"Thunderstorms & Kings" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/17/10
 

This morning Capt. Zach and I met Bruce Naylor and his friends, Dave, Mike, Lee, and Bruce, on the dock prepared to seek out King Mackerel. Also greeting us on the dock was an early morning thunderstorm complete with lightening and heavy downpours. After watching the radar, we decided to wait a couple of hours and let the storms pass. At about 9:30 the radar began to show favorable conditions offshore. It looked as though we would have to get through the last bit of rain on the way out but Bruce and his friends were real troopers. They wanted to fish. Their patience and determination paid off as we were met with only partly cloudy skies and light winds once we reached the fishing grounds. After a few cutoffs and one king being bitten in half at the Christina we moved over toward the AR 455. In a matter of minutes we were hooked up. We returned to the dock with several kings and a nice spanish. I would like to add that on our trip we were joined by Tim Haas from VISITNC.COM. He was with us to gather information that is to be used by our local Chamber of Commerce as well as VISITNC.COM.

"Capt Woody Wooten" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/16/10
 

Local fishing legend and #1 story teller Woody Wooten is recovering from a trip to the emergency room as a result of some astute observations of his fishin buddies. Seems he was having dinner with them, and they noted he wasn't telling fish stories; concluded he must be sick, so they took him to emergency room. He emerged with a pacemaker, 2 stints in his arteries, and according to Woody..."give me 3 weeks to regroup and the fish better watch out cause I'm gonna put a hurt'in on them! Go get em Woody!

"Don Leonard Billfish Award" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/16/10
 

The Don Leonard Bill Fish Award commemorates a man who was not only a great friend of the OIFC, but was a accomplished fisherman.  The award is presented to the angler who catches and releases a bill fish during the Far Out Shoot Out.  Until this year's tournament no one had won the award.

This year, Margarett Pennstrom caught and released a sailfish.  She was fishing aboard the "Clearly Hooked" Yellowfin hailing from Carolina Beach, N.C.  Also aboard were Austin Eubanks, Field Hucks, and Clark Truluch.  Pictured below is the crew with the bill fish and the Leonard family.

Margarett's name along with the boat name will be placed on the trophy.  The award is displayed in the trophy case at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center. Congratulations Margarett and the crew of the "Clearly Hooked".

"90's" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/16/10
 

Captain Chris Dawson took these pictures of the Arnolds on a May 14th 3/4 day charter to the 90's.  The 90's and the Lighthouse Rocks were pretty productive Thursday and Friday....not red hot mind you, but a good sign the kings are moving in closer.  The water was 70.5 degrees Friday and had good color to it.

Who is that guy in the blue OIFC shirt?

"May Flounder" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/16/10
 

The May flounder bite continues to get stronger. Many folks have reported that the bite is really hot in Tubbs inlet. Truth is many anglers are finding flounder all up and down the waterway now. Bait of choice are OIFC mud minnows...if you are proficient with a cast net menhaden can be caught in the canals or near Ocean Isle Marina in the waterway. Don't own a cast net because you are not sure how to throw one? Come buy one from the OIFC and I will show you how to use it in my spare time:) See ya on the water!

"New OIB inlet cut" | OIFC 2- 27' | 05/15/10
 

Went out at low tide and checked out cut where dredge has been taking sand for beach renourishment project. WOW! There is a cut lining up with the last house on Holden Beach closest to intercoastal, out to sea buoy that was 10 feet deep at low tide in most places. A big congrats to Town of OIB, Congressman McIntyre, and Captain Brant for working together with the Corp of Engineers to get them to make use of the beach renourishment project to dredge us a fabulous new inlet cut. It's the best it's ever been! Will post the co-ordinates soon as possible and hopefully soon as the dredge is gone, Brant can get permission from Wildlife to relocate the buoys.

The existing inlet is virtually closed up at dead low, so this new cut is very important to all the boaters using Shallotte Inlet. Great work team!!!!

"Yellowfin bite on the beach" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/15/10
 

Not to throw spears at the Far Out Shoot Out fishermen, but just weighed a bona fide, verified 28lb Yellowfin Tuna caught at the Christina Ledge by the Carribean Soul, captained by Jamie Milliken and crew. They were King fishing with dead cigars when he hit the prop wash bait. The Christina is almost in sight of land, just beyond the 390/390. They also caught a few kings at the 390/390. Congrats to Carribean Soul on an extrodinary catch!

"In Shore Action" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/15/10
 

Today was a busy day at the OIFC.  Not only was the Far Out Shoot Out in full swing, but we weighed in a 5.1 lb Speckled Trout caught by Brent Clodfelter (his wife Brittney is on the cove of the Fisherman's Post with a 6 lb. flounder).   Captain Kyle weighed a 7.8 lb flounder to take the lead on the Rodeo's flounder division, Courtney Beck caught her 1st ever flounder, and her 4yr old daughter Camdyn caught one on the same trip.  Most of the in shore action was around OIB and Sunset Beach.

"Friday Update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/14/10
 

The ocean is beautiful and about 20 boats checked out this morning for the Far Out Shoot Out.  For those not fishing the FOSO, the kings were hanging out about 8 miles off shore.  Jeff and I are going to try that today.

Inshore, I've been told the flounder bite is on and told it is slow.  I've also been told the flounder are small.  What does one believe?  Check these pictures out that good friends Tommy Helm and Tommy Lytton sent in.  One of the fish is a 4.8 lb Rodeo Board leader.  Hope to see you this weekend.

"Kings" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/14/10
 

Capt. Jeff B and I king fished today.  The seas were absolutely beautiful.  We only had a few hours to fish so we elected to not put much effort into looking for pogies.   A good thing, because we didn't find any.

We went about 8 mile out to about 50 ft of water depth.  The water temperature was 70.5 degrees.  Using frozen cigar minnows withBlue Water Candy skirts we set out 4 lines.  Almost immediately we got a bite!  The scream of aSpeedmaster is music to a fisherman's ears.  During our short time out we got to hear that noise several more times, once during a double hook up and almost every time on a green skirt..  All the kings we landed were teenagers.  A great day.

To all the spanish mack. fishermen, we encountered spanish  in 14 ft. of water just west of the Shallotte Inlet while looking for bait and again on our way back, in about 36 ft of water and close to the sea buoy.  Tomorrow Jeff will flounder fish, I'll be at the OIFC Store..Hope to see you here.  Be sure to attend the FOSO Awards dinner Saturday night.

"Real Time Update-8:44 am" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/13/10
 

Carolina Cat reports no bait on the beach with muddy water.  Sea conditions are 3-4 ft rollers at his location.  Advised "small boats" exercise caution.  Captains Chris Dawson and Chris Eckert aboard the C. Cat had just set out baits an undisclosed  (to me) location and as soon as I called him for the report he hooked up.

***Jut communicated with the 7th Heaven (fishes in the under 25 in the FOSO). The captain reported surprisingly nice conditions in the Stream.  He'd found 70.5 degree water.  The OIFC's radio can definitely reach out there when conditions allow.

***8:56 update.  The Carolina Cat is about 8 miles out and reports king in the box with the ocean about 2.5 ft.  Said it had laid down.

"Far Out Shoot Out report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/12/10
 

1 boat fished today- Black Gold- they reported fishing the Steeples area and succeeded in catching the Carolina Slam-Tuna, Dolphin and Wahoo.  They weighed a 15.15 Blackfin, 8.2 Dolphin and 21.1 Wahoo = 44.45 total to take the new overall lead.  They reported sloppy sea conditions around the 3-5 feet, but obviously fishable- good job.

To date, 20 boats have registered.  I know there are more out there watching the tournament and the weather, and hopefully they will decide to join the event.  The weather forecast for Thurs, Fri and Sat is very fishable with winds of 10-15kts and seas 2-4 feet.  It isn't going to be flat, wish it were, but it should be very fishable.  It can't always be easy.  On-line entry is open until 11:59 Friday PM- CLICK HERE to enter 

Current standings:

1st Tuna- OIFC Fishing School- 19.55

1st Dolphin- OIFC Fishing School- 15.55

1st Wahoo- Black Gold- 21.1

Don't forget you have to call the tournament hot line at 910 253 3474 before 8am the day you are fishing to declare or change your fishing day.  Good luck.
