Happening now! Too much fun to miss. And if you aspire to be a tournament competitor there is no better time to practice with quality fish. Released these and kept the smallers. Fishing today with Bob and Peg Haney and Jim Boria of Ohio and WV. Capt Brant

"Fish Report" | OIFC | 11/02/17
 

If you aren't here fishing now, then you are missing out.  It gets no better than we are experiencing.  The weather has been great all week and is forecast to continue through the weekend.  

The Stream is red hot with big Wahoo.  The Winyah Scarp area has been the hot area.

The King Mackerel fishing is red hot for quality size fish in the Cape Fear Ship Channel.

The Grouper and Red Snapper fishing is very strong in the 60-85' depth range.  And Red Snapper season is open!

You can't be a fan of fishing in this area and not be here now!  As a wise man once said to me, "Some will make excuses to go fishing and some will make excuses not to go fishing.  Which one will you be?"

We have open charter boats as well for the weekend if you need a ride.  Call 910-575-3474

** These are all pictures from the last 2 days **

"Inshore Report " | OIFC | 10/30/17
 

Joey Dail sent me this report:

My son-in-law Richard, his Dad/ Jack Blankenhorn (both form Raleigh) Russ Gobble from Thomasville were with me on Nauti Girl Saturday for a day of Fall fishing. We started a little late not getting on the water until 10:30 or so. We fished all the usual spots and ended the day at the jetties to see if we could pick up some Bull Drum. In about an hour, had our limit with four 24 inch slots, a trout and a blue. Only sad thing is we listened to our Wolfpack get clobbered! Great day with family and friends!

"Can't Beat a Fall Grouper Bite " | Catch All | 10/26/17
 

Fall fishing has been great this year. From spanish mackerel, big king mackerel and sharks near shore to grouper and wahoo action offshore, the OIFC’s Capt.’s and crew have been taking advantage of it all while its here. But unfortunately, this incredible fall bite will eventually taper off as the water temperatures begin to drop and winter arrives. However, right now the bite is still strong and there is plenty of fall left to go get out on the water.

Pictured below, longtime customers Bill and John Means joined me aboard the OIFC Catch All last week to take advantage of the great fishing and boy did we find the groupers. Fishing in only 65 feet, it took quite a bit of skill to anticipate the bite and prevent the gags from running into the rocks yet Bill and John were flawless. Great job guys – see you next year!

The fishing is hot for now, get in on the action before its too late. Call 910-575 3474 to reserve your trip today.

"Letter From SCDNR Tag Program" | Tiberias - 22' | 10/18/17
 

Congratulations Angie Sutton! Catching a bull redfish over 40 inches is a feat in itself. Catching one that has been tagged is like hitting the lottery. Check out the info in the letter below that SCDNR sent Angie about her fish. See ya on the water!

"Bucket List" | Tiberias - 22' | 10/18/17
 

Congratulations to local angler Joe Zurad for checking another species off his bucket list. False Albacore on the fly! False Albarcore have been thick in the 35 feet area which is about 2 miles offshore. Catching them can be tricky, I can't imagine how tough it is on the fly. Awesome fight I am sure! See ya on the water.

"OIFC Updates" | OIFC | 10/09/17
 

Capt. Brad reports great King Mac action again today -- this time in the Cape Fear Ship Channel.  He guided Greg and Charles York from High Point, NC on the 6hr King Mackerel fishing charter.

The Fall Brawl is this weekend and all indications are pointing at an epic weekend.  Make the plans.  Fish the Fall Brawl.  Visit www.OIFC.com/FBKC for event details and entry

THE OIFC HAS LIVE SHRIMP BACK IN STOCK!  We are trying to keep up with demand as law does not allow for shrimping on the weekend.  We are stocked up now and will try to restock on Friday for the weekend.  Shrimp are $8/dz and get while supplies last at the OIFC.
