"Bananas!!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/12/11
 

Who brings bananas on the boat? Only Konnor would do such a thing. He showed up this morning holding a banana. I asked him to eat the banana before he got on my boat or leave it on the dock. Konnor proceeded to get in the front of the boat and eat his banana. What! I told him that are chances of catching fish today just got very slim. We finally managed to hook our first fish of the day. Konnor is on the rod, guess what? Thats right...the hooks pulled. BANANAS! No worries! It wasn't long before another nice red was on the line and Konnor did a great job at angling. Everyone got a red and we moved onto the flounder. We waded through a few small flounder around the docks in the canals and finally got a few keepers. Mr. Howard pulled a nice 4.9 pounder out from one. Great job! Live mullet worked wonders on the reds and flounder today. See ya on the water!

"Position, Position, Position" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/12/11
 

Bill Creveling submitted this report of a fishing trip he, his father-in-law Hanley Ervin of Strasburg, Va..took out of OIB aboard Bill's 23 ft. Clearwater along with Jeff Young of Charlotte aboard his 23' Grady White a couple of weekends ago.  They usually fish tandem for safety reasons.  They fished 75 ft. of water where Jeff caught the Scamp in the picture while drift fishing.  Hanley caught the mahi in the picture while slow trolling a naked  king rig.  Bill said Hanley has great fishing instincts and they 79 yr. young Mr. Ervin generally out fishes everyone.

The next day, Sunday, was not as quite as nice but they made their was to 90 ft. of water where they found fast currents, choppy white capping water.  Jeff held his boat in perfect position using his motors and landed his second grouper.

Thank you Bill for sharing this report and the pictures.

"Working on the Docks" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/11/11
 

Mr. Yost brought his two boys fishing for a half day. We hit a lot of docks along the intercoastal waterway and drifted the Shallote Inlet. The results were fair. We caught several short flounder to get one keeper out of the deal. The redfish were under the docks hitting live mullet and menhaden. We did manage a couple on live shrimp, but the pinfish are quicker than the reds on most cast. It has been tough, but keep moving and you are bound to hit a few. Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya on the water!

"Pictures From Got Em On Classic" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/11/11
 

Several Team OIFC Boats fished the Got Em On Classic.  Right now I don't have any information on how the Team members finished.   I was told that we the "Team OIFC/Do Work" finished 15th out of 160+ boats with a 16.04 lb fish.

The day started with finding pogies in front of Dunn Sound at Cherry Grove.  The Captain Brant's Pogey Net was a necessity.  Toby Russ threw once and Capt. Jeff threw right behind him and they floated both nets.

Since we were that far down we decided to fish the 90's.  We caught one king, Capt. Chris Dew of the Carolina Cat was doubling up on Kings.  Then the sharks moved in so we headed to Christina's Ledge.  We caught our 2nd king there.  We also caught a sail fish that put on a show.  He broke off before I could get my camera out.

The sharks joined us there so were hauled the mail to the light house rocks.  The only thing we caught was a spinner shark who also put on a show.

Overall hardly anyone caught any big fish and a great number of people didn't catch any.  Here is the link for the official results.

Obviously I work at the OIFC.  But we are grateful that Capt. Brant chose us as one of the teams to represent the OIFC and to fish the It Works.  All of our equipment, from the OIFC Custom Rods, Speedmaster reels, Captain Brant's Custom Pogey to the fuel comes from the OIFC.  It is the same stuff used on our charters.  I highly recommend getting your supplies from the OIFC.  It is charter and tournament proven!  This commercial message was brought to you by Capt. Rickey.

"Knocking on the Docks" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/10/11
 

Headed out again this morning working the canal docks and several along the waterway. Caught a few small ones inside the canals, but found a few keepers in the waterway. One dock produced a rather nice one. Hope to repeat this for my trip tomorrow. Capt. J-Dogg continues to slay the reds and black drum. Stay tuned for his pictures as he had some nice ones. We both continue to work on the fish. Give us a call. 575-FISH! See ya on the water!

"A to Z Poorman's Dinner" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/09/11
 

My wife left me again...she took all the credit cards, money, and the kid...ahh, she just went to a wedding out of town...I think she will be back?...LOL... Either way I was left to fend for myself this afternoon. With no money I had to do it the old fashion way. I grabbed my fishing pole and a few deep creek baits. Hopped on the boat and dropped the trolling motor. My third cast produced a nice 17 inch fish, a few more cast produced another keeper. I attracted an audience quickly as I never left the canal and folks quickly caught on to what I was doing. Talked to a few folks and shared some information. Another angler caught one on a mepps spinner bait. It was that magical thirty minutes before dark bite. Glad to see the rain...it has brought life back to the surface as bait was everywhere this afternoon. I look forward to the next few days and the full moon is approaching at the end of the week. Should see lots of fish caught and some good ones in the mix. Good Luck! See ya on the water!

"Ready for my best catch" | Get Busy | 07/08/11
 

My wife, Stephanie, and I have officially begun the labor inducement process.  We are all set up in the hospital and now it's hurry up and wait.  There's a little girl coming at some point but when is the question.  We've been told between 24 and 72 hours however neither of us are very patient so we're hoping the little one is the same way.  Hopefully my next report will include a picture of my latest and best catch.  Stand by.

Jeff Furr and his son George Coker had a great day on the backwater behind OIB.  They caught several flounder on Gulp shrimp..  He said they caught them in the corners of the mouth.  Jeff....comedy is dangerous work and should be left to the professionals.  In all seriousness. We're happy you took you son fishing and doubly as happy ya'll had a good day.

"Jack's 1st Flounder" | Get Busy | 07/08/11
 

Captain Mike Kennerly had an experience this weekend that only us Grandaddy's can appreciate.  He was with his 8 yr. old grandson Jack when he caught his 1st flounder.  Jack was extremely pleased as he said of his 17" fish 'Paw Paw, I caught a HUGE flounder".  When asked where he caught him he replied "in the jaw".  I think ole Paw Paw has been schooling the young man.

Moms, Dads, Grandparents..the experience of being with you child and their child when they catch their 1st fish is an unexplainable emotion.  I know, I was with my son when he caught his 1st fish and my son, his wife and I were with their daughter when she caught her 1st fish.  Experience that feeling.  Take your child and/or grandchild fishing.

"Hot Water 89.8 Degrees!" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/08/11
 

Fished a 4 hour trip with Allen and Jim yesterday morning. We caught a handfull of flounder with only one making the mark. We also landed a nice red under a dock. We were using live shirmp and mullet. The shrimp have been abundant at low tide in the feeder creeks. Be prepared to get shallow and even walk in the mud if you want to get to the shrimp. The mullet minnows are thick along with the pogies in all sizes. You have just got to be patient in locating the right size school. The canals seem to be holding the best size bait right now. Mullet at low tide and pogies near high tide.

Fished in the afternoon with Mr. Thomason and his boys. The water was so hot we struggled to keep our bait alive. We caught some perfect size pogies and mullet. We also had shrimp. We hit several docks and holes...We fished from the Sunset area all the way up to the Shallote River. Lots of running and gunning...Everyone landed a flounder, but no keepers. We also landed a big croaker. I really felt we were in the right spot for the black drum since the croaker were there. Just wasn't going to happen. Glad to see the rain this morning. We needed it! Hopefully it will cool the water down a bit and turn the fish on! See ya on the water!

Pogys moving back off shallotte inlet. Came in from offshore today and were in 35 feet of water, several pods. Interesting to see that they must have headed offshore during ruff weather but now coming in when calmer. I always wondered where they went. Maybe they will move onto beach tomorrow?

"The Beat Continues" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/07/11
 

Captain Brant along with Captain Chris Eckert returned to the OIFC after a bumpy but successful charter.  He and his crew fished in about 80 feet of water using live cigar minnows they jigged up.  As can be seen in the picture they caught a king, a couple of mahi and some spanish.

Captain Brant said that due to some of our recent weather conditions the pogies had move up the Cape Fear River.

"Father and Son" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/06/11
 

What a day to remember!!  A father and son from Wyoming having a very exciting off shore  charter.  These are the memories Colter and Mark Sheridan made as they fished a charter with Captain Chris "O.C.) Dew and Captain Zach Faulkner.

The crew skipped looking for live bait and opted for Bait Master, OIFC frozen cigar minnows.  They made way through bumpy seas to an area 65 ft. deep where they put out lines and dropped a downrigger ball.  They got a king hit a short time later.

Then they decided to pull in baits and headed for 80 ft. water.  Using the same method they caught more kings.  They also did a little sea bass fishing to round out the menu. 

The group headed back to the oifc after very enjoyable day on a charter charter.
