This weekend's weather is predicted to be chamber of commerce perfect. We have several charters booked as well as Captain Kyle's Inshore Tournament. Come on over to the Fishing Center, bring the family and watch as the OIFC Charter Boats come in with their catches. The weather has been windy, fishermen have had work, so the fish ought to be starving and ready to be caught. Captain Kyle's weigh in will start in the afternoon, and our Gulf Stream boats will be coming to the docks between 6 and 7pm. Have an enjoyable time on our balcony, shopping the store, or at the G'Mack sipping the beverage of your choice and enjoy the weather and the activities. Hope to see you there!

"Big Trailer issue news!" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/01/08
 

Through the efforts of Lanny Wilson, DOT Commissioner for Brunswick and New Hanover County, Mac Campbell, also a DOT Commissioner and homeowner at Ocean Isle[Mack Daddy King Mackerel Team], and the entire DOT Board, this morning the DOT passed a Resolution basically instructing the State Legislators that the DOT is on board 100% with efforts to change the boat trailering laws in our state. I will post the letter to our site[as soon as I can figure out how to], however last sentence reads: Now Therefore, it is resloved by the NC Board Of Transportation that the North Carolina General Assembly be advised of this body's request for a modification of any and all laws such that no special permit or specialized operations license be required to transport recreational and sport fishing vessels and that this body further supports laws making the transportation of said vessels as economic and convenient as is safely reasonable and in the public interest. This is BIG news, as what the DOT has done is given the Legislators the ammo they need to overcome any political opposition to the change to the laws regarding trailering boats. If you know any of the DOT members,or see Mack Daddy on the water, tell them thanks or point them to the pogies! Rube McMullan

"Pre - Tournament Report" | Speckulator - 22' | 04/30/08
 

Alright folks, the Spring Inshore Classic is coming up this weekend, which should give everyone the perfect excuse to get on the water and go fishing. The trout bite continues to be strong, with fish up to 6lbs being caught this past weekend. Also, the flounder were quite prevalent as well, and the bite seems to only be getting better as the water continues to warm. I feel that the key to winning this weekend is going to be to make sure that you catch both a trout and a flounder for the overall aggragte prize. Regardless of size of each, having both species we be very important. Registration will be from 3 - 8 p.m. on Friday, with dinner at 6 p.m. and the captains meeting at 8 p.m. Fishing hours will be from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, with the awards at approximately 5 p.m. So make plans to come down this weekend and fish with us!

"Lockwoods Folly Inlet" | World Cat- 33' | 04/28/08
 

I have recieved several phone calls today about the state of Lockwood Folly Inlet from concerned boaters out of the Holden Beach area.  I have heard of at least three instances of outboard boats running aground at mid-tide or less.  We are still awaiting dredging of that inlet.  The good news is that Shallotte Inlet is very passable, even at low tide.  There are two channels through Shallotte, one to the east and one to the west.  I ran the OIFC World Cat through at nearly dead low tide on Saturday and never marked less than 3.5 feet below the hull.  Certainly there are conditions where the inlet will be less than perfect, but at least we have one cut that we know we can get through.

"Smack Down" | Speckulator - 22' | 04/27/08
 

I finally was granted an exclusive interview with Brandon "Bone Crusher" Sauls today. The Bone Crusher is fresh off a win in Austin and Tripps Backwater Tournament. The focus of my interview was to get a response to the trash talked by Kyle "Speckulator" Hughes about the standings in the OIFC Year Around Rodeo. Bone Crusher's only comments were talk is talk, he'll let his fishing do the talking for him, and he intends to take Kyle's prize money in Kyle's own tournament this weekend. That would be the ultimate insult. I pride myself in just reporting the news...I report, you decide. My intention is not to create unhealthy competition, I just wanted to give Bone Crusher the opportunity to defend himself. It looks like the inshore guys have taken the lead in the "Rodeo". The offshore fishermen need to step up to the plate and get their competition going.

"Mixed Bag" | World Cat- 33' | 04/27/08
 

Captain Roger and First Mate Boston Rob took a Stream Charter today. Roger and Boston reported spotty grouper and dolphin action however they did manage to land some nice ones, and saved the day with a large catch of excellent sized sea bass. Roger feels the picking up annd expects great success on his next trip! You'll have to excuse me for the lack of details, but Clark Kent here was running late and fell down on the job.

"Golf Gator" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/26/08
 

You anglers who are also golfers should pay close attention to this picture. I kid you not, this picture is not a joke, it has not been doctored or anything else. The man who took this photo is a great friend of mine and lives on a green at Oyster Bay Golf Course. He keeps his camera trained on the green and took this shot. This may not be about salt water fishing, but it does give you something to think about if you are a golfer or enjoy fishing some of our many ponds. Check out the golf ball on his back..can you say mulligan?

"Next Boat" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/26/08
 

Don Williamson, the Captain of the "Black Gold" Hydra Sport was the next up at the Fishing Center's scales. Don and his crew of his nephew, Chase, Bob Jordan and Amy Jordan put a citation Wahoo weighing 67.3 lbs on the OIFC scales. They were fishing the Winyah Scarp when they noticed a lot of bait fish jumping in the area. Soon after they slayed this great Wahoo. Skill was with them as Amy is the SKA Division 9 Lady Angler of the Year. Having talent as well as good looks on board paid off. Speaking of pay off...they were not entered in the OIFC Rodeo either. As expensive as fishing is this day and time, it would be worth the entry fee ($20 per species) to sign up for the Rodeo, it will probably be more helpful in covering your expenses than any politician could ever be, even in an election year.

"Roof Job" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/26/08
 

Randy Wallace of Hickory, N.C., and Ocean Isle Beach (Wallace Roofing Co.) and captain of the Roofing Contender had a day at the 100/400 most of dream of. He ventured out there by himself and managed to boat a 46 and 36.6 lb. wahoo. He said he fought and released 7 more. Isn't it tough being Randy? Though at the time he held the record 'hoo catch for the day, he was soon to be knocked off by Black Gold. Also I might mention that Randy was not signed up for the OIFC Rodeo and probably would have made the board if he had been. Anyway congratulations to Randy! Check out the pictures I was able to get.

"Trout Fishin'" | Speckulator - 22' | 04/25/08
 

I'm fresh back in from fishing with Jeff Beck, Captain Roger and Boston Rob on Jeff's Scout 240 Bay Boat. The weather and water was great, with the air temp. in the 70's and water ranging from 66-69 degrees. We headed out with Jeff and Rogers "trout candy". We set up south of Sunset Beach. On the way we were joined by Brian and Austin Aycock who were getting in some last minute fishing before taking care of the last minute details for Austin and Tripp's Inshore Tournament this weekend. As we all pretty much fished the same area, we stayed in touch. Austin got cut off on one strike, but did manage to hit luck on other trout. Jeff and Roger were having good fortune with trout and even some blues. Jeff boated a 4.30 lb. trout which put him third in the money for the OIFC Year Round Rodeo. I'm sure with a 4.30 lb'r. he won't stay long. At the OIFC dock we talked with Captain Jeff Williams of Get Busy Charters, www.getbusy.com, who fishes some for the OIFC.He was preparing for an afternoon charter on a falling tide. I hope to get a report from him. Capt. Roger, & Captain Chris both have Gulf Steam charters this weekend so I hope to have some reports from them. Don't forget Austin and Trips Tournament this weekend, Kyles Inshore Tournament and the Far Out Shoot Out coming up. Also be sure to sign up for the OIFC Year Round Fishing Rodeo.

"Trout" | Speckulator - 22' | 04/23/08
 

I talked with Captain Jeff Williams, who advised he had good luck in "the river", landing 20 some trout in one trip. Jeff Beck and I braved the north wind, and a full moon high tide with moderate success in Tubbs Inlet. Later in the day I watched a family pulling in one trout after another down by the Sunset Bridge. I've been told by reliable sources that catches have been made as far south the jetties. Looks like bites along our waterway. Jeff B.'s kayaks should be in shortly and he'll begin chartering shallow water and eco trips. Call the OIFC at 575-FISH if you're interested.

"North Wind" | World Cat- 33' | 04/23/08
 

Captain Roger and first mate Boston Rob had a half day charter with Steve Elam and his group ranging from Atlanta to Michigan. They faced a stiff north wind and choppy seas, with Rob getting drenched by a rogue wave breaking over the bow. The crew who were targeting sea bass managed to boat a lot of one of the seas tastiest fish while making it home just ahead of the rain.

"Inshore Update" | Speckulator - 22' | 04/23/08
 

Alright folks, the magical time of year when everything breaks loose and the fish start snapping is upon us. The water temps are finally up where they need to be (upper 60s - 70deg), and the fish have really responded well. The trout bite is really picking up and the big girls have been on the feed prior to spawning. Quite a few fish from 5 - 8 pounds have been caught recently, and this pattern should continue for the next few weeks. The flounder bite is also beginning to kick into gear, with places like Tubbs inlet and Cherry Grove producing fish recently. Finaly, the old faithful redfish are still around in the same places they have been all winter, so a inshore slam is not out of the question right now. So get on the water and go fishing, and don't forget to come fish the Spring Inshore Classic, May 2nd and 3rd.

"What's up ?" | OIFC 1- 36' | 04/23/08
 

Filled up fishing class for Thurs-Fri, so we are getting set for a big weekend. Also have a full class on Sat-Sun. The weather is looking AWESOME for Fri-Sun and maybe beyond, and I'm excited about the fishing. Maybe this will be the week it breaks loose offshore? If you get on the water this weekend try any of the OIFC boats on VHF 11- OIFC World Cat, ShowTime, It Works-- or simply- how bout the OIFC-- anybody out there? In other news- I am getting to work on organizing the Jolly Mon King Classic and hope for another great year. Last year's record breaking 360 boat entries is a steep challenge, but the effort will be there, I hope you will be there too. I am putting together the program now and if anyone is interested in advertising with the Jolly Mon and/or Fall Brawl, please email me at captbrant@oifc.com or call (910) 575-3474 xt 3 --I have a program in place that offers an entry for a certain level of advertising, thus if you plan to fish and would like to get your business out there, you can combine the objectives AND write off the advertising/entry fee. I hope to see you on the water this weekend. Also- Far Out Shoot Out brochures have been out and we put them up and down the coast last week. If you want one and don't have one, email me - captbrant@oifc.com or call (910) 575-3474 xt 3 and I'll get it right out.

"Unique FOSO Opportunity" | World Cat- 33' | 04/23/08
 

For anyone who wants to maximize their Far Out Shootout experience, Ben Wilson (Team Grumpy) will be leading an overnight bottomfishing expedition to the Frying Pan Tower area, leaving the afternoon of May 9, weather permitting.  Any fish caught that night won't count towards your FOSO total as lines in begin at 8:00 the next morning, but it should be a great opportunity to fish out there with some buddies and hopefully catch some nice grouper and snapper to go with that tuna, dolphin, and wahoo!  You need not be entered in the tournament, anyone can go!  If interested, contact Ben at bfwilson@gmail.com.
