"Specks are on" | | 11/01/15
 

Local Trout gurus Clay Morphis and Brandon Sauls are kicking off the Fall Speckled Trout season with strong catches. Clay had a 5.5 on Saturday and Brandon had a pair of 4.5s on Sunday. Live shrimp has been the method of choice - AND it just so happens the OIFC is stocking live shrimp. Use a #6 or #8 Eagle Claw gold treble with 18" of 12# fluoro to a swivel, 1/2 egg and then a #108 trout bobber with a Bobber stop to control the depth presentation. The key is fishing the cork at the right depth and taking care of your shrimp. Rather than cast, try just setting shrimp in the water and free lining down current. Just like in King Mackerel fishing a more lively bait will result in more bites. As for depth, usually within a couple feet of the bottom is key. That could mean you fish the bait 8-10+ feet if you are at the jetties. ******ALSO- Capt Jacob had 2 spots left for next weekends inshore fishing school. Jacob is an artificial lure Trout specialist so this class is very informative.

"U. S. Open" | Do Work / OIFC | 11/01/15
 

This will be a "Do Work" report.  Friday was horrible for us.  Bait was scattered and even using a Capt. Brant's Heavy net didn't help.  We did manage a few pogies and had a couple of blues.  We stuck to our game  plan for most of the day and ground it out near Ocean Crest Pier.  Later in the day we went deeper and our number still wasn't pulled.  Camdyn had already told us we were wasting our time because we were fishing without her.

Today we left via the Little River Inlet, WITH CAMDYN ABOARD.  We had some bait left from yesterday and team mate Toby Russ was kind enough to leave us some of his as he had plenty.  We hugged the shoreline just in case we saw some flips, but didn't bother to stop.   We went directly to a spot Jeff loves, got our spread put out and got hit immediately on the downrigger.   After I got the shark off one end of the leader and the hook I buried in my hand snatched out we were back to grinding again with no hits.  Midday Jeff made the call to try to catch some blues.   We spotted a decent pod of pogies and a couple throws of a Capt. Brant's Stealth Net landed us some nice size healthy pogies.

We headed back out and joined the fleet.  Camdyn picked the skirts out and the lines were set out back out.  Almost immediately one of the lines went off and that 9 yr old Div. 9 Jr. Angler of the Year snatched the rod and went to work.  I was reeling up the downrigger when I heard her call for the rod butt guard.  Jeff got her that and I grabbed cameras.  That little girl fought the only king we'd had to bite like it was just another day at the office.  I don't remember anyone saying a word to her.  Next thing I know Capt. Jef has gaffed us a nice 28.55 lb king.  Everyone on the boat was in awe.

When we arrived at weigh in's, Camdyn carried HER fish and got applause the entire walk to the scales.  We are all So proud of her.  She represents her family, the OIFC, the SKA and the rest of our sponsors like a true professional.  I don't know where we finished but I will say we started a difficult, emotional year on a positive note and ended it on the most positive note.  I am one proud senior angler and Papa'd.  Congratulations everyone on a great season and congratulations Camdyn Beck.

*****I just saw where we finished a very respectable 22nd

Great job Camdyn do you do fishing videos I have a cousin needs to learn how to stay calm when catching king mackerel he's been doing it a long time, but still can't control his emotion. Once again great job it looks like you have great control and are very focused. it would make a great Christmas gift for senior anglers, and remind them to keep it fun.

"Nationals, Team Do Work" | Do Work / OIFC | 10/24/15
 

Team Do Work/OIFC didn't set with world on fire, only weighing in a 17.48 lb king.  But it was a learning day for the youth aboard.  Jacob Utley fought the fish and Camdyn actually gaffed it.....her 1st.   I hope they get the big one today.

"King bite" | | 10/23/15
 

In case you haven't heard there has been a pretty good king bite at yaupon reef the last few days. Pogys are going to be hard to get so you will need an OIFC Heavy or Stealth cast net to have any chance. Bluefish will work well and they are schooling outside inlet mouths now. The Kings up that way have been good size! Capt. Brant McMullan

"Nationals" | Do Work / OIFC | 10/21/15
 

Capt. Jeff and Capt. Rickey arrived in Morehead with the Do Work/OIFC Sunday afternoon just in time for the leaderboard posting of the Troopers Assoc. KMT.  Along with Timmy Clemmons we went bait catching Monday and were joined by team mate Jay Utley Tuesday for some more bait catching.  Pofies are thick along  Emerald Isle beach in 8 to 20 ft. of water.  You better have a good net.  Theses boys are big and fast!!!   Today (Wednesday), Capt. Rickey had to make an appointment in Wilmington while Jef, Jay and Jon Hayes did some fishing.  They didn't fair too well but some other boat who were scouting did.  The ocean about 20 miles out was a little bumpy.

I saw a ton (a NC Unit of Measurement) of boats on 17 headed to Morehead as I was leaving.  Looks to be a good crown.  I will be back up there tomorrow for the Captains' Dinner and hope to have some pics.
