On this beautiful Wednesday, Todd Helf, Robert Hughes and Brian Richard fished in 90-120 feet of water.  As you can see they caught several 30-40 lb AJ's and Todd landed this American Snapper.

"Brunswick Co. Bluegills" | OIFC 1- 36' | 08/05/10
 

Captain Tommy Helms sent us there pictures today.  He said they were a mess of Brunswick County Bluegills (spade fish) with a side of flounder....that's Tommy!

I haven't seen or got reports on any jelly balls, but there have been a lot of people stung by jelly fish in the past couple of weeks.  Be careful.

"Cobia on a Sabiki?" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/03/10
 

Stranger things have happened in the world of off shore fishing.  The cobia hitting a sabiki rig wasn't exactly what happened.  The crew of the OIFC Cat was jigging for bait and a cobia came up to the sabiki to check things out.  He in fact brought along his big brother.  I guess big brother got  big by not being dumb.  The nosey one ended up on the OIFC cleaning table.

The crew, Marc Tebben (Dayton, OH.), Jason Tebben (Charlotte, N.C.), Ed Conder (Charlotte, N.C.) and Joe Gliemmo (Columbus, OH.), spent their day fishing the Jungle and the Barges in search of kings.  Though you could have closed your eyes and seen as many kings as they did, the group enjoyed a smooth day on the ocean catching spanish mackerel.  All in all they had a good day, a great time and said they'd be back next year.

Oh, yeah, Joe was the lucky one who landed the cobia.

"Inshore Report" | Speckulator - 22' | 08/02/10
 

July has come and gone, and now we find ourselves in the midst of August, which usually doesnt mean the hottest inshore fishing of the year.  However, we have been hanging in there and catching some fishing throughout all of the hot weather and hot water.  I've have probably spent more time refishing recently than anything else, and we have been rewarded with some good catches of reds along with a few bonus flounder thrown in from the same spots.  On the flounder front, ther are certainly still some fish hanging around in the backwaters, but it seems that a lot of fish may have made the push to deeper water, and it wouldnt surprise me to see some big catches off some of the nearshore ARs soon.  The trout have also made somewhat of a showing this past week, and which they are still somewahat scattered and hard to predict, they are certainly around, so you never know when a gator might show up.

""Doctor's Orders"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/02/10
 

This past weekend the Doctor was out on the water looking for gators. The Doctor succeeded in finding a few. Two trout weighing over 4 lbs. and another over 5 lbs. This puts him in first place on the rodeo board knocking many of the local legends off the board all together. Talk about crushing bones...looks like somebody may be looking for a new name by the end of the season. Doctor says take two and add a third for good measure! See ya on the water!

".05 lbs" | OIFC 1- 36' | 08/01/10
 

There has been a change in the standings in the speckled trout division.  Jeff Wallen weighed in a 4.35 lb'r yesterday.  This moved Branon "Bone Crusher" Sauls to 3rd and Knocked Captain Kyle Hughes off the board.

No more than I got this report posted Dr. Wallen weighed a 5.8 lb trout  to knock Clay to 2nd  By virtue of the rule which says only the biggest fish caught by a competitor can stay on the board, Brandon Sauls retains his 3rd place. How long are you going to take this abuse Brandon.  Dr. Jeff is making you look bad.  If a competitor could weigh in more than 1 fish in each division, Jeff would have 1st, 2nd and 3rd!

"Cape Fear Sailfish Classic" | OIFC 1- 36' | 08/01/10
 

The perpetual trophy for the Cape Fear Sailfish Classic has been completed and is at Ocean Isle.  At this time no decision has been made as to where it will be displayed.  The picture of it is below.  

A couple of other things to be mentioned.  Anyone who catches and releases a sailfish is eligible for a citation..not the type requiring you to pay a fine, but one you hang on the wall.  The OIFC is a certified location for citations and for weighing fish.  The OIFC has Eagle Claw 7/0 thin wire circle hooks for sailfishing in stock.  And  you can find the picture of Mrs. Amber Simmons' sailfish in the current Fishermans' Post.  We also have those at the OIFC.

"Drum Roll!!!" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/31/10
 

Captain Jeff Williamson of the OIFC/Get Busy got on a roll with the red drum yesterday at some near artifical shore reefs.  Jeff took Andrew Salmaso and Randy Dobel, of Canada for little in shore/near shore action and they definitely found it.  These well thought out picture angles tell you about  as much as I know about the location.  Maybe we can tell more by the angle of the sun, because Jeff sure ain't coming of anymore information.

The guys from north of the border did a great job eh?

****Of course these beautiful drum were released.

"Garrett's 1st Sail" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/30/10
 

Another sailfish  to report just in time for the Cape Fear Sailfish Classic!

Garrett Williams and his dad Keith were joined by friends Brent Elliott and his son Matt aboard Keith's beautiful 31 ft. Cape Horn the O-Sea-D on what Keith described as a beautiful day at the 90's.  He said the bait was so thick you could walk on it.

The result was a couple of kings and Garrett's 1st sailfish!  They reported they had a couple more sails crash on their baits.  It is obvious by the picture what the sail hit.    Also in on the action was some sharks taking advantage of the bait pods.  All of this is within sight of Myrtle Beach!  Congratulations Garrett..and at some point you must take a swim to commemorate you 1st sail!

The OIFC is gearing up for the Classic...the trophy is on it's way to OIB from the custom builders.  I hope to have a picture of the finished product this weekend.

""Artificial Trout"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/29/10
 

The trout have been pretty cooperative the last couple of days on artificials. We caught a few small flounder on artificials as well today. The flounder have been hard to get with the blues and pinfish being very active. Live bait is not lasting very long out there! See ya on the water!

"Shore Fishing" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/27/10
 

Joe Bunch of Wheeling W. Va caught and released this flounder and some reds today while fishing from the shore of the ICW below the Ocean Isle Bridge.  Joe was using ultra light tackle with 4 lb test and the blue and silver spoon shown in the pictures below.

The reds were caught at high tide and the flounder was caught about 2 hrs later using the same spoon cast into the grass.

"Really!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/26/10
 

I mean REALLY.  What do you believe?  Yesterday the near shore forecast looked like we were going to be blown away.  Check it now...doesn't even look like the same forecast.   What do you do?  Where is weatherman Rube when you need him?

Call in sick...let go fishing!!
