"Everything U Need..." | Tiberias - 22' | 05/09/13
 

Fill the boat up with an inshore slam...Speckled trout, red drum, flounder, and black drum have all been caught the past couple of weeks. Things are only going to get better from here. Gulp baits on a light jighead is surely to get the bite!

Keep the family and kids from getting crabby...blue crabs are great eating and they are getting thicker in our waterway each day.   A throw line and a chicken neck is all you need to fill up a cooler of great eating.

Kings and Spanish are moving into our nearshore waters. We have custom made live bait and dead bait rigs already tied for you that will help catch your limit of kings. Pre-rigged spanish leaders, paired with a #1 planer will stack the deck full of spanish.

Ya'll come on by the store this weekend. I have got all this great stuff on an easy to find end cap. Any questions? Holler at the staff and they will gladly help you out! See ya on the water!

"The Jack O Latern" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/08/13
 

Dr. Terry lights up as his new Jack O Latern lure is looking good! Dr. Terry hopes to push his little 23' Sea Fox to the edge of the stream Friday. I hope the weather holds and folks can get out on the water.

Some body let the dogs out? Capt. William Parker found a nice citation flounder this afternoon just before low tide. The water temperatures are still below normal for this time of year. The weather and temperatures appear to be more stable in this week's forecast.

Another good friend of mine reported getting a few nice black drum and two keeper flounder this afternoon as well.

The Little River Jetties were hot this morning, but the shallow creeks are where most of the action is still happening.

I am looking forward to an increase in the action. As always stay tuned as we will most definitly keep you posted. See ya on the water!

"Finally Going Fishing" | OIFC | 05/07/13
 

Team OIFC is finally going fishing-- or at least we will make it as far as the boat in the morning.  Barrett and I are headed out with a few friends to see what is beyond the horizon.  As is normal, the "usual" will not be on the menu.  Something between Mahi, Marlin, Swordfish, Tilefish and Snowy Grouper -- go deep or go home.  Stay tuned. 

The weather is looking good thru Saturday.  The Far Out Shoot Out tournament starts fishing Saturday.  Capt. meeting is Friday, 7pm at the Carolina Wing Company.  Come join the fun.

Killing you? How bout me? I'm stuck with one foot in a cast, non-weight bearing for 6 weeks- Praying for the weather to lay enough to go fishing. We arrived to the sea buoy at 6:15am and I made the no-go call. The wind was SW at 12kts with a south swell that was tight and steep. It was doable for sure, but not in my condition. OC went ahead on his Stream charter and boated a dozen or so 10-12lb Mahi, couple Blackfin and then did some bottom fishing the second half of the day. He said the Mahi were not bunched up, scattered steady. He fished the Black Jack area. Once again the weather has gone to poop and what was looking like good conditions is no more. Such is life I guess?

Matt Sobota 05/09/2013

You know your killing us not getting the update to this report up. Hope you had a good day yesterday.





"Parrot Party" | OIFC | 05/07/13
 

This Thursday evening at the Carolina Wing Co. in Shallotte there is a "Parrot Party". All you Jimmy Buffett followers out there come out to the Wing Co. and enjoy the Buffett tribute band led by Randy Knight. We'll have Buffett inspired food and drink specials. We'll be there hopefully swapping fishing stories from tomorrow's adventure. The festivities begin at 7pm. See you there.

"Taking time to smell the roses" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 05/06/13
 

I took some time to pick the brain of life time friend Milton Williams. Many of you may remember Milton as that skinny fella with the funny laugh that ran the pier at OIB.  Milton knows the water ways and creeks as good as anyone around. While there I took a moment to admire the roses around the yard. With the 20 mph east winds that have blow for the past 10 days fishing has been tough to say the least. With that said we have not given up. The beauty of inshore is there is always somewhere to hide from the winds. With a bag of freshly caught shrimp and some jumbo mud minnnows from the OIFC. I hit the holes in the back waters and found some willing to chew.

"Report Shy..." | Tiberias - 22' | 05/04/13
 

I think Capt. Jeff and myself have been a little shy to report on the backwater fishing. The conditions have been tough to say the least. We have been catching fish, but our fingers have been crossed on each trip. The weather has been unseasonable and inconsistant making it tough to get into any kind of routine. Black drum, red drum and speckled trout have been the action providers this week with a couple of flounder in the mix. The water has really cooled down again killing any hopes for a great flounder bite. We need the water temps to reach the lower 70's for the flounder to get turned on. The water temp this morning had fallen to near 60 degrees. Mother nature needs to put away her long sleeves and bring out her flip flops already! I have a feeling when things finally get right the fishing is going to be off the charts! See ya on the water!

I saw the pictures of the Striped Bass (Rockfish here in Maryland), and I thought I'd send you a couple of pictures from Maryland. We've been tearing them up too!! See you guys this summer, and at the Jolly Mon. Hope all is well.

Paul McIntyre (Tiger Rag)

Thanks Paul.   I  used to fish Kerr Lake and we called them Rock Fish too.

"Preseason Bait Pen Order" | OIFC | 05/02/13
 

The OIFC stocks Rob's Reel Bait Pens.  These are mesh pens that are the best I've seen.  Team OIFC and many other SKA pro teams travel with these pens as they are light, easy to handle and keep bait great.  Locally, they are excellent for holding Bluefish.  We get one shipment every year as Rob travels up this way to see relatives- shipping them makes them too expensive.

Visit www.robsreelbaits.com and take a look at the pens he offers.  If you are interested in any of the pens, EMAIL me and I will put your order in:  DEADLIINE is May 10th.  The shipment usually arrives the first week of June.  The cost of the pens you get through the OIFC will be less than you can get them off the internet as there will be no shipping.

Let us know.  The season is almost here!

"Sea Bass deal coming together" | OIFC | 05/02/13
 

As we have discussed on OIFC.com, we have been in heavy communication with the marine fisheries folks in NC/SC and Florida regarding the closure of sea bass fishing in our waters. There is unamious agreement, the Fed policy is a mess. Here's where it stands:

Dr. Louis Daniel has told us if SC votes to go "non-compliant" with the Fed rules he will immediatley request the MFC allow him to do the same, thus immediately opening NC waters. The SC legislature[House] voted 100-1 to go non-compliant. The bill now goes to the Senate, and if the Senate votes in favor, which is expected, then the Legislature will have agreed to give the authority to the SCDNR to go non-compliant. Dr. Daniel is watching this closely and as I said, if SC goes non-compliant, then he will do the same in order to protect the rights of NC fishermen to have a shot at the allocation{ACL]. HOWEVER; in the mean time, the Feds authorized the SC DNR to do a new study of the status of the sea bass population. The results of that study are in, and it says sea bass are at a "sustaniable level". On May 13, the Feds will meet, and it is believed they will open the season and extend it so that it will be open from now till the end of the year, with the 5 fish/person limit. It is expected they will close Jan-March as this is identified as the breeding season. SO..whether the SC votes to go non-compliant or not, it appears the Feds are looking for a way to avoid a civil war[as every sourthern state except NC has basically declared war by going non-compliant], thus likely the above senario is what will happen. HOWEVER, if it doesn't, SC will go non-compliant, and then NC will follow.

WHEW...... everyone understand that? Sorta, it appears we will win, as the Feds are backing off their unsupportive position that has been burdening us for too long.

Thanks to Dr. Daniel. Director of NC Marine Fisheries for stepping to the plate and applying his pressure to the Feds; thanks to the SC DNR for their study that confirms to the Feds that there is no problem; thanks to the SC Legislature and thanks to everyone out there for pounding away at everyone that is part of the decision process.

With the recent bill for gamefish status for redfish ,speckled trout and seabass ,can you guys please contact the local tv channels and give them an accurate report , they make it sound like Recreational fisherman get a fair hand , they never say I can keep five seabass at 13 inches and commercial guys get a 1000 pounds gutted weight per trip at 11 inches

Rube McMullan 05/05/2013

Thanks for your comment Stick Slinger; but here is a very important point. When we built OIFC, one of our goals was to create a "platform" that could be built into a powerful voice that we could use to try to impact fishery issues. I can tell you, as a result of the loyalty and committment many thousands of folks have shown to OIFC, it worked! OIFC is not about me or any one person...it's about all of you. When we go after a politician on a issue, it's not me that gets their attention; it's the power of the voices of the many supporters of OIFC. For that, we thank you and all the others out there, and certainly ask for your continued support; as one thing is for certain....there will be more battles out there for us to fight. On behalf of OIFC...THANKS to everyone for your support!

Stick Slinger 05/04/2013

Rube, thanks for always being a voice for us all. You have contacts with people we can only email and get a response from a secretary... We all appreciate the work you do. Most of us in Little River / North Myrtle Beach SC also have NC license as well. Never know when I may need to come in your inlet to get home when it starts blowing. We need to all work to get sea bass open. Thanks again!!!

John 05/03/2013

Agreed Rube -- and KEEP it open.

Rube McMullan 05/03/2013

I know there are many different perspectives on this issue, but for me, I paint with a big paint brush; just get the damn thing open.

John 05/03/2013

Rusty - N of Hatteras the limit is 20 and opens for recs May 19. Comms there open sooner and are permitted 100# daily with a 1500# cap until May 31 when the federal season opens for everywhere south of Hatteras. Let's see what happens on the 13th. There will never be a net invented that is species selective. There is no way comms can not catch BSB while doing their job. Dennis - those going out on a 1/2 day inexpensive headboat trip are looking for something to do and gather a meal- 5 BSB will do that. A family of 4 can bring in 20 in a short trip and still spend time on the beach. A year round season as FL has makes more sense. During winter there are few tourists looking for BSB, they will be warmer inshore ( 1/2 or full day ) or going for the big species offshore. May 1 grouper opens- BSB, grouper, spec, blues, redfish, and as the water warms flounder will draw more tourists. A year round season will catch some golfers looking for something different to do. No one takes a cooler of fish home by air and even those with a long drive can have a problem during the warm months. Just my $0.02 but year round makes the most sense. When I take my grandsons out they just want to catch fish and are proud to have them for dinner. We let them fish as 10 BSB is enough for a meal or two. Much more fun to go out often than to load up once. However, the days I go alone a 10 fish limit would be nice.

Rube, a lot of thanks to you for spearheading this. You're the man.

John 05/02/2013

Rusty -- the 20 BSB limit begins N of Hatteras on May 19. The comm season there opens soon. They have a 100# per day, 1500# max until June 1 when the federal season opens. Comms S of Hatteras are in the same boat as recs on dates unless there is a change. Dennis - I believe a longer season, year round like Fl, is better for locals and those taking tourists out. During dead winter few come to fish and could go even near shore to catch BSB and dogfish. Other than an inexpensive headboat trip few target BSB only and how many can they eat? May 1 grouper opened and many would like a few BSB meals as a bonus fishing for those and have the chance at specs, redfish, and as the water warms flounder too. When I take my 2 grandsons out I don't fish as 10 BSB is enough. Tourists rarely take fish home as most drive and keeping them frozen is a problem, flying makes it nearly impossible to take their catch home. I would like to see a 10 fish limit, but year round is much better in my opinion.

dennis c. 05/02/2013

I would just be happy if they would increase the daly creel limit to 15 or 20 and leave the closings the same.thats alot of $$$$ to go out and catch 5 fish when you are a visitor down for vacation and to stimulate the economy in the brunswick county each areas. the rules and regulations / creel limits alt to be the same up and down the east coast.its not the every day fisherman that has hurt the populations of this fish in the past, its the commercial industry. who do you know that can go out daily and catch 1700 to 2500 lbs.of these fish legaly in a day!!!!! so cut them off early and let the rod and reel people continue fishing for this great speicies of fish and that goes for the same of all the other fish stocks. ps. from my trips last year this fish has deff repopulated and stocks are at its best. you know its good when you catch these guys and a grouper in the waterway.......

Rube McMullan 05/02/2013

Nothing I say is official; I am only speculating/demizing, based on best available information, derived from best available sources; not to be confused with best available science[kinda like my weather reports]. The guess is since they say the study shows sea bass are at a "sustainable level", that suggest the 5 fish limit they had proposed is what they will go with. I'd also guess commercial will also open. May 13 should be an interesting day.

Rusty 05/02/2013

why just a five fish limit? Is the commercial fishery going to open as well

John 05/02/2013

Just like 150 years ago NC has to wait on SC to lead ...... those N of Hatteras season begins on the 19th with a 20 fish limit. We need to find a fish like R Regan that can demand "tear down that fence" in the ocean.


John 05/03/2013

"Meat In The Box-They're here" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/01/13
 

After being missing for way too long Tim Gallimore has finally resurfaced!  Ya'll may remember Tim as the developer of the ever popular and effective Capt. Tim's Channelside Flounder Rig.  Tim submitted the following report:

Myself and my business partner, Ryan Boltz, snuck out after work between rain showers and managed to put a little meat in the box. The flounder was right at 4 lbs on the Bogas. My guess is They're Here!

Thanks and glad to see you back out.   Remember if you have a report with pictures send them to sunset69@atmc.net.

"Ya Never Know..." | Tiberias - 22' | 04/30/13
 

If you have a chance to go fishing? You should go! I expected to have a tough time finding fish with dirty rain water draining from the creeks. It appears that the freshwater run off may have gotten the fish more active. As always, I use artificials most of the time when I am scouting around. I caught 7 trout, a 17 inch flounder and a nice black drum in just a couple of hours this afternoon. All trout were released to spawn out, the flounder and black drum hit the frying pan. Most of the trout and black drum hit a 52MR "808" color mirr-0-lure. The flounder and other trout hit a 4" Sea Shad by Bass Assassin in limetruese color paired with a 1/8th ounce red jighead. The OIFC carries both of these lures. Stop by the shop, Dr. Terry or myself will get you hooked up with the right gear. See ya on the water!

"NEW PRODUCTS IN- Fishizzle and Fish Finder" | OIFC | 04/30/13
 

I think I mentioned this in an earlier report, but we have gotten the Fishizzle Brass Ballyhead lures that Capt. Steele is so hot on- We have then in Black/Purple and Black/Red.  Also, we have just gotten new product from Fish Finder Lures -- Capt. Joe Shute of Morehead used to run a tackle store up there and was making lures in the back room.  All the charter boats started using them and catching fish.  He had so much demand for the lures, he couldn't run the tackle store.  Now he is a full time lure manufacturer- Fish Finder Tackle- and the OIFC is a retail location for his fish finding lures!  Come check them out and give them a shot.

"Vacation Is Over" | Do Work / OIFC | 04/30/13
 

OK in shore fishies...your vacation is over...The Bonecrusher is back in town.  Capt. Barandon Sauls has been in Fla. mixing business with vacation...and vacation for Brandon most always involves fishing.

Brandon was kind enough to share his exploits with us.....

Good morning! Check out the 90 lb tarpon I caught Saturday at Long Key Channel down just South of Islamorada, FL.

 

We caught foot long sized mullet back in the mangroves and fished them on a floater rig back in the shadow lines of the Long Key Channel Bridge. Fish came up on short bait, swirled and missed, went to long bait and knocked him out the water - I left the bait there for a minute or so and then started slowly retrieving when he came back and ate it hard! Fought the fish for about 20 mins before we got him to the boat.

 

The tarpon bite is on down there - we had quite a few other shots but did not capitalize...BS

Thanks Brandon and welcome back to Paradise!!

"rigging prep" | Do Work / OIFC | 04/29/13
 

 

Camdyn and I spent the weekend cleaning the boat and rigging some offshore lures.  I think we have all of our favortie lures ready for the Far Out Shoot Out that is right around the corner.  Camdyn was busy putting the lures on the line, bagging the finished product and naming the rigs.  Here is a picture of some of our favorites.

"Fishing In New Jersey" | Do Work / OIFC | 04/28/13
 

I got a phone call from a friend from N.J. today, even better then the call was the awesome pictures below. Mark advised that the bass fishing has been great, He said that he has even caught them three at a time and sent proof with a picture. Mark advised that he had 5 bass on Wednesday, 7 on Thursday morning and 3 Thursday evening. All fish came on the troll in Raritan Bay N.J in 23 to 27 feet of water, the water temp was 54.1 degrees. The name of Marks boat is Team Outer Limits. I am very familiar with this boat and I know she can catch fish. This is the boat we won the 2010 Div 9 championship on. It just proves that she can catch fish in any waters. Awesome job Mark and keep the reports coming, give Team Outer Limits a pat on the gunnel and tell her Team Do Work said hello.
