"Biloxi fishing report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/10/11
 

The whole gang has made it to Biloxi to participate in the SKA Nationals.  The scene is neat down here.  Barrett and I tallied it up last night and between Tuesday and Wednesday we have run over 500 miles in the boat -- lots of looking and getting the lay of the land-- our choice, not a necessity.  Tuesday we ran across the state of Louisiana to the famed West Delta (110 miles one way).  The area is very neat and pristine.  The really cool part is running through all the marshes and bayous of lower LA.  It is a natural preserve of every variety and a great display of how nature and man interact (lots of oil industry down there).  Trust me, nature is doing just fine.  Anyway, we scouted out the West Delta, found some neat stuff and have that logged in the memory bank.  Wednesday we ran due south of Biloxi and prodded around from 100 foot depths to 300 foot depths.  The one way run to the farthest point was around 80 miles.  We had a good day and found some some good info.  The weather both days was very good.  A strong cold front passed through Weds PM and its blowing Thursday but looks to lay out for fishing Friday and Saturday, Friday may be a little sloppy in the AM.  Anyway, everyone is busy collecting bait and getting ready.  I just hope the fish bite like they have been; for everyones sake, but especially the guys that have never been here before.  To experience the Biloxi bite is just a requirement, it is awesome.  Here are a few pics to wet your appetite from last couple of days.  I'm posting a new video to our You Tube account too - pretty funny.  Check it out - http://www.youtube.com/user/oifc1 - if its not up now, check back, uploading now.

"The Saga Continues" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/09/11
 

The Get Floor'd crew got under way this morning.  They promptly blew a trailer tire.  That fixed, the last report was they had cleared Atlanta.  This is a real test of their determination!  Robbie Roberts of the King Hunter/Bell and Bell GMC heard of the Get Floor'd's truck problem and immediately offered the services of the dealership.  Bell and Bell is a loyal sponsor of the OIFC's Tournaments and also provides the shuttle vehicles.

The Hail Yeah crew were amazed with Biloxi and urges everyone to go to the Nationals next year just to see the event.  The wind is supposed to blow but settle down for the Tournament.  Below are a couple of pictures they sent.

"Great News!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/09/11
 

One of the area's best inshore anglers and a member of the S.C.Recreational Fisheries Advisory Committee has passed along this article which reports great news about menhaden management.  It's worth a read.

Thanks Dr. Jeff.

"Safe And Sound" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/09/11
 

Got word today that all the OIFC and Brunswick County boats have made it to Biloxi safely with the arrival of the CrossfitOIB sponsered F-250 pulling the 36 ft.Get Floor'd Contender.  Now many family members will be flying down to meet their anglers.

Below are a couple pictures Capt. Jeff Beck sent me today.  Wouldn't it be nice to have structure to fish around?

"Work'n on the Trout" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/09/11
 

The trout fishing remains steady. Fish are showing up in all the usual places. Docks, canals, and deep holes in the creeks are all producing fish. The deeper holes and dock pilings seem to be producing the larger fish. Lots of small fish showing up in the canals, both OIB and Holden. Docks along the ICW are producing some solid fish in the 2 to 4 pound range, with a solid 6.3 pounder coming out from one dock. Shoulda, coulda, oughta been in the rodeo!

Again, live shrimp is hard to beat, but even harder to get right now. Artificials are doing well as the bait has thinned out quite a bit. Gulp shrimp, DOA's, Bass Assassain Sea Shads, and C.A.L. soft plastics in chartreuse combinations have all been working well. Good Luck! See ya on the water!

"The Road To Biloxi" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/08/11
 

This almost sounds like the old gag "Who's On 1st.  Captain Jeff Beck (Team OIFC/Do Work), has joined forces with Brian Aycock and his crew of the OIFC/Hail Yeah.  Their battle cry is Hail Yeah Do Work!.  They left for Biloxi about 1 pm today and crossed into Mississippi about 10:30 pm.

Captain Zach Faulkner and Team Get Floor'd/OIFC left for Biloxi with his crew about 3:30pm.  They made it to Florence, S.C. and had tow vehicle trouble.  Not to be deterred, Capt. Jeff and Capt. Zach talked and decided on a plan of action.

Corey Bellamy, Ella's Fishing Team is going by Jeff's house on the way to Biloxi, pick up Jeff's truck and take it to Zach in Florence.  Corey will drop Jeff's truck off and continue on to Biloxi.  Zach will hook up Jeff's truck and he'll continue to Biloxi.

Is that confusing or what.  But it shows that Team OIFC sticks together and with Corey involved, Brunswick County boys will survive.  Meanwhile this reporter is hanging back in Brunswick Co. taking care of Mrs. Pam who is in good hands at Brunswick Novant Medical Center and coordinating efforts here.

The boat below is the Hail Yeah in for a final pit stop before the finish line at the Nationals.  Also below are pictures of Team Hail Yeah and their 2nd place Fall Brawl king and Team Get Floor's with their Fall Brawl 3rd place king.The final pic is the Get Floor'd on the road awaiting assistance.

"WAHOO this weekend" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/07/11
 

Folks, looks like we are finally going to get a break from the wind this coming weekend.  There is stable weather coming and the ocean is going to be beautiful.... This IS the best time of the year for outstanding Wahoo action in the Gulf Stream.  I am putting together a Make up charter for this Saturday to go to the Gulf Stream to whack the Wahoo's.  There are also plenty of Blackfin Tuna and Sailfish out there to be caught as well.  The Hook a Hoo tournament is going on as well so if those who sign up are interested in entering, we can discuss that as well.  I am looking for 4 folks to go along on this adventure.  Cost is $395 per person.  This will be a 12-13 hour trip offshore hopefully with lots of action.  If you have never been to the Gulf Stream, NOW is the time. If you have been before, then you know its the time.  Call me at 910.620.9919 for details and to book your spot on this trip.  If more than 4 want to go, the price will be less.

Robert Speir caught these red drum around the Craven St docks Sunday afternoon.  He had a double on to start off, then another he released.  The action was fast and furious then turned off.  Robert was using shrimp and mud minnows.

WOW, folks are really wanting to get out on the water for some great fishing and great weather. Our Make-up charter for Saturday is fully booked.  Because of the popularity of the Make-up charter on Saturday, we are going to add an additional trip for Sunday. If anyone is wanting to get after the Wahoo's, Tuna and Billfish, call me at 910.620.9919 to book your spot. Weather is just getting better and better every time I check it. Should be light and slight all weekend. Lets go fishing. Cost is $395 per person for the trip on Sunday.  Call with questions or to book your spot.

"Important Dredging News" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/06/11
 

This report provides a link to an article in the Wilmington Star News about buoy removal, how it effects charter insurance and dredging.  To me it is a must read in order to stay up to date on inlet issues.

Just speaking for me and not representing any position the OIFC may have (because I haven't talked with anyone about the subject) I think the state purchasing it's own dredge to keep the inlets clea is a good idea.

On the fishing front there is little going on because of the weather.  Most everyone is preparing to go to the SKA Nationals and will pull out Monday or Tuesday.  Also anyone who needs trailer repairs we use a local man, Radar, (Anita's dad).  All the OIFC teams headed to Biloxi have had him go through their trailers. The OIFC only recommended people we use for our own needs.  Contact the OIFC for his number.

"Windy Conditions" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/06/11
 

The windy conditions have been keeping offshore fisherman at bay. It appears that the wind is not going to let up anytime soon and allow for any ocean fishing this week. Inshore action remains strong as the wind only seems to brother the fishermen and not the fish. Jeff Wallen proved just that yesterday. We had brutally strong winds 25 to 35kts with gust up 40kts. yesterday, yet Mr. Wallen and son Josh managed to find a few fish. Mr. Wallen wieghed in a 2.1 trout and 2.3 trout which improved his rodeo standings. Unfortunely, still not quite big enough to take over Brandon Sauls 3.9 lead. Mr. Wallen released his fish alive and well here at dockside. Also in the livewell were a nice redfish and a black drum. Conditions may have been tough, but the fish were still biting.

What is working? Live shrimp, floating them under a cork has been the go to method to finding the big ones. Can't get shrimp? Artificials on a light jighead worked slowly across mud bottom, shell banks, and grass beds will also work well this time of year. Reports have been coming in from Little River to Wrightsville Beach that the bite has been good. Locally we have been catching them around the Sunset Beach area and the Shallote Inlet. During windy conditions find the sheltered side of the intercoastal waterway, inlets, and canals to be successful. See ya on the water!

"Team OIFC headed to Biloxi" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/06/11
 

Barrett and I are heading out tomorrow AM with boat in tow, heading to Biloxi,MS.  The drive is not much to look forward to, 13 hours.  The hope is to keep all the tires on the trailer between here and there, and the boat on the trailer; not always a guarantee.  We plan to do some scouting/messing on Tuesday and Wednesday before competition begins on Friday and Saturday.  Winning is really a second thought when making this voyage.  The hope is to find the "bite" of fish where we can enjoy some of the best King Mackerel fishing in the country; catching the biggest fish will be luck and a bonus.  Many Carolina teams will be making the trip and hopefully the title will be brought back to the Carolinas.  We will try to report from down there, so stay tuned.

"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.
