"FALL BRAWL" | Real-Time Update | 10/17/13
 

The Williams family and friends joined first mate Ben Morris and myself in an all out king mackerel bite on Saturday. Crew leader Todd Williams and I talked a good bit at the captains meeting about what our game plan was going to be and where we would be going. We came to the conclusion that we were going to catch bait early as possible and decide on where to go from there. On tournament day, we broke the inlet, caught bait, and as always my stubborn ways told me to go South West. For some reason that area has always produced fish for me so off we went. We arrived at the 70' Hole deployed one bait and hooked up. First mate Ben preceded to deploy more baits and before you know it, we were tripled up. We caught around 7 fish before we got our big bite. While hooked up to a Cobia and a smaller king, I asked Ben to reel in one of our baits, put a fresh bait on and drop it way back. Right after Ben did that the line screamed out and we were on. After 20 minutes of Sam Williams' fantastic angling skills, we boated the fish. We kept fishing throughout the day boating 5 more kings and releasing several others. We headed back to the weigh in hoping that our fish was in the top ten. After she hit the scales at 31.45 we were satisfied with our day. We ended up placing 9th Overall, 3rd Lady Angler and 2nd in the Junior angler division. Ben and myself had a blast with the Williams family and can't wait to fish with them next year. Good job to everyone else that fished in the tournament. The king bite is on full blast right now. Come on down ad experience the action.

"More Drum Action" | Do Work / OIFC | 10/17/13
 

My friend & my Farm Bureau Ins. agent Ryan Neuwirth just had to get in on the red drum action.  Ryan is an avid local in shore fisherman.  Capt. Brant couldn't help himself either.  Brant said they were thick on the beach just outside the Shallotte Inlet yesterday. He said drop a 2 oz Carolina Rig with a pogy and hang on!!!

"Kings and Cobia" | Real-Time Update | 10/16/13
 

Capt. Derek and I had the pleasure of fishing a full day trip with Tony Blanton and company aboard the World Cat. After catching bait we headed offshore to 60 feet and as Derek deployed our first bait it was quickly devoured by a nice King. For the next hour it was a challenge to get out a full spread. Kings and dog sharks kept us busy. Boats fishing near us were experiencing the same as well. We reached our goal with the kings and decided to push offshore a bit to look for decent bottom fish. We found good bottom and commenced to boat some very nice sea bass. In an effort to find grouper we headed to even deeper water. It wasn't long before the first rod bent over and everyone was sure we had found the grouper. But to our surprise it was a nice cobia. And sure enough there were more with him. We managed to catch 3 more before calling it a day and headed home. Thanks to Tony and Jim for continuing to be loyal customers and most important, our friends.

"Kings Bitin'" | Real-Time Update | 10/16/13
 

Went out today to 65 feet of water to find the kings chewing once again. They have been holding in the same areas for the last week or so. Today's fish seemed to be more quality than quantity as they didn't bite quite as hard as they have been but I contribute the big moon to some of that. We did manage to pull out a few fish in the mid twenties and one that went 33 pounds. The bite was not red hot but steady all day.

"Fall Brawl recap" | OIFC | 10/16/13
 

Here is a recap of the top 10 fish.  Pretty neat to hear everyone's story.  We all try hard to catch a top 10 fish, but only a few can actually succeed.  So close yet so far if you are not one of the few.  There's always next time.  Congrats to all those who did make the cut this year.

Fall Brawl 2013 recap

 

Place/Weight:  1st- 51.25

Boat:  Final Approach

Capt.:  James Demyan

Crew:  Donald Johnson, Jason Tierney, Mike Williams

Boat size:  33 feet

Location:  Fairway ledges

What fish bit:  long, top lined Bluefish with Bluewater Candy skirt

Time of day:  Saturday, 8:50am

Angler- Mike Williams

Gaff- Jason Tierney

Boat- James Demyan

Story:  The big King engulfed the bait and made a very long, hard run; covering 200+ yards according to James.  The King then turned around and ran straight at the boat, and James reported throttling up to try to move away from the fish to keep the line tight.  Finally after 30 seconds of chaos, the big King settled into the fight.  The water was clear and upon a good visual, the crew knew this was the fish they were after.  Approximately 10 minutes later Jason gaffed the fish and put her on deck.  That was the end of the day and end of any other team’s chance at first place as the Final Approach dominated the scales with the 50 pound smoker. 

 

Place/Weight:  2nd- 38.60                    

Boat:  Team Onslow Bay

Capt:  David Smith

Crew:  Brad Knight, Alan Ambrose, Jeff Atkinson, Paul Green

Boat size:  32 feet

Location:  70’ of water near Hammer

What fish bit:  Double Pogy on short, top line

Time of day:  Saturday, 11am

Angler:  Paul Green

Gaffer:  Jeff Atkinson

Driver:  Brad Knight

Story:  The team had a double hook-up of quality Kings, but their 2nd place fish skied and made it known this was a fish to take care with.  The crew angled the fish as they did a dozen or more 20+ pounders during the day, but this fish netted them a nice payday.

 

Place/Weight:   3rd- 36.55

Boat:  Total Chaos

Capt:  Taylor Henkel

Crew:  Sid Cauble, Hugh Henkel, Charles McClure

Boat size:  27 feet

Location:  Hammer

What fish bit:  Bluefish on top line

Time of day:  Saturday, 10:30am

Angler:  Taylor and Hugh Henkel

Gaffer:  Charles McClure

Driver:  Sid Cauble

Story:  The big King skied on one bait then immediately shot over and bit another boat, hooking up solidly on two rods at one time, thus both Taylor and Hugh were anglers.  The team initially thought it was two fish, then they thought it was a tangle, but upon boating the King, it was evident the King ate both baits as both sets of hooks were deep within her mouth.  The crew reported a great bite of quality fish and said they had 3 Kings over 30 pounds, including a nearly identical 35.2 pounder.

 

 

Place/Weight:   4th- 34.90        

Boat:  Raunchy Conch

Capt:  Cameron Atkins

Crew:  Patrick Atkins, Chelsey Williams, David Griffith, Will King

Boat size:  25 feet

What fish bit:  single, naked Pogy fished on long, top line

Time of day:  Saturday, 9am

Angler:  Chelsey Williams

Gaffer:  Will King

Driver:  Cameron Atkins

Story:  The crew reported an overall slow day of fishing, but time went by without much pain as they had their prize King in the bag early.  They reported the King made one long run and couple of shorter ones before settling into circles before coming aboard.

 

 

Place/Weight:   5th-  34.80       

Boat:  Mr. Goodhands

Capt:  Toby Russ

Crew:  Rusty Russ,

Boat size:  29 feet

Place/Weight:  6th- 34.50

Boat:  Wee Doggie

Capt:  Joey Crisp

Crew:  Andy McKinnis

Boat size:  38 feet

What fish bit:  single, naked Pogy on medium, top line

Time of day:  Saturday, 3pm

Angler:  Joey Crisp

Gaffer:  Andy McKinnis

Driver:  Andy McKinnis

Story:  The two man team reported awesome action all day long as they started at the Jungle and then ended up on bait schools a couple miles offshore.  The team said they caught 32 Kings during the day include 10 Kings over 30 pounds.  This fish skied the bait which made it known that they needed to pay close attention and take care of the potential prize on the end of the line.

 

 

Place/Weight:  7th-  33.45                    

Boat:  Hot Rod

Capt:  Brett Barnes

Crew:  Alan Barnes, Sierra Sharpe, Carlie Barnes

Boat size:  25 feet

Location:  Jungle

What fish bit:  single, naked Pogy on top

Time of day:  Saturday, 2:30pm

Angler:  Alan Barnes

Gaffer:  Brett Barnes

Driver:  Brett Barnes

Story:  Brett and Alan brought along a couple of lady anglers as their designated fish catchers, but by 2:30pm, with over 40 Kings brought to boatside, the ladies were worn out.  Alan grabbed the next rod that went off and after making a little stronger run than the other fish, they crew soon found out this was to be their big fish of the day.

 

 

Place/Weight:   8th- 32.90        

Boat:  The Sweet Life

Capt:  JJ Smith

Crew:  Steve Hondorp, Josh Hondorp, Zach Snavley

What fish bit:  single, naked Pogy on top

Time of day:  Saturday, 10am

Angler:  Josh Hondorp

Gaffer:  JJ Smith

Driver:  Zach Snavley

Story:  The crew fished their 21 foot boat to the top of the 23 and under class.  They reported a good bite of quality size King Mackerel, but their big fish made its presence known with 3 long runs and deep circles under the boat.  The crew reported boating a total of 4 Kings through the day with many other quality fish released.

 

 

Place/Weight:   9th- 31.45

Angler:  Sam Williams

Gaffer:  Ben Morris

Driver:  Derek Treffinger

Story:  The Williams family chartered the OIFC World Cat with Capt. Derek Treffinger and mate Ben Morris as OIFC crew members.  The family fished with Capt. Derek back in the Summer and had so much fun catching Kings they decided to try their hand at tournament fishing.  They are hooked as they once again experienced a great day of fishing, including a top ten fish, a ton of King Mackerel action and a several Cobia to boot as well.  Derek reported the crew was doing battle with a Cobia and a King when the long line was taken by their prize winning fish.

 

 

Place/Weight:   10th- 30.95

Boat:  Blue Ice Bandit

Capt:  Tim Lowry

Crew:  Jimmy Lowry, Ricky Allen, Will Lowry

Boat size:  23 feet

Location:  Jungle

What fish bit:  nake, single Pogy in propwash

Time of day:  1:45pm

Angler:  Jimmy Lowry

Gaffer:  Ricky Allen

Driver:  Tim Lowry

Story:  The crew was enjoying a good day of fishing when they realized they had not put out “Mikey”, their old, lucky rod.  Jimmy picked up the rod and began setting back a bait into the propwash position when the prize winning King grabbed the bait and made what Tim described as the longest Kingfish run he has ever heard.  The team gave chase and after many circles under the boat, the fish was gaffed and pulled aboard.

"Mr. Good Hands" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 10/13/13
 

  1. Nothing like waiting till the last minute to catch a good fish in the Fall Brawl. Not a bite all day and at 4:10 get a smoker on. Thanks to Dad's boat driving and my crew clearing everything out of the way, we were able to put fish in boat and run wide open to make the weigh in by 5:00. Weighed a 34.80 and currently in 5th and first place Junior Angler for Grayson

"King recon report" | OIFC | 10/11/13
 

Yesterday we made a recon trip to look at conditions. Wind was blowing NW 15-20. Flat on the beach. Beach loaded with pogies up and down. Little River Inlet loaded with bluefish and mullets. Water color on the beach not good when we got there in early afternoon but by evening it had cleared up a lot. Water at Cauble Reef[2 miles offshore] crystal clear. Today wind has layed out, maybe blowing 5-10. Water along beach should be clearing on each tide. Yesterday was probably the transition day for Kings looking for the better conditions that are improving now. My guess is the Kings will lite it up today, and tomorrow/Sunday will be the classic Carolina beach bite. Come join us at the Fall Brawl.

I did a solo run out of Lockwood Folly this morning. Went to the AR425. Had five lines out with a variety of bait from ballyhoo to buck tail. Picked up a 20lb king and I thought ...OK it will be a good day.. Next thing I know all five lines are screaming! I ended up with four big red drum in the boat in the 30 inch range. I can't believe I let that fifth one get away. Needless to say being by myself in the boat there was a lot of tangled line and chaos. What a great morning! Steve
