"Lookahoo it is..." | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/30/12
 

Our very own Dr. Terry and Derek braved the near mirror like conditions getting out to bluewater today. The pair said they boated several kings and a nice wahoo. They reported that the King mackerel were jumping out of the water like Spanish mackerel. They were everywhere! Well, they were somewhere on a nice temperature break just inside of the 100/400. I looked at the surface temps this afternoon and a nice break of 67.5 to 70.5 degree is just inshore of the 100/400. The Kings love that temperature! The weather conditions are awesome this weekend, so come on down and get your fish on! See ya on the water!

OK folks, the OIFC is about unleash a new era in fish reports. As I write, the back room genius is uploading the program that will add a "comments" section to each fish report. Now you, the viewer, can comment on any posted report. From "hey I know that guy", to "nice catch!". It will be all "G" rated comments and monitored closely by OIFC staff. We hope this addition will enhance the viewers experience. Stay tuned--- oh yeah, first mate Derek and Dr. Terry Johnson are offshore today. I will post their findings as soon as I know. AND- did you see where the Great White shark "Mary Lee" came right in to the OIB pier then headed down the beach and literally swam up the Cape Fear River, nearly to the Southport waterfront!!! It is wild to watch the movements of this monster shark. I believe the shark will spend time between the Frying Pan and Cape Lookout shoal as this is the time of year the Right Whales migrate off our coast. ANd what does a 3500lb shark eat? Stay tuned for a fish report and the new "comments" section.

What does a 3,500 lb shark eat? Anything she wants..

Matt Sobota 12/01/2012

Great Job on your website love the new comments section. Will allow everybody to give a little feedback and improve fishing for all of us. The Mary Lee story is great I find myself looking at the OCEARCH.COM website a couple time a day to find out where she is. It sure looks like she follows the bait and other big gamefish areas out there working the east side of the shoals and now moving to some of the offshore wrecks and hardbottom areas. I like how Mary trolled the gulfstream from cape cod to jacksonville hitting the steeples and 100/400 on the way. We must be doing something right.

Capt. Brian V 11/30/2012

Love the comment section..I check the OIFC fishing report every day..Can't wait to see some offshore pics from today!!

David Bowman 11/30/2012

I love the new comments section! And yes, that is wild about Mary Lee, the Great White shark, coming so close to the pier at OIB and in the river at the Southprt waterfront. It is exciting to track it through ocearch's web page.

"Mary Lee and a Bluefin Tuna Connection???" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/30/12
 

Well folks, the big news around here the last few days has been a Massive Great White Shark that has been patrolling our coastline... Yesterday she actually went up into the Cape Fear river for a short time then swam out, crossed the shoals and took up residence on the east side of Bald Head Island... Today, she has reversed course and is patrolling along the shoals between the nuckle bouy and the Fairway Bouy... What is has her out there you might ask??? Well, last Sunday I left Southport to fish the gulf stream. When in the area of the nuckle/fairway, I witnessed literally thousands of gannetts raining on the largest pod of Pogeys I have ever seen.  There were porpoises and pilot whales all in the area as well... Now, I hate to cry wolf but I seriously doubt a 3500 lb shark is out there feeding on pogies... My theory, and its just a theory is that Mary Lee is out there feeding on delicious sashimi of the bluefin variety... Sharks have the ability to hone in on feeding activity from literally miles away... I think she sensed the activity out there and has moved out there to get in on the action... All the conditions are right for there to be some tuna's out there and I will be watching Mary Lee very closely over the next few days to see if she hangs out in the area.  If she stays around, it will validate my theory that there is something to fish for out there.  We have a beautiful weather window this weekend so it might be a good time to go out there and drag some horse ballyhoo on Bluewater Candy Jags to validate my theory... I may give it a go myself...

SOMEBODY GET SOME VIDEO PLEASE

Rube McMullan 11/30/2012

The first requirement to be a great fisherman is the ability to tell a great fish story. Capt Steele....you have arrived. I am fired up! And I bet lots of other folks are too. It's been almost 5 years since the Giant Bluefin wintered in our local waters. I think you have hit it on the head[or fin]. The Bluefin are coming...the Bluefin are coming...sound the alarm. You can bet Mary Lee has the best intel available so apparently she decided a trip from warm Florida to our local waters would solve her culinary requirements. She's hanging around waiting for the Bluefins to round the shoals at Hatteras and Cape Lookout, and then vavoom; she'll have found the dining table, set just perfect for her....and all us fishermen who now have a case of tuna fever thanks to you!

Wahooligan 11/30/2012

Youre right, great white tend NOT to feed on fish once they hit maturity. They switch to a steady diet of marine mammals!!!





"Wahoo" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/29/12
 

Below is a picture of Joey Brinn with 4 45-50lb class wahoo he caught on the 26th at the 100-400.  The 2nd picture....What can I add?

Wondering what to get that special fisherperson in your life.  How about a Capt. Brant Custom Pogey Net.

I ran across this picture of us filling a net on one throw during the Fall Brawl.

"GREAT WHITE HUNTING EXPEDITION- THIS WEEKEND!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/28/12
 

ATTENTION:  A 17', 3500 lb Great White named Mary Lee is headed our way.  Currently this monster Great White shark is about 5 miles off North Myrtle Beach (roughly in the vicinity of the General Sherman wreck).  This is no lie.  The OCEARCH group you see on TV that tags the Great Whites, tagged this Shark off Cape Cod, and it is now right here in our back yard!  To see the shark's movements, go to www.shark-ocearch.verite.com
While there, take a look at the history of this shark's movements, it is really cool!
On another note, the weather is looking really good for the next several days, including the weekend.  The King bite is very good around the Navy Wreck area as well as the Twin City Wrecks area.  Wahoo and Tuna action has been reported at the normal haunts- Black Jack, Steeples........  Let's go get'm !!!!  Keep you eyes peeled for that BIG dorsal fin--  Duh Duh..... Duh Duh...... Duh Duh, Duh Duh, Duh Duh Dudddddddddddddddd !!!

"3,000 lb. GREAT WHITE off NC/SC Shores" | Real-Time Update | 11/28/12
 

Taking a chance here on this story ... Jo O'Keefe just called in to OIFC, and she suggested we review the www.ocearch.org website to see the current path of a "marked" Great White off our shorelines. To track this behemoth fish, just go to the website and click on Global Shark Tracker and follow the cues to the NC/SC shoreline on the map. You can see precisely where the Shark has been and is headed. Ms. O'Keefe, who says she has followed this "Mary Lee" Great White for a very long time, was just trying to get the word out on this unusual occurrence in our coastal waters, since it is of "Leviathan" proportion. Again, go to the following website, and check it out for yourself. www.ocearch.org

"OIFC Tournament Dates 2013" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/27/12
 

Many of you have to make vacation plans well in advance.  As such, I have updated the 2013 OIFC tournament schedules- Jolly Mon, Far Out Shoot Out, Fall Brawl -- see the "Tournaments" menu option off the home page for new dates and tournament information. There is still a long Winter to get through, but maybe we can think of the great things ahead to help us get through.

""The Secret Feather"" | Real-Time Update | 11/27/12
 

Retired OIB resident, Major John Jernigan (Army Medi-Vac helicopter Pilot - Vietnam, Desert Shield and Storm, Afghanistan), recently shopping at OIFC, shared his unique trout fishing "secret" with Dr. Terry of the OIFC Staff. He has a special recipe for trout fishing in the Cherry Point Marine Air-Station area, launching from Paul's Landing at Slocum Creek. Using primarily specially rigged "Minnow Lures" (see photos), he has managed to, in his words, "To slay the speckled trout consistently in recent weeks." Furthermore, he adds, "The secret is the feather; that's what makes the bait so potent." John replaces the rear treble hook with a fly and treble hook combination on different size Minnow Lures (17's and 18's). Sometimes John also uses "solid pink DOA" lures, 5"/13cm Jerk Shad (Watermelon with Rea Glitter) fishing with 7' Starr Rods and Penn Reels. John concludes, "I'm not a big-time fisherman; I just like to fish ... I fish for fun and enjoy it a lot, just like putting these stingers on ... My buddy and I came up with this idea, and we enjoy every minute of it." Thanks for sharing this "secret" with everyone, John! It looks like a great way to attract the big trout. Reporting for the OIFC Staff, Dr. Terry

"Dr. Terry and Son" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/26/12
 

Terry and son Hans joined me for a quick fishing mission this afternoon. What a beautiful afternoon! I managed to muster up a few live mullet minnows and we were off to the races. The first mullet got drilled, we were catching more than fishing and thats the way I like it! Most of the reds were just short or just in the lower slot. Hans was the first to boat a really nice one right around 25 inches. Terry continued to work on the 17 to 19 inchers. I decided it was time for me to get in on the action. My mullet got drilled and the fish headed for deep water. It feels like a good one fellows! Yep! Line stripping! The fish rolls and showed us clearly that he was an upper slot red. He's fat too! He might be a rodeo fish? Yep! A nice healthy 26 7/8 redfish weighing in at 7.5 pounds. Good enough to slide into second for now. We caught a few more lower slot reds and the bite slowed. We made a move and changed tactics. I wanted to show Terry and Hans how to work artificials. It was not long before they got the hang of it. They started landing trout, reds, and even flounder completing Inshore Carolina Slams! It was awesome to get out on the water today and just enjoy great fellowship! Thanks Terry and Hans! I enjoyed it! See ya on the water!

"Ocean Isle Beach Christmas Regatta" | Get Busy | 11/25/12
 

The Ocean Isle Beach Regatta was held on a cold Saturday night.  The almost freezing temperatures didn't deter a crowds of people from the Inlet View Restaurant all the way down the Intracoastal Waterway to the commercial canal past The Ocean Isle Fishing Center.  The water parade of over a dozen beautifully decorated boats was lead by the OIFC's own Capt. Jeff Beck aboard the Brunswick County Sheriff's new boat.  His helpers were his wife Courtney and of course Team OIFC/Do Work's Jr. Angler Camdyn who manned the air horn, siren and wished everyone "Merry Christmas" over the P.A.  Santa, Mrs. Clause and a helper arrived aboard the Brunswick Co. Sheriff's center console Parker.

The OIFC has mega plans for next year's Regatta.  I'm in hopes he will let us "Griswald" up the place.  We will see!!!!

"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!
