Grayson Russ, who is the Jr. Angler with his dad, Toby and granddad, Rusty on the Mr. Goodhands, shot his 1st deer while hunting with his dad. They took a father/son deer hunting trip to Texas and Grayson shot his deer on Jan. 3rd.
It's good to see fathers and their sons and daughters enjoying the outdoors together. Congratulations Grayson and Toby, we know your are proud.

Thanks for fishing with us!
Here is an underwater video of redfish I have been watching the last few days. I probably saw 50+ fish in three different schools today. As you can see in the video some bigger fish are mixed in with the smaller ones. These fish are very spooky as they are in less than 2 feet of water. I actually had 25 minutes of video, but got mostly mud boils as they spooked from seeing the camera I guess. I will continue to modify my efforts. Today was cloudy, so I will give it another shot when the sun comes out. See ya on the water!
Jimmy that fished with me earlier this year sends a warm breeze our way.
Sure Jacob go ahead and post the fishing photos! We caught 9 Bone Fish and two Mangrove Snapper. The largest Bones where 7 and 11 pounds and I never felt that I was ever going to get the fish to the boat at either time, Ethan boated 5 Bones all before I landed my first one. Needless to say I was starting to wonder if I was ever going to get on the board. I wish you, family and the rest of the good folks at the OIFC a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Another quick late afternoon trip. I have been given an awesome Christmas gift and looking forward to getting some great video on the water. Here is what I was able to capture this afternoon. I hope to get some serious underwater footage soon. See ya on the water!
I have been absent from the fishing scene since December 5th. My boat's motor started to signal an overheating issue. I quickly replaced the thermostats on both port and starboard sides. Ran the boat only to get the same alarm. Move on to the water impeller. During my inspection of the lower unit and connecting parts I found some more serious issues. I found several cracks in the exhaust housing and the tuner had also seperated from the lower bracket. Needless to say some long overdue tender love and care needed for the motor. I have replaced all gaskets, housing, plugs, filter, gear lube, etc...Motor is ready to roll.
Itching to get on the water today. Beautiful day! I got snagged...My wife's dad stopped in for a visit and delayed my departure. After his visit my wife dragged me grocery shopping to the dreaded Wal-mart. Could the lines be any longer?! Finally, 4pm home at last. Grabbing gear and heading out the door. Awwwh!!! It feels good to be back on the water. I quickly looked for live bait, but no such luck. I pulled out the artificials and went to work. Picked off a few red drum then a trout. Moved further back into the shallows and found a large school of small reds. Picked off a couple more trout. I did not hang Mr. Big today, but had a blast catching 15 or more reds and 3 trout. I love it! See ya on the water!
4" Bass Assassin in Albino Ghost 1/8th ounce red jighead...2 feet of water 50.8 degrees...rising tide...
OIFC Pro Staffer Brandon Sauls and Mark Stacy aboard the Cream Puff in ankle deep water today :thumin' some piggies". I never know what is going to come out of their mouths.
A big thanks to Clay Morphes for once again hosting the Capt. Rickey's Spec Tacular Trout Tournament at his home on the Shallotte River. A big time was had by all.
As soon as we thaw out we're going to start planning a flounder tournament..Stay tuned!
