"Road Tax Refund for Fuel Purchases" | OIFC | 03/17/13
 

I got a call from a customer who said the State was giving him a "load" about needing every receipt from every purchase of gas from the OIFC.  Your print out is your receipt and it has been approved by the NC Dept of Revenue to be used as one, and they have been using it to give refunds for 10 years now.  Sounds like there may be a new person handling refunds, so beware.  You have what you need, and if they say NO, let us know--- email INFO@OIFC.com and we will get involved if need be.

"Cash is King" | OIFC | 03/17/13
 

Over the Winter I was reminiscing on how the tournaments "used" to be.  There were more boats and more money.  A $250 entry fee was standard, 200+ boats were average, and payouts over $20k were the norm- oh yeah, and fuel was $2/gallon; those were the days. 

Our sport has been under attack for several years, and the result is sport fishing has been hit hard; including fishing tournaments.  Entry fees are pushing $400 in many tournaments and if a tournament gets 100 boats it is considered one of the big ones. 

So, I am thinking, how do we get more people interested?  How do we get more fishermen to fish?  How do we generate outside interest and excitement?  I'm not saying that I have come up with a solution, but I do think I have developed a program that might just help to bring some of the energy back.

The program is called "Cash is King"; and it will be introduced and utilized for the first time in the 2013 Jolly Mon.  Here is how it works:

Beginning on Friday, June 14th at 12pm, a live updating grid-like webpage will be broadcast live on www.oifc.com.  The grid will consist of the boat name, capt. name and each level of TWT that every boat that enters the Jolly Mon has paid for.  A red square means the TWT has been paid for, a green square means it was not purchased by the captain.  Throughout the day, as captains enter their boats, the grid will fill out continuously; a meshwork of boat names and green and/or red squares.  At any time, the general public can click on a green square, add it to their shopping cart, and purchase that boat's upaid TWT.  If that boat wins, whoever bought the available TWT will win 90% of the prize money and the boat will 10% of the prize money.  Some simple math to consider:  The Jolly Mon has averaged 275 boat entries over the past 5 years.  On average, 20% of boats enter in the High Rollers TWT ($250 per boat).  If the public was able to purchase the remaining available Hight Roller TWTs, the average High Rollers payout would go from $12,000 to an astounding $60,000.  The same would apply to the 23 and under TWT and the standard TWT.  Every time a boat does not purchase their TWT in any level, it is money left on the table; for them or for another team.  The intent is for the public: a team's family member, friend, boss OR maybe a fishermen in South Florida who loves to tournament fish decides to buy a team's open TWT just to feel like he is competing. ANYONE can buy another boat's open TWT.  I am hoping that by the boat collecting 10% of the winnings, it will incentivize the captain and crew of that boat to market themselves to potential buyers of their open TWT's, thus giving them a great chance of increasing their potential prize winnings.  Facebook, The Hull Truth, FishSKA.com.....these are all viable marketing sites in which a crew can find interested buyers to purchase their open TWT. 

That is pretty much the concept and jist.  I want to see money injected into the payout that does not have to come from the fishermen that are competing themselves.  Sure, fishermen will likely buy other fishermen's TWT's, but maybe friends, family members, co-workers or anonymous buyers who simply like the name of the boat will also buy; thus adding more money while also increasing the base of people that are interested in the tournament.  Spectator crowds will grow and not only will fans be watching for the fun, they will have a vested interest.  Certainly there are details, but I believe that my experience fishing tournaments will address all the "potentials".  What I am hoping is for you fishermen to start talking about it, start thinking about it, and hopefully start marketing yourself for the Jolly Mon 2013.  This is a radical new concept that also involves the use of technology; thus there will be lots of questions and resistance to change.  But, I think this is the time for change.  For many of us, tournament fishing is a way of life, and we want to see it rise, therefore a change must be made.

Please help me spread the idea of "Cash is King" so that when June 14th arrives, www.OIFC.com will be abuzz with activity as fishermen and non-fishermen add to the pot, all hoping to take home a piece of the winning prize in the 2013 Jolly Mon King Classic.

Great Idea! OIFC will need a super computer to handle the rush of buyers as boats are registered. This concept will take off because there are many fisherman not on the boat because of the economy, this will give many a way to participate at a lower cost with potential big rewards. Exciting!!!

Kingfishconnection.com 03/20/2013

Great concept and looking forward to seeing it action - I would like to share this on kingfishconnection.com - could you email me an official press release ? Thanks Ryan

Barrett 03/19/2013

This is a big deal IF it gets traction. Just think how much money is left on the table in tournaments with all the "unbought" twt's. IF this works and outside money starts coming in buying up the available twt's, the winner of the Jolly Mon could be looking at a 100k pay day without paying any more in entry fees and not fishing against any more entries. Awesome opportunity. I hope this gets the attention it needs to really take off. Makes a lot of sense.

Jody Yarbrough 03/18/2013

Great Idea!! Have you thought about a straight up paramutual?? Ive always thought that would make for a lot of fun especially with the crowd you guys bring out!!

Ken Ritch 03/18/2013

Excellent idea Brant - this should definitely spark some additional interest.

Drew 03/18/2013

I like the concept, but I think that you will have to educate the average, non-sponsored teams on the importance of having a website, or some web presence, in order to generate interest outside of their own friends and family. Maybe you could host a forum on your site where they could post pictures of their boat, crew, and a little biographical info to generate interest in their TWT. Maybe they fish to promote a charity of their choice that others would like to support.

Tim Gray 03/18/2013

Wow, this is a great idea. There are plenty folks that would pool a group of 4 together and split the TWT and not have to spend all the money on gas and entry fees and still have significant winnings. The boat also has some "skin in the game" because there is 10 percent on the line for them as well. I hope this concept catches fire.

Corey Bellamy 03/18/2013

I think it is an awesome concept .. I myself lost around 10k dollars in twt high roller money this year by not entering ... My team was already invested a good amount of money in the tournaments and decided not to do any of the twts .. But say my dad and a couple of his buddies that sit at the dock while we fish and didnt have to pay entry fees wanted to have a shot at winning some money : they could of bet on my twts and would of put 90% of that 10k in there pockets and then that would of also given me an extra 1k cash .. The potential payouts could really spice up the tournaments and bring more people down to fish ... Great concept guys ..

Capt. Rickey 03/17/2013

This sounds like added excitement and greater incentive to represent our sponsors. The Do Work/OIFC Contender has new canvas, Simrad electronics, sponsorships from the OIFC, Simrad, Sea Tow, more in the works and still seeking more. She is polished, detailed, knows she's loved and is ready to catch some smokers. So someone has a big chance to make some money.

"Spring Kickoff Cornhole Champ!" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/17/13
 

A new addition to the OIFC's Spring Kickoff was the game of Corn Hole.  It was an instant hit!The 1st place winners of the Corn Hole family division, for the spring kick off were Captain Chris Dawson and his daughter Lady Angler Miss Cassie Dawson.

Capt. Brant had a lot going on all day.  There were speakers, awards for the OIFC 2012 Rodeo, drawings for some really cool prizes, vendors and our own Dr. Terry singing at the G. Mack.

The 20% off EVERYTHING was a smashing success!  The Kickoff was THE time to buy fishing supplies and tackle.  The biggest surprise seller was the Hero3 Cameras.   I cannot think of anyplace, even the GoPro site where you can find them at the price they were sold yesterday.  Customers knew it too and took advantage.

 

Personally, I had a ball!!  I got to see a bunch of my fishing buddies, make my usual smart remarks, laugh, and tell stories.  If you missed it, be sure to catch our next big event, The Far Out Shoot Out May 10-18t!

Thank you everyone who came out!

"Almost stuck..." | Tiberias - 22' | 03/17/13
 

David, Dave, and Terry joined me for a half day of backwater fishing on Friday afternoon. We started off in the skinny waters behind Sunset Beach tossing artificials without a bite. I made a pretty risky move into some skinny water around tubbs inlet. The water was falling fast and time was not on our side. I got the boat to hold in good position. Tossed the first live mud minnow under the dock and a 28" red got us started! We caught a few more just short and just in the lower slot. I told my guys we have got to get out of here! I was about 15 minutes from getting stuck. I managed to drag the boat across the sand bar with current, wind, and trolling motor helping us out. We made it to the safety of the waterway and hit a few docks. We picked up one more little red. We surveyed some of the docks we fished and saw plenty of nice reds that have not found their appetite yet. Spring is trying to push old man winter outta here. As the water warms and live bait gets more abundant these fish should start to bite more regularly. See ya on the water!
