Butch Myers, the resident OIFC Contractor and OIFC in shore Charter Captain Jacob Frick ventured off shore in between days of high wind and caught some nice fish as well as turned in these beautiful pictures.
The last picture is a tradition by Butch..a picture of the sunrise as he breaks the inlet.
I you have a story accompanied by pictures send them to Sunset69@atmc.net
At the South Atlantic Fed meeting they did what was expected and almost tripled the allowable catch. However we hoped they would immediately open the seaon but they didn't and it is still a June 1 open. The further hope is with the significantly increased ACL the season will be able to be extended for a full season. Haven't been able to get the story behind the story yet, but will post when I get it.
Looks like a classic Saturday shoot out for FOSO as weather looks ideal for Saturday to go to the stream. The winds have kept everyone inshore this week so should be game on Saturday. The fish are there, time to go get them. Come join us for a chance to join a great competition for local bragging rights.
One of the OIFC's newest employees who is Mrs. Anita's "Girl Friday" is with Jordan Williamson, and several other friends aboard Don's Yellowfin "Black Gold" in the Bahamas. The group left Florida aboard the Yellowfin and headed to the Bahamas for some relaxation and fishing. Here is Liz's report:
Second day here and we are already catching fish! We went out about ten miles from Hope Town Light House. Today we caught three Dolphins and a Yellow Fin Tuna. I have attached some pictures and the GoPro took some good video. They are heading out tomorrow in hopes of catching a Marlin.
I can't say that I have been real happy with my productivity on may last few backwater trips. We have had lots of fun reeling in tons of pinfish, croakers, and spots. We have only managed the occassional short flounder and reds. I would expect better action with all the croakers and spots in the water. I can only hope that things will get turn on again just as quickly as it turned off. The weather is looking great this coming weekend and I may have an opportunity to stretch out into the ocean Saturday. Kings, Spanish, Bluefish and False Albacore have been providing some great action on top of lately. Black sea bass and gray trout have provided some action for bottom fishermen. I will keep you posted on the action once I am confident that I have found it. See ya on the water!

Captain Michelle Drake and 1st Mate Billy Berg decided to kill 2 fish (birds) with one stone today. They took the Dolphin Tour Boat the "Getaway" out for a shake down run and decided to pull for spanish mackerel at the same time...Why waste fuel? They caught some spanish and an Atlantic Bonita while pulling Clarke Spoons in 20 ft of water.
Captain Drake said she did not see any bait while making their run off Cherry Grove Beach. Getaway Adventures is a proud supporter of Team OIFC.
Thanks for the pictures guys.
