"Jolly Mon Day 1" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/23/12
 

Those who stayed home because they thought the kings were not around made an error.  I am not sure how many boats weighed in but there was a "boat Load" of kings, mahi and cobia brought to the scales.

Right now D. Canady, Preston Nowell and T.K. Nowell are in the lead with an impressive 41.6 lb king..WOW!!!  In a solid second is Corey Bellamy, Trask Cunningham and EDDIE JONES.  Below are pix of the 1st and 2nd place kings.  Click on this link to see all the pictures from today's Jolly Mon.

"Jolly Mon" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/22/12
 

Today was the Jolly Mon Jr. fishing day.  A few kings were weighed in.  Also the Captains' Meeting was held at the OIFC.  As usual a grand time was enjoyed by all.  Click here to see all the pictures.

I fished the Jolly Mon Jr. with Jeff, Chris Campbell and of course our Jr. Angler Camdyn.  The conditions were a little sporty with the winds out of the south west.  There were some kings and mahi caught today.  I saw photographic evidence of several nice kings caught and released Thursday.  I had to swear under oath I would not share the info.  And, I don't have the pix.

Captain Brant has expanded to Jolly Mon to include a prize for mahi and cobia.  This was announced at the Captains' Meeting.

"Giant Mahi" | Real-Time Update | 06/22/12
 

OIFC Gulf Stream class alumni Capt Jim Almond aboard his Southport, Never Sa tisfied, captured a massive Mahi today. Angler Bart Norwood caught a 46lb Ma hi in 500' offshore of the Blackjack. The fish ate a green machine at 11:30. The team boater 4 other nice Mahi in the area to add to their prize 46lber. That's the largest Mahi to come to the OIFC docks in a couple years. Way to go guys!

"Jolly Mon ocean report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/21/12
 

On the water yesterday; here's what I saw. Water from 0-50 feet absolutely beautiful "king green"; crystal clear. Pogies scattered up and down beach[in front of Holden Beach bridge yesterday], glass minnows and spanish. From 50 feet to 90 feet, color not as good, a lot of scattered weed, but did see schools of tinker mackeral in 75 feet. Tinkers are absolute #1 King candy and we don't usually see them till November. From 90 feet and beyond, weed not a problem and water color crystal clear.

Fishing action: There were Kings caught at the Shark Hole. Also heard reports of Yaupon and 90/90. What we suggested early in the week, with the weather stabalizing, the kings are finally begin moving in to where they are supposed to be. It seems every day reports are getting better as more and more fish are being caught. 2 more days to go before tourney so hopefully it will continue to improve.

"Flounder bite is on today" | Get Busy | 06/21/12
 

I took Greg and his three nephews David, Alex and Nathen out this morning for a little flonder fishing. They bit as soon as I put a line in the water. Greg from Alaska and the boys from Geensboro N.C. We managed 9 flounder and a few reds. I will never get tired of watching a kids face light up when a redfish nails a bait. Priceless!!

"Bottom Fishing /Spearing" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/20/12
 

Below are a couple of nice bottom fish taken today.  The grouper is Nesbit Noble's along with his son.  The hog snapper was taken by Jeff Martini and will surely be on the menu at The Midtown Bistro in North Myrtle Beach.  Also pictured below with the boat load of fish are Alex Mercer and Austin who, along with their dad Brian fished with Nesbit Nobel.

This crew was 40 miles out.  They limited on big bass, scamp, gag, cobia, mahi and trigger fish.  They also had their share of big sharks and jacks.

Thanks for the pics and info.

"Jaws" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/20/12
 

The news has been packed with reports about the recent shark bites at Myrtle Beach this week.  Never fear, Capt. Quint, aka Captain Chris Dew is doing his part to make the waters safe.  Captain Dew told me he had caught and released a half dozen or so sharks like the one in this picture this week.

Yes, I said released, after a stern warning!

"Two Cute Fishergirls!" | Get Busy | 06/20/12
 

Our good friend Stephen Hunter dropped by the OIFC and we were happy to give him the latest info on the Spanish. Stephen said we made his two girls extremely happy (Rylee 6 and Addison 4). They caught most of the spanish near the OIB pier and some near Shallotte Sea buoy. The hot lure was a  O/O green spoon.  The young ladies also managed to catch a small king near the buoy as well. Stephen said they had a good week with the Spanish, catching 15-20 a day.  They also caught some Bonita as well.

Comments like this from Stephen optimizes our mission statement.  "Once again I can’t express how much you guys at the Fishing center do to make fishing fun for the kids and their families and that’s what it’s all about. Hope to see you soon". Our pleasure Stephen!  That puts a smile on our face!

"Boys are back in town" | Get Busy | 06/20/12
 

Well when Allen and Steve roll into town you can be sure something going to be caught. A few live shrimp and a little time and watch it come together. We had some fish over the slot 27+ and a few under size -17. Throw in a couple of trout on the float. Fun times.

Jolly Mon - Fishing Report                                                                         Capt. Brant McMullan











OK- here is the deal.  The King Mackerel fishing has been very slow.  Last week there were a few glimmers of hope as some nice Kings were caught in the 90-100 foot depth range, but the rough seas last weekend kept anyone from following up to see if the fish were still there.  I was out yesterday  and did some "scouting" to see what the ocean looked like.  The water inside of 50 feet and outside of 90 feet looked very good.  The 50-90 depth honestly looked terrible.  The water was very "milky" green and there was scattered weed everywhere.  This 50-90 foot range is typically where the tournament is fished (Jungle, Shark Hole, 90/90....), but unless things change this week, I don't see it.  Inshore of 50 feet the water is clear green, there are Glass minnows with Spanish and Blues everywhere and the Pogys have been plentiful.  It honestly looks like the bite should happen at Yaupon; hopefully the fish will get the memo.  Offshore in 100+ feet, the water is blue and clear.  Kings are scattered in this range and feeding on Snappers and other bottom fish.  The big issue in this range is all the "auxillary" species:  Jacks, Mahi, Cobia...... they are out there and they are biting, particularly the Jacks.  It can be almost impossible to fish live bait with Jacks around.  As such, think on using more dead bait if fishing offshore.  Cigar Minnows and Ribbonfish will often be left alone by Jacks but enticing to Kings.  It is a good offshore strategy.  And that's all I have on the state of the King Mackerel fishing.  It isn't like it "used to be", but what is?  Mother Nature may offer us a break this weekend and as such, conditions may be suitable to try out spots you would not normally fish for this tournament.  Broaden your horizons and think outside the box.  Good luck- Capt. Brant.

*** UPDATE***  Things are continuing to evolve.  Yesterday reports were dirty water due South of Ocean Isle but much clearer up towards the Horseshoe.  Mahi and Sailfish there, but no King reports (YET).  Christinas Ledge and 65' hole area water cleared up and lots of BIG Spanish Mackerel eating live baits.  Weed was bad, so tough to fish.  These are encouraging reports.  There is a rumor of Kings at Yaupon reef, but I have not confirmed it, so might just be wishful thinking.  It should be true; conditions are perfect!
