"Collin Noble's 1st King" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/30/13
 

Collin Noble of Ocean Isle Beach was born into a family of fishing.  He is destined to join the local group of youth to be, as THE Captain Brant would say, "a force to be reckoned with".

Collin fished aboard his dad's, Nesbitt Noble's Privateer, the Wide Spread with friends Trask Cunningham and Corey Bailey.  Among the sail fish and other species the crew caught and was reported on earlier, Collin caught his 1st king which weighed 28 lbs.

Congratulations Collin and I am sure we'll be seeing you fishing tournaments as the junior angler with your mom Beck and your dad.

"Spade Fish" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/30/13
 

This is a picture of Brian Richard of Shallotte with a couple of healthy spade fish caught outside the Little River jetties w/ Robert Hughes & Todd Helf, aboard Todd's new 22' Panga "C Scout.

Anyone who knows about catching spade fish feel free to comment and share your methods.  I have tried and never caught one.  I do know that jelly balls will stain the mess out of your boat!

Per Ask a Captain here's the how: net a couple jelly balls outside the inlet. Put them in a 5 gallon bucket. Go to artificial reef/wreck. Take a coat hanger and run it thru jelly ball[while ball is in the bucket]. Take out of bucket[use bucket to transfer outside of your boat] and attach to your downrigger. drop to bottom. When you see your downrigger bouncing, slowly raise it to surface. spades will follow it to surface. Take a small hook, small piece of jelly ball, 12lb floro, and place bait around floating jelly ball so your bait drifts toward ball. Hang on! Keep a couple to eat; release the rest as you can wipe out the covey if you don't restrain yourself. Great fight; great fun.

"AJ Rutherford's First SPANISH ..." | Real-Time Update | 07/29/13
 

AJ Rutherford 12 years old of Raleigh was fishing with friends and family in front of Holden Beach Monday afternoon. We were trolling in twenty foot of water when this 23” Spanish fell for a silver Clark Spoon. AJ was extremely excited about his first Spanish Mackerel catch. Parents, Alex and Joy cleaned and cooked it up for supper. Congratulations AJ!! **** ** Thanks for posting,**** ** Brian Buchanan

"A Star Is Born!!!!" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/29/13
 

Sunday, a magician who was a finalist in America's Got Talent stopped for fuel at the OIFC.  When he saw our young and beautiful Miss Amanda he was imediately smitten by her beauty and raw talent.  He asked her to run away with him to Vagas and become his assistant.  She looked around the OIFC, recalling the experiences she has had and with a tear in her eye told him she could not leave her "fishing family".  The obviously distraught magician tweeted good bye and in a POOF escaped on his yellow jet ski. Below are some pictures of our almost famous Amanda taken on a recent trip aboard the "Hail Yeah".

Majic Man must have really been upset because at one point I found Amanda on her hands and knees hiding behind the counter, like Fin, then she started speaking with a Chinese accent and I heard that today she had a rubber band caught on her head. I hope he doesn't turn her into an animal..like a Wild Honeybadger. They are mean!!!





"5 o'clock Somewhere" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/29/13
 

They way the Beeracuda fishing team is rolling this year it may be 5 o'clock for them wherever they are!

Team Beeracuda filed this report about the sail fish picture:

I took our lady angler and my wife Courtney and our son Carson out for a few hour fun trip on the 26th to the 390s. We caught 3 Spanish over 4 pounds and then a our mid flat line went off and this guy put on a show. It was Courtney's first sailfish and she did a great job angling him. He was release beside the boat to fight another day!

Timothy filed the following about the trip they had on the 27th..the remaining pictures are from that trip.....Overall a good day with great weather. We took a first timer with us and she had a great time. We boated 4 kings and a cobia and she would have had a citation for her first king as he tail whipped it at the boat!! Here is a shot of a double hook up of mate Tyler Lancaster and Lady Angler Courtney Gray.

*******I'm not getting lazy, but the anglers do a heck of a lot better jobs on their reports than I do..Thanks everybody.  Ya'll are probably knocking this reporter out of a job..I did not say!!!

Keep your pictures and reports coming to me at sunset69@atmc.net, and a big THANK YOUUUU!!!

"Lady's trip" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 07/29/13
 

Amy McMullan, Katelyn Kincer and Debra Lathem made up the all ladies team today. My sole Job was drive the boat while Chris Campbell did the filming. I knew it was going to be a special trip when our first bite came only Minutes into fishing; a seagull hooked in the foot off the long line. The ladies did a good job and the kings cooperated. Good job ladies! Capt. Brant McMullan OIFC

"SAILFISH at the 90's. AGAIN ..." | Real-Time Update | 07/29/13
 

Captain William Parker and I headed out in my boat yesterday A.M. We caught Pogeys in 15 ft. water just off OIB East End. We kept some extra Pogeys for fresh chum, and headed off to the 90's in rough seas. We were targeting large Spanish using slow-trolling King lures, and sure enough, they were everywhere, but slow biting. We managed to boat some good-sized Spanish (5.1 lbs, 4 lbs, etc.). The first large one burned down the Speedmaster just like a King and fought all the way to the boat; it even looked like a King until we got it up. It will eat well, no doubt! A little later I was checking the lines, and with long-line (naked Pogey) in hand, a Sailfish hit hard and ran wild, putting on a spectacular made-for-TV show, skying back and forth across and behind the spread, and then a mad dash at the boat (me reeling fast!), and then back down under and out again! Amazingly, he stayed on, and then we maneuvered toward the mid-size Sailfish, getting camera ready, and even with lines tight and light-drag for ten minutes, I felt the fish jerk down below and "spit the hooks" (trebles 4x-6x, 20 lb. mono, 30 lb. fluoro, 40 lb. 7-strand). I wish the hooks were a little bigger; it was disappointing for us, especially not to get him up for a photo shoot, but - the good news - the action is out there, and not too far!

"Report" | Real-Time Update | 07/28/13
 

Yesterday was an interesting day to say the least. We broke the inlet and were greeted by a flat calm ocean and schools of pogies off of Holden beach. We began our search by putting out a spread of live baits in 55 feet of water. After about an hour of trolling with little result I spotted large schools of Spanish just offshore of where we were fishing. After switching to planers and spoons we were flipping fish in the box as fast as we could. After getting all of those our guest wanted for the freezer I was time to head in to clean fish and pick up our next group. On our second trip we set our sights for a spot in 65 feet of water that had been successful for Capt. Derek in the morning. He advised me that he had caught a good class if fish and that they were skying around the area. When I pulled the throttles back Aaron dew began to work his magic in the cockpit and was rewarded with success within minutes. The fish ran hard offshore which had our hopes high that we were hooked up to one of the kings Capt. Derek told us about. In a few minutes we saw the shiny outline of a kingfish flashing beneath the boat. After a well placed gaff shot by Aaron we had a high twenty pound fish in the box. This scene played out several more time throughout the trip and we ended up with five kings which all were over twenty pounds. Aaron figured out a pattern that was working really consistently. All of our bites were coming on a double pogey rig with a green glow bead either 40 feet down in the down rigger or in the medium position in the spread.

"Backwater Highlights" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/26/13
 

It has been an interesting week. I had the priviledge of taking out the Jackson family twice this week. They are a split house with Clemson and South Carolina fans among them. Thank goodness for my South Carolina Gamecock fishermen. This youngman caught everything that he hooked. My little Clemson girl suffered a few losses before she switched hats. LOL!

Check out our facebook page to see more photos and reports. See ya on the water!
