Just in case you've been under a rock, or without a computer like me, this is the link to the video of the great white shark off Wrightsville Beach this week.

During this fishing season I left 2 of my cameras with the off shore captains so they could share action shots. We jokingly call the cameras "gaff cams", because I often attach them to a gaff in order to get underwater action videos.
Because of illness in my family I've been away from the OIFC and I forgot about one of the cameras until Captain Steele called to see how things are going.
All this to say I picked up the camera and here are some recent shots of the action aboard the OIFC Cat Boats. Hope you enjoy. Come see us during the holiday season.
Last night was a grand night at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center! We had a big crowd enjoying the Ocean Isle Beach Flotilla, C & C's Hot Chocolate and Sweets as well as our Black Friday (and Saturday) Blow Out Sale. We still have plenty of items in the store so don't forget to use your Captains Club Points.
The lovely Katelyn is our resident Grinch.
Captain Jim Bowen and the crew of the Stick Slinger Sea Hunt out of Little River, S.C. sent these pictures of some kings they caught this Friday. They limited on the kings and had to throw several back. They said they couldn't tell me where they were. DUH?
That had to be fun!!!!!!
Steven Chase(Grandpa), Derrick Chase(Son), Dalton(Grandson), and Baylor(Grandson) joined us for a half day inshore fishing trip yesterday. It sure beat fighting the crowds at the mall shopping to save a few bucks! We headed for the Jetties. We started picking off a few trout with a couple keepers in the mix. I decided to change gears a bit and put some live mullet minnows on the bottom. Baylor was immediately rewarded with a nice 26" redfish peeling off some line! Baylor did an excellent job angling and landed the brute after a few minutes of tug of war! A few pictures later, Dalton was hooked up on another drag screamer! Dalton man handled the 25" brute to the boat and ended the fight quickly. Two reds and two trout in the box, plenty for dinner. We continued to catch a few more redfish and trout, but released them to fight another day. It was a beautiful peaceful day on the water. Great memories made with a great group of guys. Thank you guys! See ya on the water!
Pictured below are Mrs. Janelle Dawson and Miss Cassie Dawson (an OIFC Staff Smiling Face) with a couple of trout they caught on 11-20-11. Husband/father, OIFC Capt. Chris Dawson quoted me a Zac Brown lyric "knee deep in the water somewhere" when asked about where they were caught. My educated guess is overhead in the water at the Little River Jetties on live shrimp. Just saying.
Brandon and Austin Aycock were joined today by Camdyn Beck for a friendly "tournament in a tournament" in the OIFC Year Round Rodeo. At the end of the day, Captain Jeff Williamson weighed Camdyn's trout at the OIFC at 2.9 lbs.
You can tell by the pictures where they were fishing. Also by the picture of the back in action "Shrimpin' Ain't Easy", taken yesterday what they were using.
The guys were fishing under the supervision of their dads, Brian Aycock and Capt. Jeff Beck.
Brandon and Austin are fresh back from fishing the SKA Nationals. It's great to see we have a lot of youth involved in salt water fishing.
Stand back!!!! I followed Captain Brant's advice and stepped away from the magnets. I was able to re size the picture of the other Plyler King and get it on the report!!!
Nice kings guys. Also don't bring magnets around me...for real!
Meet the Plyler's. Or at least half of them anyway. Derrick and Erik Plyler sent 2 pics of kings they caught at the tower. Sad thing is I could only get one pic to upload. I contended it was a format issue. Brant said I was standing too close to magnets and needed to step back. (My bionic brain is magnetically powered) Since only one uploaded it may be a little of both.
Sorry about the 2nd pic folks, it was of a nice king.
