Just in case you forgot what Shallotte inlet looks like. It was a beautiful ride this morning.

What can we say? Thank you isn't enough! Because of your loyal support, the Jolly Mon was the #3 Brunswick County Event in the "Best of Brunswick" for 2012. Coming in 3rd to 1st place Oyster Festival, and 2nd place Festival By the Sea is a feat to be proud of.
Thank you everyone!!!
February always seems to be our coldest and most brutal month. Despite the conditions there is one pro to this time of year. Crystal clear water! It makes for great underwater footage. See ya on the water!
Got out for a little while today. Myself and a good friend Joe Zurad battled the bitter cold ENE winds in hopes of catching a redfish. The weatherman was dead on with the wind direction, but where was that sunshine until 2 pm today? We woke up to cloudy conditions and never saw the sun peak at us once. This made it very difficult to scout out and see the redfish. Water conditions were very clear, but again low light conditions made it tough. The water temperature started off at 49 degrees. When the water temp gets into the 40's the fish really seem to get sluggish. We moved around looking hard and watching water temps. We found some water reaching the 51 degree mark and got our first bite of the day. We worked the area over pretty hard without another sniff. We moved to another area and found some more water around that 51 degree mark. The bite was on! The majority of the fish were just in the lower slot around 19 inchs or so. Joe finally got a bite and landed a nice red. Bitter sweet! We ended the day with a dozen reds, not too shabby for February. See ya on the water!
What were they biting? The 4" sea shad by Bass Assassin in grey ghost tied to the end of my line! If you look real close you can see one hanging out of the fish's mouth in the picture. Don't forget the red jigheads!
I have a friend who runs an auto service center. He said several people had brought their cars in with performance issues. He tested the fuel and in each and every one he found 20% ethanol! We all know what ethanol does to marine motors. Now with seemingly 20% in the fuel be advised for further performance issues and possible damage.
The OIFC sells 100% ethanol ffree fuel as well as ethanol fue. We also sell STA-Bill Ethanol Treatment and Performance Enhancer.
We are still waiting for the trophies to come in.

Bob Newell sent this picture and report for us to share. Bob said they raised 15, hooked 13, released 10 mostly all pitched baits, "no mate just us boys on a 28 panga" with mike Webb of Pelagic Sportfishing. They were 15 miles off the beach and were fishing beside the fleet from Casa Vieja Lodge withthe fly fisherman on board. " lots of fun"
No doubt...Thanks from all of us!
