"Busy Day" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/14/11
 

Every OIFC Charter boat + Captain Barrett's "Tree Shaker" Yellowfin were pressed into service today.  When the fishing is good, business is good!  Near shore, Captain Zach Faulkner and Captain Chris Eckert had a couple of short trips.  This allowed them to absolutely slay the spanish mackerel.  This is good news to us king mackerel anglers as spanish make excellent bait.  Further good news is the pogies are thick close to shore.

Meanwhile, Captain Chris Dew and 1st mate Aaron Dew on one of the World Cats and Captain Steele on the "Tree Shaker" Yellowfin had longer trips.  All was well until the wind picked up and made the ocean "not too fun".  Chris managed a couple of mahi and some other incidental fish.  Steele got a couple of teenage kings.  Mother Nature made it a not to fun day to fish.

Back at the docks, the OIFC is getting in Jolly Mon mode.  Tents have been put up and the finishing touches on most everything are being completed.  We expect a lot of boats this year, so come join the fun!

"14 Flounder" | Get Busy | 06/14/11
 

Captain Jeff and his charter Phil, Russ, Tyler and Josh from Mo. worked against the east to have a very successful charter today.  The guys caught 14 flounder and a trout.  The ones which weren't "legal" were released safe and sound.

Captain Jeff used mud minnows while fishing the falling tide.

"Staying with It" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/14/11
 

The flounder bite continues to remain the go to fishing inshore right now. A few trout have been caught, but are few and far between. Season is slated to open tomorrow. The red drum have been inconsistent and on the move lately. The docks and deep holes should start to produce some redfish. Right now, the flounder are laying on all the sandbars, mud slicks, and pot holes. Live bait in any type seems to be working. Little pogies are thick in the natural canals, tiger minnows on sandbars at low tide, small mullet are everywhere, my favorite has been baby pinfish and croakers. If all fails, remember we have premium select mud minnows here at the OIFC. Gauranteed to wiggle on the other end of the line! :) Hopefully, the full moon will kick the flounder into high gear this weekend. See ya on the water!

Below John Toole, Spencer, Josh, and Connor show off their catch from earlier today.  John Toole is a sheriff and kept us all straight on the water today. Great group of guys from my hometown! Small world...Catch'em up at Lake Murry guys! Thanks for fishing with us! Hope to see you again in the near future!

"Full Moon Flounder Bite" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/13/11
 

Josh and Lori joined me on a half day trip this morning. We looked for flounder sized pogies first thing this morning, but the cloud cover had the bait deep. I decided to fish for a little while where the bait has been thick. We landed a few small fish and Josh drilled our first keeper of the day, about 18". Just as the action was getting started, I saw the pogies starting to pop on top. I eased over and got a net full. We made a boat ride and tried for red drum with no luck. Made another quick boat ride and found the flounder. Shallote inlet is on fire! Lori drilled our two best fish of the day, both over 4 lbs. Awesome! We had lots of throw backs, but ended the day with 5 nice keepers. I enjoyed it guys! Hope to see you again next year and hopefully Josh gets his answer to that question :) See ya on the water!

"Jolly Mon stratigical fish/weather report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/13/11
 

Where to fish the Jolly Mon is the question of the week. Since I'm weighing your fish and not mine, I'll happily share what I see and think. A weak cold front comes thru Tuesday shifting wind to north, then northeast, then east by Thursday. The impact of this will be to clear up the already clear water even more along the beach front. By Friday and the weekend, the high pressure will have pushed off shore bringing a typical summer southwest wind flow. Typically it will be light to flat in morning, and blow 10-15 in the afternoon. SO..........wind off the beach most of the week clearing the beach water. Pogies has been up and down the beach mixed in with more blues than I have ever seen as well as spanish. Looking at history of where winning fish have come from in Jolly Mon, suggest spots light Lighthouse Rocks/Yaupon/Myrtle Beach Rocks/Lockwood Ledges. Basically close in spots that have structure where the Kings can jump into the beach to get a mouth full, and then return to the structure where they are more comfortable. Lighthouse/Myrtle Beach rocks/LL have good natural bottom and rocks; Yaupon has the artificial reef. Thats how I see it. We'll see. Good luck to everyone fishing the tourney.We're expecting a big turn out so come join in; somebody is going to win a whole bunch of money!  More updates to follow as info comes in.

"Racing Team Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/13/11
 

While Capt Brant might be too modest to report on this, I was there Saturday night  and saw first hand the number 19 Team OIFC limited late model race car driven by Capt Brant at the Myrtle Beach Speedway step it up and rub shoulders with the big boys.  The Milliken Racing team with Justin and Jamie Milliken leading the pit crew helped Capt Brant to his best finish yet behind the wheel.  He led the 30 lap race for 22 laps eventually being passed, but not without a fight, by former track champions.  He crossed the finish line in third place but like Jamie said, "they're going to know we were here".  Congratulations Team OIFC, Capt Brant and Milliken Racing.  Victory lane is on the horizon.

By the way, if anybody is interested in the best entertainment you can buy for $12 go check out these races at the Myrtle Beach Speedway every Saturday night this summer.  This is how racing used to be.

"Just In Time" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/13/11
 

Check out the kings Shane, Devon, Kimberly Britt and Chad Millard caught this weekend.  Shane reports they caught their fish in 50 ft of water using naked pogies.  They landed 4 kings, one 28#, one in the 20's and the other two were teenagers.

Check out the fishing reports for the past week and you'll see the king action is picking up just in time for the Jolly Mon.

Also, I got an unconfirmed report that a king was caught off the Ocean Isle Beach Pier.  This goes along with Rube's prediction that this year's bite will be a shore bite.

"Hunt Golfs?" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/12/11
 

Corey Bellamy and his uncle Patrick Bellamy landed these this morning.  They were using pogies they caught between the Little River Jetties and Sunset Beach.  Then he wanted to know if I wanted to go golfing with him and Capt. Chris Burrows tomorrow.  I'm not sure if my sportsmans license will cover golf hunting.  Do I need a stamp for that?

"Millie's 1st Mahi" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/12/11
 

Bart and Millie Norwood fished the 90's, making it out there bright and early at 11 am.  They noticed several boats working the area, so they began putting lines out about a mile from the numbers.  The 1st line hadn't been in the water but a minute or so before Millie's 1st ever mahi hit it.  We hope this gets Millie hooked on salt water fishing.  The sport needs more lady anglers.

"Flounder and Red Drum" | Get Busy | 06/11/11
 

Captain Jeff Williamson, aka J. Dogg of the OIFC Get Busy in shore charters fished with Mike McGurrey today.  The weather was fantastic as was the fishing.  The two of them caught 10 flounder and this 26" drum.  Jeff said they released them all because they had Fleas?

Captain William Parker said he released some catfish because they had fleas and I caught a couple of dog sharks with them too.  Anyone else experiencing this infestation problem other than us?

Also, unless Jeff is faking us out with this picture, I expect I know where everyone will be fishing after they read this report.

"Double Shot" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/10/11
 

Both OIFC Cat boats had full day charters today.  Captain Brant on the World Cat and Captains Steele and Zach on the Carolina Cat.  Both boats returned to the docks at about 4:30 pm with their missions accomplished.  Captain Steele and Captain Zach were running a charter booked by Gary Whitten.  They took this humble reporter's "gaff cam" on the trip.  Below are a series of photos which document their fruitful day.

"Go Tigers!" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/09/11
 

Mitch, Collin, and Joe joined me for a half day trip today. We started early this morning looking for reds and black drum. Collin landed a nice red, but that was it in our first area. We headed for the Shallote Inlet and picked up several flounder. We ended the day with 3 keepers. We caught most of the flounder on tiger minnows. It was a perfect fit as Mitchell Crawford played for the Clemson Tigers in the late 90's. Go Tigers! Tiger minnows can be located on any sandbar at low tide. The chartureuse diamond claimed a few fish, but no keepers on the jig today. Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya next year!
