Virginia Beckham took this picture yesterday of Carmine, of Calabash Bagel catching this red drum yesterday at the Little River Jetties, Carmine wanted picture proof because he figured no one would believe him...That's crazy!!!!
The last couple of days have been a little more consistent for me. The redfish in the 22 inch range have cooperated well in the creeks. Bob Diseker gets credit for landing our biggest creek fish this week that was 29 1/2 inches. The flounder are sliding in the inlets and some big fish have started to show up. We are starting to see some speckled trout scattered throughout the area. I have caught a couple on each trip this past week and Capt. Jeff's crew drilled a stud earlier this week. The only thing that has me concerned is the lack of live shrimp. I have cast netted several of my favorite creeks the last two days without getting the first shrimp? A little early for them to start disappearing. The water temperature is dropping quickly as one cold front after another pushes through our area. The water temp in the creeks this afternoon was down to 73 degrees. The fish should be chewing the prop of the motor! See ya on the water!
The OIFC.s Amanda Bennett weighed and photographed this slab of a flounder yesterday. She never could get the scoop on where it was caught...Can you blame him?
Local in shore greats Henry Beckham & his daughter Virginia Beckham proved that the "slob" red drum are still biting at the Jetties. Captain Jacob told me the big mullet are the food of choice if you want to target some fun fish.
Thank you Virginia for the pictures.
Well, it is that time of year. Some nice redfish are showing up at the jetties, but the bite is not in full swing just yet. The next two weeks should really start to bring the big boys closer to the inlets. The mullet are thick and the bigger the better. See ya on the water!
The 2 pictures below are of the Rodeo Leader Board. The 1st picture is the off shore division while the 2nd is the in shore division. I will have the earnings posted in a couple of days.
So I've been taking the Moss family from Iowa fishing for years. Last year nephew Moss put a 5.5 lb citation flounder in the boat on his first salt water fishing trip. This year Ole Glenn and son Dwight landed two slammer reds at 43 and 45 inces and almost added a citation trout. throw in a few flounder and it was a great day on the Get Busy Fishing. You can tell by the photos we covered alot of water on a very windy day. Who says they don't bite on an east wind?
Fishing at the Jetties with me was Dwight Moss
Casey Miller and a king he caught Saturday at the 90's. He also caught and released a sailfish just off the 90's. Casey was fishing aboard the Cape Horn "Hard Knot Life" with Taylor Miller & Michael Miller. They were using live pogies.
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.
