"Bluefin at the OIFC" | Catch All | 01/27/17
 

Capt Brant & Capt Derek landed this monster bluefin about 12 miles off the Shallotte Inlet this afternoon near the 10 mile Boxcar It hit a ballyhoo on a pink and White Sea Witch. Derek fought the tuna about 45 minutes before Capt Brant sunk the harpoon.  They had hooked up a couple of times before getting this one. Brant said the pogies were thick and the birds were working. Congratulations to Captains Brant & Derek. Y'all come try your hand

"Bluefin update" | Catch All | 01/18/17
 

There were a few more bluefin caught yesterday between Carolina Beach Inlet and the Frying Pan Shoals area. The bite wasn't red hot but there are definitely some bluefin moving through the area. Friday (1/20) is looking like another nice day on the water. Stop by the OIFC to stock up on all your bluefin tackle.

"Bluefin bite" | | 01/17/17
 

The bite is real. It is taking place off Carolina and Kure Beach from the top of the shoals back to the Inlet in 25-35' of water. The first fish was caught Sunday to show they were there and 3 yesterday and 5 today. There are some BIG fish over 100" being caught. Joe Seegers had a 100+" this am and the Wahooligans boys have been hooked up since 10am. I was fishing right next to them when they got the bite and the reel sounded like a diesel truck backing down a hill at 50mph. The cool thing about this is it's right off the beach around whales and birds- and it has good wind protection from any west to north wind; east would be tough. I'm going to give it a go again tomorrow with the SW wind. The weather looks good end of week and into the weekend. The OIFC has horse ballyhoo and all the rigging. We are also a recreational and commercial tag station and have a buyer to pick up fish to be sold. Capt. Brant McMullan

"" | Hail Yeah / OIFC | 01/16/17
 

How does Austin Eubank and Clint Richardson recover the day after catching a bluefin?  Yup, by catching another one today!  Wicked tuna has nothing on these two.  Time to dust off the gear and sharpen some hooks, the bluefin are HERE.  Stop by the Ocean Isle Fishing Center and get everything you might need to catch one.

The Ocean Isle Fishing Center is an official tag station for both commercial and recreational Bluefin.

"They're Coming!" | | 01/15/17
 

We got one!!!! Bluefin caught around whales and Pogy pods inshore of Carolina Beach sea buoy in 30' of water. Local fishermen Austin Eubank and Clint Richardson. Austin reports being on the way home and seeing a group of whales and gannets working and then seeing Pogy slicks. He said he was literally inshore of the sea buoy but didn't even get his second line out before he was tight. Morehead has not caught any Bluefin n 5 days and it is likely those fish are working their way down the coast- our turn! This same scene of whales and bait has been seen off Oceancrest pier but nobody has been trying. Sent from my iPhone
