"Teacher's Pet" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/22/10
 

Captain Jeff Wiliamson reported that he had a blast fishing with Mat and Ashley Abernathy , school teachers from High Point out on summer break and vacationing at OIB.  They caught some over sized South Carolina red fish and 2 hand fulls of Tubbs Inlet flounder.  If you want to catch fish in shore or off shore, Captain Jeff is the one to hook up with.  Even if you don't catch much you will definitely have fun!!!

"Gray Goose" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/22/10
 

Miss Virginia Beckham sent me this picture of a couple of mahi  caught a couple of days ago while fishing with her dad Henry, and friends Tommy and Jennifer Gray, as well as Jennifer's boyfriend Josh aboard the Gray Goose out of OIB.

Henry and Virginia are mostly known for their inshore fishing, but as can be seen they have skills offshore as well.  Folks may remember Virgina from when she worked at the OIFC last summer.

Also pictured is a sail fish the crew of the Gray Goose landed.  Virginia said the sail swam happily away after Henry put it back in the water....you've got to know Virginia to love her like we do.

"Jolly Mon Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/21/10
 

Congratulations to all of you who made the leaderboard. An impressive field of 306 boats competed for this year's right to stand on the stage and hold the first place trophy and check. That is a lot of boats and making the leader board in any position is an accomplishment. First place honors this year go to Jeff Beck, father Rickey Beck, John Hayes and Timmy Clemmons aboard the Ocean Isle Beach based Do Work fishing team. The team weighed a 33.65 pound King they caught Sunday just after noon while fishing near the Cape Fear sea buoy. The King reportedly hit a double Pogy in the propwash. There will be more to come with a report on the entire weekend's events. For now to get all results in all divisions- CLICK HERE

"Jolly Mon " | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/21/10
 

Another Jolly Mon is in the books.  307 boats competed in the event and we were blessed withe great weather for the Tournament.  The staff of the OIFC put on quite an event.  The food served by Guy C. Lee and Captain Amy was excellent.

Team "Do Work", fishing out of Ocean Isle was the winner.  The team consisting of Captain Jeff Beck, Timmy Clemmons, Jon Hayes and myself were the victors.  They also won a TWT, I was was awarded 1st place in the Senior Division.

The winning fish was caught in the river channel, using live pogies on a double pogey rig.  Jon Haves was the angler and fought the king fow about 45 minutes.  Jeff was the coach,  gaffer and planner..

The Do Work team won in the neighborhood of $22,000.  Winning the money is great of course.  The prestige of winning the Jolly Mon as as important.  Winning the Jolly Mon while fishing with my son on Father's Day was most important.

Thanks to Captain Brant, the OIFC, all the sponsors, fishermen and all the people who followed the tournament.

I would like to announce that I have been granted exclusive rights to interview myself later this week.  This will not be a softball interview, I am preparing some hard hitting questions to ask myself and I expect some truthful answers from me.

"Spanish vs. King" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/20/10
 

If the Kings were only the same quality as the Spanish have been this year...we would have seen some monster Kings weighed in at the Jolly Mon...Oh wait! We did! Capt. Jeff Beck and crew represented the OIFC in fashion with a 33.65 lb. taking first place and top bragging rights until next year. Congratulations! Below are some Spanish that have been holding on the tide lines outside the Shalloute inlet. I suspect some nice Kings are near this area as well. Just haven't pulled the right bait in front of them yet. Work'n on it though...See ya on the water!

Day one of the Jolly Mon weigh-in is in the history books and is on it's way to the Brunswick County Library for safe keeping.  There were about 207 boats fishing today.  The heaviest fish so far is 31.60 lbs. 

Come join us Sunday for the weigh-in and later for a great meal, once again prepared by the Jolly Mon staff, and then the awards banquet.  I've included all of the random pictures I took today.  If you see a picture you like and would like for me to email it to you, send us a email with a brief description of the picture and we'll be happy to send it to you.

A big thank you from the OIFC for participating in and enjoying the Jolly Mon.

"Jolly Mon Fishing Report" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/18/10
 

There were A LOT of boats fishing today and they were catching fish at A  LOT of locations.  Most of the boats I saw and heard were catching a fair amount of kings and small mahi.  The biggest king caught in the Jr. Jolly Mon weighed 24+ lbs.

There is no secrete location where the fish are holding...the 90's, Christina's, 70 ft Hole, the Jungle...you name all the standard king fish locations and you'll find some kings at each location.

Here's a couple of pictures of 2 Jr. Jolly Mon participants in action.

OK- its 9:40pm.  All is finally quiet.  Jolly Mon and staff would like to thank all the participants.  302 boat entries to this point.  Registration remains open until 11:59pm this evening.  According to preliminary numbers, approximately 75 entered the high rollers TWT and 70 entered -23 TWT.  210 entered the regular TWT.  Looks like roughly 2/3 of the field has chosen to fish Saturday.  However, remember that you can change your declaration day as late as 7am -- call 910 253 3474 to declare or change declaration.

Thanks to all and stay tuned to weigh-in updates and reports.  Good luck to all.

"Jolly Mon recon report" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/17/10
 

I made a Jolly Mon recon run yesterday morning and here is what I saw.

On the beach:

-Big school of small bluefish in Shallotte Inlet, being fed on by Spanish

-Big schools of greenies in approx 25 feet[being fed on by Spanish]

-Big schools of butterfish in approx 25 feet[being fed on by Spanish

-water color on beach perfect "king green"

HMMM.......SO, WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU?

Offshore:

-big schools of cigar minnows betweeen Jungle and Christina

-water color clear to king green

-water full of spanish and very small kings

HMMM...WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU?

Answer: They can be anywhere. Only thing missing is the pogies which I understand are holding in Cape Fear River. This could be a dead bait tourney if they don't mysterioulsy show up which seems to happen just when you give up on them showing[pogy bobbin may be with pinfish this year]. Or this may be year of non tradional baits[whiting/spots/dogfish/grunts/ect, whatever you can jig up].  Somebody will get lucky and catch the big one and win a whole bunch of money. Come join us at the Jolly Mon!
