"Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic-Saturday" | Do Work / OIFC | 06/10/16
 

As many know I had the honor, & pleasure to be invited to accompany the Ocean Isle Fishing Center's Capt Brant McMullan, Capt. Chris Dew and his fine son and excellent OIFC 1st Mate Aaron Dew on a pre fishing expedition for the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic. Our mission was to tow the OIFC 39' Pelagic, Yamaha Yellowfin thru the approaching tropical storm safely to Biloxi, Mississippi   Then we would fish various locations in an attempt to locate bait, Blackfin tuna, which is also bait, yellowfin tuna and hopefully the blue marlin.  I'm pleased to say we were successful!!  Aaron even hooked up on a monster marlin using a kingfish  set up. Ask how did that work out Then on Wednesday Capt Chris and Aaron flew back to the OIFC to run charters. I stayed behind to hold down the fort at the Golden Nugget while Capt Brant, Capt Barrett McMullan, Brayden McMullan, Capt Jeff Beck, Brian Aycock and Scott Smith, nephew of the great  Arthur Smith (Arthur Smith Kingfish Tournaments) took over the duties of actually fishing the Tournament.  I cannot express my gratitude to the McMullans for all they have done for me and my family over the years. Pam loved them as much as I do. I have several posts chronicling our adventures. Good luck, God speed & Tight Lines Team OIFC!!!

The pictures below are from the Monday leg of our pre fishing for the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic. If you ever wonder about the price of gas just look at these oil rigs. We were fishing on the back side of the tropical storm and the 39' Pelagic, OIFC , twin 300 hp Yamaha Yellowfin did great!  Also check out Aaron Dew's 80+ lb yellowfin.  I had one also but we released him as We had Aaron's in the fish box

"Mississippi Gulf Coast Billlfish Classic-Wednesday" | Do Work / OIFC | 06/09/16
 

Wednesday of our prefishing for the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic. We checked out of Port Eads and made the run past Venice, up the Mississippi and back to Biloxi to meet up with the tournament fishing team.  Our job prefishing is done. I must say we were successful in locating, hooking up with and in some cases landing yellowfin and blue marlin.  I enjoyed my time with a fun and competent crew consisting of Capt Brant McMullan, Capt Chris Dew and 1st mate (ought to be a Captain) Aaron Dew. They flew back to the Ocean Isle Fishing Center and I stayed behind as a land source.  They made me tough it out by staying at the Golden Nugget. Lol

Fishing the bait pods for Cobia around the cape fear river channel has paid off here in the past two days. Our 6hour charter, captain Ben Morris and I hauled in the two pictured below this morning. We also saw quite a few more with the two we caught. The timing cannot be more perfect for the Cobia clash on Saturday. Anglers interested in entering must be registered by 7am on Saturday (6/4). Visit the Cobia clash tournament page to register by clicking on COBIA CLASH in the "tournaments" drop down box on the OIFC.com page.

"Fishing is Good even on Bad days" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/01/16
 

I stress all the time about catching fish and often clients remind me that a bad day on the water still beats a great day at the office. The problem is this is my office and catching fish often dictates how I feel about my day. I can promise you nothing makes me more happy than clients bringing fish to the boat. My goal and hope is for all my clients to experience the awesomeness our fishery has to offer at its peak. That doesn't always happen, but most of the time we do grind out a few fish even on the bad days. Lately, the fishing has been pretty good. Flounder have been good targets that have been willing to bite. Speckled trout have also been good targets early in the morning and even a few good ones show up in the mix while targeting flounder with live baits. Black drum have been hit or miss with lots of small ones hanging around. Redfish have also been hit or miss as it seems to be fewer of these fish around right now. On calm days we have been out on the beach drilling the spanish mackerel and even picking on the sharks for good measure. Come on down and lets go find some fish! These fine folks did! See ya on the water!

"Flounder Hunter" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/31/16
 

Elizabeth Hunter had a blast catching some nice flounder for dinner. The flounder bite has been pretty good in our area, but lots of fish are still on the small side. Elizabeth also won the award for most species caught today. She landed toadfish, pinfish, black drum, croakers, grunts, speckled trout, flounder, and finished the day with a nice redfish. Her grandfather Jesse even pulled a shark out of the water for a little extra excitement. The water is heating up and the baitfish are getting thick. Opportunities to catch fish should get greater with each passing day. Come on down and lets go fishing! See ya on the water!
