"Ethanol Fuel" | Do Work / OIFC | 02/23/13
 

I have a friend who runs an auto service center.  He said several people had brought their cars in with performance issues.  He tested the fuel and in each and every one he found 20% ethanol!  We all know what ethanol does to marine motors.  Now with seemingly 20% in the fuel be advised for further performance issues and possible damage.

The OIFC sells 100% ethanol ffree fuel as well as ethanol fue.  We also sell STA-Bill Ethanol Treatment and Performance Enhancer.

How about pounds landed divided by weigh ins recorded to obtain an average per person... would be a fair system for those not fortunate enough to fish as often.... Just Saying,

Tommy Helms 02/23/2013

I think that by person is a good idea ! There are so a dozen or so Boats our group fish from and some like to join in the Rodeo and some are to tight (OPPS!) I did not say that ! You get the picture?

"SAFMC Dolphin/Wahoo AP" | OIFC | 02/22/13
 

It's been awhile since I last posted on the OIFC website, and I have to say it feels good to be back on here. As some of you know, I left the area in late 2009, but it wasn't long before I came back to my adopted home. Recently, I was asked to join the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council's Dolphin/Wahoo Advisory Panel, reinforcing the idea that it's not WHAT you know... In any event, the advisory panel has a meeting on March 27 in Charleston (my first as a member), so I'll be attempting to keep readers informed on what is going on at the regional level in fisheries management, at least as far as dolphin and wahoo are concerned. In the meantime, many thanks to the crew at the OIFC, it's good to be back home.

JV 02/22/2013

I agree with limiting an entrant to placing only once in a category, even if they weigh more and bigger fish. This spreads the wealth more and encourages participation. My first suggestion however is to eliminate the weigh-in requirement at OIFC. What about using pictures for length or any official weigh station for weight? This would open the competition up to Kayakers and encourage better catch-n-release habits. I fish mostly around Southport and didn't participate last year just because i didnt want to have to ride down to Ocean Isle just to weigh one fish that i caught at 7pm one afternoon. One other suggestion might be quarterly or monthly awards/entry. This would keep the excitement going plus allow for multiple winners along the way. Then have one overall winner for the trophy at the end. If someone wants to compete each month then they pay each month. Should build the prize pool up too. I wonder how many repeat winners you might get. Now that's bragging rights! Oh, and entry by person and say $10 per month entry fee which makes you eligible to submit weights in each category. If one person catches the biggest inshore slam in a month then they deserve the credit...

Wparker 02/21/2013

I liked it the way it was. What happened to the Cobia slot, And a entrant can win but one place per species, Never see a race where the same person wins 1st,2nd & 3rd. each fish weighed in should be accompanied by a photo of the fish. you must register for each species at OIFC in person,no phone in's . No Tournament fish are allowed to be registered i.e. Far-Out Shootout, Jollymon, any other outside tournament. No one else can weigh in a fish but the person who caught it. Finally, No one knows how many entrants or how much money is in the till for each species until November 31st. Its supposed to be a friendly tournament,not a who has the most testosterone, or biggest ego. Not trying to piss anybody off,but lets level the playing a little. Thanks Parker

AR 02/21/2013

Have you considered including Cobia and Amberjack? How about a kid's and women's division?

"One way or Another..." | Tiberias - 22' | 02/20/13
 

Got out on the water for a few minutes this morning. The water was as clean and clear as bath water. Not quite as warm though...The conditions were ideal for sight fishing this morning. The smaller reds were cooperating pretty good, but the larger fish would have nothing to do with it. I had about an hour of biting before they just shut down on me. I have taken the boat out of the water in order to prepare for the upcoming season. Looks like it is going to rain for the next several days anyway. A good friend of mine invited me to go fishing on his boat this afternoon. Needless to say his boat was not accessable due to circumstances out of his control. We decided to practice our fly casting...we need more practice! We were still eager to catch a fish on such a beautiful afternoon. We loaded up the truck and headed canal hopping. We were determined to catch a fish "One way or Another". See ya on the water!

I just posted a new YouTube video that Capt.

Barrett 02/18/2013

Wow, whose idea was that anyway! Glad Brian was able to use my spare jacket on the way home after two days and a night outdoors in a tropical storm. That helmet cam video is probably the most accurate portrayal of what happens when you hook a marlin. You turn at least 3 full circles before taking on any tasks. Can't wait till next year!

Jeff Beck 02/18/2013

This video was shot using a Go Pro camera and the software used is imovie. Just a side note, it was my first time using a Go Pro and making a movie. The Go Pro Camera is a great tool that now goes with us on every fishing trip, inshore or offshore.

I finally got the picture of Team OIFC's 8th place overall, 2nd Junior and 1st Lady angler- 50.17 pound King.  I really like the picture, a fishing family.  We ALL worked hard for that fish; it was nice for the kids to see that their hard work and sacrifice was rewarded.  Team OIFC is fired up for 2013

"OIFC to be a GoPro dealer" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 02/17/13
 

The OIFC is going to be a GoPro dealer.  The use of GoPro cameras in filming of fishing action has become a common part of the fisherman's arsenal.  The OIFC is looking forward to being able to offer the best product and accessories that apply to use of the GoPro product for fishing action.

I need help.  Please comment with suggested accessories that we should carry from GoPro.  Your advice is appreciated.

The suction cup mount is a good one. The bicycle mount works good on gaffs, railings and rod butts.

Greg 02/17/2013

Obviously, the float back attachment. If the carry a mount large enough for a T-Top pole, that wopuld be nice. We've been looking for a rod mount that would work with their gimble mount (Melton's carries the attachment) that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, hard to find a moount for less than $150. The aatchment that allows you to stick the camera below the waterline to film the catch is nice. Glad you guys are getting this line. I've watched several of Jacob's vidoes. The trolling torpedo would be cool to show strikes for you offshore guys. Greg Edge

"SHARK!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 02/15/13
 

Great White Shark spotted off OIB. Capt Kevin Sneed just called me from 7 miles offshore and he has a 14' Great White circling his boat- NOW! I looked up the the OCEARCH shark tracking site and Mary Lee was off Bermuda yesterday, but Jenny was off Charleston on Jan 19 and has not pinged yet. So, what do you think. Is it Jenny? Or, are we going to finally admit that there ARE Great Whites off OIB? Kevin said he has video, so stand by.

AND NOW.... I just got this picture of a dead whale that was taken off of Frying Pan Shoals.  Now put this together with the increased Great White Shark activity.  It has been the belief of many that the Great Whites follow the Right Whale migration closely.  I believe we are seeing more whales now than in the past years.  Thus, has their been a migration shift or are there more whales?  Is that secret NAVY submarine sonar detection system pushing the Right Whales closer to shore?  These are all interesting questions.  OK -- let's here your theory?  COMMENT BELOW

Tim Lowry 02/20/2013

Pretty sure my brother & I encountered a great white at the Jungle back in early spring of 2009. It came past the back of the boat as we were trolling. The tail was a couple of feet to one side and the head a couple of feet past the other (the boat was 8 ft wide). So I'm estimating about 12 ft or so. Never heard of them in these waters, so I have never said much about it. I didn't think anyone would believe me. I think they have been here quite a while. Tim Lowry

cane 02/17/2013

I just started teaching kevin how to surf this fall, im going to have to really do a lot of explaining now...

W. Parker 02/15/2013

I think they have been here just like the Bluefin, somehow they have managed to stay under the radar, and there's not a lot of fisherman out in ocean during the winter,so how would you know unless you stuck a radio transmitter on one .





"Great White" | Get Busy | 02/15/13
 

We finally got the video shot by Capt. Kevin Sneed hailing from Holden Beach of the great white shark arounf his boat.  Kevin said he was 7 miles off  Holden Beach.  Click here to view the video on our Ocean Isle Fishing Center Facebook page..Thanks for posting Kevin.   Next time jump in and get some underwater shots.

"Marine Recreational Fishing Forum February 16th" | Get Busy | 02/13/13
 

The 2013 N.C. Marine Recreational Fishing Forum, organized by *North Carolina Sea Grant* , will be held on Feb. 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., at North Carolina State University's *McKimmon Center* in Raleigh. The event is designed for recreational anglers, fisheries scientists, resource managers, elected and appointed officials, and others with an interest in the latest happenings in North Carolina marine recreational fishing. *View the draft agenda* . [image: ncmrff.logo.web_small] "The recreational fishing forum is a unique opportunity to have a discussion outside of the regulatory arena on hot topics of interest to anglers," explains *Susan White*, Sea Grant executive director. "By working with anglers to identify topics and potential speakers, the forum provides a great opportunity to improve engagement and gather input from the marine recreational fishing community." Speakers include *Brad Gentner*, president of *Gentner Consulting Group*and a former economist for the *National Marine Fisheries Service* , who will discuss the economics of marine recreational fishing. *Louis Daniel*, director of the *N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries*, will hold an hour-long "Ask-a-Director" session. The agenda also includes topics on regulators' roles and the difference in fish survivability between recreational discards and catch-and-release, as well as updates from a legislative representative. VIEW THE FORUM live — and ask questions — online at tinyurl.com/a36qybz. Viewers will need to use Microsoft Silverlight, available from www.microsoft.com/silverlight, to watch the live stream.

"Reds Biting?" | Tiberias - 22' | 02/13/13
 

What is going on in the backwater? There are still some redfish hanging tough with us. I have located a large school of upper to over the slot reds. I can not get them to bite anything! I worked them over pretty hard this afternoon for about an hour before moving on to another school. My first two cast in the secondary school got drilled. The first slipped the hook, the second cut the line. I quickly tied on another jighead and tried to compose myself! I started picking them off one by one. Most of them were just below the slot with a couple just making the mark. Tips to catch a few fish this time of year. Shallow, Stealth, Slow, and presistence will get the bite.

The top secret 1/4oz. gold spoon tipped with a gulp curly tail grub(green pumpkin or smoke). First time I have tossed it this year. That was working at slack tide. Once the water got to moving the spoon would not reach the bottom. Pulled out the ole trusty Bass Assassin's...the 4" grey ghost made claim to quite a few more before I headed home in the dark.

Capt. Brant 02/14/2013

What lure/jig was producing the bites?
