"Bottom Fishing /Spearing" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/20/12
 

Below are a couple of nice bottom fish taken today.  The grouper is Nesbit Noble's along with his son.  The hog snapper was taken by Jeff Martini and will surely be on the menu at The Midtown Bistro in North Myrtle Beach.  Also pictured below with the boat load of fish are Alex Mercer and Austin who, along with their dad Brian fished with Nesbit Nobel.

This crew was 40 miles out.  They limited on big bass, scamp, gag, cobia, mahi and trigger fish.  They also had their share of big sharks and jacks.

Thanks for the pics and info.

"Jaws" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/20/12
 

The news has been packed with reports about the recent shark bites at Myrtle Beach this week.  Never fear, Capt. Quint, aka Captain Chris Dew is doing his part to make the waters safe.  Captain Dew told me he had caught and released a half dozen or so sharks like the one in this picture this week.

Yes, I said released, after a stern warning!

"Two Cute Fishergirls!" | Get Busy | 06/20/12
 

Our good friend Stephen Hunter dropped by the OIFC and we were happy to give him the latest info on the Spanish. Stephen said we made his two girls extremely happy (Rylee 6 and Addison 4). They caught most of the spanish near the OIB pier and some near Shallotte Sea buoy. The hot lure was a  O/O green spoon.  The young ladies also managed to catch a small king near the buoy as well. Stephen said they had a good week with the Spanish, catching 15-20 a day.  They also caught some Bonita as well.

Comments like this from Stephen optimizes our mission statement.  "Once again I can’t express how much you guys at the Fishing center do to make fishing fun for the kids and their families and that’s what it’s all about. Hope to see you soon". Our pleasure Stephen!  That puts a smile on our face!

Well when Allen and Steve roll into town you can be sure something going to be caught. A few live shrimp and a little time and watch it come together. We had some fish over the slot 27+ and a few under size -17. Throw in a couple of trout on the float. Fun times.

Jolly Mon - Fishing Report                                                                         Capt. Brant McMullan











OK- here is the deal.  The King Mackerel fishing has been very slow.  Last week there were a few glimmers of hope as some nice Kings were caught in the 90-100 foot depth range, but the rough seas last weekend kept anyone from following up to see if the fish were still there.  I was out yesterday  and did some "scouting" to see what the ocean looked like.  The water inside of 50 feet and outside of 90 feet looked very good.  The 50-90 depth honestly looked terrible.  The water was very "milky" green and there was scattered weed everywhere.  This 50-90 foot range is typically where the tournament is fished (Jungle, Shark Hole, 90/90....), but unless things change this week, I don't see it.  Inshore of 50 feet the water is clear green, there are Glass minnows with Spanish and Blues everywhere and the Pogys have been plentiful.  It honestly looks like the bite should happen at Yaupon; hopefully the fish will get the memo.  Offshore in 100+ feet, the water is blue and clear.  Kings are scattered in this range and feeding on Snappers and other bottom fish.  The big issue in this range is all the "auxillary" species:  Jacks, Mahi, Cobia...... they are out there and they are biting, particularly the Jacks.  It can be almost impossible to fish live bait with Jacks around.  As such, think on using more dead bait if fishing offshore.  Cigar Minnows and Ribbonfish will often be left alone by Jacks but enticing to Kings.  It is a good offshore strategy.  And that's all I have on the state of the King Mackerel fishing.  It isn't like it "used to be", but what is?  Mother Nature may offer us a break this weekend and as such, conditions may be suitable to try out spots you would not normally fish for this tournament.  Broaden your horizons and think outside the box.  Good luck- Capt. Brant.

*** UPDATE***  Things are continuing to evolve.  Yesterday reports were dirty water due South of Ocean Isle but much clearer up towards the Horseshoe.  Mahi and Sailfish there, but no King reports (YET).  Christinas Ledge and 65' hole area water cleared up and lots of BIG Spanish Mackerel eating live baits.  Weed was bad, so tough to fish.  These are encouraging reports.  There is a rumor of Kings at Yaupon reef, but I have not confirmed it, so might just be wishful thinking.  It should be true; conditions are perfect!

"Jolly Mon update report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/20/12
 

Went out along beach yesterday to look around. Water is absolutely perfect along the beach ; King green and clear. Water is full of acres of spanish, concentrated enough to gotcha plug them. Lots of glass minnows, Pogies are scattered, yesterday thick at Tubbs Inlet and down to Little River. Our boats that fished offshore reported same conditions in 60-85 feet water, lots of scattered weeds, but said water color looking better. On the water today so will update this evening. Heard there was a good fish caught at Yaupon and a good bite out toward the Tower ledges. Maybe the kings are getting the message and are starting to appear just in time. They got 4 more days to get here in mass!

"Joe, Couldn't Handle It! " | Tiberias - 22' | 06/19/12
 

Mike Sala and his two sons, Joe and Evan joined me this morning for a half day backwater adventure. The weather was way too pretty to be in the skinny water, so we headed off the beach. The radio was speaking spanish, so we started trolling just outside the inlet and picked up 8 spanish very quickly. Spanish mackerel was not really what myself and crew were after this morning. We were looking to do some bottom fishing for flatfish at one of the nearshore AR's and structures. We got to our first bottom fishing area and loaded everyone up with a lively minnow. First fish was on the way to the boat in a matter of seconds. A nice 18" flounder! Thatta eat! We kept steady action with toadfish, bluefish, gray trout. black bass, and sharks. Best story of the day? Joe hooks up and the fish gets in the structure. I am not sure what exactly happened, but Joe lost the handle to my reel. He looks at me and says their was a fish on the line. I simply said then, reel, reel, reel....Ha Ha Ha! He figured out quickly that I meant hand line that sucker in! Joe did an awesome job in hand lining and landing a 18" flounder. He handled it well, but it would have been easier with a handle! LOL! We also caught a small shark that bit our 1oz. sinker. Thats right! No hook, he bit the sinker and would not let go. That was a first for me. We had a great time on the water this morning. Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya on the water!

"Jolly Mon report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/19/12
 

Finally the weather has stabalized allowing the sea condtions to improve from weeks of unstable weather. It's been flat this week, and the forecast is a continuation of the same, allowing conditions to continue to improve. Here's whats happening on the ocean.

The beach water has cleared and is a beautiful "King green". The beach water is full of blues/spanish/glass minnows, and pogies are scattered up and down the beach. As you move offshore, the water in the 60-80 foot depth has lots of scattered weeds, and is dirty. Apparently a current rip has set up in this depth and has been there for the last couple days. Beyond 80 feet, the water clears up and the weed is less of a issue.

So what does all this mean? 1st, with the weather stabalizing, the hope is the Kings get back to doing what they are supposed to be doing this time of year and return to where they are supposed to be. As of right now, the best looking water on the ocean is on the beach, the best concentration of bait is on the beach, so what does that tell you? The only thing missing is for the Kings to read this and appear at the historical beach hot spots like Yaupon/Myrtle Beach Rocks/90-90. Or will the current rip stuck in the 60-80 foot range move on, and open up the gates for the Kings to return to their normal 65 foot water hot spots like the Jungle/Shark Hole/Horseshoe. As always, it a crap shoot, but you can bet someone will catch the winner and take home a bunch of money. Stay tuned as we will report what we see/find this week. We're on the water tomorrow so should have a good report tomorrow. Come join us at the Jolly Mon.

"Near/in shore grand slam?" | Get Busy | 06/18/12
 

Take a guy from  Iowa and a couple of Kansas boys and lets go fishing. Coles first salt water fish was a 5.1 lb citation flounder,  I know talk about a lucky drop. The first couple of hours the bite was steady then the east wind kicked in. we bounced from wreck to wreck. Nothing!! The tide was low and I made the move back to the ICW and went to work on some nice redfish to complete the slam.

"Size Doesn't Matter" | Get Busy | 06/18/12
 

Size doesn't matter when you catch your first salt water fish like young Tyler Clemmons.  Tyler was fishing with his dad Timmy (a part of Team OIFC/Do Work), Captain Jeff Beck and Jr. Angler Camdyn Beck.  The crew caught drum around the Sunset Beach Bridge.  They ended the day playing in Tubbs Inlet.  That makes for a fun kid's day.

"Over the Slot" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/18/12
 

The Frambes group joined me for a half day backwater adventure this afternoon. We spent the first few minutes of the trip catching some nice live shrimp. We just about had enough for a meal for ourselves, but the plan was to turn them into something bigger. We worked the Sunset area...we watched Capt. Jeff's group pull in a nice black drum, but we couldn't get a bite. We made a move into Tubbs and still could not get a bite. We headed back towards Ocean Isle hitting docks and little grass flat edges. One particular grass edge finally started producing some bites...Croaker, pinfish, and ocean perch...then Ted's cork takes off like a torpedo...Oh yeah! That's what we are looking for...Ted does an awesome job angling as we were in shallow water and in a gauntlet of oyster shells! Our best fish of the day was over the slot at 27 3/4 inches. We had two more reds that were short of the slot. Looking at the positive...we didn't kill another redfish today, so more to catch next time! See ya on the water!
