"Bryan Freeman's Reel McCoy Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/01/11
 

Bryan ran off shore aboard Danial and Amber Simmon's Contender the "Reel McCoy".  Along with Bryan, Amber and Daniel were Tim Gallimore and Courtney Waddell.

The group bottom fished and got their limit of gags and scamps, some trigger fish and 6 small mahi who had to check the action out.  Daniel got the big grouper of the day with a 21.6 lb. gag.  They also caught a couple of blue spotted cornet fish and had plenty of amberjack action.

"9.2 lb Flounder" | Get Busy | 05/31/11
 

In the picture is Mike Trost of N. Myrtle Beach and a 9.2 lb flounder he caught at Cherry Grove this weekend. 

I just learned that Mike followed up his flounder fishing with an excursion to the Gulf Stream where he caught 18 Mahi.  Pretty exciting Memorial Day weekend if I say so myself.!

"The Mad Gaffer" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/31/11
 

Captain William Parker (Hound Dog) sent this picture of a nice mahi and kings he caught at the 65 ft Hole.  William said he had a big cobia on line but he missed with his gaff shot, only tearing away a little meat.  He tried to blame his sad gaffing abilities on some dolphin swimming around the cobia.  I think William has been watching too much "Flipper" on TV!

"Paddle Board" | Get Busy | 05/31/11
 

Capt. Jeff "J. Dogg " Williamson (Get Busy/OIFC) fished Tubbs inlet and the mouth of the Shallotte River this weekend and had great fortune.  Capt. Jeff said he was using OIFC Premium Mud Minnows.

Fishing along with Capt. J. Dogg were John and Ross Porter and friend Conrad Cutler.  The beauty on the paddle board is the lovely and gracious Virginia Beckham a former employee of the OIFC..  Virgina and her dad are excellent in shore anglers.  This picture has absolutely NOTHING to do with fishing, Jeff just wanted everyone to know there's more beauty in our area besides fish and goats.

"Stream Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/31/11
 

I know many of you including myself have been a bit discouraged over the slow down in action in the Stream this past week.  I've heard several mention the season was past.  Not True.  I just got off the phone with a very knowledgeable fisherman from Charleston who was griping about last week's Stream action too -- BUT, he said it got red hot on big Dolphin starting on Sunday and it is on right now.  So, there is another wave of Dolphin coming-- oh yeah, did I mention he also released two Whites a Blue and a Sail in 3 days of fishing.  Billfish too coming this way -- get ready.  Weather LOOKS PERFECT for this weekend- DO NOT miss this one -- going south may be the way to go to meet the fish head on -- we'll see you there.

"Morgan Carter" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/30/11
 

Eddie my next door neighbor has watched me clean fish for years on my dock. His son in law Brad Carter was in for the weekend with his two children, Morgan and Logan. Brad asked me to take them out for a little while to catch a few fish. I love kids! There is nothing like seeing kids get all excited catching fish. The difficult part is reeling the kids back in from all the excitment, so we don't lose the fish on the other end of the line. I eased into the area I wanted to fish, but the tide didn't quite look right. I asked them to just let me make a few cast to see if we had any action yet. I told Morgan to get ready just in case I hooked up, she was going to get the rod. My third cast produced the first fish of the day. I decided to pull up current of the spot and anchor up. We started tossing live bait and caught a few small ones. I decided the action was a little slow and time to move. I gave Brad and Eddie a quick lesson on working the jig and we difted on down the bank trying to locate some more fish. Eddie drilled a nice trout. Brad was getting the hang of it and was drilling some nice flatfish. Morgan and Logan kept busy running from the back to the front of the boat grabbing bent rods from us. I anchored up again and we fished the area over pretty hard. We picked up several flounder with a couple keepers in the mix. Again the action slowed, so we went back to the jig and drift technique. We picked up two of our best fish of the day at the same time. Double hook up!  It was time to head for the house and prepare for some great eating! I think we ended the day with 15 to 20 fish and several more opportunities. We had five keepers over 15" inches, which was more than enough for supper.  Thanks Eddie, Brad, Logan and Morgan! Jake also enjoyed playing with Logan and Morgan. We look forward to seeing you guys again soon. See ya on the water!

"Lady Angler of the Year" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/30/11
 

Jimmy, Jerry, and Alyssa just took their third trip in less than a year this past Sunday with me. They took their first trip with me this past August and we caught close to 40 fish. We only kept one of each species that day, although everyone on the boat Carolina Slammed at least twice. Jimmy couldn't believe the incrediable action and was disappointed he did not bring along his youngest daughter Marley. I explained that we had a great day and the action is not quite that hot all the time. Jimmy called me again in November and booked a trip for both his girls this time. I greeted them with this request. Since Marley was left behind on the first trip everyone was going to watch her fish until she caught one. Well, that didn't take long! Marley had a nice redfish to the boat on our second cast of the day. We picked threw a few redfish and several trout ending up with 15 to 20 fish landed that day. Just a little slower than our first time out, but enough to keep the girls busy. Jimmy called the other night looking for another great trip. The pressure was on to live up to the expectation of our last two trips. The flounder didn't let us down! We boated 25 to 30 flounder with 10 of them being keepers over the 15" mark. We had several more that just barely didn't make the new mark. An absolutely great day on the water! Alyssa gets my vote for Lady Angler of the Year! Great job guys! I enjoyed watching and netting each fish. Hope to see you guys again soon. See ya on the water!

"It Do Work" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/30/11
 

What do you get when you cross the OIFC's 27' Contender, the It Works with the OIFC's fishing team, Do Work?   You get a fairly good king fishing team aboard  a boat that knows how to fish.  We shouldn't become the OIFC/It Do Work instead of just going as "Do Work" do you agree?

Our day started by us finding a BIG school of pogies almost at the Coast Guard Station/light house.  We got enough bait to share, which we did,  Then we shot out to The Lighthouse Rocks".  There was absolute nothing going on.   OIFC Captain Dawson call us to meet him at the 90' Once there we pulled pogies on a green skirt, and pink skirt.  While we were getting rigged,  Captain Dawson hooked with a nice cobia.  Mrs. Jannell fought the cobia while Miss Cassie took pictures.

We had 2 kings break off and a nice ciobia cut the line on  a prop.  But we landed 2 kings and a 24.8 lb cobia before heading in so Coach Steve Lanier could coach his champion youth baseball team!

"Tubbs Inlet Fun" | Get Busy | 05/29/11
 

While the OIFC Charter Captains were running charters, I was at Tubbs Inlet on a play day with Camdyn's jet ski which I bought from Capt. Brant at the end of the season a couple of years ago.

While there I met Joey Holden who was spending the afternoon with Captain Jamie and Missy Millikin of Shallotte Electric and the new Beach Hardware on 179.  Joey had just landed this flounder and was preparing to release it when I snapped this photo.  Good job Joey!!!

"Russian Jammer" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/11
 

Captains Chris Dew and Zach Faulkner headed to the Gulf Stream with Dana Walker, Phil Walker, Mark Swisher and Scrogg Wood, all of Tenn.   These guys raise Russian Jammer dogs in the Volunteer State  They fished the Black Jack area using OIFC ballyhoo.  Below is a picture of a grouper and a mahi they brought back. 

The Memorial Day weekend is drawing to a close, but it's been a fish filled active weekend at the OIFC.  Let's hope the remainder of the season gets even better.

"The Whole Family" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/11
 

Dr. Jay Murphy, DVM, Patrick Hobson, Dan McArdle, all of Charlotte, N.C.  went fishing aboard Dr. Jay's Regulator boat today.  The crew went to the Black Jack Hole and caught, not a school, but a family of mahi.  They had a big ol' bull, a cow and a small dolphin who must have been the kid!  Jay said the water at the Black Jack was 75 degrees, not much of a change from the beach water temps.

While Jay was refueling the boat, Captain Jeff Williamson (Get Busy/OIFC) cleaned the fish.  Not a bad deal.

"The Wilmington Three" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/11
 

Captain Steele took a trio from Wilmington, Chad Ludeig, Jamie Kubrock, and Richard Chandler to the Horseshoe yesterday.  Steele said they fished ballyhoo in the 76 degree water.  The group returned to the OIFC around 5:45 pm with several mahi and teenage kings.

This past week has been a productive week from the inshore to the blue water.  The wind blew a couple of days, but the ocean really started to flatten by Saturday afternoon.  The kings are playing games with us right now but based on past history that ought to be changing shortly.  We have a boat in the Gulf Stream today.  I hope to have some good reports by tonight.  Right now I'm jumping on one of Brant's referbed jet skis and headed to Tubbs Inlet for a day of fun with the fam!

"Tree Shaker" | Get Busy | 05/29/11
 

Capt. Brandon Sauls weighed this 4.2 lb tree shaker in at the OIFC Saturday after noon.  This was one of several flounder he caught that day.  His goal was to knock Clay Morphis off the oIFC Rodeo Leader Board.  It was not meant to be yesterday.  But the Rodeo is far from over and the big flounder are starting to appear. 

Brandon said the flat fish are best caught on the in coming tide.  The baits of choice are, in order right now, pogies, most often found in front of the Ocean Isle Marina, and then mud minnows.  Captain Jacob of the OIFC has fantastic luck with Berkley Gulp artificials.

"King Fot The Day" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/11
 

Saturday Captains Chris Dew and Chris Eckert, two of our veteran Charter Captains took the Bob Davis crew on an 8 hr charter.  Their search for bait came up empty, so armed with pin fish and frozen cigar minnows they headed to the Jungle.  No one was at home.  They went to the Bill Perry Reef and caught sea bass after sea bass, which thanks to the U.S. Government they had to put back.  Thankfully this foolishness ends June 1st!!  After that they steamed to the 90's (steamed, old boat captains lingo).  Once there they hooked up with some teenager kings which the group elected to release.

The ocean was beautiful, and will only get better as time goes on which made for some great fishing and boating times.

"Best action spot" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/11
 

Best action yesterday from our charter fleet and other boaters sounded like the Horseshoe. Mix of Kings/Dolphin/Cobia. Pogies were at the hot hole off Yaupon. Kings are following their normal pattern where there is a good bite late April early May at Yaupon/Lighthouse Rocks area, and then they disappear for few weeks, and then re-appear at the Horseshoe/Jungle. With Kings showing yesterday at Horeshoe, they should show at Jungle any day[probably today].

One other observation: seems each year a "hot spot" emerges in early spring, and although it cools off as mentioned above, come Jolly Mon time, that same spot will heat back up and be the hot spot for the tourney. Not forecasting here, but history is history. This year that "hot" spot has been Lighthouse Rocks.

"Friday's Big Story" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/11
 

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.,
