"More S.H.A.R.E." | Do Work / OIFC | 07/22/14
 

 

Marcus Dening and the crew of the "Screaming Decon" caught this nice king in 80 ft. deep wated.  The fish swam up to check the boat out, they tossed it a pogey and he jumped all over it.

Thanks for the report Marcus

The other picture is of Jonathan Staley and his king taken during the SHARE Tournament

"Great day with the Wilsons" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/22/14
 

The day started off absolutely gorgeous with light winds and cooler than normal weather. By the end of our trip the East wind was blowing near 20 kts. making things difficult. Ronnie landed our first keeping flounder first thing in the morning along with a few short fish. Sandra found our first redfish and some more short flounder. As the conditions got worse the fishing seemed to pick up. Sandra busted another nice flounder while Ronnie struggled to get two really good bites to the boat. Ronnie finally stuck the hooks in a short fish. We made our final move and found some trout to complete the Carolina Slam. Sandra also found another nice flounder, bluefish, and a ladyfish. It was great just spending time on the water and catching a few fish with these folks. See ya on the water!

"Team OIFC follow up" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 07/21/14
 

Our King Mac that we were headed to the scales with yesterday ended up weighing 37.14 pounds. We finished 2nd behind Intercoastal Angler who won the event with a 37.4. Congrats to their team. Also great job to all the OIFC team boats who weighed-- Toby Russ and the Mr Goodhands/OIFC crew finished 7th with a 32.5, Do Work/OIFC had a 23.5, Choice of Two/OIFC had a 24 and Sea PA/OIFC had a 21.9-- great job and thanks for the strong effort. Brayden caught his first Sailfish yesterday. He is fired up. He has been all over me for the past month about wanting to catch a Marlin. This wasn't an exact fix, but it did simmer down the fire a little. While catching the Sail he made sure to remind his mother and I that his birthday was coming up and he was told he could have a Marlin necklace if he caught one- not much gets by him. Yesterday was one of those magical days that keeps you coming back. We have been beat, soaked, wind burned, skunked...... many trips. However on this one we hit it just right with weather and incredible fishing luck. And thus through all the trials and tribulations of fishing, particularly competitive fishing, the highest high, is just slightly higher than the lowest low and so we will go back again in search of that feeling.

"The Wrong Flatfish? Fun?" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/21/14
 

When the action is slow thank goodness for a stingray or two. Stingrays aren't the most glamorous species, but they sure will tug on your line. It is just plain fun to tangle with one of these to test your arm strength and your gear. We did find a few of the right flatfish for the dinner table and released a few reds. Live mullet on a carolina rig is getting done. See ya on the water!

"Team OIFC adventures" | | 07/20/14
 

Brant, Barrett, Amy, Caroline and Brayden joined forces again this weekend to compete in the SHARE King Mackerel tournament out of Wrightsville Beach. The weather was as good as we have seen this year- slick calm seas. And..... We had a good day of fishing. 4 year old Brayden released his first Sailfish and we are headed to the scaled now with a decent fish. It may not be a winner but it's a good fish and we are proud of it. Stay tuned for the final report on how we do. Capt. Brant McMullan Ocean Isle Fishing Center

"Working Hard for those Smiles" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/20/14
 

Plenty of small nibblers out there to keep you busy baiting hooks. Flounder have been providing some good action. Redfish have been hard to find at times, but once you do it is game on! Speckled trout have also been scattered around providing some headshaking action at times. Mullet minnows are thick as fleas in the waterway. Pogies have made a better showing the last few days as well. The bait is thick and the predators can't be too far away. Some trips we find a few, others we don't find them at all, and then others we can't shake them off the hook. Live mullet have been my favorite bait on a carolina rig lately. Soft plastics in white and chartreuse colors will also work well. Gulp 4" mullet cruly tails and Bass Assassins sea shads are great alternatives to live baits. See ya on the water!

"Mayson" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/19/14
 

Mayson is a young man who is a great and loyal customer of the OIFC.  He lives on and fishes Wilmington St canal regularly.  He sent me this picture of 2 flounder he caught on Capt. Rickey's Custom Flounder and Red Drum Rigs on a recent outing.  But, he also caught a keeper flounder in an empty crab cage too.

Thank you for being an enthusiastic angler, & a loyal customer.

"Return of the reds" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 07/19/14
 

Since the hurricaine  came thru I have been scratching my head wondering what happened to the redfish. Well I keep looking and found the in a creek down south and some docks in the ICW. We even caught on with a SCDNR tag. Awaiting news back to see when and where this one was tagged.

"week of the doormats" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 07/19/14
 

What a great week to land a trophy flounder. It is still a thrill for me to take someone that doesn't get the chance to fish but maybe once a year and catch them a citation size fish. Check out these two the 8.20 and the 6.30 doormats these guys landed this week. I can honestly say it never gets old.

"Last Saturday" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/18/14
 

Capt. Don LewisIII and Team Spec-One crew Travis Detter and Kevin Hales landed this 85 lb wahoo near the Christmas Rock Saturday.  The huge fish hit a pogey on a down rigger resulting in a hour and 20 minute fight on 20lb king tackle.  Just as the 85 lb'r got boatside it shook the hooks loose!  Capt. Don almost went overboard but landed a gaff shot before the monster wahoo could swim away.

"Old guys rule" | Get Busy | 07/15/14
 

We had a split charter today where I took the old dudes and Capt. Jacob got the young guns. With a bad storm hanging over our shoulders all afternoon we stuck it out. After a miserable morning of 25 + knot winds and almost no fish bites we hit it in the afternoon. And with a change of tide they bit. This inshore slam topped of with a Nice 8.20 flounder.

"Need a First Mate?" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/15/14
 

Aaron chose to treat his sister Lindsay and mom Daun to a half day of fishing. Lindsay was the first one that I met and immediately I felt comfortable that this trip was going to be fun. Aaron showed next and immediately cut a joke about his mom. Oh yeah! This is going to be fun even if we don't catch any fish. I met Daun last and I would happily adopt her as my second mom. This crew showed true family love the whole trip. Well, it was all fun and games until Aaron crop dusted Lindsay. Thats true brotherly love right there! Trying to make a longer story shorter these two young adults have yet to find their soul mates. I am not sure really why as they are both tons of fun. While Lindsay and Aaron were busy trying to out do the other. Daun was steadily putting fish in the boat. Duan caught four redfish around 25 inches and several flounder with 2 of them around 18 inches. Lindsay drilled a nice redfish and a keeper flounder along with a few shorts. Aaron brought up the rear with a nice red, but he may never live down the fact that he lost a nice flounder right at the boat. I am sure Lindsay will remind him many times for years to come. I really enjoyed my time on the water with these three. I hope we can make it happen again in the near furture. See ya on the water!
