"World Cat" | | 06/09/15
 

Yesterday Capt.. Sean and I ventured to the Gulf Stream in hopes of finding a few Mahi. On board was Erroll Sherrod and his son Lucas. We knew that the Mahi have started moving to near shore waters recently, based on out catches of them while king mackerel fishing, but I felt that if we located the bait we could find some fish. In about ared 120 feet of water we started seeing large amounts of flying fish and we deployed our spread. The first hour was relatively slow although we did have a couple of knockdowns. As we ventured a little bit deeper I started marking suspended bait. We then had our first mahi. We continued to work this area and it played off. We caught several real nice Mahi. Patience and persistance was the game plan. Great job by Erroll and Lucas.

"Sharks, Spanish, Blues" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/07/15
 

The nearshore action right along the beach front has been red hot with plenty of bluefish, spanish, and sharks willing to bite. There are some really nice sharks out there that will really stretch your line. Look for the bait pods and drop a bloody fillet down in the bait pod. Hang on! Most of that action is happening in 30 feet of water our less. To our East around the Yaupon and Oceancrest area the King mackerel have been biting around the pogy pods in 30 feet of water or less. A few Cobia could and should be hanging close to these bait pods as well. How do you locate the bait pods? Look for the PELICANS! They will most likely tell you where the bait is. As you get close look for the flips or a dark purple mass in the water. You should see the bait flashing up to 15 feet deep. The water has been clear and clean out there. For those that can venture a little further offshore. The 10 to 15 mile range has been seeing more action for Cobia, Spadefish, and King mackerel. The 390's, Sherman, and the Shark hole have all produced action from these critter. Plenty of cannonball jellies to scoop up just outside the inlet for the spades. See ya on the water!

"Backwater Action" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/07/15
 

The bait of choice has been small menhaden that have finally started to consistently show themselves in the waterway flipping in front of the Ocean Isle Marina. If you are heading toward the Shallotte River they are also flipping in the waterway in front of the Holden beach canals on a regular basis as well. The flounder are the main ones taking an interest in the little menhaden fished on a carolina rig drifted or slowly dragged along in an anchored position. Deeper holes 6 to 8 feet at lower tide levels have been producing some decent flounder. During the higher tides 2 to 4 feet of water around docks, slick muddy spots around oysters beds, and sand bar edges with hard current is where the fish are most likely hanging out. Redfish and trout are also taking an interest in the little menhaden around the docks and submerged oyster beds. Same carolina rig will work, but do not move the bait. Black drum are also hanging around deep holes with hard structure near by. Fresh cut shrimp or live shrimp will work for black drum. Live shrimp or blue crab chunks will also increase your chances at catching a red drum in the same area as black drum. See ya on the water!

"Redfish Tournament Time Again" | OIFC | 06/06/15
 

Back at it.  This time Brant has come along for the adventure.  We left out of Wilmington yesterday and flew into New Orleans.  From there we picked up the boat and truck and made our way down to Delacroix, LA.   The second seasonal event begins this coming Thursday out of Gulfport, MS but today and for the next few days we'll be scouting around south Louisiana looking for tournament quality redfish.  The mission within the mission is shooting another episode for No Limit's Fishing Show.  Today we had perfect conditions.  Light winds, bright and sunny skies should mean excellent fishing.  Unfortunately they didn't get the memo.  We covered a couple hundred miles of shoreline today hoping to find a large body of quality redfish.  It wasn't to be.  We did find scattered fish all day but nothing that really had tournament potential.  Some of the fish we caught were really good size but there just weren't enough of them.  Tomorrow we will change zip codes and fish an area known as the Biloxi Marsh.  It's all about covering ground.

"99# wahoo on The LAW" | Do Work / OIFC | 06/03/15
 

~~what day we had...sometimes all you need is the sea, salt and sun! 100 lb wahoos are just a bonus! The part that made it best was it was just jeffie and I! We went through 2 dozen ballyhoo, put a pile of fish in the box and the daymaker, well possibly career maker wahoo on the deck! We broke a rod fighting a dolphin, still landed it, went with an even lighter rod than we were using but the fish didn't know and caught the big wahoo on a sea witch and flourocarbon! A huge thanks to Vito aka Mr. Leila Vitale from the Myrtle Beach Yacht Club for helping us get the wahoo out of the box and in the cart! Cant wait for fall to do it again!

"Much Needed Salt Fix" | Do Work / OIFC | 06/03/15
 

Sunday was our 1st trip since Nanny Bird passed.  We needed it.  Jeff, Jeremy Phillips and I braved some bumpy seas to make it to 750 ft deep water to try botttom fishing.  The 1st drop yeilded a nice snowey rouper.  Since we had 3 crossfitters on board we hand cranked it up.  Whew!  Next drop yeilded a golden tile.  You guessed it, we hand cranked that critter in too.  We then decided to pull up and troll our way to the Blackjack.  Before we got there we had 3 nice mahi.  They seemed to love crystal meth skirts.

Then we pulled in lines and headed for home.

Jeff & I needed that time away.  Saltwater does heal.  Thank you everyone for your kind words and prayers

"Nearshore report" | | 06/02/15
 

I recently received some constructive criticism requesting more news on nearshore action - "Less than 70 foot" was the title of the email. I admit we could be guilty of just reporting on the glamourous stuff offshore and maybe not giving the nearshore enough credit. Sorry for that. Glamour is relative to the size of the boat I suppose. I Spanish fished yesterday and caught plenty just outside Shallotte Inlet in 18-25' of water. There were Spanish jumping all around, but they were not biting near as good as I would have thought with all that I was seeing. I tuned in my spread to #0 chartreuse spoons on 30' of 20# leader and #1 planers and did better. I also found them to be a little more active around the Pogy schools outside the inlet although I was seeing the jump randomly all over the place. On another note, there were several Pogy schools outside the inlet and a couple of them had BIG fish in them. I came onto one pod that had a group of a dozen 20 pound plus Jack Crevalle cruising through them. That is some fun fishing - they fight like crazy. I did not see any Cobia, but there has to be some around. There are certainly plenty of Sharks under the schools. Speaking of Cobia, we are starting to see more of them in 50-65 feet while King fishing. The Kings have been biting good in this depth on live and dead bait. We are seeing lots of 5-10 pound Kings with a few bigger- Lighthouse Rocks, 90/90, Shark Hole and Jungle have all been good. And that's the nearshore report. I leave the inshore stuff to Jacob and Jeff. I'm looking for them to chime in with their news. Capt. Brant McMullan www.OIFC.com (910) 575-3474

"Woke up to a Calm Ocean" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/02/15
 

Woke up at day break to see calm conditions. It is the end of the school year for my 7 year old son, so I decided to keep him out of school. You don't get too many days the ocean is that calm and you don't have something else going on. Jake and I caught blue fish, spanish, and sharks until our arms hurt. The menhaden were thick in about 35 feet of water with sharks, spanish, and blues feeding on them hard. I am amazed nothing else was there, but it was still lots of fun to watch my son freak out on all the action. Great day on the water and memories that will forever be fresh on his mind. See ya on the water!

"Mahi fun" | | 06/02/15
 

I assembled a willing crew and we set out for glory yesterday. I wanted to find the east side of the stream. 135nm later we found it. The edge was not made up very strong which is what I was hoping for. It pretty much looked like the edge on our side and the fish pretty much acted the same. I had visions of fish begging to jump in the boat. It was a slick calm day and relaxing, and that was nice. Been there done that!
