Scale Bound takes the lead in the OIFC Rodeo. This may mean war!!!!
~~There were 2 of us on "Box Office", and had to stop wahoo fishing after an hour, because we each had 2. 5 gal. bucket for scale. 50#+ average weight. Ocean was alive 3-4 miles down the beach from Same Ole in 25-40 fathoms. Saturday, 11-7-15.
Helping the Shriners help children!
~~Daniel Simmons, Brian Robbins and Bryan Freeman went wahoo fishing on Friday. Ended up a bit shy of our 500 lb limit, had a good day with 9 wahoos in the box from 38 to 53 pounds. Really good fishing out there right now. Lots of little bonitos busting, lots of rigger bites. Fun Fun.
Thanks for the report Brian and thanks for the on dock advice Daniel ;)
Trask fished with Elizabeth Kahn aboard his 27' Contender the "Scale Bound" today and got a few kings. The fun and games are probably over as I hear thunder now (10:13pm).
I borowed these pix from Travis Overman from yesterday
~~The water in each tank was taken from the same body of water at the same time.
The only difference is that one tank also contains oysters. A single adult oyster can filter and clean up to 50 gallons of water every day.-From an Emerald Isle Post Thank you Shaun Bellamy for posting this. I foound it interesting.
Here are some pictures posted by Jef Reid. He had his limit and was home by lunch. Look at that beautiful ocean!!!
+++++The king bite is on fire. I'm seeing reports of record numbers of kings being caught. Better make your plans for tomorrow (Sat) because a front is coming thru.
We have openings for offshore trips this Saturday (11/7). The king mackerel bite has been pretty darn good in the 65 to 80 foot range and the wahoo reports coming in have been quite impressive. The cost for an eight-hour king mackerel/grouper trip is $200 per person and we need at least four people for the trip. Gulf Stream trips will be $400 per person for a twelve-hour trip trolling for wahoo, blackfin tuna and maybe a stray mahi-mahi. We also need a minimum of four people for this trip. This time of the year can provide some of the best fishing our coast has to offer. Therefore, call up your long lost fishing buddies, pack your cooler and let’s go fishing. Call (910) 575-3474 to book your charter today. The fish are biting!
This is a Nicholas James Sizemore picture with Kevin Sneed of a 40= lb wahoo they caught today. I hope to be getting more pics and info.
Below is the updated leaderboard. It's not too late to join and it's certainly not too late to win.
The trout bite is picking up, the drum and flounder bite is still on so I'd give it a shot....Not to mention some nice kings still being caught. Speaking of which I know of 3 boats going out wahoo fishing tomorrow. We hope to have some posts.

We have had several inquiries earlier this year about our backwater fishing schools and if we were going to have anymore since they were all full. We had a rare cancellation that opened 2 spots for this last class. We now have two open slots for the November 7th Speckled Trout Class! We will have a short land class from 5 to 7pm on Friday night the 6th and then meet again on Saturday morning for 7 hours of instruction on the water. The cost is $300 per angler. This is not something you want to pass up if you have the opportunity. Below are pictures from some of our past backwater classes. The last picture is from this past Saturday afternoon. The trout bite is starting to happen and should be on fire by this weekend. Make that phone call, you won't regret it! See ya on the water!
Brandon and Clay are showing the drum action is still on and the trout bite is picking up. Brandon has a pair of catch and release 4.5 lb trout to end his weekend and Clay had some drum and a 6 lb trout. The OIFC is the HQ for live shrimp.
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
