"Gulf Bound" | OIFC | 10/20/14
 

What'd you today?  I stared at a windshield from before the sun came up until long after it went down.  917 miles and 6 states later I arrived in my favorite redfish location, Houma, LA.  Stephanie and I are fishing a tournament down here on Friday and Saturday.  Somehow I got suckered into doing a solo mission getting down here and prefishing and then she'll come in on Thursday.  For the next three days I'll be on the water scouting for the perfect tournament fish.  The slot is 18-27" so the target is a 8lbers.  This tournament is the end of the year Championship with the IFA (www.ifatours.com).  The big trail I fished this year was the HT Elite Series, but I couldn't pass up an opportunity to come back to Houma after having been here earlier this year.  No rest for the weary.  The wake up call is coming early and it's off to the bayou!

"Follow Up" | | 10/20/14
 

As I reported this morning, Capt. Stan and I took of on a 6 hr adventure with Ed Vogeler and his party. After catching bait just off OIB we headed out to 45-50 feet of water to see if Kings were still in that range. After about 30 mins with no action we moved out to 60-65 feet and it was game on. The kings were concentrated on schools of bait and on each pass it was double and triple bites. The action continued with several fish skying on baits and some even chasing baits toward the boat. Several fish missed baits or just broke us off but the ones pictured found their way to within gaff range. A great day of fall fishing with a great group of guys.

"Great Fishing with Great Folks" | Tiberias - 22' | 10/14/14
 

One of the coolest aspects of my job is getting to meet great people from all over our country. I had the great honor of meeting an extremely nice family this past Saturday morning. The Shankle family are down home good country folks from South Carolina. In fact, they have even shopped at my wife's grandmother's store in Dillon, SC. It is a small world after all. Game plan A was immediately shut down with a stiff westerly wind. The plan was to get back on that huge school of Spanish Mackerel we had found Friday morning. The wave action was just two much for my crew, so we headed for the calm backwaters. Andy Shankle booked this trip for his dad Winfred Shankle who is in his 70's. I will tell you that he doesn't look a day over 50 and still climbs under houses everyday installing air conditioning systems. Andy just wanted me to take care of dad and catch some fish. Margaret his wife, said fish would be nice, but flounder would be best. The weather conditions forced us to flounder fish and that was a good thing. Our first stop provided Winfred with a North Carolina citation size flounder hitting the scales at 6.36 pounds. See the full story in this week's Brunswick Beacon. We went on to catch every major targeted species in our backwater. Our redfish was too small to keep, but we still got to see one. Flounder, trout, black drum, sheepshead and redfish gave us a complete backwater slam! Great memories! I couldn't be more honored to be part of it! Thanks for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"The Mack Attack" | Tiberias - 22' | 10/13/14
 

Jay Godwin and his daughter Grace joined me this past Friday looking to get in on the fishing action. We hit the beach hitting the mehaden bait pods in search of a bull redfish. After patiently drifting through a huge bait pod we finally got a hit. The rod bent steadily until it reached the point of drag stripping off the reel and then popped up. Missed! Pretty sure that was a redfish bite. We made an adjustment and drifted back through that pod. A 4 pound bluefish ripped it. We made one more long patient drift through that huge school of menhaden and Grace hooked up hard. Grace made quick work of a solid 36 inch redfish. We made a few more drifts, but the bull redfish action was slow. We headed for deeper water and found a huge school of Spanish mackerel. Two other anglers were alreeady there catching them on the fly rod! We quickly deployed our Clark spoon spread and instantly hooked up on some fat 20 inch Spanish mackerel. It was just too easy on the troll. We started tossing lures at them and connected on several more nice Spanish mackerel. We worked up an appetite, so we headed for Inlet View Bar and Grill for lunch. After filling our bellies with great food, we hit a few spots in the backwater finding flounder, black drum, and croakers. It was a great day for a father and daughter to spend together on the water! See ya on the water!

INSHORE FISHING REPORT- Capt. Jacob Frick

 

 

The stiff westerly winds put a stop on the beach bite(Oct/5). We attempted to find bait on Friday, but it was well off the beach. We tucked tail trolling our way back for spanish. We found a few spanish, but quickly ducked back into the inlet finding calmer water. The backwater is still providing good action from flounder and some nice redfish are prowling around. See ya on the water!

OFFSHORE FISHING REPORT- Capt. Brant McMullan


I can honestly say that I have not seen the King Mackerel fishing as good as I have seen over the past two weeks in many years. This past Summer was a disappointing season for the Kings as they never seemed to congregate or be consistent anywhere. I made a comment at the time that either the fish are gone for good or we are in for a very good Fall. The latter seems to be true. I believe the Kings have changed their Summer patterns, and we fishermen have just not figured it out yet; that's the bad news. The good news is that many more Kings get to make their annual migration into the nearshore waters of Long Bay, and we are here waiting on them.
Fairway Ledges, Cape Fear Ship Channel, Yaupon Reef, Shark Hole, 65' Hole, Jungle, Lockwood Inlet, Shallotte Inlet, 90/90, Jungle... The list goes on. I know for a fact that 30+ pound Kings have come off all of these spots in the past week, and I also know that there have been Kings being caught at every spot I know of, and in good numbers too. It certainly revives my hope that the population is healthy to see this number of fish in this many different places. So what does all this mean for the Fall Brawl? Tie extra rigs, get some rest and then close your eyes and pick a spot on the map and hope that spot has the biggest fish. Good luck to all and we look forward to seeing you at the Fall Brawl!
