"Today's Bluefin report" | OIFC | 12/18/15
 

It was a little windy but two boats fished and three fish were hooked up. The first two pulled the hooks and the third was lost at boat side by Austin Eubank of the Clearly Hooked; a heart breaker he said. He reported the fish was big, at least over 90" but broke the line when it made a last second dash and hit the props. Austin reports that all th bites were from the Knuckle and back to the west some 5 miles. He did report Gannets working. Also a couple of Bluefin were landed out of Morehead. One of them was 104" and cored at 675 pounds! That's no head or tail which means it was near 800 pounds. And to think it was 9" shorter than the fish landed down here yesterday but over 100 pounds heavier! A butter ball! This is really getting real now! So exciting. It is reminding me of back around 07' with the excitement and anticipation. The OIFC took delivery of bait this AM so we are in good supply of Horse Ballyhoo. Also we got commercial tags and a chill tank set up so fish can be off loaded here for pick up from the dealer. I am trying to get recreational tags from NC Marine Fisheries but they have not called me back. Looks like next weather window will be maybe Saturday and most likely Sunday Capt. Brant McMullan

Remember free Bluefin "how to" seminar at OIFC this Saturday from 11-1. Catching these fish is not rocket science, but you must know the rigging tackle needs or you will get hooked up, spend hours in a fight, and in the end, get your butt whipped as he swims away. It's all about the rigging.

Capt. Nelson Applegate 12/18/2015

We had that conversation 3 years ago. When you bill a sailfish, You are inflicting damage to the brain. The nerves from the brain are connected to the bill. This was explained to me many years ago by John Jolley. Please take extra care at the boat. It is senseless to use circle hooks and then kill the fish for a picture. Captain Nelson Applegate





"First Bluefin Tuna of the Season" | OIFC | 12/16/15
 

FIRST BLUEFIN TUNA OF YEAR LANDED

Congratulations to John Dosier of Oak Island Fishing Charters for landing the season's first Giant Bluefin Tuna off of Brunswick County.  John hooked up this morning around 7:30am while fishing near the Knuckle Buoy off the Frying Pan Shoals. He and partner fought the fish for 3 hours before subduing it.  And this was no average Bluefin;their Bluefin reached an awesome 113 long and is between 800-900 pounds.  This is the largest Bluefin ever landed in the county.

What Does This Mean?

It is time to go fishing!  Very few fishermen ever get the chance to do battle with such monsters, and here they are being caught less than 15 miles off of our coast.  This is no different than you see on the "Wicked Tuna" TV show, except this is unedited and REAL!

OIFC TO HOST HOW-TO BLUEFIN SEMINAR / Q & A- SATURDAY 11am-1pm

Capt. Barrett McMullan will be at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center on Saturday from 11am-1pm to answer questions and give advice on what you need and how to land one of these giant Bluefin Tuna.  Capt. Barrett helped pioneer the small-boat, stand-up Bluefin fishery off the Carolinas and is willing to share his knowledge to help you get hooked up.

The OIFC has all the Tackle, Gear, Rigging and Bait you will need to catch a Bluefin Tuna.  This seminar is 100% FREE.  AND if you PRINT THIS EMAIL and bring to Ocean Isle Fish Company
restaurant on Saturday, you will receive 10% off your meal.

See you at the OIFC!

"Reel McCoy's Smackdowwn!" | Do Work / OIFC | 12/14/15
 

~~"Reel McCoy Wahoo Smack Down". Daniel Simmons, Brian Robbins and Bryan Freeman ran out to the 100/400 Saturday morning on the Reel McCoy and found good suspended bait marks in 160 feet of water and hungry wahoos galore.  When the dust settled our 12 wahoos weighed in at just under our 500 lb commercial limit.  We had a couple gaffer dolphin in the mix as well.  We ran back out Sunday morning and while the bite for us wasn't as red hot and the weather was rainy nasty, it was still good fishing with 6 more really big wahoos in the box and headed back to the hill by noon.  Great fishing out there right now.

Thx for the report Daniel!!

"Wahoo report" | | 12/14/15
 

Brayden and I snuck out yesterday with David Allison and John Holmes and went 4 for 6 on 40-45lb wahoo at 100/400. The bite wasn't as strong as the day before but that may have been due to the 15-20kt winds that made trolling a bit tough. Still incredibly good wahoo fishing and in December none the less. Capt. Brant McMullan

Stan and Austin were awesome! Thank you guys for a memorable day, even though it rained the last two hours of our 8 hour trip, it still was fun and the fish are wet anyway! LOL Thanks again OIFC for always making a lasting impression!

The crew of The Retriever caught  the wahoo in the picture which are in the 40# range.  All were caught before 11 at the 100/400 on ballyhoo in 155ft of water.  Made for a short day!

Thanks for sharing the report.  Thanks everyone for sharing your pictures and reports!

"Re: Fish Reports For Tuesday" | | 12/13/15
 

Wahoo bite is as good as it's been any time- average fish are 40 pounds with many over 50. Recently the hottest bite has been from the 100/400 to the Black Jack hole. The water is still really warm at 78+ degrees. The Kings too are liking the warm water as they are still within 20 miles of shore, which is much closer than normal for the time of year. And finally the big news is that we are seeing Bluefin Tuna. Although one has not been landed from this area yet, they have been hooked. It will be very soon. For the first time in 5 years in going to set up the block and tackle hoist on the OIFC docks- we are ready! Capt.

This is a picture from Toby Russ of Mr. Goodhands.  As Toby attested to the bite was good today.  They had a 59 lb and a 33 lb wahoo and Toby said they lost at least 6 more.

And I was home not feeling good :(
