"Bait report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/27/09
 

Capt. Roger just radioed in that the pogies were thick as fleas about 1.5 miles east of Shallotte Inlet.  He is on a 1/2 day charter and just about to head offshore.  We'll keep you posted on what goes on out there today.  Sea condtions are nice--a big change from the winds of yesterday.

"Shark Hole/Christina's" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/25/09
 

Those are the two spots reported to be producing for the past 2 days.  Charter Captains as well as sport fishermen are reporting a hot King and Dolphin bite especially in the mornings.  Pogies are being found in the ICW behind Holden Beach and off Youpon Beach.  Let's hope the winds don't interfere with our playing off shore this weekend.

"Happenings" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/24/09
 

It is nice to be back on the water.  Over the past few weeks I've been pretty much land locked preparing for the Jolly Mon or sitting on my hands waiting for fishing charters.  The Jolly Mon is over and people are finally showing up to go fishing.  I've fished the last couple of days under near perfect conditions.  The ocean was calm, it wasn't too hot and the fish were biting.  The bite has been good at the 70' hole for Kings in the 6-15 pound class and we've caught at least one dolphin and/or cobia every trip mixed in with the kings.  Action has been good on dead Cigar Minnows but when you get live bait, it is guaranteed red hot.  The Pogys were off Holden Beach's west end and in front of Shallotte inlet today.  They are good size and trust me, the Kings love them!  Still waiting on the larger Kings to show, but not seeing many at all right now.

In other news, this weekend is a new King tournament.  The Jodi E. Tynch Memorial King Mackerel Tournament.  It is hosted out of Wrightsville and is a benefit tournament for Lower Cape Fear Hospice.  For information contact Mike Tynch at 910 284 3140 or miketynch@yahoo.com .

That's what is up.  I think I'll be heading off to the Stream on Friday to do some trolling and bottom fishing.  I plan on live baiting out there, so we'll see how it goes.  See you on the water!

"Yee Haw Fish Call Jolly Mon Winner!" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/22/09
 

This info may have already leaked out to the underground internet boards, but it is my understanding the winning fish in the Jolly Mon King Mackeral Tourney was lured in by non other than a YEE HAW FISH CALL! With all the spears I've taken both inside and outside the family, my thanks to the Reel Time Jolly Mon winners for vindicating me. YEE HAW!

I should also mention the 2 lovely Awards Girls, Miss Caroline McMullan and Miss Camdyn Beck.

Another one is in the books.  305 boats went out, but one came back with the biggest fish.  Samuel Rees of Southport, NC and crew aboard their 22 foot Sea Hunt boated a 38.15 pound King on Sunday morning at 10am while fishing near McGlammery Reef to take home 1st place and $26,000 in prize money.

Thanks to all the participants and sponsors for their support.  I'll see you on the tournament trail this Summer and hope to see you back at the OIFC for the Fall Brawl in October.

"Weekend Pics" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/21/09
 

The pictures from this weekend's fishing are rolling in, here are just a few to start.  Check out Jordan Sullivan, of Ocean Isle Beach, who caught this nice gaffer while fishing with his uncle, Forrest Taylor on Forrest's Yellowfin, the "That's My Dog."  Also, Wayne Hyde of Charlotte caught these dolphin, along with some king mackerel while fishing with his grandson, Zachary Kopka, at the 390s.  Good job to these fisherman and to all those who participated in this weekend's Jolly Mon King Classic.  Win or not, it's a great event to be a part of.

"Jolly Mon King Classic- 305 boats competing" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/20/09
 

305 boat entries this year.  I am very thankful for all the fishermen and their families that have decided to join us this year for the Jolly Mon.  220 or so are fishing Saturday and the rest on Sunday.  The capt. dinner, meeting and Pogy bobbing last night were quite the show.  It was a crowd and despite the lines, everyone remained courteous and I thank you all for that.  I wasn't anticipating such a turnout and I apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.  On the bright side, more boats means more $.  The prize payout wil be adjusted up as we have exceeded our payout base of 275 boat entries.  The weather is very nice this AM, although HOT.  Bait has been a problem, but Kings have not.  We'll see what turns up today.  Good luck to all and thanks.  Stay tuned to the Jolly Mon tournament page for weigh-in results.

"Jolly Mon Captains' Dinner" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/19/09
 

How many people make up a"bunch", or a "lot", or even a "whole lot"?  If you have the answer then you know how many people were at the Jolly Mon Captains' meeting.  There is no way I would have expected this turnout.  It was great to see, especially in these tough economic times...fact is, you'd never know the USA is struggling financially.  Guy C. Lee provided excellent food, there were numerous vendors and the Fishing Center was booming!  I don't know how many boats were entered, but ours was #232.  I'll defer to Captain Brant for the particulars.  Below are a couple of snap shots of the meeting.  Good luck and tight lines to all!

"1/2 day update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/19/09
 

Captain Roger and Turtle went out today and had success fishing with dead cigar minnows.  However the Pogies were not to be found.  It has been reported smaller pogies are in the ICW near the the new OIB Boat Condos.  On the charter were the Nelsons, Mark, who caught the Mahi, 12 year old Susie, 15 year old Colin, 12 year old Jessie, all of whom caught Sharks and Kings, and all from Tucson, Az..,  and the last Nelson, David from D.C., as  well as Sarah Bock.

Captain Chris Burrows had a 3/4 day charter to the 10 mile Rock.  He fished with naked dead cigar minnows and landed over a dozen Kings, some Mahi and some Spanish.

"Jolly Mon 09- Here We Go" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/19/09
 

It is imminent-- The 2009 Yellowfin/ OIFC.com Jolly Mon King Classic is going to happen.  Preregistration has been very strong, nearly double what we've ever had before.  The weather forecast has been flip flopping worse than a presidential candidate but is currently settled on 10-15kts, 2-3 foot seas.  The Kings are biting very strong in 50-70 feet of water, but we haven't seen many fish over 25 pounds.   The Pogys heard there was a tournament coming so they've scattered to all corners.  Bait on the beach has been sporadic the last couple of days, but its been consistent in the waterway near Lockwood inlet, Shallotte Point and in the Cape Fear.  The OIFC has plenty of hand caught Ribbonfish and of course Cigar Minnows, so don't forget those.  The Capt. dinner is at 6pm tonight and will be grilled chicken, beans, potatoes and all the trimmings....  The meeting will be roughly 7pm with Pogy Bobbing to follow.  Remember if you are coming tonight to ride the free shuttle from off the island over to the OIFC- raffle prizes are awarded to those who ride.  See you tonight.

*** Also, please don't call the OIFC to ask questions concerning the event.  The SCHEDULE IS HERE.  Entry will be open at the OIFC until 9pm and ON-LINE ENTRY will be available until midnight tonight.  If you enter on-line, I will process your entry and send a confirmation via email with your boat #.  If you do not recieve this confirmation by midnight, then EMAIL with your contact info and I'll get up with you to get it worked out.  There have been no problems with on-line entry to date, as it is running smooth.  If you have another question or concern, please EMAIL ME and I'll either call you or email back tonight after 9pm.  Thanks- Capt. Brant **

"Sam's Flounder" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/18/09
 

Below are some pictures sent in by Ed Ganus of Old Berlin, Wisconsin of his nephew Sam Kratzer and Sam's father Joe of Old Bennington, Vermont with the 4 ib flounder Sam caught in Tubbs Inlet.  They were fishing aboard Captain Jeff Williamson's "Get Busy".  The family was here to attend a funeral, and decided to take advantage of some quality family time as well as some of  Brunswick Co, fishing.  The last picture shows that Captain Jeff does know how to clean fish!

Thanks for the pictures and for fishing with OIFC.

"half day@the 90's" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/17/09
 

Captain Roger, 1st Mate Turtle on the Carolina Cat and Captain Chris Dew along with his son and 1st Mate  Aaron on the World Cat  joined forces today at the 90's.  They said the water looked   "pretty".  They both pulled dead Cigar Minnows with skirts, fishing for Kings.  They said that Pogies weren't quickly found at the usual locations and since they were on half day charters they didn't spend much time looking, they wanted to fish.  They brought home King, Spanish and Mahi.  One of the guys told his wife we called them Mahi because we didn't want people to think we were eating Flipper.  Good point!

Aboard the Carolina Cat were Tom Antolini and his 11 year old son Romeo of Huntersville.  Romeo caught 2 big Kings. Lee Rosencrance and son Cory, age 12, of Huntington, W.Va.  Cory is the one in the picture with the biggest King.  Also fishing were Jarrod Miller, age 11, and Chad Bourgeois from Texas.

Aboard the World Cat were Steve Giunto, Robert "Pops" Giunto, Dean Wagoner, Steve Keba,and son Zak, all from Ohio, and Jim Heidish from Fla.  The family meets at Ocean Isle every year for a family reunion, and this year decided to join us for a charter.  Thanks everyone for fishing with Captain Brant's Fishing Adventures.

"The fish are close!!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/17/09
 

No doubt, the fish have followed the bait inshore and are being caught not far at all from the beach.  Here we have Garret Williams, fishing with his father, Keith on their new 31' Cape Horn.  Derek caught these kings (his first) at Christina's Ledge.  They had Derek, who normally fishes on the "Eagle" on board to assist with this catch as well.  This nice dolphin was caught by Jeff Drake, Michelle Evans, and friends on board Jeff's boat "The Law," out of Little River.  In addition, that crew caght king mackerel, a citation spanish, three cobia (two of which were citation sized) and a giant tiger shark.  I guess the moral of the story is that you don't have to go very far to find good fishing right now.  A nice segue to this weekend's Jolly Mon...

"Citation Spanish" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/15/09
 

Walter Tedder weighed in a 7.7 lb. Spanish this afternoon.  He was fishing with David Tedder, Tommy Tedder, Jerome Bullard and Brad High.  The Spanish was caught at the 390/390's on live Pogies.  They found their Pogies in the ICW near the Shallotte River.

"Atlantic Ledge" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/15/09
 

Captain Chris Dew and 1st mate Aaron Dew took Mary and Russ Lane of Seattle, Wa., Tim and Gloria Cravens of Cedar Lake, Indiana, Daniel Hart of Chicago, and Lane Cravens of Greensboro, NC  to the Atlantic Ledge.  The charter folks were full of good stories such as when they hooked up a Mahi twice before he was boated.  Tim Cravens hooked up 1st and the Dolphin escaped, then came back and struck Rus Lane's line was it was curtians.   Mary Lane landed a King, while Gloria fought and beat a Mahie by herself.  Another memory they'll cherish will be the docking of the cat boat.

The basics of the trip were they found a large pod of Pogies at the mouth of the Shallotte Inlet.  They fished some with skirts and some naked Pogies.  The results were the same on both.  With the Jolly Mon on the horizon and the plentiful Pogies we again strongly recommend one of Captain Brant's Custom Pogy Nets.

"Yellowfin- OIFC.com Jolly Mon update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/15/09
 

Today is the last day to enter at the early entry rate of $215.  Entry will remain open at the OIFC until 9pm on Friday, June 19th and until midnight on Friday, June 19th on-line at www.OIFC.com --

The fishing this past week has been nothing short of excellent.  The fish are doing exactly what they are supposed to be doing as they move into the 50-65 foot depth range.  Capt. Roger posted an impressive 40.7 pound King last Wednesday from 60 feet of water and we have weighed several of Kings in the 25-30 pound range from 50-55 feet of water.  The Pogys are very plentiful all along the beaches.  The wild card this year may be a possible beach bite.  Last week the Kings lit up in 20-30 feet of water from Lockwood inlet to the mouth of the Cape Fear.  The Pogys and Glass Minnows were thick along this stretch and just offshore off all this bait, hungry Kings were biting.  The bite was very strong as many boats had double digit catches of Kings up to 43 pounds and I know of several in the 30+ pound range.  This bite slowed as we began to get evening storms and the beach water dirtied.  If those storms subside this week and the water clears up, keep it in mind.

I have instructed Rube NOT to post a weather forecast as he is notorious for jinxing the event.  I am simply copying and pasting the Marine Forecast for you to make your own decisions. 

THU
SE WINDS 10 TO 15 KT. SEAS 2 TO 4 FT... SUBSIDING TO 2 TO
3 FT IN THE AFTERNOON. A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND TSTMS IN THE MORNING.

THU NIGHT

*** Also*** Don't forget the Jr. Jolly Mon- you can enter this special Jr. tournament until the OIFC closes at 9pm on Thursday, then go fishing on Friday.  Rules and details are in your program.  BIG NEWS- Iron Horse Auction Company is auctioning off some prime lots on Ocean Isle and Monk Island this Saturday- they will be at the event on Friday to provide info AND as thanks for being invited to the Jolly Mon- They are donating an additional $500 to the Jr. Jolly Mon prizes!  Sign up and take some kids fishing with you on Friday- all the info is in your Jolly Mon program.
