"Stick Slinger" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/31/13
 

Capt. Jim Bowen of the Stick Slinger sent us this report:

Capt. David Cutler and I were catching Cobia on Saturday morning, and decided to run and check out a few spots for kings.. we were in 47’ of water and running @ 45 mph and I saw something busting the water 3 times.. I stopped and in a matter of seconds, the Stick Slinger was wrapped up with a school of 50-75 huge Red Drum. They had some cobia mixed in I estimated @ 45-50lbs.. we pitched Pogies to the cobia but they kept getting inhaled by the reds. After catching and releasing 4 Reds, they were gone.. It was an awesome experience to share with my 9 yr. old and good friends..

"Widespread" | Hail Yeah / OIFC | 05/31/13
 

I got a chance to hop on board the infamous "Widespread"  with Nesbitt Noble, Eddie Julian and Gregory Lane on a grouper mission.  We loaded up with pogies on the west side of Shallotte Inlet in 12' of water and were on our way by 6:30 am.  Our goal was to see what was biting in 100' of water.  We tried several areas picking up a couple of scamps and feeding the 3-4 pound seabass.  Around 11:30 the bite picked up and we caught 7 more scamps and a gag.  The bite lasted about an hour and shut back down.  We did not see any kings, cobia or mahi and the scattered weed would make trolling difficult at best.   

The good news for tomorrow is the opening of the seabass. The seabass were thick and it was hard to get a live bait passed them.  Seabass are a ton of fun to catch and a great way to introduce a kid to bottom fishing.  Stop by the store before you head offshore and be sure to pick up plenty of hooks, sinkers and squid. 

Good luck

"Mahi" | Real-Time Update | 05/30/13
 

Capt. Derek and I headed offshore this morning with Mike.Seraffin in search of Mani. At 120 feet and 76 degree water we deployed our spread. Five minutes later the right long rigger bait was hit and the fight was on. About 30 minutes later we released a.30-35 lb jack. Not to be discouraged, we con tinued to work the area and were rewarded with a box of nice.mahi.

"kings and cobia" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 05/30/13
 

My wife and I went out today looking for kings and cobia or something to get our string tight. We found bait easily around hog inlet but went through 4 different pods looking for upgrades but they were all small baits. We headed out to around 70ft and set out the spread of double flounder bait pogies and it wasn't long before we had a cobia chasing it down..Shortly after a king skied on the flatline and took off.. My wife never saw the fish but heard it and said " now that's a king" we got it to the boat let her snap a picture with it and released it for another day.. We caught 2 cobia and 2 kings and a Spanish all of which were released other than the cobia .... Had a good time on the water with my beautiful wife and home by 4 clock to clean the fish ..

"Filming of OIFC No Limits Fishing TV Show" | OIFC | 05/30/13
 

Today I auditioned for the new TV program on ATMC "OIFC No Limits Fishing" staring Captains Brant & Barrett.  I'm not sure how the tryout went but I was told "Don't call us...we'll call you".

All was not lost though.  We had a blast catching several nice cobia and playing with amberjacks, and I took some pretty good pictures. Ya think we caught this cobia on a yellow buck tail tipped in squid.  Also if you have issues gaffing...use the Capt. Brant method and pull them in the boat by hand.

I've also posted some pretty cool videos on our Facebook page.

As always..keep the pics and reports coming to me at sunset69@atmc.net

"From Our Valued Friends" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/13
 

In the 1st and 2nd picture is Scott Hamilton and the 45lb Cobia, and 28lb and 20lb kings they caught  Sunday on Menhaden in 85ft of water.

From Dr. Jay Murphy....

I headed to the 100/400 with George Macon and our 10 year olds Daven and George for their first adventure offshore. We put lines in 4 miles inshore of numbers and the first and only line out was nailed within 30 seconds! First Mahi for the first 10 year old! It wasn't long before the other had his first. At one point we had 4 on and landed all 4 with the greenhorns handling the lines and gaffing by themselves, out of necessity! The craziest event of the day was seeing 5 birthday balloons drop straight out of the sky in front of us- crazy because it was my 10 year old's birthday weekend. We picked up the balloons and I realized the song "Happy Birthday" by Cracker was playing on the radio. AMAZING coincidence there! It was a great day for us dads and sons. Smoothest ride out and in ever for me. 12 Mahi in the box!!
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FROM THE OIFC!!!!!!
 
Ya'll keep your emails coming!!  You can senf the stories and pictures to me at sunset69@atmc.net
 
Thanks again!

"Sean's Alter Ego" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/29/13
 

Sean (Josh) Morris, Emily Ward, and Ed Morris ventured off in the “Chilln with the G’s” 19’ Carolina Skiff on a nice flat day to the 90s on Tuesday morning, May 28th and grabbed some nice cobia. Used some OIFC chum and some Purina Dog Food and Chicken Livers to mix up some nice chum for the Tiger Sharks who came to check it out. Soon after the Cobia were there too. Fished for about 2 hours (done by 1100) and caught three nice cobia on buck tail jig with squid and King rig. Plenty more there but ran out of ice and had to head back in. All in all not a bad small boat day for a few hours of fishing. Exciting time for all!

This report was written by Sean Morris' Dad.  For those who haven't me Sean, he works in the store at the OIFC.  Sean's alter ego is Josh and he prefers being called Josh.-Capt. Rickey

Thank ya'll for the very informative answers. I know sometimes when questions like mine are asked on message boards they are bombarded with bad comments. Thanks for the help and It looks like we have a great weekend to fish. I hope everyone comes home with full coolers this weekend.

Sean 05/30/2013

Ross, When I said the 90's I was referring to 390/390. It is about 9-10 NM S-SSW from the Shallotte Inlet. We set anchor over bottom structure in 54-56 ft and started to chum. The GPS coord we used is N33 44.251 W78 25.453. Sean

Ben Speir 05/30/2013

Ross, the 90's is short for loran coordinates 45390, 59390. Roughly 10 miles due south of the OIB west end high rise condo. Go get em.

Looks like a great day on the water. Nice catch! I have a rookie question. I am new to the OIB area and have done mostly inshore fishing in the cape lookout area. I have a 21 ft carolina skiff dlv and i have been out to the ar's near shalotte inlet. when I see guys on here talk about the 90s, are you talking 90 ft of water, or is this a gps coordinate? and if so are the any reefs, wrecks, or spots out there? any help would be appreciated. thanks Ross.

"Local Action" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/28/13
 

A few pictures I received of local action the past few days....Fishing in the Long Bay area has been hot to say the least.

The 1st picture is of  Nesbit Noble who is an excellent tournamant fisherman from Ocean Isle Beach.

The second picture is Chris Johnson who reported: In keeping with the chatter on the fishing report website, we {Chris and Clark Hammock} also had a big time with the Cobia at 390/390 yesterday. 90lbs in the box by 11AM. One citation at 41.5, a 30 and a 20. All caught on dead bait king rigs from with cigar minnows from OIFC.

The third picture is from the Salty Daze who reported:  Salty Daze headed to the 90's today because of a report the OFIC put out a few days ago, and as always they were right on the money, the Cobia were there. Thanks for all of ya'lls help and keep up the good work. Pictured,Tater Bug and Christy Staley and a cobia

The inshore guys are not going to be left out of the action.  In the fourth picture Tommy Helms reports: 

It aint a record but i'st a start ! Went to catch some tiger minnows yesterday, and afterwards Greg and myself were able to snag a pair of flounder, trout and a blue or two Inside. Fishing has not realy turned on inside like I would like and the reefs are smothered with sea bass ( The indangered spcies ) . We will keep trying inside and maybe they will turn on.

The fifth picture is Michelle Drake & "Little" Billy Berg, 1/2 of Team Snooky's/The Law and a mahi they caught Monday.

Thanks to all for the reports!!!  Keep them coming.  You can email them directly to me at sunset69@atmc.net

Three of our family members attended Brant's king fishing school this past weekend. We have been king fishing the past four years with some success. Brant told us the focus of the class was to improve on our techniques and hopefully, come away with a better understanding of what it takes to prepare and fish with confidence. Captain Brant did a great job of teaching and keeping us all busy and involved. We had a great experience. Many thanks to Captain Brant and Derrick of the OIFC staff.





"stream report" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 05/28/13
 

Left out yesterday in hopes of putting Kristin white who is like a sister to me on her first dolphin.. We arrived at the 100/400 and saw Capt Nesbit Noble on the Wide Spread hooked up... we set lines out and it was'nt too long before we hooked up to a nice dolphin . Kristin fought the fish to the boat and I Gaffed it for her first ever dolphin .She was like a kid in a candy store smiling ear to ear. We worked our way over towards the blackjack and picked at them all day including a wahoo and a blackfin in the mix .. we had a complete siren alarm with 4 rods going off at one time as we hit a number just inshore of the blackjack.. With plenty of meat in the fishbox we left around 3 pm and headed in to some bottom in 100ft and landed a nice 40lb cobia to end the day.... Great day on the water.. My wife and I are going out Thursday for cobia and to find the kings.. Fishing is good now so get out there. HOT LURE today was the fishizzle brass head red and black skirt and the fishfinder tackle 3 oz lantern...green and orange colors

"Flounder Tournament?" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/28/13
 

The flounder bite has really heated up just in time for the tournament this weekend. What tournament? The Fisherman's Post Flounder Tournament hosted by Fisherman's post but held right here in our backyard. Visit www.fishermanspost.com for details about Ocean Isle's Inshore Challenge held this weekend out of the Ocean Isle Fishing Center.

Here is a picture to get you all worked up. I picked away with several questions trying to get the best information about this fine catch. Information was a little vague as expected with a tournament on the horizon. The Lefler family is known for their awesome floundering abilities. See you fellows on the water!

The bait has arrived and the flounder have followed. Menhaden bait pods can be found anywhere in the waterway between the OIB bridge and Sunset bridge right now. These larger baits are perfect for targeting the bigger flounder. Come on out and join us.

"Memorial Day wknd" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 05/28/13
 

Was a busy one at OIB and the OIFC. During the spring we inshore guides get a little spoiled. Being able to fish our favorite docks along the ICW with little to no boat traffic. Well come a holiday weekend and wow forget that. It's sitting in a giant washing machine. So it's time to hit the spots  we have'nt hit in a while. I also took advantage of some calm seas to bust out some real nice spanish mackeral outside Tubbs inlet on the falling tide. Working the tide line in about 25 ft of water useing a #1 planer and a green and silver 0 clark spoon. On Monday we ran back into Tubbs just in time to bust out some flounder and nice drum.

"OIFC on TV" | OIFC | 05/28/13
 

Big news for Team OIFC. Capt. Brant and Capt. Barrett have a new television show that airs on the local ATMC-TV channel. The show is called OIFC No Limits Fishing. It runs Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 2:30pm and 7:30pm. The plan is every 2 weeks will be a new episode. It began playing last week. The format of the show is a discussion between Brant and Barrett of the current fishing report and forecast. Then guests from around the area are brought in to discuss their recent experiences on the water. Lastly each episode has an on the water film of a fishing adventure with Team OIFC filmed and edited by Chris Campbell of Campbell photography. The episode airing now includes a Bluefin tuna adventure. We have a lot of modifications to make the show more complete and entertaining but we are very excited for this opportunity and hope you'll check out the show. It's very important for the folks at ATMC to hear from the public if No Limits Fishing is a program you enjoy. It will go a long way towards keeping the program on the air and potentially opening other doors to a larger viewing audience. You can drop ATMC a line about No Limits Fishing at ATMCTV@atmc.coop. Or you can go to the ATMC-TV website and click on the program guide and rate No Limits Fishing.

"Inlet buoys" | OIFC | 05/27/13
 

Boaters using Shallotte Inlet, beware the green cans going out the inlet have moved and are in the wrong place. Best to use the reds as your guide as they appear to be ok. As soon as we can, we will try to move the greens back where they belong.

Lockwood has a green buoy in the center that looks out of place. You guys would know better than us weekend guys. Best the inlet has been in years. Would think this would be a priority over the random boat safety checks.....which seemed to be in full go mode this weekend. Thanks for all you guys do.





"Cobia on fire" | OIFC | 05/27/13
 

This is the first year I can remember in years[and maybe ever] that the cobia are so thick you can actually target them rather than incidental catch. Two best techinques:

[1] go to any of the wrecks/reefs/king mackeral rocks and anchor and chum. Put one chum bag on bottom and one on top. The cobia will come to you. From there pitch a live pogy or pinfish or anything you have alive[crabs/eels/ect] and they will eat. Or you can tie a balloon onto your rig and float it behind your boat. They will also eat a jig tipped with a squid or gulp. You may also catch kings/big spanish doing this.

[2] fish the pogy schools. We are seeing more pogy pods than I can ever remember seeing. Congrats to the NC Marine Fisheries guys for finally closing netting throughout the state and thanks to the NC Legislature for showing the MFC the way by passing legislation several years ago to stop netting in our Brunswick County waters. Net some pogies from the school and then take a spinning outfit with a standard king rig and pitch the bait into a pod. Freel spool the reel and the pogy will swim with the school. Since he is "injured", he will be the target of a predador fish; cobia/king/shark/spanish/bluefish. Somebody will eat your bait. We are seeing the cobia working the pogy pods so give this a shot for cobia.
