"Lets go fishing" | Get Busy | 04/03/12
 

I had some Got-em-on Live bait club members come down and fish with me today. They did what they know best, catch flounder on live bait. Later on in the day John, Ross and Max went out to get back on some more reds and flounder.

"It's a short walk" | Get Busy | 04/02/12
 

It is a short walk from the outhouse to the penthouse. I'm not going to lie. For 3 hours and 10 minutes this morning the fishing was terrible and I could'nt do a thing about it but keep to my game plan. Talking to friends, other guides on the phone ,I was getting the same story from Little River to deep in the Shallotte River.The last 50 minutes where awesome.  The tide finally changed around 11;30 and the bite was on. What a finish to what started out not so good.

"Inshore GRAND SLAM!!!!" | Get Busy | 04/01/12
 

It  started out a little chilly on the water this morning. We fished holesin the Shallotte River around 8:15 and a balmy 56 degrees. John and Ross Porter are no strangers to the Get Busy Fishing team. Things heated up quick with some spotted sea trout and a nice keeper 17 inch flounder. About frozen John and I made the best move of the day back to the mouth of the river to one of my favorite fishing spots,Yep the Inlet View Restaurant for coffee and a breakfast sandwich for Ross. After thawing out we jumped back in  the boat and we headed south behind Sunset Beach to complete the slam. Iwas not going to give up Ross completed the slam with a nice 19 inch Red and John chimed in with a black drum for the Inshore Grand Slam. GREAT morning with some very good fishermen.

"Inshore Fishing, Tips, and Bait this Week" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/30/12
 

Reports have been consistently coming in that flounder are showing up in several inlets.  Speckled trout are still here, but locating keeper fish has been the challenge. I have caught several trout in the last two weeks, but the average size has been around 13 inches. We caught about 20 trout and two flounder yesterday, again everything was around 13 inches. The redfish have found their typical spring pattern, unpredictable. Capt. Jeff and I have managed to pick a few off with live mud minnows and I have found some live finger mullet. Capt. Jeff and I have a little something up our sleeve for this coming week. I will report back if it works out.

Bait? Live mud minnows are readily available here at the OIFC. Tiger minnows are in the suds along the beach front or you can catch them on the sand bars at low tide near the inlets. Some 4 to 5 inch mullet minnows have stuck around through the winter and can be caught at dead low tide in shallow water creeks. Don't forget that redfish love crabs. This is the time of year that crabs start to molt and get softshells. This the reason redfish get stubborn this time of year. They will key in on the crabs and only crabs! Artificial baits in chartruese, limetruese, and white color patterns have been picking up trout and flounder. April is approaching and we should see all sorts of fish showing up this month. I have caught a few bluefish in the backwater this past week. The bonita should be at the 90's and Spanish Mackerel will probably start to show the second week in April if they are not already out there. A King Mackerel or two will probably get snagged off of Ocean Crest Pier in the last week of April. Stay tuned...as the reports will probably get hot and heavy in the next few weeks. I love it! See ya on the water!

You saw Barrett report about fishing in Charleston; the underlying reason fo r the trip is to compete in the Rugged Maniac event- a 5k obstacle course. Anyway check out who Y and I ran in to. OC is on the water with half day trip. Sea Bass in sure but they are also o n the look for Bonito. I'll report. Jacob and Jeff both have inshore trips. Stay tuned. Capt. Brant McMullan

"Fishing Hard!" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/24/12
 

I fished Thursday and Friday morning during the high tide periods. High tide is not my favorite time to fish. However, in preparing for my trips toward the end of the week, Jake and I went out scouting on high tide Wednesday morning. We had 15 to 20 trout to the boat first hour of the morning. I was feeling good about my trips at this point.

Well, Thursday morning the only thing that seemed to be hungry were the no see-ums. We had a few short strikes and finally landed three small trout. Started hitting some hard structures for red fish, found one 19 inch fish and a suprise 17 inch flounder. That ended our tough morning of fishing.

Friday morning was just as tough. Dodging showers and fighting the no see-ums. I squeaked out 2 small trout and another suprise keeper flounder. See ya on the water!

"Tubbs Inlet you ask?" | Get Busy | 03/24/12
 

Rumors are stirring about the docks about the Tubbs Inlet flounder showing up early. I decided to go see for myself. It is true a few fish have shown up.  Water temps between 65 and 70 degrees. I must warn you. If you have not been in there since last fall take your time. It has filled in and is very shallow.

"Gulf Flounder" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/24/12
 

Captain Chris Dew and 1st mate Derek were chartered by Clay Parker, Jeff Raver, Max Treese, Roger Burloa, Horace Turbeville and Keith Geohagan of Charlotte, N. C. for a little off shore fishing.

What transpired may sound a little fishy, but it's true.  They were fishing the boxcars on the inshore side of the Sharkhole in 69 degree water, when as Keith was reeling in a catch and release sea bass he saw a flounder nail the sea bass.  A marine biologist dropped in and identified the flounder as a gulf flounder.

Thanks for fishing with us guys,

"Quick Charleston Trip" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/23/12
 

Capt Bonecrusher Sauls and I are down in Charleston this weekend for the "Rugged Maniac" fun run with fellow OIB Crossfitters. But first, while the women were shopping we snuck out for a couple hours of inshore action out of Isle of Palms with a local guide. We quickly located several schools of red drum and caught a few fish each up to 10lbs. The last fish of the day was a true tree shaker. Check out the picture of Bonecrusher holding this 75+lb Drum! Holy smokes what a surprise. He was an old creature living in about 2 feet of water. Awesome. Not a bad way to spend the afternoon.

"Back Water Spring Day" | Get Busy | 03/22/12
 

Kevin Sneed sent these pictures of a back water red fishing trip he and Kimber Alford took today.  Kevin said he was using a custom OIFC spinning rod with a Shimano Sahara  which made a perfect in shore combo.

Couldn't have said it better myself.  Thanks for the pictures and the report Kevin.
