"Getaway Why Waste Fuel" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/14/13
 

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.

It looks like our size/creel limits may stay the same but season open all year???????? The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council approved measures to increase the Annual Catch Limit (ACL) for black sea bass in the South Atlantic region during a special one-day meeting held yesterday. In a compromise vote, the Council approved an increase from the current limit of 847,000 pounds (all measures in whole weight) to 1,814,000 pounds. The increase would be effective for 2013, 2014, and 2015. For 2016 and beyond, the ACL would be 1,756,450 pounds until changed. The meeting, held via webinar, was called by the Council to help expedite the proposed increase for the 2013 fishing year. A recent stock assessment shows that the black sea bass stock in the South Atlantic is no longer undergoing overfishing, is not overfished, and the stock is rebuilt. The assessment, as reviewed by the Council's Scientific and Statistical Committee, allows for an increase the ACL. If approved by the Secretary of Commerce, the changes would be implemented through Regulatory Amendment 19 to the Snapper Grouper Fishery Management Plan. The amendment initially included three alternatives, a "no action" alternative leaving the current ACL in place and a second alternative to increase the ACL to 2,133,000 pounds in 2013, a value equal to the Acceptable Biological Catch as recommended by the Scientific and Statistical Committee, with a decrease in catch limits in subsequent years. The third, more conservative alternative would have allowed for an increase to 1,756,450 pounds per year for 2013-2015. After reviewing public comment and discussing the three alternatives, a fourth alternative to increase the ACL to 1,814,000 pounds was introduced and approved by the Council. The alternative represents a compromise between the two initial values considered by the Council in alternatives 2 and 3. During the meeting, Council members acknowledged the need to provide fishermen an opportunity to maximize harvest of the recovered stock given hardships experienced by both commercial and recreational fishermen. Harvest levels for black sea bass have been reduced since 2006 to end overfishing and rebuild the stock. The current ACL has severely restricted fishing seasons as the stock recovered. Fishermen have consistently expressed frustration in limited seasons while seeing increases in the number and size of black sea bass. However, Council members also expressed concerns that allowing the maximum harvest of over 2 million pounds could allow overfishing to occur in the future, given that the value is above the Maximum Sustainable Yield for black sea bass. The compromise alternative was approved by the Council by a 10 to 3 vote, with Council members agreeing that an update to the black sea bass stock assessment will be needed by 2016. The Council's intent is to have the increase in place in 2013 in order to help extend this year's fishing season, which begins June 1st for both commercial and recreational fishermen. The ACL is currently divided between the two sectors, with 57% allocated to recreational fishermen and 43% to the commercial sector. The Council also approved an action in the amendment to implement a seasonal closure (November 1 through April 30) for the commercial black sea bass pot fishery. The seasonal closure would address potential gear interactions with large whale migration and right whales during calving season. Measures approved by the Council in Regulatory Amendment 19 must be reviewed by NOAA Fisheries before final approval and implementation. In addition to black sea bass management, the Council addressed proposed measures affecting Gulf of Mexico for-hire Federal permit holders due to joint management plan requirements. Additional details about the meeting, including a copy of Regulatory Amendment 19 to the Snapper Grouper Fishery Management Plan, are available from the Council's website at www.safmc.net. The Council will receive an update on the status of the amendment and the Secretarial review process during its next scheduled meeting June 10-14, 2013 in Stuart, Florida.

""We Waxed 'Em"" | Real-Time Update | 05/14/13
 

As Captain Jacob Frick is famous for saying, *"We Waxed ‘Em." * Two small-boat class left from OIFC dock at 6:00AM Friday May 10th, and here are the details: *22WA SeaFox (Yamaha 150) – 1 Blackfin Tuna, 6 Mahi boated* · Terry’s boat, fishing with Chris Chambers of Fayetteville and his dad Steve of Spokane, WA · First line in (9:00) Blackfin (11.8lb) on Purple Cedar Plug (130lb mono) 4miles short of Blackjack · Six Mahi on a mix of cedar plugs (purple, mahi) and Pink/White Jet-head CLJ25 (select Ballyhoo) · Largest female Mahi (16.8 lb) on planer-downrigger on pink/white jet-head CLJ25 35 ft. down · Majority of Mahi caught on long-lines, but created problems getting “doubles” boated · Unsuccessful casting about Noon into schooling Mahi surrounding the boat, but they “nibbled” · Fished mostly *on* Blackjack mark, and then 3 miles along the ledge in 200-240 ft. of water · Water temps ranged from 76.4-78.00 degrees, about 3 hours out and in, 70 gallons of fuel · No attempt to catch Wahoo, too busy with Mahi and Tuna and using lighter remaining tackle · Wind picked up at 1:00, we left at 2:10PM, got back to OIFC dock at 5:20, 18-25 knots · Problems: early and late rough water, reel failures, break-offs, tangled lines, no auto-pilot *22.5CC Sea Hunt (Yamaha 150) – 2 Wahoo, 1 Mahi, 1 Tuna boated* · Mike Lee’s boat, fishing with his friend Justin Privette, both from Mint Hill, NC · Tuna caught on Green Machine · Mahi on Black/Purple Tuna Feather · Wahoo on Ballyhoo using a planer and one on orange/black marauder · Burned 53 gallons, running about 25-38 knots · Problems: Wahoo broke the planer (welds on brace), several lost fish Twice now I’ve been to the Gulfstream (64 miles) in my own boat, using my own rigs, and it has been very memorable and intense. This time, I drove out and back, did all set-ups, some reeling, and gaffing all day. “Yes,” Corey, “I got blood all over me *and* my boat.” I did a lot of planning on this one, but *my “hats off” to Team OIFC *for all the help and encouragement, and a special thanks to Captain Brant, mentor *par excellance *!

"Fwd: May 8 Gulf Stream" | Real-Time Update | 05/14/13
 

---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: "Chris Dew" Date: May 9, 2013 10:26 PM Subject: May 8 Gulf Stream To: "Fish Report" Cc: We started out heading toward the Blackjack Hole. With about 15 miles to go we began seeing a lot of flying fish and good water temps. After a few more miles we pulled back and Capt. Derek began deploying our spread. I sent a cedar plug way back as he dropped a blue/white rigged ballyhoo on the left long rigger. Before he could complete the spread we had our first Mahi on. From that point we had a consistent bite for the remainder of the day. We worked on toward the BJ and fished 78 degree water with several more mahi paying us a visit. At 1 o'clock we switched tactics and jigged along the ledge. Both wind and seas had picked up just enough to make jigging a challenge. We did manage a few AJ's. I decided to move inshore to about 120-130 feet and bottomed fished there. We were rewarded with a mixed bag of grouper,snapper, and triggerfish. To Russ Hayes and friends,we thank you for choosing us to be your charter crew. A great group of guys and we look forward to fishing with you again.
