"As Promised..." | Tiberias - 22' | 10/02/12
 

The offshore fishing has started to really dominate our reports lately. Brant has chained me to the cash register upstairs covering the store and preparing for the busy King Mackerel Tournament season. No doubt the King Mackerel have been making their presence known all up and down the beach. The weather has also cooperated on several weekends lately allowing for anglers to get on the bite. If you are after Kings, now is the time to book that trip. On the other hand, if you are looking for something a little different. Don't forget about our backwater adventures that seek after hard fighting redfish, great eating flounder, and beautiful speckled trout. Fall is the best time to be on the water. Fishing possibilites are endless and temperatures are near perfect. I love it! As promised...Check out this video from one of our backwater trips this year! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIesvKNbo0Y&feature=youtube_gdata

"Release Under Protest" | Get Busy | 10/02/12
 

Chip Herring and his son  Jayce Herring are pictured with this beauty they landed off of Oak Island Saturday while trolling around a school of Spanish Mackerel.  The best part is that mom caught the whole thing on HD video and it was Jayce's first Red Drum.
He was measured and released back to fight another day-under protest from Jayce!

Also pictured is Chip's daughter with the 1st fish she's ever caught.

The good news is the fishing is awesome; inshore, nearshore, offshore- you name it.  The bad news is the charter captains are sitting at the dock twiddling their thumbs and listening to reports of great catches.  All Summer long the OIFC charter captains work themselves to near death in an effort to please their customers.  Many a day is spent under a blistering sun, enduring a steady 15kt SW wind with 3-4' seas - all in hopes of getting one saving grace bite from a King or Cobia, maybe even a Mahi.  And now, here we are experiencing only the very beginning of a great Fall fishing season.  Kings and Wahoo are jumping in the boat and there are no customers for the charter captains to take fishing. 
THE WEATHER FORECAST IS AGAIN LOOKING AWESOME FOR THE WEEKEND AND THE OIFC HAS CHARTER BOATS AVAILABLE.  (910) 575-3474
We are taking reservations for groups or singles.  A Stream trip is planned Saturday and there are 3 spots left open.  Cost is $400 per person.
Let's go fishing!

"S Open this weekend" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/01/12
 

The US Open King Tourney, the granddaddy of them all is this weekend. I remember fishing I think the 2nd US OPEN in something like 1978. Caught a 30+ and won some fishiing reels. Win today and you walk away with $25k +. I remember one year we came in 2nd and won almost $35k. If you're going to come in second this is a good one to do.

The weather looks good for the weekend as the low will be gone and a weak cold front comes thru which should give us perfect lite northerly winds. Bait is everywhere, there was a good bite this weekend at Yaupon[the Rumble was won there with a 38lber] so look for it to be a beach bite. For all the fishermen come on by OIFC as we have everything you need, premade rigs, Capt Brant cast nets to catch the fall "smart" pogies, chum,speedmaster King outfit specials....and all the info we can come up with. Our charter boats will be fishing so be sure to check with us as to whats happening. We will also keep the web site updated on updates. Come on down, it's going to be a great weekend of fishing[and somebody will win a whole bunch of $$].

"Kings And Spanish For A Day" | Tiberias - 22' | 10/01/12
 

The King bite REALLY turned on Saturday just in time for the Rumble In The Jungle.  But not everyone fished the tournament.  Several folks dropped by the OIFC and Dr. Terry took pictures and information for the report.

The spanish bite has been extraordinary for the past couple of weeks right on the beach.  The 1st pic is of Christa Lee with her 6.8# citation spanish.  Christa was fishing aboard the E Z Now and hooked her spanish with a naked pogey at the 90's,

The 2nd pic is of kings from the shark infested waters at the Yorke Hole. Curt O'Donnell, Chris O'Donnell and Vicki Ayers caught 6 kings Saturday after 11 am aboard their boat "Captain's Choice".  They were using medium balleyhoo with skirts. They caught all their kings on top and near the prop wash.Picture 4 is of 'Team Hard Knot Life" made up of of Mike, Taylor, Casey and Drew.  They fished the Shark Hole and caught 3 kings (20, 15, and 12#'s, and 2 cobia on of which was a citation 42# fish.

Picture 3 is of Bill Caldwell and Kenny Clark with one of  three 40 + lb. cobia while fishing the Rumble Saturday. They were near the Shark Hole. Their kings were too small but the guys will eat good.

Picture 4 is of team "Hard Knot Life" who caught 3 kings, a 20, 15 and 12 # and 2 cobia, one being a 42# citation fish while fishing the Shark Hole.

Picture 5 is Robbie Holshouser, Brad Durham,and Ryan Smith with the fish they caught Saturday.

Thanks everyone for your reports and for weighing your fish at the OIFC.  A special thanks to the OIFC's Dr. Terry for his on dock reporting and pictures.

"Saturdays fishing report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/30/12
 

Saturday saw a all out assualt on the Kings in many different spots. There was a good bite of teenagers at the Shark Hole and the Jungle. The tourney winning fish came from Yaupon and there was a good bite there around noon. 2nd/3rd came from the Fairway Buoys. Bait is absolutely everywhere, from the breakers to 40 feet of water. It appears the fall king season is going to be epic. As soon as the water cools down a little there should be an explosion along the beach. My guess is the US Open will as usual be in the river channel and come Fall Brawl tourney, Shallotte Inlet may be the spot as it has in years past. All in all, it looks like fall in the Carolinas and it just don't get any better than this.

Capt OC is on a near shore charter wearing out the Spanish, but he called me to say he is hearing a lot of radio talk with a good bite of Kings at the Shark hole and 15 mile rocks.

"Popcycle Shortage" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/27/12
 

A Severe Cigar Minnow shortage has hit fishing.  Nobody can get Cigar Minnows
 because hurricane Isaac in the Gulf shut down fishing early and thus the shortage.  So, Captain Brant has bought Jigger Ballyhoo as a replacement.  "Jigger Hoos" are small ballyhoo. They are packed roughly 20+/- per pack. They are VERY good substitutes as they are more durable than Cigar Minnows and can be trolled faster.  They work great on OIFC dead bait rigs.  The only thing that has to be done different than Cigar Minnows is to break off the bill before rigging.
