Curtis, Megan, Kendall and Charles fished aboard the World Cat this morning with Mate Austin Aycock and myself. They managed to find some really nice Spanish mackerel after battling sharks.

Bon Newell sent us some pictures of a few of the fish he has caught while fishing Hatteras. He also said they saw some sailfish but were unable to get hooked up.They caught their largest mahi on day 3 and largest wahoo on day 4.
On the homefront Johnathan Richey weighed a 7.1 red fish to take 1st place in the OIFC Rodeo. He was fishing aboard Brandon Saul's boat with Brandon. Since Brandon entered his boat, Jonathan is eligible to weigh the fish.
Join the Rodeo!!! And again thanks for the reports. I yo have any pictures & reports send them to email@example.com
Brandon Sauls & Clay Morphes fished the Fishermans Post Tournament this weekend. Brandon didn't say where they were but my $ says they were somewhere behind Sunset Beach. I will have to check the OIFC Rodeo Leader Board to see where these flounder put them
well we messup up fishing sunday for sure as the forecast for a light sw wind on sunday was a bit wrong.. We planned on running offshore but after greeting the strong winds and waves we decided to make camp at the jungle area.. Ran down the beach looking for bait and finally found some around appache pier . The baits were not ideal but we went with them and proceeded to go just offshore of the jungle and put lines out.. After we arrived we realized that the livewell plug was never put in so we were left with only the baits in the real livewell..Durrr..Fished our normal spread and didnt get any strikes for about an hour and the boats around us were having the same results so we eased inshore some.. Imediatly after arriving a 20 lb cobia was zoned in on our double pogy in the prop and inhaled it and made it in the box shortly after .. Next it was shark after shark until we only had abouy 6 baits left. We made the call to run inshore to the 410/510 area and before we could get there we saw a pretty good size pod of greenies working the surface so i throtttled back and told the crew to put a couple lines out and immediatly we got a double header.. 10-12lb kings and thought for sure we were gonna get another hookup but never did.. jigged up a couple dozen greenies and finished out the day west of the 410510 which in my opinion had the best looking warter and bait that we had seen all day but no more fish.. Fished as long as we could hoping for the smoker but it wasnt our day and thats just how it goes .. SUPER SUPER great tournament put on at the OIFC as always and a great turnout.This is one of the best tournaments of the year .Had a blast with my wife and friends out there and always look forward to this tournament .Also a huge thanks to Wes at anglers marine. I was experiencing some wiring issues with the livewell sat morning while scouting for bait and called wes when i was inside the river channel and he rushed someone over to meet me and actually beat me to holden beach marina.. Fixed the problem in 5 minutes and i was on my way ..Awesome first class service
Austin, Brandon and my niece Maddison headed out to the Jolly Mon reef today to jig some bait for an upcoming trip. They decided to put out a couple of pogies on king rigs while they anchored, chummed and jigged bait. It didn't take long and a nice cobia decided to check things out. The gang was headed back to the dock by lunchtime with a tank full of live bait and a cobia on ice.
Doesn't your best furry friend want OIFC gear too?! Of course they do! Get the NEW OIFC Doggiedana's HERE.
All of the attention lately has rightfully been on the Jolly Mon. Meanwhile the back water action continued.
In the first picture Brian Lovingood's lovely daughter shows he Father's Day flounder. I can't go on without thanking Brian for the use of his Fusion radio on the Do Work/OIFC. When you have Marine Electronics needs in our area Brian and the GPS Store are the go to businesses.
The 2nd picture is of the beautiful Christina who landed this flat fish while fishing with Daniel Simmons on the afternoon of June 12th. Daniel reported they were catching the flounder 2 at a time.
The last pictures are courtesy of the infamous Tommy Helms. The are of fish he caught while fishing with "June Bug" Trent near the Sunset Beach bridge.
Thanks for the reports everybody. If ya'll have any reports with pictures send them to me at Sunset69@atmc.net.
