"Bald Head Rodeo Recap" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/02/12
 

Well, our day 2 didnt go so well.  We were greeted with a VERY stout 3-5 foot steep chop which hampered our ability to use our speed and range like we wanted to, to go deep and find a good class of fish.  We fished the 20 fathom line, catching a handful of fish but like the first day, just didn't get the numbers we needed to contest the leaders... I do want to offer a special word of congrats to John Munroe and the crew of the Office 2 for their victory in the Bald Head Rodeo 2012... They led both days and held off some stiff competition going into day 3 for the victory.  Capt. Joe Seegars and the Crew of the Hooked Up were in second place after 2 days and unfortunately were pushed to third today with the Reel Quick bringing in a very nice Wahoo to add to their points, additionally, the crew of the Reel Quick released 2 Sailfish bumping us to 2nd place in the Billfish Category... We had hoped for a repeat of our first place Billfish finish last year... Perhaps we can bring it back to the Over Equipped/OIFC next year...

"Company Outing" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/01/12
 

The crew from the OIFC all loaded up with Captain Chris Dew for a few hours of fishing.  Since the sea bass season just opened Captain Chris figured they'd give that a shot.  Then along came a nosey cobia and Derek made his day.

"Show'em How It's Done!" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/01/12
 

Glenn, Nolan, and Nick joined us for a half day backwater adventure today. After yesterday's lack of action, expectation were a little low. We had several flounder chewing on the baits with in the first 30 minutes of the trip, but not getting the hooks in them. Finally, Nick lands our first short fish. The flounder just did not seem to be hitting hard today, so we changed gears. The next line in the water and drag was peeling of the line. Daddy Glenn of the group was on the rod and showing his two boys how it's done! Glenn landed a respectable 5 pound black drum. Oh yeah! Normally black drum are in schools, but we only got one more small one out of that hole. Moved on around, found a nice school of reds in the lower slot 19 to 21 inches and a 12 pound skate. Daddy Glenn again put the hurt on the boys finishing off our day with a stud 7 pound 26 3/4" redfish! Thanks for fishing with us guys! I hope the Gamecocks can make it 4 in a row this year! LOL! See ya on the water!

The Ocean Isle Fishing Center Facebook Challenge is postponed.  The sea conditions will certainly make the challenge less than fun.  I'll let everyone know a new date.

"Buckeye Inshore Grand Slam" | Get Busy | 06/01/12
 

I had the pleasure of fishing with some of my Ohio deer hunting buddies today. Nothing like catching fish while talking deer hunting. With plenty of fresh deer cam photos of monster bucks on thier phones I can't wait to get back up there. We managed 7 redfish, 1 trout ,3 flounder and a 1/2 dozen black drum in 2 1/2 hours. This bite just before the front was awesome. I did stop and talk to some guys dragging a shrimp trawl. The shrimp are starting to show up but are still on the small size. Pogies are plentyful in the ICW. Be sure to stop by the OIFC for new cast nets,tackle and 100% reg gas. P.S don't let Ambers smile fool you, girl can shoot a deer and dress it.

"Chillin" | Real-Time Update | 06/01/12
 

Don't you wish you could do that. Fin hard at work. Sea Bass season opened today and despite being a little choppy Capt OC and much of OIFC staff join ed forces for a morning of Bassin. Limits were achieved while fishing 65' of water and a Cobia got in the way too and got a free ride back to the OIFC. I'm looking forward to Sea Bass dinner. See you on the water.

"Bald head rodeo" | Real-Time Update | 05/31/12
 

Well? I fished day one of the bald head rodeo today with Team Over Equipped aboard their new 34 Yellowfin... Day started slow with a small blackfin, a mystery bite and then a small yellowfin tuna. Mid day we were assaulted by a school of hungry sailfish, missing every one of the 4 bites, making us look stupid... We put the spread out made a pass and hooked up, catching and releasing one sailfish. From there it was slow.... Finally with an hour and a half to go, we found the mahis... Doubles and triples for an hour and a half straight saved an otherwise slow day. Currently we are sitting in 5th place and leading the billfish... Will there be a repeat of last year? Stay tuned....

"Near and Far" | Get Busy | 05/31/12
 

Near.....Jason Sessoms was down from Aiken, SC visiting family and managed onto 4 over the slot drum Sunday.  Below is a picture of the largest, measuring 34".
Bob Newell (Black Dog) promised he would send great fishing tales from the Bahamas crossing.  He reported they are in the Abacos. Bob said generally, the bite is 2 to 8 miles straight off the beach on the change of tide at Tilloo Cut. They have basically missed 2 whites, but had enough mahi for dinner, and his crew , aka Ned Garber, Casey Johnson, and Andrew Sanderson jumped on board the Stinger for a half day last Tuesday with some folks they befriended from Florida, and they released 2 blues before lunch!  The crew is still waiting on Mr. Blue to show up on the Black Dog, But meanwhile they have plenty of snorkeling, traveling to different islands, and just general all around fun.  I
Bob said he would recommend a Bahamas crossing to anyone of the regulars  at the OIFC, He is taking plenty of notes and has a chart plotter full of fishing spots.
Thanks for the reports guys!

"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
