"Morning Trip" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/24/12
 

This morning's trip...Drew, Allister, and Jason joined me for a few hours in the backwater. We caught some short reds, big stingrays, black drum, flounder, and a beautiful 26+ inch red drum. As always I left the water wanting more, but considering the conditions not a bad morning. Of course, anyday on the water beats being stuck behind a desk! Thank you guys for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"Shifting Gears" | Get Busy | 07/23/12
 

This is 2/3 if the slam that Jeff Wallen caught weekend before last.  Jeff caught 25-30 trout and 3 over the slot reds.  The flounder was pushing 21' and 3lbs.  The largest trout was 2.5lbs. with several in the 2-2.5 range.  He only kept this trout because it died.  All the big ones are full of eggs this time of year.

"Here today gone tomorrow" | Get Busy | 07/23/12
 

Looking for fish seems to be the challenge of every day. Where you caught them today does'nt mean they will be there tomorrow. The water has been hotter than last reported mid 80's to low 90's. There has been a steady bite at the jetties but 20 to 30 kt s.w winds make that almost impossible to fish. With the high winds also means very dirty water. We did witness the Manatee that was cruising the ICW. Only the third time I've seen 1 of those.

Another fisherman's words...

Today Legendary Fisherman, Surfer and Contractor Jeff Lee passed away. He was a close family friend my entire life. He was my first sponsor (he owned a shop) his belief in me at an early age helped to pave the path for my competive sucess and career in the surf industry. Jeff was a seasoned angler and tournament champion. When I began my angling career Jeff always shared great advice and skill...s he learned in his lifetime of fishing. Those that know Jeff knew he lived life to the fullest. I always enjoyed hearing stories from him or his surfing and angling buddies of there legendary escapades.
So to my dear friend Jeff, Thank you for all that you have done for me in my lifetime. I hope you are proud of the man I have become.
Captain Cane Faircloth
Holden Beach, NC USA

Come join the Holden Beach community as we celebrate Jeff Lee's life with an memorial Paddle Out following his service at Brunswick Islands Baptist Church. Please help me spread the word to Jeff's extensive family of waterman.

"Flounder and 'maters" | Get Busy | 07/22/12
 

Our good buddy Tommy Helms and his partner Trent hit the flounder circuit again, landing some nice flat fish.  The pic with the 2 flounder came from the 465 using pin fish.  He didn't say where the 4.88 lb'r came from.  Tommy also sent pictures of his tomatoes so I figure he's gonna have flounder and fresh tomatoes, or the bite was slow so he just gonna have 'mater samiches.

"Inshore Reports" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/21/12
 

The heavy wind has the offshore fleet passing trips to the inshore boats making things very busy for both Capt. Jeff and myself. Thus, the reason for such an absence in our reporting. Fishing has been tough the last few days, but both Jeff and I have been up to the challenge. We have managed to pull out some decent fish on most of our trips. I can't say we have been getting numbers, but we have managed to stretch the lines with some over the slot reds, plenty of good eating size black drum and maybe even sneak in a keeper flounder. We greatly appreciate the business and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our fishermen and fisherwomen. Thank you all for fishing with us! Check out our facebook page for more pictures from this past weeks action! See ya on the water!

"Fishing Fraternity Loses Past Champ- Jeff Lee " | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/20/12
 

This afternoon Jeff Lee passed away from heart failure.  Jeff hailed from Holden Beach, NC and was a building contractor by trade but fishermen by passion.  I knew Jeff from way back and remember in my very early years of tournament fishing striving to win like he did -- fishing back then on the Tooth &  Nail.  It must have been back in the mid to late 90's when he was the hottest fishermen in the Carolinas, and I believe it was because he was fishing the now famed 30/30 area when few others were.  In recent years he was a member of the King Hunter fishing team, winning the 2009 Rumble in the Jungle tournament and placing high in many others.  Jeff will be missed and is further evidence that you just don't know how many days you have left, so live them all to the fullest. 
Tight Lines and screaming reels for Jeff Lee.

"OIFC update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/20/12
 

Thought I'd touch base- just in case you are not here- IT IS WINDY !!!!  Holy cow.  The pier wind gauge at Ocean Crest is reading a steady 30-35 kts for the better part of today.  I was hoping to stay in the 15-20 kt range, but there is no doubt this wind is going to mess up our fishing.  It couldn't last long, it was just too good.  But, what the past 2 weeks of King fishing proves is that the fish are out there- they do exist.  However, they are sensitive to their environment and thus are not willing to feed unless conditions are favorable or they simply leave.  The most important factor is water clarity.  Silt in the water will not cut it.  So, for now we are left watching the wind blow.  The charter boats did not run the past 2 days, and it looks like we may be stuck in for a few more.  We will see.

"On Leave" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/19/12
 

Capt. Ryan Strickland is home on a short break from his tugboat career and decided he hadn't had enough of the salt water.  So he went bottom fishing with a friend in 165 feet deep water and scored his limit. 

The OIFC has 2 good friends living the "Tug Life", Capt. Ryan and Capt. Zach.  We wish them the best.  You can friend them on FB and see some cool pictures of places they visit.
