"LBRA Turnament" | Stori Teller-24' | 08/04/07
 

ATTENTION ALL FISHERMEN!!!! Team OIFC is once again gearing up for the Long Bay Artifical Reef Asociation's annual tournament. I have just been informed that I will be spearheading the OIFC effort to get out team together. I've gotten commitments from some exellent local flounder fishermen already. This is an excellent opportunity for us to fish together as a team, representing Brunswick County,the OIFC, while helping our friends at the LBARA continue to improve our fisheries. The tournament is slated for Sept.21 and 22. We need "lines in the water" in order to be successful in bringing home the hardware. I'll keep you posted as I learn more. Visit www.lbara.com for further information. Contact me at the OIFC, or my cell 910-443-0531 or email sunset69@atmc.net. Let's bring home the gold!

"Weekly Sails Report" | Mac Marle'n- 32' | 08/04/07
 

There are two truths about billfishing I have discovered. (1) You are either a hero or a zero and (2) It ain't a long walk from the penthouse to the outhouse. Today I had the pleasure of getting to fish with long time friend Sonny Carter, his son J.D. (of NC/SC Governor's Cup fame), and several of Sonny's business associates who had heard of our recent successes and wanted to cash in. First Mate Rudy Upton ran the cockpit as we went back to one of the usual places, the good old Horseshoe. We got a late start, but were thrilled to see that even after this easterly blow (which lasted most of the week) the bait is still there. We skirted around bait pods all day and saw tons of flyers, but managed only one definite sailfish bite. Interestingly enough, all our bites (including mackerel and bonitas) came from our shotgun line, which I have started to fish when targeting sails. This bait is not as far back as a shotgun line would be when targeting tuna or dolphin, but it is well separated from the rest of the spread, at the edge of where you can see it. The fact that this is all the fish would hit makes me think that they are not feeding aggressively, right next to the boat (and the dredge, like they typically do. What I want to try next, when confronted with the same situation, is live bait under a kite. This will get everything back further away from the boat and hopefully get these fish feeding even when they are in a more timid mood. It works wonders in Florida, so why not here? On another note, I just got in the pictures from another sailfish encounter on the MacMarlen, taken earlier this week. Butch Armstrong, his son Jason, and Greg Crumpton went with Capt. Scott Hewett and myself and were able to catch this 74 inch beauty on a circle-hook rigged ballyhoo. These guys have fished around the world (especially Costa Rica) and are wanting to do some damage in the billfish record books. We were thrilled that Greg could check Atlantic Sailfish off from his list of species towards his Royal Grand Slam. I think he is up to four species total, so he is well on his way. Good luck to Greg and the rest of the crew--we'd love to have you back on board to chase some more of the elusive fish on your list.

"New King lure" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 08/03/07
 

I've been testing a new King lure last couple weeks. Actually, a friend in Minnesota turned me on to it where they use it for Walleye and Muskie fishing. I've used it on last 3 trips where I caught approx 20 Kings, several Dolphin, and 2 Sailfish. Of approx 25 fish, this lure accounted for 20 of them. It operates on a theory of generating hydro kinetic energy that is then transformed to your bait fish and thus attracts predator fish to you. Maybe thats what happens or maybe it scares your live bait so that he is putting out the hydro kinetic energy. I'm not a scientist, but I can tell you it works. Wire it inline on your King rig 3 inches above your bait or connected to swivel where you tie in to your line. We have them here at OIFC. Comes in red,green or clear and cost $9.99. Give it a try. We can ship them to wherever you're located. Give us a call at 910575FISH. Thanks. YEEHAW FISH CALL!!!!

"You guessed it..." | Mac Marle'n- 32' | 08/01/07
 

The brothers Newell struck again on Sunday, Bob and Edwin teaming catching a sail at the 100/400 for team Black Dog. You know we'll have to watch out for them in next years tournament. Hunter and Lyle got one on Tuesday at the Jungle. Everyone go ahead and get your practice in. Bear in mind, if this tournament is a go, it's going to reward dead bait trollers over live bait fisherment. Hint hint... Jamie Blue and Zach Faulkner said they are going to give it a try tomorrow on towards the Jungle so we'll see if the spindlebeaks are biting down that way. Stay tuned.

"'Cuda Fishing" | It Works- 27' | 07/31/07
 

Due to the north east wind today, the king mackerel bite was extremely slow, so on my pm trip, we decided to do a little 'cuda fishing. We managed to coax one on the line, a beauty at 43", and around 30 lbs. Contrary to what many people think, these fish are outstanding game fish, quite often skyrocketing out of the water when striking, really smoking off the line when they run, and even jumping during the fight. The best part of 'cuda fishing is that it is a catch and release fishery, which translates into a very sustainable, highly exiciting big game fishery. The best areas to 'cuda fish are any wreck or buoy from 30 feet of water on out. You start out by catching a spanish on a clark spoon, then rigging it live with 3-4 #1 or #2 trebles on #9 wire, making the rig just like your normal live bait king rigs. Put the spanish out in your spread in the propwash, then pull it around the buoy or over the wreck, and wait for the explosion. This is guaranteed to be one of the most breathtaking strikes you will ever witness. If you haven't tried 'cuda fishing before, give it a chance, you won't regret it. The weather is looking good for the next several days, and we happen to have some openings, so give us a call and let us show you what excitement is all about, be it king mackerel, wahoo in the gulf stream, or 'cuda fishing.

"Save our pogies SAVED!!!!!" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/31/07
 

There's been a whole lot of politicing going on last couple weeks on the menhaden bill in the State Legislature. The bill cleared the House and was sent to the Senate. It was assigned to the Seafood and Agriculture committee where I think the plan was for it to die.HOWEVER, due to the effort of all you fishermen out there it did not die, and Saturday morning at 9:00am it passed the Senate with a resounding 38-5 majority. So what happened, and how did we go from the same failures we have endured in the past to victory! The credit goes to several:
[1] you fishermen for letting Senator Soles and Senator Albertson know how important this bill is.
[2] Representative Bonner Stiller for introducing the bill in the House and being it's champion throughout the process, never giving up, and continuing to fight the battle for us fishermen.
[2] Senator R.C Soles for understanding how important the bill is to us fishermen, and using his considerable influence to get it out of comittee and to the Senate floor where it passed by a overwhelming vote.

You would have to have been in the middle of this thing  to understand the amazing dynamics of what happened. For the last week, I was advised repeatedly that it was a dead deal, however with the incredible support for the bill  that Senator Soles saw from his constituents, Senator Soles stepped in and saved the day. Where it appeared the bill would be a victim of "politics", in the end, our elected officials heard your voice and responded to the public rather than letting the bill be killed. The public prevailed and this is a great feeling to know that our government will be steered by the citizens if we make our voice loud enough and directed enough. For us residents of Brunswick County, we are blessed to have Bonner Stiller as our  representative in the House and Senator R.C. Soles as our senator in the Senate. These elected officials need and deserve our support. They both went way out on a limb to get the bill passed, and now we must reward them with our support.

What does this mean for our Brunswick County waters? After the Governor signs the bill[which I can't imagione he wouldn't with the strength of the vote], we have saved the pogies from commercial purse seine netting in our state waters. This will be "law" and cannot be changed unless a new bill is passed. That would be a stretch which we obviously would fight. Brunswick County will be put on the world stage as taking a strong step forward with fishery conservation matters and I believe our area will be viewed as a "fishing mecca" in North Carolina.

Congrats to everyone and please drop a email of thanks to bonners@ncleg.net and rcsoles@ncleg.net. Thanks again for your support. Rube McMullan

"King Fish" | It Works- 27' | 07/30/07
 

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. The king mackerel bite has been really consistent in 70+ feet depths, with a pretty consistent bite in 60+ feet the last week due to the fact that a cold front cooled the water down 3-4 degrees. There is still an above average sailfish bite in 70+ feet of water. Today, I took two groups out. On my am trip, we boated 6 kings, and released 9 more in 65 feet of water. The bite was nothing short of on fire. On the pm trip, the bite had slowed quite a bit, however, we pulled it out at the end before an incoming storm forced us back to the dock. The 2 kings weighed 26.05 lbs, and 32.65 lbs. I don't think anyone would complain about slow action with 2 smokers like this!! The weather has been great, the fishing world class, all that's missing is you! Come on down and go with us!!

"Today's Report" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/30/07
 

Despite entering into the ?dog days? of Summer, offshore fishing has actually picked up over the past week. Often this time of year the high water temperatures cause the offshore fish to become lethargic and thus produce less fishing action. However, for whatever reason, the offshore bite for wahoo, sailfish, king mackerel, snapper and grouper has been very good over the past week. The biggest surprise has been the very good wahoo fishing that has been taking place along the edge of the break in 140-200 feet of water. The Winyah Scarp area has been producing the best action, but there has also been good action at the 100/400 and Black Jack hole area. The wahoo have been biting trolled ballyhoo behind skirts with blue/white and black/purple being the most productive skirt colors. In addition, there continue to be an above average number of sailfish being caught anywhere from 60 feet out to the 180+ foot depths. There are two ways that sailfish are most commonly caught in our area. The majority are caught by fishermen fishing for king mackerel, slow trolling either live or dead bait. In this instance, the sailfish are certainly welcome, but a totally incidental catch. The other technique involves actually targeting the sailfish by trolling with teaser chains and dredges in an attempt to draw the sailfish?s attention to the boat. Once the sailfish is in the spread focused on the teaser, you pitch a small rigged ballyhoo to them and pull the teaser away. The sailfish will see the bait and almost always attack it. This form of ?bait and switch? has been made famous in Central America and now the opportunity is presenting itself right here off our beaches. If you are serious about catching sailfish, this technique is deadly effective, however it takes a lot of practice and keen observation. Once you set your teasers, you must keep a very close watch so you can be ready when the sailfish shows up. The advantage to this style is that you get to actually see and feed the fish, which is fun and challenging, and you get to pick whatever size tackle you want to fight the fish on. In addition to the sailfish and wahoo, the grouper and especially snapper have been biting very good in the 90-110 foot depth range. Also, the king mackerel have been biting this week at the Jungle as well as most of the bottom fishing hot spots in 80-100 feet of water. A great day of fishing might include anchoring over good structure in 100 feet and catching grouper and snapper while drifting back live snapper on top and catching king mackerel. All in all, the fishing has been strong this past week, and I hope it continues. We are now in the last 1/3 of the Summer season and I?ve all ready got Fall on my mind: I can?t wait. *** Also- new school dates announced for October-- come join me- call (910) 575-3474 xt 3 to reserve a spot.

"Got ballyhoos?" | Mac Marle'n- 32' | 07/29/07
 

Got the pictures from Jimmy Lee Williams and Capt. Drew Shytle today from their adventures in the Gulf Stream yesterday. They fished with Mr. and Ms. Gus and really mugged the wahoos. They ended up with thirteen, a few dolphin, a blackfin tuna, some king mackerel, and some rainbow runners. Drew said they quit fishing when they ran out of bait. Ilander Flashers were the hot item riding in front of their baits. I guess the weather has just been different this year--it feels like August on the beaches, June when you are 30 miles offshore, and October in the Gulf Stream! There is actually a band of cooler water as you move offshore, and that edge forming up against the Gulf Stream is causing the Winyah Scarp area to hold mucho bait. Anyone want to get out and try it? We've got a few scattered openings over the next two weeks. We can go offshore for the wahoos or do a full day to target sailfish. Let's go fishing!

"Action everywhere" | Mac Marle'n- 32' | 07/28/07
 

I think everyone fished today, and the results were pretty solid. Capt. Brant finished in the top 10 in the Greater Wilmington King Mackerel Tournament on the Carolina Contender, and while we couldn't replicate his success on the Fight'n Triton, we found the Horseshoe covered up with dolphin, mackerel, and once again, a sailfish. Just wish we could have caught a heavier king. Jamie Blue nailed a 39 pounder at the Jungle, where it seems like the bite finally heated up again. Too bad he wasn't in the tourney--I think that fish would have won. Capt. Drew Shytle on the Crowd Pleaser has been fishing the Gulf Stream hard this week down towards the Winyah Scarp and just called to say that they absolutely crushed the wahoos and the dolphins today. He promised to send me pictures of their catch tomorrow. It's getting to be that time to start heading offshore again, and I'm fired up about that. Finally, Gene Williams sent me these pictures of the giant redfish that he, James Hodge, and Brad Barbee have been targeting right off the beaches. It's good to know that this fishery, which were once thought to be exclusive to Cape Lookout and points north is thriving in this area. There will be much more to report with fair winds on the horizon, so I'll try to keep everyone posted. If anyone wants to go dead bait trolling for sails, I think we have an opening on Thursday...Results have been pretty good lately...910 575 FISH...

"Capt. Brant's Fishing School" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/28/07
 

I am fairly good at inshore fishing but wanted to gain some knowledge at off shore angling, so my son Jeff and I signed up for Brant's school. As Brant can, and probably will, tell you I have a LOT to learn. Also attending were Butch (I apogize for not rembering his last name) and Gary Hurley, publisher of The Fisherman's Post. Brant covered in depth everything from determing where to fish for Kings to "his" very simple way to throw a Pogy Net in the land class Thursday. Friday was spent putting our knowledge to practical use. The seas were glassy and the weather perfect,ideal for the school. Sounds just like a Rube weather report doesn't it. First we located Pogies and after a spectacular throw by yours truely we had enough bait for the day. Brant let the others throw for the experience. Then we were off to catch Kings. We spent the rest of the day fishing the 50 to 70 foot range, boating six nice Kings for Gary and Butch to eat. We caught many more which were released with Brant showing the proper way. We fished several locations with positive results at each. We all signed up for the school to learn, which we did. But each had other motives as well. Butch wanted to become a better fisherman so he could teach his son. Gary was writing an article. I wanted to spend quality time with my son, as well as learn to become a better fisherman and to better help custumers at the OIFC. Jeff wanted to improve his off shore skills and give me this as my birthday present. All of us reached our goals plus more! A special thanks goes out to Brant for putting on an excellent school. I really recommend this school, even to the experienced King fisherman.........Thanks Brant

Fish & Fishermen Get Heat Relief by Capt. Brant McMullan It is so nice to wake up in the morning and not break a sweat between the front door and the car door. Over the weekend we had a welcome cool front pass through the and bring low humidity and temperatures in the 80?s. And although it also brought strong winds which made fishing offshore difficult, I am personally happy to sacrifice a day or two of getting beat up on the ocean for a few days of heat relief. All last week we fought aggravating southwest winds at 15-20 knots and seas in the 3-5 foot range. It was sloppy seas, but they were not bad enough not to go, but just bad enough to make many of our parties lose their lunches and keep everyone off balance and hanging on. The fishing was also a bit tougher as it seems that most of the kings, dolphin, cobia?. that have been holding in the 50-70 foot range have moved offshore to the 80-90 foot depth range. As such, we had to try to beat our way offshore to deeper water in order to have the best success. The good news is that when we were able to get there, the kings were biting quite well along with a mix of dolphin and quite few sailfish. On Saturday, I released two sailfish and caught a mahi and a bunch of kings aboard the Ocean Isle Fishing Center boat while fishing 85 feet of water. Capt. Roger released two sailfish last week as well aboard the ShowTime while fishing the Raritan. Hot spots have included the Atlantic Ledge, 22 mile rocks, 26 mile rocks, Raritan and Horseshoe. Due to last week?s rough seas, we weren?t able to find pogys for most of the week and caught most of our fish on dead cigar minnows. It is true that I preach and push live bait fishing whenever possible, but if you can?t get live bait or don?t want to take the time, a dead cigar minnows slow trolled behind a Cape Lookout skirt is hard to beat. Looking ahead to this week, I think the forecasted stable weather may likely bring more action back to the 50-70 foot depth range. We have started seeing the pogys again along Ocean Isle and Holden Beach, so live baiting is back in the picture. On the offshore fishing scene, I have gotten reports of a few guys still heading to the break and doing quite well on wahoo. If you?ve got the itch, don?t overlook this possibility. Good fishing and catch you next week.

"Fishing Report" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/23/07
 

Finally! We have a gotten a weather change, and although it made the weekend a bit rough, this week looks very nice. The kings are still biting, but they are scattered in the 50-70 foot depth range. Once you get to the 80 foot depth they are more prevalent along with a mix of dolphin and quite a few Sailfish-- on Saturday I had 2 Sailfish, a mahi and a bunch of kings in this range. The Pogys have shown back up on the beach and have been holding off of Holden and Ocean Isle. Come on down and enjoy the great weather this week as the temps look to stay in the low 80's and the winds light-- the fishing should be excellent. Also, this weekend I am hosting another fishing school and currently have 2 spots open. This week's school has the ground school portion on Thursday PM from 6-8pm and the fishing will be all day on Friday. Call me at (910) 575-3474 xt 3 or email with interest. Capt. Brant

"Inshore Update" | Stori Teller-24' | 07/22/07
 

There is no doubt that the dogs days of summer are officially here, but thankfully the fishing has remained strong, despite air temperatures in the 90's and water temps soaring in the mid 80's.  The flounder bite has continued to be strong, with a couple of recent days producing exceptional numbers of fish.  I didn't see one over 4lbs this past week, but the numbers of fish made up for it.  The flounder are biting basically everywhere, from the creeks and inlets, out to the nearshore reefs in 35 - 40 feet of water.  There are still a few trout lurking around, most of which are nice ones, averaging from 2 - 4 pounds.  Finally, things on the redfish front have also been good, with plenty of reds being found in the creeks and in the ICW.  The key is to locate the baitfish (there are tons of finger mullet right now) and in most cases the reds and trout aren't far behind.  I've seen reds of all sizes this past week, from 12" puppies to big bulls pushing 40", so be prepared, you never know how big that drum is going to be when he bites.  So don't let the hot weather stop you, get out there on the water nad catch some fish.

"Flounder Reort" | Stori Teller-24' | 07/21/07
 

Us inshore guys have been extremely pleased with the flounder action over the past few days. Captain Kyle of the Stori Teller reported to me that he had nine keeper flat fish and two trout in the four pound range Thursday. His charter was so happy with the day that she not only helped Kyle clean the fish, but helped him wash the boat. Now that's a happy customer!!! Today I went out with family and friends and nailed two flounder in the 16" range right off in the Shallotte Inlet. Big Zack of the OIFC had a great day with 12 in the 16"+ range. All were caught on a falling tides, at the beach side of the Shallotte Inlet. We were both using mullet which were easily caught in the concrete canals at OIB. Finally, a local fisherman advised he'd been netting shrimp around the fishing boats in the Calabash River. A lot of info., I know, but we at the OIFC are comitted to helping everone's fishing experience.

"Menhaden bill" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/19/07
 

Ok, been digging deep into the political world and here is the deal on the menhaden bill that is stuck in Senator Albertson's committee. Long story, but here is what needs to happen. Senator RC Soles[a Democrate] is co-sponsor of bill with Stiller[a Republican]. Senator Soles represents Brunswick County. As a Democrate with years of service and great respect in the Senate, he has the power to get Sen Albertson[a Democrate] to move the bill out of committee. It's a question of how aggressive Sen Soles is willing to be to get the bill moved. He needs to hear loud and clear from his constituents that the bill must be moved out of Sen Albertson's committee so it can be voted on in the Senate. Senator Soles is the key so PLEASE contact him by tele at his office #910-6532015  and by email Rcsoles@ncleg.net. The telephone contact is most effective. This is a time critical matter. Thanks.

"Fishing Report" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/17/07
 

It has been a bit since I've reported and sorry for that. We have been busy running fishing charters as we hit the middle of the Summer tourist season-- 1/2 day fishing trips galore. We are in a typical Summer pattern right now with SW winds between 10 and 20 knots-- typically lighter in the AM and then picking up by 2 or 3pm. The kings are scattered around, but for the most part, they have retreated back offshore to the 80-100 foot depth range. Spots such as the Atlantic Ledge and Horseshoe have been producing well. Also in this depth range we are seeing some Grouper and still the occasional Mahi and Cobia. We have also been seeing a lot of Sailfish in this range as well. Further offshore, I got a good report last Saturday of some good wahoo catches at the 100/400 and Winyah Scarp areas. There are plenty of Pogys on the beach for bait, so that has been nice and consistent. The fishing is not crazy good, but it is decent and to par with what late July normally offers. This coming weekend I have a fishing school and have 1 spot left if anyone is intersted. The ground school is Thurs. PM from 6-8pm with fishing all day on Saturday-- call me at (910) 575-3474 xt 3 if you have interest.

"Sails pitch" | Mac Marle'n- 32' | 07/15/07
 

Ok, the evidence is overwhelming. I had the priviledge of fishing today on Norris Buff's "Johnny Mike" with Norris and First Mate Rudy Upton. We ran in the slop out to the Raritan and pulled four naked ballyhoo on circle hooks along with two teasers, a squid chain trailed by a blue/white Ilander and a pink Moldcraft widerange. We dealt with a couple of peanut dolphin fish harassing our baits, but no doubt about it, after thirty minutes, a sail rose to our right rigger bait and sucked it right out of the pin. Rudy dropped it back and then cranked down to the fish, but nothing there. No worries. We reset and it wasn't fifteen minutes until the bait in the same position got hit again. Rudy freespooled the reel for what seemed like an eternity until the speed of the line changed and then he came tight. Bingo! The sailfish tailwaked through the rest of the spread as we gunned the boat and cranked in teasers to keep lines untangled. Norris fought the fish to nearly boatside, but the sail managed to jump one last time and free himself. No matter--we were going to let it go anyway--we'll just call that a sportsman's release. All this adds up to one thing--SAILFISH TOURNEY NEXT SUMMER! Expect a format that rewards trolling and circle hooks over live bait and traditional Js. Of course, all sails will be released and scored on the honor system, but you can count on dolphin being added to the points total. I am open to any and all input on this event, so keep those emails coming.

"Menhaden bill stuck in Senate committee" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/13/07
 

Representative Stiller's bill on restricting commercial menhaden netting off Brunswick County was passed by the House and sent to the Senate. It is in the Seafood and Agriculture Committee chaired by Senator Albertson. We need everyone to contact Senator Albertson and encourage him to approve the bill and move it out of his committee so it can go to the Senate floor to be voted on. The message to Senator Albertson is that protecting menhaden is critical to the very important recreational fishery in Brunswick County and thus is very important to our tourist industry. There is no commercial conflict as there is no North Carolina company involved in the business. Protecting our tourism based recreationalfishing industry is critical to our Brunswick County economy. His email address is: charliea@ncleg.net Everyone please send a email, letter or tele call. Thanks.

"Post Storm Report" | Show Time- 34' | 07/13/07
 

We, inshore fisherman at the OIFC have been wondering what effect the recent turbulant weather would have on our fishing. Well, yesterday one of the "Fishing Center's" expert inshore fishermen Zack Faulkner, (for inshore advice, Zack works in the store) set out flounder fishing. First of all he netted some live shrimp in the waterway, a good sign. Then he proceeded to Tubbs inlet where he caught a 6.35 lb. citation flounder. Congrats to Zack!!! His trip indicates that the inshore bite is still on. The July 4th crowd has slacked off, so come down and "Get ya' some!!!
