"Change of the tide." | Get Busy | 05/19/12
 

There is nothing like knowing that when the tide changes the fish are going to turn on. I set up my afternoon trip to fish the first part of the rising tide. Hoping that even with the 20+ knot winds and 50 degree weather that it was going to go off. First stop within a 3 wood of the OIFC docks we lit them up with a handfull of redfish. We picked up and moved down the ICW only to bust out more redfish,black drum and a MONSTER sheephead. We over extended our welcome there and moved over to Tubbs Inlet only to find a good flounder bite. We did stick our nose in the Shallotte River long enough to see that the water is so dark I could'nt see the bait in the livewell.

"Inshore Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/19/12
 

The conditions have been less than favorable for fair weather fishermen. My crew yesterday was up for the challenge regardless the conditions. The wind and current was so strong at times, using the trolling motor in combination with my anchor would not hold our position. We managed to land a few short flounder, but had quite a few bites. The conditions were making it tough to feel the bite. I decided to change gears and see if the redfish would cooperate. We worked the docks along the Northern side of the waterway because they were a little more protected from the North East wind. The bite started off slow...but then the teacher showed up and school was in session. We worked on several redfish in the lower slot around 18 to 22 inches. My crew was all about catch and release, so those fish are there for our future enjoyment! Ethan, 15 years old, landed our best fish of the day. A nice 26 inch redfish that was weighed in, picture taken, and released at dockside. I will be fishing with  Ethan and Leth again on Tuesday. I hope the fishing stays the same and the weather gives us a break. Pictured below is Ethan, Leth, and Capt. Casey Reeves with our best redfish of the day weighing in at 6.4 pounds. Thank you guys for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"Back to OIB" | Get Busy | 05/18/12
 

Well everyone knows how hard the Captains at the fishing center try to get the fishermen that fish with us on fish. So when the fish or weather don't come together and we can't make it happen we take it to heart. I took the week off to travel down to Floridas west coast to tarpon fish. Well 3 days of fishing in pouring rain and breezey conditions made for tough conditions for Capt. Josh and Capt. Matt. Hard as we tried it just did'nt happen. Floridas clear water is a double edged sword. I hate when you can see the fish but can't make them  bite.So 15 hours on the water and not a single bite but to worry I will be back.

"Jolly Mon Reef feeding station update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/16/12
 

The good news is Rube and Brant restocked the Jolly Mon Reef[AR460] feeding station today with approx 300lbs of dolphin/wahoo carcasas. The bad news is it was so full it sunk. Damn, back to the drawing board. Fortunately a thunderstorm came up preventing a rescue attempt, so will make another shot tomorrow. We are committed to this project, but as we said from the beginning, this is experimentation, so will keep working until we come up with a workable system.

"Bananas? Myth Busted!" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/15/12
 

Steve, Rick, and Daniel joined us for a half day backwater fishing trip this morning. We had some serious rain yesterday along with wind and lightning. Those kind of conditions can make the next day of fishing tough. Then, as I am helping my clients load their stuff on the boat. I ask if they had anything in their bag that they didn't want to get wet like cell phones, camera, etc...I got a really bad answer...nah, just some bananas and rain gear...WHAT! BANANAS! Wow! Could the conditions stack up against a Captain anymore than that. No problem! I will just blame it on the rain and bananas. Well, somehow we overcame the conditions and  banana myth landing several nice fish today. I can't even imagine what we could have done without the bananas. Thanks for fishing with us guys! Still yet, looking at Steve's flounder he may consider leaving the bananas at home next time. LOL! See ya on the water

"Pogy netting ban" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/15/12
 

To: Dr. Louis Daniel[Louis.Daniel@ncdenr.gov]

Please pass on to the MFC members my thanks and congrats on passing the menhaden purse seining ban for all of the NC waters. Whether this action is a result of concern about wiping out the food source for the early winter Bluefin Tuna migration, or concern for pressure to reduce the netting in the Chesepeake Bay thus forcing the netting operations in to our NC waters, the result of this action by the MFC is excellent. Just what is needed to enhance and protect our fisheries. Good work!
