"Couple of Random Pics" | Get Busy | 04/18/12
 

Finally, after we've tried to get the pics in the right format, I happy to be able to share Kevin Sneed's wahoo trip the later part of last week.

Also enclosed are a couple of photos of Howard Cheek's black drum.  No doubt the fishing season is here!  In shore, near shore or off shore there's something for everybody.

"Hound Dog Finds Spanish" | Get Busy | 04/18/12
 

Captain William Parker and his wife Pat headed to the Youpon Reef this morning.  William said when they arrived they saw Spanish busting all over.  They deployed an Alabama Rig with 00 Clark  Spoons a fair distance behind the boat,  All was going well until William called me to say he had a big Spanish and the action was hot.  As soon as he put his mike up the action shut down!  But there is going to be no freezer burn on these fish.  They became tonight's dinner.

But they did weigh a citation Spanish.  Click on this link to see the Parkers at the OIFC dock with their theme song.  Dancing With The Stars....Not!!

"Catching Bait" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/17/12
 

Here is a quick video on what bait, where, when, and how I have been catching it. Live finger mullet have been producing some flounder and red drum for me here in the past weeks. Artificials have also caught there fair share of both as well. However, as a dedicated guide I like to keep my boat fully stocked with options! I love it! See ya on the water!

"New Video Service from OIFC" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/16/12
 

Many of you have gotten to know Terry Johnson, new OIFC staffer.  He came on board in March and has been working his way into the system.  Besides becoming an expert T-shirt folder, Terry has also been honing his video skills; taping fishing trips and editing them into short "video diaries" to chronicle the fishing day.  He has been practicing for a month now and his videos have been playing in the OIFC daily.  But now Terry is ready to take it to the big-time and I'm excited to now offer "Video Diaries" for charter customers.  If you come on board a charter fishing adventure with us you will have a choice to have your trip videoed, edited, posted to You Tube and copies sent to all fishing party members.  It is a great way to remember the trip and relive it until the next adventure.  Here is Terry's first "OIFC Video Diary" -- filmed last Friday with the Fulcher party - check it out, pretty cool.  It gives a good idea of how things operate on board an OIFC charter boat.  Great job Terry!

"Blackjack" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/16/12
 

Pattie Hughes sent me these absolutely stunning action shots from William Froley Hughes, Billy Nobles and a couple of anglers ( I don't recognize) trip to the Blackjack aboard their 31' Yellowfin the "Bay Pirate" Saturday. They brought 5 mahi to the boat using Blue Water Candy Jags.  Not a bad way to start the season!

"Friday The 13th Hangover" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/16/12
 

Johnathan Sweeney submitted this report:

 I Finally got a chance to go offshore and do a little king fishing.  It started out as a terrible morning.  We got a late start, the down rigger broke on the ride out, and then after getting about 10 miles out the gps stopped working.  We got to the Frying Pan Tower and ended up getting 3 Kings and a nice Spanish in the boat.  It was awesome because I got to
 catch my first king which was between 20-25# . After a 20 minute fight we ended up breaking off something of pretty good size but we never got a chance to see it

    We saw a large school of cigar minnows beside the tower and  decided to have some fun with the sabiki rigs. We caught and released many small minnows, about 40  endangered black sea bass ( some up to 8#) and 1 red snapper.


 We saw the OIFC Cat going out  to the gulf stream.   We were just head and to the left of ya'll heading out this morning (Saturday).  I read the report and it looked like ya'll had a pretty good day on the water.  I'm really looking forward and ready for that live bait king class to get here.

Thanks for the report!!!

"Capt. Jeff Eternal Reef follow up" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/16/12
 

Capt. Jeff just noted Eternal Reefs being loaded in Calabash.  I have been in contact with Marine Fisheries on this because they are being dropped on the Jolly Mon Reef off Ocean Isle.  Apparently the Jolly Mon reef is preferred by the Eternal Reef group as it is just outside state waters (just over 3 miles) but still very close and accessible.  They plan on using this reef frequently to drop Eternal Reefs, thus enhancing fishing strucuture continually- plus, you can know you are fishing over somebody's grandpa, grandma......  isn't that heart warming! 

Capt. Rube is hot on the "feeding station" program and he is poised to set up at the Jolly Mon reef in near future- stand by for report.

"New reef hotels with meaning." | Get Busy | 04/15/12
 

I've always said my final resting place would be with my friends fishing or diving around me. Well today I saw  Eternal Reefs placing reef balls on a shrimp boat. These reef balls contain ashes of loved ones to be added to the Jolly Mon reef tomorrow. A really great Idea WWW.ETERNALREEFS.COM  A boat out of Calabash will carry loved ones out to the site.

"Good Luck Capt. Zach" | Get Busy | 04/15/12
 

Capt. Zach Faulkner has gone on to try his hand on a Tugboat.  He had said he wanted a career on the salt water and so it begins. We at the OIFC wish Zach good luck and tight lines!

Zach text me early this morning and told me he'd be steaming by on the Island Express.  I loaded up my English Bulldog "Tugboat" and headed for the old Sunset Bridge to get some pics..Here they are.

PS..Zach said they let him run the boat from the Ocean Isle Marina to just past the OIB Bridge and he didn't even hit anything.  Good luck Bud!!

"Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Williams" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/15/12
 

Congratulations! Today Mr. and Mrs. Williams celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary! Yesterday they started their celebration by taking a little fishing trip with us. As is should be, ladies first! Dorrie was the first to hook up and it was an over the slot red drum for South Carolina. We took a few pictures and released our first fish of the day to fight another day. Alan was next and he made quick work of another nice upper slot red. The bluefish started to take a toll on our bait and I am not a big fan on feeding the blues. We moved on out into the ocean looking for some action on the bottom. The black sea bass, blues, pinfish, and toadfish are thick. However, a few flounder and gray trout are in the mix. We kept very busy weeding through various fish until finally snagging some beautiful gray trout for supper. Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya on the water!

Ok, I had a blast, and set 4 records.... The biggest fish, the smallest fish, the ugliest fish, and the most fish caught at 1 time. — with Alan Williams.

"The Sea Assault's Maiden N.C. Voyage" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/14/12
 

The Sea Assault's maiden NC voyage was today. This is a new 34 ft. Sea Vee owned by Lee Forbis, with the crew of Ned Garber, Bob Newell, and Web White. This wahoo fell for a pink skirted Capt Joe Shute lure on a planer rod in the prop wash at 100 /400 in 73 degree water . Also the crew boated 5 gaffer mahi, a Blackfin tuna, and a king.

What a way to introduce the SeeVee to the N.C. waters.  Thanks for the report Bob.

We decided to fish a little further off today, hoping for Marlin. Fished 10 00' and found good numbers of Mahi, nothing big. Kids had a good time and Katelyn caught her first fish!
