"BURRRR!!!!!" | Get Busy | 10/02/11
 

What happened Friday night? The rain rolled thru around 6:00 p.m. and Saturday morning the cold air was on us.`Un sure of what that cold front was going to do the fishing we headed out. I found some flounder up the Shallotte River friday so I thought lets see if they are still there. They where 3 quick fish. Then start hitting the docks and see what happens.

"US Open Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/01/11
 

It felt wierd being on land during the US Open and getting reports from friends on the water.  Team OIFC is normally right in the middle of the action, but this year "stuff" came up and we couldn't make it.  However, apparently the fish don't need us on the water to bite, as I am excited to report some pretty good beach fishing activity.  Was it hot?  No.  But it was good enough that most people fishing the beach caught fish and good enough to be declared a viable fishery.  You also have to remember the tournament was held on Friday and Saturday, the day before and after the cold front.  These were not very good conditions and as such, I beleive once the weather and fish settle into the big Fall weather change, the bite will be on big time.  A 43 pounder won.  It was caught by James Joine and crew aboard the Deep End.  The fish was caught near the Lockwood's Folly sea buoy around 2:30pm on Saturday.  The second place fish was caught by the 2010 Jolly Mon winner, Charles Reese; a 38 pounder that came from the Yaupon Reef area.  3rd came from the River channel and a couple of the other top 10 fish came from Shallotte inlet.  There were fish caught up and down the beach as no particular area seemed to produce more fish than another.  This coming weekend is the Rumble in the Jungle tournament out of Little River- www.littleriverfishingclub.com for info - It looks like the weather and fish may be coming together for a collission course in this event, it could be epic?  I woudl recommend making plans to participate if for nothing more than to get in on the action.  Team OIFC is planning to rejoin the circuit and get back to work for this event.  See you on the water.

"U. S. Open Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/01/11
 

I've received unconfirmed reports of a 43 (?) pound king being brought to the scales.  A  38 pounder caught a Youpon was leading.  I was told that kings were caught at the mouths of Shallotte Inlet, Tubbs and Hog.

Again, not confirmed.

"Open" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/30/11
 

I talked with a couple of trusted local anglers about the U.S. Open. They told me a few kings were caught at the 90's and Youpon Reef.  The size and quantity was nothing to write home about.  But as Rube said, the size of the winning fish isn't important because it's bigger than the 2nd place fish.

Good luck to the fishing teams on Saturday.  Stay safe.

"Just before the cold" | Get Busy | 09/30/11
 

Awesome day on the water today.Rob,Pam and grandson Owen from Ohio in the a.m and Ray and Holden from Cary in the p.m. The fish bit all day with the exception of the extreme high tide. As soon as the water started moving again so did the bite. We found some nice flounder in Tubbs this morning and Shallotte River this afternoon.The redfish still are in love with the BIG live shrimp when you can find them.

"Inshore Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 09/29/11
 

Steve and Jim finally got on the water with me today. We tried to battle the rain on Tuesday, but the electricity was just too much. We rescheduled for today. The current was ripping. wind blowing, and water stirred up from both forces. Again, the conditions pushed us to alternative plans. I really wanted to get out on the beach and nearshore wrecks to find flounder and the big reds. The ocean wasn't going to allow that today. We ended up hitting the docks landing 12 reds, 3 grouper, and monster toadfish! The bite seems to have slowed a bit with the water temperatures rising near 80 degrees again. An approaching cold front should change these conditions and get the fish biting again early next week. Thanks for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"US OPen king update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/29/11
 

Nothing good to report from our charter boats today. Fished at Yaupon and it was rough. No action. SW wind tomorrow will be difficult. Best bets will be to get out to 60 feet and anchor/chum/kite fish or fish along beach on the north side of Frying Pan Shoals where you get land protection from a west/southwest wind. Other option will be down toward Myrtle around Apache Pier as also some land protection there. Most likely the game will be about Saturday fishing as once the front comes thru wind will be hard out of the north, and conditions along our Brunswick County beaches will be flat close to the land. Hopefully the SW wind won't stir the beach water up too bad. If history means anything, they should bite Saturday on the north wind from river channel to Yaupon/Ocean Crest. Good luck to everyone fishing. Plenty of pogies along the beach.

"Offshore Grouper" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/28/11
 

Did some Grouper fishing today -- Caught a few nice Gags in 100 feet of water- inshore of that was SHARK CITY -- couldn't get a bait down!  There was a strong SE current which made fishing difficult as well.  A lot of grass on top made trolling nearly impossible.  It was one of "those" days, but we scratched through it with plenty of good eating Grouper, Snapper and Sea Bass for everyone.

"Us Open king update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/28/11
 

Report from our charter boats:

Capt Brant fished 90 feet; grouper/bee liners/sea bass, top line no Kings.

Capt Chris/Capt Steele fished 90's; nothing but sharks and fished Little river Inlet, only big spanish.

Report from Yaupon there were some Kings caught there today. Our boats are out tomorrow so will provide updated info. Plenty of pogies up and down the beach. My guess is Friday will be a challenge prior to front coming thru as should be west/sw wind[I don't have a clue where the fish will be]. Front comes thru Friday ev ening so Saturday will be fall conditions, hard north wind...AND beach bite SHOULD kick off between river channel and Yaupon/Ocean Crest. Thats about all I can see at this point. Standby.

"US Open king report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/28/11
 

Today is first day our boats have been back on the water this week, so this evening we should have a good read on whats happening where. Short of the facts, history and theory is what we've got right now. History says Kings should/will mysteriously show up in the River Channel as they seem to do every year at the US Open. However, as of last week, nothing to show that is happening. The water temp is still 80 degrees which isn't what we would expect this time of year. The winds this week have been fairly lite, so beach water shouldn't be stirred up too bad. The only "indication" we've seen last few days is over the weekend, spanish were thick at the 90/90 and there was a little bit of a beach bite. The beach has been thick with pogies and glass minnows which should translate into Kings. Nothing definitive to report, but when our boats get in this evening we'll post what we know.

John Winter of the St. James Fishing Club and two friends ventured to the Horseshoe.  They only got to fish a couple of hours because a storm chased them away.  While there the fishermen caught 2 kings, including this 19 lb'r pictured below.

Thanks for the report John

"Dodge them showers" | Get Busy | 09/26/11
 

Will, John and Chris drove down from Raliegh skipped out of work for a couple of days for some inshore fishing and golf. The fishing could have been better. We blew an hour and some change chasing those jettie reds but could not get them to bite. We came back down the ICW and started picking apart the docks.

"Fish report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/26/11
 

OK -- here is the deal.  I know a lot of you have been watching our site waiting to go fishing until the fish started biting.  I don't half blame you, although it does put a lot of pressure on us to find fish all by ourselves- lots of ground to cover.  The biggest thing slowing more fishing has been the lack of Kings; it has been tough fishing for them this Summer.  But, here is the fishing deal right now that will hopefully get you moving and on the water

We have been fishing100 feet to find Kings.  I fished that depth Saturday and had fun with Wahoo and Sailfish, but no Kings.  I was disappoined in my effort, but also encouraged as I found out that there has been a good bite in 50 feet of water at spots such as the 390s....  Also there has been a beach bite going on near the Cherry Grove pier.  Up towards the Cape Fear the bite has been slower with a few fish coming off Yaupon, but the water is pretty dirty up that way and action is slower.  This will change. 

Further offshore, the Gag Grouper bite has started to take off.  Fishing 60-80 feet has been producing limits of Gags in the 10-20 pound range for our recent 8 and 10 hour charters.

There is a ton of bait along the beach as well, so live bait fishing should not be a problem.

That's the report.  The ocean is coming to life and it is time to get on the water.  This coming weekend is the US OPEN King Mackerel Tournament, so come on down and fish the tournament -- stop by the OIFC for all your fishing needs, we have them.

See you here.

UPCOMING TOURNAMENTS

US OPEN- this weekend

Rumble in the Jungle- Little River- Oct 7-8
