"" | Real-Time Update | 07/02/11
 

Fished with my friends aboard the "Over Equipped out of bald head island yesterday in the area of the blackjack. While the bite was a little slow, we did manage this nice sailfish and a 30lb wahoo. Saw several white marlins on top sunning. Definately in a summer pattern in the gulf stream but if you want to hunt billfish, now is the time. Headed out in the morning for an 8 hour charter aboard the carolina cat in search of kings, mahi's and ajs. Will report on that tomorrow. Catch'em up. Capt. Steele

"Capt. Brant's Afternoon Charter" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/02/11
 

Captain Brant and 1st Mate Aaron caped a very productive day fishing in the afternoon with Tracy Dedrick, Brooke Depinto, Chris Depinto, Mark Reynolds and Chris (I can't read my own writing..sorry).  They returned to the Shark Hole area where the fishery had changed for the afternoon.  But they had a very productive and fun day with a great group, as you can tell by the picture.

"Capt. Brant's Morning Charter" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/02/11
 

Captain Brant and 1st Mate Aaron Dew along with Jordan Lee of W. Va., Al Poling of Texas, and Bo and Jeremy Osborn Ohio headed out at around 6:15 Friday morning.  Due to the fog they didn't bother looking for pogies  and instead opted for cigar minnows from the fresh shipment we just got in.  The Cat boat went to the Shark Hole and the bite fired off around 8:30.  By the time they returned to the OIFC they had caught kings, sea bass, sharks (released ) and released a 42 inch 'cuda.

"Back to Back" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/01/11
 

Mr. Reardon and Mr. Lenda joined us with their two sons Alex and Matthew on a 1/2 day afternoon trip yesterday. The tide was low and slack when we started. This is usually a really good time to catch redfish around the docks and in deep holes. Again, the pinfish were thick and stole a lot of our bait. As the tide started to pull and rise, we went back to flounder fishing. It wasn't long before we had the boys reeling in a few flounder. Mr. Reardon was getting the hang of the flounder bite and smoked quite a few small ones toward the end of our trip. However, his son Matthew was not to be out done. Matthew landed a 4.8 pound flounder! Alex also landed a nice 16" fish. I think the boys out did their dads on this trip. We even caught a shark! That was the only request the boys had. I never would have thought we would have caught a shark. Hopefully, Mr. Reardon will send me a photo of the baby black tip that we caught. Pretty cool! Thanks for fishing with the OIFC guys! See ya on the water!

"Floundering around" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/01/11
 

David Boone, Jason and Garrett joined us on an inshore 1/2 day trip yesterday morning. The wind finally switched from the SW to the ENE, bringing with it a lot of smoke from inland. We caught some perfect size flounder pogies in the canal in front of the OIFC. We headed around the corner and picked up a few small flounder with one keeper. Headed for the Shallote Inlet and caught a few more short flounder with one more keeper. We started hitting docks for redfish, but could not locate them. We used live shrimp, mullet, pogies, and pinfish. We ended the day back at our first spot to land the last keeper of the day. Live shrimp is your best option to catch red drum and black drum right now, but the pinfish are thick! Try to have patience and be willing to feed a few trash fish before getting the bite you want. Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya on the water!

"Kingfish!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/29/11
 

Wesley Thomas, Kevin Beverley, Ryan Rodgers and Michael Beverley headed out king hunting this weekend.  On Sunday they found bait with no problem.  Somewhere along the way and over no structure they decided to let lines out.  It was a good thing.  The action was fast and furious.  After catching 4 kings they decided to head further out to catch some mahi.  There was no action there so they returned to their king hole.  They boated a smoker in the 30 lb range.

Come Monday the guys headed back to the same numbers and found the bite was still on.  Their best luck was on Jr. Islanders.  The color didn't seem to matter.  By 11 o'clock they had met their 3 man, 9 per boat limit on kings.

Wesley sent some cool pics, but unfortunately they were in the jpeg format so I couldn't use them.  Hint, hint.

"Just Married" | Get Busy | 06/28/11
 

Mark Bond, Mark Engle and Zach Engel from the Columbus Ohio area fished with Captain Jeff Williamson Sunday.  Zach, who must have married a wonderful woman, tied the knot Saturday on the beach.  His lovely bride let him go fishing the next day.  Enjoy Zach, that will change!  All the fish were released unharmed.

This was at the beginning of the wild, almost heard of 3 day blitz of red drum at the Sunset Beach Bridge.  This bite was a charter captain's dream!  There were many captains from several charter companies working together.  Some were even rafted off to each other and having a ball.  The bite was great but even better was the friendship and teamwork among all the Captains.  Awww..wasn't that just so introspective of me?

"Yellowfin Tuna!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/27/11
 

I just talked with Captain Dan Rately (Quick Draw) who told me he fished near the 100/400 this weekend with Captain Allen Murry 1st Mate Daniel Terry (Wilmington, N.C.) and Bobby Bleecker, owner of Bleecker Motors, aboard Bobby's 47 ft Buddy Davis the "J&B".  Bobby was on his way back from the Big Rock and wanted to do some fun fishing.

Dan said for the 1st time in years they caught several yellowfin tuna and missed several more.  He also said they saw a couple of nice blue marlin sky in the middle of the tuna.  The yellowfin are like candy to the blue marlin.  Dan was excited to finally have yellowfin back in our area and wanted me to share the news!!!

"Why The Smile?" | Get Busy | 06/26/11
 

I wonder what Captain Jeff and Jerry Ridenhour were grinning about this afternoon?  I just found out.  A 9 lb 6 oz, 30 1/4 in flounder with a 26 in. girth they caught on a 2" mullet minnow in the Shallotte River.

Enough to make you smile.

"Hot Sea Bass Bite an a King Too!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/26/11
 

The in shore red drum bite has been wild.  The off shore has once again been a little too bumpy for a fun time.  That is up until yesterday when Captain Chris  "OC" Dew and first mate Aaron Dew embarked on a 6 hr charter with P.J. Wachteler, Dean and Jackson Dyas as well as Ron Smith (all of Fayetteville) and Frank Zwan (Charlotte).

The Cat Boat went to the shark hole.  As soon as 1st mate Aaron got the 2nd line in it was hammered by a king.  13 yr Old Jackson took the rod and after a little landed his 1st king!

A quick bite can mean one of two things  Either the action is going to be red hot, or zero.  In this case the king action turned off.  So the group elected to bottom fish.  The sea bass bite was so fast and furious that as soon as one person would get set up to fish, another was reeling in a bass.  The charter limited on sea bass, so you can only imagine how many were actually caught.

As a side note, Captain Chris said he couldn't find any pogies.  Captain Jeff Beck and I took The It Works out Sunday morning and no one was finding bait.  The birds were diving along the tide line and we were marking bait at about 23 ft., we also saw a couple of flips, but nothing to throw on..

"Fishing with the Vines" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/26/11
 

Ralph Vines and crew joined me for a 1/2 day trip. The two little guys, Spencer and Jackson greeted me with the request that we break world records today. No pressure right? Not only do they want to catch fish, but they want to break world records. Well, we didn't break any world records, but we caught a few fish. Jackson gave us the kiss of death on our first spot by catching a keeper flounder on the first cast. I had just given him the rod and was trying to bait another hook when he just started reeling. I got one! I got one! No hook set and rod pointed straight at the fish. I couldn't tell what he had. No worries! A 16" flounder gets air lifted in the boat like a bass fisherman just won the tournament. Awesome! We caught two more short flounder and the bite shut down. We moved around trying to find a place to hide from the wind. We caught a lady fish, trout, and a bluefish during some of our moving. At the last minute and on the way home, I stopped by one more spot. First cast was a black drum, second was a 17" red drum, croakers, and grunts on ever cast after that. We ended the trip with 15 minutes of chaos. Thanks for fishing with the OIFC guys. Hope to see you next year! See ya on the water!

"Colin and Cassie" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/26/11
 

Rusty Hill brought his two children out for a 1/2 day trip. We worked on the pinfish, croaker, blues and small flounder. Finally, Colin was screaming I got one! I got one! There is nothing like hearing those words from a kid when the drag is screaming the same thing in unison. Colin landed a nice redfish, his sister Cassie poses with them both in the picture below. Awesome kids! We tried to hold out a few more minutes to get Cassie one of her own, but both where playing ball games later that evening.  I enjoyed the day on the water with you guys. Good luck with baseball and softball. See ya on the water!

"Adam Park Returns" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/26/11
 

Adam booked his third trip with me this past week. Each time he brings along a new fisherman. Mr. Pitt was his guest on our first trip and landed our best trout of the day. I must mention that Mr. Pitt was a small mouth guide for 20 years! No pressure! Adam also had his friend Chad with us. Adam came back this past winter with Chad and his Dad. Chad put a spanking on everyone that day, landing 7 out of the 10 reds we caught. I am wondering if that is why Adam left him at the house on this trip? Adam brought along his Uncle Tom this go around. We worked on a few redfish in the lower slot around 19" to 22" inches, black drum, sheepshead, and flounder. Live shrimp has really been the ticket lately. Using a carolina rig or just a light jighead drifting the shrimp beside pilings and oyster bars will get r done. Live mud minnows, mullet, and pinfish are still putting a few flounder in the boat. We are still managing a handfull each trip, but the keepers are few and far between. Adam thanks for fishing with us and keep bringing folks back to us. See ya on the water!
