"One Old Man To Another" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/13/10
 

This ole' fishing reporter focused so hard on The Rumble In The Jungle that he forgot to acknowledge the accomplishments of his fellow Senior Angler and friends...Captain Rube and his son Captain Barrett McMullan.  While Brant was taking the lead in the SKA Division 9 at The Rumble, his dad Rube and brother Barrett were in a slug fest up the coast in Division 1.  They finished 3rd with a VERY RESPECTABLE 41.96 king in the  30th Annual Swansboro Rotary Club's KMT.  Rube took top honors as Senior Angler.  This was a great weekend for the entire OIFC "family".

Congratulations from one ole Captain to another.......

"US Open fishing report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/13/10
 

For everyone fishing US Open this week, here is kinda how things are looking. Weather is in summer pattern today, but 2 fronts approaching and wind will kick up SW in front of front. This is a bad wind for us as will stir up inshore water. After passes calls for strong W winds on Friday and NW15-20 on Saturday. The good news is the Kings somehow know our beaches are protected on a north wind, and thus they should move into close to beach, however the prior SW wind may have beach water stirred up.Friday will be a challenge unless wind moves a little more to NW from West. If stays West, may want to consider Carolina Beach inlet as they have some protection on a west wind. The  answer on Saturday should be Yaupon or close in portion of river channel[close to shoal marker] or just offshore of Ocean Crest pier. Look for clear water line, and that is where they should be.

Water has cleared up alot from rains, so hopefully it will not be messed up by SW wind. I think it will be ok, just may have to move mile or so off the beach.

Pogies are abundant up and down the beach.

Good luck to everyone, and check with us as our boats will be fishing this week and we'll see what happens with how the wind effect the fish. Most likely spots like 90/s/Jungle/Shark Hole/Lighthouse Rocks/ect will not be reachable due to winds, so looks like a beach tourney.

"Fall King Bite" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/13/10
 

Had the opportunity to do a little "fun" fishing yesterday aboard my boat, "Monkey Sea" with my new Brother-in-law, Matt Gleason and one of his close friends, Austin Bergman.  Weather forecast was calling for somewhat rough conditions so we headed down the ditch from Southport to Lockwood Folly and headed out that way. Found HUGE pogey's right outside the inlet, but soon realized that there was bait EVERYWHERE.  Rode a short distance towards Ocean Crest Pier and deployed the kite with 3 baits dangling.  Had 1 fish sky on the center bait but it missed the hooks.  I then watched 2 boats hookup and catch nice fish out of my chum slick and decided it was time to get moving.  A short time after starting the slow troll using Capt. Brant's Pro Rigged Kingfish rigs, we hooked and caught our first fish.  Just after putting that one in the fish box,  while putting the spread back out, fish number 2 exploded on the propwash bait, always a lot of fun to watch... By the time we had number 2 in the boat, my crew was tired from the rocking and rolling of the ocean so we took it to the hill. Folks, Fall fishing is in full swing.  We have all dealt with really slow fishing over the past 2 months.  Don't miss out on the action now that it is here.

"Capt. J. Dogg" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/13/10
 

Captain Jeff (J. Dogg Williamson ) of the Get Busy/OIFC had two days of in shore drum fishing with Phillip Hawkins and son-in-law Dean Storm of Lenoir.  Sounded like the guys had a productive trip fishing with mullet minnows around the docks on the ICW.  Look closely and you can see a sweet Contender and can tell exactly whose it is.  Hope you can get it off your lift Captain!  Blame it on Jeff!!

"Oink!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/12/10
 

Ok...Ok!!  Corny, I know.  But I need some way to introduce the 19.1 # Hog Nose Snapper "Shorty" brought by Monday for the OIFC crew to weigh in.  The snapper was taken by Jeff McDonald of the "Undertaker"  out of Holden Beach.  Shorty said Jeff got the fish around the Tower area.  He sorta smiled when he said that, so who knows and it's really impolite for me to ask.

Thanks Jeff and Shorty for giving the OIFC the privilege of weighing you fish.

While I'm on the Hog Nosed Snapper topic, Jeff Martini shot several this weekend while dinning, so I expect I know what will be on the fresh seafood menu at The MidTown Bistro in N .Myrtle Beach.

"Kings on the 90's" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/12/10
 

Friday,  James Wemyss fished the 90's using some 10-12 inch mullet.  He had some pretty hot action  between 11 am and 3 pm with 3 kings making it to the side of his boat, only to "come unbuttoned" before he could sink the gaff.  He also saw a few kings sky about 4 ft. in the air.  Three unfortunate kings made it to James' grill later in the evening via his cooler.  As James said "they made for an eventful day".

Many thanks to James and the other anglers who share their fishing stories with us.

""On the Fly"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/12/10
 

Mr. Joe wanted to catch a redfish on the fly rod. Talk about a challenge with all this bait in the water? We had a plan though...locate a school using live bait and then offer them a fly. We located a few schools yesterday, but they were having nothing to do with what we were selling on the fly rod. We pounded the schools with several differnent fly patterns, but could not fool them. We would throw a live mullet every now and then on our spinning tackle just to make sure the school had not moved on. Then we would offer them the fly again. Finally our arms gave out. Mr. Joe said the h#?! with this, lets have some fun. We put it to them with live mullet, until the 30 or so mullet minnows were gone. We had live little pogys in the live well. We gave them a try, but these fish were being picking today. We did pick one up on the pogy and another on a live shrimp, but they wanted mullet! Still an awesome day picking up 20+ redfish in the shallows. We ended on a beautiful note as we passed under the Ocean Isle Beach Bridge yesterday. See ya on the water!

Picked up this nice flounder right off my dock this afternoon. It made me start difting my canal and on out around the docks. I picked up a couple of redfish along the docks on the intercoastal as well. Mullet! Live mullet! The water is chop full of these guys and the game fish are keying in on them right now. See ya on the water!

"OUCH!!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/11/10
 

A good reason to keep a pair  of pliers with side cutters on board.  Keith fished the Rumble in the Jungle ALL DAY with this in his hand.  I'd be screaming like a baby.  This man is one tuff dude!

"Black Dog's Wahoo" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/10/10
 

Here's a picture of a great wahoo caught with a black/purple "pirate plug" rigged by Andrew Sanderson and deployed off shore of the 100/400 in 81 degree, beautiful water.

In the picture is Casy Johnson, the angler, Molly Garber, Ned Garber and Andrew Sanderson while fishing with Bob Newell aboard Bob's Black Dog.  This is one of two wahoo the crew hooked up with, but the only one boated.  They also caught black fin tuna which made a great sushi and wasabi tray.

"Rumble" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/09/10
 

The Rumble In The Jungle was today.  Participants found plenty of pogeys right around the Cherry Grove Pier.  The seas were great as was the weather.  Fishermen I talked to fished from the Atlantic Ledge to the Hammer in search of the winning king.. 

There were a lot of kings weighed mostly in the mid twenties to low teens.  At last report Brant was in 4th with a 30+ king.  We caught our fish at the Hammer with just enough time to make it to the scales.  I think this weather is supposed to hold and will make for great fishing.

The U.S. Open is next weekend and the Fall Brawl is the following weekend.  As the month wears on the king bite should be getting hotter than it is now.

""Golden Sunrise"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/08/10
 

Yesterday Martin Mcleod stopped by to show off his gulf stream catch. Martin's crew weighed a citation wahoo and a blackfin tuna that was just shy of the mark. If you are sitting out the Rumble in the Jungle king tournament, now would be the time to go deep. Sunday is suppose to be a flat sea all the way to the canyon!

Fished a few hours this morning with a great couple from Columbia, SC. We were greeted by an unexpected brisk NE breeze this morning. The sunrise was awesome this morning and things warmed up pretty quick. We moved around a lot trying to find a hungry fish. Not too many of those around...we caught a few here and a few there. The ones we caught were not hungry, their bellies were already full! The fish are definitely feeding hard right now. Just have to keep moving until you find them. We would move to a spot catch three with in a half dozen cast and then they would just quit. Move again and catch a few more. We ended the day with a couple of nice keepers for the frying pan. See ya on the water!

"Grouper and More" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/08/10
 

Our Cat boat chartered a group yesterday and caught a "boat load" of grouper.  Unfortunately they were all undersized and were released.  (Boat load is an angler's unit of measurement, meaning a lot.  Not an actual "boat load").  Below are a couple of pictures of Brandon Sauls and Nesbitt Noble with a couple they caught just before the "big rain".  Some friends are diving and bottom fish shooting this weekend so I hope to have their report.  Might I suggest Midtown Bistro on 17 N. Myrtle Beach for frest seafood?

Yesterday several boats went blue fish huntin'.  There were a lot caught, but they were sparse.  Some pogeys were spotted flipping in about 35 ft. of water.  The ocean was beautiful with a distinct tide line at the inlets.  It ought to be nice this weekend for the Rumble In The Jungle and just plain ole fun fishing.  Also below are some pictures of the sea I took yesterday.  There are still a lot of people red drum fishing at the Little River Jetties.

"Sawmills Dollar's Kings" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/07/10
 

Below are some great pictures from a weekend trip this past Friday and Saturday taken aboard Captain C.C. Anderson's "Sawmil lDollars"  based out Mocksville, N.C..

The pictures are of Jeff Bowden holding "the magic bait"  he used to catch the kings.  Captain Anderson, Brian Custard and Doug Illing are holding their 3  big kings.  Captain Anderson and Doug Illing are holding the red drum they caught at the Jetties.  The guys said it was too bad for them  the U. S. Open wasn't held last weekend.

Thanks for sharing your pictures with everyone.

Also, Captain Jeff Beck and I went on a bait catching mission and caught several blues near shore just off OIB.  We saw gulls and pelicans diving, but didn't see any pogys.  There was a distinct tide line at about 30 ft. of water.  We'll be at it again in preparation for the Rumble In The Jungle.  The OIFC will be set up at the Rumble with some pretty cool stuff going on.
