"Brunswick Waterway Sweep" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/03/15
 

~~
The Brunswick Waterway Sweep went off without a hitch. We had 6 boats to show, which consisted of Brian Aycock's Team, Keith Berciunas' Team, Clay Morphis, Michael Uzzell /Joyce Bailey, Jeff Williamson and myself.


These 6 boats collected 2,533 pounds of trash in only a two hour window! Believe me when I say our waterways are dirtier than you can ever imagine. We are going to attempt to have the event next year and hope to see more boats.

Thanks to the Ocean Isle Fishing Center, Capt. Jeff Williamson with Get Busy Charters, Sloane Vacations, InterCoastal Net Designs and Tony Carico for the cash donations and giveaways. Also I would like to thank the team that helped put on the event which consisted of Venus Veden, Carolina Cowan, and Toni Carico!

"Stream Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/01/15
 

The Morris Gulf Stream trip was a success today. We found a weather window and went for it. After running to 120ft of blue water and fishing for only two hours, the total count was four mahi, one wahoo, and one blackfin. The day was really coming together before mother nature kicked us back to the dock. I am hoping to go to the stream tomorrow and will definitely be out there on Sunday.  Call (910) 575-FISH to book your charter today!

"Capt. Adam's Spanish Report" | Do Work / OIFC | 04/30/15
 

~Catching Spanish Mackerel
By Capt. Adam

This time of year during the transition from spring to summer, when weather is unpredictable and winds are constantly changing, Spanish mackerel is a great inshore fish to catch when you can't get off-shore. As a former charter captain, the Spanish mackerel was my "go to fish" when things weren't going as well as I would have liked with no fish in the box.
Twenty-five years ago Spanish mackerel were plentiful and you could catch a cooler full in a matter of minutes. Find the birds and you would find huge schools of Spanish. Throw out a couple of #0 Clark Spoons" and troll around the outside of the schools and catch them as fast as you could put the lures back into the water.
When I retired from charter fishing some years ago catching Spanish became less and less, due to a number of problems which I won't go into at this time. Has it improved since I retired, I doubt it. Today, they are harder to find, small, often times too small to keep. I have fished against the best of charter captains and none have come up with a true and guaranteed way of finding and catching them.
I experimented with different lures, under different conditions, rising, flood, falling, ebb tides, and over time came up with a system which worked very well when it came to locating and catching Spanish mackerel. First, I used #00 gold and #00 silver spoons for small Spanish, and the same in #0 – 01 for larger Spanish which hung around the 3 –mile reef off OIB sea buoy. Second, I used 30# pink leaders which are transparent in the water. I would start with 20’ leaders and increase by 10’ on #1 planners up to 40 -50 feet until we found Spanish. At 5 knots speed 10 seconds of line out on #1 planner will put it down 10’, guaranteed. 15 seconds 15’. Depending on tides 15’ may bump bottom near sand bar. You can also run a short line on #2 planner with #01 spoon and 15’ leader. Silver #00 works best early morning and afternoon, gold during noon time. I assure you that you will be catching Spanish when other boats will not. Most fish were caught between the sand bar and sea buoy.
Also, fishing the tide lines during slack tides also worked well as Spanish tend to follow small fish out of inlet on falling tide. Also, watch you fish recorder. If you see fish hanging on bottom it’s probably Spanish. Keep adjusting your leader length and line until they start to bite. Mark the spot and catch fish!
Happy Fishing,
Captain Adam (ret)

Rube McMullan 05/01/2015

Great to hear from a legendary OIB captain, Captain Adam Saunders. For those who don't know, Capt Brant's first mate job was working for Capt Adam on the Job Site; 25 years ago!!

"Stream today" | | 04/29/15
 

We snuck in the weather window that was available today and had a good day on the water. It was surprisingly nice all day until about 2pm when it blew up for the ride home. We fished the Steeples and found it covered up with Blackfin Tuna. They were jumping and busting most of the day and had no problems biting the green machine/bird rig as well as small rigged ballyhoo on 80# fluoro- the best skirts today were pink/white 1/2oz sea witch, pink/white little stubby bubbler and a chartreuse/yellow baby Islander. We also were running two squid teaser chains rigged with a hookless ballyhoo and those attracted the Mahi which made for fun bait and switch. We didn't see many Mahi, we boated 5 and pulled off a couple I believe. We also caught two Weehoos which were a nice surprise and believe it or not a 25# King in 300' of water. It was a steady and busy day for us-- On board were Capt Chris Eckert, Billy Noble, Brayden McMullan and myself. I'm looking forward to the Far Out Shoot Out which starts next week- first fishing day is Sat 9th. Www.oifc.com/foso

"River Sweep" | Do Work / OIFC | 04/25/15
 

~~
Today Kyle Hughes and I participated in the Little River South Carolina River Sweep hosted by Patrick Kelly! Although it rained the event went on. Kyle and I collected 12 bags of trash and 3 crabpots along the shoreline between Ocean Isle Beach and the Little River Cross Roads in 1 1/2 hours. We left plenty behind - it is amazing how dirty our waterways are.


Looking forward to seeing everyone next weekend at the WaterwaySweep held out of the Ocean Isle Fishing Center! 9 - 11am - cash prize will be awarded to the heaviest amount of trash weighed! Message me with any questions you may have.
