Kyles' own tournament. When asked if he'd like to say anything, Bone Crusher just pointed to his fish bag. I guess that says it all. The inshore guys have one heck of a competition going. Its time for the offshore anglers to start weighing is some Dolphin, Wahoo, and King. They were hot this weekend!!!

"Spring Inshore Classic Results" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/03/08
 

The 2008 Spring Inshore Classic is now in the books. I would personally like to thank everyone that fished this year, because without you guys we obviously wouldn't have a tournament. 18 boats entered this year, and in the end, Ronnie Spangler, of Lawndale, NC emerged as this year's overall champion with a aggregate weight of 4.5lbs. (3.4lb. Trout + 1.1lb. Flounder). Ken Jacobs of Laurinburg, NC placed 1st in the flounder division with a 2.0lber. The top junior angler prize was shared by Noah Quaintance and Alex Mercer with a 2.7lb. Trout. The top lady angler was Heather quaintance, also with a 2.7lb. trout. However, the real story of the tournament was this year's 1st place trout, which was caught by none other than Capt. Brandon Sauls on the Bone Crusher. As the weigh - in began, the word on the docks was that the Bone Crusher was on the way with yet another gator trout. Well, Brandon and teammate William Southard didn't dispoint anyone, especially when they pulled a sow 8.30lb. trout out on their bag and put her on the scale. That fish couldn't have been caught by a more deserving team, because you would be hard pressed to find anyone who works harder prior to a tournament than these guys. However, there is one matter on which I have to set the record straight. The word on the docks this evening was that this fish (the 8.3lber)set both a new tournament record and a new overall OIFC record. Unfortunately for Brandon, his fish wasn't quite big enough to topple these two records, which are held by none other than yours truly, with the 8.55lber I caught during this tournament in 2006, when Clay Morphis was the director. All jokes aside, thanks again to everyone who fished. Below are the full results for the tournament. Also, the word I got from all the fishermen was that the trout bite was very good today, as was the flounder bite, only that many of the flounder were undersized. I be on the water tommorrow, so I'll let you know tommorrow night how it turns out. Overall (1 Flounder + 1 Trout) 1st - Ronnie Spangler - 3.4 Trout + 1.1 Flounder = 4.5 TTL 2nd - Clay Morphis - 1.15 Trout + 1.7 Flounder = 2.85 TTL 3rd - David Hooks - .75 Trout + 1.0 Flounder = 1.75 TTL Trout 1st - Brandon Sauls - 8.3 2nd - Robert Hughes - 3.7 3rd - Adam Sellers - 3.6 4th - Ronnie Spangler - 3.4 5th - Mike Fields - 3.15 Flounder 1st - Ken Jacobs - 2.00 2nd - Clay Morphis - 1.7 3rd - Ronnie Spangler - 1.1 4th - David Hooks - 1.0 Top Junior Angler Noah Quaintance & Alex Mercer - 2.7 Trout Top Lady Angler Heather Quaintance - 2.7 Trout

"King Beach Bite" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/03/08
 

Prepare for an all out red alert King beach bite Monday and Tuesday. A cold front comes thru waters Sunday evening pushing wind to north. Almost typical classic fall conditions. It should go off in Myrtle Beach hot spots and around Yaupon area. This beach bite comes every year late April, early May, only last week or so, so don't miss out on this great opportunity to enjoy catching these smoker size Kings right on the beach, just like October. Also, remember, every 25+ pounder you catch and release will have the fish gods smiling on you when you need him in a tournament.

"More trailer update info" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/02/08
 

Click on our "Political Issues" page and you will see copy of Resolution passed by Department of Transportation "asking" State Legislature to look at changing laws regarding towing boats. I spoke to Representative Stiller and he said this is VERY big, in terms of supporting his efforts at getting Legislation passed to change the rules. This will be a hot button issue when they go back in session in couple weeks and Rep Stiller is "on it". Having the DOT endorse the effort we have all put forth helps Rep Stiller and the other folks working on this. A lot of the credit goes to Lanny Wilson, DOT Board member for our area, as well as DOT Board member Mac Campbell[who has a home at Ocean Isle and is big king fisherman"Mack Daddy"] as well as all the DOT Board members who so aggressively sent their message to the Legislature. This is all very encouraging.

"Spanish are here, too!" | World Cat- 33' | 05/02/08
 

Just got the word from William Parker that the Spanish Mackerel have showed up, too.  He is between the AR460 and the Shallotte sea buoy and says he is catching all he wants.  Should be a good weekend for the frying pan, plus more of a bait buffet to draw those big smoker kings in.  All I can say is FINALLY!!!

"The kings are a chompin'" | World Cat- 33' | 05/02/08
 

Folks, it's official.  The kingfish have arrived on the Brunswick County beaches and they are hungry.  Apache, Cherry Grove, and Ocean Crest Piers have all confirmed kings over 24 pounds being caught in the last week.  The influx of bluefish (juvenile to giant) at the nearshore wrecks, artificial reefs, and other structure have got these smokers close to the beach and HUNGRY!  If you want to catch a citiation mackerel, now just may be the time.  A 3/4 day trip may just be the ticket.  Give us a ring at 910 575 FISH and we'll get you out after them.
