The big story Friday was this nice cobia caught at the Shark Hoke on a charter Captained by Chris Dew and Chris Eckert, along with guests Stuart, Wade and Chuck.  The fish was caught 30 ft.down on the downrigger baited with a pogey.  Generally speaking, cobia hit on a bait tossed in the prop wash.,

"Kissie Kissie" | Get Busy | 05/29/11
 

They "Salty Daze" Sea Hunt joined the action at the OIFC docks Saturday afternoon with a boat full of folks who were happy to get back on the water.  They also had this nice flounder shown in the picture with "Tater Bug" Staley and her dad.  The actual angler was Benji Cole, whom along with his wife Jennifer were celebrating their 6th wedding anniversary.  The flounder was caught at the Caudle Reef on pogies Todd Holt caught while they were in front of the Ocean Isle Marina on the ICW.

"Those Aren't Dolphin?" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/28/11
 

Capt. Steele and I worked on getting the store in shape for you guys this weekend. We are fully stocked on ice, beer, and bait. Drifting mud minnows in tubbs inlet for flounder has been the ticket lately and Shallotte inlet has also produced some nice fish. Steele and I had to go give it a shot for a few minutes this afternoon. We had live bait as a back up option. Many of you probably didn't know this about Capt. Steele, but he use to be quite the bass fisherman. Which fits in perfect with the way I like to catch'em. Our goal was to catch some flatfish on artificials. We caught a trout first, then landed two nice flounder. We headed toward another creek, landed a trout there and missed a couple. Headed for the next creek and landed another nice flounder. In just a few short minutes we had 3 keeper flounder in the boat on the 4" Sea Assassin in Chartureuse Diamond. We stock them here at the OIFC and if you are lucky I might be around to tell you how to work'em. Truth is...you don't work them, they work for you!   See ya on the water!

"Got Tha Touch!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/25/11
 

Captains Steele and O.C. have got the touch when it comes to blue water fishing.  The ocean today was a little less than desirable, but the Captains along with "The Parker Boys", Capt. William (Hound Dog), Charles and Fred headed to the Steeples.  They returned with 15 mahi, 10 of which weighed over 20 lbs.  William said he'd have more info. and pics tomorrow.

"Giant Tuna Anyone?" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/25/11
 

All the details are set for the Giant Bluefin Tuna adventure to Prince Edward Island Canada this Fall.  This is our next excursion for the Traveling Fisherman program out of the Ocean Isle Fishing Center.  Prince Edward Island (PEI) is the giant bluefin tuna capital of the world.  These cool water behmouths average 700lbs but often reach weights over 1000lbs.  They come to the nearshore waters in the Fall off PEI to gorge on the plentiful baitfish before making their migration.  That's is where we'll be to greet them from September 10th-13th of 2011.  If you've ever wanted to test your manhood against the most powerful creature that swims, this is your chance.  Whether you want to go toe toe stand up style or just hold on for dear life in the rod holder, this is the opportunity to make it happen.  We will be fishing 2 days with 2 boats capable of carrying 5 fishermen each.  Currently we have 3 spots left to fill.  Contact captbarrett@oifc.com or 910-279-6104 to claim your spot.  The cost is $1000 per person and includes 2 days fishing, accommodations and transportation from the airport to the marina/hotel.  The hotel is located right on the water at the wharf and there are restaurants within walking distance.  I'm very excited to fish a new piece of turf and have the chance to do battle with a true giant.  I have a score to settle from giant tuna that whipped my butt a few years ago locally.  Check out some pics from the PEI tuna fishery, check out the tuna marks on the recorder and live bait tanks....it's about to be on.  Sign up now!

"390's" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/24/11
 

Good friend Tim Gallimore (Breakwater Building and Design in Shallotte) sent these pictures of Courtney Waddell holding a 22 lb cobia and a 5.5 lb spanish they caught while fishing aboard Tim's 18 ft. Parker while slow trolling pogies at  the 390's Sunday.

Tim said there was about an acre of pogies being ambushed by blues and spanish.  He said he could not hardly pull his cast net in the boat because it was so full of pogies.

Thanks Tim and Courtney for the report and pictures.

"Just Floundering Around" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/24/11
 

I was joined by Micah, J.B., Seth, and Rick today for a 4 hour backwater Adventure. As always we try and capitalize the adventure part, becuase the fish don't always cooperate. Just so happens the adventure part was a bonus today. We started out looking for a redfish at dead low tide, but it wasn't meant to be. We headed for tubbs to see if we could get a parking space. We beat most of the crowd as Capt. Jeff and myself were the only two boats at first. I power drifted towards the mouth of the inlet. We hooked our first two fish and both were keepers. Sweet! We worked the area over pretty hard, but only picked up one more small one. Meanwhile, several more boats were stacking up in the landing pattern. I decided it was time to make a move. We rolled on up to the bridge and tried for a redfish. Just wasn't going to happen on the redfish today? We moved on towards the Shallotte Inlet. We started our drift and once I got everyone situated, I pulled out the artificials. Hehehe.... I made a few cast and hooked a flounder. One of the guys traded his live bait rod for mine real quick! I chunked the live mud minnow in the next flounders mouth and traded rods with another guy. I was back to fishing artificials again. J.B. had sat down to enjoy a beverage of choice. I hooked up on a fish...redfish! Nothing like seating down drinking a cold one and reeling in a fish. J.B. landed our one and only redfish of the day. Now lets find that trout for the slam. I think we had a few chances, but we lost alot of fish today. The flounder bite was on fire though. Micah landed our largest flounder of the day at 22 inches...and yes it was on artificials. We closed the day there and headed for the dock to prepare some great eating! See ya on the water!

"SAVE OUR GOATS" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/24/11
 

Althought the State has backed off their plans to remove the Ocean Isle goats from Goat Island, they indicate the issue is not dead. SO........in case they bring this issue back up again, I think we need to establish a legal defense fund so the Goats can hire themselves a lawyer if it turns out they need one. The public did a great job getting the State to back off, but if this comes back up again, at that point we will probably need to throw a lawyer at them to represent the goats. SO.....let's establish the SAVE OUR GOATS FOUNDATION. This will be a war chest in the event the State can't find something more important to mess with than the goats. When the State learns the goats have their own lawyer, maybe they will decide they can better spend taxpayer money than fighting a goat lawyer over a goats right to live where it wants.

We will start the process by contributing the first $100 to the account. If you would like to support this effort[with any amount you can],  please send checks made out to:

SAVE OUR GOATS

c/o Ocean Isle Fishing Center[OIFC]

65 Causeway Drive

Ocean Isle Beach, NC 28459

If it turns out the State concludes this matter is closed, we can take the money and buy special food for the goats to celebrate their victory! Thanks for you help. Rube McMullan

"RFA Fundraiser at OIFC" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/23/11
 

The Ocean Isle Fishing Center/Jolly Mon King Classic will be hosting an RFA fundraiser on Friday, June 17th from 5-7pm. The main attraction will be a dunking booth featuring: Jack Holmes (SKA director), Tim Haney (Yamaha promotions) and Brant McMullan (OIFC manager/Jolly Mon director). The event should be a hoot and I know there are MANY fishermen out there who would to see Jack dunked. Sorry boys, the safety net will be up, despite several attempted bribes to remove it for Jack's turn. Also, there will be raffles for all sorts of items from Penn, Yamaha, Star Rods, Pelagic, Salt Life, Ocean Tamer.........
This fundraiser will be held in conjunction with the Jolly Mon captain's dinner and meeting. It should be an exciting atmosphere. Family involvement is always a priority and great food will be served compliments of sponsor Guy C. Lee of Shallotte. You won't want to miss this one! ---

Contact Capt. Brant McMullan with questions- 910 367-2945 or info@oifc.com

1st wahoo- OFFICE 2- John Munroe- 26.75, 2nd wahoo- BLACK PEARL- David Hooks- 19.05

26 boats fished the tournament.  Thanks to all for entering and taking advantage of the 1 out of 8 day format.  The weather was not good the first weekend and most of the week, but it turned out great for the last weekend.  Most boats entered and fished Thursday-Saturday.  The only problem with this format is not many people come to either the Capt. Meeting or the Awards, as participants are dispersed since they have so much time to choose to fish.  In the past the Capt. Meeting has been a great social event with good food and camaraderie.  I hate to see this go away, but we also can't have a tournament without people who want to fish - and thus, the format attracts participation but we lose the social aspect.  I will work to come up with ideas to make this part better for the future.  Open to ideas- captbrant@oifc.com -  thanks again to all who fished and thanks to our sponsors www.thegpsstore.com , www.seatow.com , www.oceanislemarina.com and www.marineservicecenter.com -

here are some pictures from the tournament

"In Shore Action The Past Few Days" | Get Busy | 05/23/11
 

We've been covering the FOSO the past couple of days and neglected some of the in shore stuff.  As can be seen in the pictures the flounder are finally getting bigger so I can stow away my flounder stretcher.  Also Tommy Helms, flounder fisherman extraordinaire reported Tubbs Inlet full of pogies...most king fishing size.  (Thanks Rube and everyone involved for keeping the pogy boats away).

Below are some pictures of Tommy Helms with our old pal Tommy Lytten's nephew, Capt. J Dogg Williamson (Get Busy/OIFC), Ryan Neuwirth of OIB, and the lovely and gracious Miss Virgina Beckham, formally of the OIFC  and some of the nice flat fish they caught.

**** Capt. Brandon Sauls didn't catch any fish this weekend.  But I had to put this picture of him on the report.  As our t shirt says  "If you're going to be dumb, you better be tough".  After this, that saying may apply to me.

"Steele park" | Real-Time Update | 05/22/11
 

Fished the gulf stream today aboard a friends boat, the Over Equipped. Fished to the east around the same ole hole. 1 nice wahoo, 6 gaffer dolphins, 2 blackfins and 2 grouper. Wish we could have had that day yesterday during the foso. Fish are still out there, just a little tough as they are scattered. Best advice I can give is fish inshore of the numbers. They seem to be holding in shallower water. Got some good video of the hoo. Will post on our youtube page asap.

"Shallotte Inlet Buoy report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/22/11
 

For those traversing the Shallotte Inlet: There is plenty of water in the inlet, BUT you need to hug the green markers going out the inlet.  At marker #3, stay to the right of the green going out. Brant tried to relocate the #3 markers further to the west, but said they are buried and he couldn't move it. There is a sand bar to the east of #3, so staying to the right[west] of #3 will give you plenty of water.
