"Tis the season to be wahoo fishing" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 12/29/16
 

The action was non-stop aboard the OIFC World Cat yesterday. Phil Hester’s crew, Capt. Sean Morris and myself ventured out with hopes of finding a few bites around the 100/400 area. Upon arrival we were immediately hooked up with a false albacore on our long line. We made short work of the albacore and pushed closer towards the main number of the 100/400. Yet once again before we reached those numbers we got our shot at not one but two wahoo bites. They both ran strong but pulled the hooks. We continued trolling through the same numbers and continued to pull off/break off fish. However, in the mix with these wahoo bites we did manage to sling six dolphin in the boat. Still frustrated with our wahoo bite ratio, Phil and I began to discuss different tactics for dolphin fishing and as the conversation went on, he informed me of how nutritious the banana he just ate was…. After explaining how bananas were bad luck and making sure there was absolutely no evidence of the one he ate or any others on the boat, we hooked and boated three wahoo in short fashion. With the help of Phil’s crew, the total count ended with six dolphin and three wahoo for the day. Great work with a great crew –

Lure color and depth really didn’t seem to matter. We caught both wahoo and mahi on black/purple, blue/white, green, pink, and black/red. Depth also didn’t seem to matter as we had multiple bites on the planer and quite a few long rigger bites as well. The fish are out there and hungry and thus we’re trying to get another trip together for Saturday 12/31. $425/person and we have three spots left for the trip. Call me at (704) 616-1615 to reserve your spot today

"Guatamala Adventure" | Catch All | 12/21/16
 

Capt. Mike Webb of Pelagic Sportfishing has a few open dates available for his 2017 Guatamala charter fishing season.  If you remember, Mike hosted us for an epic Sailfish trip last February as we shot a couple episodes of No Limits Fishing TV.  If you missed the shows, here are the links:  Guatamala Part 1  -  Guatamala Part 2

Costs are per person:  2 person group ($2500 each), 3 person group ($1800 each), 4 person group ($1500 each).  The package includes transportation to and from the airport, accomodations, breakfast and lunch, 3 days of fishing, 1 day of shore excursion and 4 nights stay.  Airfare is not included; recommended flights are through Delta or American.

Mike is a NC charter captain, based from Morehead City, NC for most of the year, but he breaks from the cold Winter to partake in the awesome Sailfishing that Guatamala offers.  The cool thing about his operation is that he fishes a smaller boat (25' Panga), which makes the action much closer.  Mike lets you be as much a part of the action as you want, thus you don't just get the rod handed to you; you set the lines and you hook the fish.  If you want to learn to be a better bait and switch fisherman, this is a valuablie experience.  

You can look up Capt. Mike Webb at www.pelagicsportfishing.com or give him a call at 252-904-3361

Merry Christmas to all- Capt. Brant

"OIFC Top 5 and Fish Reports" | OIFC | 12/18/16
 

OIFC Eblast

 

 

                 OIFC TOP 5 SIMPLE BUT MEANINGFUL GIFT IDEAS

1- OIFC GIFT CARD.  Whether for that special fisherman who knows just what he needs or your fisherwoman who would rather look good than be good, an OIFC GIFT CARD will answer the call.

2- SWAMP PARK ZIPLINE & ADVENTURE COURSE GIFT CERTIFICATE.  For all Grandparents that struggle to keep grandkids entertained, this is the answer.  

3- OCEAN ISLE FISH COMPANY RESTAURANT GIFT CERTIFICATE.  Date night at the Sushi bar is a certain way to earn necessary Browny Points to go fishing.

4- CAPT. BRANT'S FISHING SCHOOLS.  Offshore or Inshore, this is truly the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.

5- CHARTER FISHING ADVENTURE.  This is that "for the whole family" gift that will get you out of having to buy for everyone.


Fishing Report

Inshore: The Speckled Trout bite continues to be good.  The live shrimp are getting more scarce so many fishermen are switching to Vudu and Bass Assassin.  The water temps have cooled a bit, so the Trout will begin to look for areas with less tidal flow and dark bottom; these areas warm up quicker and stay warmer than surround water.  Places like this include the Ocean Isle and Holden Beach canal systems, Coquina, SeaScape and Bald Head harbors.  The hot colors have been clear with sparkle flake and natural colors such as greens and oranges and blues.

        

 


Offshore: The weather has been volatile since the holiday weekend, but you can be rest assured the Wahoo and King Mackerel are still out there.  At last report, the King were in the 80' depth range at the Horseshoe and the Atlantic Ledge.  I would expect them to still be in those areas, maybe a few miles further out.  The Wahoo are here for the Winter, and it is just a matter of following your temperature charts to find where the warm water crosses over the 180' depth curve, this is where the Wahoo should be.  Also don't forget that starting Jan 1 the Bluefin Tuna season will come back open.  I don't know if you've been watching the news, but there have been more Whale sightings than normal this Fall and Whales mean Bluefin.  Get your gear ready.

"OIFC Report and Holiday Cheer" | OIFC | 12/13/16
 

 

 

 


Fishing Report

Inshore: The Speckled Trout bite continues to be good.  Vudu Shrimp have been the most effective as of late; either floated under a popping cork or worked slowly across the bottom and with the current.  Don't forget to add some Vudu Sauce or ProCure Bait Scent to increase your chances.  Pictured below is the The BoneCrusher and Trout Guru, Brandon Sauls and a few pictures he recently shared with me. He says the Shallotte River is loaded with Trout right now.  "Find ripply water where there is current around creek mouths and there will be trout there."  The hot colors have been clear with sparkle flake and natural colors such as greens and oranges and blues.

                

              

 


Offshore: The weather has not been conducive at all to offshore fishing.  There was a small window this past Sunday and it is confirmed the Kings are still in the 80' depth range at places such as the Horseshoe and the Atlantic Ledge.  The Wahoo report was not very good for whatever reason, but you can be assured all Winter they will be off our coast; find where the Stream water pushes over the 180' depth curve and they will be there.   Don't forget Bluefin season opens Jan 1 -- maybe this will be the year they show back up in numbers.  The OIFC has all the gear including harpoons.   Get your gear ready.
