"Backwater School" | Tiberias - 22' | 09/29/15
 

Will Glover, Alex Sasser, and Will McKnight joined me for my first backwater school for the fall season. We met Friday evening for quick instruction on cast netting, casting, and techniques. We hit the water Saturday to see if the students could take what they learned in the classroom to the water. Will McKnight was the first to prove he had been listening as he landed our first flounder. We found enough flounder on a couple of stops for every angler to get a feel for the technique. We changed gears to target black drum and like most rookies they missed their first couple. However, the bite was strong and the students quickly grasped the technique putting some nice black drum in the boat. Some redfish joined the action while we were catching black drum and that pretty much covered the classroom materail. I took a few minutes to show my students where to locate bait. We quickly found plenty of live shrimp, big mullet, and a nice menhaden pod. With all livewells over flowing with bait and a fish box busting at the seams. It was time to head for the jetties to graduate these green horns. We were a little light on tackle for the big brutes, but we did manage to close our day out going 3 for 5 on the bulls. To sign up for one of our schools please call the Fishing Center 910 575 3474. See ya on the water!

"Rumble in the Jungle tournament winner" | | 09/28/15
 

Dr. Kendal Suh and team of the Fishin' Physicial from Ocean Isle wins 1st and David Hooks (Capt. Hook) from Ocean Isle wins 2nd. Way to go guys! Dr. Suh responded after an email of congratulations: Thanks for the congrats. Yep she burned it down heading offshore, so there was no question what I had on the end of the line. I was worried about it getting in to other boats. Yep I hope it holds up but at least we were first for a day. We were blessed to have one good bite! Earlier in the morning, we got swarmed with 30 pound Redfish that hit 5 out of 6 lines and messed everything up. It was like a school of amberjacks on attack mode they came up to the top to attack. Never had that happen before. It would have been great fun if we weren't fishing a King Tournament. Yesterday, we were trying to get blues and got absolutely smoked on a Clark Spoon on a planer. I was thinking Tarpon but there were no jumps so I eliminated Tarpon. Then, I was thinking smoker king but it didn't cut the line so I eliminated King. Then I was thinking False Albacore because it was darting all over the place. I had to get on plane to catch up to the fish! Then when we got him near the boat a giant Tarpon around 150 pounds jumped when it saw the boat. He jumped about 8 times right at the boat and put on an aerial show that would shame circus acrobats. Yep on a Clark spoon. We leadered him and were going to release him when the Clark Spoon hook finally straightened and released him. Capt. Brant McMullan www.OIFC.com (910) 575-3474

"Backwater Action" | Tiberias - 22' | 09/28/15
 

The bull redfish action is not the only action in town. I do wish I could have concentrated a little more on the bull reds, but the wind and wave action has been a bit much. I have run the majority of my trips in the creeks and the action has not disappointed. Black drum are hanging around the Sunset Beach area in the deeper holes and flounder are still biting in Tubbs Inlet. It is that time of year that no matter what decision you make you are bound to find some action. On a really good day you can catch a few in the creek to eat and then hit the inlet for a trophy. Bait is thick, you can just about catch it blind folded. Mullet and menhaden are all over the waterway. Shrimp is abundant at low tide in front of just about every little muddy cut in the grass. Lets go get them! See ya on the water!

"Reds Still Biting" | Do Work / OIFC | 09/27/15
 

The drum bite is still on at the Jetties.  So if you aren't into the king action give the drum a shot.  Reminder, be careful handling them.  Don't hol them vertically, just carefully in a horizontal position.

Below are Virginia Beckham, her boyfriendAndy Traynham, Eddy Jone and Brandon Sauls' girls and friend enjoying the day.

"Traveling Fishermen" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/24/15
 

I’m going to go ahead and let the cat out of the bag on this one – this fall I will be reintroducing the traveling fishermen program out of the OIFC. Scheduling and pricing are still being determined but some great destinations are being researched. Venice, LA, Guatemala, and Panama are just a few that are on the list to be visited. If you have any interest in fishing at these destinations please email me at djt3521@uncw.edu. As stated above, pricing and agendas have not been set in stone. However, I hope to have the first trip’s pricing ready for public interest by the end of this weekend. Stay tuned

"Bay Creek Flounder tournament last weekend " | | 09/23/15
 

Bad news for all you Flounder fishermen out there- Capt Brant has tasted Flounder tourney glory and now I'm thirsty for more! This past weekend i was the "celebrity" guest aboard Capt. Al Fulford's " Flounder Nutzs" along with his teammate Jeremy Ridenhour. Fortunately for me Theresa Fulford who is the normal third crew member was on duty back on land in expectation of a brand new grand baby (which was born the day after the tournament). Anyway as the story goes, Al and Jeremy showed me up all day as together they caught 8 Flounder to my none. It was a great learning experience as these guys know what they are doing. But most important and what I've found consistent with all of the most successful fishing teams; they work. All day from lines in until lines out they were fishing hard. We were fishing for the heaviest 5 fish aggregate as well as big fish. At 4pm we had 4 keepe Flounder in the box from 15-17". We worked hard but the conditions were very tough with 20 knots of north east wind. Anyway we made one last move at 4pm. We had 15 minutes to fish before making a dash to make the 4:30 weigh-in. Al pointed me in a direction and I finally redeemed myself, adding a 3.5 pounder to the ledger. We made the scales with minutes to spare and weighed up as the only team to post their 5 fish limit; 2nd overall aggregate and 6th big fish. Not bad in my world. I had a good time with Al and Jeremy and thank them for letting me come along. I don't think they have to worry about me as competition but at least I proved I can hang. Never give up! More important- this tournament is out on as a benefit and hosted by Brandon Matthews of Southport. Brandon is an inspiration to me and should be to anyone who thinks they have endured physical challenges. Brandon fell from a deer stand probably close to 10 years ago and was paralyzed and stricken to a wheel chair for the rest of his life. Brandon is a hard core fisherman and his love for fishing remains but certainly his ability to participate is impacted. Regardless, he and his family fight on to live a good life, raise their children and stay active within the community. The Bay Creek tournament raises funds that Brandon desperately needs to help his family. The tournament had close to 50 boats participating. Thanks to all who fished and I hope we can help propel this event even further with more support from the southern Brunswick County fishermen. Here are a couple of pics and the leaderboard. Capt. Brant McMullan

thanks KG imo. there are not enough tarpon in this area to really target,but I will say I was king fishing with smaller pogies than normal and no skirts.I was trying to hold him high enough to get a good picture when he decided he wanted a selfie lol.and then he swam away.

Tarpon girl 09/24/2015

Definitely not a healthy release if it was brought into the boat. Sad...

KG 09/24/2015

Can you through a newby a bone and tell us how to fish for tarpon around the inlets? Bucket list fish for sure.

"Year end maintenance " | OIFC | 09/23/15
 

I'm adding an internal salt cleanse to year end clean up jobs for rental boats. Capt Rickey said it helped his boat to allow better internal engine cooling- makes sense. Like an enema for your engine!

"Jetties Drum" | Do Work / OIFC | 09/20/15
 

Clay Morphsis fished with Davis Julian and wor the big reds out at the Jeties this morning while Eddie and Edward fished for blues.  My crew headed out but the bite had shut down.

****Word to the wise.  Be sure to have your S. C. Fishing License if you fish there.  The DNR was checking today in an unmarked boat that looked like everyone else.  Got to give them respect, they are protecting our resource.

Meanwhile, Back at the dock, Capt. Papa'd and Brian Lovinggood were installling the new sound system on the Do Work/OIFC Contender.

"Bulls R Showing Up" | Tiberias - 22' | 09/19/15
 

Thanks for the Report Joe!

~~Cpt. Jacob, you were right! Z breeze hit it again around noon time today...dale & I each caught our first bulls of the season. Fished it the way you showed me 2 years ago in the penny pincher! I appreciate it! Joe, z-breee....

It is going to be a bit breezy over the next few days, but once it calms a bit the bite is going to be on fire folks. Joe and Dale braved the wave action yesterday and pulled a few out. We need more North in this wind and no East winds so we can get after them. I am chomping at the bit myself and can't wait. Come on down! See ya on the water!

"All Alone" | Do Work / OIFC | 09/19/15
 

~~Daniel Simmons, Mike Ashburn, and I took off for a late afternoon recon mission looking for big drum. We pulled up to the rocks with a boatload of bait and were all alone. After a few hours of bent rods, the tally was at least a dozen safely released with half of the fish measuring over 40".  It's on!!
