"OIFC No Limits Fishing TV Show" | OIFC | 03/10/14
 

Now you can watch past and present episodes of the OIFC No Limits Fishing TV Show at www.NoLimitsFishing.com

We are beginning filming now for the 2014 season which begins airing new episodes in mid May.  The TV show airs on local cable provider ATMC TV within Brunswick and Colombus counties-- THUS, it is quite possible that many of you have not seen the show.  Keep in mind this is our first attempt at doing a fishing show, so season one was certainly a learning process.  I will tell you that making a TV show out of fishing is kind of like fly fishing -- taking something that is all ready hard and making it harder!

"Tubbs Inlet" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/10/14
 

Yesterday afternoon was so pretty that Capt. Papa D, aka Capt. Rickey and I decided to check Tubbs Inlet out on our 17 ft skiff 'Tale Chaser",  Folks believe me when I say it has changed.  We went on a mid tide and there were still sand bar growth that hindered navigation.  It was OK going in until we got to he 1st set of docks.  The bar has extended and narrrowed that channel.  It has also filled in along the beach and it appeared there was a bar at the ocean entrance that could be walked on from Sunset to Ocean Isle.  My advice to to explore it using caution.   We hope to get some low tide pictures soon.  Click on this link for a video posted on our FB page of our trip in.  Below are just random shots for people who haven't been able to get out.  But one shows a sand bar at mid tide and the other is of dredging in a Sunset Beach canal.

They are big because they are Cero's,not Spanish. Cero's average a little bigger than Spanish.

Decoy 03/09/2014

In Panama they called them "sierra mackerel", does anybody know if they are "cero mackerel" "sierra mackerel" or just big Spanish?? Just curious.....





"Costa Rica" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/08/14
 

Larry Spainhour and his wife Becky have been in Coasta Rica.  They have been out fishing a couple of times with little luck.  He is Larry's account of the latest trip. 3rd time was the charm. Fished with my only mate of 46 years. Got to experienced the epic Costa Rica sailfish bite. In first 90 minutes raised 8 sails and caught 4 , 2 on a double. This was Becky's. Also caught a 40 lb mahi.

"Spring Kickoff" | Real-Time Update | 03/08/14
 

Reminder that Spring Kickoff is next Saturday. I will post schedule again but basically 10am-3pm. I've been getting a lot of interest in used tackle sale forum. It's pretty much an open forum. You bring your stuff and your own table and manage your own sales. The OIFC is the meeting point. Based on early season fishing talks, it seems there are more people getting back into offshore fishing and looking to update equipment. There may be some good used options if you are in the market. Line spooling too. Mono at $.02/yd and braid at $.10/yd - $.15/yd. AND the big kicker, FREE seminar instruction from Capt. Brant and OIFC staff. See you there this coming Saturday, March 15th.

New OIFC X-Large, 65” x 20” x 20” Triangle base fish bag.  NO MORE fighting to squeeze in bags of ice and then wrestling with zippers to close, not to mention when you actually catch fish to go in the bag.  This new bag was designed by Capt. Brant to alleviate the hassle of a two-dimensional fish bag.  Now there is the new three-dimensional, triangle base bag with tons of room to put ice or fish, it stands up on its own and strategic zipper placement allows for easy drainage of excess water to keep your catch dry and fresh.  $149.95 *wife not included

"Shallotte Inlet Dredging" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/04/14
 

The dredging of Shallotte Inlet is underway full steam ahead. At this point I don't have that much info except they are cutting a channel about 15 ft deep and depositing the sand of the beach as part of the beach renourishment project. Capt. Jeff of the "OIFC/Do Work" Contender went out Sunday sea bass fishing he returned on a new moon low tide and said the sand bar outside the inlet was not an issue. The pictures are courtesy of Butch Myers, Jeff Beck & Richie Heycock. Here is a link to the Town of Ocean Isle Beach for more info on this project, the dredging of the Shallotte ICW Intersection and the Concrete Canals. —

Terminal groin project progressing....many many government hoops to jump through.

Capt. Rickey 03/05/2014

Jay I am supposed to talk with Mayor Debbie Smith about the dredging tomorrow. I will try and remember to ask her if she knows anything about the groins.

Jay 03/05/2014

Are they considering groins still? Wish they could anchor the cans better! Thanks for the update.





"Internet Fishing" | Hail Yeah / OIFC | 03/04/14
 

Seems like the weather is out to get us this year.  Just when we think we have turned the corner, we get blasted with another brutal cold front.  Capt. Jeff Beck and his crew were smart, they took advantage of the small window in the weather this past weekend and were rewarded with a real nice catch of seabass.  The only fishing I have been able to do so far this year is on the internet.  I check into the OIFC report about 5 times a day hoping that someone was able to get on the water.  I also have found that a lot of fishing teams throughout the Carolina's have started facebook pages.  So, all you facebook fans can troll around for a little more fishing action.  Team OIFC has several teams with pages.  Check out Hail Yeal/OIFC fishing team, Choice of Two/OIFC fishing team, Get Floor'd/OIFC fishing team and the Ocean Isle Fishing Center on Facebook.

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 03/03/14
 

Redfish are biting pretty good considering the up and down weather pattern. Some small trout have come out of hiding with a slight increase in water temperature with last week's warm up. Chartreuse colored soft plastics have worked the best for locating trout and an occassional redfish. I expect the trout will shut down again after this cold front passing us this week. Keep in mind that speckled trout are closed for harvest until June 15th. Adding a little pro-cure scent to your favorite soft plastics seem to get the redfish fired up. Remember that the water is cold...very slow to no retrieve will get the bite from a redfish. Join our facebook page to see more reports and pictures. See ya on the water.

"Sea Bass Sunday" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/02/14
 

All the reports and the forecast for smooth seas had me ready to go fishing.  While at Crossfit OIB, I spoke with a friend and he said that he was going to take his son sea bass fishing on Sunday for his birthday.  I told him to meet me at the OIFC and we would run offshore and try to make it a fun day.  So Greg, his son Pierce and Pierce's friend Ethan loaded up on the Do Work with Camdyn and myself. We dodged the dredge and set our sites for 65 foot of water to one of my favorite King Fish spots.  We made 35 mph the entire way.  Once we arrived, we dropped our baits and caught all the 10 to 12 inchers we wanted.  I picked up and moved us about .4 miles offshore and found it to be stacked with 14 to 18 inchers.  So we stayed there and caught all the fish we wanted.  Pierce, Ethan and Camdyn proved to be quite the sea bass catching crew.  Happy Birthday, Pierce!  Hopefully it will be one to remember.

"Bluefin alert!!!" | OIFC | 02/28/14
 

Bluefin alert; well sorta. The word from the salty of the salty-est Bluefin fishermen up at Oregon Inlet is the Bluefin are holding in deeper water offshore of the Point. And historically speaking when this occurs and they don't move into the shallower waters around the Point, the Bluefin will move south and end up from Morehead south, down to the west side of Cape Fear. West side of Cape Fear is us[Shark Hole/Horeshoe/ect]. And today I walked out to the beach and just off the breakers was a huge school of menhaden with Ganents and porpoises working them. SO................... this justifies a Bluefin alert!. If heading off to wahoo fish, if you see the right conditions, throw your Bluefin gear out and be a hero. Everyone remembers several years ago when we were catching more Bluefin off Ocean Isle than was being caught off Morehead. Let's get excited!

"Tile Fish Thursday" | Do Work / OIFC | 02/27/14
 

From the Wing and Fish Company in downtown Shallotte:

How about Tilefish Thursday? And since we missed it yesterday, we'll move Wahoo Wednesday to Wahoo Thursday. The fishing has been very good this week for us and that means good food on your plate! Today for lunch is a wahoo sandwich fried or grilled. Don't get no better than that.

Tonight we are proud to offer fresh off the boat Golden Tilefish. Chef is working up a recipe he calls seasoned sea salt, golden tilefish topped with a scratch made mango chutney. You won't find seafood product like this, well, pretty much anywhere. It was on my hook a short time of ago and now it's on your plate. Enjoy! See Capt. Brant and Brayden doing work on a beautiful golden tile.
