"Like a Light Switch..." | Tiberias - 22' | 08/18/12
 

August is the dog days of summer...the fish are feeding...much like a light switch...we have had the great priviledge of finding that "on" switch for about 45 minutes several times this week. When finding the red drum, they have been hitting hard and furious on live mullet minnows. Flounder have also been hitting the mullet minnows hard. The Fall migration is getting started and the fishing should get really good in the coming months. Not to mention some cooler temperatures making this one of the best times to be on the water! Black drum and Speckled trout have been hitting live shrimp on a carolina rig or under a float. Its all coming together...don't miss it! Thank you all for fishing with me this week! See ya on the water!

"Reds,Specs and Shrimp" | Get Busy | 08/17/12
 

August has been a fun month of running and gunning deep holes in shallow creeks. Popping corks and carolina rigs. Fish them high, low and in between. One of the spots I found only because while in route to another spot I saw a 24" red sky a school of minnows a foot out of the water. Get up early and just look along the marsh and watch the speckle trout blowing up minnows and shrimp skipping across the water. At least the water temps have coolled down to the mid 80's. Don't forget to take your corks and gulp shrimp. A small mouth bass fisherman from the Great Lakes rocked the Gulp Shrimp one day this week.

"Brant med report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/17/12
 

We have finally made it out of the medical wing and over to the rehab wing. The Docs made the decision that irrespective of his nerve pain, more important mentally and physically to get off the super heavy drugs and start the rehab process. And boy were they right....100% improvement in mental attitude as he has now had 2 rehab sessions and he is fired up and ready to get at it. He has requested extra time above normal schedule. They are holding him back for now but I forecast very soon he will be setting his own schedule. I think we can officially declare ...We have turned the corner!

"Blistered" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/16/12
 

Corey Bellemay (Choice of Two), and his uncle Patrick fished in 65 ft deep water a couple of days ago and scored pretty big.  Corey said he caught one of his kings on the Yee Haw Fish Call, which you can see in the picture.  By the way the other one is bleeding, I'm wondering if he didn't shoot him.  Also you'd think folks who grew up around the ocean would know to wear sun screen.  Corey said Patrick was blistered when he showed up to go fishing and stayed that way.   We sell UV shirts at the OIFC Patrick and anyone else who doesn't want to get blistered.

"Local fishing legend Jerry Lewis dies" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/16/12
 

Jerry Lewis, who captained the "Misconduct" for many years at OIB died this week at age 83. Back in the 80's and early 90's Jerry was the undisputed wahoo king in our local waters. His boat the "Misconduct" had a sound to the engines that I always felt gave Jerry a unfair advantage to us fishermen. The boat would draw wahoo to it. His friendly smile will be missed.

"It's Me" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/14/12
 

I wanted to take a moment and thank all who have sent their well wishes and sympathetic regards.  I have undergone 4 major surgeries, all repairing bone breaks and displacements.  The miracle in this terrible tragedy is that no internal organs or the spine were injured in the 40+ foot fall to concrete.  I am currently fighting terrible pain as a result of being weened off pain meds, which is necessary to move on to rehab therapy.  Trust me, this is tuff!  I have never felt such pain. 
I have incredible support from my wife and family.  I will try to check in and keep you posted.  Thanks again

"Cape Fear Sail Fish Classic Wrap Up" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/13/12
 

 Stormy conditions and a slow bite were the story of this year’s CFSC, but 10 hardy souls did enter the event, and gratefully, we raised almost $3000 for Cy’s World. The team of Reel Squeal, captained by Kent Moore won the largest dolphin day 1, and Mitzi-Chevious, with Jai Isear as Captain, won the second day dolphin.  Each winner will receive $500. Reel Squeal reported seeing sails balling bait late on Sunday near the Schoolhouse, but couldn’t get the fish to co-operate.  All in all, the tournament committee and family would like to thank the generous sponsors and donors who made our efforts successful, despite the poor fishing. The silent auction art of a copper sailfish brought $200, and a handheld GPS donated by Bailey Marine brought $100, and the jet skis were won by Lee Forbis. The skis were donated by the Murphy Family. Also, the canoe was purchased by Stewart Williams, and raised $300.

 

Thanks again for all the hard work and dedication to this unique fishery.

 

Best,

Bob

"Old Ferry Park Pier" | Get Busy | 08/13/12
 

Read that title 3 times real fast!!!  As mentioned in a previous report Andrew Williams caught a 20" flounder fishing there the latter part of the week.  He said he was using the Deluxe OIFC Mud Minnows when his fish hit.  The left over minnows were released unharmed and together in a canal to fight again another day.

We knew the flounder bite was good on the AR;s. but it's nice to see them still being caught on the inside.  I am also happy to report it was caught at the park pier.

Thanks Andrew, and the minnows thank you too.

"Cape Fear Sail Fish Classic Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/12/12
 

The following is a report from Bob Newell regarding the Cape Fear Sail Fish Classic:
10 brave teams entered the 3rd annual CFSC, as weather conditions were both windy and unsettled due to the presence of numerous thunderstorms. The committee gave the teams the options to fish any 2 of 3 days.  The event began with a fabulous best ever pig cooked by co-director Will Newell, along wi Mac/cheese, collards, hushpuppies, and slaw from Jacksons Big Oak BBQ . We raffles a pair of top notch jet skis donated by the Murphy family ,won by Lee Forbis. We had silent auction items and raised nearly 3000 for Cy's World. The sailfish bite was slowed by poor water conditions and the storms, largest dolphin was on the Reel Squeel, who also reported seeing sails balling bait on Sunday, a good sign!  Also, Sunday large dolphin was brought to the docks by Mischevious.  So good times, great family/friends, and A super cause.
Best to all,
Bob aka BlackDog

"Maddie's 1st Flounder?" | Get Busy | 08/12/12
 

Maddie Julian flounder fished with Captain Tommy Helms Thursday near shore at an AR.  Tommy said he thought this may have been Maddie's 1st flounder.  Regardless, I bet it was the most flounder she's ever caught at once.

Also, Andrew Williams stopped by the OIFC and showed us a pic. of a 20" flounder he caught at the Ferry Landing Park Pier on the ICW at OIB.  Andrew was using OIFC mud minnows when he caught his fish.  He emailed me pictures, but I can't post them for some reason.  I'll work on that.

Congratulations to Maddie and Andrew.  We knew the flounder bite was hot at the near shore AR's, but it's nice to see them biting in shore too.

"Brant update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/11/12
 

Yesterday he did a difficult surgery #4 to rebuild a bone in his wrist and move nerves around in hopes of stopping the extruciating nerve pain he is experiencing. I spoke to the surgeon afterwards and he said it all went well and he continued to be optimistic. I asked him where Brant's surgical needs stacked up over his years of experience and he answered quickly that Brant was number 1 as his most challenging case as he had never dealt with so much broke stuff. Brant will be happy to know he is #1 and on top of the leaderboard! His pain this morning he describes as "different" which we think is encouraging as hope is it's surgical pain and not nerve pain. If the nerve thing can get fixed, he will be 1000% better and can begin to wean off the massive pain meds he is on. Think things looking up.

"Puddle Hopping" | Tiberias - 22' | 08/10/12
 

What a week...we have had to cut trips short, reschedule, and run from the rain showers just about everyday this week. Despite mother natures challenges I have managed to put a few fish in the boat on every trip this week. The redfish bite remains to be the best action for me. Black drum, trout and flounder have also been in the mix this week. The plan for action remains the same as last week, floating live shrimp under a cork or live minnows on a carolina rig. The trout bite has been early in the morning and the drum bite has been in the deeper holes along the ICW and Little River Jetties. Best trip of the week goes to the Riddle Family! I wish everyone could catch'em like that! A big THANKS goes out to all those that fished with me this week. I really appreciate the business! See ya on the water!
