"Last Few Backwater Trips..." | Tiberias - 22' | 07/28/12
 

Thanks to all of those that have fished with me this week. It has been an awesome redfish bite, with a few black drum and flounder in the mix. Live pogies have been easy to catch in the canals and have been getting hammered by the red drum and flounder. Live shrimp are getting eaten by both red drum and black drum. Catching plenty of shrimp to feed to the pinfish has gotten a little tough lately. The mullet minnows are steadily growing and plenty of good size ones are hanging in the cement canals. Deeper holes along the ICW have been producing most of the bites. The Little River Jetties has also been a hot spot when weather cooperates. Good luck out there and enjoy the pictures. Lots of fish released this week, so there is still plenty left out there. See ya on the water!

"Brant medical update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/28/12
 

Yesterday saw Brant making alot of progress. He had a visit from his children Caroline and Brayden which was great for him. Amy is being Capt Amy and has the whole thing under complete control; from the IV to the nurses and docs, to the bed pan. She can and does, do it all. Today at noon he goes in for another round of extensive surgery, this time to attack his left arm,elbow,wrist which is in a similar condion as his leg/hip/pelvis was prior to that surgery. Also will do work on more breaks in toes/heel/ect. The Docs continue to be optomistic and have commented that they have never seen a patient with his degree of injury come back from where he was with such vengence. Brant is focused, committed and his iron will and sheer determination are already in high gear.

On another front, let me take this public opportunity to thank and commend the entire staff at OIFC for the incredible job they are all doing taking control of and keeping the OIFC ship sailing on. I've dropped by a couple times in last days, and although the jovial happy OIFC faces are not as prevailent, what you see if a focused committed look of absolute assumption of the job and committment to make Brant proud of them. If you are at OIFC, please give them a pat on the back. Thanks to everyone out there for your continuation of the power of support. Rube

"Brant report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/27/12
 

On behalf of Brant and our entire family we thank you all for the incredible outpouring of concern and support expressed to us during this time of tradegy. Brant has survived a deadly accident, falling approx 50 feet off a billboard to the concrete driveway below. He has a multitude of serious injuries but everything internal is good. He endured a 8+ hour surgery Wednesday and following the surgery the Doctor told us the 1st key point would be if he could wiggle his toes the next morning. HE DID! And thus the recovery train has left the station. He has a long road in front of him, but those of you who know Brant, know him to be the toughest of the tough, both mentally and physically. We will keep everyone informed of his progress on our web site. I have let him know of the incredible outpouring of concern and support and he and we are humbled and so appreciative. This collective power gives us all strength...it works, and we thank you so much. Rube McMullan

"From the First to the Last" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/26/12
 

Doug Sr., Doug Jr., and Connor fished with me this morning. We caught fish on the first cast and the last cast. Doug Jr. caught a nice flounder on his first cast and Doug Sr. landed a nice 22"  red on his first cast. Before Connor could catch a fish Doug Jr. pulled out his so called lucky hat. The bite shut down! I moved to several locations before I threatened to throw the so called lucky hat into the water. LOL! Doug Jr. removed the hat and Connor landed a nice 22" fish. We worked on a few black drum and worked on the smaller reds for a while. I decided to check out an old hole that hasn't produced in a while, but you never know. The reds were there...good ones too! Doug Jr. had even pulled out that so called lucky hat. We worked on a school of reds between 24 and 27 inches landing close to a dozen. We ended the day with Connor landing a nice 26 incher to finish the day! Thank you guys for fishing with me! See ya on the water!

Yesterday Mr. Beane and his son Brett joined me in the morning. Brett landed an inshore grand slam and I am sure is still doing some trash talking. It is never fun getting beat, but being a Dad myself...there is nothing like seeing your son have a great time catching fish! I love it! Thank you guys! See ya on the water!

Yesterday afternoon the Massey group joined me and found some slab flounder! Alex, 14 years-old, landed a 4.2 flounder! Mr. Massey snagged another one that was just over 3 pounds and Jacob followed that up with a respectable 16 inch fish. Some great eating right there! Thanks for fishing we me guys! See ya on the water!

"Morning Trip" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/24/12
 

This morning's trip...Drew, Allister, and Jason joined me for a few hours in the backwater. We caught some short reds, big stingrays, black drum, flounder, and a beautiful 26+ inch red drum. As always I left the water wanting more, but considering the conditions not a bad morning. Of course, anyday on the water beats being stuck behind a desk! Thank you guys for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

"Shifting Gears" | Get Busy | 07/23/12
 

This is 2/3 if the slam that Jeff Wallen caught weekend before last.  Jeff caught 25-30 trout and 3 over the slot reds.  The flounder was pushing 21' and 3lbs.  The largest trout was 2.5lbs. with several in the 2-2.5 range.  He only kept this trout because it died.  All the big ones are full of eggs this time of year.

"Here today gone tomorrow" | Get Busy | 07/23/12
 

Looking for fish seems to be the challenge of every day. Where you caught them today does'nt mean they will be there tomorrow. The water has been hotter than last reported mid 80's to low 90's. There has been a steady bite at the jetties but 20 to 30 kt s.w winds make that almost impossible to fish. With the high winds also means very dirty water. We did witness the Manatee that was cruising the ICW. Only the third time I've seen 1 of those.

Another fisherman's words...

Today Legendary Fisherman, Surfer and Contractor Jeff Lee passed away. He was a close family friend my entire life. He was my first sponsor (he owned a shop) his belief in me at an early age helped to pave the path for my competive sucess and career in the surf industry. Jeff was a seasoned angler and tournament champion. When I began my angling career Jeff always shared great advice and skill...s he learned in his lifetime of fishing. Those that know Jeff knew he lived life to the fullest. I always enjoyed hearing stories from him or his surfing and angling buddies of there legendary escapades.
So to my dear friend Jeff, Thank you for all that you have done for me in my lifetime. I hope you are proud of the man I have become.
Captain Cane Faircloth

"Flounder and 'maters" | Get Busy | 07/22/12
 

Our good buddy Tommy Helms and his partner Trent hit the flounder circuit again, landing some nice flat fish.  The pic with the 2 flounder came from the 465 using pin fish.  He didn't say where the 4.88 lb'r came from.  Tommy also sent pictures of his tomatoes so I figure he's gonna have flounder and fresh tomatoes, or the bite was slow so he just gonna have 'mater samiches.

"Inshore Reports" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/21/12
 

The heavy wind has the offshore fleet passing trips to the inshore boats making things very busy for both Capt. Jeff and myself. Thus, the reason for such an absence in our reporting. Fishing has been tough the last few days, but both Jeff and I have been up to the challenge. We have managed to pull out some decent fish on most of our trips. I can't say we have been getting numbers, but we have managed to stretch the lines with some over the slot reds, plenty of good eating size black drum and maybe even sneak in a keeper flounder. We greatly appreciate the business and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our fishermen and fisherwomen. Thank you all for fishing with us! Check out our facebook page for more pictures from this past weeks action! See ya on the water!

"Fishing Fraternity Loses Past Champ- Jeff Lee " | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/20/12
 

This afternoon Jeff Lee passed away from heart failure.  Jeff hailed from Holden Beach, NC and was a building contractor by trade but fishermen by passion.  I knew Jeff from way back and remember in my very early years of tournament fishing striving to win like he did -- fishing back then on the Tooth &  Nail.  It must have been back in the mid to late 90's when he was the hottest fishermen in the Carolinas, and I believe it was because he was fishing the now famed 30/30 area when few others were.  In recent years he was a member of the King Hunter fishing team, winning the 2009 Rumble in the Jungle tournament and placing high in many others.  Jeff will be missed and is further evidence that you just don't know how many days you have left, so live them all to the fullest. 
Tight Lines and screaming reels for Jeff Lee.
