"Almost stuck..." | Tiberias - 22' | 03/17/13
 

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!

"Spring Kickoff Cornhole Champ!" | Do Work / OIFC | 03/17/13
 

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!

I am happy, happy, happy to announce that I bought the 1st GoPro sold by the OIFC. I'll add this to my earlier generation GoPro and other cameras in hopes of bringing more pictures to the Fising Report and our Facebook page.

"On the fisheries front..." | OIFC | 03/13/13
 

This should be interesting.  I have been going over some of the proposed actions by the SAFMC Dolphin/Wahoo Committee, whose advisory panel meets two weeks from today.  The committee will be looking at changing the allocation of the Annual Catch Limit between the recreational and commercial sectors.  Currently the recreational sector gets roughly 93%, with the other 7% going to commercial fishermen.  Bear in mind, this is from the NC/VA state line to the Atlantic side of Key West.  There are several alternatives that the committee can vote on.  One of the alternatives is "Do Nothing," which would keep the current recreational limits in place.  That would mean 10 fish/angler per day, with a maximum of 60 per boat.  The idea of a minimum size on dolphin may be revisited.  SC and FL have a minimum size as of today, NC and GA do not.  One option under the topic of wahoo management is the same as was introduced in 2011, limiting wahoo catches to 2/vessel/trip.  Sounds pretty harsh to me, and I don't think the committee will go that route, but it is worth mentioning that it is out there.  I'll keep reading my material, but in the meantime, would love to have some feedback from the fishermen out there.  You guys are who matters, what do you think?

Interestingly enough, SC has introduced another "home rule" bill with regards to their black sea bass fishery.  This bill would allow year round fishing for black sea bass in state waters, which is up to 3 miles out.  Where this matter gets murky is the question of whether or not the assumed weight of these fish would count against our ACL for the entire four state region.  If so, then black sea bass caught in SC state waters could mean a shorter season for everyone in federal waters when the season opens back up.  Very similar to what happened in Florida when the closures first started.  This bill is still in its infancy, so we'll see where it goes.  I have heard that there is some similar legislation being drafted in NC, but I have no concrete evidence that this is the case.

Open to comments, post on here, call me at 910 540 7581, or email me at cmburrows77@hotmail.com.  Let's see how this goes.  Maybe I'll run for Congress next?

The comms are organized and lobby hard while the recs are much less vocal. The comms need to make a living, everyone agrees. They do contribute to the economy of NC too. The recs contribute a lot to the economy as well. Seeing how well the feds have done with the endangered black sea bass the thought comes they must feel a need to get involved with wahoo and dolphin too. The reason being they are interested in protecting jobs, sadly usually their own. Correct, Fl and GA have had a year round BSB season inside state waters. Surely it has had a positive impact on state revenues and costal business'. It is great to hear SC may follow. SC will see an increase in revenue as will business' along the coast. Some of that positive impact SC could receive will be a direct result of a loss in NC. When NC residents find the cost of fuel in SC along with an open season they will make it their 1st choice of fishing year round. As they get to know the area it follows they will vacation with family too. NC should have took charge of their waters long ago.

John 03/15/2013

I doubt your guest would be offended by hearing the opinion of a small business man with a business that relies on fishing.

Rube McMullan 03/14/2013

Good work Chris. I will post a letter I'm sending to Dr. Daniels[Director, NC Marine Fisheries on the sea bass subject[after our spring kickoff Saturday; don't want to offend our guest speaker from NCMF]. Rube

Butch 03/14/2013

Well they WILL add more limits Dolphin in some way. Do nothing for them is not an option. My guess on that is 18" with an 8 fish limit if we are lucky. Wahoo will be restricted also. They closed season for commercial last year for the first time I believe. So you know the recs. are next. I think they will close the season on them too. The really sad thing about all of this is that the fisherman just sit around and take it. Only a very few people that try very hard to represent us and they get almost no support from us. So Mr.Chris you have a long hard road ahead. Let me know and I will try to help. Butch
