"Meanwhile At The Natonals" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/09/12
 

Below are pictures of Eddy Jones and Trask Cunningham fishing aboard Corey Bellemy's "Choice of Two-Beck's and Ellas" in the Gulf at the SKA Nationals.

Corey and his family are taking a much deserved break after the devastating fire that consumed Beck's Seafood Restaurant in Calabash.

"Look Closely" | Get Busy | 11/09/12
 

I was asked a load ( a southern unit of measurement) of times today "Where can I catch the trout?"  Look close at the background in the pictures of Scott Allen's picyures and you will find the answer.

"Get your trout on!" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/09/12
 

Steve and Byran joined me on this cold November morning for some trout action. I had to re-think my thinking as my tide clock is a little off on the time change. I pulled up to a spot that looked about right for the tide level. I picked a weapon of choice and made a cast simply for instructional purposes to show my guys the presentation we would be using for today. About the time I got the words "just let it fall slowly towards the bottom keeping the line tight" out of my mouth. THUMP! There he is! I quickly handed the pole to Bryan and loaded Steve up with a weapon. Both anglers were hooked up! Bryan must have caught five in row and then 2 boats pulled up throwing anchors. That scattered the fish, so we made a move. We continued to pick at them for a little while, but had not found them like our first spot. I made a move and a few adjustments. Fish on! Fish on! I got one! We ended the day with 20 to 25 trout, 5 to 6 reds, and a flounder. The water has really gotten clear making it very easy to spot fish, yet spook them at the same time. Remember be quiet and keep your distance. We caught all of our fish again casting artificials. My favorite baits are of course 4" Sea Shads by Bass Assassin in various colors. Albino ghost and Green Moon will be the go to colors as the water has gotten gin clear. Good luck out there! See ya on the water!

"Licking Wounds" | N/A | 11/08/12
 

It's been a tough couple days for Team OIFC.  Myself, Chris Bryan, Chris Campbell and Rube competed in the SKA Pro Championship out of Biloxi.  Unfortunately we weren't much competition.  It wasn't for a lack of effort though as we braved 20-25knot north winds for both days of the tournament and traveled almost 400 miles trying to find the right fish.  There were plenty of big king mackerel scaled but we just couldn't seem to get in the right place at the right time.  Our hero or zero/ checkers or wreckers approach to tournament fishing has not paid off yet this year in Biloxi.  The good news is the big show starts tomorrow.  The National Championship will be held over the next two days from Biloxi and we are ready to redeem ourselves.  Most all fishing teams have arrived including a good contingent from Ocean Isle Beach and Brunswick County.  The goal is for one of us to bring the hardware home to Ocean Isle.  The weather is shaping up to be a little better especially tomorrow.  Brant, Amy, Caroline and Brayden are now in town along with my wife stephanie and we along with Rube will join forces to get Team OIFC back on track.  Stand by for an update tomorrow evening. 

Rube is really focusing on the mission at hand.  He was last seen having a long conversation with the mount of "kingzilla" located here at the Isle of Capri hotel in the restaurant.

Some folks have asked about the results.  They are posted and in someone's famous words.."trust me".  Click on this link then click on any of the topics on the left side of the page and you'll see the complete results.

This reporter has been a little slow posting because I got a new computer and am still figuring it out.

"OIB Manatee" | Get Busy | 11/08/12
 

Paul McIntyre sent us the following post:

I don't know if you'll be able to see them very well, but attached below are pictures I took of a manatee in the main canal behind Ocean Isle Beach. We were only a few feet away from it for several minutes, so we were definitely able to make a positive identification. After a very tough day fishing in the Fall Brawl on Sunday, we were just about back to the house when we saw the manatee easing along just below the surface. It would rise from time to time to breathe. We followed it until it finally turned out the main channel toward the ICW. Don't know if you've ever seen one here before or have heard of anyone seeing one, but we thought it was pretty unique. 

Thanks for sharing Paul

Team OIFC had a blast catching and releasing 30 pounders, but just never got opportunity from a 40+ fish.  Nationals starts Friday and the McMullan family will unite to try to figure out the fishing puzzle which had thus far confused us.  Hopefully we will find a way to get opportunity.  Wish us luck.  The ocean is full of Kings like this 35 pounder.  It will take a pair of 50s to win Nationals!

Ok- we are in Biloxi! Brant, Amy and Brayden are here! We will be attending weigh in for day 1 of the pro championship. Stay tuned. Flying over the Gulf on the way in, the white caps were quite obvious. The forecast was for North winds 20-25kts. Yikes! Then think of running 60-90 miles offshore in that. I'm kinda glad I opted out of that part of the mission; I'm saving my strength for Nationals Friday and Saturday. Stat tuned.

"Locked and Loaded" | N/A | 11/05/12
 

Today had Team OIFC tightening up loose ends (literally) in preparation of the first day of the pro championship king mackerel tournament in Biloxi.  We made one last dash for bait this morning without much success.  We made the call to cut the bait mission short and come in to make a few repairs and put the finishing touches on pre tournament preparations.  We are locked and loaded.  The only problem is now the weather forecast has gone to heck.  Currently we are not sure if tomorrow will be a fish day or not.  If it is, teams will be braving 25knot north winds and that coupled with the required long runs makes for a very long day.  We'll know more this evening at the Capts meeting whether or not we are fishing tomorrow.  Either way, we are ready to go.

"Biloxi Bound" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/05/12
 

Amy, Brayden and I load up on a plane in the AM and head for Biloxi.  Barrett and team should be competing in the first day of the Pro tournament (if the weather allows competition).  We will hopefully be at the weigh in to cheer them on.  Caroline and Katelyn fly in on Thursday to complete the team.  We are excited to be headed back to Biloxi.  Win or lose, it is a neat place to fish, and I'm confident we will have a good time.  Stay tuned

"still hunting" | Real-Time Update | 11/04/12
 

Team oifc Biloxi is right on track. Ran several hundred miles in the last t wo days and have hardly sniffed a king mackerel. With that said, never over look the value of knowing where they aren't. Today the weather was great an d we were able to load up on good bait that we will use in the tournament. We did catch a couple kings up to 35lbs. Down here that's like a 15lber at home. Still work to be done but we are closing in.

"Trout???" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/04/12
 

It is no big secret that I love targeting trout with artificial lures. I have had the priviledge of sharing my knowledge and techniques with several clients over the years. There is always a little learning curve to overcome, but once you get the feel for it, GAME ON! I took a guy from Germany yesterday, it was his second time ever holding a fishing pole. Tobyah caught a carolina slam yesterday and had our largest trout around 3 pounds. We ended the day keeping 7 trout, but had quite a few long releases and some short fish. We also had a hand full of 17 inch red drum that are super fun on light tackle. Jimmy and Tobyah both caught a flounder to complete inshore slams, Ethan worked on several trout and red drum. Thank you guys for choosing the OIFC and giving myself the priviledge of being your guide for the day. I enjoyed it! See ya on the water!

Ross, Cody, and Tony joined me Thursday evening for some trout action. We started off very quickly and stayed with the trout most of the afternoon. In fact, we had our limit of trout about 2 hours into the trip. I would estimate that we caught in between 30 to 40 trout with a flounder and 5 redfish in the mix. Again, every fish was caught on artificial lures. Which ones? As always, 4" Sea Shads by Bass Assassin with 1/8oz. jighead in various colors. Ross and Cody have already put a dent in my stock of lures here at the store, so you better hurry while supplies last. Also, Cody is looking for a Tennesse hat, he said he feels like Bill Dance after Thursday's fishing. LOL! I am not sure how long this action is going to stay with us. Last year we caught trout like this consistently through Christmas. I hope the trout stay with us for a while, I love it! See ya on the water!

"Wahoo!" | N/A | 11/03/12
 

Beautiful day today in the Gulf.  Team OIFC is prepping for the SKA's Pro Champioship and National Championship in Biloxi, MS.  Today we did some running.  Not sure total mileage but we left out of Biloxi this morning and headed west to Louisiana and then out the Mississippi river.  Not a whole lot of king mackerel fishing today, mostly just bait collecting.  We did cross paths with this monster wahoo midday.  You'd be amazed at the sounds a speedmaster will make when a 70lb wahoo is on the other end.  Wow!  Tomorrow is more bait and maybe a little pre-fishing.  The weather is magnificent.  Unfortunately supposed to go down hill on Tuesday just in time for the pro championship.  Oh well, enjoying it while we can.
