"What a Flatfish! " | Tiberias - 22' | 05/29/12
 

Jesse, Patrick, Paul and 6 year-old Lanny joined us for a half day backwater adventure today. I concentrated on getting Lanny a fish on first. First cast and something rather large hit the line? Lanny did an awesome job at angling and landed a 12 pound skate! Not exactly the flatfish we were after, but lots of fighting excitement! After a few toadfish...we finally landed a keeper redfish. As we were just finishing up with pictures, another rod went down hard! Patrick was on the rod and battling with something with some shoulders? Once the fish ran back past the boat several yards up current...I was thinking large bluefish or skate. After a serious battle, Patrick landed the 23 pound beast! Meanwhile, Lanny was working on what I thought was another toadfish, but the fish started taking drag just a few feet from boatside. Not a toadfish? Lanny lands another nice lower slot redfish. Purdy work right there little man! The action was much slower that anticipated so we moved to find some more action. We hit several holes before finally finding a few flounder. Jesse, Patrick, and Paul weeded through some small ones as Lanny and I keep the hooks baited. We finally brought home the bacon with two solid keeper flounder! Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya on the water!

"Alyssa's World???" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/29/12
 

Jimmy, Jerry, and Alyssa joined us for a half day backwater adventure. The action started fast and furious with Alyssa catching a nice redfish on her first cast. After a few toadfish and a couple more reds we moved on to find the flounder. Most of the flounder were too small to eat our mullet. We switched over to tiger minnows and started catching, but only managed one solid keeper. Tough to find the keepers, but we had steady action. Thanks for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"Chase Citation" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/29/12
 

Randy and Chase joined us for a half day backwater adventure. The action was pretty slow with only a couple of reds and a few flounder. We may have lacked on the quantity side, but the quality was great. Chase landed a 5 pound flounder! Chase should be recieving a nice certificate from North Carolina for such an exceptional catch. Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya on the water!

"At The Sherman" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/12
 

Captain Chris Dawson was joined by the Martin family from Lake Erie today.  The weather was perfect for a charter and they decided to fish the General Sherman.  That was a good decision as they brought 3 cobia and a spanish back to the dock.

Speaking of spanish, it appears this weekend is shaping up to be beautiful so don't forget about the Ocean Isle Fishing Center Facebook Challenge this Saturday. " Like" us on Facebook, weigh in between 5 and 6pm and have a chance to win a $100 OIFC Gift Card!

"Before the storm" | Get Busy | 05/29/12
 

Stewart and Leigh Ingram came out on the Get Busy Fishing bay boat this morning to test thier skills on some tough Redfish. We hit some docks along the ICW early however the tide was slow to move but when it did the switch was flipped and bite they did. Deep holes in marsh grass creeks. Thanks to Will King and Chris Echart for helping me catch bait . It payed off today. Here are a couple of pix, all fish were released to fight another day.

"Calm(er) Waters" | Get Busy | 05/29/12
 

Capt. Tim Gallimore hit the water Monday and sent the following report.:

These fish were caught on Monday afternoon after all the jet ski terrorists left the water. My l'il lady out fished me once again. Courtney Waddell caught 2 keepers in  Tubbs using Pogies on  Channelside Rigs.The biggest fish was 19" other one 15.5" .

I hated to break the news to Tim but I bought one of Capt. Brant's rental skis and am now what we fishermen used to fuss about.  I did put a rod mount on it and slip up places where boats can't get.  I'm not ALL thst bad.

"Tommy's Carp" | Get Busy | 05/29/12
 

I'd been wondering where my buddy and angler extraordinaire Tommy Helms had been.  I haven't heard from him because he's been struggling catching flounder this spring.  Tommy reported that the bait was the best he's  seen  in years but as far as he was concerned the flounder in shore had caught lockjaw. So he had to slip outside to catch these "carp".

The question of the spring is...Has Tommy lost his touch?

"Hit or miss?" | Get Busy | 05/28/12
 

The weather that is. Storms rolling by East to S.E. winds gusting to 25kts. Nothing to do but hide out and catch fish. Saturday the first day of the east wind was tough on everyone. Sunday the winds calmed down and the fish did bite. Today was steady bite. Using everything in the books. We managed to put a few fish on some dinner tables this Memorial Day weekend. Fishing the ICW early before the boat traffic started and moving to the Shallotte River mid morning.

"OIFC update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/28/12
 

Touching base from the OIFC.  We have had our head down and working hard to make all the island visitors feel welcome at the OIFC.  I am happy and thankful to all the folks who have stopped in and shopped with us.  The real bummer this weekend has been of course the tropical storm that has whipped up the wind and seas.  We had north wind Saturday AM and Sunday AM and were able to get in some nearshore fishing for Spanish and Blues, but other than that, offshore fishing has been a bust this holiday weekend.  The inshore guys continue to do well on Flounder and Redfish- Capt. Jacob and party had another 5+ pounder yesterday.  We have seen a transition over the past couple of years towards inshore, and with all the recent obstacles to offshore fishing, you can certainly see why.  Anyway, thanks again to all those who have made it down.  Besides the wind, it has been a nice weekend.  The OIFC dog crew of Fin, Mac and Fisher have been on-site and hard at work as well. 

See you at the OIFC --
- Capt. Brant McMullan

"Beryl Rolled" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/26/12
 

Our second little tropical depression has developed just off the coast of North Carolina. It is not even storm season yet! Jerry, Dale, and Brian joined us for a half day backwater adventure this morning. We were locked and loaded with fresh live mullet minnows. We had several bites with a couple of nice fish breaking or cutting us off. It has been hard to tell lately what is really on the line until you actually get a good look at the fish. Some really large bluefish have been hanging around in several places in our backwaters this year. Strange? We ended up landing several reds in the lower slot 19 to 22 inches, one flounder, and an average size bluefish. I think we had a great day considering the conditions. Either way I enjoyed having great company on the boat this morning! Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya on the water!

"Ty and Pat" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/25/12
 

I had the great priviledge in taking Ty and Pat out fishing today. We started off pretty quickly landing several reds in the lower slot 19 to 22 inches. The bite slowed on the redfish, so we got after the flounder. The flounder were suprisingly a little bit more stubborn that I would have expected today. We did find two nice keepers for lunch. The best excitement was again the monster bluefish. We had three opportunities to land another 10lb+ bluefish today. The first one made several strong runs...Pat managed to stick with it and get the monster boatside. The bluefish made several more burst just out of reach of the dip net. I made two attempts to net the fish, but both times he was able to jump over the net. The next hard head shake and the line was cut. Ty hooked up almost immediately after us missing that fish. Ty's fish ran off some serious line as it was riding the swift current. After about 100yds. the line finally was cut. I changed some rigs over to wire and set some large baits out. We hooked up! Pat was back on the rod...she battled with the fish for a bit...the fish was headed right at us and staying deep...then straight up out of the water. HUGE BLUEFISH! He spit the hook at us. Dang it! Wow! It sure was exciting, but a picture sure would have been nice. We will get'em next time. I enjoyed fishing with Ty and Pat today. Thanks for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"Sticking With It" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/24/12
 

The redfish bite was on fire  the first part of the week, but has slowed just a bit. The flounder bite continues to be what you can count on right now. Stick around long enough in the right spot and a monster bluefish might just show up. We tried for redfish again this morning, but tide was much higher than I anticipated. We started picking through the flounder finding three nice keepers for lunch. Things are surely going to pick up as the moon grows. Another tropical storm is also out there stirring things up and hopefully pushing more fish inshore. Sometimes you just never now what you might catch when a storm is approaching. Special thanks to Leth, Ethan, Michael, Felix, and Mr. Atkins for fishing with us this week. See ya on the water!

"2 Big Cobia" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/24/12
 

Jim Bowen sent this report in of a 36 and 40 lb cobia caught on the CutN'Loose Captained by David Cutler in 60 ft. of water.  They got one hooked out of a school of 8-10.  When this one came by the boat they pitched a bait.  After about 45 minutes they had two very nice cobia in the boat.

Wee appreciated the report Jim.

"1st Red" | Get Busy | 05/24/12
 

Below is a picture of Geoffrey Kotlarsic with his first redfish.  He caught it within 500 yards of the OIFC. Caught on a live pogy with a Carolina Rig, on a kayak. We had a couple break offs but this one managed to find his way to the house. This 25" fish pulled this fella's kayak all over the place. Its amazing how strong a 6# redfish is when you are in a kayak. Geoffrey just caught his first flounder just 2 weeks ago. This guy is hooked!

Thanks to Tim Gallimore for the report and the picture.

"warming up" | Get Busy | 05/24/12
 

The fishing is starting to heat up. The rains of last week muddied up the waters but things are about to clear up. The flounder bite is steady around the inlets at times of high tide. Low tide has been the time to target the redfish. It has been a great week at OIB. Here is a mixed bag of pix from this week.

"Memorial weekend fishing/weather report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/24/12
 

It looks like the weekend will see north/northeast winds high enough to discourage offshore fishing for the weekend. Thats the bad news; the good news is the pogies have arrived on the beach and at Shallotte Inlet both directions. What this offers up is a all out assault on beach King/Cobia fishing this weekend. It should be fishable within couple miles of the beach as our islands face south, thus protected from a northerly wind. It will be flat right on the beach, and spots like Yaupon, Lockwood ledges, Milliken ledges should produce kings and or cobia. Also try live baiting around the pogy schools for kings or spanish/blues trolling. We will re-stock the Jolly Mon Reef AR460 feeding station with fresh carcassas so that also is worth a shot. Looks like it will be a bluebird spring Carolina coastal weekend, just perfect for beach king fishing.
