"Wahoo!!" | Real-Time Update | 08/01/13
 

Had a great trip yesterday morning aboard the Carolina Cat. We started our morning catching two live wells full of pogies east of the inlet. We then pushed out to an area that had been producing kings for us pretty consistent the last few days. As soon as we pulled up we noticed that we were not there alone and a couple of the boats already there were hooked up. We set our normal live bait spread and soon got a strike only to lose it after a short run. Our next bite came from the downrigger and ran hard straight offshore. Ms. Mary Kwiatkowski began to battle the fish for a while until her arms were about to fall off from reeling in the amount of line that had been taken off the reel. As the fish continued to head offshore we angled the boat toward him and played a game of give and take. He would give us a little line and make us feel like we were winning and then he would show us that we in fact were not winning at all and take another run. When Mary tagged out to Andrew Horbaly we had fresh arms on the reel and the tide started to turn in our favor a little. The fish settles in to a slow cruising speed about twenty feet below the boat and continued to head offshore. After about a half hour he settled in below the boat and began to plane toward the surface. At first glance we all thought It was one of the bigger kings we have been catching but when he got ten feet from the surface I noticed this king had stripes!! It was in fact a wahoo. He then came to the surface and laid up for an easy gaff shot. He was put on ice and high fives began. Definitely a welcomed surprise to come out of 65 feet of water.

"Just When You Thought It Was Safe" | Do Work / OIFC | 08/01/13
 

Our Tuesday family fishing adventure was not in vain. 
 

It was truly a beautiful day at the beach.  Adam, our ten year old, had caught fresh mullet out in the canal that was the perfect teaser for a this five foot wonder! 


Right as the storm was brewing on the mainland and threatening to shorten our evening fun at the beach, our Beefstick Daiwa with its Penn Pursuit 6000 reel laid down triggering our adrenaline to shoot up!  The battle was on!  We only had about half a spool of line so Greg, our friend from our hometown, ran out with the rod into waste deep water running with the beast to make sure that all the line was not ripped from the spool.  A crowd was gathering and our anticipation was mounting as we hypothesized what would be on the other end of this line.  Shannon battled for awhile and finally we corralled the Black Tip Shark ashore.  The crowd gathered with smartphones and cameras in hand snapping shots as Shannon ran for his equipment to unleash the beast and set him free once again.
 
Although, toward the end, we did get drizzled on a little, it was well worth our trip!

"Sail Fish Catch & Release" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/31/13
 

Misty Tucker fished aboard the Fineboy II with Capt. George Lepper on Saturday (7/27) at the 70 ft hole, hooked a 45#-55# range sailfish, it was magical to watch this fish dance 4-5 times across the water on its tail trying to shake the hook. After a 40 minute fight and retrieving 250-300 yards of line we successfully released this beautiful fish back into the ocean...this was the first sailfish catch and release for Team Fineboy II.

Thank you for the picture and the fine report.

If you have a report & picture send them to me at sunset69@atmc.net..Thx

The Mt. Airy Joyce team is one to keep an eye on. Cousin Ronnie just graduated from a weekend excursion with Team OIFC to Lousiana and learned first hand from Capts Brant & Barrett & Rube everything not to do to win a tourney. Apparently he also learned what to do to have a great catch. Congrats Team Joyce!





"Live Shrimp" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/31/13
 

The OIFC is suspending the sale of live shrimp until @ October.  The water in the tank is too hot to keep them alive.  We are sorry as we know how much the customers liked them..We'll let you know when the program cranks back up.

Please help spread the word.

"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.

"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!
