"Vudu Mullet vs. Real Mullet" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/01/15
The vudu mullet produced some bites from trout yesterday and landed our keeper trout for us. Live mullet also produced some bites from trout getting our largest one right beside the boat before shaking the hook. Live mullet and mud minnows produced our bites from the redfish. The southwest wind was kicking so it was hard to see reds in the shallows, but we did see a few scattered fish. The roe mullet are thick and we did see some lonely black drum as well. I also saw a few smoke trails that appeared to be flounder. The water is warming up bringing more action to our water with each passing day. Come on out and enjoy the weather! See ya on the water!

"Caught a Few..." | Tiberias - 22' | 03/26/15
The backwater action is starting to pick up and we should start to see steady improvement over the next few weeks as the water continues to warm. Redfish are still the main species stirring in our waters with a few black drum and speckled trout hanging aroud as well. Some anglers have actually caught some flounder on the warmer days near low tide. That really is not uncommon this time of year, but I wouldn't say you could target them right now. If the warm weather stays with us Cherry Grove just might fire off about the 3rd week of April. We battled the east winds today, not only was it out of the east, but it really got cranking about mid day. We did manage to find a few reds pushing water in our first spot. They were stubborn, but we did snag one short, one slot fish, and one over the slot fish. We made several more moves searching high and low for redfish. We did manage to find a couple more schools with one school having quite a few fish in it. We managed a few cast before the school saw the boat and left the country. We found another small school of 15 to 20 fish and got another opportunity. Another nice slot fish probably around 24 inches released itself just out of dip net range. This school also found a good hiding spot and the east wind was slapping the hull pretty good by this time, so there was no sneaking back on them. We checked a few docks along the waterway with no luck. More fish should start to move in along the waterway any day now. See ya on the water!

"Hot vudu mullets" | | 03/23/15
The Oifc isn't big enough to carry every size and color of every lure, but we are expertise enough to know what lures in what sizes and colors you need to catch fish in this area: and thus we have all the Vudu Mullet you need, stocked and ready.
"Sea Bassin" | | 03/22/15
Fresh Sea Bass soon to be on menu at Fish Company thanks to Brayden McMullan,
Austin Aycock and Capt dad.
Thanks to all that have come to try out the new Ocean Isle a Fish Company and welcome to those who have not. There's a lot of pressure to produce and keep our customers with the freshest of fish on the menu, but we are working to continue that- fishing when you have to catch fish is different than going for fun. Brayden says this afternoon after we got back from fishing, "dad, can I go play in the sandbox? I've been working all day." That's from a 5 year old.

"Testing the Vudu Mullet" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/18/15
The backwater action is about what is expected for this time of year. Look hard for large groups of schooling fish and then go to work on them. One day they may bite and the next they just won't look at a bait. Yesterday, I did finally stumble up on a large school of reds and tested out the NEW! Vudu mullet. Either the reds were really hungry or the Vudu is no joke. Spring break and Easter weekend bookings are filling up fast so give us a call before it is too late. See ya on the water!

"Inshore action" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 03/16/15
Rick Roberts from Charlotte reported good redfish action in back creeks between Sunset and Little River. He caught a half dozen keeper size Reds and a few Trout on Gulp Shrimp in White and also New Penny colors. He reported action by working bait very slow along flats outside creek channels in 18-24" of water.
