Found plenty of pogies between the water tower and the high rise, 11:35 am. Baits are a little small, but largest pods we have seen today.

You gotta like it when a plan comes together. This morning its blowing out of the northwest, cool, magnificent morning. It's flat on the beach so the pogy pods should be able to come back together from the SW winds of yesterday. Before the blow they were thick from inlet to inlet. The beach waters should clear up bringing the beach spots into play for the tourney. No reports from yesterday due to the winds, but our charter boats are out today so we should be able to provide some water color conditions later today. The weather for Saturday/Sunday is perfect! 2 foot seas...don't get no better than that pal! Wind will move today to north and then to south for Sat/Sun. All indications are the Jolly Mon will be HUGE this year. Come join us. Somebody is going to win a whole bunch of money!
Few things that are on my mind I want to remind participants:
1-- Registration on-site AND on-line will CLOSE AT 10PM, different from the originally published time of 11:59am
2-- The Shallotte Point Flounder Tournament weigh-in will be taking place on Friday and Saturday near Inlet View restaurant at Shallotte Point. There will be law enforcement on-site so SLOW DOWN or you might miss weigh-in.
LATEST REEFCAST for this weekend. Looks like we have gotten lucky- let's go fishing!

Getting ready for Rock the Dock!
Our charter boats fishing yesterday reported the following re: conditions for kings:
-water full of stud pogies from Shallotte Inlet to Little River from 6 feet to 20 feet.
-water toward Jungle area still slity[lime green] and dirty[did catch a king there however]
-water in 80 feet looked much better; caught a king there
-cobia a nuisance[only to the king fishermen] they are still thick everywhere
Standby for todays report when the charter boats get back.
That sounds like a perfect job for Captain Rickey!!!!
But Brandon Sauls already has one, David Hudnik. And it seems David knows how to wet a hook. Check out the pictures, they had a few more reds and a flounder. Non of the reds were big enough to knock David's co worker, Johnathan Richey off the OIFC Rodeo Leader Board.
Reminder...the clock is ticking down to the Jolly Mon. The fun begins tomorrow at 9am with "Rock The Dock"!!!! Hope to see ya'll there.
