"Jr. Jolly Mon Sailfish" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/14/10
 

Sometimes I wait to do fishing reports folks send me until a "rainy day", which is what today is.

Here is a report of a sail fish caught  during the Jr. Jolly Mon that Amber Simmons sent.  The pictures are just too beautiful!  Courtney Waddell was the angler.  She was fishing with Danial Simmons (OIB Concrete),  Bryan and 9 yr old Derick Freeman aboard Amber and Daniel's Contender.  The sail was caught in 65 ft of water right off of OIB.  Amber said she decided to take the "glory picture while they successfully removed a deep treble hook.  The beautiful fish swam off hookless and healthy.

"Jungle Sail Fish" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/14/10
 

Darby Lykins, (left) and Frank Harrington (right), show a 6 ft 6 in. sail  caught while fishing the Jungle  for kings, using pogies on #6 treble hooks on July 6th.  Fishing with them were  Mike Cochran, Seth Joyce and Allison Strong.  They fought the fish for about 45 minutes.  Once safely onboard  Frank's "Laid Back", the trebles were quickly removed, the fish measured, and a photo was taken.  They the revived the sail and it was released in healthy condition.

Great job and thanks for sharing the story with the readers.  As I said, sometimes I save reports for rainy days like today.

"Cape FearSailfish Classic" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/14/10
 

I'm sure by now you've noticed a common thread with today's fishing reports.  They lead up to mentioning the upcoming Cape Fear Fishing Classic scheduled for August 12-15th out of the Ocean Isle Fishing Center.  This is a new event and promises to be exciting.

There have been a LOT of sails caught off of OIB this summer and you don't have to travel far or do much of anything special to catch them.  We'll be posting reminders as the event draws closer.  You can follow the link, or check the scroll box on the OIFC's main web page.

In addition to the previous pictures here a few more which I hope gets you fired up enough to participate in the tournament.  We'd like for it to be a successl so we can enjoy it in years to come.

"Redfish???" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/13/10
 

Fished with Mr. Pitt, Adam, and Chad today...Caught trout and lots of flounder again today. We could not find a redfish to complete the slam again today. Heard of some redfish being caught out in the surf. Also saw one get pulled out from under the docks in the waterway. I am sure the redfish are all up and down the waterway in deep water. Just hard to fish the waterway with all the traffic. Will continue looking for the redfish tomorrow. See ya on the water!

""Flounder Pounding"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/12/10
 

Took a father and son out today for there first saltwater adventure. Caught trout and flounder early this morning on artificials. Stephen the son beat his Dad up pretty bad with the artificial fishing. We switched to live bait and Mr. Apt put the hammer down on the flounder. It took Stephen a little while to get the technique down before gaining some ground back on his Dad. We caught 17 flounder, 3 trout, and 2 bluefish, making for a pretty good day on the water. We almost claimed a jet skier today, but I stuck a horn in his ear and he got the message. See ya on the water!

"Banner Day" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/12/10
 

The OIFC Charters had a banner day today.  They both caught a bunch of kings mostly at the Shark Hole and the 90's.  Where were these kings this weekend when we were searching for them during the Got-Em-On King Classic?  Captains Chris Dew and Chris Dawson said the seas were flat and that the kings turned their noses up at pogies and hit exclusively on frozen cigar minnows.

These pictures are of the Seay's, Eric, Nathan, Darren and David of Oakridge Tenn.

"Lesson Learned" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/12/10
 

Captain William Parker, of the "Hound Dog" learned his lesson well!  Last week he caught a 40.6 lb king.  William wasn't in the OIFC Rodeo.  He since signed up and promptly went out and caught this 24 lb king which put him smack in the lead in the king division.  Austin Aycock was moved to 2nd with his 20.4 lb king, and Jeff Beck joined the fray Sunday by weighing in a 19.1 lb king.

Jeff's king was caught during the Got-Em-On King Classic.  Captain Jeff weighed a 28.35 lb king at the tournament, but held on to the 19.1 lb'r to be weighed in at the OIFC for the Rodeo..Good thinking for both William and Jeff

"Inshore Report" | Speckulator - 22' | 07/11/10
 

It seems like summer is literally flying by, and we are suddenly in the "dog-days" of summer, which means the inshore criiters are transitioning into their hot weather, hot water kind of patterns.  The flounder fishing remains consistent, but the fish have been very mixed size wise,  so you just have to keep grinding through the little ones to find the good ones.  That being said though, we have caught some really nice fish this week with several fish in the 3lb range, a couple of 4s, and a 5lber, so there are some nice ones out there.  One thing that is happening with the flounder is that the seem to being headed for deeper waters as they usually do this time of year, as the inlets have been producing quite well recently, and there have started to be some fish on the nearshore reefs and wrecks.  Also, there are still some nice redfish around that are willing to bite, both in the backwaters and around the inlets as well.  The trout have also made a few appearances lately, but as is typical with them this time of year, you tend to catch them one day and not the next, but even if they dont bite, some of your norma trout spots might be worth checking.

"Bottom Fishing" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/10/10
 

Mrs. Amber Simmons reports the grouper bite was hot off of OIB over the 4th week.  Fishing buddies, Kennon Hill, Dr. Bryan Freeman, Brian Robbins, Daniel Simmons (OIB Concrete)  limited out on groupers during 2 fishing trips.  They were using live bait in about 180 ft of water. Family and friends have enjoyed the catch, grilled grouper, grouper bites, grouper salad and grouper formage.

Thanks to Mrs. Amber, she contributes regularly to the fishing reports and helps us all keep up to date on the current fishing happenings.

"Another Carolina Slam" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/10/10
 

Reno and Naylor put a pounding on the flounder...Reno also landed a red fish and a trout successfully completing the inshore slam. Flounder continue to show a consistant pattern...The trout seem to be spread out, but if you work hard you can find a hand full or two between 2-3 pounds. The red fish also seem to be very spread out...I have only been able to locate one here and there. I am looking forward to fall when the reds stack up again to crush the mullet. See ya on the water!

"The OIFC has issued an APB for one of our own" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/09/10
 

If you spend any time here at the OIFC,  there is a familiar face that you undoubtably know.  One of our own, Doppler is missing.  Last night, he was scared by the storm that hit Ocean Isle and was outside.  He broke out of his back yard and has been missing since.  If you are in the area of Bent Tree, on the mainland side, please keep an eye out for him.  He is a Large Golden Retriever with a short summer haircut.  If you have seen him please call the OIFC at 910-575-3474 and let us know.  Thanks for all of your help and support.

"This Week Inshore" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/09/10
 

This week has been extremely productive inshore, especially flounder fishing.  Several "tourists",   meaning those not familiar with the local fishing spots, as opposed to" terrorists" who drive mini vans with out of state license plates and give obscene hand gestures in traffic, reported catching flounder,  sometimes called fluke at the Sunset Beach Bridge.

Jeff Wallen fished the weekend and reported a double slam on trout Friday.  Saturday, he and his son Josh caught 7 keeper flounder before 11 am as well as a 6 lb red.  Some were caught behind Sunset Beach, while others were caught in the Shallotte Inlet.  The fish were caught  on pogies.  The ones he and Josh are holding in the pictures were released.

Dr Wallen sits on a committee for the S.C. DNR.  He said that biologists have told him that the flounder over 16 " are females, and the bigger the flounder the more eggs they produce and the more often they produce them.  Thusly releasing them improves the flounder fishery.

The othe picture is of Captain Jeff Williamson's charterf rom yesterday.  Not too shabby for a half day trip.
