"A First Time for Everything" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/25/13
 

Andy and Sebastian joined me on a very windy morning with high expectations of catching a few fish. The west wind was blowing in excess of 20kts with gust well over 30kts making boat handling very difficult. After some creative anchoring we were able to position the boat just up current of our target. The first live mud minnow went sailing in the wind and missed the mark. Made an adjustment allowing for the wind hitting the mark on the second attempt. Loaded up a second live minnow sending him on a ride. Two lively baits holding strategic positions...tick tock, tick tock, tick tock...are they going to bite? I guess we were a good 45 minutes into the trip before our first minnow got drilled. It was steady action for 2 hours once they got fired up. Sebastian landed his first redfish today. It may have been the first fish he has ever caught? We steadily picked away at the reds battling high winds, missing strikes, breaking a few off, and dragging them over Yamaha motors. There is a first time for everything! I was really suprised how well they bit today with the high winds, dirty water, and strong current. It goes to show, you'll never know unless you go. The near full moon may have been the deciding factor on the bite despite all other conditions today. I had a blast guiding these two guys today! Thanks for going fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"First Backwater School Class..." | Tiberias - 22' | 03/23/13
 

Last night Capt. Jeff and I hosted OIFC's first backwater fishing land class. We dicussed with our 4 class members the importance of the details. Covering topics on best line choices, equipment, anchors, knots, and the importance of shealth in your approach to the fish. This morning we all met at the dock to take the classroom to the water. Mother nature continues to dish out some uncomfortable weather for fishermen. All four guys agreed to getting in a half day of fishing despite the extremely wet conditions. Bob and Kevin were the two class members that I had the priviledge of guiding this morning. We could not have started out in better conditions first thing this morning. The boat was stocked with artificials, clams, and live mud minnows. We made our approach as dicussed in class and hooked our first redfish with in a few minutes. Most of the reds were just below the 18 to 27inch slot and were released to be caught another day. We did manage to find a few slot fish and even upgraded to a nice 24" red to top off the livewell. The rain started to fall. We were determined to get the half day completed. We headed up the Shallotte River to practice our artificial lure presentation. We got a lot of practice with little feed back. One keeper trout did smack an artificial to prove they will eat a soft plastic! The rain had turned into a steady soaking, so we headed back to the dock. Thank you Bob and Kevin for joining our class. I feel confident that you learned many great things from our class today and I am sure we will see ya on the water!

We had a great time! Thanks for taking us out! My father-in-law thought there was really no fish in that inter-coastal until now! You finally helped me prove him wrong!

Rickey is in charge of a full wrap up, but basically the days story for us was perseverance. We prefer live bait but the water was too cold and bait was not around. We had no choice but to head to the fish armed with the standard trolling ballyhoo, jigs and poppers. Different from previous years, most of the Bluefin were schooling at 150-200' down. We trolled for a couple of hours and we did have a planer bait down, but we could not get the bite. Finally we decided to leave our comfort zone and pulled out the vertical jigs; we know how to do it but we don't jig that much and have never done it for Bluefin- our jig tackle is set up for AJs and Grouper, not 300# tuna- but we decided to worry about that if it was a problem. Well, it was as we hooked 9 Bluefin in the next 3 hours. We broke off all the big ones ( after we got our fill ) as our tackle was not big enough. But we boated a 100 pound pup for the frying pan and got plenty of fight from the big ones. We also got an awesome popper bite that I think we have on video. That's the quick wrap up- stay tuned

This was a great time. We hooked up with fish and had a good time doing it. Thank you Capt. Brant and Capt. Barrett for the oppertunity. I looked at the other pictures and I saw some comments saying that they're boat was too small. Anybody can easily trailer theyre boat up there on a calm day and do exactly what we were doing.I mean we even saw Jet Ski Brian out there fishing on his Yamaha Jet ski. The tuna fishery up there is amazing and there was no shortage of ocean life where we were fishing. We saw numerous dolphins and hammerhead sharks, we also saw a small whale. The most impressive thing that we saw was probably the tuna that skyed on the popper, you dont get to see that every day. One thing i didnt see there was junior anglers like myself and i think we need to get more children out and fishing. Not just on the boat but putting in work and reeling in the fish and catching bait and helping out no the boat.





"Spring Time?" | Real-Time Update | 03/22/13
 

Capt. Steele and I are headed out with Taylor Hines and friends toward the stream on the hunt for wahoo and maybe some jigging. Will update when returning this evening. Stay tuned. P.S. I thought the first day of spring was the other day. I feel like I'm on a duck hunt.

Poor Fin looks cold. He should at least get to ride inside the truck!
