"Where are the fish?" | Tiberias - 22' | 02/04/12
 

This is a question I often get while working here at the store. I sent a youngman named Larry Spainhour in the direction that I had spotted several redfish earlier this week. I told him that I knew the fish were there, but getting them to bite was another story. I shared a few tips with Mr. Spainhour that might encourage them to bite, but you never know. Being quiet, using light gear and working a bait slowly is a great recipe for success this time of year. Mr. Spainhour sent me a text messege at 11am that clearly showed that the fish were cooperating today! Thank you Mr. Spainhour for reporting back to us! I believe Mr. Spainhour caught 6 red drum and 1 black drum in just a few hours. All fish were released to be reckoned with on another day! An absolute true sportsman! See ya on the water!

"Green Moon Strikes Again!" | Tiberias - 22' | 02/01/12
 

Headed out Wednesday morning as the winds were slight and right for searching the flats for fish. I struggled to get over a few sandbars as tide was extremely low. About the time I was ready to throw in the towel, I noticed movement to my left. Several reds were moving along an oyster bar about 30 feet away. I made a cast about 10 feet ahead hoping to intercept. Bam! A 23" red slammed it in full stride and the fight was on! Absolutely awesome to see it all unfold in 2 feet of water. The rest of the group scattered and headed to an unknown location. I moved on,  spotting a small group of five reds, but they were not interested. I moved a little further and a couple of 10 inch flounder slipped out of the mud. A few more yards and a few nice size trout spooked to my right. The flat was alive! Unfortunately, I could not get anymore fish to bite, but it was great to see them. See ya on the water!

"Going Big Time" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/30/12
 

www.thestreet.com which I think is a pretty big deal ??  Did an interview on couples working together and chose Amy and I for part of their report.  Here is the link -- pretty small, but still pretty neat to be considered in this big world.

"Sunset Beach Boat Ramp" | Get Busy | 01/29/12
 

I took some pictures of the construction site of the new boat ramp.  I looks like it is going to be a single ramp facility located at the  exact place where the old swing bridge was located.  I don't know anymore than the pictures show.

"Clear water making it Tough?" | Tiberias - 22' | 01/28/12
 

I have recieved several questions concerning the redfish bite around our area right now. The clear water has made getting close to the fish and getting them to bite difficult at times. Up and down weather patterns, water temperatures, and porpoises have kept large schools of redfish on the move. I have shared additional information about this subject on our How to's page. See ya on the water!

"Lets go Wahoo and Tuna Fishing" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/26/12
 

Weather looks good on Saturday.  I know its late notice but I wanted to make sure we got the Carolina Cat back from getting its brand new Yamaha F300's installed before I tried to put anything together.  The latest satellite shot shows perfect Wahoo/Blackfin water out on the break.  Lets break in the new motors and put some fish in the boat.  Plan is to head out early Saturday morning to the Steeples where several BIG Wahoos and Blackfins were caught earlier this week.  Will most likely mix it up with some trolling for Wahoo's and then some Vertical Jigging for the tunas if we mark them like I think we will. I am looking for 4 folks to go with me on this winter adventure.  Cost is $395 per person.  Give me a call at 910-620-9919 to book your spot. If your boat is put up for the winter and you are wanting some offshore therapy, this is your trip.  Lets go gettem...

"Shhhh...the fish are biting!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 01/25/12
 

It is that time of year! The water is extremely clear in our area and you can see the fish. The fish can also see you and hear you. They may tolerate seeing you and still bite. They may tolerate hearing you at a distance and still bite. Let them hear you and see you, game over! I spooked a large school of fish a couple of weeks ago and they would not bite that day. I went to check out the area this past week and worked my way in very slowly. I started making long cast up current from where I first spotted fish a week ago, letting the bait tumble back to them. I could feel my line going through the school, then one slammed it! Game on! I have been fortunate to catch several nice reds the last couple of days. I love it when a game plan comes together! Enjoy the pictures and video...See ya on the water!

"One Foggy..." | Tiberias - 22' | 01/24/12
 

Rudolph want you guide my boat today...Yesterday was was so foggy at times I could only see about 50yds. Oh well! I sure could hear my drag screaming. The redfish were a little bit easier to sneak up on with the gloomy conditions. Plus, with the approaching front their appetite was back in full swing. I managed to land 14 reds, most of them right in the middle of the slot around 23 inches. I also had 5 trout and one flounder to top the day off with this years first Carolina Slam. I can't stand it and will be back after them on Wednesday. Give me a call if you want to go! See ya on the water!
