"Rodeo Award" | Do Work / OIFC | 02/07/16
 

Clay Morphis was presented his trophy for the 2015 OIFC Year Round Rodeo for Overall Inshore Champion, 1st Place Flounder as well as the OIFC Leaderboard largest flounder ever weighed in at the OIFC this afternoon at a pre Super Bowl get together.  Congratulations Clay!!!

Clay is also featured in the South Carolina Sportsman for his accomplishment. You can get the TRUE skinny on where and what Clay used in this article.  I can tell you the fish was caught in public waters on a VuDu Shrimp.

The last picture is of the 1st and 2nd place Mahi Trophies.  Congratulations to Mrs. Courtney Gray of Team Beeracuda for winnning 1st place.  The rest of the trophies are being built at the trophy shop and should be ready along with the payout checks at the OIFC by the end of the week.  I will keep everyone posted.

Capt Brant and I have reviewed feedback and will be posting the guidlines for the 2016 OIFC Rodeo shortly.  I hope it will be bigger and better!

"Tournament Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 02/02/16
 

I don’t know about you but these warm, spring-like temperatures have me thinking about one thing and one thing only – fishing. As some of you may know, I recently posted a survey on Facebook and fishing report asking anglers if they would participate in a high paying, high entry, low boat field, king mackerel tournament either in the fall or the spring. Well the results are in and it looks like I will be doing everything in my power to hold another fall king mackerel tournament out of the OIFC. Details regarding this tournament have not been released yet I hope to have format and entry info by the beginning of April. 

In addition to this new event, I will also be holding a Cobia tournament over Memorial Day weekend. Similar to the other event, I have not released any details on this tournament. However, those attending the OIFC spring kickoff this year will receive information regarding this event as well as the option to enter early.

Also, those that did not qualify and have interest about being on the Jolly Mon VIP waiting list please email me at derek@oifc.com and include your name, phone #, and most convenient email address. 

Even though its forecasted to get cold again soon, hopefully these announcements got your blood pumping about the upcoming fishing season. Apparently Phil the groundhog didn’t see his shadow today so maybe we’re in for an early spring? I sure hope so.

"Hot wahoo bite " | Choice of Two / OIFC | 01/31/16
 

~~
All my wife wanted for her birthday was to catch a wahoo...luckily I didn't disappoint...and to top it off, fresh tuna sashimi for dinner

Chris Campbell and wife Robin said the bite was hot at the MacMarlen ledge today. Here's his report to me: Bite on fire at MacScarplen. Got lines in at 8 and left at noon. 3 wahoo and a blackfin, but as usual lost more than I'd like to admit...non stop action, just me and robin, lost a slob right next to boat trying to wire him up, broke the hook in half...will send pics later for fishing report if u want Capt. Brant McMullan

"State Record White Marlin" | Do Work / OIFC | 01/28/16
 

~~North Carolina officials have certified that a Virginia man has set the state record for a white marlin.

Officials with the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries said in a news release Wednesday that Neil Manning of Ashburn, Virginia, reeled in the 138-pound fish Nov. 16 while fishing off Hatteras.

The fish measured 85 inches from the tip of the lower jaw to the fork in the tail. The girth of the fish measured 37 inches.

The previous state record for white marlin was 118 pounds, 8 ounces, caught off the coast of North Carolina's Oregon Inlet in 1976. The world record for white marlin is 181 pounds, 14 ounces, caught off the coast of Brazil.

Manning used live menhaden on a 30-pound test line.

"SPRING KICKOFF- NEED YOUR HELP" | OIFC | 01/27/16
 

I am working to AMP UP the Spring Kickoff this year.  Here is what is on tap thus far:

1- We are making this a 2-day event.  Saturday, April 16th (10am-2pm) and Sunday, April 17th (12pm-3pm)

2-  In-water fish boat show which will feature boats from Yellowfin, Onslow Bay, Freeman and Contender.  Each manufacturer will present their best fishing boat in the 31-34' range with twin power.  These boats will be in-water for display and for demo.  This is a rare opportunity to see the top level center consoles in the same size range, side by side AND be able to ride them.  There will also be additional boats from these manufacturers in the 25-30' range as well.

3- ALL of OIFC will be 20% off.  Clothing, gifts, tackle, marine supplies, bait....  (excludes fuel only).

4- Clearance of 50% and more on select tackle and clothing

5- SEMINARS -- I NEED YOUR HELP!!!  WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE AND HEAR FROM?  AND WHAT DO YOU WANT TO HEAR ABOUT?  COMMENT TO THIS REPORT FOR INPUT.

6- Line spooling from 12#-80# at $.02/yd

MORE TO COME BUT THAT's A START  !!!!

Drew Hall 01/31/2016

Seminar- I'd like to hear about tactic changes for inshore species during the different seasons. Such as speck fishing in the spring vs. summer time etc. Also would like to know more about fishing the nearshore artificial reefs.

Michael Campbell 01/29/2016

Mr McMullan In regards to seminars I could list about a 100 topics because I just moved up from the gulf coast to Fort Bragg and I am trying to learn the area. So my top 3 would be King Fish(who would not wanna hear about that), Cobia fishing(over looked fishery), and throwing a cast net. This is just my two cents worth. Thanks for your time

James Taylor 01/28/2016

I want to hear about venice trips you were planning. Made plans for this Dec. 2015 and Derrick cancel. Boat problems i guess, maybe not enough people or just don't want to pursuit. Did you instead do a blue fin trip in Dec. that was on ATMC?





"VuDu Mullet" | Do Work / OIFC | 01/26/16
 

I recently read a report on Dave Workman's page that the VuDu 3.5" Mullet is a hot product in Florida.  It is fairly new to us but we have it in the OIFC.  Let me hear how it produces for you!!!

"2016 Jolly Mon VIP" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/26/16
 

Thank you to qualifiers and waiting list members who have contacted me about this year's tournament. Once we get a little closer to the tournament (late february-early march) I will be sending all the invitees an email stating  that they are invited and when entries will start being accepted. Reminder - entries to this tournament are non-transferrable unless a captain has qualified twice. Meaning they have placed in the top 30 in both the 2015 Jolly Mon and 2015 Fall Brawl. Then one of the two entries can be transferred. If you are unsure of this check the invitee list that can be found here.

Also, I have been impressed with the number of anglers that have filled out the 2016 Jolly Mon VIP survey. Out of 107 participants, 55% would like to enter a 30 boat, $1500 entry tournament and 76% of the 55% would like the tournament to be in the fall. Whats your opinion? Click the quick and simple survey link below if interested in either of these options. https://www.esurveycreator.com/s/e38b570
