"Ocean Conditions" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/23/12
 

At 7:44 am the Carolina Cat reported "steep conditions".  He was going to the Stream but changed plans.  In shore there is NO wind, which has caused the no-see-ums to chew on people.

The World Cat reported thick bait at Tubbs Inlet.

"Old Blue" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/22/12
 

Leth and Ethan joined me for another day of fishing. We started out about 8am this morning working the last bit of incoming tide. We took a bass fishing approach first thing this morning working the edges of the grass. We had a few bluefish cut us off and landed some nice flounder. We changed gears to live bait looking for the redfish. We caught a couple more flounder and then old blue showed up. Leth hooked up for just a few seconds. Ethan hooks up for a few seconds. I hook up and again line was cut before passing the rod. I made some adjustments to leader materails and was ready for some action. Ethan hooks up hard! Fish on! Ethan lands a solid 8 or 9 pound bluefish despite having fluorocarbon leader. Leth hooks up hard on my homemade wire leader. My wire must not have been long enough, after a short tug of war the leader was cut just about the wire. We hung around for a few more minutes hoping that either the blues would give us another chance or a redfish would show up. The bite just shut down there....we made a move. We got into the toadfish...small flounder....Leth hooks up hard...good fight...hooks pulled! Ethan's rod doubles over...game on! Ethan does an awesome job angling a solid 28" red to the boat. Quick picture and release. We ended the day with Leth landing a nice red of her own. Thank you guys for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"Jolly Mon AR460 feeding station" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/21/12
 

Last week I reported the Jolly Mon AR460 feeding station mysteriously sunk following the deposit we made of 300lbs+ of fish carcasses plus 2 bricks. I went on a rescue mission today and can report the feeding station has mysteriously re-surfaced. It is still loaded with fish carcasses, putting out a great slick. Apparently something toothy took a bite out of it, and now seabass are swimming in and out of the hole. I trolled around it for a few laps and caught several bluefish. We will replenish as soon as our charter boats do trips this week. I am going to go ahead and forecast the Jolly Mon King Tournament will be won at Jolly Mon Reef!

"Scouting Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/21/12
 

Captain Jeff, 1st Mate Camdyn and I took the "Do Work" Contender on a scouting/spanish/blue fish run yesterday.  We spotted birds working around the Shallotte Inlet, the Holden Beach Bridge and the "high hill".  While scouting we pulled a couple of 00 Clarke Spoons and Camdyn boated several blue fish. 

 The ocean got bumpy and Camdyn needed a nap in the Ocean Tamer Bean Bag so we returned to the OIFC.  On the trip back in we saw two guys killing the spanish site casting.  Now that's fun!

Bottom line, the bait is here and there have been some kings caught at the Youpon Reef.  So the Jolly Mon ought to be right on time.  Camdyn and Caroline are honing their fishing skills so we need some Jr. Anglers to try to knock them down a notch.

"Change of the tide." | Get Busy | 05/19/12
 

There is nothing like knowing that when the tide changes the fish are going to turn on. I set up my afternoon trip to fish the first part of the rising tide. Hoping that even with the 20+ knot winds and 50 degree weather that it was going to go off. First stop within a 3 wood of the OIFC docks we lit them up with a handfull of redfish. We picked up and moved down the ICW only to bust out more redfish,black drum and a MONSTER sheephead. We over extended our welcome there and moved over to Tubbs Inlet only to find a good flounder bite. We did stick our nose in the Shallotte River long enough to see that the water is so dark I could'nt see the bait in the livewell.

"Inshore Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/19/12
 

The conditions have been less than favorable for fair weather fishermen. My crew yesterday was up for the challenge regardless the conditions. The wind and current was so strong at times, using the trolling motor in combination with my anchor would not hold our position. We managed to land a few short flounder, but had quite a few bites. The conditions were making it tough to feel the bite. I decided to change gears and see if the redfish would cooperate. We worked the docks along the Northern side of the waterway because they were a little more protected from the North East wind. The bite started off slow...but then the teacher showed up and school was in session. We worked on several redfish in the lower slot around 18 to 22 inches. My crew was all about catch and release, so those fish are there for our future enjoyment! Ethan, 15 years old, landed our best fish of the day. A nice 26 inch redfish that was weighed in, picture taken, and released at dockside. I will be fishing with  Ethan and Leth again on Tuesday. I hope the fishing stays the same and the weather gives us a break. Pictured below is Ethan, Leth, and Capt. Casey Reeves with our best redfish of the day weighing in at 6.4 pounds. Thank you guys for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"Back to OIB" | Get Busy | 05/18/12
 

Well everyone knows how hard the Captains at the fishing center try to get the fishermen that fish with us on fish. So when the fish or weather don't come together and we can't make it happen we take it to heart. I took the week off to travel down to Floridas west coast to tarpon fish. Well 3 days of fishing in pouring rain and breezey conditions made for tough conditions for Capt. Josh and Capt. Matt. Hard as we tried it just did'nt happen. Floridas clear water is a double edged sword. I hate when you can see the fish but can't make them  bite.So 15 hours on the water and not a single bite but to worry I will be back.

"Jolly Mon Reef feeding station update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/16/12
 

The good news is Rube and Brant restocked the Jolly Mon Reef[AR460] feeding station today with approx 300lbs of dolphin/wahoo carcasas. The bad news is it was so full it sunk. Damn, back to the drawing board. Fortunately a thunderstorm came up preventing a rescue attempt, so will make another shot tomorrow. We are committed to this project, but as we said from the beginning, this is experimentation, so will keep working until we come up with a workable system.
