"wahoo biting" | Real-Time Update | 08/19/11
 

Charlie tassel and James Freeman of Monroe,NC caught three 30-35 pound wahoo at the blackjack yesterday. Charlie reported that the two man crew was kep t very busy all day from constant bites; reporting a dozen or more solid bites. This is great news and good reason to dust off the stream trolling rigs and gear- fall wahoo season can be world class. Capt. Brant McMullan

"Kristen's 2 1/2 Flounder" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/18/11
 

Kristen Love out fished everyone last weekend with her 2 and 1/2 flounder.  She caught a 17.5" and a 20" Sunday at the Caudle Reef and the 1/2 flounder was caught at the Youpon Reef on Friday.  Jamie Blue estimated the half of the flounder that made it to the boat would have been 5 or 6lbs before some creature made it his lunch.

"WAHOO!!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/18/11
 

What a wahoo!!!  Yesterday Steve Ritenhour took Joel Martin and his two sons, John, age 7 and Joseph, age 8 for their 1st off shore trip aboard Steve's 26 ft. Triton "Seaclusion".  They caught the whaoo in the picture as well as a mahi 26 miles out in 80 ft. of clear water which was full of bait..  They caught the wahoo in the prop wash on a king rig with a cigar minnow and the fight was on!

"Scattered Inshore Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 08/18/11
 

I have only gotten out twice this week with the McRae group on Monday morning and the Miniuitti group this morning. Monday we headed straight for the nearshore reefs looking for flounder. We could not get baits to the bottom before the black sea bass were inhaling it! We drifted, moved, and hit many different spots. Finally, Stuart drilled a nice 21" flounder and his buddy Richard followed it up with a nice 18" flounder. That was it for our flounder bite. We did fight a 4 foot shark all the way to the boat for a quick release at boatside. It was time for plan B...Spanish are scattered all along the beach front right now. It did not take long for us to catch a few to end the day with some good eating.

Today with Michelle, Wes, and Jack we made a few stops before heading out the inlet. Jack was first to hook up with a nice red! Jack fought him all the way to the boat before the fish released itself just out of reach of my net. Disappointing...but will Jack get another chance to redeem himself? Wes was up next, rod bent over and he went to work. Meanwhile, Jack's rod bent over and another fish was screaming off drag. I love it! I netted Wes's fish first and then scooped up Jack's redfish. Way to stay with it Jack! Both boys enjoyed it greatly, but were eager to see the ocean and catch a few spanish. We got on the spanish just past the sea bouy. Wes and Jack wanted to catch a shark, so we went to bottom fishing. The bottom was dead today! We did see a barracuda eat a bluefish and a large, very large hammerhead. Winds look great again for tomorrow, hope the fish got the memo. See ya on the water!

"The Hardee Boyz" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/17/11
 

Captain Corey Bellamy  (Beck's Seafood in Calabash) and Kurt Hardee (Ellas's Seafood in Calabash) took Luke and Calab Hardee, Kurt's boys, and Jacob Frelich, (Corey's nephew, Kurt's sister's son..it's a Brunswick County, N.C. thang )sea bass fishing today on what was supposed to be beautiful calm seas.  The east wind changed all that though.

They dropped lines with Charlie Browns, aka Lizard fish as bait.  The current was terrible and they ended up catching mahi instead...and a sea bass.  Luke Hardee was the angler on the mahi. The crew was fishing 65 ft deep near the Jungle.

P.S. Luke. That mahi will never make it in the swimming pool unless you add some Pogey Saver.

Thanks Corey for sharing the story and congratulations to the guys on a great trip!

"Post cold front fishing" | Get Busy | 08/15/11
 

If you were lucky enough to be on the water this morning,how nice was that? The sun came up to calm seas, 64 degrees and NO wind. The nearshore bite was slow to start but keeping focused and placing baits in produtive areas paid off for Greg, Ethan and Jake Whitman. The same held true For John of Marrieta Ga. nearshore bite just did not happen just a few short flounder. The falling tide at the usual spots paid off with Red and Black  Drum. Still an awesome day in S.E. Brunswick Co.

"Sunday Afternoon Fishing" | Get Busy | 08/14/11
 

The weather called for 50% chance of thunderstorms this afternoon.  The storms held off until after dark.  Too bad for the flounder and drum as Brandon Sauls, Jeff Beck and Clay Morphes hit the flats on Brandon's Bonecruscher.

The crew fished with live shrimp and landed several flounder and drum.  They fished the Sunset Bridge and in behind Ocean Isle on a falling tide  They had several small flounder and numerous keepers.  One of the reds was 26".

The Cape Fear Classic organizers would like to thank their sponsors, The OIFC, Atlantic Marine, Sea Tow,Ocean Isle Marina and most of all, the 15 captains who participated.  Look for an even bigger and better Classic in 2012.

"Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/14/11
 

I know we've been pretty quiet over the past month, particularly on the offshore scene.  The honest reason is there has not been a whole lot to report.  However, that doesn't mean we have not been catching fish and making people happy.  Most of our mid to late Summer charter fishing is 4 and 6 hour, half day trips.  This keeps our range to within 20 miles and cuts down on options.  Many of our trips are for Spanish Mackerel, which have been biting very good all Summer.  Lately they've been in 25-30 feet of water around Glass Minnow and Pogy pods- lots of Blues mixed in as well.  On our 6 hour trips we have been giving the Kings an opportunity to cooperate, but they really haven't been doing much.  However, we have run across a few fish and the occasional Mahi -- here are a couple of pics from last week as proof that there are in fact Kings and Mahi still out there and there is good reason to go fishing. 

I'm really looking forward to this week's cooler weather.  Maybe it will spark the fish to move and get biting.
