"Slow but steady" | Get Busy | 11/23/12
 

The trout bite was anything but on fire on this black Friday. The fish bit on the falling tide early this morning but quit when the tide stopped and began to rise. I checked around some creeks and talked to other fishermen about live shrimp. GONE they are. So break out the gulp and beat the oyster bars and catch you some.

Dr. Jeff Wallen and crew braved the elements yesterday and had a big day on the trout.

"Capt. Rickey's Annual Christmas Spec-Tacular Trout Tournament" | Get Busy | 11/15/12
 

I proudly announce the 2nd edition of our Trout Tournament.  It will be held December 26th..same as last year.  The rules are the trout must be caught the same day as the tournament and must be weighed in at the OIFC.  In the event of a tie the 1st fish will win.  The weigh in time will be from 3-5 pm..subject to change.   The $50 entry fee must be paid in cash.

This is a winner take all tournament. Last year Clay Morphes put on one heck of a feed the night of the tournament.  The OIFC has nothing to do with the tournament but I thank them for the use of their dock and scales.  Any questions ask the Executive Committee.. Me, Brandon Sauls or Clay Morphes.  It's a laid back tournament meant for fun money and bragging rights.  Clay has provided us with a plaque.

Everybody join in for a fun time and some pretty big bucks!

"It's Trout Time!" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/14/12
 

The weekend weather was grogeous bringing out lots of fisherman and fishing pressure increased tremendously. Derek and I got out on Sunday afternoon catching a hand full of trout and a 20 inch flounder. I got out Monday for a little while and things had settled down from the weekend. I picked off and released several trout. I also found a good school of reds. Today had its own new challanges, approaching front, new moon, and strong tidal flow. We caught most of our fish as the tide was turning at high tide today. As the current picked up speed it made things difficult, but we picked at them. We managed around 15 trout and a dozen reds with a solid 26 incher in the mix. See ya on the water!

"MIA" | Get Busy | 11/13/12
 

Sorry I have not posted any fishing pictures or tall tales of 40 + trout trips. If you know me and have ever showed up to fish with me wearing an Ohio Buckeye or Iowa Hawkeye shirt you know the conversation at some point during the day we are going to end up talking hunting. I love to hunt deer. So when a guy I took 4 yrs ago said come on up and hunt with me in Ohio I took him up on it. Keep in mind this is public state land with a Mathews bow and arrow. I was unable to hunt with Rick Hughes during the week because of that 4 letter word W-O-R-K but he told me of this spot up on a hill that I needed to scout. It took me about 10 minutes to zero in on this 11 point 225 lb Ohio white tail. At first light I noticed a deer giving me the stare down at 40 yards. All I could see was ears it was so dark. 10 minutes we were locked up,could'nt move. The 11 pt walks up the same path I walked up and stopped at 12 yards in a shooting lane I had cut. Thank god a chipmonk ran behind the other deer which turned out to be a small 6 pt. long enough for me to draw my bow and make the perfect shot on the 11 pt. After a 3 hour wait we got on the trail and found my biggest buck to date with a bow. Thanks again Rick.

"Resurfaced" | Get Busy | 11/13/12
 

Our good friend and local in shore super angler Tim Gallimore has finally resurfaced.  And he did it in good fashion.  Attached are a couple photos from his Sunday's adventures. With Tim are Steve Miller and Ryan Boltz. We had a "load" of trout caught near Shallotte Inlet on his custom Tim's Chicken Woodpecker rigs.  Tim is forever finding innovative ways to adapt to the local fishing habitats.

For those who are trapped north of the sweet tea line, a "load" in a unit of measurement in the south.  It is just short of a "boat load".

Thanks for the report Tim and we expect to see you in the "Captain Rickey's Christmas Spectacular Trout Tournament."  We'd like to see as many people in it this year as possible.  Details will follow as soon as the Executive Committee finalizes the plans.

"Cool Fishing Adventure" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/13/12
 

Victor Jones sent the OIFC this tale of his recent fishing adventure.  It's well worth reading.

Captain and boat owner Richard Hodges, Birk Ayer, Alex Rodriguez and I took the BroadBlue 42 catamaran sailing/fishing south from NC to FL bucking the edge of the gulf stream. This is the reverse trip than we have taken in Mays past. We loaded supplies Saturday in Beaufort, NC and initially anchored nearby in the ocean about 1/8 mile west of the last dunes at cape point Cape Lookout, marginally protected from north and east wind. We were waiting on the wind to turn some and blow harder out of the north. In the mean time we took the dingy over to the beach to spend time on the beach with a bunch of our friends for the afternoon and great fireside dinner.

We pulled anchor Sunday at midnight to head south and east to be on the continental shelf edge by late morning. When daylight came we had 20+ kts out of the NW and 12ft following seas. We put lines in and fished anyway…….that’s why we were in that location. We caught the head of a Blackfin Tuna, the head of a large False Albacore, one half of a very large False Albacore ( it looked like it had been chopped in half with a meat cleaver) and we eventually boated two nice Wahoo about the same size (see picture one) both north and south of Steeples which is 50 miles or so off Cape Fear. When the Wahoo was being fought Richard would fire up both diesels in full reverse to slow the boat speed from 9kts down to around 3.5kts. Heavy two speed 50 wide reels with 100lb line set to maximum drag were the standard set up. Most fish were caught with 6 oz lead head dark skirted wire trace ballyhoo rigs pulled behind heavy trolling weights 32 or 48 oz. We barbequed Wahoo steaks Monday evening on the boat for dinner and knew on day one we would definitely not go hungry for the rest of the trip……….there would be no rice and beans only meals. We were headed for shelter at Raccoon Key, which is near Cape Romain to hide from north Gale Force Winds associated with the big Noreaster that came through after Hurricane Sandy.

After sailing through the night, we waited on anchor for a day off the south facing beach protected from the wind and far away from the center of the Gale. We set sail Wednesday before daylight headed back to the gulf stream. We caught about a dozen large False Albacore before we got to the stream and then picked up some Mahi Mahi and one more Wahoo (see picture two) near 226 hole off Charleston on Wednesday. Sailed through the night on Wednesday. Did not have much luck in Georgia and northern Florida on Thursday with sharks and one Mahi. While the fishing was skinny I feel confident we caught more Wahoo than anyone else on November 5. In 500 miles we did not see one sportfishing boat. Thursday night we made our approach to St Augustine arriving at the sea buoy at first light Friday morning. We drove back to Charlotte Friday afternoon.

We sailed hard and caught some nice fish. Had fresh fish everyday Wahoo steaks, Mahi fillets, Mahi sushi, Ceviche etc. And have some fish in the freezer. It was a pretty amazing.

"Thank God" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/13/12
 

Below is a report from the Windy Conditions Fishing Team taken during the SKA Nationals a couple of weeks ago.  The Choice of Two is Captained by Corey Bellamy of Calabash, N.C.  Capt. Zach Faulkner (Get Floored) told me he thought the bilge pump on the Wellcraft went out and then they took 2 waves over the side.
It was rough in the gulf on Saturday. This was a 35' Wellcraft. Choice of Two rescued the crew thank god.
And from Patty Hughes, wife of Froley Hughes:
The boat that sank at the SKA Nationals in Biloxi MS on Saturday. Corey Bellamy's team CHOICE OF TWO resuced the 3 Lousianna fishermen, as much equipment as possible, and then did what the 3 wanted-kept fishing with 9 people on board in much less than perfect conditions.
Corey Bellamy and the crew of The Choice Of Two are heroes in my book.

"Kings At The Atlantic Ledge" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/11/12
 

I posted 1 pcture of these guys on the "real time" portion of the Report.  Here are a couple of more with better shots.  At least the best we could do with the subject matter...Just kidding guys.

This is of the father-son team of Timmy and Allen Hinon, fishing the "Miss Reagan".  They limited on kings by noon.  They were fishing the Atlantic Ledge in 66 degree water when they struck pay dirt.  It was good news to find out the kings are still around.

Thanks for dropping by and letting us get some pictures.
