"Dr. Lendall Suh Report" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/13/13
 

 I wanted to share some fishing phots. I will be unable to fish the Far Out Shoot Out because I am back in Cincinnati and preparing for a medical mission to the country of Jordan. Nevertheless I wanted to share some info to help the tournament participants.

We fished the area of 100/400 and Blackjack on Thursday and caught 8 Dolphin and 2 Wahoos both under 35 pounds. We had better weather on Friday at the Winyah Scarp area (we were able to run home in 1 hour and 25 minutes at 50+mph comfortably). We caught 8 Dolphin and 2 quality Wahoos which measured 56 inches and 59 inches and produced citations for my out of town guests.
The size of the dolphin and wahoo were better in the southern areas. If I were fishing the Far Out Shootout, I would fish the Winyah Scarp area.

Attached are some photos.

Thank you for your report and good luck on your mission Dr. Suh.

As always, if you have a repor with picturest you would like to shar email them to me at sunset69@atmc.net.

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/12/13
 

I fished all day with Frank and Mack from the windy city of Chicago on Saturday. The action in the backwater has been sluggish. We headed back towards Tubbs lnlet to drift for flounder. We found a few short fish, but nothing too impressive. We started working the grass line edges with mirrolures looking for trout. We got a really good bite, but the trout some how escaped from three treble hooks. We worked the bridge area and found two rather large stingrays. We moved into the cement canals and never got a significant bite. We decided to try our luck up the Shallotte River, it couldn't get any worse, right? We found a sheepshead and a black drum very quickly, but that was it. I have talked to several folks over the last few days and the bite has really been tough inside. It appears that most of the action is happening around the low tide period in the afternoon. The water temperature is getting right for the action to bust loose anyday now. We are going to stick with it and we will report the action when it happens. See ya on the water!

"Gulf Stream Action" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/12/13
 

Butch invited me to fish with him in the gulf stream this past Friday. It has been awhile since I have been in action out there. We headed for the 100/400 area and had our spread set just short of the mark. We ran a spread of 9 lines including teasers. We had a mix of daisy chains, cedar plugs, tuna feathers, sea witches, and ballyhoo rigged on a planer rod. The tuna feather on the long line produced our first mahi. The planer rod produced both wahoo and a nice mahi. We continued to work the area tightening up our spread with each pass fine tuning our game plan. We stayed busy with several short strikes, knock downs, and the planer rod tripping. We watch mahi check out the teasers and bump the daisy chains. As always it was very exciting to be out there in that situation. We made one last pass over the hot spot and all seven lines got knocked down in a hurry. Only two lines stayed tight though, the inside rigger blue and white and the planner rod. I so wanted to stay, but we had a long ride ahead of us. We feel that we ended the day respectable. Two wahoo and 4 mahi with one being a beautiful 20# bull. Plenty of great eating! Thanks Butch for getting me back out there! See ya on the water!

"Terry's Report" | OIFC | 05/12/13
 

As Captain Jacob Frick is famous for saying, "We Waxed ‘Em."   Two small-boat class left from OIFC dock at 6:00AM Friday May 10th, and here are the details:

22WA SeaFox (Yamaha 150) – 1 Blackfin Tuna, 6 Mahi boated

·         Terry’s boat, fishing with Chris Chambers of Fayetteville and his dad Steve of Spokane, WA

·         First line in (9:00) Blackfin (11.8lb) on Purple Cedar Plug (130lb mono) 4miles short of Blackjack

·         Six Mahi on a mix of cedar plugs (purple, mahi) and Pink/White Jet-head CLJ25 (select Ballyhoo)

·         Largest female Mahi (16.8 lb) on planer-downrigger on pink/white jet-head CLJ25 35 ft. down

·         Majority of Mahi caught on long-lines, but created problems getting “doubles” boated

·         Unsuccessful casting about Noon into schooling Mahi surrounding the boat, but they “nibbled”

·         Fished mostly on Blackjack mark, and then 3 miles along the ledge in 200-240 ft. of water

·         Water temps ranged from 76.4-78.00 degrees, about 3 hours out and in, 70 gallons of fuel

·         No attempt to catch Wahoo, too busy with Mahi and Tuna and using lighter remaining tackle

·         Wind picked up at 1:00, we left at 2:10PM, got back to OIFC dock at 5:20, 18-25 knots

·         Problems:  early and late rough water,  reel failures, break-offs, tangled lines, no auto-pilot

22.5CC Sea Hunt (Yamaha 150) – 2 Wahoo, 1 Mahi, 1 Tuna boated

·         Mike Lee’s boat, fishing with his friend Justin Privette, both from Mint Hill, NC

·         Tuna caught on Green Machine

·         Mahi on Black/Purple Tuna Feather

·         Wahoo on Ballyhoo using a planer and one on orange/black marauder

·         Burned 53 gallons, running about 25-38 knots

·         Problems:  Wahoo broke the planer (welds on brace), several lost fish

Twice now I’ve been to the Gulfstream (64 miles) in my own boat, using my own rigs, and it has been very memorable and intense.  This time, I drove out and back, did all set-ups, some reeling, and gaffing all day.  “Yes,” Corey, “I got blood all over me and my boat.”  I did a lot of planning on this one, but my “hats off” to Team OIFC for all the help and encouragement, and a special thanks to Captain Brant, mentor par excellance!                            

         OIFC Staffer, Dr. T, reporting

So far we have 6 boats entered to participate.  They are:

BOAT NAME CAPTAIN TWT HRTWT DOLPHIN WAHOO TUNA Endurance Terry Hart x x       Shock Wave Milton Via x x       Sea P.A./OIFC Ken Ritch x x       7th Heaven Larry Spainhour x         Choice of Two/OIFC Corey Bellamy           Black Dog Bob Newell x x      

ENTRY REMAINS OPEN THRU THIS FRIDAY THE 17TH.  Many are watching the weather to see if it will break before they enter.  At this point, it likes Tues or Weds are good days, but it is hard to put much stock in forecasts.  The good news is boats that have fished the Stream over the past week have done very good, so it is not the fish that are holding back. 

Join the 2013 Far Out Shoot Out.  It has always been about the bragging rights, and now we have come back full cirlce- IT IS ALL ABOUT THE BRAGGING RIGHTS.  You can register at the OIFC or ENTER ON-LINE.

"Flounder Due south" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/09/13
 

Captain Jason Burton of Murrells Inlet reports a strong flounder bite in Murrells Inlet.  That can only mean the flat fish will be firing off here shortly.  We are keeping an ear out for the Cherry Grove bite which means ours is only a few days away.

 

Thanks for the report Jason and good luck down south.  Remember you can email your reports with pictures to sunset69@atmc.net and I'll do my best to post them.

Mullet and BSB-- and one 20" flounder near Shallote Point today,,, so they are on the way here.





"Everything U Need..." | Tiberias - 22' | 05/09/13
 

Fill the boat up with an inshore slam...Speckled trout, red drum, flounder, and black drum have all been caught the past couple of weeks. Things are only going to get better from here. Gulp baits on a light jighead is surely to get the bite!

Keep the family and kids from getting crabby...blue crabs are great eating and they are getting thicker in our waterway each day.   A throw line and a chicken neck is all you need to fill up a cooler of great eating.

Kings and Spanish are moving into our nearshore waters. We have custom made live bait and dead bait rigs already tied for you that will help catch your limit of kings. Pre-rigged spanish leaders, paired with a #1 planer will stack the deck full of spanish.

Ya'll come on by the store this weekend. I have got all this great stuff on an easy to find end cap. Any questions? Holler at the staff and they will gladly help you out! See ya on the water!

"The Jack O Latern" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/08/13
 

Dr. Terry lights up as his new Jack O Latern lure is looking good! Dr. Terry hopes to push his little 23' Sea Fox to the edge of the stream Friday. I hope the weather holds and folks can get out on the water.

Some body let the dogs out? Capt. William Parker found a nice citation flounder this afternoon just before low tide. The water temperatures are still below normal for this time of year. The weather and temperatures appear to be more stable in this week's forecast.

Another good friend of mine reported getting a few nice black drum and two keeper flounder this afternoon as well.

The Little River Jetties were hot this morning, but the shallow creeks are where most of the action is still happening.

I am looking forward to an increase in the action. As always stay tuned as we will most definitly keep you posted. See ya on the water!

"Finally Going Fishing" | OIFC | 05/07/13
 

Team OIFC is finally going fishing-- or at least we will make it as far as the boat in the morning.  Barrett and I are headed out with a few friends to see what is beyond the horizon.  As is normal, the "usual" will not be on the menu.  Something between Mahi, Marlin, Swordfish, Tilefish and Snowy Grouper -- go deep or go home.  Stay tuned. 

The weather is looking good thru Saturday.  The Far Out Shoot Out tournament starts fishing Saturday.  Capt. meeting is Friday, 7pm at the Carolina Wing Company.  Come join the fun.

Capt. Brant 05/09/2013

Killing you? How bout me? I'm stuck with one foot in a cast, non-weight bearing for 6 weeks- Praying for the weather to lay enough to go fishing. We arrived to the sea buoy at 6:15am and I made the no-go call. The wind was SW at 12kts with a south swell that was tight and steep. It was doable for sure, but not in my condition. OC went ahead on his Stream charter and boated a dozen or so 10-12lb Mahi, couple Blackfin and then did some bottom fishing the second half of the day. He said the Mahi were not bunched up, scattered steady. He fished the Black Jack area. Once again the weather has gone to poop and what was looking like good conditions is no more. Such is life I guess?

Matt Sobota 05/09/2013

You know your killing us not getting the update to this report up. Hope you had a good day yesterday.





"Parrot Party" | OIFC | 05/07/13
 

This Thursday evening at the Carolina Wing Co. in Shallotte there is a "Parrot Party".

"Taking time to smell the roses" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 05/06/13
 

I took some time to pick the brain of life time friend Milton Williams. Many of you may remember Milton as that skinny fella with the funny laugh that ran the pier at OIB.  Milton knows the water ways and creeks as good as anyone around. While there I took a moment to admire the roses around the yard. With the 20 mph east winds that have blow for the past 10 days fishing has been tough to say the least. With that said we have not given up. The beauty of inshore is there is always somewhere to hide from the winds. With a bag of freshly caught shrimp and some jumbo mud minnnows from the OIFC. I hit the holes in the back waters and found some willing to chew.
