"Hook A Hoo Rodeo update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/04/11
 

The Hook A Hoo Wahoo tournament starts today.  It was scheduled for one week, fishing 1 out of 9 possible days.  BUT, the weather report is sketchy next week so it has been extended to 2 weeks.  You can enter any time during that period -- pretty cool format.

"In The River" | Get Busy | 11/04/11
 

If you hear a local talk about the river, or REAL locals will call it the reever, they are making reference to the Intracoastal Waterway.  Tommy Helms and some folks fishing with him caught these red drum in the river and at the Jetties.   He said the ICW and the Little River Jetties are loaded with reds.

"Pre Fall Brawl Flounder" | Get Busy | 11/04/11
 

Captain Tommy Helms is one of the hottest flounder fishermen in our area.  He caught these flatties just prior to the Fall Brawl and thought he'd let all that settle down before sending pictures to the OIFC.

Tommy's daughter just got married and she and her husband, Dan stopped by on the way home from their honeymoon for a little golf and fishing.  Flounder fishing with Mr. Helms ought to be called catching instead of fishing.

Congratulations Dan on your marriage and on the nice flounder.  You've got a great mother and daddy in law. Thanks for the pics. Tommy.

"Catch and Share" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/03/11
 

It's amazing what one can run across while sitting in a hospital room.  In this case I found a story by the Fisherman's Voice about Congressman Walter B. Jones of N.C. 3rd District and Rep. Mike McIntyre of N.C. requesting  the Appropriations and Authorizing Committee not to fund the Catch and Share Program.  Their request is based on the financial hardships the program would cause fishermen during this already struggling economy.  The letter was signed by 19 congressmen of the eastern seaboard states.  Click on this link for the news article from Walter B Jones. 

When the time comes, remember those elected officials who support the fishing industry.

"Rodeo Update" | Get Busy | 11/03/11
 

Brandon Sauls has improved his lead in the Trout Division by weighing a 3.9 lb trout on 11-2.  Neil Loman is in 1st place in the King Division with a 23.6 lb king he weighed in on 10-7.

The Rodeo goes on until December 31st.  On the inshore scene the trout bite is heating up, so is the red drum action and the flounder are still hitting.  I'll have a couple of pictures of Captain Tommy Helms' flat fish Thursday.

"Fishing Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/03/11
 

We haven't posted many offshore fishing reports lately becase we just can't get out.  The wind will not let up.  Normally you get a front, it blows a couple of days then you get a couple of nice days to fish.  For the past month at least the fronts are one after the next, leaving VERY narrow windows to fish.  Today was just one of the windows as it blew 25kts northeast yesterday and is forecast to blow 25kts tomorrow, but today was a nice 10kt day.  Barrett, Jacob and I loaded up on the OIFC Yellowfin and headed offshore with visions of Gag Grouper -- I just knew we could rehash old times and hammer them in 80 feet of water.  Well, guess again.  The water out to 35 miles looks like a mud puddle.  It is truly terrible dirty and lifeless.  We wasted a good portion of the day forcing the issue in 70-90 feet of water, but finally wisened up and ran offshore until we found good water-- 100 feet, 40 miles offshore.  We arrived and magically the fish were biting.  The bad news was the Red Snapper ate up all our Grouper baits.  No kidding, we hit a spot and caught 6 Red Snapper 10-25 pounds, cool but painful to have to release.  Anyway, we did catch our 3 fish limit of Gags pretty quick once we found the water and then messed with the Kings & Sharks for a while before heading in.  It was a nice day on the water.

"Dawson's Trout" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/02/11
 

The trout are biting! From Little River to Lockwood Folly River reports are coming in from all over that the bite is hot. We started out first thing this morning and found a few. We pounded the banks with artificials picking at a few here and there. After a few hours and several double hook ups with trout we ended the day with 25+ trout landed and 3 flounder. We saved a few good ones for the dinner table and released a bunch in the 2 to 3 pound range once we had six in the box. We were looking for a big one...I think our biggest one of the day was around 4 pounds. Still a great day on the water. I love it! Call us to get in on the action. See ya on the water!

"Got Trout?" | Tiberias - 22' | 10/29/11
 

The last two years winter has brought brutally cold weather to our area. The speckled sea trout population has suffered some loss no doubt as few were caught in the spring and summer months. Closures and lack of targeting the species may have also contributed to the lack in numbers caught earlier this year. I targeted the trout twice this past week and feel that we had a good spawning year. Lots of small fish in the 11" to13" range have been showing up with some 2 to 3 pounders in the mix. We have also caught several little trout in our cast nets as well. All good signs that trout are around and should rebound in numbers with hopefully a mild winter ahead of us. I look forward to some good fishing this next month targeting trout, reds, and flounder on artificials. Chase and Josh got in on the action yesterday! We landed several trout, 2 flounder, and one redfish. Thanks for fishing with me guys! See ya on the water!

"Leave of Absence Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/28/11
 

My wife Pam (Nannybird) had emergency surgery early this week.  We took her to the hospital because of severe pain.  Her bowels had knotted up for some unknown reason and she had to have a fair amount of them removed.  This was a near fatal situation.  She will be in the hospital for a while. Thanks for all the thoughts, prayers and concerns.

I will do a periodic update on the Fishing Report. I do a daily update on my personal FB page.  Many of my roving reporters send me updates and I will continue to post them.  Thanks again to everyone.

"Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/27/11
 

Wednesday Team OIFC headed out to enjoy the great weather -- the plan was to mix up spearfishing and live bait trolling -- the spear fishing yielded a few Grouper and Snapper, but the slow trolling produced some unexpected results -- Live Sardines at 80 feet on the downrigger near the BlackJack hole yielded a 20 pound Mutton Snapper (rare to this area and typically a Florida Keys fish) and a 50 pound Wahoo -- pretty cool, good fight.  It was nice to be on the water with friends/family, catching fish, good weather and no pressure -- life was good on Wednesday -- then it was back to work Thursday!

"REDS are HOT" | Get Busy | 10/27/11
 

Looks like shes going to blow,however inshore continues to be red hot. Fishing the docks of the ICW and oyster bars produced a double hand full of  redfish for some friends down the Little River way yesterday. Live shrimp and mullet minnows when you can find them are the ticket. There where reports of a few big redfish down arund the jetties yesterday as well.
