You saw Barrett report about fishing in Charleston; the underlying reason fo r the trip is to compete in the Rugged Maniac event- a 5k obstacle course. Anyway check out who Y and I ran in to. OC is on the water with half day trip. Sea Bass in sure but they are also o n the look for Bonito. I'll report. Jacob and Jeff both have inshore trips. Stay tuned. Capt. Brant McMullan

"Quick Charleston Trip" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/23/12
 

Capt Bonecrusher Sauls and I are down in Charleston this weekend for the "Rugged Maniac" fun run with fellow OIB Crossfitters. But first, while the women were shopping we snuck out for a couple hours of inshore action out of Isle of Palms with a local guide. We quickly located several schools of red drum and caught a few fish each up to 10lbs. The last fish of the day was a true tree shaker. Check out the picture of Bonecrusher holding this 75+lb Drum! Holy smokes what a surprise. He was an old creature living in about 2 feet of water. Awesome. Not a bad way to spend the afternoon.

"Back Water Spring Day" | Get Busy | 03/22/12
 

Kevin Sneed sent these pictures of a back water red fishing trip he and Kimber Alford took today.  Kevin said he was using a custom OIFC spinning rod with a Shimano Sahara  which made a perfect in shore combo.

Couldn't have said it better myself.  Thanks for the pictures and the report Kevin.

Thank you Larry and great fish guys!!

"Report from DC protect our right to fish rally" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/21/12
 

My observation of the event is initial puzzlement of why more progress can't be made on the issue in that several of the most powerful Democratic Senators in Congress spoke in favor of the effort to modify the Magneson=Stevens act to relax the rules in favor of flexxibility for fishery management. Senators Kerry, Shumaker,Frank[and others]; on the Republican side Senator Scott Brown[and others]. The point is there is bi-partissan support for the effort. So, why can't it get anywhere? The answer is apparently the other 90% of the inland folks in Congress don't have a dog in the fight and apparently aren't interested. SO.....step #1 is define the problem....step#2 is figure out a solution. Standby, this one needs some thought, but having made the trip, it was very enlightening. This one should be solveable, even dealing with national politics.

Thanks to everyone who took their time to come and support the effort. Let's figure out a new plan of attack.

"RFA rally" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/21/12
 

Here we are. Bus ride wasn't too bad. Crowd is down by half at least from 09'. Congressmen on stage strutting their support..... Funny thing is PETA is here too. Me and Barrett had to take the topportunity at a photo op, talk about being out of place: mini skirts and high heels? Really? They are getting an ear full from this crowd. Stay tuned.

Pictured is John Kerry on stage, a heavy hitter showing support.  Good mix of bipartisan support; seems like no good reason why things should not be able to get fixed.

"Selah's 1st Red" | Get Busy | 03/20/12
 

Tim Greene took his children fishing around the Sunset Bridge aboard his Key West when his little girl Selah caught her 1st Red.  She was using a small pinfish as bait.  The boys were jealous.  I've always said ladies make better anglers!!

There is not much of a better feeling that seeing the look on a child's face when they catch their 1st fish!!

Thanks for sharing Tim.

"Heading to DC in the Morning" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/20/12
 

I have to say that I am pretty upset at this moment.  I had a bus full of "committed" fishermen; all signing up and then recommitting at a later time.  Suddenly today "things" have come up with many of them.  Trust me, you think I want to take an entire day just a week before our Spring Kickoff - there's PLENTY to do at the OIFC (not to mention flat calm seas to go fishing on), but I have committed, Iam going.  It will be interesting to see this rally participation as compared to the first.  When we went back in 09' we filled up a 50+ seat bus with ease, having people on stand-by.  This year we had to team up with Tailwalker Marine and "had" a 35 seat bus full, now there will be plenty of room with all the last minute fall outs.  I'll post pictures and a report on the bus ride and the rally.  I'm disappointed in those that have pulled out, but thankful for those who will be joining us and fighting for our right to fish.  Maybe progess will soon be made.  Stay tuned.

"Dr. J" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/19/12
 

 Jay Murphy and  George "The Dredge" Macon fished a little inshore of the 100/400 Sunday.  The ocean was 175 feet deep and 73 degrees. They had one short bite and one break off with all but one being on a red and white, not to include the 2 1/2 in the picture below. The big wahoo weighed 50 lbs.  Not sure what the 1/2 weighed.  It appears the camera man was a little slow on the draw.

Not only did Jay apologize for the butchered fish, but he was even more apologetic for Bill, who was "Tebowing" in the picture.  As per Jay Bill is a Georgia fan and just hasn't figured it out yet.

By the way..don't you wish you'd entered the Rodeo Saturday when you were talking about it...Snooze you lose! Just kidding!!

"RFA DC RALLY- HERE WE GO AGAIN !" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/19/12
 

We still have  few seats left on the bus- cost is $35 per head.  Bus will leave OIFC on Wednesday at 4:15am and arrive to DC about 11:30am.  We rally til 3pm and then hopefully load up and get home before midnight -- Come join the excitement; I bet your kids could even get an excused absence for this excursion!  Email me at captbrant@oifc.com if you want to join -- thanks.

We are fighting for our rights to fish, and we must show our support for the cause.  This rally really needs to turn out numbers to show continued unity in this fight.

"Morning of Fishing" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/19/12
 

Jake, Moma, and myself hit the water for a few minutes this morning. We didn't have to go very far to catch a few fish. Jake had a blast reeling in 10 trout and 2 redfish. I missed several strikes, but I also managed to get 2 trout and a redfish to the boat. Most were on the small side, but lots of fun!

"Sorry for the delay on the report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/19/12
 

Was on the water all weekend and am just now getting my thoughts straight.  First let me tell you.  The weather was outstanding on Friday.  My crew consisted of the OIFC's own Capt. Chris Dew, the OIFC's newest Clerk/Photographer/Jack of all Trades, Terry and Richard Boles, his son Richie and Richies close friend.  We arrived in the area inshore of the Blackjack by about 8 oclock and before we had the whole spread out, had our first Wahoo on the line.  Richie faught the fish like a pro and brought it boatside in relatively short order, the gaff was sunk and the 40lb Wahoo was in the box. 15 seconds after I reset the flat line, it popped and the Tiagra 30 nearly exploded.  This fish pulled close to 400 yards on the first run.  After a 30 minute battle with the fish, the line went slack.  We were very dissapointed at losing this monster wahoo.  Back on the troll now.  For the next 3 hours the action was constant with single and multiple hookups of Bonitas and Barracudas.  We then went to the Jigs.  On the first drop, a monster Trigger Fish.  Second drop, Monster trigger fish.  We then got into an absolutely crazy Lionfish bite, catching one after the other.  All of them 4-5 lbs... Houston, we have a problem... They are thick offshore.  What happened next was something I have never witnessed.  We caught 2 huge Hognose Snappers on jigs... All in all, it was a great day on the water with steady action.  The trolling bite up and down the line was relatively slow.  Sounded like the bite happened down towards the Winyah but we had a great time none the less.  The bite is improving but you really need to keep an eye on the water temps.  Dont assume you have to go to the numbers at the break.  Its ok to fish in shallower water out there...

"A Getaway Adventure" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/18/12
 

Michelle Evans Drake, wife of Jeff Drake was joined by David Christian and Ashley Komoroski for a blue water trip this weekend.  She said the bite was fair,  they caught a few mahi, had several short strikes and some break offs.Otherwise, great to get on the water.

I asked Michelle to marry me because she washed the boat, mowed grass, washed the boat towels, fed Jeff and the labs BEFORE she ate and relaxed.

"Got Busy" | Get Busy | 03/18/12
 

What a day on the water with Allen Collins and Steve Kennedy from Hope Mills. Fished the areas behind Sunset Beach and the spoil islands along the ICW.  We did venture into the Shallotte River to complete the inshore slam of flounder ,trout and drum. Gulp shrimp for the trout and live mud minnows for the flounder and reds. The surface water temps where as high as 70 degrees at dead low tide.

"Reel McCoy" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/18/12
 

Yesterday, Daniel Simmons, Brian Freeman and "Big Kevin" went to the blue water aboard Daniel's Contender the "Reel McCoy".  Actually they went to the 100/400, the same place the "Dirty Martini" had been a couple of days prior.

The guys came to the OIFC with the wahoo in the picture.  They said they released some other blue water fish.  Daniel weighed a 41.1 lb wahoo for the rodeo which puts him in 1st.  Brian reported a warm eddy at the 100/400 which was @76 degrees.

Note:  Jeff and Daniel both said I could disclose the location in an effort to save everybody from burning a lot of fuel hunting for the fish.

Also my apologies to Kevin..man I've got a mental block on your last name!

BRAIN LOCK CORRECTED!!!!  Kevin isn't Kevin...He's really Brian Robbins!!!  Also Brian Freeman is actually Bryan Freeman.  I am going to start wearing a name tag so I can remember who I am.  Getting old isn't for sissies!!!!

"Just Killin Time" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/17/12
 

Worked in the store this morning and lots of people were out fishing today. I have not heard any reports back from anyone, but I am sure someone caught some fish today. It was absolutely gorgeous! Our backwaters are alive! Baby mullet minnows are as thick as I have ever seen them. The flounder should have plenty to eat this year! My Mom just got into town for a visit this afternoon, so a fishing assault has been postponed. I did talk my Mom into walking down to the dock for a few minutes which allowed me to make a few cast. Honestly, we were just enjoying the weather and having conversation! Apparently, a flounder wanted to join in on the action, my chartruese soft plastic on a 1/8 ounce jighead got slammed by a nice flounder. Who would have guessed? Supper on the table...See ya on the water!
