From my experience I have determined anglers and sportsmen/ladies are some of the best stewards of our environment. As an example, most readers of this report are familiar with Brandon Sauls. Today Brandon joined a group in an ICW trash sweep. He said "man what an eye opener it was. We worked a 300 yd section of the Waterway and came up with 12+ bags of trash and debris. Take care of our environment people"
Thank you Brandon and thanks to everyone who participated. I wish I had known about it.
The spanish pictured below were caught off OIB in 20 to 30 ft of water in about 30 minutes by the crew of the Cannon Ball with Capt. Howard Cheek this past Wednesday. Thanks for the report Capt.
Bob Newell said that even though they were out of the FOSO because of motor trouble they still had a great day Sunday mahi fishing from the Black Jack to the 100/400. They even had a white marlin in the spread.
Picture 3 is of the crew of the "Reel Relief" fishing their FOSO Tournament Day..
Doug Montgomery sent the picture of the white marlin his brother Capt "Boomer" Montgomery caught out of Little River. Could this have been the same white marlin?
We love our GooRube. Fishing is just not enough fun by itself. Thanks dad!
This is Frank Johnson and the crew of the Emma Rose. They were leading the Far Out Shoot Out as of Wednesday morning.
It seems like only yesterday Katelyn Kinser came to work at the OIFC. Now she has graduated from college. We have watched her grow from a high school cheerleader to an Honor Student at UNC Wilmington to now a college graduate. In between she grew very close to Carolyn, Brayden McMullan and Camdyn Beck and has now become "KK". She has captured the hearts of all the "OIFC Family" This summer KK is managing the boat and jet ski rentals. Stop by and congratulate KK!!!!
Look what store "Team Leader" Shannon Reel caught today aboard the "Reel Wet". So if you want any flounder fishing tips from the OIFC she's the go to person! Shannon is going to fill in the details on the comment section.
Members of Team OIFC/Do Work, Capt. Jeff, 1st mate Camdyn and I were thrilled to be invited to fish the Far Out Shoot Out with Mike Kennerly of Ocean Isle Beach aboard his 31 ft Cape Horn "The Blue Pearl". Like everyone else we fished 65 miles off shore in the 150 to 168 range of water depth. We used small ballyhoo fished with different colors of Blue Water Candy lures. There was no special color.
What made us proud was Camdyn reeled a 17 lb mahi in by herself, as she did several others, she gaffed her 1st fish and caught her 1st black fin tuna. Tuesday looks good so I'd plan on going then. We had fun and hope you are too..
The picture below is from a friend Sean Conley. Sean wrote...This is what ethanol based gas does to the fuel lines in a boat. The inside of the pump bulb is disolving and pieces of it stopped up all but one cylinder in my dad;s outboard on his pontoon boat.
