"Snead Family Returns" | Tiberias - 22' | 08/27/14
 

The Snead family fished with me last year in the pouring rain. We picked up several redfish last year despite the conditions. This year the conditions were beautiful and we couldn't ask for better weather. We headed for a flounder hole. Mom and Dad were on fire with the short fish, but their son Logan stayed patient pulling in two 16 inch keepers. We hit another flounder hole as the tide ran us out of our first spot. Not much more going on with the flounder for us. We headed for a red drum/black drum hole finding one 21 inch redfish. It was time to move on looking for better action. We headed to an area that I have caught just about everything at some point. I pulled out the small hooks and ultra light gear. We worked the croakers and black drum over pretty hard. Charles was fishing with my 5 foot ultra light outfit when something larger than expected hammered a live shrimp. It was awesome to see such a little rod bend to its limits and line screaming off this small reel. All at the same time nerve racking as all Charle's could do was hang on. After seeing the fish roll several yards from the boat and watching the fight unfold, I knew Charles had a nice redfish on the end of the line. Charles landed a solid 23 inch redfish several minutes later with a sigh of relief and then celebration erupted. Every one on the boat will remember that fight for years to come. After seeing that fight, Logan and Aimee just had to get another one for themselves. Logan got  a solid 26 inch fish and Aimee polished our day off with a 22 incher. Great day on the water! First picture is our bounty from last year, note the ponchos. No ponchos this year! See ya on the water!

Capt. Jim Bowen submitted this picture of the seafood buffet he and his crew of the "Stick Slinger" caught.  Jim called & I missed the call.  Soon as I talk to him I'll add the particulars.  That is unless Jim wants to do it in the comment section.

"Jessica's first Redfish" | Tiberias - 22' | 08/26/14
 

Delane and Jessica joined me for a day of fishing this past Friday. We started off looking for flounder. We got a few bites and landed a solid 17 incher for the dinner table. Delane really wanted his wife Jessica to catch a redfish. Delane said that he had caught plenty of reds in the low country of South Carolina, but has struggled to catch any reds in our area. We made our move to find a few redfish. It didn't take long for a redfish to bend one of our rods. Jessica made quick work of a nice 22 inch red. The action was pretty steady in that area with us finally picking up a couple of upper slot reds. We made a move to another redfish hole, but the black drum were thick. Few large black drum have been around so far this year. Most of the black drum were around 13 inches. We did finally put a 14 incher in the boat for the dinner table. These fish are supper fun on ultra light tackle. See ya on the water!

"OIFC BRINGS HOME THE GOLD" | Do Work / OIFC | 08/23/14
 

~~Checks and Tropies is the story for today. Me, Jeff Beck, and Stephen Tracy Lanier fished the Sheriff Ingram's Flatfish Roundup tournament and ended up placing 1st place Overall, 1st Place Calcutta, and 1st Place High Roller putting $1,800 in our pockets. Not a bad payout for a day of fishing and dodging storms. I would like to thank two key sponsors - Rickey Beck for providing our team with Capt. Rickey Snag-less Carolina Rigs with Ultra Stealthy Invisa-Line and most importantly the Founding Fathers of the United States of America which our team represented today!-Bonecrusher


Team Bonecrusher Do'ng Work For Team America consisting of OIFC Pro Staffer Brandon "Bonecrusher" Sauls, Capt. Jeff Beck and Crew Member of Team OIFC/Do Work joined forces to bring home the gold in The Sheriff Ingram Flatfish Round Up with a 5.62 lb flounder/19 lb aggrigate.

What a switch.  Bonecrusher cut his teeth as an off shore fisherman and Capt Jeff started as a flounder fisherman winning several in shore tournaments as Team Hook em Up.

They didn't bring home gold, but $1,800 ain't bad.  Congratulations

"Continuing the Journey" | | 08/22/14
 

Well, in honor of the Griswold family tradition, we are now visiting Dolly World. "Sorry folks the park is closed." We are riding all the rides and seeing all the shows. We are having a big time, but it is a bit tough to see the fishing getting so much better and to be so far from the coast. I'm ready to hear the reel scream from a big King Mackerel!

"Fish biting- boats open" | | 08/21/14
 

Well, just as the fishing is finally getting good, the charter boats are getting available. Our crews have hustled all Summer to make action amidst conditions that have often been less than great. But we managed and by most accounts, I'm certain 9 out of 10 would recommend fishing with us. HOWEVER- the fish are finally biting- Kings and Wahoo namely and we ARE NOT booked up. We have availability this weekend. Don't discount the inshore guys too- The big Bull Reds are starting and that's a bite not to miss! Call us at 910-575-3474 to set up a trip. Let's go fishing!!
