I will post a report on this new program this evening and follow it up with a demonstration video this week. Stand by. I got lots of good feedback at the Kickoff and lots of positive comments- this might be big?

David, Dave, and Terry joined me for a half day of backwater fishing on Friday afternoon. We started off in the skinny waters behind Sunset Beach tossing artificials without a bite. I made a pretty risky move into some skinny water around tubbs inlet. The water was falling fast and time was not on our side. I got the boat to hold in good position. Tossed the first live mud minnow under the dock and a 28" red got us started! We caught a few more just short and just in the lower slot. I told my guys we have got to get out of here! I was about 15 minutes from getting stuck. I managed to drag the boat across the sand bar with current, wind, and trolling motor helping us out. We made it to the safety of the waterway and hit a few docks. We picked up one more little red. We surveyed some of the docks we fished and saw plenty of nice reds that have not found their appetite yet. Spring is trying to push old man winter outta here. As the water warms and live bait gets more abundant these fish should start to bite more regularly. See ya on the water!
A new addition to the OIFC's Spring Kickoff was the game of Corn Hole. It was an instant hit!The 1st place winners of the Corn Hole family division, for the spring kick off were Captain Chris Dawson and his daughter Lady Angler Miss Cassie Dawson.
Capt. Brant had a lot going on all day. There were speakers, awards for the OIFC 2012 Rodeo, drawings for some really cool prizes, vendors and our own Dr. Terry singing at the G. Mack.
The 20% off EVERYTHING was a smashing success! The Kickoff was THE time to buy fishing supplies and tackle. The biggest surprise seller was the Hero3 Cameras. I cannot think of anyplace, even the GoPro site where you can find them at the price they were sold yesterday. Customers knew it too and took advantage.
Personally, I had a ball!! I got to see a bunch of my fishing buddies, make my usual smart remarks, laugh, and tell stories. If you missed it, be sure to catch our next big event, The Far Out Shoot Out May 10-18t!
Thank you everyone who came out!
