Corey Bellamy owner and Catain of the OIFC/Choice of Two, Cape Horn took Trask Cunningham, Caleb Hardee, Jordan Sullivan and Cole Synder out today. The crew came to the OIFC to weigh their biggest wahoo. It came in at 65.80 for 1st place in the OIFC Year Around Rodeo.
The redfish bite has been entertaining lately. A few black drum and sheepshead are starting to bite as well. The flounder are here and it is possible to find some good fish in the creeks. I have throughly enjoyed the last few trips as several ladies have joined us on the water. Too often wife's let their men go out and enjoy this great sport with out them. Ladies there is room out here for you. The scenery is often breath taking with sea turtles, deer, dolphin, and bald eagles joining us on occassion. Oh yeah! We will get you involved with the fishing experience as well. Just ask these ladies! See ya on the water!
Below are pictures of Nesbitt Noble and his son Collin. It appears Collin will be steping up to the scales right along with some other local anglers' children,
The 3rd picture is of Dr. Jeff Wallen and his son with 2 very nice flounder they weighed for the Rodeo
Today was my birthday and I had a chance to fish with two of the best fishermen in Ocean Isle - Rube and Brayden McMullan. We caught 4 redfish ranging from 10 - 20 lbs. If you need a mate you need to bring Brayden onboard. He can flat out entertain you! Great times!!

Inshore fishing guru Capt Steve Prevatte died this past weekend from a hear attack. Capt Steve always had a smile on his face and a good fish story to tell when he pulled into the OIFC dock. He will be missed by his fishing friends at OIFC. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

This is nothing official, just observations.....the mullets have it figured out, the yellow butterflies have it figured out, the calendar has it figured out: I'm betting with this northeast wind laying out tomorrow and Saturday that the Kings figure it out and show strong at Lighthouse Rocks and maybe the River Channel. It's fall on the Carolina coast and he magic is about to begin. Come on down!!
This isJim Moore of Whiteville with the inshore slam today using live finger mullet.
Mr. Stapf joined me with three lovely ladies from the big state of Ohio this morning. It was an extreme high tide this morning with the full moon. We found a few reds and some sheepshead first thing. We made a move to find those 30 inch reds that had been biting. The weather was perfect and everything looked exactly right to get the bite. We were unable to highlight our trip with a 30 incher today. We did manage to slide around the corner and find a couple of nice flounder for the dinner table. Thank you Phil, Pam, Angie, and Katie for fishing with me! See ya on the water.
Below are pictures of John Sweeney and his 20# red he caught at the Jetties on live finger mullet As well as Sam Wood and his drum he caught surf fishing on cut mullet. Looks like there's action for any type fishing you do.
As Rickey's report says...the bite was hot yesterday, horrible today, but probably on fire tomorrow. Too bad the only day you could fish was today. There is no doubt most of us have experienced that kind of fishing. The Little River Jetties were red hot this past Saturday. Sunday was a different story as only a few were caught. Monday we killed them in the Shallotte inlet, but I could only muster up one fish there today. The action should get a little more predictable as this cold front pushes on through. The bait is as thick as ever and the fish will show up! See ya on the water.
The annual Bay Creek Classic flounder tournament is coming up in a couple of weeks. Check them out at www.BayCreekClassic.com
The tournament is hosted out of Southport and fishing is traditionally excellent -- take a look.
Just like fishing...it was great yesterday, sorry it's terrible today and red hot tomorrow. That's what happened to us, we fished the one day the wind was ripping out of the east.
Then yesterday the bite turned on again. Below is a picture of Hackney Parker of Belize with an oversized red drum he caught and released.
Team Do Work hit the back waters on our trusty 2000 Yamaha powered Polar, the "Tale Chaser". We were in hopes of getting in on some of the Red Drum action at the Jetties, but the wind had other plans.
With a live well full of finger mullet we elected to stake claim under the Sunset Bridge. All we caught was a nice blue crab and a clam. Looks like we may need to hone our in shore skills.
But Camdyn wanted to keep them both, announcing she was going to eat them for supper. Capt. Jeff (daddy) explained to her that if we killed the crab she would have to eat it. We don't kill creatures just for the fun of it. She enthusiastly said she was gonna eat it. Look at the pictures below. This young lady not only wears Salt Life. She lives it and loves it!!
