"Hump day Birthday" | Get Busy | 08/23/12
 

What a better gift for your wife than a fishing trip for her birthday. O.K. truth is he forgot and they where here at OIB, quick call Capt. Jeff and lets go fishing. We waited watching the storms rolling just offshore and inland. We fished all morning w/o a drop of rain. The water is a little muddy from all the rain but we did find some trout that liked what we had to offer up. The birthday girl was happy and I even threw in one of my new Get Busy Fishing T-shirts.

"Unsettled weather" | Get Busy | 08/21/12
 

It's hard to make a plan for the day with switching winds and intense downpours . We have managed to find some reallly nice reds ,a few flounder and a speckle trout . The best part is the boat traffic has slowed to a crawl. Time to start hitting some of my favorite docks along the ICW.

"Bay Creek Classic" | Get Busy | 08/20/12
 

Almost six years have passed since Brandon Matthews was working on a deer stand and fell 30 feet from a magnolia tree. The fall broke his c-6 vertebrae, damaged his spinal cord, and left him paralyzed from the chest down. Over time, Brandon has regained movement in his arms, but has no use of his hands or legs. The accident did not break Brandon’s spirit, will, or trademark drive.

      He survived an unbelievable hospital ordeal, healing one thing at a time – shattered vertebrae and arms, fluid in his lungs. After treatment and rehab and the rally of both Wilmington and Southport communities, the reality of his accident set in. His arms and neck were mostly functional, but his hands and lower body were not. For a guy like Brandon – outdoorsman, athlete, writer, chef, builder – this was tough to swallow.

      These years have been all about moving forward, though not without a five-gallon bucket of setbacks. With the help of his incredible wife, Kerry, and adaptive devices that allow him to type, brush his teeth, and hold a fishing rod, Brandon is moving forward. And even without hand function, he’s driving a specially rigged pickup truck. Most importantly, Brandon and Kerry just welcomed a baby boy – Evan Edward Matthews – into their lives!

      Kerry Matthews and the tournament committee are pleased to invite you to the Sixth ? Annual Bay Creek Classic Flounder Tournament. Entry fees, donations, auction and raffle purchases will all be donated to The Brandon Matthews Fund – an ongoing trust that has already funded surgeries, treatment, and specialized items to improve his mobility. Even for a man with such an amazing attitude and drive, there are vast needs and challenges that range from the enormous costs of medication and treatments to raising a child. We can only imagine how far this funding will go to allow Brandon to share a legacy of Cape Fear knowledge with his son Evan.

 Last year we helped spread the word about the Bay Creek Classic Flounder Tournament.  Thys year it has a more special meaning to the OIFC.   Let's support Brandon again theis year.  Click here for all the scoop.

  Brandon is the definition of an outdoorsman. He lived and breathed fishing for at least 28 years, and his passions for history, cooking, and exploring developed out of that time in the woods and water. He is a reflection of the Old Southport tradition of Robert Ruark. Just the same, he represents the new generations of anglers and outdoor enthusiasts.

This tournament is dedicated to Brandon’s living legacy and the invaluable Cape Fear River. Brandon and the tournament staff can’t thank you enough for the six years of support and fun. We look forward to seeing all of you in September – so from all of us, once again – FISH HARD. WEIGH HEAVY

"Comeback Trail" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/19/12
 

I am still here!
 "Capt. Brant" has been met with an injury that has brought on great adversity and life challenge; but I am resolute to fight back.  My fall of some 50 feet onto concrete did not leave me feeling very "lucky", but the facts are that I am the luckiest man alive. 
I am lucky to be alive, I am lucky to not be paralyzed, I am lucky to have a beautiful, healthy family, I am lucky to be able to fish for aliving, I am lucky to have a family to back me up through thick and thin, I am lucky to work at the OIFC; the coolest place to be in the Carolinas, I am lucky to have so many loving friends who care enough about me to take their time to visit and check on me while I'm on recovery, I am lucky,I am lucky,I am lucky,I am lucky,I am lucky...........
That is the biggest thing that I have gotten from this tragedy that I am living.  You often don't know how lucky you really are until you are threatened to lose it.  I have done plenty of deep thinking and soul searching, and I will be making some life changes once I'm able to get past this injury.
But for all you OIFC fans and friends, I hope to be patrolling the aisles and docks of the OIFC in a short time.
Thanks for the support!!!

"Double D's" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/18/12
 

Thaaaat's right!  The OIFC father-son crew of Captain Chris Dew and Mate Aaron Dew were back at it again today at the Shark Hole.  Along withe the fish in the picture they released 5 short kings.  Aaron said they marked a lot of bait but they elected to get straight to fishing using cigar minnows.

The charter was made up of Jared Taylor, Anthony Copple, Andy Crandord, Aaron Taylor, Timmy Trapp and Daniel Leach all of Guilford Co., N.C.

"Like a Light Switch..." | Tiberias - 22' | 08/18/12
 

August is the dog days of summer...the fish are feeding...much like a light switch...we have had the great priviledge of finding that "on" switch for about 45 minutes several times this week. When finding the red drum, they have been hitting hard and furious on live mullet minnows. Flounder have also been hitting the mullet minnows hard. The Fall migration is getting started and the fishing should get really good in the coming months. Not to mention some cooler temperatures making this one of the best times to be on the water! Black drum and Speckled trout have been hitting live shrimp on a carolina rig or under a float. Its all coming together...don't miss it! Thank you all for fishing with me this week! See ya on the water!

"Reds,Specs and Shrimp" | Get Busy | 08/17/12
 

August has been a fun month of running and gunning deep holes in shallow creeks. Popping corks and carolina rigs. Fish them high, low and in between. One of the spots I found only because while in route to another spot I saw a 24" red sky a school of minnows a foot out of the water. Get up early and just look along the marsh and watch the speckle trout blowing up minnows and shrimp skipping across the water. At least the water temps have coolled down to the mid 80's. Don't forget to take your corks and gulp shrimp. A small mouth bass fisherman from the Great Lakes rocked the Gulp Shrimp one day this week.

"Brant med report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/17/12
 

We have finally made it out of the medical wing and over to the rehab wing. The Docs made the decision that irrespective of his nerve pain, more important mentally and physically to get off the super heavy drugs and start the rehab process. And boy were they right....100% improvement in mental attitude as he has now had 2 rehab sessions and he is fired up and ready to get at it. He has requested extra time above normal schedule. They are holding him back for now but I forecast very soon he will be setting his own schedule. I think we can officially declare ...We have turned the corner!

"Blistered" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/16/12
 

Corey Bellemay (Choice of Two), and his uncle Patrick fished in 65 ft deep water a couple of days ago and scored pretty big.  Corey said he caught one of his kings on the Yee Haw Fish Call, which you can see in the picture.  By the way the other one is bleeding, I'm wondering if he didn't shoot him.  Also you'd think folks who grew up around the ocean would know to wear sun screen.  Corey said Patrick was blistered when he showed up to go fishing and stayed that way.   We sell UV shirts at the OIFC Patrick and anyone else who doesn't want to get blistered.

"Local fishing legend Jerry Lewis dies" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/16/12
 

Jerry Lewis, who captained the "Misconduct" for many years at OIB died this week at age 83. Back in the 80's and early 90's Jerry was the undisputed wahoo king in our local waters. His boat the "Misconduct" had a sound to the engines that I always felt gave Jerry a unfair advantage to us fishermen. The boat would draw wahoo to it. His friendly smile will be missed.
