"Shhh..Don't Tell Anyone Where We Caught Them" | Get Busy | 09/26/12
 

Ed Morris' grandson Sean took him out on the "Chillin'" last Saturday and they each landed a nice Red Drum.............not for eating though.......they were both over 28" +/-, but great fun to catch. They caught them right around high tide on pogies...........not saying where, just look at the pix

Thx Ed and it will be our little secret

Today Capt Brant, Derek and I took a few kids on an educational field trip. (wink wink) Ian Bowen,Zeb Clemons, Sidney Jones, Luke Hardee, Addi Hardee, Caroline and Brayden McMullan prove to be quite the little fishermen. They began with angling the Spanish mackerel and by the end of the trip they were hand lining the fish in all by themselves. They were the best little crew we have ever had! The ages range from Brayden at age 3 to Luke age 11.

"Stick Slinger's Family Fishing" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/25/12
 

Jim Bowen reports the kings didn’t want to cooperate on Sunday…. SO, after lots of catch and release in @ 65’ of water he hit the inshore reefs and put his 8 yr old, Joshua, on some nice fighting barracuda. 

Jim said it was a great day, he even had "ol' Captain Roger Gales" on the boat while he was home for the weekend.

Great to see a father-son fishing team and equally as great to have Rog back on the water fishing.

"Priceless Moments!!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 09/25/12
 

The super busy season has come to a end and has given me a little bit of time to spend with my son Jake. This morning we headed out to catch some bait and maybe catch a fish. The shrimp were very plentiful and I may even have enough for supper tonight. We hit the Ocean Isle bridge with the hopes of catching a nice red or black drum. We caught several reds in the lower slot and the trash fish started killing us. We decided to move back into the creeks. We were just looking for a nice black drum for lunch. Jake hooks up with a small flounder. The trash fish were killing us here as well. I baited both lines with a shrimp and tossed them out. Jake's was doing the normal bounce and it appeared he was hooked up with a small fish. Leaving the rod in the holder, Jake started to reel in the small fish to the boat. Well, about half way back to the boat the rod bent in half and line started to tear off the reel. Jake was shocked! He was a little scared and freaked out, so I took over. Get the net Jake! The fish rolled and the tail was huge! After several minutes of battling we landed a 43 inch redfish! In a creek! A couple quick pictures and released the brute to fight another day. On to the OIFC to fill out a citation for my son Jake. I love it! See ya on the water!

"Picture Worthy?" | Tiberias - 22' | 09/25/12
 

I have been absent from reporting lately. The inshore action has been pretty steady as usual with red drum, black drum, sheepshead, trout, and even a flounder in the mix. I am highly anticipating the trout bite to show up like last year. The red drum bite was on fire all summer and now that Fall is in the air, things should get exciting! Flounder continue to hang out on the wrecks and with this weeks weather should allow most boats to get after them again. Drift or float some live pogies on top while flounder fishing and you could hook a nice King Mackerel. Fall time is our best fishing of the year! Don't miss out! See ya on the water!

"A Good Education Pays Off" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/24/12
 

 William A. "Gus" Lodgek reports he fished on 9/21 in the Black Jack area. He said that thanks to Capt. Brant's Fishing School they put their first Wahoo on their boat, going 2 for 3!  Gus said he did everything the school taught and picked up 2 in the 40lb range.

He also hit a hole in 120 ft deep water and picked up a gag, red, and strawberry grouper, along with triggers, porgy and some pig fish in less than a hour.

"Thanks again to every one at the OIFC they are the best."-Gus

"Capt. Jim At The Stream Saturday" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/24/12
 

Jim Almond brought a variety of great fish by the OIFC this weekend.  His heaviest wahoo 46.5 lbs with the others in the 30 lb range, and if we look at the pictures it looks like he and his crew were fishing in a bathtub.

I sincerely hope this weather holds.

"Watch out for falling kingfish" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/24/12
 

Getting reports up and down the coast of kings skyrocketing from pogy schools along the beach. It's been 50+ years since I was a 12 year old kid honing my king mackeral fishing skills on the Carolina Beach Fishing Pier and in late September thru October we would see kings skyrocketing on pogy schools. Credit has to be given to the folks who got the pogy netting ban thus allowing the population of pogys to replenish such that the kings have a reason to get excited and do their skyrocketing thing. It started with Save Our Pogies which led to the legislative bill stopping commercial netting in Brunswick County. Then last year, the NC Marine Fisheries stepped in and stopped netting throughout our NC waters, and next was the Legislature passing a bill to stop the netting statewide. The end result is what we are seeing now with the massive schools of pogies along the NC coast and the Kings are going nuts. Also watch this fall as other gamefish join in. There will be tarpon, giant redfish, and everything else that swims joining in on the smorgasborg. This should be the best fall fishing season in generations.

And I will also add in that I am forecasting this winter that the Giant Bluefin Tuna will return to our waters. No longer will the massive schools of pogies that appear in mid November off Cape Lookout be wiped out by the netting; which was timed to coincide with the beginning migration of the Bluefins into NC waters. When the Tuna would arrive, they would find the food source they looked for was wiped out and thus they would move on somewhere else in need to fill their huge appetites. Their food source will be there, and in the way nature works, somehow the word will get to the Bluefins that the restaurant is back in business and it will be game on for us anglers. Fishing wise, it's looking great!

Here is a picture of a little tournament held by the members of the Got-em On live bait club on Saturday. The top 5 were all over 5lbs with the 1st place fish weighing over 10 pounds. Hard to guard these guys when they have thier game faces on.

12 year old Daniel Russ worked hard all morning to catch up his and his mom and dad's limit of Spanish.  Nice job Daniel.  The Russ family joined Capt OC on the Carolina Cat this am.  The Spanish bite had been strong up and down the beach in 20-30'.

"Black Jack & Steeples Saturday" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/23/12
 

The crew from Guy C. Lee Building Supplies joined Captains Chris Dew and Steele Park for a 13 hr trip to the Stream.  They caught some nice citation wahoo, one weighing 49.2  lbs. pulling Black Bart high speed lures.  Also in the mix were huge amberjack, and a couple of small tuna.

Making up the charter were "Lee "Big Foot" Hewette, Bryan Strickland, Seth Strickland and Gary Massy.

This past weekend has been beautiful and all the pieces are coming together for a perfect fall fishing season.
