"Jolly Mon report" | Carolina Contender | 06/28/05
 

-Weather: Jim Can't torie still on the ball. weather looks perfect for Saturday or Sunday.

-Kings: Yesterday charter fleet reported murkey water and the fish wern't where they were supposed to be howver seeing alot of bait and most likely they wern't chewing do to water clarity. Seas have layed out and water should be clearing. We'll see what fleet has to report this evening. Menhaden are showing, yesterday toward Holden Beach. Standby.

-Ribbonfish: We've got shipment of 18-24inch, fresh hand caught, vacume wrapped Sebastian Inlet ribbonfish on the way. Will have by Thursday. Also we have blocks of Capt Mark's ground sardine chum. We've been using it and much more effective than menhaden[has shiny scales]

-Parking: Critically [politically] important that everyone please use our off island parking shuttle. It's free, no hassel, no parking tickets; free drawing for rods/reels/cast nets and there is just no parking available here at the OIFC. Your co-operation is greatly appreciated. Shutle will begin Friday at 3:00pm and will run Friday/Saturday/Sunday. Thanks for your help.

"Today's Report" | Capt. Hook | 06/27/05
 

We had a good day pulling out a King in the twenties, several smaller ones and a bunch of Amberjacks. The water is a little murky inside but clears up nice in about 70 feet of water. The grass willl still make you say a few choice words after you clean your baits about fifty times but maybe it will blow on out of here soon.
Stay Tuned

"Jolly Mon weather update" | Carolina Contender | 06/25/05
 

Just got off the coconut telegraph with Jim Can't torie and I now have the first unoffical forcast for the Jolly Mon. According to Jim:

After passage of our curent tropical wave a Bermuda High will build in returning our weather to a typical summer time pattern. This means rising temps, scattered thundershowers, and a wind pattern from the southwest. During the week the wind will move from east to south and then to southwest and will settle there. The weather pattern looks stable thru the period. By tourney time the wind should be light southwest in the morning with a afternoon sea breeze also from the southwest. Standby as our weather expert perfects his forecast.

On the fishing scene. Just like clockwork the big Kings began to show up the middle of this week. Our charter boats caught several in the 30's+. The fish were caught at the Jungle and Atlantic Ledge. I'm sure the big fish are at all the normal summer spots i.e. Shark Hole; 10/10; 90/90; 30/30. Our boats are blown out this weekend with the strom but Monday we will be on the water everyday leading up to the tourney and we will post what we're catching where each day.

On the parking scene: It is critically important we get EVERYONE to please use our off island free parking shuttle. We are dealing with political issues with the island traffic issues and the flames are being fanned by those who don't want the Jolly Mon to be part of the many families 4th of July weekend festivities[interestingly led by Sheffield's; see Beacon letter June 22 edition]. We have run this shuttle every year thus keeping our traffic off the island, but it's simple for our detractors to "point the finger at us", therefore we must be more diligent than ever to insure we are not adding to island traffic. The shuttle is simple, free, no parking hassels looking for a parking space that won't be there, no parking tickets....AND... we will be giving our drawing tickets for the shuttle riders for free rod/reels/cast nets/ect that will only be available to the shuttle riders. Again, please help us insure the Jolly Mon can continue to be part of your July 4th celebration at Ocean Isle Beach by using our parking shuttle. Thanks for your help.

"Today's Report" | Show Time | 06/24/05
 

After a slow couple of king fishing days I am happy to report that we found a good bite today near the Atlantic Ledge.  The action was steady from 8-12 pounders, however the highlight of the trip came at around 10:00am when we boated a 36.35 lb kingfish---the biggest so far this season at the Fishing Center.  We caught all fish on dead cigar minnows, since pogies were hard to come by this morning.  (I did see a huge school just outside the inlet as I was coming back through this afternoon.)  In closer to the beach, the spanish mackeral bite has been pretty steady the past few days just off of the Holden Beach Pier in 25-30 feet of water as well as at the Little River jetties.  Just a reminder that there are still a lot of very small king mackeral mixed in with the spanish so be careful in identifying the two.  Remember that spanish have very little drop in their lateral line and a black spot on their dorsal fin; whereas kings have a large drop in their lateral line and a clear dorsal fin.  It looks as if the weather may keep us at the dock for the next day or so but we'll be sure to report again as soon as we get back on the water.

"Jolly Mon parking" | Carolina Contender | 06/24/05
 

The Jolly Mon King Mackerel Tournament will be here July 1st weekend. Hope everyone is getting ready to join in our family fun event. From early indications it's looking like the Jolly Mon will be bigger than ever. I'm seeing more early entries than ever and what's interesting is the large number that are fishing the Jolly Mon for the first time. More boats, more money to give away, as you know we adjust the money upward if our minimum number of boats are met. Every year we have  exceeded the minimum.

 One very important request we need to make of you. There is no way we can handle the cars on our property therefore we run a off island shuttle to the tourney site here at the Ocean ISle Fishing Center. We will be running 4 shuttle buses starting at 3:00pm Friday. The lots will be before you cross the bridge and will be clearly marked. PLEASE ride the shuttle. It's free; no hassel; no fear of parking tickets. Also you will be given a ticket stub for a free drawing for those riding the shuttle; rods/reels/cast nets/ect.

Your help and co-operation is greatly appreciated in riding the shuttle

"Locating the big fish for the Jolly Mon" | Team Carolina Wellcraft | 06/23/05
 

Everybody wants to know where the big fish are and where they will likely be for the Jolly Mon. The second question is simple, just look at history as the tourney winner will come from the Jungle/Shark Hole/30:30/90:90/410:510/Lighthouse Rocks/River Channel or inlet mouths.

However I will be able to provide updated info as I will be fishing the Greater Wilmington King tourney this weekend and me along with a couple hundred others should be able to get a direct read on what's happening where which I will report back to you.

What we're seeing on our daily charters are lots of small fish and an increasing amount of bait appearing at the Jungle/410:510/65 Foot Hole area. Pogy's have been hard to find but when we are able to get them the size of fish we are catching increases dramatically. I beleive the big fish are there or are moving in as we speak and I expect the big schools of pogies to show in next couple of days. Once we have better bait to fish I think we will start to see the bigger tourney winning fish show. 

We'll know alot more after Wilmington tourney this weekend and all our charter boats are fishing everyday so we will have good info source to report on. Standby.

"Week in Review" | Carolina Contender | 06/20/05
 

The fishing has been slowed a bit this week with the arrival of East winds.  We are still catching lots of 4-8 pounds Kings at just about every spot from 50-70 feet of water.  The Menhaden are slowy moving into the area, although they are still unreliable.  We are also starting to see the arrival of a few larger Kings and Capt. Roger and 1st mate Ryan boated a nice 31.55 pounder on Thursday.  The Cobia are still in the area and we're also starting to catch Mahi in as close as 10 miles.  The Spanish Mackerel fishing has continued good on the beach and the Barracuda have definitely moved onto the reefs.

"Today's Report" | Capt. Hook | 06/17/05
 

Had a real good day with the Kings today. They are slowly getting bigger!! We tried to fish the 90s but the grass was so bad we could'nt or didn't fight it. Just 2 miles offshore at the Little River Offshore is where it was on!! The big pogies were just east of the OIB Fishing Pier, but we had better luck on dead cigars. Got a reminder from the NC Wildlife Officer today make sure kids under 13 have a Life Jacket ON AT ALL TIMES when boating!!
Back at it Tomorrow!!

"Wow" | Mac Marle'n | 06/17/05
 

While the fishing today was spotty at best, fearless first mate Ryan and I brought back a nice 31.7lb. smoker to the dock, which was only one of a few bites. We also got some nice hits from big fish but they failed to tighten up.  There were several fish being caught around the 390/390 and the Bardges and also we also found pogies 300 yards East of the OIB pier in about 7 ft. of water.  If you are looking for bigger Kingfish the live bait is neccessary, however, the snakes are still hitting the dead cigar minnows good.  We also boated some decent Mahi about 20 miles offshore so summer fishing is definitely starting to pick up.   

Sea Ya on the water....

"Cobia around" | Show Time | 06/15/05
 

While the king bite wasn't too hot offshore today we did end up bringing some nice cobia back to the dock, also a nice 4.5lb spanish and some assorted kings.  The conditions still continue to be a bit rough, hopefully  the swell will die down toward the end of the week, however, the fish are biting if you decide to venture out.  If you do go, be sure to take along some live eels and keep an open eye off the transom for the cobia, they seem to be showing up more and more and they provide an excellent fight as well as taste great on the table.

"Today's Report" | Mac Marle'n | 06/14/05
 

There was a good bite this morning at the 390/390 mark, the Mac Marle'n and the ShowTime tackled it with pretty good results.  On the Mac Marle'n several small kings were caught and released, there was a king weighing in around 15lbs. that was kept as well as a 5.1lb. spanish mackeral in addition to some kings in the 24 inch range.  All fish were caught trolling dead cigar minnows.

"Pogies" | Capt. Hook | 06/10/05
 

We caught nice 8 to 9 inch pogies west of the Sunset Beach Pier yesterday!! Sight for eyes they are!! The spainish and kings are still biting very well around the inlets and the 90's. I also picked up a couple at the bardges!! We lost a huge cobia on a reel malfunction but things happen! Stay Tuned!!

Action, action, action...thats all there was to say about this morning. We started out around the Sea Bouy spanish mackeral fishing and couldn't keep the lines in the water long enough to sit down. Spoon color didn't matter this morning as they were biting gold just as good as the silver.  After catching almost our limits we headed out to the 90-90 to do some sea bass fishing. They were scattered but we ended up with 10 keepers and many throw backs.  So I think it's official now...the spanish are here for good this summer and in huge numbers so take a couple hours after work or this weekend to get out and catch you a very tasty dinner.

Once again we did real well on the Kings and Spanish. The spanish were west of the Shallotte Sea Buoy in about 20 feet of water and the Kings were at the 90's. The kings range from too short to about 10 pounds. Back at it again tomorrow!! Congrats to Mike Spivey and crew on the Monday Blue Marlin release at the Black Jack Hole, Way to go Daddy R!! Pictures to come. Mike also said there were some 25 pound plus Mahi hanging around there also!! There seems to be alot these Bills floating around these days!!

After about a week of inconsistant King Mackeral fishing in the area, the bite picked up drastically today.  Lines were difficult to keep in the water as a result of multiple hook-ups sometimes even as many of 3 and 4 fish on at a time.  The majority of kings caught lately have been in the 27''-33'' range, larger ones have been caught.  Trolling dead and live cigar minnows has proved very productive and the fish have been biting indiscriminaely concerning duster color.  A majority of the fish have been caught around the 390/390 mark.  Also, remember if a fish bites the bait but does not hook up, drop the like back a few feet, also when one fish is hooked, drop back other lures in the spread to possibly hook up other fish.

We had an excellent day with the Spanish and Kings. We hit the Spanish just west of the Shallotte Sea Buoy in  18 to 25 feet of water. We moved to the 90's and caught several Kings in the 8 to 10 pound class. Things are starting to go off!!
