Some scenes of the Andrews crew today offshore. Fished 80 feet for jumbo sea bass reaching a limit in relatively short time. Lost count of how many were released. Also did battle with hungry AJ's.

Join us at the Carolina Wing Company Saturday night July 6th for UFC 162!! There as always be great food, a super bar and a lot of OIFC staff and friends. I had the fish taco last night and it was to die for. It's not just a chicken wing place. They have fresh local seafood..some of which I helped catch. I may have eaten the mahi pictured below last nite.
I may get in the dog house with Capt. Jeff Williamson, but I am used to being there with somebody. Jeff has been catching the heck out of fish even though the conditions are not the best. I asked him why last night and he said he was using live shrimp. Which brings me to remind everyone that we now sell live shrimp!
Capt. Jeff Williamson's charter just landed this flounder using live shrimp from the OIFC!
Newest episode of OIFC No Limits TV fishing show aired yesterday. It is an episode based on the Jolly Mon with some really cool coverage of the tournament. Check out this and past episodes:
That's right. Once you cross under the Little River bridge the ICW begins to become fresh water so it can support catfish. I haven't got a bream or crappie report.
Below are pictures of what Team Snooky's/The Law do when the ocean is too nasty to go king fishing. Pictured are Jeff Drake & Reed Todd age 7 of North Myrtle Beach and one of the catfish they caught. Reed is a tough cookie to fish in the rain we had yesterday. Behind the camera is Captain Michelle Drake of Team Snooky's and Captain of the Getaway Adventures Dolphin Tour Boat based out of Little River. Getaway Adventures is a proud sponsor of Team OIFC.
Thanks for the report Captain Drake. It warms the OIFC's collective heart to see young people fishing. If ya'll have any stories supported by pictures please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I had the chance to settle a bet between brothers. I took the older boys in the morning and the younger boys in the afternoon. We did alright both trips with some smaller redfish and trout in the morning, but the afternoon the larger reds turned on.
Getting ready for the 4th of July. Stars a and stripes. I'll make stars out of the anglers and the fish well they'll supply the stripes. I'll even throw in some red,white and blue with Elizebeth's first redfish. Samantha's first black drum and mom Sandy's black drum. The next day Paul caught a slammer sheephead.
Even with the tough wind conditions and downpours of heavy rain. We have managed to find some fish willing to eat what we offer up. It makes it a little sweeter when we catch the "Inshore Slam" Flounder ,Trout and Redfish.
The weather conditions continue to work against us. Most of the surrounding waters are brown with freshwater runoff. The wind and waves continue to pound the surf zone bringing lots of silt in the backwater on an incoming tide. Afternoon showers continue to add to those issues. Today ended with some wicked weather. It is going to be interesting to see how the water looks in the morning. This past week was hit or miss...the hits were great. Here are a few of the hits from this past week. Thank you all for choosing the Captains here at the OIFC to put you on the fish. See ya on the water!
The OIFC now has live shrimp for $7 a dozen.
As Bubba said in Forest Gump: Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. Forest, Have you ever been on a real shrimp boat?
Forrest: No, but I've been on a real big boat.
The OIFC Rodeo Leaderboard was updated today with a few changes in position. Picture 1 is of the Leaderboard & 2 is of Mrs. Doby Sauls' 3rd place trout. Congratulations Mrs. Sauls.
The family and I just got back from a great vacation to Big Pine Key. We had some awesome guests to tag along to, Austin Aycock and cousins CJ and Alex Barbee. We all caught many different types of fish! The fishing was incredible, we caught anything from snapper to snook. And it was fairly easy, the fishing was a lot different than it is here but it was a great learning experience for all. We had a gret time and it was an amazing place!
Had the oppurtunity to take out some of the crew from Becks and Ellas today along with my wife Shaun and nephew Caleb. We had a boat load with a total of 10 people.. After hearing the slow fishing reports and rough weather we were on the fence last night and thought about maybe going to the island instead but, my wife the die hard fisherman conviced me that the crew would enjoy catching anything.. Off we went cought bait between tubbs and shallotte in 18 ft of water and headed towards the 90s caught a nice spanish there and missed 2 more runs. Katy Bart wanted to catch a dolphin so bad and wasnt to impresed with the spanish so we moved off to deaper water and ended up in 80 ft. I let a couple lines out with big pogies and seconds later a screamer hit but when we got him to the boat i saw the fat tail and pretty teeth of a beracuda ..Lines back out and it wasnt long after Katy got her wish with her first ever dolphin. Picked up another cuda and then had a king run and tail whipped us after about 15 seconds into the fight... Got really bumpy so we decided to ease back after picking at a couple sea bass . A fun time on the water with these guys
