Brunswick County High School Fishing League is established and up and running. This year West Brunswick High School and Brunswick County Academy opted into the inaugural year of this one-of-a-kind, never-done-before, high-school, saltwater fishing league. Currently faculty leaders have been established at both schools and fishing clubs have been formed and officers elected. Student club members are working to form their two-man teams and reports at this point are that both schools are seeing strong interest and participation.
EVENTS: They will be inshore fishing events targeting Speckled Trout, Flounder and Redfish. Prizes will be awarded for the largest single fish from each species with the overall winner being determined by the heaviest combined weight of one fish from each species. *In order to qualify for the overall win, a team must weigh at least two of the three eligible species. Teams must leave from any port/ramp/dock with Brunswick County and may travel to fish anywhere they want by boat, no overland transport. No fishing lines may touch the water until 8am (cast netting is allowed) and all boats must travel by water, no overland transport, to the OIFC for weigh-in dock and present fish between 3pm and 4pm.
FIRST EVENT: Saturday, October 17th
WE NEED HELP: The premise by which this program will succeed is through fishing community involvement and support. We need people with boats suitable to target Speckled Trout, Flounder and Redfish and with time to give up a day to captain/chaperone fishing teams of 2 high-school students for their day of competition. We currently have 11 boats verified for October 17th, but we need 20 boats. When I announced the concept of this program months back there was a ton of "lip service support", but now its time to commit. There are kids wanting to participate but not enough boats committed to be able to accomodate. This program is the first of its kind to introduce competitive saltwater fishing as a sanctioned high-school sport. Brunswick County can set the standard for what is sure to be a growing program.
Rob's Bait Pens- IS COMING TO OIFC!!
GET ONE BEFORE TOURNAMENTS
The "Rob's Bait Pens" is planning a trip to the Ocean Isle Fishing Center to deliver a load of his top-notch custom bait pens. I am trying to get him here before the tournaments start the last week in September: Rumble, Open, Fall Brawl, Nationals....... The pens are incredibly effective for keeping but, but they are $$$$ to pay shipping on. Thus, Rob makes a couple trips each year to bring a load of his bait pens to OIFC customers so they can skip the shipping cost. Below is his list of available pens. For Bluefish and Pogys, most get the round 48" x 48" or the oval 60 " x 36" x 36". EMAIL or Call Brant at 910-367-2945 if you want to order one of these. ALL ORDERS MUST BE RECEIVED BY MONDAY, 9/14.
**** YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE AT LEAST ONE OF THESE PENS IF YOU PLAN TO FISH NATIONALS- A MUST! *****

The late summer/early fall bite is on in the Ocean Isle, Sunset Beach area. The 1st picture is Suzanne Nason with her red drum. The 2nd is Rip Van Winkle who fishes from his kayak, Picture three and four are Addie and Dav Hutnik and the last one is April Prince with her red drum. Come on down and take advantage of some of this action!
Paul, Jack, and Will Spreen and Dean (Will’s friend) joined me on a four-hour shark trip on Sunday (9/6). The action started out fast and furious with Dean and Jack bringing in a couple nice Spanish mackerel. After the mackerel action slowed we decided to shark fish for the rest of the trip. Unlike the morning trip, the sharks seemed to be a bit shy with only having four total bites. However, Will and Dean wrestled this healthy black nose shark back to the the boat. It’s always a good time on the water with this crew. Great job guys.
Picture one is of Bryson and his hing he caught in 80 ft of water today while fishing aboard the Miss Reagan.
Picture 2 are fish caught by Donald and Catherine Clifton on their "Carolina Cat" in 80 ft of water.
