"Artificials Working!!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/28/12
 

I got up first thing this morning so I could get live mullet minnows at low tide. The mullet minnows are showing up and the predator fish are following. I tossed a few live minnows around the Ocean Isle Bridge in the hopes of catching a rodeo red, but only had one bite that quickly broke off in the pilings. I moved around hitting one hole after another with no action. I decided to get on the move using artificials to cover some ground. Trout were the first to strike...all 6 trout were short of the 14 inch mark. I continued to cover ground and found a flounder...Then a big bite! Something just about took the rod out of my hand...it was a quick release as I pulled the hooks. I fished that area a while only catching one more trout. I continued to move...found a few redfish...got a nice 26 3/4" fish to weigh for the rodeo. Looks like the red drum race is going to be tight. I broke off three more fish before finally landing a nice flounder. Bass Assassin's 4" Sea Shad in sand trout color came through today! I love it! See ya on the water!

"Weekend Plans" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/26/12
 

The wind has been BLOWING !!  But, we are hoping for a weather window that will allow us to get in trips on Saturday and Sunday.  I expect Saturday will be decent, probably sloppy on the break in the warm water.  Sunday could go one of two ways, great or horrible.  We will of course analyze in the early AM's before we leave, but right now plan is for both boats to be on the water this weekend -- VHF 19 -- Black Jack area most likely.  Hope to see you on the water.

"Passing fronts" | Get Busy | 04/26/12
 

Making it tough on fishing and even harder on catching. Between the wind blowing and the rain. The inlets are totally mudded up. Slow down your baits and keep fishing. They will bite.

"We Need Your Support!!" | Get Busy | 04/26/12

  Miss Katelyn is not only "easy on the eyes", but is a beautiful, highly intelligent angler who fishes inshore and offshore as well as occasionally serves as 1st mate.  She is definitely loved by all the OIFC children and represents the qualities the OIFC family stands for.

"Break in the Weather" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/25/12
 

The wind has been howling...The weather broke about mid afternoon today and I was feeling quite a bit better after another dose of the stomach flu. I headed for the OIFC to check on the mud minnow tanks. Mud Minnows will be fully stocked tomorrow morning. The tide was about right to go hit my secret bait catching spot. Mullet minnows were thick! I made a few cast getting plenty for a little fishing myself this afternoon. I made a short run to a spot that has not produced in a few years, but decided to give it a shot today. First cast produced a nice flounder. Second cast produced a nice trout. I caught 5 flounder and a trout in about 45 minutes. I made a move back towards home and decided to give the Ocean Isle Bridge a shot. Capt. Brant gave me a visit and took video of me catching another nice flounder under the bridge. The flat fish are here and biting well! I love it! See ya on the water!

"Bluefin Video" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/24/12
 

If you recall a couple of months ago Team OIFC travelled to Oregon Inlet for our annual Bluefin Tuna harrassment outing.  We carried very talented film maker, Chris Campbell - this has been out a while, but I've been lax in making it public to all --

Check it out-- Click this link -  http://vimeo.com/38964238

"Sea Bass rules" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/23/12
 

Spent some good tele time today with both the Mid Atlantic Marine Fisheries and South Atlantic folks, trying to understand the reason why the rules north of Cape Hatteras would be relaxed and our rules are not. Here's the story. First, the commissions believe there are 2 stocks of seabass that have genetic differences. Therefore they break out the 2 stocks geographically and thus study sea bass from Cape Hatteras north and Cape Hatteras south as 2 distinct seperate groups of fish. They acknowledge there may be some mixing but they contend they are different fish. The recent studies are complete and the north of CH study shows not only are sea bass not overfished, but in fact they are underfished. The end result is they are re-opening their sea bass season May 19, and are increasing the limits to 25 fish per person, in order to get the fish mass back to a controlable level[figure that logic out]. Whereas the study for south of CH shows that sea bass are not overfished, however they are not fully recovered, thus our season remains closed. All of us "boots on the ground" raise our eyebrows and say how can this be? We can't hardly fish for kings on a downrigger, bee liners, or grouper because the sea bass eat our baits first and are basically jumping into the boat. My conclusion is politics are influencing the manner that the studies are being done. That thought comes from what we saw on our trip to Washington a few weeks ago at the fishing rally. At the rally, there were several of the most powerful northern  members of Congress there, pounding the podium, and telling their constituents from the northern states this issue has their attention and they are committed to fixing it. Senators Kerry, Franks, Schumer,ect all were there, lending their support to the fishermen. As I recall, in our area, only Senator Jones from NC spoke and Senator West from Florida. A couple other Reps from Florida also spoke, but the sea bass deal is mostly a NC/SC/Ga issue. These decisions are being made on a federal level, so when you have the most powerful Senators championing a cause, it makes me suspicious that how a study is interpreted or how it is prepared, could in fact lead 2 studies for the same basic fish, fish that mix together in certain areas of the study, to somehow come to a 180 degree different determination. If my conclusion is correct, the challenge becomes more difficult, as even if our elected folks stepped up their game, none of them are from the large population centers like in the northern cities, thus it is difficult for them to have much power. I don't know the answer, but since this is a federal issue, as election season rolls around and they seek your support, make sure they understand you want their support as well.

"Chris' Wahoo" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/23/12
 

Chris Campbell was the angler aboard the "Lein Holder" when this wahoo struck.  The wahoo hit a blue and white skirted ballyhoo in 68 degree, 175 ft. deep water.  He fought the fish for about 20 minutes and said it skyed about 7 to 8 ft. behind the boat.  He said it was a beautiful sight.
