"Pair of Drum" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 03/08/16
 

~Eddie Rowell and Darien Crumbley hook up at same time with a pair of reds that hit artificial bait at the jetties on March 6. Fish were released after picture.

******Lesson learned.  Please do not hold the reds vertical they will die.  It shifts their guts around inside.  Hold them horizontal.  Not being critical, a lot of folks don't know this.

Probable true for all fish?

"New Moon" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/08/16
 

The new moon was yesterday and the tides are ripping. The water temperatures are on the rise and are consistently holding in the mid 50's. I expect to see water temps reach the lower 60's by week's end or early next week with the forecast. Redfish are holding really shallow in the backs of the creeks. Trout are hanging around the edges of oyster bars closer to deeper pot holes. A few flounder have also awakened in the shallow warmer waters on the flats. Live mud minnows did not produce the red hot bite I was expecting yesterday. We ended up catching most of our fish on 4" Sea Assassin's in various colors to include: Chartreuse, White, and Albino ghost. The Little River jetties has been seeing some action with folks tossing Vudu Mullet and the New! Vudu Rattling shrimp. Redfish and trout have been the main ones biting at the jetties. It is time to schedule that fishing trip. Lets go! See ya on the water!

"Guatamala day 3" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 03/07/16
 

We went 14 for 41 on Sailfish. The ocean was slick and the fish were cooperating in giving us shots. I think 15 of those 41 were me trying to catch one on fly, but I finally succeeded. The girls got much better at feeding fish on circle hooks which is a skill for sure. Experience, experience, experience-- we also spent most of the day working on "specialty shot" for No Limits TV which will begin airing the new season in May. We got some good stuff I think. Chris Campbell will be putting together some "teasers" when we return. Headed to the airport now and back in NC tonight. Capt. Brant McMullan

"Guatamala day 2" | | 03/05/16
 

Day 2 the weather really helped us out. The ocean was near flat for the ride out and most of the fishing day, which allowed us to run to the southeast where the body of fish had been pushing. Beyond that, the calmer conditions allows the bait and switch style of fishing to be more effective. In all we raised approx 20 Sails and brought 7 to boat side. The highlights included Robin feeding, hooking and landing her first Sail by herself. Chris hooked and released a Sail off the teaser. We pulled the Dredge Pro and got some pretty good footage of Sails coming into the teasers. I jumped over and swam with a Sail to release it and got some footage, BUT THEN, as I'm swimming back to the boat I hear everyone in the boat yell OH MY GOD! HUGE! And point behind me. Now think of me, in the middle of the ocean, 1000s of feet deep....... Apparently we had spent two days fishing and at this exact moment when I happened to be in the water at this exact spot a 100' Humpback Whale surfaces and blows; less than 50' from me. Good news is I didn't happen upon this whale while swimming with the Sail or else I may have died on the spot. Bad news is I the whale went as quick as it came and I couldn't get the GoPro turned on in time to get a shot. You'll just have to take my word on it. It was a good day and we accomplished a lot toward making some great new No Limits Fishing TV. We have taken today off, touring the nearby city of Antigua and tomorrow is our last day of fishing. Stay tuned. ** gotta love my headwear in this photo. I sacrifice all dignity in order to get "the shot". Capt. Brant McMullan

"Guatamala report" | | 03/03/16
 

Day 1- it was a bit sloppy this am with winds 15-18kts and a head quarter sea. We ran out about 20 miles and set a spread of two teaser chains with circle hook ballyhoo around them. By Guatamala standards it was slow fishing as we went 2 for 6 for the day. Amy and Robin both caught a Sail and we did get some good footage for the 16' No Limits Fishing TV. After a long day of fishing it's nice to hop in the pool at Costa Verde Hotel. Tomorrow is a new day and in fishing, every day is a new day. There were some boats that did see 20+ fish, so we need to find one of those pockets of fish. Stay tuned. Capt. Brant McMullan

"Fish Co is OPEN!" | OIFC | 03/02/16
 

That's right, after a short winter hiatus which included a complete overhaul of the kitchen, staff, and menu, we are back in action at the Ocean Isle Fish Company beginning tomorrow, Thursday, March 3rd.  We will be open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week.  We are very excited about the changes we've made and believe it will greatly enhance the dining experience at the Fish Co.  Basically we are new, recharged, and ready for action but with the same great view and atmosphere.  We look forward to seeing everybody again soon.  Come join us this week/weekend and let's give this spring season a kickstart at the Fish Co.

"No Limits Fishing - Southbound" | OIFC | 03/01/16
 

OIFC No Limits Fishing TV show is southbound.  Tomorrow, Amy and I along with our camerman extraordinaire Chris Campbell and his wife Robin are heading to Guatamala for a few days of fishing and filming.  We will be fishing with Capt. Mike Webb of Morehead City who owns a charter operation in Guatamala, his Winter retreat.  I don't have a lot of details on where we are going, but I understand its a nice, safe area with LOTS of Sailfish.  Guatamala is known for its Sailfish in particular.  One of the cool things about this adventure, is Capt. Mike, Pelagic Sport Fishing, allows his customers to be the mates.  Instead of sitting back and letting the mate do all the work and simply winding in the fish, I'm looking forward to rigging, baiting and learning the fishery.  One thing for certain about this fishing is that it will help you to become a better drop-back, circle hook fisherman.  Chris Campbell has all his tricks packed including drone and dredge pro so we will hope to get some great footage and put multiple episodes of the 2016 OIFC No Limits Fishing TV show in the can for 2016 - the new season will begin airing in mid May.

I will do my best to update our progress.  Keep an eye to the OIFC Facebook page and this report.  Stay tuned.

"Overdue Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 02/29/16
 

With how cold and windy its been, its been all repairs and enhancements here at the OIFC. Capt. Brant and I have been working and reviving a new addition to the fleet – an old classic 31’ Contender cuddy. It’s been a long five-week journey of knuckle busting and heat shrinking but she’s finally coming together. From a fishing standpoint, there has been a heck of a wahoo bite just north of our typical Gulf Stream spots. The Swansboro Hole, The 272, and The Same Ole Hole have produced double digit catches for most boats fishing out of Masonboro Inlet and Carolina Beach Inlet. Bottom fishing inshore of the break has been producing quality fish as well. Vermillion snapper, black sea bass, and even a few cobia have been caught in the 35-45mile range. Anyone have solid info on our cobia fishery? The last I have heard is the limit is now one per person. If anyone else knows more on this regulation, please post in the comment section below.          

Lastly, I apologize for the lack of updates on upcoming tournaments. The details regarding the cobia tournament I mentioned a few weeks ago, will be available the second or third week of March. I’m designing this tournament to be a family oriented, low entry event that will also include a TWT to benefit veterans. The next tournament will be the Jolly Mon VIP. For information regarding that tournament CLICK HERE . With all the new additions and tournaments the OIFC will be introducing, this fishing season should be one for the books. Spring can’t come quick enough!  

Below is a picture of fishing friend Bryan Dressler's Crew and their haul from 2/28. Looks like they were nibblin!
