"Fighting the Blues!!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/30/12
 

John and Margie joined us for a half day trip yesterday afternoon. We arrived at our first location to find the tide still rising. Little peanut pogies were working along a grass point just ahead of us. We baited a few hooks and set up. Our minnows were disappearing off the hook with little indication of strikes. Margie gets hit hard and the fish headed straight for the boat. We caught up to the fish just in time to feel the line go slack again. We made some adjustments...John gets slammed! I thought my reel was going to explode. The fish took about 60yds. of line at wahoo speed, turned back around heading straight past the boat. I was coaching John to hang on and put pressure on the fish. As the fish got 10yds. past the boat it breached the surface leaping nearly 3 feet into the air! What a BLUEFISH! After some incrediable angling by John, we landed a monster bluefish for our backwaters. Margie was up next...with bluefish hanging around like that, I was getting doubtful that anything else would be around. Margie gets a bite...the fish takes about 20yds. pretty quickly, but swirls on top showing us the perfect eye spot on its tail. Nice REDFISH! Work on 'em girl! Margie had her hands full, but in the end she wins the fight boating a nice 25" red. We decided to change gears and end the day trying to catch a flounder for supper. Our first three lines in the water produced nice flounder. We boated 12 to 15 flounder in the last 30 minutes with four nice keepers in the mix. We ended the day releasing a flounder to catch another day. I love it! Thank you guys for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"A King On A Top Water" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/30/12
 

Jon Sweeney and Jon Davis went to the Atlantic Ledge Sunday morning.  They said it was a nice day overall despite the choppy ride back.  The Jon and Jon team caught 2 kings, a shark and lost a couple of fish that hit downrigger. The kings were on the small
side 10 and 16 #'s however after they got back in, they met was a guy from the
campground at the Shallotte Inlet who caught a 25.8# king by  the Shallotte Inlet buoy.   He was messing around with a freshwater Rapala minnow when he caught the king. 

 The first picture is of the kings from the Atlantic Ledge. The second picture, with the SUV in the background, is the king the guy caught outside the inlet

"Ben and PaPa Speir" | Get Busy | 04/30/12
 

PaPa and Benjamin Speir took to the Jetties for some grandpa and grandson fun this weekend.  They had a big time with some blues, a slot red fish and many protected sea bass.  Of course they released them.  It's part of a good PaPa's job to take a grandson, or granddaughter fishing on a beautiful day!

What is that bait I see in the picture?  Are we to believe that is what they used?

"Take Time" | Get Busy | 04/30/12
 

Taking time to spend time on the water with friends and family on the water. So many of my charters are 3 generations or families down on vacation that have'nt seen each other for years. The fishing is heating up around OIB. Air and Water temps in the low to mid 70's.Following a tip I got from a freind I headed up the Shallotte River to put a couple of flounder on my table and spend some time with my friends and family .We fished live bait along with Gulp New Penny shrimp and Gulp swimming minows. 1/4 to 1/2 oz red heads depending on the current. Fish them slow keeping contact with the bottem. Mullet minnows are showing up a little early this year in the back end of creeks.

"King Machine" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/30/12
 

Sea Tow OIB Captain Charlie Wilson sent me this picture of a real gas saving king machine.  27 ft Contender or my jet ski..decisions, decisions.  I would be funny to win the Jolly Mon on a jet ski.

By the way, IF you don't have Sea Tow you should get it.  It is the second best purchase you can make.  The first being fishing gear from the OIFC.  However we have SeaTow membership packets at the OIFC.

"Stream class report" | Real-Time Update | 04/29/12
 

We had a nice day on the water today. The swell running offshore was aggrav ating but fishing weather was great. Bad news is scattered weed was terribl e; it was tough fishing, constant work. The class worked together to mainta in a spread of 5 lines. We picked a couple small Mahi before the large Mold craft Marlin lure on the inside rigger was hammered. The fish took a lot of line and fought hard, never showing. Butch Meyers angled while the crew wo rked lines as they boated a very nice Mahi- 30# class. As we were resetting I noticed 4 small Gulls circling and then something floating caught my eye. It was big, maybe some sort of broken up raft that had large unfinished timber and rope. Anyway, it was on. We made a pass and doubled with another Mahi in the 30# class and the Cow. Another boat came up on us and would you believe stopped and began jigging the debris, totally pushing us and the fish off. Bad eticate! We caught a couple smaller Mahi and moved on. Through the rest of the day we boated a few more Mahi amidst the unrelenting weed. We did not have a bite from any other species. The floating debris made the day as were lucky to find it. The class did well and certainly learned how to work lines compliments of the scattered grass.

"Gulf Stream School Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/29/12
 

Captain Brant and the members of his Gulf Stream Fishing School fished just off the Scarp today catching many mahi, two of which weighed 34#, and 34.4#.  Brant said he found what looked to be an abandoned raft made of logs lashed together, floating and started fishing around it.  That's where they hooked up to the biggest bulls.  He said the fish were typical mahi and hit almost everything they threw at them.  Brant ended by saying the scattered weeds were bad.

The school members were:

Butch Myers of Black Mountain

Lamar Singletary of Charlotte

Jamie and Shane Wallace of Mooresville

"Inshore Slam again?" | Get Busy | 04/29/12
 

Yep my crew did it again. I appriciate this group of guys making me look good. They fished hard and made it come together. The Tubbs inlet bite has not turned on like I had hoped it would. Last year I caught over a hunderd flounder in Tubbs by now.  I took a good look at the inlet and it won't  be long before it closes up. You can't get into the east side backwaters at low tide now.

"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!

"Fin fun" | Real-Time Update | 04/27/12
 

Sometimes we all wish we could be a dog. I have a feeling that Fin will mak e us all jealous for many years. He seems to have taken on the role as OIFC mascot and is all ready quite skilled. Come visit Fin and Mac at the OIFC.
