"When life gives you lemons.." | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/31/16
 

Yesterday was one of those days where surrendering to mother natures wrath was not an option. Most offshore fishermen have been in this situation; that moment when some belief bouncing around in our fish filled minds tells us that no matter what happens, it’ll all be worth it at the end of the day. Whether the belief involves improving weather conditions or a red hot bite 60 miles away, sometimes our inner instinct tells us to push off the dock and get after it.

 This belief was fueled by a crew that was bound and determined to go fishing and have fun while doing so. Brady, Nikki, Haley, and Cole O’Neil accompanied first mate Paul Eagle and I on a six-hour journey that turned out pretty productive yesterday. After discussing the rough offshore conditions, we made the decision to run up the ditch to an area near the Cape Fear River mouth to target nice sized whiting. The action didn’t begin with a bang yet as minutes turned into hours, fresh whiting for dinner was becoming more of a reality. Haley had the hot corner of the boat by reeling in over eight whiting in just under an hour. Once we reached our fun limit with the whiting, we decided to pack up and head offshore to lighthouse rocks. Upon arrival we were immediately greeted by undersized sea bass. Most fish were in the 9-11 inch range however there were a few fish caught on the 12.5-inch mark. Eager for the O’Neil’s to catch a keeper black sea bass, I repositioned the anchor and the keeper bass started to cooperate. After catching a few for dinner, we headed back to the hill perfectly content with what we made of a forecasted horrible day.

Overcoming adversity is key to having a successful fishing trip this time of year. The weather and the fish may not always cooperate but thankfully the O’Neil’s were determined to make things happen. Great job guys!

"Look like a Pro!" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/23/16
 

I don't always catch fish, but when I do, I look like a Pro in my HUK fishing gear! HUK gear is awesome! High performance gear that keeps you cool, dry and stain free. It is back in stock for now. Better come get it while supplies last as this is the hottest gear on the market!

Meanwhile, the trout bite has been pretty good in our area. Most are on the small side with a few keepers in the mix. A few flounder have also eased out of the mud getting frisky as the water temperatures are on the rise. The redfish have been tough and seem to be on the constant move. We found them good a couple of weeks ago and they disappeared. Found a few yesterday and the dolphins moved in shutting that bite down. Chartreuse and white colors in many different styles of plastics are working right now. Some of the most common styles are 4" sea assassins, 3" Vudu Shirmp, and 4" Vudu Mullet all are avaiable here at the OIFC. See ya on the water!

"Wahoo Tuesday" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 03/22/16
 

Hit the wahoo pretty good today. Finally a day with good weather and good fishing. We fished a 6 degree break (68-74) and green to blue color change at the south end of the Scarp. You couldn't draw it up much better. The wahoo were knotted up in one area about a half mile inshore of the break in 160'. Once we located them around 11am we picked on them til 3- went 7 for 10. All fish were 30-40lbs. Hot lure heads- JAG 8 and Instigator- both Bluewater Candy. Davis Hallman, Jason, Travis, Jonathan Koon, Cory Thorne from the Charlotte and Columbia areas joined us today.

"Vudu shrimp are working like magic... " | Get Busy | 03/22/16
 

Capt. Jeff says the trout are loving the cajun pepper with chartreuse tail Vudu shrimp (pictures don't lie). 

Lucky for y'all - we just restocked the Vudu shrimp

Stop in and see us.

As always- be sure to send in your fishing reports to info@oifc.com and let us know what your favorite bait is!
