"Inshore slam,triple theat" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 07/13/13
 

I had the pleasure of fishing with Mike Campbell and his daughters Morgan and Brooke out of Wilmington NC this past week. This girls are are going to put a lot of gray hairs on Mikes head, not for the reason you're thinking. They have fishing skills. We started the morning floating live shrimp on the rising tide. Moved on to Tubbs Inlet for some flounder fishing. As the day heated up so did the fishing. We battled some really nice redfish to round out an inshore slam.

"freshwater blues" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 07/13/13
 

Despite all the rain we've had this month the fishing has'nt been bad. When they deside to eat they eat. Being in the right place at the right time can be tons of fun. Floating live shrimp down an oyster bar or bait shrimp in the middle of a creek for black drum provided lots of action for mine and Jacobs customers. In my seminars I preach about keeping blinders off about caring only the bait you caught them on yesterday.  I was throwing live shrimp and mullet minnows at a school of redfish. I dipped into the back livewell and had 8 mud minnows left. They ate every one, go figure. practice what you preach I guess.

"Got'em On King Classic- UPDATE" | OIFC | 07/12/13
 

Got'em On King Classic changed to EITHER Saturday or Sunday format-- pick your day.  Registration closes tonight at 11pm and you must declare by then.  They will have entertainment as planned on Saturday evening and weigh and awards schedule Sunday is the same as was originally planned for Saturday.  Please help to spread the word.  I'll hope to see you at the weigh-in.

The annual Got'em On King Classic tournament is this weekend and Mother Nature AND NOAA forecasting is not being kind -- both of them have been very wishy washy. 

The tournament director of the event has been very diligent in trying to talk to fishermen to discusss opinions and options.  It can't always be a pretty picture, but the show must go on.  If  they reschedule, what are the chances the conditions are worse?  Based on what I see, they could be a lot worse and then you are faced with a bigger problem.  Good luck to all and be safe.

"Black Dog" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/10/13
 

 Bob Newell sent us this report:

//We had a good crew for Sunday, Ian Ballantyne and Will Michalove aboard, bumped our way out to the 100/400, found the break of water changing from blended to blue around 160 feet and a fair amount of bait. Right short exploded with a big mahi on the Lil Stubby lure and after a nice 10-15 minute fight we brought the bull to the boat for gaff, only to be disappointed when the 100 pound leader broke off and the fish got away with a gaff hole in his back, 30-35 pound fish. Later we were rewarded with this teenager cow, she also bit a Lil Stubby, and finally at 2:00 pm another big strike on the blue/ white Lil Stubby, brought the fish to the boat where yours truly planted the gaff pulled him up over the gunnel and when I turned the handle to plant him in the box the gaff hook backed right out, and back to the water he went immediately snapping the leader . So the day was both rewarding and disappointing, we laughed that we were "tag and release old growth dolphinfish" that's about the only thing that saved us from crying in our beers! These were 2 "rodeo leader" class fish and they are still out there! Beautiful day, great to see blue water and get out of the dirty tea colored water we saw as far as 25 miles offshore . No billfish seen but we spent a fair amount if the mid day over the 100 fathom break dragging plugs and some dink baits rigged in circle hooks for whitey or the sail we hoped to find. Bob

Again thanks for the report Bob & thank you to everyone who sends them in and the readers who enjoy out Fishing Report.  If you have a report with picures please send them to me at sunset69@atmc.net

"Got'em" | Real-Time Update | 07/09/13
 

Yesterday Captain Brad and myself started our day by catching "turbo" pogies just outside the inlet. After filling all three live wells in the Carolina Cat we pushed offshore around twenty miles in calm seas to an area just west of the shark hole. We put out our spread and started working the area with little result other than a few dog sharks. We then decided to get back on plane and ride out a few more miles to 75 feet of water. The water looked much better in this range and we were marking good bait in the area so we worked the area pretty hard. We soon found out what was being attracted by the large bait schools when we got our first bite. Soon after the reel began to sing that beautiful tune we all love so much the image of a 20 pound barracuda appeared from the water as he flew through the air behind the boat. After doing battle with a few of these we chose to push on out to 85 feet of water. The second bait in the water there got inhaled by a hungry amberjack and it was on for the next two hours! The school of jacks came to the surface and it was literally like fishing in ripley's aquarium. We caught them at will along with a nice cobia that came up by the boat to see what was going on. Once everyone had enough of the jacks we moved back inshore some in search of a king mackerel to hang out in the fish box with our other victims. We rode back in to an area in 70 feet of water and redeployed our turbo pogey spread. A short while later the downrigger set at 45 feet alarmed that it had a visitor. After a short battle we saw the flashy image of a kingfish roll up by the boat. As a last ditch effort the fish darted under the boat and was able to free himself. After that it was time to head back to the dock. I would like to thank our crew from yesterday. They were great folks and did a great job fighting those big fish.

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/07/13
 

It has been a busy week on the water. The boat traffic has been horrendous as expected for the week of July 4th. Of course this is typically when we hide way back in the creeks, but with all the freshwater runoff we have been forced to fish the waterway areas to find action. The trick is to slow down and try your best to control your water rage. Despite all the obstacles that fishing presents from day to day we manage to prevail and find a few hard fighting fish. Here are just a few pictures from this week's action. See ya on the water!

Rube that's priceless go kids go.

Capt. Rickey 07/07/2013

Camdyn, Caroline & Brayden could not have a better coach than Capt. Rube. After all, he taught Capt. Brant & Capt. Barrett. What a life the children have at the coast!!!





"Family Fun Day" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/07/13
 

I got an early morming phone call saying, "lets go fishing, meet at the OIFC dock ASAP".  So we (Courtney, Camdyn and myself) loaded up and went to the dock.  We were met there by Capt. Brant, Capt. Amy, Caroline, Brayden and Capt. Rube.  We headed offshore and the first mission was to jig some bait.  We had some success with the bait fish, but the Sea Bass were just too thick.  After a while of jigging, Caroline, Camdyn and Brayden wanted to catch a King.  Capt. Rube deployed a rig and the rod never made it to the holder!  It was bit by a 17 pound king.  Camdyn grabbed the rod where she was assisted by Capt. Rube.  Capt. Rube coached Camdyn right through the fight until the fish was landed and in the boat.  Camdyn could not have made it through the fight without the assistance of Caroline.  You know you are good buddies when you hold your friends hair out of her face while she catches her King.  Next up was Caroline where we caught another King, and then Brayden was on the rod for some awesome sharks.  It was an awesome day on the water that was capped off by a nice swim.

How true that family time is the best time!!! I have always loved the saying Take Your Boy Hunting Instead of Hunting Your Boy!!!!

Capt. Rickey 07/07/2013

Most people cannot do this at home. My family couldn't where we used to live. Jeff & I started fishing at a small lake in Durham Co. when he was 5. Who would have ever guessed that we would be fortunate enough to have Camdyn who along with Jeff & Courtney are now my best fishing buddies. We owe Capt. Brant and the entire McMullan family a great deal for opening up this exciting new world to us. The short of it is take your child or a child fishing and open a whole new world for them. Even if it's a small lake in your county.
