"Why not during the Capr Fear Classic?" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/21/11
 

Jim Taylor of Holden Beach fishes aboard his boat the "Reel Action".  On this day he had the unforgettable experience of fishing with his dad, 61 yr.old James Taylor, who has always dreamed of catching a sail fish.  He was also privileged to have his brother Johnathan and a few other friends.

The crew of the Reel Action fished north of the shoals and east of Wrightsville Beach.  They departed Masonboro Inlet @5 am and put out lines some 20+ miles out.  In short order they had 2 gaffer mahi and a couple of peanuts aboard.  They also had 2 sails show up in their spread and devour about $25 worth of balleyhoo before they picked up lines and moved on.

The Reel Action found bait over a hard bottom and put lines out, circling the bait.Then both outriggers popped at the same time.  Jim grabbed the TLD 25 and his dad grabbed the TLD 15 with 20# test that would go on to catch a 65+/-# sail fish.  While they were getting set to fight, a 3rd line on an outrigger went off and sail fish #3 was on.

They successfully landed 3 sail fish and kept them long enough for pictures then released them safe and sound.

The crew went on to land a 28 # king, a barracuda some spanish and saw some leatherback turtles prior to returning to the dock at 5 pm.

"Horseshoe" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/21/11
 

Bob Newell, the director of the Cape Fear Sail Fish Classic went fishing for sail fish at the Horse Shoe aboard the "Black Dog".  Along with Bob were Liz Newell and Niles Harrell.  They were fishing ballyhoo with circle hooks.  Liz landed her 1s wahoo, pictured below and Miles released a citation sail fish.  Based on recent reports there are plenty of sails in our area.

Also pictured is OIFC Dock Master Mitch Stephens with a combo Capt. Jeff Williamson caught at an off shore reef.  I'm ashamed to admit that I lost one out there a couple of summers ago while trying to scoop jelly balls.  Wouldn't it be funny it that was it!!

"Blue water to Back water" | Get Busy | 08/21/11
 

How do you convince a blue water fisherman to convert over to the shallows of the near shore waters. Put him on a hot big flounder bite on light tackle. Capt. Chris Burrows and I took a ride to the east side today to do some wreck searching. I can't give away all the details but it was a blast. I did make note of the spots in the spring kickoff siminars. Where you paying attention? Carolina Beach was loaded with 6 to 8 inch mullets. We filled the live well and the Get Busy , Got Busy..

Charlie tassel and James Freeman of Monroe,NC caught three 30-35 pound wahoo at the blackjack yesterday. Charlie reported that the two man crew was kep t very busy all day from constant bites; reporting a dozen or more solid bites. This is great news and good reason to dust off the stream trolling rigs and gear- fall wahoo season can be world class. Capt. Brant McMullan

What a great week to be on the water of coastal Brunswick Co. Cooler temps, light  winds, Oh yeah and fish biting. From the near shore reefs the the inlets and creeks. Flounder, Red Drum, Black Drum, Speckle Trout and even an inshore  cobia. The inshore bite is on despite the 82 -86  degree water temps. Mullet minnows and large white shrimp have been the baits producing very nice catches for the folks on the Get Busy Fishing boat.

Angler Paul Pancake reported that he took a couple of trips to the deep water this week with some fellow fishermen  and caught some wahoo and mahi.  On the 1st trip they caught a wahoo in 400+ ft of water and on the 2nd trip they caught one in 390 ft.  The 2nd trip saw rough seas, but did produce 2 mahi.  Paul said the hot color was red and white.

In the pics are Paul, Austin Keener, and Billy Berg.

"Scattered Inshore Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 08/18/11
 

I have only gotten out twice this week with the McRae group on Monday morning and the Miniuitti group this morning. Monday we headed straight for the nearshore reefs looking for flounder. We could not get baits to the bottom before the black sea bass were inhaling it! We drifted, moved, and hit many different spots. Finally, Stuart drilled a nice 21" flounder and his buddy Richard followed it up with a nice 18" flounder. That was it for our flounder bite. We did fight a 4 foot shark all the way to the boat for a quick release at boatside. It was time for plan B...Spanish are scattered all along the beach front right now. It did not take long for us to catch a few to end the day with some good eating.

Today with Michelle, Wes, and Jack we made a few stops before heading out the inlet. Jack was first to hook up with a nice red! Jack fought him all the way to the boat before the fish released itself just out of reach of my net. Disappointing...but will Jack get another chance to redeem himself? Wes was up next, rod bent over and he went to work. Meanwhile, Jack's rod bent over and another fish was screaming off drag. I love it! I netted Wes's fish first and then scooped up Jack's redfish. Way to stay with it Jack! Both boys enjoyed it greatly, but were eager to see the ocean and catch a few spanish. We got on the spanish just past the sea bouy. Wes and Jack wanted to catch a shark, so we went to bottom fishing. The bottom was dead today! We did see a barracuda eat a bluefish and a large, very large hammerhead. Winds look great again for tomorrow, hope the fish got the memo. See ya on the water!

What a wahoo!!!  Yesterday Steve Ritenhour took Joel Martin and his two sons, John, age 7 and Joseph, age 8 for their 1st off shore trip aboard Steve's 26 ft. Triton "Seaclusion".  They caught the whaoo in the picture as well as a mahi 26 miles out in 80 ft. of clear water which was full of bait..  They caught the wahoo in the prop wash on a king rig with a cigar minnow and the fight was on!

"Kristen's 2 1/2 Flounder" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/18/11
 

Kristen Love out fished everyone last weekend with her 2 and 1/2 flounder.  She caught a 17.5" and a 20" Sunday at the Caudle Reef and the 1/2 flounder was caught at the Youpon Reef on Friday.  Jamie Blue estimated the half of the flounder that made it to the boat would have been 5 or 6lbs before some creature made it his lunch.

"The Hardee Boyz" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/17/11
 

Captain Corey Bellamy  (Beck's Seafood in Calabash) and Kurt Hardee (Ellas's Seafood in Calabash) took Luke and Calab Hardee, Kurt's boys, and Jacob Frelich, (Corey's nephew, Kurt's sister's son..it's a Brunswick County, N.C. thang )sea bass fishing today on what was supposed to be beautiful calm seas.  The east wind changed all that though.

They dropped lines with Charlie Browns, aka Lizard fish as bait.  The current was terrible and they ended up catching mahi instead...and a sea bass.  Luke Hardee was the angler on the mahi. The crew was fishing 65 ft deep near the Jungle.

P.S. Luke. That mahi will never make it in the swimming pool unless you add some Pogey Saver.

Thanks Corey for sharing the story and congratulations to the guys on a great trip!

"Post cold front fishing" | Get Busy | 08/15/11
 

If you were lucky enough to be on the water this morning,how nice was that? The sun came up to calm seas, 64 degrees and NO wind. The nearshore bite was slow to start but keeping focused and placing baits in produtive areas paid off for Greg, Ethan and Jake Whitman. The same held true For John of Marrieta Ga. nearshore bite just did not happen just a few short flounder. The falling tide at the usual spots paid off with Red and Black  Drum. Still an awesome day in S.E. Brunswick Co.
