"CALL TO ACTION- IMPORTANT" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/29/10
 

This is the issue regarding trying to install terminal groins along Ocean Isle Beach.  A terminal groin is very similar to a jetty, just a little smaller.  It slows beach erosion, BUT it also makes for great fishing and will help keep Shallotte inlet from filling in.  Please read and help with the following -- TUESDAY IS DEADLINE- DO NOW !!!!!!!!

*CALL TO ACTION*CALL TO ACTION*CALL TO ACTION*CALL TO ACTION*CALL TO ACTION*CALL TO ACTION*CALL TO ACTION*

 

Time to carpet bomb NC House Speaker Joe Hackney’s office…

Forward this call to action to anyone in your address book that is willing to make a call and/or send a fax and/or send a letter! Be polite…don’t let up!

Subject: CALL TO ACTION

 

Hello everyone,

It is time for ACTION on our terminal groin bill, SB 832. This will be our last shot! We need as many people as possible to CALL, FAX, and MAIL Speaker Hackney’s office requesting that he let this bill be heard. Attached are talking points for you to use. Please use your own words if possible but request that he let the bill be heard and debated freely and openly. Please take action BEFORE NOON NEXT TUESDAY, JUNE 1.  Do not send emails, they are less effective. Please call and fax or call and mail to double our numbers. Keep me posted is you get any feedback from his office. A group of elected coastal officials are meeting with him on June 1 to attempt to find out if he will allow this bill to be heard and debated. I will keep you posted.

 

Mayor Debbie S. Smith

Town of Ocean Isle Beach

(Ofc) 910-579-6217

 

 

 

This is the content of the attachments above:

 

Please make contact by individual phone, fax and mail with

NC House Speaker Joe Hackney before June 1

regarding Senate Bill 832, CRC May Permit Terminal Groin:

 <> 

Erosion at coastal inlets is unlike erosion along other parts of the NC Coast, so much so that we already have a different set of State rules under CAMA for what is and is not allowed to take place there.  The terminal groin would be one more proven-effective inlet-specific tool to help manage our coast.

 

Erosion at coastal inlets is not only negatively impacting property owners, local governments and State DOT, who have had to deal with road and street protection costs and losses, it also negatively impacts public access for folks from all over NC and elsewhere, as well as negatively impacting environmental habitat for birds, turtles and other animals or plants important to our state and nation.  We can improve these negatives by allowing terminal groins to be designed and built for specific sites.

 

As directed by the General Assembly, the Coastal Resources Commission has studied terminal groins, stated that they are effective and made recommendations on their use.

 

On the day you became Speaker in 2007, you said, “There is no place in the State where the issues of Government and politics are better or more fully debated than in this chamber (the House).”

 

You also said on that day, “Democracy demands the opportunity for competition among ideas, and thrives only when what we produce has been tested and digested by survival in free and open debate.”

 

Mr. Speaker, please follow your own advice:

Let Senate Bill 832 be heard and

debated freely and openly during the 2010 short session

 

 

Call the Speaker’s office at 919-733-3451

AND

Fax the Speaker’s Office at 919-715-7586

AND

Mail the Speaker at:  The Honorable Joe Hackney, Speaker
                               NC House of Representatives
                               16 W. Jones Street, Room 2304
                               Raleigh, NC 27601-1096

                                      

Do not bother with sending emails.  They will have less impact than the methods above.

"Spanish" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/10
 

The spanish are on the beach...the full moon and weather are affecting the bite...trick is to be out there at daybreak...spanish are jumping everywhere out there, but only seem to be feeding close to the beach in 18 to 23 feet of water. Just outside of the inlet to the west and close to the OIB pier have been very productive. Want to know what I use and how to make the rigs? Come see me here at the store, I will be here Sat. and Sun. 2 to 9pm. Otherwise, I will see ya on the water!

"Fishing Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/10
 

Ran offshore to the wild blue yonder yesterday on a research mission.  Weather was very good early AM- cleared inlet at 6:30am and had lines in the water at 8:15am- 95 miles offshore!  I didn't have any coordinates or special place I was going, I pretty much ran 180 degrees until I saw a "sign".  The plan was big Mahi and Blue Marlin.  Thus I knew deep water and I was looking for something substantial to concentrate fish- I hate blind fishing.  At 95 miles / 1000 feet, we ran into the perfect current rip with weed and birds all through it.  Mahi were free jumping up and down; it was full of life.  We set out a spread of 4 Black Bart big Marlin lures and 3 teasers and set trollling speed at 9 knots.  The lures were regularly messed with by hordes of 5-10 pound Mahi, but it took a 15 pounder to even think about getting hooked up.  We worked on Mahi in the 15-35 pound class throughout the AM, all the while waiting for the big Blue to show.  Conditions were perfect.  The east wind began picking up at 10am and by noon it was getting sloppy.  The current was running hard into the wind which made it even worse.  At 12:30pm we picked up lines and bounced our way inshore, doing a little bottom fishing on the way.  All in all we had a nice catch of Mahi.  My idea of a good fishing trip is one in which my catch is good and I put myself in the position to achieve greatness, successful or not.  We caught nice Mahi and were in the right place to get a Blue.  Next time out we may achieve greatness, but you certainly cannot if you don't put yourself in the position.  Many of you own boats that cruise at 40mph or better.  On a nice day it only takes a couple hours to find yourself in 600+ feet of water.  That is where you will find the biggest Mahi and Blue Marlin- let's go explore!

"Shallotte Inlet" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/28/10
 

Been getting lots of emails and calls about status of Shallotte inlet.  I am happy to say that through the concerted effort of the Town of Ocean Isle, Army Corps, NC Wildlife and the OIFC we now have a VERY nice channel THAT IS MARKED correctly and wide open for business.  The channel is currently 12 feet at low tide.  I will continue work with NC Wildlife to insure the buoys stay accurate as they mark a safe path to the deep water.  Good luck to all, Shallotte inlet should be very navigable for the coming year.

On the fishing scene, I'm taking the new Yellowfin offshore tomorrow in search of glory- weather permitting.  Planning on running 80-100 miles offshore in search of BIG Dolphin and Blue Marlin.  I'm attempting an experiment to see if I actually solely target BIG fish in parts unknown if success is likely.  We will see- stay tuned for a report.  Our other charter boats will be trolling the edge of the Stream and be Kingfishing, so give us a call on VHF 11 all weekend.  Kings currently in 50-65 feet of water- the 65-100 foot depth range will not see near as much action-- get over 100 feet and you'll find them again -- Cobia in the 40-65 foot range as well and Mahi are scattered all over with main concentration in 150+ feet -- good luck to all, stay tuned.

"Mahi Bite Is On" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/28/10
 

The World Cat with Capt. Chris Dew and Capt. Zach Faulkner headed to the Stream today and found the mahi bite in full swing.  They pulled Islanders and Ceder Plugs and caught a dock cart full of dolphin fish.

Aboard the charter were Rick McCorkle, Jonathan McCorkle, Jake Rigsbee and Nick Appenzeller, all from Charlotte.  Nick had the honors of landing the biggest mahi.

"A little bit of everything" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/27/10
 

Started early this morning looking for a trout bite...caught one keeper flounder and one red barely in the slot on artificial bait. As the tide started to pull out I went to live bait looking for a flounder bite. The flounder are still cooperating pretty good and a nice trout also hit one of my menhaden. Decided to take a rest for some lunch. Waited for my three year-old son to get home from school. We took him out for his first spanish trip. Jake had a blast! Hopefully, June will jump start a better weather pattern. The fish have been tough so far this year, but they are definitly here! See ya on the water!

"Kevin Sneed's Pictures" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/26/10
 

Kevin Sneed sent these great pictures of a trip this weekend which started out as a mahi hunt.  On they way to the stream he decided to stop and do some jigging.  They got into some amberhjacks, when someone yelled "grouper!". To their pleasure and amazement what they were looking at was a 39.9 gag grouper!    Next they hooked up on this 30+ lb african pomano.  The "Feedin Frenzy" group were using a 7 oz Blue Water Candy pink and white Roscoe Jig.

After the bottom fishing battles they elected to start trolling which yielded 7 mahi.  They finished the day off with some near shore bottom fishing which resulted in beeliners, black bass, grunts and pinkys.  Now that's a day's worth of fishing.

"Inshore Report" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/26/10
 

Greetings from the backwaters! The continue to have consistently good fishing on the inshore grounds.  The flounder bite remains hot in all the normal flounder spots.  In addition there have been some really nice ones caught recently, so every bite could be a big one.  The trout fishing seemed to have slowed a little from what it was a week or two ago, but I feel that is due to the full moon and the fact that the fish have their minds on spawning.  There have been quite a few nice trout caught by flounder fishermen recently as well, so just like a big flounder, you never know when or where a gator might bite.  Finally, on the redfish front, it seems the fish have settled into a summertime pattern in many of their usual summertime haunts both along the ICW and in the creeks.  I honestly haven't spent a great deal of time redfsihing lately, but I know guys that are catching them, and I "bumped" a couple bunches of fish while running a creek recently, so they are definitely around. I'm sure a lot of people will have inshore fishing on their minds this weekend, so dont forget that the Dixie Chicken tournament is this weekend, and is basically the premeire inshore event in the area, so if you're gonna fish anyway, considering getting in the tournament, you might get lucky.  There is also an offshore division for you offshore fishermen as well.

"Cobia Catch" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/25/10
 

Yesterday Captain Chris Dew and Will King, aboard the World Cat fished with Christopher Harich, Jennifer Workman, Christy Workman and Jeremy Lee, all of Morgantown, W. Va.

They found king fishing sized pogies in the ICW just past the Shallotte River and headed to an AR about 8 miles out.  While there Christy and Jeremy tag teamed this 31.8 lb cobia on a pogey.  While they were jigging for more bait the smaller cobia hit..and on a light weight spinning reel.  They lost one cobia in the props and hooked up with a couple smokers.

""A Family Thang"" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/25/10
 

While heading out for some in shore fishing with my son Sunday I stumbled upon Ken Rich and his son  fueling up at the OIFC docks.  As always I asked if they'd done any good.  Ken said they had only 2 real small mahi.  I asked to get a picture for a "slow report day".  He laughed and said "let my son hold them, we were just out having fun."

We show pictures of big catches all the time.  But it dawned upon me that one of the most important things about fishing is the quality time we spend with our families...just having fun.  So, congratulations to the Rich duo for a successful fishing trip.

""Outta Tha Way Ole Man"" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/24/10
 

The words in the title are those of Brian Aycock after he was kicked to the back of the boat by his son Austin  and friend Tripp Hooks Saturday.  He is just finding out what all us older dads learned a while back.  Brian, pour yourself a stiff Geratol, kick back and stay the @#$% out of the way!!!!

Check out these pictures..That's an idea Brian, make yourself useful and take pictures.

"Tim's " | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/24/10
 

Tim Coleman stopped by the OIFC to weigh in this beautiful citation 37 lb king he caught while fishing aboard Terry Moore's boat on May 15th.  They were fishing live bait to the north of Ocean Isle Beach.  The guys caught some other kings and some spanish.  The "Big King" was Tim's first. Thanks for letting us weigh your great fish!

"Jake Fishing" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/24/10
 

Jake and I got in just a few minutes of fishing right before dark today. Jake had a blast fishing in the livewell full of pogies. Then while helping me reel I felt a flounder tap the bait, we gave the flounder a few seconds and then dotted his eyes! A fresh flounder makes a great midnight snack. See ya on the water!

"Honeymoon" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/23/10
 

Great friends of the OIFC, Zach and Mary Beth Hayes have sent pictures of their honeymoon fishing trip in Mustique, which is part of the Grenadine Islands. They fished near the island of St. Vincent which is closest  to where the Caribbean and Atlantic meet.  The captain showed them the contour of the ocean floor which goes from 100 ft to several thousand feet quickly.  The currents were rough  but the fish and birds were everywhere.  All in all they caught 12 blackfin, 8 barracuda and 2 kings.  They were having double blackfin hook ups on birds they were trolling right behind the boat.

This sounds like a great honeymoon trip!  Congratulations, we hope ya'll have a long and wonderful marriage and we'll see you soon at the OIFC.

"Spanish" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/23/10
 

William Parker sent this picture of the fish he and Cale Boxley caught at Christina's yesterday while fishing aboard William's "Hound Dog".  They were using quality frozen cigar minnows from the OIFC.

The ocean was beautiful yesterday.  The only problem is the pogies have not shown up along the beaches yet.  There are plenty flounder fishing sized pogies in the waterway.
