Great! I've had to drive to Cherry Grove for minnows for too long this winter!





"Frustrating..." | Tiberias - 22' | 03/09/13
 

You don't say...March...the month of the winds. I am not sure we have had a day of wind under 15kts since March started. Sunday and Monday are forecasted to be the best days so far. We will have to see if it holds? Today the wind was a steady 15kts out of the NNE and gusty up to 25kts. We worked the OIB canals over pretty hard picking at the edges and down the middle. We worked, worked, and worked...Finally, Doug drilled a decent trout. We worked, worked, and worked...Made a move...Quartered out some live crabs and put'em under a dock. Waited...one got drilled...rod bent, line screaming...get him! Hook pulled...not another bite after 30 more minutes of waiting. Frustrating to say the least...We went back to work in the canals. I finally made the call...last cast here guys...Bailey says, I got one! Your kidding me? Sure enough...Bailey struck gold on the last cast! I guess that is like hitting the perfect golf shot into the 18th green after having a tough day. It is whats keeps us coming back for more. See ya on the water!

Had a fun day running the Rugged Manic, which is a 5K through the mud. Just a little off season prep getting ready for the fish to start biting. I checked all the pools we ran through for bait, but I think the water temps were to low. Maybe they'll show up soon.





"Red Fish One" | Toes Up / OIFC | 03/09/13
 

King Mackerel....No, this is not a report on a giant King being caught, but I had to get your attention. With Spring just around the corner and the King Mackerel fishing soon to follow, now is the perfect time to start tying those rigs up ...to get ready for fishing and tournament season. Also, with the OIFC Spring Kickoff coming, that will be the perfect time to stock up on your king rig supplies. Here on the Toes Up Fishing Team, we love using those RedFish One Hooks. We started using those about 3 years ago and have been very impressed with their strength and sharpness. If a King grabs a hold, that hook bites back and doesn't turn loose. Look for them when you go to the OIFC.

"CCU Seminar" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 03/07/13
 

The OIFC received this from John who attended the Seminar-

Saturday Coastal Saltwater Anglers put on a seminar to help defray costs of these college students fishing. There were four presentations. The 1st was offshore trolling and everyone had to learn something. Next was Jacob from OIFC and he did a great job with an inshore presentation. I recognized one of my favorite fishing spots on the Shallotte River in the short video. It was nice to see his young son land a redfish on the video. Jacob was very open showing everyone the tackle he used and described his presentation too. He informed the group of boat position depending on tides also. He answered questions from the group when he finished. I no longer have my 17’ skiff and since the restaurant added docks in the river I may not get back there as much. At low tide with boats at the dock my larger boat may have a problem with the sand bar. Like Jacob, I preferred the river through the tide change. When finished Jacob had to leave as he had a client to take fishing while the rest of us talked among ourselves during the lunch provided. The next presentation was given by two kingfish tournament anglers. With my bigger boat curtailing trips to the river and Tubbs Inlet I was anxious to hear what they had to say. I ran charters on Lake Erie long ago and am anxious to begin trolling and drifting in the ocean, especially trolling. I really needed to find trolling speed ranges and etc. That info and much more was provided. The last presentation was by a charter boat mate on near shore techniques. The raffle—well let’s just say there was so many items I believe everyone left with one or two fishing items! I’ll go back next year and suggest everyone consider helping these young men and having a good time learning something too. Jodie Gay of Bluewater Candy lures will be giving a different presentation in Wilmington on the 16th. Sadly, the same day as OIFC is having a special day…. Bet I can make both!

A friend of mine TIm and I made a couple of these this weekend and thought id share this simple and cheap solution to rod storage. I will be using this for whenever I get done from a day of fishing. I'll simply take all my rods off the boat and stick them all in this rack as well as all of my used lures/rigs for the day..Rinse everything at one time and let it dry and your done.. I trailer my boat and usually when i get done i'll lay the rods against the boat and rinse them that way and usually end up having my rods sliding down the boat scratching it up. Im sure most of you guys have seen similar stuff but heres what we used << For one just like this that holds 8 rods You will need 2-12ft 2inch pvc ,12 pvc T jointsand 4 end caps, pvc glue and thats it . If you want add a bungee chord around the whole thing and hang your lures from there to be rinsed off. Takes about 20 minutes to build and will be great storage for brushes,rods,gaffs,lures,etc..

Rod vertical cuts were 11 inches .. And the horizontal end pieces were 2ft and get 2 Hollow T joints for them to slide fully onto the 2 inch PVC.. .. The cuts in between each rod holder for me was 3 inches but I think 4 would of been a little better if your carrying anything bigger than a 50 w reel

Steve Pfaff 03/07/2013

Nice job. Would you share the cut length (pre-glued)of the rod verticals and the three horizontal end leg sections?

Eddy Jones 03/07/2013

Those Calabash boys are pretty Sharp!!

Tim Gray 03/06/2013

I'm ready to get to use them now!

wb 03/06/2013

Corey Bellamy .. 03/06/2013

Exactly right Rickey... That blacks gonna be tough to keep up ...

Capt. Rickey 03/06/2013

Great idea and I'm sure you don't want them scratching your new Cape Horn.

"Bag of Tricks" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/02/13
 

Trey joined me for a half day of backwater fishing. We started in some well known hot spots and started with all my usual tricks. It would do no good for me to tell you what  we finally caught our fish on today. I pulled out an old private stash of discontinued baits that only come out under special circumstances. The bite was tough for us today and special circumstances is what it took to put a few fish in the boat. Trey landed his first redfish today. Trey had another one on that appeared to be a little bit bigger than the first but pulled the hook. The reds were not very aggressive with their strike today. On the other hand, the trout that we caught busted it! We landed about half the bites because the wind was blowing just enough to keep a bow in the line. We still managed to bring some good eating back to the dock. Make no mistake about it though, we earned it! Trey, thanks again for coming out and fishing with me. Hope to have the opportunity to put you on some bigger reds in the future. See ya on the water!

"March Madness" | Real-Time Update | 03/02/13
 

1st Mate Derek and I left the dock at 10am this morning for an early season adventure with Ron Komich and Dave Picha. Fishing in 40-50 ft of water we caught and released dozens of the "endangered sea bass." Conditions were beautiful for our first trip of the year. The true madness of March was the quality and quantity of the bass. being released. However, a great start to a new season with a couple of really nice guys.
