"An Active Weekend " | Do Work / OIFC | 05/21/17
 

The OIFC/OIB folks had a busy weekend!  The 1st picture is of Captain Zach Faulkner who, along with his dad Benji, cousin Jess and Team Get Floor'd/OIFC teammate Richie landed this 194 lb big eyed tuna at Oregon Inlet yesterday. This will be the site of the Kingfish Cup Finals. Picture 2 is Leff Frick and the trophy his team name is inscribed on for the Farout Shootout. Picture 3 is Greg Hanson "Calabash Creamery" and a red he boated. The last picture is a selfie of me in front of Al Gore's vacation home at Figure Eight Island. Some friends gave me a ride on this beautiful weekend while I'm rehabbing   The last picture is Capt Zach & Richie at the OIFC.

"Shoot Out update" | OIFC | 05/17/17
 

4 boats fished today.  The big shake up came from the Sea Bandit team who weighed an aggregate of 67.8 pounds to take 2nd place; their catch was anchored by a 36lb Wahoo.  They also released a Blue Marline and thus are members of the Don Leondard Memorial Billfish Award.  Also the Conference Call team weighed a 34.25lb Mahi to take the lead in that species division.

At this moment we have 32 boats registered.  Two are set to fish tomorrow thus far.  Entry remains open, but Friday, May 19th is the last day to enter.  Go to www.OIFC.com/FOSO to see complete weigh-in results and whose entered and to enter yourself.

"Shoot Out update" | OIFC | 05/16/17
 

30 BOATS NOW AND COUNTING........The total overall primary prize purse is now in excess of $13,500, Big fish TWT has $3570 in it and High Roller TWT has $5500 in it.

Today we had 7 boats fish, and only 3 weighed in.  What was supposed to be a 2' sea and light winds was apparently a 4' Northeast chop.

4 boats have declared for Wednesday thus far.

Registration remains open through Friday, May 19th  (www.oifc.com/foso) with the last fishing day as Saturday, May 20th.  Team Sea P.A. is clinging to the lead with a 70 pound, 3 fish aggregate but they got a scare today from the No Quarters team who weighed the biggest fish of the event thus far, a 37 pound Wahoo.

Inaugural Ron McManus Memorial Fishing Tournament Slated for Memorial Day Weekend

North Myrtle Beach, SC— The Inaugural Ron McManus Memorial Fishing Tournament, a fundraising fishing tournament honoring North Myrtle Beach businessman and avid fisherman, Ron McManus, is scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28, 2017, at Harbourgate Marina in North Myrtle Beach.

The Ron McManus Memorial Fishing Tournament, whose major sponsors are Sandhills Bank, Sportsman’s Choice, Mama Jean’s, Captain Archie’s and the City of North Myrtle Beach, is the first of what will be an annual mixed species fishing tournament and fundraiser that attracts fishermen from all over the United States. This two-day tournament will also feature the 2017 Flounder Frenzie sponsored by the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce.

Entry fees for the Ron McManus Memorial Fishing Tournament are $100 for the Inshore Division, and $200 for the Offshore Division, with additional fees for the Flounder Frenzie.  The event features over $20,000 in cash and prizes. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Ron McManus Artificial Reef Foundation which supports PA-04, the Ron McManus Artificial, located five miles from the Little River Inlet’s south jetty.

When Ron McManus organized the Dixie Chicken Funament in 2000 to honor his friend and fishing buddy, Jim Caudle, he had no idea that it would become one of the East Coast’s most popular fishing tournaments.  Nor did he realize the impact that the tournament would have on South Carolina's economy and its ecosystem.  In less than a decade, the proceeds from this small but powerful tournament turned the Little River Inshore Reef, renamed the Jim Caudle Artificial Reef, into South Carolina’s second largest and most visited artificial reef, a ranking still maintained thanks to Ron.

The Dixie Chicken ran for 10 years cut short by Ron’s illness and subsequent death.

Now, it seems only fitting that the tournament be reintroduced--this time as the Ron McManus Memorial Fishing Tournament honoring Ron and the good work that he has done.  While the name has changed, some things remain constant--take for instance the fun and comradery, not to mention the excellent fishing.

“Nothing would please Ron more than to know that this tournament is being held in his honor,” said Chip Floyd, Tournament Director. “Ron’s spirit lives among us.”

For details on the Ron McManus Memorial Fishing Tournament visit ronmcmanusreef.com/fishingtournament or call Tournament Director, Chip Floyd at 843-597-3479

"Red Hot Gulf Stream Action" | Catch All | 05/13/17
 

The gulf stream action is officially in full swing off our coast. On wednesday 5/10, a warm water current finally decided to push closer to spots we normally fish and with it came dolphin, blackfin tuna, and wahoo. Pictured below on left is long time customer and friend, John Holmes and his crew. On right is Jim Hutchinson's crew from Monday 5/8. Great job crews.

"Bonecrusher's Blue Water Return" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/10/17
 

I'm back on the blue water circuit!  My first trip of the year with Nesbitt Noble, Blake Stone and Gary resulted in catching a ~450lb blue marlin!  Fought the fish for over 2 hours on a 30 Tiagra.  13 dolphin and a handful of trigger fish.  Not a bad day.

Is that about a 60 mile ride out from OIB? How many miles do you estimate out, back and trolling?
