"Kings on the 90's" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/12/10
 

Friday,  James Wemyss fished the 90's using some 10-12 inch mullet.  He had some pretty hot action  between 11 am and 3 pm with 3 kings making it to the side of his boat, only to "come unbuttoned" before he could sink the gaff.  He also saw a few kings sky about 4 ft. in the air.  Three unfortunate kings made it to James' grill later in the evening via his cooler.  As James said "they made for an eventful day".

Many thanks to James and the other anglers who share their fishing stories with us.

""On the Fly"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/12/10
 

Mr. Joe wanted to catch a redfish on the fly rod. Talk about a challenge with all this bait in the water? We had a plan though...locate a school using live bait and then offer them a fly. We located a few schools yesterday, but they were having nothing to do with what we were selling on the fly rod. We pounded the schools with several differnent fly patterns, but could not fool them. We would throw a live mullet every now and then on our spinning tackle just to make sure the school had not moved on. Then we would offer them the fly again. Finally our arms gave out. Mr. Joe said the h#?! with this, lets have some fun. We put it to them with live mullet, until the 30 or so mullet minnows were gone. We had live little pogys in the live well. We gave them a try, but these fish were being picking today. We did pick one up on the pogy and another on a live shrimp, but they wanted mullet! Still an awesome day picking up 20+ redfish in the shallows. We ended on a beautiful note as we passed under the Ocean Isle Beach Bridge yesterday. See ya on the water!

Picked up this nice flounder right off my dock this afternoon. It made me start difting my canal and on out around the docks. I picked up a couple of redfish along the docks on the intercoastal as well. Mullet! Live mullet! The water is chop full of these guys and the game fish are keying in on them right now. See ya on the water!

"OUCH!!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/11/10
 

A good reason to keep a pair  of pliers with side cutters on board.  Keith fished the Rumble in the Jungle ALL DAY with this in his hand.  I'd be screaming like a baby.  This man is one tuff dude!

"Black Dog's Wahoo" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/10/10
 

Here's a picture of a great wahoo caught with a black/purple "pirate plug" rigged by Andrew Sanderson and deployed off shore of the 100/400 in 81 degree, beautiful water.

In the picture is Casy Johnson, the angler, Molly Garber, Ned Garber and Andrew Sanderson while fishing with Bob Newell aboard Bob's Black Dog.  This is one of two wahoo the crew hooked up with, but the only one boated.  They also caught black fin tuna which made a great sushi and wasabi tray.

"Rumble" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/09/10
 

The Rumble In The Jungle was today.  Participants found plenty of pogeys right around the Cherry Grove Pier.  The seas were great as was the weather.  Fishermen I talked to fished from the Atlantic Ledge to the Hammer in search of the winning king.. 

There were a lot of kings weighed mostly in the mid twenties to low teens.  At last report Brant was in 4th with a 30+ king.  We caught our fish at the Hammer with just enough time to make it to the scales.  I think this weather is supposed to hold and will make for great fishing.

The U.S. Open is next weekend and the Fall Brawl is the following weekend.  As the month wears on the king bite should be getting hotter than it is now.

""Golden Sunrise"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/08/10
 

Yesterday Martin Mcleod stopped by to show off his gulf stream catch. Martin's crew weighed a citation wahoo and a blackfin tuna that was just shy of the mark. If you are sitting out the Rumble in the Jungle king tournament, now would be the time to go deep. Sunday is suppose to be a flat sea all the way to the canyon!

Fished a few hours this morning with a great couple from Columbia, SC. We were greeted by an unexpected brisk NE breeze this morning. The sunrise was awesome this morning and things warmed up pretty quick. We moved around a lot trying to find a hungry fish. Not too many of those around...we caught a few here and a few there. The ones we caught were not hungry, their bellies were already full! The fish are definitely feeding hard right now. Just have to keep moving until you find them. We would move to a spot catch three with in a half dozen cast and then they would just quit. Move again and catch a few more. We ended the day with a couple of nice keepers for the frying pan. See ya on the water!

"Grouper and More" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/08/10
 

Our Cat boat chartered a group yesterday and caught a "boat load" of grouper.  Unfortunately they were all undersized and were released.  (Boat load is an angler's unit of measurement, meaning a lot.  Not an actual "boat load").  Below are a couple of pictures of Brandon Sauls and Nesbitt Noble with a couple they caught just before the "big rain".  Some friends are diving and bottom fish shooting this weekend so I hope to have their report.  Might I suggest Midtown Bistro on 17 N. Myrtle Beach for frest seafood?

Yesterday several boats went blue fish huntin'.  There were a lot caught, but they were sparse.  Some pogeys were spotted flipping in about 35 ft. of water.  The ocean was beautiful with a distinct tide line at the inlets.  It ought to be nice this weekend for the Rumble In The Jungle and just plain ole fun fishing.  Also below are some pictures of the sea I took yesterday.  There are still a lot of people red drum fishing at the Little River Jetties.

"Sawmills Dollar's Kings" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/07/10
 

Below are some great pictures from a weekend trip this past Friday and Saturday taken aboard Captain C.C. Anderson's "Sawmil lDollars"  based out Mocksville, N.C..

The pictures are of Jeff Bowden holding "the magic bait"  he used to catch the kings.  Captain Anderson, Brian Custard and Doug Illing are holding their 3  big kings.  Captain Anderson and Doug Illing are holding the red drum they caught at the Jetties.  The guys said it was too bad for them  the U. S. Open wasn't held last weekend.

Thanks for sharing your pictures with everyone.

Also, Captain Jeff Beck and I went on a bait catching mission and caught several blues near shore just off OIB.  We saw gulls and pelicans diving, but didn't see any pogys.  There was a distinct tide line at about 30 ft. of water.  We'll be at it again in preparation for the Rumble In The Jungle.  The OIFC will be set up at the Rumble with some pretty cool stuff going on.

""Inshore Action"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/06/10
 

Fished a few hours yesterday afternoon on the first bit of incoming tide. A few flounder were biting despite the stained water. I had 4 chances to land a nice redfish yesterday and only capitalized on two of them. Break offs come with the territory when fishing for reds near the pilings. I usually have a report on fishing with artificials, but the water is just too stained and the bait is thick! If the water starts to clear or bait starts to disappear, the artiicials will be back out of the bag. The trout should start to stack up in large schools anytime now. I look for things to get exciting as the weather gets in a stable pattern and the moon starts building again. Live mullet, shrimp, and little pogies fished near or on the bottom will provide the best success right now. Gulp baits in dark colors in shrimp or pogy style worked really slow will also trigger some bites from flounder and reds. Don't rule out the ole popping cork with a D.O.A shrimp for the trout. The louder you can be in stained water the better. Anybody ever thought about using Rube's hydro-sonic fish call in the backwater? I think I will give a try and let you know. See ya on the water!

"Kingfishing report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/06/10
 

Yesterday ran down to Yaupon/River Channel. Best water at Yaupon, dark brown, but clean. First bait in water, a 20+ King. Couple other strikes and left to explore. River Channel looked nasty, lots of current from all fresh water pouring out, dark brown, but dirty. Did not look good to me at all. Going to have to do a lot of cleaning up for weekend river channel bite, but certainly coould happen. Left and went to Ocean Crest Pier area, water looked ok, but not as good as Yaupon. Water had more green to it, but a little silty. Shallotte Inlet looked the same. No bites.

Turbo sized pogies up and down the beach. Everyday water should be improving with north wind. Hopefully by Saturday the classic mid October beach bite is on. Good luck to everyone fishing the Rumble in the Jungle and Swansboro this weekend. See you there.

"Breaking News" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/04/10
 

Capts Chris and Steele are hard at work -- on a morning charter and just boated a 20+ pound King while fishing the Little River tide line.  Could not find Pogys, so using dead Cigars.  This could be the start !!!!

Sheldon Franzel had the honor of fighting this long awaited king.  Along on the charter with Sheldon were Jessie Franzel and Alexis Nicholson of Billings, Montana  Also aboard were their friends Sherry and Mark Norland of Asheville, N.C.  Everyone also said that before they could get their spread back out they saw an even bigger king sky!

"Reds and Kings" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/03/10
 

The red drum bite has been hot as fire the past few days, especially down towards South Carolina.  This may be in part due to the large amount of mullet just off shore.  Here's a couple of pictures of a 32lb'r caught by Nesbitt Noble and a 22 lb'r caught by Brandon Sauls yesterday.

Also, just got word from a friend of mine, Jennifer, who said she caught two kings and had two get away from her while fishing at the Cherry Grove Pier today.  This lady is a pier fishing expert and her reports are VERY credible.  This is definitely a great sign!!

"Red Drum" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/03/10
 

The OIFC has received numerous reports of a hot red drum bite very near shore and at the Little River Jetties.  Several drum were well over slot.  Though we can't keep them, they make for a great fight on light tackle, and a good photo op.  Also the bait mullet are extremely thick near shore.  No reports of pogies.
