"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.

Today marked another mile stone in my recovery: first serious fishing trip.  The weather forecast was right and I received an invite to fish with good friend Joe Seegers of the Sputhport area aboard his boat Hooked Up.   Joe spent most of his early years working as a mate out of Hatteras, and I looked forward to learning some of his tricks.  I was very impressed.  Through the day we hammered away at the Blackfin and Skipjack Tuna while sprinkling in the occasional Wahoo and Sailfish.  By day end we had 7 Skipjack, 8 Blackfin, 2 Wahoo (1 @ 60 #) and went 1 for 3 on Sailfish.  We spent the entire day working the inshore side of the Steeples.  Thanks to Joe and great crew and friends Rich Carcich and Scott  Myerson and of course my brother Barrett who was assigned my care taker for the day.  Much more fishing awaits in my near future.  Stay tuned.

"stream bound" | Real-Time Update | 09/27/12
 

Headed out this morning aboard the Hooked Up with Capt Joe Seegers. Wahoo is the objective. Likely fishing between Blackjack and steeples. It's a beauti ful morning on the water. Amped up and ready to put some meat on the deck. You'd think capt Brant would be a little more enthusiastic for his first return to the bluewater! It was an early morning :)

"At It Again" | Get Busy | 09/26/12
 

Tommy "Flatfish" Helms took a little time away from showing real estate the 22nd to get in a little flounder fishing.  He said he had to cut his day short and most of his fish were caught in the last 20 minutes of his trip.

"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.

"Make Up Gulf Stream Charter" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/25/12
 

Weather is great and the Wahoo's/Blackfins are in town...Not to mention, I saw more Sailfish last weekend than I have ever seen in our waters.  I have 4 openings for Friday and Sunday.  If you want to head offshore to catch some of the most aggressive and best eating fish in the ocean, give us a call at 910-575-FISH to reserve your spot.  Cost is $400 per person.

"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
