"Shallotte Inlet Dredging" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/04/14
 

The dredging of Shallotte Inlet is underway full steam ahead. At this point I don't have that much info except they are cutting a channel about 15 ft deep and depositing the sand of the beach as part of the beach renourishment project. Capt. Jeff of the "OIFC/Do Work" Contender went out Sunday sea bass fishing he returned on a new moon low tide and said the sand bar outside the inlet was not an issue. The pictures are courtesy of Butch Myers, Jeff Beck & Richie Heycock. Here is a link to the Town of Ocean Isle Beach for more info on this project, the dredging of the Shallotte ICW Intersection and the Concrete Canals. —

Terminal groin project progressing....many many government hoops to jump through.

Capt. Rickey 03/05/2014

Jay I am supposed to talk with Mayor Debbie Smith about the dredging tomorrow. I will try and remember to ask her if she knows anything about the groins.

Jay 03/05/2014

Are they considering groins still? Wish they could anchor the cans better! Thanks for the update.





"Internet Fishing" | Hail Yeah / OIFC | 03/04/14
 

Seems like the weather is out to get us this year.  Just when we think we have turned the corner, we get blasted with another brutal cold front.  Capt. Jeff Beck and his crew were smart, they took advantage of the small window in the weather this past weekend and were rewarded with a real nice catch of seabass.  The only fishing I have been able to do so far this year is on the internet.  I check into the OIFC report about 5 times a day hoping that someone was able to get on the water.  I also have found that a lot of fishing teams throughout the Carolina's have started facebook pages.  So, all you facebook fans can troll around for a little more fishing action.  Team OIFC has several teams with pages.  Check out Hail Yeal/OIFC fishing team, Choice of Two/OIFC fishing team, Get Floor'd/OIFC fishing team and the Ocean Isle Fishing Center on Facebook.

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/03/14
 

Redfish are biting pretty good considering the up and down weather pattern. Some small trout have come out of hiding with a slight increase in water temperature with last week's warm up. Chartreuse colored soft plastics have worked the best for locating trout and an occassional redfish. I expect the trout will shut down again after this cold front passing us this week. Keep in mind that speckled trout are closed for harvest until June 15th. Adding a little pro-cure scent to your favorite soft plastics seem to get the redfish fired up. Remember that the water is cold...very slow to no retrieve will get the bite from a redfish. Join our facebook page to see more reports and pictures. See ya on the water.

"Sea Bass Sunday" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/02/14
 

All the reports and the forecast for smooth seas had me ready to go fishing.  While at Crossfit OIB, I spoke with a friend and he said that he was going to take his son sea bass fishing on Sunday for his birthday.  I told him to meet me at the OIFC and we would run offshore and try to make it a fun day.  So Greg, his son Pierce and Pierce's friend Ethan loaded up on the Do Work with Camdyn and myself. We dodged the dredge and set our sites for 65 foot of water to one of my favorite King Fish spots.  We made 35 mph the entire way.  Once we arrived, we dropped our baits and caught all the 10 to 12 inchers we wanted.  I picked up and moved us about .4 miles offshore and found it to be stacked with 14 to 18 inchers.  So we stayed there and caught all the fish we wanted.  Pierce, Ethan and Camdyn proved to be quite the sea bass catching crew.  Happy Birthday, Pierce!  Hopefully it will be one to remember.

"Bluefin alert!!!" | OIFC | 02/28/14
 

Bluefin alert; well sorta. The word from the salty of the salty-est Bluefin fishermen up at Oregon Inlet is the Bluefin are holding in deeper water offshore of the Point. And historically speaking when this occurs and they don't move into the shallower waters around the Point, the Bluefin will move south and end up from Morehead south, down to the west side of Cape Fear. West side of Cape Fear is us[Shark Hole/Horeshoe/ect]. And today I walked out to the beach and just off the breakers was a huge school of menhaden with Ganents and porpoises working them. SO................... this justifies a Bluefin alert!. If heading off to wahoo fish, if you see the right conditions, throw your Bluefin gear out and be a hero. Everyone remembers several years ago when we were catching more Bluefin off Ocean Isle than was being caught off Morehead. Let's get excited!

"Tile Fish Thursday" | Do Work / OIFC | 02/27/14
 

From the Wing and Fish Company in downtown Shallotte:

How about Tilefish Thursday? And since we missed it yesterday, we'll move Wahoo Wednesday to Wahoo Thursday. The fishing has been very good this week for us and that means good food on your plate! Today for lunch is a wahoo sandwich fried or grilled. Don't get no better than that.

Tonight we are proud to offer fresh off the boat Golden Tilefish. Chef is working up a recipe he calls seasoned sea salt, golden tilefish topped with a scratch made mango chutney. You won't find seafood product like this, well, pretty much anywhere. It was on my hook a short time of ago and now it's on your plate. Enjoy! See Capt. Brant and Brayden doing work on a beautiful golden tile.

"Whoot Whoot" | Do Work / OIFC | 02/26/14
 

Guess what day it is!!!!!!  And a wet one coming the OIFC's way. This gave me time to figure out why this reporter's pictures were orange and get them on the Report.  Here are a couple from Michael Locklear and one of a little cutie from Michael Lee.  As always a rainy day at the beach is better than a clear day inland!  Have a great day & keep the pictures coming.

"Monday Wahoo recap" | OIFC | 02/26/14
 

Jeff and Chance Martini, SC wahoo extraordinaires and OIFC captain Chris Dawson joined me on a wahoo outting on Monday.  Somewhere between the WX forecast and Mother Nature there was some confusion as a 10kt E forecast was really a 20kt SW wind.  Running out was not bad but you could tell the wind was wanting to blow, but we were there, so let's find Wahoo.  We were fuels by weekend reports of good fishing near the Wintag Scarp. I was liking forward to wahoo fishing with Jeff Martini who is known as a wahoo master.  I learned some tricks and maybe he picked up a thing or two.  That is the cool thing about fishing with other experienced people; a great chance to learn new tricks.  We caught a line fish around 9am but didn't find the fish until 11.  The group seemed to have moved further south a few miles, but once were in the area the bites were steady.  We had quite a few multiple bites, and as I've complained in the past, the catch to bite ratio I always experience is less than 50%.  We caught some good ones and lost some good ones.  Most of the fish were in the 35-40 pound range with our biggest around 60 and a couple of WeeHoos thrown in.  Chris did a good job rigging and Jeff and Chance were great entertainment.  Thanks to my crew for the fun times.  By the end of the day we were looking at 3-5' easy, quarter following sea which gave Jeff and Chance an opportunity to wash all the fish blood off themselves.  Once you cross over the 50 degree inshore waters it gets cold!!  Brrrrrr.  The water temp all day was 67.5-69.5.  The water was green.  I usually preach finding warmer water and blue, but as we know, fish go where their food is and there are no exact formulas.  So to all you out there waiting for a report to get you out and moving,aye this is it.  The Wahoo are biting!

"Tardy Tuesday" | Do Work / OIFC | 02/25/14
 

Hahaha..guess I should check my email more often.  Tim Gallimore sent this report Sunday:

Daniel, Bryan, Schuyler, Corey, and I  left the dock around 3:30 Sunday morning with wahoo on the brain. After a 2 1/2 hr ride due South, our first bait was deployed. It took all of 30 seconds for the long line to be crushed by a 60+ lb wahoo. With our first fish in the box before sunrise, our hopes were up that this would be a productive day. We proceeded to boat 7 more before 10:30 am, including going 4 for 4 on an unbelievable quadruple hookup.  With tired arms and a healthy looking sea floor, it was time to hammer the bottom with lead. With a limit of gargantuan Beeliners and Bass, we headed to the hill.  The freezer is full and the 2014 fishing season began with a bang

AND from Captain Barrett and Captain Brant who were shopping for the Wing & Fish Company..:http://Wow, what a weekend. I hope everyone enjoyed all the sports and festivities. We had big turnouts for basketball, UFC and the race all weekend. Thanks! Now onto this week. I have good news. I finally made it offshore, and along with my brother Capt. Brant, nephew Brayden, and deckhand JB was able to haul in another tasty catch. Beginning tomorrow night (Tuesday) we will have fresh catch off our OIFC boats- Snowy grouper! Some of the best eating out there. We'll update Facebook with the daily recipe. We did manage to catch just a couple of the elusive golden tilefish, which if you haven't tasted one of these, you're missing out. We will be featuring the Golden Tilefish on Thursday. Supplies are limited so if you want to give the Golden tile a try, I suggest making plans for Thursday night. Today is All you can eat wings Monday. See you soon

"Teaching Tuesday" | Do Work / OIFC | 02/25/14
 

Chapter 1:  Lady OIFC Employees.  Often times us guys will come in seeking fishing advice and make the mistake of thinking our lady crew members don't know about fishing.  Capt. Amy is a world record holder and fishes the tournaments with Team OIFC.  Miss Amanda is relatively new to  salt water fishing game but has several tournaments under her belt to include winning Lady Angler at the U.S. Open.  Miss Shannon is an accomplished in shore angler.  So don't make the mistake thinking all they know is t-shirts.  The pictures below are of Capt. Amy reviewing cast net throwing with Amanda.

Also, Amy is a Crossfit Coach and kicks most mens' you know what including mine at Crossfit.
