"Gulf Stream School Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/29/12
 

Captain Brant and the members of his Gulf Stream Fishing School fished just off the Scarp today catching many mahi, two of which weighed 34#, and 34.4#.  Brant said he found what looked to be an abandoned raft made of logs lashed together, floating and started fishing around it.  That's where they hooked up to the biggest bulls.  He said the fish were typical mahi and hit almost everything they threw at them.  Brant ended by saying the scattered weeds were bad.

The school members were:

Butch Myers of Black Mountain

Lamar Singletary of Charlotte

Jamie and Shane Wallace of Mooresville

"Stream class report" | Real-Time Update | 04/29/12
 

We had a nice day on the water today. The swell running offshore was aggrav ating but fishing weather was great. Bad news is scattered weed was terribl e; it was tough fishing, constant work. The class worked together to mainta in a spread of 5 lines. We picked a couple small Mahi before the large Mold craft Marlin lure on the inside rigger was hammered. The fish took a lot of line and fought hard, never showing. Butch Meyers angled while the crew wo rked lines as they boated a very nice Mahi- 30# class. As we were resetting I noticed 4 small Gulls circling and then something floating caught my eye. It was big, maybe some sort of broken up raft that had large unfinished timber and rope. Anyway, it was on. We made a pass and doubled with another Mahi in the 30# class and the Cow. Another boat came up on us and would you believe stopped and began jigging the debris, totally pushing us and the fish off. Bad eticate! We caught a couple smaller Mahi and moved on. Through the rest of the day we boated a few more Mahi amidst the unrelenting weed. We did not have a bite from any other species. The floating debris made the day as were lucky to find it. The class did well and certainly learned how to work lines compliments of the scattered grass.

"Artificials Working!!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/28/12
 

I got up first thing this morning so I could get live mullet minnows at low tide. The mullet minnows are showing up and the predator fish are following. I tossed a few live minnows around the Ocean Isle Bridge in the hopes of catching a rodeo red, but only had one bite that quickly broke off in the pilings. I moved around hitting one hole after another with no action. I decided to get on the move using artificials to cover some ground. Trout were the first to strike...all 6 trout were short of the 14 inch mark. I continued to cover ground and found a flounder...Then a big bite! Something just about took the rod out of my hand...it was a quick release as I pulled the hooks. I fished that area a while only catching one more trout. I continued to move...found a few redfish...got a nice 26 3/4" fish to weigh for the rodeo. Looks like the red drum race is going to be tight. I broke off three more fish before finally landing a nice flounder. Bass Assassin's 4" Sea Shad in sand trout color came through today! I love it! See ya on the water!

Sometimes we all wish we could be a dog. I have a feeling that Fin will mak e us all jealous for many years. He seems to have taken on the role as OIFC mascot and is all ready quite skilled. Come visit Fin and Mac at the OIFC.

"Weekend Plans" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/26/12
 

The wind has been BLOWING !!  But, we are hoping for a weather window that will allow us to get in trips on Saturday and Sunday.  I expect Saturday will be decent, probably sloppy on the break in the warm water.  Sunday could go one of two ways, great or horrible.  We will of course analyze in the early AM's before we leave, but right now plan is for both boats to be on the water this weekend -- VHF 19 -- Black Jack area most likely.  Hope to see you on the water.

"Passing fronts" | Get Busy | 04/26/12
 

Making it tough on fishing and even harder on catching. Between the wind blowing and the rain. The inlets are totally mudded up. Slow down your baits and keep fishing. They will bite.

"We Need Your Support!!" | Get Busy | 04/26/12
 

The OIFC's own Katelyn Kincer's picture has been nominated as The SaltWater Fisherman's  Fish Babe's On The Month.  No offense to the other young ladies, but we all know the OIFC and it's supporters have the most beautiful ladies in the fishing world! 

  Miss Katelyn is not only "easy on the eyes", but is a beautiful, highly intelligent angler who fishes inshore and offshore as well as occasionally serves as 1st mate.  She is definitely loved by all the OIFC children and represents the qualities the OIFC family stands for.

Let's join our collective OIFC supporter powers and vote for Katelyn!!  Click on this link to cast your vote!!!

"Break in the Weather" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/25/12
 

The wind has been howling...The weather broke about mid afternoon today and I was feeling quite a bit better after another dose of the stomach flu. I headed for the OIFC to check on the mud minnow tanks. Mud Minnows will be fully stocked tomorrow morning. The tide was about right to go hit my secret bait catching spot. Mullet minnows were thick! I made a few cast getting plenty for a little fishing myself this afternoon. I made a short run to a spot that has not produced in a few years, but decided to give it a shot today. First cast produced a nice flounder. Second cast produced a nice trout. I caught 5 flounder and a trout in about 45 minutes. I made a move back towards home and decided to give the Ocean Isle Bridge a shot. Capt. Brant gave me a visit and took video of me catching another nice flounder under the bridge. The flat fish are here and biting well! I love it! See ya on the water!

"Bluefin Video" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/24/12
 

If you recall a couple of months ago Team OIFC travelled to Oregon Inlet for our annual Bluefin Tuna harrassment outing.  We carried very talented film maker, Chris Campbell - this has been out a while, but I've been lax in making it public to all --

Check it out-- Click this link -  http://vimeo.com/38964238
