Good luck to everyone fishing the Jolly Mon and don't forget to join the OIFC Rodeo.
Well now that the storm is gone the back waters should clear up. The flounder did bite a little bit on the beginning of the rising tide in Tubbs inlet yesterday. We missed a couple of fish anf decidied to try the Shallotte River. The water was cleaner but they did'nt bite. Clearing conditions this week will help us get back on track.
As you can tell in the picture the OIFC Rodeo has a pretty nice pot. In fact I think it is already as much as it was last year.
Jolly Mon anglers...joining the rodeo is another way to win some money & get a cool looking trophy.

Shipment of bait pins from Rob's Reel Bait came in today. I picked up mine and it is outstanding. Even has a place to put a chum block to feed the bait while they wait for the next tournament. Be sure to stop in and pick one up. They will go fast.
We fished on sunday which was the roughest of the 2 days but had to because of my daughters dance recital. Caught bait just west of Shallotte inlet and proceeded to 75 ft where I was informed of a good bite the day before.. The weather was nasty and we were immediately covered up with amberjacks 6 at a time.. Left and pushed out a little deaper jumped around trying our best to find a king .. finally around 1230 we got a king run and didn't take long to get the guy to the boat .. We knew we were in the right spot but at this time we were down to only a dozen or so red nosed pogies so we jigged up some baits and threw them out. Seconds later we had a triple header of dolphin.. Then another and a few more jacks so we decided that the weather was getting too bad and baits were looking awful so we called it a day.. Ride in was nice as we ran 35kts the whole way cruising.. The king put us in 13th place for the tournament and had we entered the twt we would of gotten 2nd in the dolphin division. Good tournament with a lot of good competition this year...The good news is the kings are here they just weren't feeding.. Numerous fish were caught on Saturday and the bite gonna get better.. Jolly Mon bite should be good
Here is a quick video we made with our Go Pro camera showing the different ways to get great action on video. These cameras are a lot of fun to have on the boat, in the duck blind, or even in the tree stand. They are easy to use and you don;t have to be as talented as Chris Campbell to make a video. There are multiple ways to mount these cameras and get footage you never thought was possible. Have you ever wondered what your favorite grouper rock looks like? Well, just drop the Go Pro down on the downrigger and you will have your answer.
A group of guys from Rockingham, NC joined me on a breezy rainy morning. We left several others on the dock this morning shaking their heads at us. It is hard to pass up a day to go fishing cause you just never know. We caught our bait in front of the Ocean Isle Marina and headed on down towards Tubbs. We worked hard to set the anchor in the stiff SSE breeze. Once the anchor set we baited our hooks with some 5 inch pogies and went to work. It was not long before I was texting the fellows back at the dock a picture of a nice flounder in the box. We landed 3 keeper flounder, lost a few at the boat, and released 3 shorts. We eased out into the waterway looking for some redfish action. We found a 26", 26 1/2", and a 29" stud to finish the day. The conditions really weren't that bad. In fact, the wind almost completely stop blowing at one point bringing out the no see-ums and that was the worst condition we face all day. Thank goodness the breeze picked back up! There seems to be some good fish hanging around, but you have got to be patient and work for them. Live baits on a Carolina rig has been doing the trick lately. See ya on the water!
