"Slob!!!" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/31/13
 

This is from Bryan Freeman:
 
Hey Ricky, ran up to the Same Ol Saturday with Todd Tansky and Schuyler Duncan. Ended up with 5 wahoos and a blackfin.
They were all nice fish. The one in the picture is a real slob, thick and 68 inch fork length. Wish we had time to weigh it but had to
get home for Easter festivities.

Brant, we had 2 Go Pro's running for the whole thing... including it skying on the flat line, so I'm hoping we have immortalized that nice fish in deserving fashion. Everyone too busy with Easter plans to have looked at the video yet. We all had to scatter when we got back and could not find any scales that could handle the fish so no official weight. But yeah, it was a good 'un.

Capt. Brant 04/01/2013

Good Lord! That is a BIG fish. Shame on you Bryan. That fish deserves a good picture! I'd say 80+. Did you ever get a scale on it?





"Empty Pockets" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/31/13
 

Wemdell Barnett reports:
Jay Ford and I rode 100 miles to the Same Ole , When we got there we could see off the horizon there must been 20 boats fishing and complaining about no fish. We fast trolled, figured out the water  temperature and water color and fast trolled.  I have no love of fast trolling, and threw out dead baits.  The went by with first hour no bites then we started catching fish .
We ended up with 6 wahoos in the box lost 3 hook ups.  The scales don't lie...the biggest was 62lb and next one was 58 lb
 
Thank you for the report Wendell.

thanks brant , for the hook up ratio we run all 50 wides two speed with 80lb test mono no braid and close to 24lb of drag on strike zone on reel . all fish fought in rod holder never leaves until fish going to be gaft . we wind the fish in minumium 4.5 mph in the grandy gear . we use the boat as part of the drag that way no slack in line for hook to be pull.I realize this is not the way for charter boats customers to have good time fighting fish but this systems work for me. thanks wendell barnett// emptypockets

Capt. Brant 04/01/2013

I hereby claim Wendell as the Wahoo king! He finds and catches the Wahoo when others cannot. AND he has the best hookup to catch ratio I know. Tell us oh wise one, what is the secret?

It's all Lee's ({Timberlake} fault--the reason we didn't catch any wahoo or tuna yesterday. Serious offshore fishermen will note the brand of sunblock that he had on the boat. Lucky we didn't sink!

"Great end to a busy week." | OIFC | 03/30/13
 

It has been quite a week.  The Dolphin/Wahoo meeting took place in Charleston on Wednesday as scheduled and I am still sifting through the details.  More on that issue to follow...

In the meantime, I got a chance to go fishing with my two buddies Sammy and Daniel Macdonald, two brothers from Weaverville, NC.  Joining us on the trip were their mother, Woodeane Macdonald, and longtime fixture on the Brunswick County fishing scene, Stephen "Puddin" Hunter.  With a great weather forecast, this was the first trip offshore for Sammy and Daniel.

Finding 63 degree water at the Steeples, we started jigging immediately, and didn't really stop until we had thoroughly demolished a Saragosa 14000.  The bite started slow, but when it turned on, it was pretty consistent action for the rest of the day.  Several different species were brought boatside, and we sacrificed a LOT of tackle to some fish that just weren't meant to be caught.  Sammy and Daniel showed a real aptitude for the fishing we were doing.  Can't wait to go fishing with these two again when the weather gets warmer and the dolphinfish are thick!  Won't be long...

"Pre-Rodeo Fishing" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/30/13
 

Brandon Sauls push polled his way to the reds today.  He said he caught and released a total of seven.  I especially like it when they are released to fight another day.  I'm sure he's warming up for 2013 edition of the OIFC Year Around Rodeo.

By the way, if you haven't picked up your trophy and money, both are ready at the OIFC

"Started Off Slow and Tapered Off..." | Tiberias - 22' | 03/30/13
 

The Full moon this morning had the tide way back in the grass. The winds were light enough to search out the schools of reds in the shallow grass. We headed way back into the grass looking for any signs of life. No mullet, no reds, no trout, no life on this planet...we were down by 10 runs in the bottom of the 7th inning looking for a miracle. Dragging the boat over one sand bar to the next testing each little pot hole with live mud minnows. I believe I saw that rod tip jump a bit there. Go down baby, please go down! Nothing...we pulled in both lines to check for signs of a bite. Cabbage! Green cabbage is everywhere! We got the lines reset, the rod tip was bouncing again with just a few seconds in the water. Thats him! No doubt! Bust'em! Nicholos drags our first lower slot red to the boat. He's on base...Kerry is up to bat...hard swing and he connects...its way back, way back...close to foul territory...get'em out of the pilings...Home run baby! Kerry lands a solid 25 inch brute! We landed a few more lower slot reds and headed for the dock. I'll bet Kerry is still given them fellows a hard time about his awesome angling skills. Hey! We all had fun and everyone did a great job angling. I don't think we lost any solid hook ups today. A huge thanks to Chris, Kerry and Nicholos for getting out on the water with me this morning! See ya on the water!

Thanks Chris!

Chris 04/01/2013

You are right about Kerry, he won't stop talking about his angling skills. If you have never gone out with Capt. Jacob you have to try it. He knows his stuff and will do whatever it takes to find the fish.





"Spring Fever" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/29/13
 

If today didn't give me Spring Fever, nothing will.  It was nice to just sit around the OIFC and watch all the boats come in for fuel as they prep for their offshore adventures tomorrow.  Watching the kids run and play in the grass as the dogs ran along with them.  What's gonna make it worse is when all the boats return tomorrow with their catch form their offshore adventure.  Make plans to be at the OIFC docks tomorrow evening to see what comes in, I promise that I will have my crew there.

Those pesky "endangered" sea bass are as thick as fleas on a dog's back. I'd love to see the scientific study the government did.
