Just adding another picture of one of Bonecrusher's trout. He's become obsessed and is a crazed demonic individual determined to dominate the OIFC Rodeo Leader Board.
I am sure the 26th of December, the day of Capt. Rickey's Speck Tacular Trout Tournament only motivate him more. He's determined to become the Dale Earnhardt of In Shore fishing!
From Ricky Rozier....
Saturday December 8 I went to the 100/400 and the BlackJack aboard the boat ON
TIME with Rick Rogers, Tim Coleman, Wayne Kinlaw and my self Ricky Rozier. We
landed 5 blackfin a 35lb wahoo and 70lb wahoo had a great day of fishing but
did get caught in the fog coming in. Thanks to the friends i fished with.
Hope to fish another day good people.
Count down to the day after Christmas and the Captain Rickey's Spec Tacular Trout Tournament, Dec 26th.. Entry fee is $50 with a "winner take all " pot plus bragging rights. Entry is simple...Send your money or bring it to the Captain's meeting which is the night before and usually conducted leaning against my truck in the parking lot at the OIFC. Rules are....catch a trout from a boat...the same day and weigh it in at the OIFC during specified weigh in times.
There will be one heck of a meal and happy hour tournament night at Dr. Morphes' house on the Shallotte River.
Here’s a couple of shots from weekender in
Thanks for letting us see those monsters Brian
Joe Seegers fished with Joe Elphick aboard the Box Office out of Wrightsville Beach. They fished theSteeples area. Although the had lots of fish on the boat by Joe's stamdards it was "kinda slow".
Dwight and Alex McFadden from the Jersey Shore visited the OIFC today. We struck up a conversation about Hurricane Sandy and the damage caused by it. They do not live near the shore but shared the pictures of boats that had washed up in their neighborhood.
They had many interesting stories about how it was during and after the storm.
A young man and his grandad came in the OIFC today and it quickly became obvious to Capt. Brant and I that Alex was the real deal when it comes to inshore fishing. The short story is Alex was kind enough to share his double trout rig with us and gave us permission to make and sell it.
I've tied a couple and we'll proudly be selling Capt. Alex's Double Trout Rigs in a couple of days.
There were also several people in telling us they are catching trout almost every place,,,shallow creeks, the Jetties and around the docks on the ICW. It seems the hot lures today are the Salt Water Assassin Sand Shad on an 8th oz jig head and the Gulp New Penny Shrimp and Grub on a jig head. I was also given a report that flounder were still being caught.
Capt. Parker and I escaped the dog pound for just a few hours Wednesday afternoon in hopes of finding a few trout. It did not take us very long to start fine tuning our presentation and start putting trout in the box. I worked several colors of Bass Assassins with many of them getting short strikes, but Albino ghost was getting the hook to them. Capt. Parker and I managed to put a nice limit together for dinner. The trout continue to hang around and are biting a variety of baits. I believe presentation is just as important as choice of bait. Key points to remember...the water is cold, so slow it down...the water is clear, so be quiet...live shrimp or gulp shrimp are working well under a float...key is to make sure your bait is close to the bottom. Slip floats work best so you can adjust your depth from one location to the next. I still prefer working soft plastics slowly feeling the tell tell thump of a fish! I love that feeling! See ya on the water!
