"Update" | | 05/28/14
 

I updated the Rodeo Leader Board. I haven't posted the $ yet but it looks like we are ahead of last year Also I've been busy tying a newly designed more beginner friendly flounder Carolina Rig. Capt Jeff Beck & I used something similar to it when we were on the inshore flounder tournament trail & were very successful! I hope to have the 1st batch out today Sent from my iPhone

"Gulf Stream frenzy" | | 05/27/14
 

The Gulf Stream provided the OIFC offshore boats with some action this weekend. Sean Morris and I set out for the MacMarlen hole on Sunday and we were rewarded upon arrival. Blackfin tuna were particularly abundant that day. When they weren't seen feeding on the surface they were hooked up to our green machine set way back. Mitch and Danielle Hodge, David Wilson and Allen Andrews did a fantastic job fighting the tuna and also some decent size Mahi. The Mahi action is still hot and heavy if you can find the right conditions and weed lines. These fish should bite through the end of this month and into the first couple weeks of June before they completely disperse inshore. Take advantage of the action while it's here! Capt. Derek Treffinger

"Redfish Tourney Woes" | OIFC | 05/27/14
 

I'm going to have to do a recap of the last couple days at another time.  I'm beat up, wet, tired and if that wasn't enough, the fish are being very uncooperative from what is normal down here. 

I've traveled 300+ miles in the last two days.  Still a lot of work to do before the tournament begins Thursday.  The weather is tough.  A low pressure system looks to be developing right on top of us. 

We've been to Venice, LA and now are back in Biloxi.  We caught some and saw some but not enough and not the right ones.  Everybody seems to be struggling but I'm sure they'll get found.  Standby for a more detailed report once I get myself put back together.

"Royal Slam" | Hail Yeah / OIFC | 05/27/14
 

I got a couple of texts today about a friend catching a white marlin off of OIB and it reminded me that I was supposed to be looking for a pic I had of another white marlin.  I will post the details of Kurt Cross' white marlin once I get the "rest of the story". 

In the meantime,  I finally found this pic from a couple of years ago when Jeff Beck, Brant McMullan, Barrett McMullan and I fished a billfish tourney out of Biloxi. I should probably save it for a TBT but it's too cool not to share. In the pic are Barrett McMullan and a white marlin. This is not just an ordinary white marlin, but a record book worthy white marlin. This was the final billfish Barrett needed to complete the "Royal Slam" and get his name in the IGFA record books. An angler completes the Royal Slam by catching all 9 billfish of the world. This accomplishment has to be one of the toughest of all sportfishing quests.

"Kings" | | 05/27/14
 

Lydia Hunt, her father William and fiance Preston Moore joined First Mate Sean Morris and myself aboard the World Cat for a half day of fun. We began fishing in 55 feet of water and it wasn't long before the downrigger rod began screaming. After working the fish to within sight it was found to be a shark. As Sean worked on releasing the doggie our medium rod was struck. The run was definitely different from the usual dog shark run. Sure enough a nice king came along side and Sean found his mark with the gaff. For the remainder of our trip everyone stayed busy.Two more kings were boated and a couple more released as well as a.few more dog sharks to kelp us busy. Thanks to our crew for a job well done.

"Double Action!!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/27/14
 

Dennis and Colleen joined me yesterday for a early morning trip. We started off drifting for flounder and quickly went to work landing short flounder. We changed technique by anchoring and slowly dragging live menhaden, but could not get a flounder to commit. We made a move and changed our target. Two chunks of fresh crab and it was redfish on! While taking pictures of our first fish another rod got hammered. I quickly made another cast just behind the fish Dennis was hooked up with and Colleen was hooked up almost immediately. It was double action, double fun, and my crew was exhausted. It was time to head for the barn and get some grub. Thanks Dennis and Colleen for a great day! See ya on the water!

"Today's Action" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/26/14
 

Bon Newel of the "Black Dog"l reported there was pretty good action at the Same Ole Hole.  They went off shore looking for a blue marlin most of the afternoo.  He said the blue water was 78 degrees with lots of bait but no wahoo,  I apologize for not having your name in my phone Bob.  I do now :).

Then Sid Cauble reported he and his brother Jamey (Total Chaos) caught  2 nice kings Sunday.  They found bait west of the inlet.  They caught their kings on the top in  74 degree 80-90 ft deep water.  The big fish was 36.5 and the smaller king was 30.

The shark picture was taken today by Karen Jones, wife of "OIFC/Choice of Two" Eddy Jones as they fished aboard the "OIFC/Do Work" Contender today with their daughter Sidney & the Beck's minus Capt. Papa D.

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/26/14
 

The backwater/inshore guys have been absent from reporting lately. I apologize as the schedule has been pretty tight lately. We have you guys to thank for that and we really appreciate the business. The skinny water has been a little slow at times. Plenty of small flounder hanging around to jiggle a line and some nice redfish that will eventually bend a rod. We have shuffled around this weekend in an attempt to find action. Spanish mackerel and sharks provided the best action on Sunday. Trolling 00 clarkspoons at 7mph around the inlet mouth between 18 to 25 feet of water should load the boat with Spanish mackerel. Drift a big menhaden on the bottom to find the sharks. Inside, the flounder are hitting mud minnows pretty good with only a few keepers in the mix. Plenty of peanut menhaden around the Ocean Isle Marina, but the flounder have not really warmed up to them for some reason. We had several good flounder bumps today on menhaden, but they would not fully commit to eating them. They will come around. The redfish finally cooperated today, crab chunks and menhaden were working good. The season is upon us and the fishing action should continue to heat up. See ya on the water!

Just a recap of Sundays action on the World Cat. We departed Shallotte Inlet shortly after 6am and headed toward MacMarlen Ledge. When we got to 125 feet of water we deployed our lines and began trolling toward the Ledge. About 20 minutes into fishing we had our first mahi. As we continued to work the area, we came across a school of Blackfin in about 165 feet. The rest of the day was a period of calm followed by double and triple strikes of mahi and tuna. We ended the day by jigging in 170 feet of water and being rewarded with a nice grouper. Thanks to Gil Carol and the rest of his group in giving Ben and me a fun filled day on the OIFC World Cat.

"Happy Place" | OIFC | 05/25/14
 

I'm sitting here writing this report at my home away from home, my happy place, The Golden Nuggett in Biloxi, MS.  The influx of Memorial Day visitors sent me running for the high country!  It's been a busy a couple weeks.  Birth a baby- check; stock up the Wing & Fish Co with fish- check; survive Memorial Day Weekend madness- check.  I'm outta here!

I hate leaving OIB when the fishing and weather is so good but the second event in the HT Redfish Elite Series is this week out of Biloxi so it was time to head south.  I checked out of OIB this morning and met up with Gu Rube outside ATL.  We continued on and made it to Biloxi in time to eat dinner at Michael Patrick's bar and pay homage to our 74lb Kingzilla that resides at the bar.  Tomorrow begins prefishing.  Rube has been hearing my stories and had to get a first hand experience so he is on board for the prefishing.  Our plan is to leave out of Biloxi in the morning and then fish our way across to Venice.  We'll stay in Venice tomorrow night and fish from there on Tuesday.  Wednesday we'll come back across Mississippi sound and end up in Biloxi.  I'll be back on my own for the tournament which is Thursday and Friday. 

Oh boy, here we go again.  It's a process.  Got to find fish then got to find the right size fish.  One step at a time.

By the way, for you SKA guys reading this, I know I may be partial, but you guys are going to be pleasantly surprised with the transformation of the Golden Nugget.  This place has received an incredible makeover since we were here last.  It is now a true destination.  Several new restaurants, new design, new staff, new pool area.  This place is awesome.

"Today's Action" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/25/14
 

Brandon Sauls and Kyle Hughes took advantage of todays flat seas and ventured out in a bay boat.  Theier efforts were repayed with 2 cobia and some Jacks.

Meanwhile the Team OIFC/Do Work went shark fishing at the 460.  The pogies were thick between the OIB water tower on the west end and the high rise.  We found them in 10 feet deep water by locating a dirty spot on water and our side scan sonar.  Unlike yesterday there were no birds working. But one throw of a Capt. Brant's Custom Cast Net filled the bait well.

"Have a Safe Memorial Day Weekend" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/23/14
 

The picture below is OIFC Pro-Staff Member Brandon Sauls showing his respect for those who made the unlimate sacrifice protecting our freedom.

Reports state there have already been 14 deaths on N.C. waters so far this year.  This figure is equal to the total for last year.  All the evidence is not in but it is felt by officials alcohol was involved in many of these deaths.  PLEASE BE CAREFUL and remember not to drink and boat!

Stop by and say hello!!
