"Martini's 2012 Fall Hook-A-Hoo Rodeo" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/25/12
 

The following report was sent to us by Capt. Chris Critz and we are very happy to pass it along.

2012 Fall Hook-A-Hoo Rodeo

Congratulations to Robert North, and his team aboard North Offshore, for their 70.70 pound Wahoo caught during the Fall Hook-A-Hoo!  The fish was caught be Ren Fortier, age 9, and won First Place, the Wahoo TWT, and the Junior Angler for the 2012 tournament.  John Munroe, and crew aboard the Office II, caught a 50.75 pounder to win Second Place.  Cindy Early was the angler and took home the Lady Angler award this year.  Third Place was won by Joe Elphick, and crew, aboard the Box Office, with a 46.80 pounder.  This was Joe’s second year fishing the tournament and his second year on the Leaderboard.  The Tuna TWT and the Dolphin TWT were won by Justin Huntley, aboard the High Expectations, and Gene Long, aboard the Reel Long, respectively.

We greatly appreciate those Fishermen and Sponsors supporting this year’s Fall Hook-A-Hoo and the children at the Shriners’ Hospitals.  Thanks to all of you.  I hope everyone has a great Holiday season and a prosperous New Year.  We look forward to seeing you next year to once again fish for the kids at Shriners!

"Looking for Bronze" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/25/12
 

Haynes and Bailey joined me for a half day of fishing yesterday. We hit a few places close to home without a bite. Moved on into the Shallotte River and picked off a few trout. Again, the trout bite has really slowed down in the river. We moved on out into the waterway and started hitting the flats between docks. We started picking at the reds. As the tide started to rise we followed the water into a small feeder creek looking for movement. We found a large school of reds in the 15 to 19 inch range and went to work! I am not sure how many we ended up catching, but I am confident that both anglers were in double digits. Both Haynes and Bailey also caught a small flounder completing Carolina Slams in November. Thank you guys for coming out and fishing with me! See ya on the water!

"Black Friday" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/24/12
 

Mr. Harris and son Quinn joined me for a half day of fishing on the official shopping day of the year. We were all exactly where we wanted to be...ON THE WATER! The fishing has slowed down a bit from earlier in November. Strong winds, a little rain, and traffic has stirred the water scattering the fish. Quinn was the first to draw a strike from a keeper 15" trout. Come to think about it...it was all Quinn. Quinn pulled the trigger on several trout with his biggest right around 21 inches. Mr. Harris really didn't fish a whole lot, but did manage a nice 20 inch trout himself. We gave the trout a break and moved to find a few redfish. Again, Quinn was the first to pull the trigger and landed a our first red of the day. We picked at them changing baits and locations several times to finally find a 19 incher for the box. I enjoyed having you guys and hope to see ya next year. See ya on the water!

"Slow but steady" | Get Busy | 11/23/12
 

The trout bite was anything but on fire on this black Friday. The fish bit on the falling tide early this morning but quit when the tide stopped and began to rise. I checked around some creeks and talked to other fishermen about live shrimp. GONE they are. So break out the gulp and beat the oyster bars and catch you some.

Dr. Jeff Wallen and crew braved the elements yesterday and had a big day on the trout.

"Capt. Rickey's Annual Christmas Spec-Tacular Trout Tournament" | Get Busy | 11/15/12
 

I proudly announce the 2nd edition of our Trout Tournament.  It will be held December 26th..same as last year.  The rules are the trout must be caught the same day as the tournament and must be weighed in at the OIFC.  In the event of a tie the 1st fish will win.  The weigh in time will be from 3-5 pm..subject to change.   The $50 entry fee must be paid in cash.

This is a winner take all tournament. Last year Clay Morphes put on one heck of a feed the night of the tournament.  The OIFC has nothing to do with the tournament but I thank them for the use of their dock and scales.  Any questions ask the Executive Committee.. Me, Brandon Sauls or Clay Morphes.  It's a laid back tournament meant for fun money and bragging rights.  Clay has provided us with a plaque.

Everybody join in for a fun time and some pretty big bucks!

Mark Edge submittted the following report on the trout bite:

They were all over our area... . creeks and even Calabash creek. Creek intersections with fast moving water... fish hanging on the edges of the currents.

Thanks for the report.  We are always having people asking where to find the trout.  Remember to get a S.C. license if your fishing Bonaparte Creek and down folks.

"It's Trout Time!" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/14/12
 

The weekend weather was grogeous bringing out lots of fisherman and fishing pressure increased tremendously. Derek and I got out on Sunday afternoon catching a hand full of trout and a 20 inch flounder. I got out Monday for a little while and things had settled down from the weekend. I picked off and released several trout. I also found a good school of reds. Today had its own new challanges, approaching front, new moon, and strong tidal flow. We caught most of our fish as the tide was turning at high tide today. As the current picked up speed it made things difficult, but we picked at them. We managed around 15 trout and a dozen reds with a solid 26 incher in the mix. See ya on the water!

"Thank God" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/13/12
 

Below is a report from the Windy Conditions Fishing Team taken during the SKA Nationals a couple of weeks ago.  The Choice of Two is Captained by Corey Bellamy of Calabash, N.C.  Capt. Zach Faulkner (Get Floored) told me he thought the bilge pump on the Wellcraft went out and then they took 2 waves over the side.
It was rough in the gulf on Saturday. This was a 35' Wellcraft. Choice of Two rescued the crew thank god.
And from Patty Hughes, wife of Froley Hughes:
The boat that sank at the SKA Nationals in Biloxi MS on Saturday. Corey Bellamy's team CHOICE OF TWO resuced the 3 Lousianna fishermen, as much equipment as possible, and then did what the 3 wanted-kept fishing with 9 people on board in much less than perfect conditions.
Corey Bellamy and the crew of The Choice Of Two are heroes in my book.

"Cool Fishing Adventure" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/13/12
 

Victor Jones sent the OIFC this tale of his recent fishing adventure.  It's well worth reading.

Captain and boat owner Richard Hodges, Birk Ayer, Alex Rodriguez and I took the BroadBlue 42 catamaran sailing/fishing south from NC to FL bucking the edge of the gulf stream. This is the reverse trip than we have taken in Mays past. We loaded supplies Saturday in Beaufort, NC and initially anchored nearby in the ocean about 1/8 mile west of the last dunes at cape point Cape Lookout, marginally protected from north and east wind. We were waiting on the wind to turn some and blow harder out of the north. In the mean time we took the dingy over to the beach to spend time on the beach with a bunch of our friends for the afternoon and great fireside dinner.

We pulled anchor Sunday at midnight to head south and east to be on the continental shelf edge by late morning. When daylight came we had 20+ kts out of the NW and 12ft following seas. We put lines in and fished anyway$B!D!D(B.that$B!G(Bs why we were in that location. We caught the head of a Blackfin Tuna, the head of a large False Albacore, one half of a very large False Albacore ( it looked like it had been chopped in half with a meat cleaver) and we eventually boated two nice Wahoo about the same size (see picture one) both north and south of Steeples which is 50 miles or so off Cape Fear. When the Wahoo was being fought Richard would fire up both diesels in full reverse to slow the boat speed from 9kts down to around 3.5kts. Heavy two speed 50 wide reels with 100lb line set to maximum drag were the standard set up. Most fish were caught with 6 oz lead head dark skirted wire trace ballyhoo rigs pulled behind heavy trolling weights 32 or 48 oz. We barbequed Wahoo steaks Monday evening on the boat for dinner and knew on day one we would definitely not go hungry for the rest of the trip$B!D!D!D(B.there would be no rice and beans only meals. We were headed for shelter at Raccoon Key, which is near Cape Romain to hide from north Gale Force Winds associated with the big Noreaster that came through after Hurricane Sandy.

After sailing through the night, we waited on anchor for a day off the south facing beach protected from the wind and far away from the center of the Gale. We set sail Wednesday before daylight headed back to the gulf stream. We caught about a dozen large False Albacore before we got to the stream and then picked up some Mahi Mahi and one more Wahoo (see picture two) near 226 hole off Charleston on Wednesday. Sailed through the night on Wednesday. Did not have much luck in Georgia and northern Florida on Thursday with sharks and one Mahi. While the fishing was skinny I feel confident we caught more Wahoo than anyone else on November 5. In 500 miles we did not see one sportfishing boat. Thursday night we made our approach to St Augustine arriving at the sea buoy at first light Friday morning. We drove back to Charlotte Friday afternoon.

We sailed hard and caught some nice fish. Had fresh fish everyday Wahoo steaks, Mahi fillets, Mahi sushi, Ceviche etc. And have some fish in the freezer. It was a pretty amazing.

"Resurfaced" | Get Busy | 11/13/12
 

Our good friend and local in shore super angler Tim Gallimore has finally resurfaced.  And he did it in good fashion.  Attached are a couple photos from his Sunday's adventures. With Tim are Steve Miller and Ryan Boltz. We had a "load" of trout caught near Shallotte Inlet on his custom Tim's Chicken Woodpecker rigs.  Tim is forever finding innovative ways to adapt to the local fishing habitats.

For those who are trapped north of the sweet tea line, a "load" in a unit of measurement in the south.  It is just short of a "boat load".

Thanks for the report Tim and we expect to see you in the "Captain Rickey's Christmas Spectacular Trout Tournament."  We'd like to see as many people in it this year as possible.  Details will follow as soon as the Executive Committee finalizes the plans.
