Monday we caught a handfull of small flounder with no keepers.
Tuesday we headed for the river and had three short flounder to the boat. Capt. Jeff Williamson gave me a call. He reported that he was on the fish. He invited me to head his way. I asked my crew if they wanted to chase a bite. They said, "willing to go anywhere to catch the fish". We headed Capt. Jeff's way. Good call! Mr. Morris and crew landed some nice flounder! We ended the day with 8 fat keepers! Pictures below.
Wednesday was also just a handfull of short flounder with just one or two keepers.
Thursday...Well, first cast was a nice 17" flounder...and it was all downhill from there. My engine was experiencing some technical difficulties. We continued to fish in close proximity of our first area and landed several small flounder. We even had a spanish mackerel on the line for a few seconds. I finally called Sea Tow and while we waited caught a few more small flounder. Thanks to all who fished with me this week! A special thanks goes to Capt. Charlie Wilson for the tow. Even more importantly, a big thanks goes to Capt. Jeff Williamson for putting us on the bite Tuesday! See ya on the water!
Friday...Boat fixed. Oil sensor giving a false alarm. You got to love boat ownership. Will be fishing Monday and Tuesday this coming week. Hope to have more to report this coming week. Stay tuned....
Captain Steele and Eckert were joined by the Luke and Becca Lucey, the Smiths, Becca, Tanner, Taylor, Van from Greensboro, NC and Greg Camachao of Colorado. They fished in 105 ft of 80 degree water using pogies and squid. Van landed the Jack and most everyone else caught a mahi.
Steele reported the pogies were thick off the beach, although they were small.
The title is "Shark Hunter". Those of us who fish know our waters has it's fair share, plus, of sharks. Shark Week on The Discovery Channel is upon us but there's no reason to become a couch potato and just watch it on TV. You can charter with the OIFC and be a part of the Shark Week action like these folks from mid-west N. Carolina did.
Will you ever go back in the water again?!!! Come shark fishing with us then make your decision.
***The gaff in the pics was used solely to remove the hooks. There are a select few species of shark that are eatable. So far our customers have decided to enjoy the fight and release their sharks to fight another battle.
The Myers family from Raleigh, N.C. joined Captain Chris Dew and Captain Zach Faulkner today on a near shore trip. The ladies spoke like they had a great time. The queen for the day was Olivia Carlino, pictured with her catch and release shark.
Captain Chris said the pogies were thick from Little River to the Shallotte Inlet in @ 30 ft. of water depth. He also said the water temp. in the ICW was 89 degrees and 87 near shore. Sharks, 87 degree water? Anyone care for a refreshing dip?
PLEASE look at thevideo of a day of fishing with Captain Jeff Williamson of the OIFC/Get Busy.
If this doesn't make you want to take your grand kids or kids nothing will!!
We have room for 2 more giant tuna hunters on the Prince Edward Island, Canada giant tuna trip. The dates are September 10-13. The cost is $1000 and includes 2 days fishing, accommodations, and ground transportation. This will be a great late summer escape to cool weather and hopefully lots of giant bluefin tuna. Email email@example.com if you'd like to get on board.

A couple of days ago, Captain Jeff Williamson charter fished with Spencer Brown, Scott Browder, and Carl Horn of Charlotte, N.C. This was the 1st time the guys had fished with J. Dogg. They caught 3 keeper red drum, several throw back flounder as well as a plethora of other ichthyoid creatures.
The picture and info is by OIFC cub reporter and birthday girl Katelyn Kinser. The poor quality is not fault of the cub reporter. The gaff cam spent too much time underwater and fogged up. My apologies to the guys.
Captain Jeff put the smack down on the flounder today at an artificial reef just off shore using live shrimp. The bite was so hot that Capt. Jacob and his charter got in on the action.
Accompanying Capt. Jeff were Dereck Register, Ted Register, Luke Logan and Ken Haney. It would appear the near shore flounder bite is heating up!
The pics and dock report are by OIFC Cub Dock Reporter Katy Bartholomew.
Hooked up with a shark off ocean crest that we had to run down. Check in later for pictures when we land it.??
