"Bitter Sweet" | Tiberias - 22' | 02/25/13
 

Got out for a little while today. Myself and a good friend Joe Zurad battled the bitter cold ENE winds in hopes of catching a redfish. The weatherman was dead on with the wind direction, but where was that sunshine until 2 pm today? We woke up to cloudy conditions and never saw the sun peak at us once. This made it very difficult to scout out and see the redfish. Water conditions were very clear, but again low light conditions made it tough. The water temperature started off at 49 degrees. When the water temp gets into the 40's the fish really seem to get sluggish. We moved around looking hard and watching water temps. We found some water reaching the 51 degree mark and got our first bite of the day. We worked the area over pretty hard without another sniff.  We moved to another area and found some more water around that 51 degree mark. The bite was on! The majority of the fish were just in the lower slot around 19 inchs or so. Joe finally got a bite and landed a nice red. Bitter sweet!  We ended the day with a dozen reds, not too shabby for February.  See ya on the water!

What  were they biting? The 4" sea shad by Bass Assassin in grey ghost tied to the end of my line! If you look real close you can see one hanging out of the fish's mouth in the picture. Don't forget the red jigheads!

"Monkey'n Around" | Do Work / OIFC | 02/24/13
 

We just couldn't sit inside any longer with the nice weather and calm seas close to the beach. Camdyn, Capt. Rickey and myself loaded up the Do Work and put her in the water. We had several missions planned for today's trip. So with that in mind, we ran out the inlet and set our course toward the Jim Caudle Reef. First thing to do was launch Camdyn's monkey kite. So we hooked it up to a rod and let it go. Just hearing that speed master as that kite went up brought a smile to my face. After Camdyn got the kite almost out of sight, she decided that it was time to start reeling it back in. We did this several times until Camdyn decided she had enough. That was great practice for her for this up coming season. After that I wanted to play with the new side scan sonar we had installed, I only have one word, "AWESOME". It's going to take some time to learn how to use it, but I think it's going to be a great tool. Below are a few pictures from todays trip.

"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!

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.
