The title is "Shark Hunter". Those of us who fish know our waters has it's fair share, plus, of sharks. Shark Week on The Discovery Channel is upon us but there's no reason to become a couch potato and just watch it on TV. You can charter with the OIFC and be a part of the Shark Week action like these folks from mid-west N. Carolina did.
Will you ever go back in the water again?!!! Come shark fishing with us then make your decision.
***The gaff in the pics was used solely to remove the hooks. There are a select few species of shark that are eatable. So far our customers have decided to enjoy the fight and release their sharks to fight another battle.
Captain Jeff put the smack down on the flounder today at an artificial reef just off shore using live shrimp. The bite was so hot that Capt. Jacob and his charter got in on the action.
Accompanying Capt. Jeff were Dereck Register, Ted Register, Luke Logan and Ken Haney. It would appear the near shore flounder bite is heating up!
The pics and dock report are by OIFC Cub Dock Reporter Katy Bartholomew.
A couple of days ago, Captain Jeff Williamson charter fished with Spencer Brown, Scott Browder, and Carl Horn of Charlotte, N.C. This was the 1st time the guys had fished with J. Dogg. They caught 3 keeper red drum, several throw back flounder as well as a plethora of other ichthyoid creatures.
The picture and info is by OIFC cub reporter and birthday girl Katelyn Kinser. The poor quality is not fault of the cub reporter. The gaff cam spent too much time underwater and fogged up. My apologies to the guys.
We have room for 2 more giant tuna hunters on the Prince Edward Island, Canada giant tuna trip. The dates are September 10-13. The cost is $1000 and includes 2 days fishing, accommodations, and ground transportation. This will be a great late summer escape to cool weather and hopefully lots of giant bluefin tuna. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to get on board.
PEI 2011 Team Thus Far:
James "Big Chief" Hammonds
Hooked up with a shark off ocean crest that we had to run down. Check in later for pictures when we land it.??
Team Wishful Thinking, comprised of Frank, Brice and Caroline Byrum offered these pictures from their fishing trip this week. The 2 spanish and king are from the 90's on Sunday and the mahi is from the 70 Ft. Hole on Monday. This was the team's first mahi.
Thank ya'll for the report and great pictures.
Below is a picture of Tim Gallimore's 4.5 lb. black drum he caught while fishing the Shallotte River with Thomas Willis. They were using live shrimp on a "channelside" rig.
Not to sound anymore ignorant than I am, I'll have to find out exactly what a channelside rig is before I can answer any questions.
Thanks for the info. Tim, and let me know what a channelside rig is!
Father and son combo Butch Myers and Jeremy Myers of Black Mountain, N.C. recently purchased and upgraded a nice Grady White and formed a new father-son team to be reckoned. A few days ago they were "sort of at the Horseshoe" when Jeremy hooked up and landed his 1st mahi. Butch said the seas became sporty on the way back in but it looks like the Grady got them home ship shape.
Congratulations on your 1st mahi. The mahi was hooked, and now I expect that ya'll are too Thanks for the report and for being loyal OIFC customers!.
****Update!! Butch just sent me a picture of his 1st mahi. They've definately got a boat who knows how to mahi fish!
Man!!!! On the heels of many fishermen struggling during this weekend's Got Em On King Classic, Amanda Almond and Scott Lomas bring 2 citation kings to be weighed and photographed at the OIFC Monday the 11th. Of all places to pull a 35.7 lb king Amanda caught hers at the 390's. How many angler hours were spent there Sunday? Scott Lomas caught his 34 lb king in 65 ft of water. To finish it off they also weighed in a 5.7 lb spanish.
All the tournament talk in this report was in good spirit. Congratulation from all of the king fishermen and the OIFC and thanks for bringing you fish by our humble establishment.
Thanks to Miss Olivia of the OIFC Store Staff for the report and pics.
