"Time fish or at least talk fish" | OIFC | 02/08/14
 

Everyone seems to be stuck in the winter rut and nobody wants to go offshore so I thought should at least talk about what a trip would be like IF we were to go.

This time of year is a great time to go offshore as a full menu of opportunities are out there. Here's my battle plan.

[1] aprox 10 miles out start looking for big concentrations Ganets diving and if see them, throw out the Bluefiin Tuna gear. We had the Bluefins here several years ago, no reason why he's not back. Give it a shot.

[2] move on to 90 feet of water and load up on giant sized sea bass just to make sure dinner is secured.

[3] on to the break where winter wahoo fishing can be epic; also very good time of year to catch blackfin[mix a no alibi red/black feather in with your wahoo lures.]

[4] on the break and beyond to 250 feet of water, winter is absolutely the best time of year to deep jig for cobia/african pompano/ect/ect. You will not make a drop that something doesn't grab the jig that will try to pull you overboard.

[5] on way home repeat #2

 There you go, a great trip to the amazing winter fishing we have here, that nobody seems to want to do[on yeah, I am sitting by the fire as I write this]

Lets Go Fish!

I definitely think that is the wrong picture that's a old picture and that's not the one that's on his facebook





"Couple of things" | Do Work / OIFC | 02/01/14
 

Rodeo participants, I have not forgotten about the trophies & payouts.  I've have been out of town on an unexpected family emergency.  At this point I am not sure when I'll be back.

Shane Britt went commercial trout fishing and he saw no negative effects of the recent cold weather.  I fact he slammed the trout.

I hope this global warming event is over and that I will see you soon.

"2013 Gas Tax Refund" | OIFC | 01/30/14
 

This will probably come as a shock -- The NC Dept of Revenue has decided not to accept gas tax refund applications in a paper form, only via internet submission- OK.  However, as of today, the website needed to enter and apply for your 2013 Gas Tax Refund is NOT UP and NOT WORKING.  The OIFC is communicating with politicians and continuing efforts to get through to NC Dept of Revenue.  As of today, we have made a dozen or more calls, left that many messages and have yet to receive any word back.  I know this likley comes as a shock, so I am sorry for the disturbing news.  The OIFC will continue to try to figure out what is going on and hopefully help to open up the process SO WE CAN GET THE MONEY BACK THAT THE STATE OWES US.  I wonder if they will pay us interest and penalties on this money owed to us?

We suggest that you contact your local politician to make him aware that you are trying to file your Gas Tax Refund from 1201 but cannot due to the above.  If anyone has any information or news on this, please email info@oifc.com so that we may share the news.

In the mean time, we have the refund forms printed and ready to send to you.  We always try to include instructions on how to file for the refund, and thus we will give it another couple of weeks to see if something changes.  If not, we will go ahead and send the refund information to you by mid February regardless. 

On the bright side- this weekend's weather is looking good.  We are hoping to make an offshore trip on Saturday.  The temps are 50-60 and winds are called for light.  Wahoo and Blackfin fishing can be very good this time of year

"Giving" | Do Work / OIFC | 01/28/14
 

Most of the east coast was hit with an ice storm today and tonight.  The OIFC's Amanda Bennett took it upon herself to volunteer with The American Red Cross Brunswick Co. Shelter to assist people who had to leave their homes.  Earlier this year Amanda coordinated an American Red Cross Blood Drive for her Senior Project..  It was so successful the Red Cross had to turn people away.  Amanda continues the OIFC's goals of public service in Brunswick Co.

Amanda is a memer of Team OIFC/Do Work and was 2nd place Lady Angler in the U.S.Open this year.

"" | Tiberias - 22' | 01/26/14
 

The cold weather has really put a damper on keeping a fresh updated fishing report. The bite has been fair on the days that I have been motivated enough to battle with the conditions mother nature has dealt us lately. My last day on the water was January 15th in my kayak. I will share a few of those pictures. We are still seeing some mild conditions in between extremely cold conditions. This last cold spell and the one forecasted this week could be dangerous for the fish stocks. As you can see from one of our lastest reports the canals froze completely over in the dead end areas. We will be back out on the water as soon as the weather breaks to see if we can find any action. Meanwhile, keep warm by checking out two videos from this past season when the big bull reds were biting like crazy. See ya on the water!

"Winter Happenings" | Do Work / OIFC | 01/21/14
 

Miss Amanda broke away from her winter cleaning and organizing duties at the OIFC to enjoy Tuesday afternoon's rainbow.  I took off from my important duties of cleaning up the gifts Finn left me in the back yard, loving on my minnows and checking around the Ocean Isle Beach boat ramp to take the picture..  These are the slowest couple of months in the year.

Rickey, thanks for letting me point out a minor omission; since I got a 1099 from Capt Brant for my little winnings in the FOSO, i figured we may as well collect a few pieces of hardware! BlackDog Sportfishing is getting ready for the FOSO!





"Rodeo Update" | Do Work / OIFC | 01/17/14
 

The checks have been made out.  The trophies have been ordered and SHOULD be ready by the end of the week.  Capt. Brant & I plan on having an awards dinner at the Wing & Fish Company as soon as the trophies are complete and he get's back in town. We'll pass along the date shortly.

Miss. Amanda is planning a flounder tournament similiar to the trout tournament, with some fine tuning.  We've listened to y'alls comments and are working on improving each tournament.  Amanda plans on giving the details at the awards dinner.
