Below are pictures of the OIFC's Capt Stan and his family partaking in a little in shore action with the Bellamys.   Capt. Jeff and I chartered with Stan many moons ago to learn about in shore fishing. Stan was with Corey Belem in these pictures aboard Corey's boat with Corey's son South, Fisher & Rylee.  Corey said they were using "Gulp stuff".  That's the best I could get at the time. The Fall Bite is on. Corey said the "killed it"!Come see us at the OIFC and enjoy the experience

"King of the Beach Recap" | Catch All | 11/09/16
 

Lots of traveling going on this past week. Instead of making the trek down south for the SKA National Championship, Team Beats Workin’/OIFC actually just got back from Florida. Capt. Ben Morris, Haley Smith, my wife Kelly and I fished the King of the Beach tournament this past weekend out of Clearwater, Florida. The fishing wasn’t as hot as we had anticipated but the atmosphere and experience we gained from the event was well worth the trip. We finished 39th overall and ended up 3rd in the traveling angler division with a 21-pounder. We were fortunate enough to get bites all day, yet couldn’t seem to put the hooks in the right fish. But that’s fishing right?

Regardless of our finish, attending the captains meeting and experiencing this huge event was incredible. Attracting just over 600 boats, the meeting was a massive attraction with tackle sales, raffles, food, boat show and many other vendors selling product. This was our first “Old Salt Fishing Foundation” tournament but I can promise it won’t be our last. Great tournament, great atmosphere, with great people.

Now back to work – we have LIVE SHRIMP BACK IN STOCK. Get yours while supplies last.

Atlantic bluefin tuna General category fishery closing Nov. 4, 2016

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) closes the General category fishery, coastwide, for large medium and giant Atlantic bluefin tuna (BFT) effective 11:30 p.m. local time, Friday, November 4, 2016, through December 31, 2016. The base quota for the General category is 466.7 mt. To date this year, NMFS has adjusted the General category base quota for 2016 twice, including a transfer of 125 mt from the Reserve category effective October 6, and a transfer of 85 mt (18 mt from the Harpoon category quota and 67 mt from the Reserve category) effective October 14, resulting in an adjusted quota of 676.7 mt. Based on the best available BFT landings information for the General category BFT fishery, NMFS has determined that the adjusted General category quota of 676.7 mt has been reached, (i.e., as of October 31, reported landings total approximately 677.4 mt). Therefore, retaining, possessing, or landing large medium or giant BFT by persons aboard vessels permitted in the Atlantic tunas General and HMS Charter/Headboat categories (while fishing commercially) must cease at 11:30 p.m. local time on November 4, 2016. The General category will reopen automatically on January 1, 2017, for the January through March 2017 subperiod. The intent of this closure is to prevent any further overharvest of the available 2016 General category quota. This action applies to Atlantic tunas General category (commercial) permitted vessels and Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Charter/Headboat category permitted vessels when fishing commercially for BFT.

Preliminary 2016 Commercial BFT Landings

As of November 3, 2016, preliminary commercial landings for the 2016 fishing year are as follows: the General category has landed 700.3 mt out of 676.7 mt and will close on Friday, November 4 at 11:30 p.m; the Harpoon category has landed 20.2 mt out of 20.6 mt; and the Longline category has landed 76.3 mt out of 182.3 mt. Landings updates will be made as necessary.

General category open; 2-fish limit starts Oct. 17

NMFS has transferred 85 mt of bluefin tuna (BFT) quota from the Reserve to the General category. Effective Oct. 17, NMFS is reducing the General category BFT daily retention limit for the remainder of 2016 from 4 to 2 large medium or giant BFT (measuring 73” or greater) per vessel per day/trip. The General category daily retention limit applies to vessels permitted in the commercial Atlantic tunas General category and the Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Charter/Headboat category while fishing commercially. NMFS will continue to monitor the fishery closely through dealer reports. Depending on the level of fishing effort and catch rates, NMFS may determine that additional action (i.e., quota and/or daily retention limit adjustment, or closure) is necessary to ensure available quota is not exceeded or to enhance scientific data collection from, and fishing opportunities in, all geographic areas. For further information, please see the notice in the library (link at left of page) or at: www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/news/breaking_news.html.

Adjusted 2016 Northern Albacore Quota and Bluefin Tuna Reserve Category Quota

NMFS adjusts the northern albacore (NALB) annual baseline quota for 2016 with available underharvest of the 2015 adjusted U.S. NALB quota, and augments the 2016 Atlantic bluefin tuna (BFT) Reserve category quota with available underharvest of the 2015 adjusted U.S. BFT quota, consistent with the annual quota adjustment processes established in Amendment 7 to the 2006 Consolidated Atlantic Highly Migratory Species Fishery Management Plan. Effective September 1, 2016: The adjusted 2016 NALB quota is 658.75 mt. The adjusted 2016 BFT Reserve category quota is 200.58 mt. For further information, please see the notice in the library (link at left of page) or at: www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/news/breaking_news.html.

Bluefin Tuna Angling Category Northern Trophy Fishery CLOSED through December 31, 2016

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) closes the Atlantic bluefin tuna (BFT) Angling category (i.e., recreational) fishery for large medium and giant "trophy" BFT (measuring 73" or greater) in the northern area effective 11:30 p.m. local time, Saturday, August 6, 2016, through December 31, 2016. The northern area is the area north of 39°18'N (off Great Egg Inlet, NJ). The intent of this closure is to prevent any further overharvest of the Angling category northern area trophy BFT subquota. Fishermen may catch and release or tag and release BFT of all sizes, subject to the requirements of HMS catch-and-release and tag-and-release programs. For further information, please see the notice in the library (link at left of page) or at: www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/news/breaking_news.html.

2016 Recreational Atlantic Tunas Retention Limits

Effective April 23, 2016, through December 31, 2016, the bluefin tuna (BFT) daily retention limits are the following. For HMS Angling-permitted vessels: 2 school BFT (27 to <47") + 1 large school/small medium BFT (47 to <73"); for HMS Charter/Headboat-permitted vessels: 3 school BFT + 1 large school/small medium BFT. These limits are effective for all areas except the Gulf of Mexico. The recreational BFT trophy fishery (73"+) is currently open north of 39°18' (off Great Egg Inlet, NJ) (NOTE: CLOSES AUGUST 6, 2016 at 11:30 PM); as well as in the Gulf of Mexico with a limit of 1 BFT measuring 73" or greater/vessel/year. For further information, see notices in library (at left). The recreational yellowfin tuna retention limit is 3/person/day or trip. The minimum size for yellowfin and bigeye tuna is 27" curved fork length. There are no recreational limits for bigeye, skipjack, or albacore tunas.

Bluefin Tuna Angling Category Southern Trophy Fishery CLOSED through December 31, 2016

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) closes the Atlantic bluefin tuna (BFT) Angling category fishery for large medium and giant "trophy" BFT (measuring 73" or greater) in the southern area effective 11:30 p.m. local time, April 10, 2016, through December 31, 2016. The southern area is the area south of 39°18'N (off Great Egg Inlet, NJ), outside the Gulf of Mexico. The intent of this closure is to prevent any further overharvest of the Angling category southern area trophy BFT subquota. Fishermen may catch and release or tag and release BFT of all sizes, subject to the requirements of HMS catch-and-release and tag-and-release programs. For further information, please see the notice in the library (link at left of page) or at: www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/news/breaking_news.html.

Preliminary 2015 Commercial BFT Landings

As of January 13, 2016, preliminary commercial landings for the 2015 fishing year are as follows: The General category has landed 614.5 mt out of an adjusted quota of 646.7 mt, the Harpoon category is closed and landed 43.8 mt/43.6 mt, the Longline category has landed 71.3/207.3 mt -includes NED-; and the Purse Seine category has landed 33.9 mt / 82.9 mt. Landing updates will be made as necessary.

NMFS Adjusts 2016 Purse Seine and Reserve Quotas; Transfers 34 mt to Longline category

NMFS has adjusted the Atlantic bluefin tuna Purse Seine and Reserve category quotas for 2016, based on regulations implemented in the final rule for Amendment 7 to the 2006 Consolidated Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Fishery Management Plan (Amendment 7). NMFS has determined the 2016 Purse Seine category quota available to Purse Seine fishery participants is 82.9 mt. The amount of Purse Seine category quota reallocated to the Reserve category is 101.4 mt. NMFS also has transferred inseason 34 mt of bluefin tuna quota from the Reserve category to the Longline category. As a result of this quota transfer, 0.25 mt (551 lb) of Individual Bluefin Quota (IBQ) will be distributed to each of the 136 Longline category permit holders who received IBQ shares under Amendment 7. IBQ allocation will be distributed by January 15, 2016, via the electronic IBQ system to the vessel accounts with eligible permits associated with a vessel. For more information, including a table summarizing the available Atlantic bluefin tuna quotas and subquotas for 2016 as of this action, please see the notice in the library (link at left of page) or at: www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/news/breaking_news.html.

Other 2016 HMS Recreational Limits

The recreational daily swordfish retention limit is 1 fish/person, with maximums of 4 fish/private vessel, 6 for a charter vessel, and 15 for a headboat vessel. The minimum size for swordfish within the recreational fishery is 47" lower jaw-fork length. You may not keep longbill spearfish. There are no retention limits for Atlantic sailfish, blue marlin and white marlin, but NMFS encourages recreational anglers to release all billfish alive. The minimum sizes for billfish are as follows: Blue Marlin: 99" lower jaw fork length; White Marlin: 66" lower jaw fork length; Sailfish: 63" lower jaw fork length; Spearfish: Retention prohibited. Lower jaw fork length is a straight line measurement from the tip of the lower jaw to the fork of the caudal fin. Recreational shark limit: 1 shark/vessel/trip with a minimum size of 54" fork length (78" for hammerheads); plus 1 Atlantic sharpnose shark/person/trip (no min. size); plus 1 bonnethead/person/trip (no min. size). As of March 15, 2016, an Angling or CHB permit will be required to retain smoothhound sharks (smooth dogfish, Florida smoothhound, and Gulf smoothhound); there is no retention or size limit for smoothhound sharks.

Permits for 2016 Now Available

This notice outlines the procedure for obtaining a 2016 Atlantic Tunas Permit, which allows you to commercially fish for and/or retain Atlantic bluefin, yellowfin, skipjack, albacore, and bigeye tunas; a Swordfish General Commercial Permit, which allows you to commercially fish for and/or retain Atlantic Swordfish; an Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Angling Permit, which allows you to recreationally fish for and/or retain any regulated Atlantic HMS (Atlantic tunas, sharks, swordfish, or billfish); or an HMS Charter/Headboat Permit, which is required by vessels taking fee paying passengers fishing for or retaining HMS. The permits issued for the 2016 season will be valid from the date of issuance through December 31, 2016. The permit fees will vary between $20.00 and $40.00 depending on the permits you apply for, and is payable by credit card (Visa, Master Card, Discover, or American Express) or check/money order. You will need your Atlantic tunas or your Atlantic HMS permit number to renew your permit for this up-coming season. If you do not have your permit number from last year available, you may look it up at https://hmspermits.noaa.gov using your last name, phone number, and zip code, or a Customer Service representative may assist at the number below. Please check your current permit information carefully prior to renewing your permit. Please Note: Changes to your permit category may be made under the following circumstances: a) When you renew the permit for the upcoming season; b) Within 45-calendar days from the permits’ date of issuance, to correct any errors in permit category provided the vessel has not landed bluefin. If you have questions regarding the permit process, our Customer Service representatives are available at (888) 872-8862, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time.

Stay Safe and Keep Your Distance from Whales

NOAA Fisheries reminds all fishermen and boaters to keep a safe distance from whales. Whales can get hooked in tuna rigs or tangled in monofilament line. We recommend boaters keep a distance of at least 100 feet from all whales (and at least 500 yards from endangered North Atlantic right whales, as required by federal law). In recent years, we have received increasing numbers of reports of tuna fishermen trolling their gear too close to humpback whales. This can result in injuries to both the whales and the people. Humpbacks create bubble clouds to corral their prey, and then lunge through the center to swallow the small fish. Fishermen or boaters in these bubble patches run the risk of colliding with a massive 79,000-pound humpback whale as it rapidly approaches the surface. When a whale collides with a vessel, it can be gravely injured and die from its injuries. Collisions with whales have also thrown boaters from vessels, causing injuries and even death.

Instructions for reporting bluefin tuna

To access the instructions, please see the notice in the library (link at left of page).

NEW Bluefin Catch Reporting Requirements

Atlantic Tunas General, Harpoon, and HMS Charter/Headboat categories, starting on January 1, 2015, are required to report the number and length of all bluefin tuna retained or discarded dead through the online catch reporting system of this website within 24 hours of the landing(s) or end of each trip. See the "Landings Reports" section on the home page for more information.

Amendment 7 Final Rule

NMFS announces the final rule to implement Amendment 7 to the 2006 Consolidated HMS FMP. This action is necessary to meet domestic management objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Act as well as the objectives of the Atlantic Tunas Convention Act and obligations pursuant to binding recommendations of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas. NMFS takes these actions to reduce and account for bluefin dead discards in all categories; optimize fishing opportunities in all categories within the U.S. quota; enhance reporting and monitoring; and adjust other management measures as necessary. Most of the management measures in the final rule will take effect Jan. 1, 2015, while some measures will take effect on either June 1, 2015, or Jan. 1, 2016. For more information, see the notice in the library (at left of page) or at www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/documents/fmp/am7/index.html.

Rules Regarding Permit Category Changes

Vessel owners can modify the category of an Atlantic Tunas or HMS permit up to 45 days from date of issuance, provided the vessel has not landed bluefin tuna as verified via landings data. This is a change from the previous restriction of 10 calendar days.

ESA listing for Atlantic bluefin tuna not warranted

After an extensive scientific review, NOAA announced today that Atlantic bluefin tuna currently do not warrant species protection under the Endangered Species Act. NOAA has committed to revisit this decision by early 2013, when more information will be available about the effects of the Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill, as well as a new stock assessment from the scientific arm of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas, the international body charged with the fish’s management and conservation. NOAA is formally designating both the western Atlantic and eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean stocks of bluefin tuna as "species of concern" under the Endangered Species Act. This places the species on a watchlist for concerns about its status and threats to the species.

Reminder for Charter/Headboat owners and operators

National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) wants to remind fishermen there are several federal regulations regarding fishing for dolphin and wahoo in federal waters of the Atlantic Ocean (Maine through the east coast of Florida). Summary of requirements *Owners and operators of charter vessels, and headboats are required to have a federal vessel permit to fish for or possess dolphin and wahoo in the Atlantic Ocean. *The vessel operator must have an operator card on board the vessel along with one other form of personal identification that includes a picture (driver license, passport, etc.). *How to get a permit or operator card* If you are the owner of a vessel needing a vessel permit and operator card to fish for dolphin and wahoo, please contact the Permits Branch at the address listed below: NOAA Fisheries Service, Southeast Regional Office, Permits Branch, 263 13th Avenue South, St. Petersburg, FL 33701; Phone: 727-824-5326; FAX: 727-551-5747. For a copy of the offical notice, visit the library (at left of screen).

PERMIT APPLICANTS MUST HAVE VESSEL'S OFFICAL REGISTRATION

Regulations implemented under the authority of the Atlantic Tunas Convention Act and the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act governing the harvest of Highly Migratory Species (HMS), including tunas, sharks, swordfish, and billfish by persons and vessels subject to U.S. jurisdiction are found at 50 CFR part 635. Under these regulations vessels are required to posses a permit to fish for HMS, regardless of fishing recreationally or commercially. These permits are legally issued to ONLY those vessels that have a valid registration, which can be verified with the U.S. Coast Guard or by the issuing State. No temporary registrations are allowed. It is unlawful for any person or vessel subject to these regulations to falsify information required on the application, and if discovered the responsible parties may be prosecuted.

Reporting Recreational Swordfish and Billfish Landings

Effective October 17th, 2007, a new internet based reporting system for recreational non-tournament landings of North Atlantic swordfish and billfish will be available. All recreational non-tournament swordfish and billfish landings, including those from Charter/Headboats, must be reported by the permitted owner of the vessel landing the fish, or their designee, within 24 hours of landing. A landed fish means a fish that is kept and has been brought to shore. Vessels landing swordfish or billfish in North Carolina and Maryland must report their landings through the state landing card programs. Vessels landing swordfish or billfish in all other states, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, must report their landings using the new internet reporting portal at http://www.hmspermits.gov or by calling the 1-800-894-5528 reporting line.

LPS BFT Length Validation Assessment Paper

The Large Pelagics Survey (LPIS) collects length data on recreationally landed Atlantic bluefin tuna (BFT). The LPS Procedures Manual (prior to 2005) specified that interviewers should measure and record the straight fork length (SFL) of BFT, not the curved fork length (CFL) that is used to define size classes for management purposes. Recently, some members of the recreational and commercial fishing industry have questioned whether or not this procedure has been consistently followed in the field. Some individuals have reported seeing LPS interviewers measuring CFLs of landed BFT. Therefore, they have raised a concern that the interviewers may actually have been recording CFLs rather than SFLs. The CFL of a given fish is greater than its SFL by some small factor (typically between 1-5%). If such errors have occurred, then LPS estimates of landed weight of BFT by size category would most likely be positively biased since length data are converted to weights for landings estimates. This evaluation was conducted to: 1) determine the extent to which CFLs were mistakenly recorded, and the extent to which such errors may have biased the overall BFT landed weight estimate, and 2) investigate the effects that biased measurements could potentially have had on prior stock assessments.

"King bite is on" | OIFC | 11/03/16
 

With tourney season coming to a close and many NC teams getting ready to head to Ft. Pierce for national championship, whats being left behind is the best king fishing of the year. King fishing has been way off this year and our charter boats have really struggled to find fish. But now, as season winds down, the best fishing of the year is going on and will continue thru November and into december. Kings are thick at the 65 foot depth[Shark Hole/Jungle] and can be caught on dead cigars or you may be able to net pogies as they are still here. The beach water temp is still an amazing 70 degress although will probably cool off this weekend. The grouper bite is on and bull reds are at the jetties. November is the new october so come on down.
