"Shallotte Inlet" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/14/12
 

The inlet buoys in Shallotte Inlet have been moved to what, as of today, is the best route[basically a straight line out]. The only bad place is the last 2 sets of buoys which is where the bar is located however as of today there is at least 3 feet at low tide. There is one red buoy that is reversed in its location from a green, but just follow the line of buoys out and you should be fine. Everyone should mark their own course out the inlet, the buoys are only intended to be a guide and all inlets are subject to change thus the course shown today is only good for today[a disclaimer]. GO FISH!

"Broken Record" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/13/12
 

I know the last few posts have been all about weather and fishing but that's what Spring at the OIFC means... We are really looking forward to getting out on the water sooner than later. If your boat is still winterized or not ready for the long trip to the Gulfstream or you have never been out there and want to see what its all about. Give me a call. We still have spots available for Friday on our Make-up Charter aboard the Carolina Cat. Reports are very good and there are absolutely some fish out there itching to be caught. We are putting a trip together for Friday as it is the BEST day in regards to weather but Saturday is absolutely fishable as well. If Saturday works better for you, give me a call at 910.620.9919 and lets discuss. Cost is $400 per person. This price is based on 4 people. If 5 or 6 want to go, pricing drops. Its cheaper than taking your own boat out there and we do all the work for you.

"All Pumped Up" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/12/12
 

I am sure you can easily tell we are all fired up about off shore fishing.  This is because we have reason.  Capt. Wally Trayah, who fished out of the Oak Island area reported that he landed some big black fin tuna, mahi and skipjack tuna while out around the Gulf Stream.

all this info combined with what looks like a great weekend has everyone ready to go  the Gulf Stream. If fuel is an issue, charter one of our boats and split the costs!

"The weather is here; I fish you were beautiful" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/12/12
 

Whatever you folks are doing inland drop it fast and get on down here to the coast. The weather is magnificent and looks to be that way all week. The gulf stream should be on fire as there is a perfect temperature break. Also it appears the yellowfin may be back after a 5+year disappearance. March used to be our best month for yellowfin and we are hearing encouraging reports of yellowfin being caught.

Everyone knows fuel is high, but just add another person to your crew. Split the cost up enough and it cost the same pre-Obama.

Inshore you can catch sea bass as fast as you can drop it just outside the inlet. I caught a all time record stringer of 6 bass on one drop. It's all catch and release but still lots of fun particuliarly for the young-ins.

Come on down....wahoo...tuna....mahi mahi!!

"Make Up Charter Friday 3/16" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/12/12
 

Early reports are that the fishing offshore is Firing Off... Wahoo's, Yellowfin Tuna and Blackfin Tuna as well as a few Gaffer Dolphin are all cruising and biting on a beautiful temperature break offshore at the gulf stream.  We feel like the gulf stream fishing season is firing off early due to the mild winter.  There has been a very unique and very rare weather window that has boats fishing offshore all week.  Lets go fishing.  I am putting together a make up charter for 4 folks to go offshore on Friday.  Plan will be to troll lures and bait as well as cast topwater and vertical jig schools of Tuna.  Cost is $400 per person.  I have room for 4 folks but can take up to 6 if there is interest.  Come see what spring offshore fishing is all about.  Call me at 910-620-9919 to reserve your spot.

"RODEO UPDATE" | Get Busy | 03/09/12
 

This year we will have blanket entry.  An angler can enter their boat for the year and it doen't matter who on the boat catches the fish.  In fact the owner/captain doesn't have to be on the boat.  The trophy and prize money will go to the boat unless the captain decides to give them to the angler.

The entry fee is $100 per species.

"Ten Minute Fish Break" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/07/12
 

I headed out just like my earlier report suggested. The full moon is tomorrow and we have a front headed our way. My first spot today produced a nice redfish and a few trout. I took a gander up the Shallotte River and the rain has really stirred things up. I gave it a few cast and had one bump. The water was way too dirty for me to stick around. I headed back to cleaner water in the waterway. I made a few cast and another nice red picked the bait up. A few more cast and a little trout drilled the bait. The tide went slack and the wind started to blow. I headed for the OIFC to get a little fuel and pick up Anita for a 10 minute fish break. Watch out folks! These 10 minute fish breaks could make her a contender in this year's Rodeo! See ya on the water!

"March Winds Pics." | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 03/05/12
 

Captain Jacob reported on the March winds.  Here's proof.  Joanne Bouffard took these pictures @ 8 am today near the Little River Jetties.  The winds were gusting to 39 knots out of the SSW.

Thanks Joanne for the pictures.  Next time may I suggest a face mask?

"2012 OIFC Rodeo" | Get Busy | 03/05/12
 

With the 2011 Year Around Rodeo in the books the time has come for the 2012 edition.  This year the divisions have been pared down to 6, 3 in shore and 3 off shore.  The in shore species are flounder, trout and red drum (within slot).  The off shore consists of king, mahi and wahoo.  Captain Brant has some exciting plans for this year's tournament which we'll get out once they are finalized.

Don't forget to pick up your 2011 Rodeo trophies and checks at the OIFC. Just in case anyone wonders how the entry fees to the Rodeo are used, half the money is paid in prize money and the other half goes for trophies.  The 2011 trophies were @ $950 total.  Trophies aren't cheap.  The OIFC puts the Rodeo on because it seems people enjoy the friendly competition.  We don't make a dime.  To my knowledge, no one has questioned how the money is spent, I thought ya'll like to know.

We look forward to seeing everyone this season.

"March Winds!!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/05/12
 

No doubt!!! March is the month for the wind to blow. I just about got sea sick sitting at a stop light earlier today. Oh well! Let her blow, maybe she will blow herself out, giving us a great Gulf Stream season and early King season this year. Don't forget to join us on March 31st to get the season started! We have some great deals on tackle, free seminars, and Jeffery Weeks will be here selling his new book.

I hope to get back out on the water Wednesday and check out the damage from this last rainstorm and wind. I will keep you posted on the conditions. See ya on the water!

"Trout Action" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/02/12
 

Trout are still hanging around...Here is nice photo of one caught in just a few minutes of running the boat. Redfish need to be targeted around the lower tides. Water temperature is near 60 degrees and a few flounder should start to wake up. Full moon is next week, Thursday the 8th. I would expect great fishing action on March 7th. Good Luck! See ya on the water!
