"Today's Report" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/06/06
 

Sorry I've been absent as of late.  I've been fishing steady and just haven't had time to keep the reports coming- hopefully Rube has been keeping you up to date in my absence- tomorrow I'll post a full report.  Here are some pics from the Lucas party the other day.

"King update" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/06/06
 

For King tourney fishermen this weekend:
Our charter boats still catching them at Horeshoe and Christina, best today at Horeshoe. Had one in upper 20's. Also hearing improved action at Georgetown. Menhaden at Georgetown and Cape Fear.

We got new shipment of 25lb blocks of Capt Mark's chum. Also still have some ribbonfish[quality is "ok", not great but ok.]

With north to northeast wind this weekend, look for beach bite at Yaupon or River Channel. Look for mullets on the beach.

"Gaffin' fish and takin' names!" | Show Time- 34' | 07/05/06
 

It's hot outside and someone was shooting fireworks off last night, so I think it's early July.  I'm losing track of the days because of the  hot fishing lately.  And that's a good thing...  On the MacMarlen Capt. Roger Gales and I led our party to ten solid kingfish and one giant Spanish mackerel yesterday at Christina's Ledge pulling dead cigar minnows.  Capt. Shane Hollar and Capt. Brant enjoyed similar success on their trips as well.  The docks at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center saw a steady flow of dolphin and kings today as all of the boats ran and caught fish.  The Horseshoe still seems like a good bet if you can work your way through the weeds, and the kings at the Atlantic Ledge are getting bigger, seemingly by the day.  Finally, there are pogies in the mouth of the Shallotte River if you want to spice up your spread with some live bait.  It's been in short supply this year, so I can't wait to throw that cast net tomorrow.  Good luck to all and tight lines...

"Spade Fishing" | Black Pearl- 31' | 07/03/06
 

My 6 year old son Tripp, long time friend and fishing partner Bengie Cox, and myself struck out on a Spade fishing trip on my 22 foot bay boat last Saturday not really knowing what we were doing. We started by netting a couple of dozen Jelly balls just outside Tubs Inlet then headed offshore to the Sherman. We anchored up near the wreck and Bengie slid 3 or 4 Jelly Balls down a fish stringer and then tied it to about 20 feet of twine with a 16-ounce sinker. He did this in lieu of a downrigger, then put it over the side of the boat while holding the twine. In about 10 minutes he felt them hitting the line and I baited a 10lb spinning outfit with a quarter sized piece of jelly, on a small nose hook with a ¾ ounce sinker, and flipped it over the side. I stuck it in a rod holder to bait a second rod and heard a commanding DAD, DAD and the rod was peeling drag. I took the pole down and handed it to Tripp and he got his first experience of being pulled into the gunnels! After a long fight I netted the 10-pound Spade and we kept repeating steps one and two. On light tackle these fish are an amazing fight. After that one battle Tripp became the net man. We caught 5 or 6 and headed home. Later that evening we put some on the grill and it is a great eating fish to boot!

"Lately" | Black Pearl- 31' | 07/03/06
 

We have been running strong here lately and the fishing has been pretty good, both inshore and offshore. We are catching Kings, Mahi, Spanish, Barracuda, Cobia and Jacks. Some days are slower than others but we are definitely set into our summer pattern. On the near shore/backwater side the flounders and specks are slowing down in the backwater but we still manage to pull a few out here and there. The near shore on the close wrecks and inlet mouths is doing better at this time.

"Mahi Mania---Round 2" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/03/06
 

Video Clip 1

| Video Clip 2
This morning, I captained the Carolina Contender for a 3/4 day mission.  With a stiff 3 foot S/SW chop in our face, we opted to change course and head to the Horseshoe, which would provide a better ride.  Along the entire ride, I noticed that there was a ton of scattered grass and was hoping that it cleared up before I got to the Horseshoe.  When I pulled the throttles back, I noticed that the grass was definately there, however it was managable.  We trolled around for 45 or so minutes before our first bite----soon after an 8 lb. mahi lay on the ice.  For the next couple of hours, we struggled to get bites from anything other than grass, however the bites that we got, we made the best of and managed to put 6 more mahi's and 1 king mackerel in the fishbox.  At 11:30, though, the entire day turned around with just one fish.  Line started screaming off the long line reel and the fish began tailwalking across the ocean, jumping straight at us.  All I could see was the fish's white stomach and the first words out of my mouth were "Good gracious what a mahi!"  However-----after about 3 jumps, she turned sideways and tailwalked for what seemed like forever and it was then that we saw the bill and sail of our first SAILFISH of the year!!  She put on quite the display, jumping well over 30 times for us before finally settling down for a tug-of-war.  Rob fought the fish for 45 minutes and had it beside the boat at least 8 times within picture (and video) range but would not let me grab it's bill.  Finally she was tired enough to lay beside the boat and allow me to drag her over the side for some pictures and a quick measurement.  On the tape, she went 72" (6 feet long) and am proud to say that when released she swam away unharmed!  With it now 12:15, we decided to call it a day and just as I got all the rods packed up, my tackle bag zipped up, and the boat cleaned, I looked over the side of the boat and all I could see were mahi's.  Without delay, I took 2 cigar minnows out and threw them over the side to get their attention, then proceeded to cut cigars in small chunks and put them on a single treble hook.  As fast as you could get a chunk in the water, you had 5 or more fish fighting over it!  These fish weren't itty-bitty either----all of them were 5+ lbs!  This action continued until we ran out of cigar minnows, however if we had more, we could have sat and caught them for hours!  Talk about luck and being at the right place at the right time!  With the mayhem of the sailfish and mahi's, I wasn't able to get many pictures, BUT-----my charter took some VERY good pictures and will be posting them as well very soon.  Hope you enjoy the pictures and be sure to also download the short videos that I shot!  Till next time---tight lines!

"What's happening where" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/03/06
 

Dolphin bite still good at Horseshoe, Capt Squid will report on his day but I saw his catch of Dolphin/Kings and a SAILFISH! He crushed them. Also decent King bite at Jungle.

The big news is the Gulf Stream is on fire! Well formed weed lines and lots of BIG dolphin[lots of 20-30's]. This could be the last big push for the Gulf Stream this season so need to get out there while fish and weather is co-operating. Best action has been inshore of the Steeples where lots of current is interacting with weed lines over structure...perfect recipe for fast action. Also several reports of Blue Marlin attacks in same area. When dolphin get thick like this we primarily pull skipping ballyhoo, you can go a little faster and with our Baitmaster Ballyhoo[the best ballyhoo on the market], they hold up to faster trolling speeds.

"Gulf Stream Report---Don't Hang Up Your Rods Yet!!" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 07/02/06
 

Yesterday I had the pleasure of joining my good friends Jeremy and Jason Foster and Lee Frick aboard the Foster's 33' Palmetto Custom, "The Job Site".  Our plan was to head to the stream and take revenge on all the big bull dolphin that we haven't been able to catch all year.  So off we headed to the Blackjack Hole since the satellite shot showed a very good temperature break just offshore of it and we thought that there may be a good weedline on it.  About 10 miles inshore of the Blackjack Hole, we ran across a very good weedline with a 1/2 degree temperature break on it.  Instead of stopping, we decided to stay with our plan and keep heading offshore in hopes of finding the bigger fish.  As fate would have it, 3 miles inshore of the Blackjack we ran across another weedline---this one being bigger and better looking than the first.  This one was too good to pass up so we stopped and got ready to drop baits in.  As we were setting the spread, we noticed a huge amount of life under the weedline and we knew that we were on to something.  Within 20 minutes of setting the spread, our first rigger clip popped and our first gaffer mahi of the day laid in the box.  For the next hour we trolled east up the weedline as it was taking us straight toward the Steeples and we picked mahi's off it one at a time.  Just as we got near the Steeples, the mats of weed started getting bigger and the fishing got even better.  It started with 5 lines going off at once (we caught two) and as fast as we could put baits in the water, we were hooking 20+ lb. gaffers and putting them in the box.  (Within 20 minutes we had 9 fish flopping in the box!)  At one time we stopped the boat and counted more than 15 fish under the boat---each one being 20+ lbs!    This action continued until 12:00 before we finally got a break to grab a sandwich and count our fish (23 in the box---almost all gaffers).  Just as we thought it couldn't any better, Jeremy saw a fish on our flat line and pounced to the back of the boat.  When I turned around, the fish had pulled loose from the flat line and went to the short rigger.  It popped, came tight, then pulled off.  Without any delay, the long rigger pops and Jason comes tight----we all look back and all we saw was the bill and wide open mouth of a Blue Marlin shaking wildly trying to throw the hook!  Then just as quick as he showed up, he had shaken his third hook and left us all shaking our heads wondering how we had just missed "the man in the blue suit" 3 different times---but that's just the way bill fishing goes (you catch far less than you hook).  In the next couple of hours we picked up a few more fish before we eventually ran out of bait (we took with us 67 ballyhoo) and decided to pack it up to come home.  As we ran across the weedline for the final time we got an idea----we had stuck a freshwater bass rod in the t-top with a popper tied on just in case we were able to use it.  So we pulled up to the grass line and I got on the bow with the bass rod and gave it a good cast toward the grass.  Within 3 times of popping the plug, mahi's rushed out from under the weedline and I had 4 fish crash the bait all at once!  We stayed there for 30 minutes or so, catching 4 more mahi's to bring our final total to 33 mahi's (13 bailers and 20 gaffers with the biggest being 33.5 lbs!) and 2 wahoo's.  Just as we were packing up to come home, Jeremy stood up on the bow and noticed a fish swimming on top of the water.  So he grabbed the popper again and proceeded to catch the biggest puffer fish any of us have laid eyes on!  (See picture below)  This thing was easily the size of a small beach ball and gave us a good laugh and a perfect way to end the day.  So it's safe to say that the gulf stream season is still not over----there are PLENTY of quality fish just waiting on us out there!  This was by far the best day I've had down here in a long time and can't wait to get back out there to do it again!

"Pogy Spotting" | The Flying Fish | 06/29/06
 

"Pogy Hunter" a.k.a "The Flying Fish" parasail vessel has located a large school of pogies today.  Around 10am this morning I departed Lockwood Folly Inlet and headed south back towards Ocean Isle.  About a 1/2 mile outside Lockwood inlet I found a large school of pogies in about 20 feet of water.  They were popping on the surface and would have been easy to catch with one of our custom fast sinking cast nets.  I'll report back tomorrow if I see anything off of Ocean Isle.

"Shallotte Inlet Buoy Crisis; Solution in the Works" | The Flying Fish | 06/28/06
 

When the Coast Guard pulled the buoys from the Shallotte Inlet last year we declared "Red Alert" as it was obvious, removal of the buoys was inviting a catastrophy. Many boaters lack the expertise or navigation equipment to be able to traverse Shallotte Inlet without a buoy system so we made a decision to go to work and try to solve the problem. Our hope was to use the voice of the Ocean Isle Fishing Center to influence the Coast Guard however we shortly learned trying to argue a point with the Federal Government was hopeless. Their position was their 65 foot buoy tender could not safely operate in our 5 foot low water and thus they would no longer service the inlet and pulled their buoys. Our point was Shallotte Inlet is 99% used by small boats, typically outboards, and 5 feet of water was plenty of low tide depth, and that I could speak from 30 years of experience using Shallotte Inlet and it was no worse today than it had ever been....so, why pull the  buoys?

Our argument fell on deaf ears so we went back to the drawing board and found out there was in fact a way to buoy an inlet with Coast Guard approval called "The Private Aids to Navigation Program". This program was established for exactly the situtation we had where there was an obvious need for buoying a body of water where the CG was unwilling to preform the service. The CG was very helpful in expaining the process to me which was simply finding a "sponsor" and filling out a form. They indicated they could grant approval in one day! So wow, we thought; simple problems need simple solutions. We then went to the Town of Ocean Isle and presented our plan and unfortunately the Town decided they could not get involved with the plan as they didn't feel they could accept the liability or responsibility. Obviously we were disapointed however it's not our style to quit on a project, so back to the drawing board.

I was going out the canal cut at the Fishing Center and noticed the buoys the Wildlife Resources places at their boat ramp and the obvious thought was that Wildlife was buoying their ramps all over the State so maybe we could talk them into taking on the Shallotte Inlet project. I contacted our State Representative Bonner Stiller who has many times evidenced himself as a true friend of sportfishermen and boaters and presented the plan to him. The basic approach was that in the event of a death on the water, it is Wildlife that responds and here was a chance to help prevent a tragedy before it occurred. Rep Stiller made the presentation to the Wildlife Resources people in Raleigh and their early indication was it might make sense and they would look into it. In less than 2 weeks time Wildlife sent their team led by Chief Engineer Gordon Myers to see us here at Ocean Isle and this past Friday we took the group on a tour of Shallotte Inlet to view the problem. Early indication from Gordon Myers is he feels confident Wildlife can help out and as soon as he does some quick engineering he will respond with a committment.

This is a HUGE victory if Gordon can come thru for us and a tremondous THANK YOU needs to be directed to him and to our State Representative Bonner Stiller who is responsible for getting the support from Wildlife Resources to solve the problem. It's important to let these people hear our gratitude so please drop them a email at;

"" | Black Pearl- 31' | 06/27/06
 

Hey everybody, sorry it has been so long since the last update, we have been busy running charters, fishing tournaments, and trying to work on boats.  Here are some of the pics from last week, the king bite has really improved and I hope it keeps getting better, also the mahi and cobia are still around and biting.  Live bait has still been an issue but we have been finding it up in the Cape Fear and around Carolina Beach.  The weather has been an issue the first part of this week but we?re back on the water tomorrow.

"Jolly Mon 2006" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 06/27/06
 

Thanks to all for fishing and joining in the 2006 Choplin Marine, Jolly Mon King Classic.  We registered 280 boats in the tournament and thanks to perfect timing from Mother Nature, most all got in a good day of fishing on Saturday before it turned rough on Sunday.  The winning fish came from a variety of areas with Patrick Bryant's winner coming from the Horseshoe.  2nd came from the 30/30, 4th from the Cape Fear and 5th from Georgetown.  The Jungle again produced the most leaderboard fish, but most of the fish from there placed from 20th-51st. 
I again want to say thanks to our special sponsors- Choplin Marine, BB&T, Sea Tow, Magic-Tilt, Guy C. Lee (what a great Capt. Meeting dinner!), The GPS Store, Naber Dodge, Shallotte Rent-All, R&R Allstate, Elite Homes and all the other tournament advertisers who joined to make this event more successful.  I hope you will consider patronizing their business and if you do, please say thanks for their support of the Jolly Mon.
Next up for the OIFC will be the Fall Brawl which had to be moved at the requirement of the town one week later to Oct 27-29.  I hope you will all consider participating.
Also, for all of you who did finish in the top 51 places, your checks and prizes are being held at the OIFC for you.  You can stop by from 6am-10pm to pick them up.
Thanks again to all and I'll see you on  the water.

"Day 1- Jolly Mon Report" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 06/24/06
 

We registered 280 boats to fish the tournament.  Thanks to all who have participated.  Today, the weather started nice but by noon the SE wind had picked up to 15kts and made the fishing day a bit tough.  The "Twister" with Capt. Patrick Bryant of Holden Beach weighed in second and posted a nice 38 pounder which is currently in the lead.  Scott Quaintance on the "Casual Water" posted a 33 and change for 2nd and "Wrench Head" posted a 30 for third-- for complete weigh-in information see- http://www.oifishingcenter.com/tournament_results.cfm?tourneyid=1 - the word is the top fish came from the Horse Shoe, 2nd from the 30/30 and 3rd from the River Channel.  Thank you to all who weighed in and followed direction to keep the weigh-in line under control.  At cut-off time at 5pm there were several boats that barely missed the cut, some of which were quite upset.  At the Capt. Meeting I announced the official tournament time from the official tournament clock, and that is what the weigh-in line was based on.  What your clock or GPS says is not relevant to the official tournament time, which is a good reason to be sure to attend the Capt. Meeting.  I am sorry there were a few boats that missed the cut-off, but it is my every intent to maintain consistency in rule enforcement in hopes of maintaining the integrity of the tournament- I hope you understand.
Tomorrow will be the final weigh-in day.  We have 35+/- boats fishing and we'll have to see how the leader board gets shuffled.  Stay tuned.

"Jolly Mon; Game On!!" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 06/24/06
 

The Jolly Mon King Mackerel Classic is underway. Approx 300 boats entered the tourney and most are fishing today. Weather this morning is lite NE wind with a SE swell. Weighin opens at 2:00 and you must be in line by 5:00. Come on down and watch the weighin. PLEASE use our hassel free off island parking shuttle. It will begin running at 12:00 noon.We have lots of Jolly Mon tee shirts still available.

 Brant is flying with Capt Brandon this morning air dropping Jolly Jugs.

Big news Brant shared with the crowd at the Capt meeting last night. You will recall from earlier post the efforts we have been putting forth to win the battle to get buoys put back in Shallotte Inlet. I am pleased to report yesterday we hosted a inlet tour with the Coast Guard, Wildlife Resources Chief Engineer Gordon Myers and State Representative Bonner Stiller. Brant took this group aboard the Carolina Contender and showed them how critical it is to get the buoys put back into the inlet. With the support of Rep Stiller[a 100% friend of the fishermen and boaters], Wildlife Resources has indicated they are receptive to take on the project and as soon as they can do some quick engineering they will make their committment to do so. We consider this a MAJOR VICTORY after we struck out with the Coast Guard and the Town of Ocean Isle. The Wildlife Resources Commission is to be highly commended for their willingness to step forward and take on this project in order to save lives. Please let them know via emails of your appreciation of their willingess to consider solving this crisis. Standby for more info on this project as soon as the Jolly Mon dust settles.

"Jolly Mon latest update" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 06/23/06
 

Weather PERFECT. You could skip a nickel to Frying Pan Tower today, not a palm fron moving; flat calm. The forecast says 3-5 feet but as we've been saying that's misleading as their reference is to a SE swell. With no wind, the swell means nothing, so stick with my forecast of PERFECT.

Fish are showing at all the normal spots, Jungle/Shark Hole/ect. Pogies still difficult but some bait showing at Carolina Beach. Everything kicks off today. Come join us.

"Jo9lly Mon weather/fish/bait update" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 06/22/06
 

Jolly Mon:
-Kings showed up good yesterday at Shark Hole area. No real big ones but several in the low 20's.
-Pogies are still difficult, small ones in intercoastal. We have 25 cases of 18-24 inch ribbonfish being delivered today[hopefully they are good quality, we had to buy them sight unseen]. Also 50 cases of KingJigger ballyhoo. Could end up being a dead bait tournament.
-Weather still looks PERFECT. There is a SE swell to develop Saturday, but winds are lite so will have no effect. The wave height indicated is the swell and the wind is the afternoon sea breeze.

Come join us, looks like it will be a HUGE turnout, lots of $$'s to the winners!!!

"Today's Report" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 06/21/06
 

On your marks, get set......  The Jolly Mon is in its final countdown stages.  I'm putting the final touches on what I hope will be a great tournament for the entire family.  Lots of prize expansion in the Lady, Jr. and Senior categories as well as more money paid out.  As a reminder, registration will be on Friday from 12-10pm with dinner at 6pm and the Capt. Meeting at 7pm.  No doubt the Ocean Isle Fishing Center will be very busy and crowded, so I again ask that you park and ride the free shuttle service which will bring you from the off-island lot located 1/2 mile before the OIB bridge.  It is very simple and it will be the fastest way to get the site.  If you ride the shuttle, you will be eligible to win prizes upwards of $200 value.
The fishing has been better today than yesterday.  They took a break yesterday, but today the fish are back on the feed with decent numbers of kings up to 20 pounds coming from the Shark Hole.
The big question is- what about bait?  I've talked to guys from Charleston to Morehead and there just aren't any Pogys on the beach.  The only place where Menhaden of much size have been holding is front of Sunny Point docks in the Cape Fear River up to Snow's Cut.  Even those baits have been a bit on the small size.  So, this year I feel like the tournament will be one in which alternative baits will be the norm.  Don't underestimate a Cigar Minnow, Ballyhoo or Ribbonfish.  Also, stock up on jig rigs and if you have a chance, catch a few dead Spanish for bait.  Just because you don't have a live Pogy doesn't mean you won't catch the big one.  Do you think the Kings at the Jungle see Pogys where they are?  They are feeding on Cigar Minnows, Pinfish, Snapper........  Be a bit creative.  For me, I like the idea of jigging Pinfish, Snappers, Grunts... etc... and anchoring up and chumming and fishing these baits under balloons.
And believe it or not, our charter fleet has been catching alot of good size kings up to 25 pounds off the dead baits- they've gotten to where they like to use small Ballyhoo as they hold up longer and are a bit larger than Cigar Minnows. 
Hope to see you this Friday- stand by for further reports

"weather/fish/bait update" | Carolina Contender- 36' | 06/21/06
 

-Weather still holding, looks perfect. Slight swell developing for Sunday [that's the increased seas marine weather showing]but very lite winds so no effect. Scatterred showers which should only be a factor in late afternoon/evening. It's PERFECT!

-Big Kings either slowed down last couple days or everybody's quit talking. Were showing up at Jungle/Christina, probably still there. Watch out for Yaupon/River Channel/Lighthouse Rocks to click in.

- Pogies still holding in Cape Fear River, however big schools in intercoastal but medium to small size.
-We have 25 cases of 18-24 inch ribbonfish coming tomorrow.
-We have 25 cases of jigger ballyhoo coming tomorrow
This could end up being a dead bait tourney unless pogies suddenly show up.
