Captain Brant and 1st Mate Derrick were joined by Patrick, Lane (17), Patrick, Jr.(15) and Olivia (11) of Charlotte, N.C. on a 6 hr trip.  As seen below they caught an amberjack, cobia, mahi and king.  Somewhere in there is a spanish.  It seems that Patrick had the hot hand landing the majority of the catch.

A charter trip is a perfect way to spend a part of your family vacation.

"Pigg's World" | Get Busy | 07/08/12
 

Steve Pigg wrote in and  wanted to let everyone  know his son Branson Pigg caught his first flounder this past weekend, and it was the biggest catch of the week! He snagged this 21 incher at the deep hole at the second entrance into the canals. He was fishing a carolina rig (purchased at OIFC) with a pogie. Steve attached a picture of the catch and the dinner displaying that the flounder did not go to waste.

"Response" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/07/12
 

Art..We got a ton of responses regarding identifying and it seems your fish is an Atlantic Big Eye.  You won't kill your family if you feed it to them, in fact it is supposed to be very good.

Bryan Freeman said::Ricky, that red fish in question is a Toro Snapper, otherwise known as an Atlantic Bigeye.  They are quite tasty.

Daniel Simmons responded:I'm pretty certain they are called "bigeyes". Google it and see if that isnt the same species. I used to catch them nite fishing in the keys on the reef. Their eyes glow red at nite and look ferocious as can be. They are actually good table fare very soft, white meat

Scottie Richardson said:"Yep..thats a Short Bigeye."


And Joe Seegers responded:If that's a Rosefish, they're delicious, but I thought they had black bellies."

Many thanks to Bryan Freeman, Daniel Simmons,  Scottie Richardson & Joe Seegers for your feedback!

P.S.  I have no idea why some of the type is bold..DUH

"Mixed bag 7/02-05/12" | Get Busy | 07/07/12
 

I had to get out of the ICW this week to avoid getting run over and sea sick. Boat wakes have been killer.With water temps bumping 90 degrees even the fish have been sweating. Shaded docks and deep water. Slow down your fishing. I did spend some time down at the Sunset Bridge and would like to remond everyone to slow down for the new NO WAKE zone there at the ramp. Thanks.

"Afternoon Heat!" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/05/12
 

Andy Barge and his boys joined me this afternoon for a half day backwater trip. After a tough morning I had some serious concerns on our chances of success. Why worry? The anchor had not even settled in the mud good before Daniel pulled the trigger on a nice 3.1 pound flounder. That kept us in our first spot for about 30 minutes without another bite...hmmm? We slid down the bank a piece and started floating live shrimp. That produced two small reds and a sheepshead. We changed gears back to flounder fishing. Phillip got in on the action quickly landing back to back flounder, 3.8 and 4.1 pounds. We landed a couple more shorts there before the tide sent us on the move. We went back on the search for the redfish. It was Daddy's turn! Andy drilled a solid 25 inch redfish to polish off our afternoon trip! Awesome! Thank you guys for fishing with me! See ya on the water!

"Act One, Take Two...and Action" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/05/12
 

Tripp and Jenn joined me for a half day backwater adventure this morning. Our first stop produced two lightning fast runs, but both were very long releases. We struggled to find anything quite like those first two bites. Jenn landed a flounder and a bluefish. Tripp saved the day by landing a nice 6.5lb sheepshead in the last 5 minutes of our trip. Awesome young couple! I wish the best for you guys in the future! Jenn don't forget to send me that autographed picture... Thank you guys for fishing with me! See ya on the water!
