We just got back from fishing Venice, LA. Weather was great and fishing too. You can't believe the number of Yellowfin Tuna that cross the docks down there. That trip is coming soon; this trip was kingfish tourney. We got in on a hot bite 70 miles West of Venice. We weighed a 44.15 and finished around 8th or so I think? We caught 25+ fish on Sunday which was pretty much max efficiency with Brant, Barrett, Amy, Caroline and Brayden all turning handles and keeping lines tight. We continue to learn and there were a couple fish missed that I would have liked to see that were missed or lost. Caroline and Brayden both agree they "love" Venice. We were all exhausted but I think they would have been ready to go fishing if we could have stayed.

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 08/06/13
 

Capt. Jeff Williamson reported a good flounder bite inside this morning. A glimmer of hope that things are picking up for the flounder on the backwater scene. The redfish bite remains steady and are the #1 target on our charters. We have boated some nice flounder and trout as we have been searching for the reds. The backwater is still dirty from freshwater runoff, wind blown surf, and constant boat traffic making the bite difficult at times. Regardless of these conditions, this is what we do for a living and we work hard to find the fish. Here are some of the highlights from the last few days of action. See ya on the water.

What do you do when the wind keeps you from getting offshore? Just ask young Taylor. Here he is showing off his catch of black drum and flounder he caught near the Shallotte river on the World Cat. Great job Taylor.

"Pro Staffer's Report" | Do Work / OIFC | 08/04/13
 

Last year at the First Annual Cy's World Tournament my boat was raffled off and bought by Liz and Bob Newell.

Today I took them on their trip and we managed to catch 4 - 5 trout at the jetties before running offshore flounder fishing.

Within 1 1/2 hours we had 7 keeper flounder  - top three fish were 5.4, 4.7. and 4.6 pounds.

-By Capt. Brandon Sauls

 

The 5.4 was caught by Liz Newell

4.7 by Bob Newell

4.6 by me

"Blisters To Prove It" | Do Work / OIFC | 08/04/13
 

This jack crevalle was caught at the 70ft hole along with five kings.  The angler was Holden DelosSantos of Inman SC.  The other youth angler is Boyce Waters of Wellford Sc.  The boat was captained by Frank Waters.  This jack was Holdens first and the battle lasted upwards of an hour and has the blisters in his hand to prove it.  It was the first kings caught by Boyce and the boat, Frank Waters owner of the new 2013 Sea hunt.  Thanks to OIFC for the info to where the fish were holding.  Thanks from Renny DelosSantos, captain of the Dirty Girl, Jolly Mon regular.

"At Last!!!!!!" | Do Work / OIFC | 08/03/13
 

At last, great weather and beautiful seas with some fish added in.  This is the 1st time the OIFC/Do Work has made it out without getting our"rear ends" handed to us by horrible seas.

Today we fished with the OIFC's 1st Mate and Dock Master Ben Morris.  Ben is a new addition to Team OIFC/Do Work.  Fishing along side us was Chris Campbell.  We started at the 90's but there wasn't a good bite for us.   We saw some boats hooked up,  problem was it wasn't our boat.  So, we changed locations to Christina's Ledge where Chris and the Do Work started slinging some fish.  The hot rigs today were green skirts and a double pogey rig.  Chris was having great luck on his down rigger set right at the thermoclin.

"Wahoo!!" | Real-Time Update | 08/01/13
 

Had a great trip yesterday morning aboard the Carolina Cat. We started our morning catching two live wells full of pogies east of the inlet. We then pushed out to an area that had been producing kings for us pretty consistent the last few days. As soon as we pulled up we noticed that we were not there alone and a couple of the boats already there were hooked up. We set our normal live bait spread and soon got a strike only to lose it after a short run. Our next bite came from the downrigger and ran hard straight offshore. Ms. Mary Kwiatkowski began to battle the fish for a while until her arms were about to fall off from reeling in the amount of line that had been taken off the reel. As the fish continued to head offshore we angled the boat toward him and played a game of give and take. He would give us a little line and make us feel like we were winning and then he would show us that we in fact were not winning at all and take another run. When Mary tagged out to Andrew Horbaly we had fresh arms on the reel and the tide started to turn in our favor a little. The fish settles in to a slow cruising speed about twenty feet below the boat and continued to head offshore. After about a half hour he settled in below the boat and began to plane toward the surface. At first glance we all thought It was one of the bigger kings we have been catching but when he got ten feet from the surface I noticed this king had stripes!! It was in fact a wahoo. He then came to the surface and laid up for an easy gaff shot. He was put on ice and high fives began. Definitely a welcomed surprise to come out of 65 feet of water.

"Just When You Thought It Was Safe" | Do Work / OIFC | 08/01/13
 

Our Tuesday family fishing adventure was not in vain. 
 

It was truly a beautiful day at the beach.  Adam, our ten year old, had caught fresh mullet out in the canal that was the perfect teaser for a this five foot wonder! 


Right as the storm was brewing on the mainland and threatening to shorten our evening fun at the beach, our Beefstick Daiwa with its Penn Pursuit 6000 reel laid down triggering our adrenaline to shoot up!  The battle was on!  We only had about half a spool of line so Greg, our friend from our hometown, ran out with the rod into waste deep water running with the beast to make sure that all the line was not ripped from the spool.  A crowd was gathering and our anticipation was mounting as we hypothesized what would be on the other end of this line.  Shannon battled for awhile and finally we corralled the Black Tip Shark ashore.  The crowd gathered with smartphones and cameras in hand snapping shots as Shannon ran for his equipment to unleash the beast and set him free once again.
 
Although, toward the end, we did get drizzled on a little, it was well worth our trip!

"Sail Fish Catch & Release" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/31/13
 

Misty Tucker fished aboard the Fineboy II with Capt. George Lepper on Saturday (7/27) at the 70 ft hole, hooked a 45#-55# range sailfish, it was magical to watch this fish dance 4-5 times across the water on its tail trying to shake the hook. After a 40 minute fight and retrieving 250-300 yards of line we successfully released this beautiful fish back into the ocean...this was the first sailfish catch and release for Team Fineboy II.

Thank you for the picture and the fine report.

If you have a report & picture send them to me at sunset69@atmc.net..Thx

The Mt. Airy Joyce team is one to keep an eye on. Cousin Ronnie just graduated from a weekend excursion with Team OIFC to Lousiana and learned first hand from Capts Brant & Barrett & Rube everything not to do to win a tourney. Apparently he also learned what to do to have a great catch. Congrats Team Joyce!
