"Jolly Mon King forecast" | OIFC | 06/11/16
Everyone is starting to get foscused on Jolly Mon next week. Here's what we[I] see now and my guess of what occurs going forward.
The water is still a little milky from the storm and you have to go 40+ miles to find good water color. That has impacted king fishing at normal spots for this time of the year. There are a few small Kings being caught at Shark Hole, but water color is negatively impacting the fishing.
HOWEVER; the wind is supposed to go to SW in front of a cold front that will come thru Sunday night. Winds will go north Monday and then back to south/southwest Tuesday and settle into a normal summer pattern. 2 goods things will be the result. The SW winds will bring in better water color to the 65 foot areas, and with the settling of the weather and steady air pressure, this is what the Kings like. THUS: by tourney time, expect the Kings to be back where they are supposed to be, and the contest will be pretty much the same as always; which 65 foot spot will claim the winner? All the normal spots should be in play.
Good luck to everyone and we will keep you updated on what we see this coming week on the water.
"Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic-Saturday" | Do Work / OIFC | 06/10/16
As many know I had the honor, & pleasure to be invited to accompany the Ocean Isle Fishing Center's Capt Brant McMullan, Capt. Chris Dew and his fine son and excellent OIFC 1st Mate Aaron Dew on a pre fishing expedition for the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic. Our mission was to tow the OIFC 39' Pelagic, Yamaha Yellowfin thru the approaching tropical storm safely to Biloxi, Mississippi Then we would fish various locations in an attempt to locate bait, Blackfin tuna, which is also bait, yellowfin tuna and hopefully the blue marlin. I'm pleased to say we were successful!! Aaron even hooked up on a monster marlin using a kingfish set up. Ask how did that work out Then on Wednesday Capt Chris and Aaron flew back to the OIFC to run charters. I stayed behind to hold down the fort at the Golden Nugget while Capt Brant, Capt Barrett McMullan, Brayden McMullan, Capt Jeff Beck, Brian Aycock and Scott Smith, nephew of the great Arthur Smith (Arthur Smith Kingfish Tournaments) took over the duties of actually fishing the Tournament. I cannot express my gratitude to the McMullans for all they have done for me and my family over the years. Pam loved them as much as I do. I have several posts chronicling our adventures. Good luck, God speed & Tight Lines Team OIFC!!!
