Stan Hollingsworth boated this 68 lb monster cobia during the Jolly Mon.  Shame we didn't have a cobia division because a 51 lb. cobia was weighed at the OIFC.

"Jolly Mon Top 3" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/20/11
 

The weather made fishing a challenge.  However most participant accepted the challange.  Catching a king was very hard if not impossible for some anglers.  So finishing in the top was extra special.  Congratulation to the top anglers and to all to who fished.  The top 3 anglers were as follows:

Champion, D. Logan, Logan's Run, 23.60 lbs

2nd Cearly Hooked, 22.50 lbs.

3rd  Hot Rod,, Brett and Allen Barnes, 19.54

I probably made some mistakes.  If you find something like wrong picture or name, email me at rickey@oifc.com and I'll make corrections.

"Inshore Bite?" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/18/11
 

While many folks have geared up for the King Mackerel season, Capt. J-Dog and myself continue to pursue after the flounder. Capt. J-Dogg continues to find the flounder with 4 nice keepers caught yesterday. I on the other hand, could only find a hand full and muster up 2 keepers. Both I might add, came on the jig again.  I decided to try a few docks for redfish since my floundering skills were lacking. Joey was the first one to hook up! Nice! He managed to pull a nice 26" red drum from the pilings. We continued on to catch several redfish, most of them being just in the lower slot around 20".  That is what I love about saltwater. When one fish doesn't want to cooperate, another one usually will. Just hard to make that decision to move sometimes to make it happen. See ya on the water!

Bait? The bait continues to be small. Pogies are everywhere, but small. Mullet are everywhere, but small. Catching pinfish, croakers, and spots are the ticket if you are looking for larger bait. The artificials continue to produce a few fish in chartureuse and white colors. Don't forget the docks in the canals. Lots of bait in the canals, which usually means fish are hiding under the docks. Saw a little guy catch a nice one of the dock yesterday. Keep you posted! See ya on the water!

"Jolly Mon Results, Day One" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/18/11
 

There were several tired, haggard and wet anglers pulling up to the official Jolly Mon scales at the OIFC.  When the dust settled at 5:00 pm we were told unofficially that 112 boats fished today with only 18-20 weighing in fish.  Places 1-3 are:

1)  Logan's Run, 23.60#- D Logan

2)  Hot Ron, 19.54#- Brett and Allen Barnes

3)  Natural  18.50#- Stephen Hill

** The All In weighed in a 51# cobia

This reported will fish Sunday so a cub reporter will be subbing for me.  Good luck to all the Sunday fishermen.  Be safe, tight lines and bring in a big one.

This able bodied reporter will be fishing Sunday so a cub reported will substitute for me.

 

**Please understand that is report is not official, and may contain mistakes so don't call or send emails complaining that I got something wrong.--Thanks, Capt. Rickey

"Adjusting your Jolly Mon fishing plan for weather" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/17/11
 

The forecast being put out this morning is not what we hoped for, but as everyone knows, it changes constantly, so who knows what it will actually end up being come fish days. I went out to the beach this morning, and although wind is SW at 15kts, there is no swell, so conditions are only a short chop. It looked like approx 2 feet.

We all love to fish in flat conditions but when we don't have ideal, the trick is to adjust your plan to the conditions. In this case, with a SW wind, there are several strategies you can do that will work.

[1] heading north[east] up the beach will be in a following sea, so leaving out of any of our inlets[Little River/Shallotte/Lockwood] and heading toward Yaupon/Light House Rocks will not be that bad. Fishing these close in spots, you will have a little wind protection from the land on a SW wind, definitely better than say the Shark Hole/Jungle.

[2] getting out to a spot offshore like 90's/Jungle/Shark Hole is not a problem, just take it slow. Once there, anchor, chuming is a good strategy in a 15kt wind. Or drift downsea, crank your baits in, and start another drift.

[3] any of the spots on the north[east] side of Cape Fear shoals will be fairly calm on the beach, as the land protects that area from a SW wind. Spots like Carolina Beach Inlet will be perfect conditions. You can run down the intercoastal, across the Cape Fear to Snows Cut, and out Carolina Beach inlet, and completely avoid the SW wind. Additionally, the beach water should stay clear on that side of the shoals as it will be protected by the land. The tourney has been won at least twice at CArolina Beach Inlet, so definitely a good bet.

So the answer to the tourney game plan is adjust to the conditions. Somebody will win a whole bunch of money and my bet is it will occur within a 9 iron of the beach. Good luck to all.
