"The James Family" | Tiberias - 22' | 09/04/13
 

The backwater fishing has remained pretty strong considering all the factors that have made it so challenging this year. We have suffered some serious freshwater runoff keeping the water dirty and cooler than normal. The baitfish also took their sweet time showing up this year further delaying the fast and furious action we all have expected. I can tell you that all that is about to change. The bait fish are thick, the creeks are full of shrimp, and the cold fronts are coming. This will set of a chain reaction that will get the fish chewing! The redfish are scattered right now, but several schools are starting to bunch up and get aggressive. Look for the creeks to produce slot reds around the 20 inch mark. The closer you get to the inlets the better chance you are going to have at catching some 30 inch reds. The Little River Jetties and nearshore reefs will start to see more fish approaching the 40 inch mark. The flounder are all over the nearshore reefs and a few good ones are starting ease into the creeks. Nice schools of black drum should also start to show anyday now. The trout are hanging around, but look for them to get more aggressive and pack up as the water starts to cool. The James family fished with me a couple times in the last few weeks and enjoyed some success on both trips. The red drum cooperated on our first trip and some nice flounder joined us on our second trip. It is always a great joy to meet new people and I am looking forward to fishing with Mr. James' family again in the near future. See ya on the water!

Jacob, I will have to ask you how you are catching flounder, etc. Have now made 8 straight trips to all the reefs from Yaupon down to Jim Caudle without catching a single edible fish. Toughest fishing I have ever done. Are you sure this is not the Sahara Desert!!! Steve

Capt. Chris Dawson and I enjoyed a beautiful day on the water with the Chapman group consisting of Jim, Bruce and Robbie for a full day trip. After catching bait we headed offshore to about 90 feet of water to do some bottom fishing. At their request we focused on bottom fish as they had never really done much bottom fishing offshore. Our first drop resulted in 3 nice jumbo bass. We continued to catch nice bass and a few bee liners before we moved about a mile to check out another spot. There we also caught big bass and some nice grunts. We decided to give them a break and troll the area with live bait and see if any kings were around. No kings but the jacks ended the break. We played with jacks for a bit and then put out a couple of cedar plugs and some diving plugs and headed out to about 110 feet of water. Along the way Capt. Dawson spotted a log floating and I turned toward it. On the first pass we had 4 mahi on. We then stopped and pitched Bucktails to the schooling mahi. We boated a few more and then finished up by catching enough bass to complete our limit as well as some more beeliners and one nice Spanish that ate a pogey free lined while we were bottom fishing. A great day with some really great guys.

Corey nice job and you are right it is great that we have the Ocean Isle Fishing Center here with the best supplies that a fisherman could ask for for all types of fishing.

I am glad to see the Team OIFC was right there on the top of the leader board. God Bless and we look forward to seeing you on the water soon!

"No Tail" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 09/01/13
 

This king should be named Capt. Rickey, because like me it has no tail.  He lost his rear while being brought in.  This is the 2nd king I've posted in the last couple weeks that had been chomped in half.

This 38 lb king was caught on the Miss Reagan by Will Mullins in 80 ft  on a downrigger.  What they had left weighed 38 lbs.  They didn't see what hit the king.

Thanks to Allen Hinson for the report..

"Lake Hickory Fishing" | Do Work / OIFC | 08/31/13
 

Today Team Do Work sat out of the South Brunswick Island to travel to Taylorville N.C. Striped Bass fishing on Lake Hickory with Fishing Guide Bob Green today and dove hunting on Monday.  The tactics we used today were just like King fishing. The day started by looking for shad flipping on the surface.  Once we located the shad, we threw the net and caught all we needed for a half day of fishing.  We then set out for the fishing grounds.  Once we found a spot, we set a spread of five live baits that were slow trolled over structure, humps, ledges and drop offs.  The area of the lake we fished is referred to as "Gun powder".  We quickly learned how it got its name.  As soon as the baits were set, the drags started screaming.  All together, I learned that fresh water Striper fishing is very similar to the King Mackerel fishing we do at home.  If anyone is in the Lake Hickory area and is looking for a great fishing experience, I would highly recommed Bob Green (828-493-4305).
