"Singing in the Rain" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/12/12
 

Mike Turner and Carson from Kentucky joined me for a half day backwater adventure today. We started off pretty dry...we found a few flounder with one keeper...changed gears to redfish and caught a nice slot fish, then a small trout to complete our inshore slam. Then the rain started coming down hard, so we made a quick run for shelter. Carson, 11 years-old was not done just yet. We got a little break in the rain, so we headed back out. Carson landed a nice black drum to add a 4 species to the box making it an inshore grand slam! Awesome job!

Jim and Steven was eager to get out on the water despite the rain. We floated live shrimp in several places with only a pinfish to show for our efforts. We made a run between rain showers to another location. We caught a nice redfish with in the first 5 minutes of being there. Then we started catching toadfish, pinfish, croakers, grunts and black sea bass. It was raining so hard at times that having gills and scales would have come in handy. We stuck with it, but could only muster up that one redfish! It was still enjoyable getting to know each other and sharing a peaceful day on the water. As the ole saying goes, a bad day fishing, still beats a great day at work! Thank you guys for fishing with us! See ya on the water!

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

The 2012 Jolly Mon King Classic is going to be rescheduled for June 22-24.  The original dates of June 15-17 are being postponed due to a combination of a very poor NOAA weather forecast and the current status of the King Mackerel fishery.  This is the first time in the event’s 18 year history that dates will be postponed.  However, Mother Nature reigns supreme, and we must all answer to her wishes.

 The King Mackerel fishing showed marked improvement this past week as it went from non-existent to fairly good.  The Kings were moving into the 80’ depth range and several fish in excess of 30 pounds had been caught over the weekend.  Hotspots included the Horseshoe, AR 465 and 32 mile rocks.  However, this weekend NOAA weather is calling for a low pressure system to form offshore of the Carolinas resulting in a strong northeasterly wind, which in turn will make the offshore waters very rough.  In the past we would have had the Jolly Mon as scheduled with this forecast as a north wind blows off the land and thus seas are relatively calm close to shore.  However, the Kings have not been found inshore for the past several weeks despite much effort from local fishermen.  And thus, with the impending offshore weather conditions and the lack of Kings near shore, the Jolly Mon tournament committee saw the conditions as “worse case” and thus felt it appropriate to reschedule the tournament until the following weekend:  June 22-24.  Hopefully the fish will continue their move inshore and weather will improve to host the event on this new scheduled date.  

 ** If you have pre-entered and cannot make the reschedule date, please email info@oifc.comto request your entry return. 

**  Registration will remain open thru Friday, June 22

In other fishing news, it actually was a very good week of fishing.  The weather stabilized and thus allowed the water to clear.  The Spanish Mackerel bite was red hot over the weekend along the Brunswick Beacheas.  In addition, the Cobia fishing in the 50-80 foot depth range has also been very good with most fish in the 30 pound class, but some upwards of 80 pounds have been reported.  All indications are that the fish are out there and they want to show up and bite, but they just need some help from Mother Nature.  

Stay tuned for further reports or go to www.OIFC.com for daily updates.

"I Remembered Your Name" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/12/12
 

The title is a not so inside joke.  I've had brain surgery which has messed with my memory.  So if I have a bewildered look on my face when you come to the store that's why.  Please re-introduce yourself.  Enough about me.

The picture below was sent  by Jay Murphy who Went offshore of 100-400 with George "Pirate" Macon and Kendrick "Membership" Mattox (Charlotte guys) and caught this White Marlin Sunday.  They had a double hookup on whites and a 30# bull Mahi at the same time, losing  one white in the battle.  The White was released healthy. Jay said not to pay attention to the apparent power-line in the background!

 He also knows of a local angler who caught a nice swordfish in our waters
Saturday.......but I will leave that story for him to tell! 

Thanks for the report and be sure to introduce yourself the next time I see you.

This report comes from Mr. Brian Buchanan from High Point,NC. "Saturday the 9th we were trolling for Spanish outside of Lockwoods Folly Inlet. The kids caught all of the fish with a little assistance from their parents. They were fishing with 00 Clark Spoons and #1 planers. Branson Buchanan, Madison Akes and Jacob Akes were thrilled with their catch." Good Catch guys! Thanks for the report. KK

"Sailfish Action" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/10/12
 

Timothy Gray fished the Tower searching for kings.  Instead, he hooked up with this sailfish in the pictures.

Speaking of kings, get prepared for the Jolly Mon.  No one is fishing it to lose.

Thanks for the pics and info Timothy!

The bite has been steady this week. There was a couple of days of rain that dampened the spirits but they still bit. I don't mind saying I'm watching the race and chilling this Sunday afternoon.

"Inshore Slam X2" | Get Busy | 06/10/12
 

What a fun morning on the ICW. Between the flounder tour and weekend boaters made Saturday a washing machine in the  ICW. 24 hours later and what a difference. We pulled up to the first spot and it only took a few minutes and we were hooked up. 26 inch redfish. The next bite was a real nice 20 inch flounder ,2 more reds and a speckle trout.  The tide rising made it's way up to the grass and We made the move up the shallotte River and boated 7 more flounder and another trout.

"Inshore Weekend Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/09/12
 

The fishing has been just that lately, fishing! We have fished hard and persistence has fortunely paid off by the end of our trips. There is a lot of competition out there right now....Thousands of  small mullet, pogies, croakers, pinfish, and baby spots are thick, finding which bait the fish are wanting has been the challenge. Early last week nothing but live shrimp would work, then they switched to pogies...today mullet caught the flounder and shrimp caught the reds. I would recommend having a little bit of everything if possible. Pictures below...

George, Ben, Will, and Brian pose with a nice catch of redfish.

Annabelle 11 years old poses with a nice 26"+ redfish she landed and released like a true sportsman.

Russell, Mike, and Jim pose with a nice catch of flounder and redfish from their trip this morning.

Thank you guys so much for fishing with me! I love it! See ya on the water!

"Team OIFC Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/08/12
 

Team OIFC member Brian Aycock submitted this report from the Gulf of Mexico:

Well, fishing was not very good. First bite yesterday was a big blue marlin at 8:10 pm. Pulled the hooks. Released one white marlin today When we decided to work back toward Venice we were 140 miles off shore. After battling thunderstorms since 2 am last night and all day today, I think we are throwing in the towel

"Two Sons" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/08/12
 

As always I put a lot of pressure on myself to get the fish to bite and yesterday was no exception. George(Grandpa) brought his son Brian(Dad) who brought his two younger sons Will and Ben on a half day backwater adventure with us. Having two sons of my own I understand how badly Father's want to experience thier boys catching fish. We worked very hard to find the fish trying several techniques and switching live bait choices. The 4 inch live pogies were getting the bite! We had several opportunities and landed quite a few! Pure joy to see that kind of excitment on the boat! Yesterday was a prime example of why I love my job! Thank you guys for going fishing with us! See ya on the water!
