"In my Backyard?" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/02/12
 

Cary and Scott joined me for a half day backwater trip this morning. Cary is an offshore fisherman wanting to learn a little more about the backwater. Little did we all know that we would be fishing in Cary's backyard this morning. We landed several flounder just mere yards from Cary's dock this morning. I think he was a bit suprised! Scott  just came along to catch some fish! Both angler's caught their fair share of flounder, but the trophy size reds and blues were not to be landed today. We are confident we had at least two great opportunities at landing a nice redfish. The bluefish moved in and we could only watch in amazement as we watched huge bluefish boil on 14 inch mullet. Cary was the first to hook up! The fish was 30yds under the boat before he could catch up. Drag screaming to the point of reel explosion! The monster blue finally cut the line on his third burst of energy. Scott hooked up! Scott got about 5 solid 20 to 30 yards of blistering drag screaming runs before the monster blue jumped nearly 5 feet into the air breaking the line upon entry back into the water! Awesome show though! We made a few more stops picking up a couple of nice flounder to round out the day! I really appreciate Cary and Scott for choosing to go fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"Bonito" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/02/12
 

Captain Chris Dew took some folks out for a short near shore trip Wednesday.  The weather was perfect, with a light breeze to keep the no-see-ums away. While the group worked around the 90's an Atlantic bonito hit a frozen cigar minnow on the long line. 

 I could tell it was an Atlantic Bonito, because it was in the Atlantic.  Had it been in the Pacific, it would most likely be a Pacific Bonito.  A further dead give away was that it had no upper teeth.  These little tips will help you discern an Atlantic Bonito from it's cousin in the Pacific and will help you tell the difference between it and a tuna. 

Members of the charter were Tim and Melissa Lesher, Billy Mitchem, and Justin Crawford of  Seymour, Tenn., along with Bill Wood of Winston Salem.

Thanks for fishing with us and we hope you enjoyed your charter!

"Tug Life" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/02/12
 

Captain Zach Faulkner took a few days off from his new career on a tugboat to hit the blue water with Richie Heycock.  The tug life must have made Zach hungry for the deep water because they put the hurt on some mahi!!!!  Poor Richie was wishing the spring away and yearning for June 1st.  NOAA said put that fish back Richie!!!!!

"King Machine" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/30/12
 

Sea Tow OIB Captain Charlie Wilson sent me this picture of a real gas saving king machine.  27 ft Contender or my jet ski..decisions, decisions.  I would be funny to win the Jolly Mon on a jet ski.

By the way, IF you don't have Sea Tow you should get it.  It is the second best purchase you can make.  The first being fishing gear from the OIFC.  However we have SeaTow membership packets at the OIFC.

"Take Time" | Get Busy | 04/30/12
 

Taking time to spend time on the water with friends and family on the water. So many of my charters are 3 generations or families down on vacation that have'nt seen each other for years. The fishing is heating up around OIB. Air and Water temps in the low to mid 70's.Following a tip I got from a freind I headed up the Shallotte River to put a couple of flounder on my table and spend some time with my friends and family .We fished live bait along with Gulp New Penny shrimp and Gulp swimming minows. 1/4 to 1/2 oz red heads depending on the current. Fish them slow keeping contact with the bottem. Mullet minnows are showing up a little early this year in the back end of creeks.

"Ben and PaPa Speir" | Get Busy | 04/30/12
 

PaPa and Benjamin Speir took to the Jetties for some grandpa and grandson fun this weekend.  They had a big time with some blues, a slot red fish and many protected sea bass.  Of course they released them.  It's part of a good PaPa's job to take a grandson, or granddaughter fishing on a beautiful day!

What is that bait I see in the picture?  Are we to believe that is what they used?

"A King On A Top Water" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/30/12
 

Jon Sweeney and Jon Davis went to the Atlantic Ledge Sunday morning.  They said it was a nice day overall despite the choppy ride back.  The Jon and Jon team caught 2 kings, a shark and lost a couple of fish that hit downrigger. The kings were on the small
side 10 and 16 #'s however after they got back in, they met was a guy from the
campground at the Shallotte Inlet who caught a 25.8# king by  the Shallotte Inlet buoy.   He was messing around with a freshwater Rapala minnow when he caught the king. 

 The first picture is of the kings from the Atlantic Ledge. The second picture, with the SUV in the background, is the king the guy caught outside the inlet

"Fighting the Blues!!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/30/12
 

John and Margie joined us for a half day trip yesterday afternoon. We arrived at our first location to find the tide still rising. Little peanut pogies were working along a grass point just ahead of us. We baited a few hooks and set up. Our minnows were disappearing off the hook with little indication of strikes. Margie gets hit hard and the fish headed straight for the boat. We caught up to the fish just in time to feel the line go slack again. We made some adjustments...John gets slammed! I thought my reel was going to explode. The fish took about 60yds. of line at wahoo speed, turned back around heading straight past the boat. I was coaching John to hang on and put pressure on the fish. As the fish got 10yds. past the boat it breached the surface leaping nearly 3 feet into the air! What a BLUEFISH! After some incrediable angling by John, we landed a monster bluefish for our backwaters. Margie was up next...with bluefish hanging around like that, I was getting doubtful that anything else would be around. Margie gets a bite...the fish takes about 20yds. pretty quickly, but swirls on top showing us the perfect eye spot on its tail. Nice REDFISH! Work on 'em girl! Margie had her hands full, but in the end she wins the fight boating a nice 25" red. We decided to change gears and end the day trying to catch a flounder for supper. Our first three lines in the water produced nice flounder. We boated 12 to 15 flounder in the last 30 minutes with four nice keepers in the mix. We ended the day releasing a flounder to catch another day. I love it! Thank you guys for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"Big Whiskey Scouting" | Get Busy | 04/30/12
 

  Chris Campbell sent a report on a scouting mission he went on Sunday.  Here it is:

"I know it looks like the Lochness monster, but unfortunately The camera I was using  isn't that good at a distance from far away. I worked around a couple of buoys off Tubbs (bigger one and smaller one). There were tons of birds working and thick bait along bottom. The big cobia looks "small" from the wide angle  lens but this was the first pass of the bigger cobia I saw on top....he was at least a good 30-35+, other one was about half that.....

He came back up and nabbed the back of my prop wash cigar minnow and then spooked off. The wind kept picking up so I decided to call it a day...

But if anyone is wondering about cobia moving in yet (cause i haven't heard any reports) - this is about all the blurry physical proof I have."

With Cris' fishing and photo skills, I have the cobia are here.  Add that to the king that have been seen (and caught), the spanish, trout, catch and release sea bass, with the awesome in shore and Stream bite, there is little reason not to fish!

I love photographic evidence and Chris is the best.  Click this link for the coolest fishing video I have seen lately!

"Inshore Slam again?" | Get Busy | 04/29/12
 

Yep my crew did it again. I appriciate this group of guys making me look good. They fished hard and made it come together. The Tubbs inlet bite has not turned on like I had hoped it would. Last year I caught over a hunderd flounder in Tubbs by now.  I took a good look at the inlet and it won't  be long before it closes up. You can't get into the east side backwaters at low tide now.

"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
