Several of us will be in Raleigh at a fishing products show Friday 1-14-11.  The OIFC will be open as usual.

"Ice And Other Stuff" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/11/11
 

There is absolutely nothing to report on except ICE.  That says it all!  Brant and Steele have been busy rearranging the tackle area of the OIFC,  I've been working on finalizing Rodeo stuff and getting the fuel reports (for gas tax) ready to be mailed out. 

I gave Jeff and myself a Dubro Wire Twist Tool which makes twisting haywire twists quick, easy and perfect.  You can special order one through the OIFC.  Jeff has tied enough rigs to last us most of the season.

Below are a couple of pictures I took Sunday of progress at the OIB boat ramp parking lot.

The OIFC Year Round Rodeo trophies have arrived.  The prize money checks will be ready next week.  This will wind up the 2010 edition of the Rodeo.  The competition was intense and fun..just the way it ought to be.  Congratulations to the winners and everyone who made the Rodeo a success.  We're looking forward to the kick off for the 2011 Rodeo season.  I wonder who picked that trophy for the Fishing Report picture?

"OIB Boat Ramp Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/06/11
 

The boat ramp itself is still open.  The parking lot is closed while it is expanded.  The good news is the private parking area as you turn in the service road to the boat ramp is open.  The manager said users of the boat ramp may park there for a "small donation".  There is a donation box at the front of the parking lot.

"OIB Boat Ramp" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/05/11
 

Don't let the signs completely through you off.  The parking lot is closed..which is obvious if you'd see the construction.  But, the ramp is open and operational!  I'm not sure about the parking, but last year there was parking in the lot next to Sheffield's.  You had to put $5 in the honor system box.  I'm not sure that's still in operation, but will follow up.

"OIFC Getting Prepped for 2011- NOW HIRIING" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/05/11
 

We've started our work resetting the store, buying new product and getting things in order.  In between occasionally breaking away for a Sea Bass, Bluefin, King Mackerel trip.

As part of 2011 preparations we are now taking job applications for the Spring and Summer season.  If you have interest in joing the OIFC team for the 2011 season, please email info@oifc.com requesting a job application.  The OIFC is looking for a few good men/women.  Come join us!

The Sea Bass are thick as fleas once you get past 90 feet of water.  Inside of that are alot of Sharks.  The King bite was good southwest of the Tower in 100 feet a couple of days ago.  Look for 66+ degree water and bait.  The Bluefin are always a wild card.  They have not been caught, but you never know what you will see if you are out.  Take a couple of Bluefin worthy outfits on any offshore trip just in case you see the "Bluefin buring bush".  Stay tuned

""Finally in on the Action"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/04/11
 

My boat has been out of the water for maintenance, but not anymore. The redfish bite has been hot despite extremely cold water. I have been surpised by all the reports of people catching redfish in such cold water. Our last two winters here have been brutal! To say the least, I have been chopping at the bit to get my boat back in the water. We finally got her in the water this past Friday and fished high tide. High tide is not the best time to catch fish this time of year. I looked ahead and picked Tuesday for my next day of fishing. The tides looked right. The weather could not have been more pleasant today as well. Pelicans have been diving on bait in front of the OIFC, and looks like some menhaden are hanging in there. I could not net any despite pelicans catching plenty. I fished several places as the tide pulled out of the creeks with little success. As the water went slack I moved into the canals and started to pick away at the docks. I landed three rat reds right in front of the OIFC. The water started to rise, so I gave another spot a quick try. Bingo! A 26 inch brute slammed a gulp pogy! Winter fishing at its best. Live mud minnows on a jighead work great this time of year as well. I have heard a few reports of trout and redfish around the Lockwood Folly area being caught with them. Little river area is also producing lots of fish. See ya on the water!

"Stick Slinger's Sea Bass" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/02/11
 

Jim Bowen and John Currin went Sea Bass fishing aboard Jim's 26 ft. Sea Hunt the Stick Slinger.  They fished some numbers provided by Capt. Chris Dawson in about 90 ft. deep water.  They started out using squid and were hooking up, sometimes 3 at a time.  After a bit, they switched to Roscoe Jigs and butterfly jigs.  Jim said the Roscoe out fished the butterfly 3 to 1 and increased the size of the fish as well.  Jim reported they started fishing at 8 am and had limited by 10 am.  He raved about the success he had with the Roscoe Jig.

Thanks for the report and the pictures Jim.

""New Year Drum"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/01/11
 

Inshore fishing continues to be strong despite extreme cold weather for us this time of year. Lots of reports from Little River to the Cape Fear River have been saying the same thing. Redfish are biting and biting hard! Everyday someone is catching a good one. I wish it were me! John Taylor from Fayetteville, NC was bound and determine that he was going to catch one today. Pictured below is his best fish of the day, a 23" fat Red!  Mr. Taylor said he also landed two more that were 21 inches. You can bet I will be after them hardcore this week. See ya on the water!

Oh, What are they biting on? Gulp baits on the bottom or under a popping cork has been pretty productive. Live mud minnows on a 1/8 to 1/4 ounce jighead will work really good this time of year. Where? Dead water, shallow, really shallow...Good Luck!

"Happy New Year!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/01/11
 

Captain Jeff Williamson finished 2010 with a charter aboard the "Get Busy".  Captain Jeff was chartered by the Casey family from Maryland.  Jill Casey caught her first red drum as shown in the pictures.  Jeff mostly fished the concrete canals on Ocean Isle Beach in the afternoon.  The water was extremely clear and the temps were @ 48 degrees.  The Casey's said being on the water in 60 degrees sure beat shoveling snow in Maryland!

There is a rare picture of the camera shy Captain Jeff in one of the pictures.
