The information is being forwarded to Mrs. Diane and Capt. Brant for the payouts. I am awaiting the trophies.
Thank you for all the help in finding Mack. Turns out he wondered into a neighbors garage where he spent the night. I think he was hot on the trail of somebody cooking hot dogs! He was found this morning and came home with an attitude like, "What dad! I knew what I was doing". He's since received a stern talking to, an introduction to his new fenced area and yes, a hot dog. He's happy.
~~Mack has gone missing today from his home in Bent Tree. He has likely followed someone, found a dog friend, or gone to check out the waterway. If you are local to OIB, please keep an eye out and share this page. Thank you for your help
Just wanted to put out a reminder that this is the last weekend to use your Captain Club Points. Use 'em or lose 'em!
~~The Catfish are biting! Amber and her husband Mitchell Fortson, from A+ Heating and Cooling of OIB, caught this nice fish Tuesday after a long day at work! They were fishing with live minnows, in brackish water, near the Swing Bridge in Little River.
Thank you Amber! Sge actually wrote the report herself. Isn't "cut and paste" great!????
Please keep Capt. Brant and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he undergoes surgery on his right heel at Duke University tomorrow.
~~Santa brought Camdyn an OIFC rig bag for Christmas. I wish he would have included the rigs. I came home only to find Camdyn going through my rigs picking out the best. It won't be long until I'll have to ask to borrow my boat!!!!!!
Captain Rickey's Annual Christmas Spec-Tacular Trout Tournament began with 30 degree weather and very competitive anglers all after the coveted name on the Master Angler Plaque and winner take all $700 purse. One team's day began terribly with trailer trouble. The other teams were greated with a trout bite that shut down after about an hour and half fishing, as is always the case, the bite was hot yesterday,
The winner, Clay Morphes had left to prep the Award Dinner at his house. He did not know he had won. So, anglers being anglers, devised a cleaver prank. Brandon Sauls text Clay and told him "a guy from Lake Norman named Wyatt had won". Clay bought it hook line and sinker. So at the dinner I presented Wyatt Clark with the winner's $700. I asked him if he had anything he'd like to say. Wyatt then told the group that Clay had won and it was all a prank. Clay's face was beet red. SUCCESS!!!!
The night was filled with food, families, children running around and stories being told. Another success. Clay is the Captain Rickey's Annual Christmas Spec-Tacular Tournament for this year joining Brandon Sauls & Brian Richard on the Master Angler's Plaque. It will start all over next yea on the weekend after Christmas. Congratulations Clay, thank you to all who participated and a special thank you to the OIFC for the fishing report and the use of thier scales and dock. A huge thank you to Clay, Dr. & Mrs. Morphis for the wonderful meal and evening at their home on the Shallotte River.

Awards dinner at Morphis house at 6:30pm on Saturday night- Clay said it was OK to give out his address and that he had bought more food than people could show up- so, come and enjoy a great dinner and celebration in honor of Capt Rickey trout tournament winner and the end of 2013. And of course thanks to the Morphis/Pork Chop family for the hospitality.

Planning on a Sea Bass trip tomorrow to stock up the Wing and Fish Company with fresh fish. Looking for 1-3 people to catch all the fish they can stand, take home their legal limit and buy the fuel for the trip. As we are now supplying the Wing and Fish Co in Shallotte with all their fish, this is a new program I am hoping to offer more. You win- catch fish, take home fish to eat and learn: We win- fresh fish customers
late notice but if u want to get on call me- 910-367-2945
As the Bait Commander it is my duty to notify everyone that the shrimp season is over. WE WILL NOT HAVE ANY LIVE SHRIMP. Our shrimper made 4 pulls today and got 6 shrimp. He said the water was too cold. As soon as the season returns we will have shrimp again. Thanks to everyone for purchasing them and bearing with me as we fine tuned the operation!
Here's the deal on the Trout Tournament. There will be a Captain's meeting in the parking lot of the OIFC at 6:30 pm Friday night. You don't have to be there but I need $50 per person before the tournament and as always you will be responsible for any information covered. You can fish from a boat or from a bank. Lines are in at 7am Saturday and weigh in is at the OIFC Dock AT 4pm. The heaviest trout wins and it's winner take all. Your name will be placed on the Tournament Plaque at the OIFC. Clay Morphes is putting on a spread at his house on Riverbend Rd. at the Shallotte River. You can start showing up as soon as the tournament is over. Clay will have Bar-B-Que, fixin's and berverages. Everyone is invited, fishermen, wives and/or girl friends or both, hisbands and children. Clay would like to have a crowd for fellowship in the fishing community. You don't have to fish to come. Clay is a great cook and loves to entertain in a family atmosphere.
This isn't a Fishing Center Tournament. So PLEASE don't call and wear the employees out with questions they can't answer. You may leave $50 in cash in a sealed envelope with the clerk at the OIFC, but again they can't answer any questions. I think I covered everthing in this and previous reports. It's a friendly competition with someone winning some money and bragging rights. As Clay put it "It all about the food and beating Brandon". Let's keep it simple & fun. If you have any questions ask them in the comments section of this report that way I can answer them for everyone.
Let's fish, eat and enjoy each other's company..Thanks. FISH ON!!!!
The OIFC and Team OIFC/Do Work's Amanda must have been a good girl this year...Santa brought her a Yeti full of coal. Hmmmmm, maybe he knows her better than we thought.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM THE OIFC CREW!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAPTAIN BRANT FROM EVERYBODY AT THE OIFC!!!!!!!!
