"Sunset Beach Boat Ramp" | Get Busy | 05/10/12
 

 
It looks like the new Sunset Beach boat ramp is nearly completion. This overhead photo was taken from the top of the island's bridge a couple of weeks ago, and shows the boat ramp and the fishing pier that is part of the project.

Completion for the public facility is targeted by early summer. The pier is completed; the ramp is almost done; leaving just the parking lot to finish. If weather coo...perates, we should be able to watch boats launching into the ICW by early June!

This will be a free facility available to the public.

"Last Chance...." | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/10/12
 

Well, Fish Weather.com is showing better than expected conditions for Saturday.  There is a beautiful piece of water that has moved in over the break and I expect great fishing.  We have 3 folks committed to going offshore on Saturday's makeup charter.  We need at least one more person to sign up to make it happen.  If there are a couple of you that want to go, that is fine.  It just means the price goes down.  Cost per person with 4 is $400 each.  Dont miss out on an opportunity for some great fishing.  Call 910-575-3474 to get the last spot.

"On a Mission" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/09/12
 

Yesterday we had some strong bites that we just could not control. I decided to change up some of my terminal gear and prepare for toothy critters. I invited Ben and Derrick along for the show. We started off tossing artificials just to break the ice. Derrick drilled a little trout to start off the day. I got our first keeper flounder to the boat with a few more cast. Derrick drills what looks like a little Jack Carvelle. I decided it was time to look for those monster fish. It seemed like a very long wait and I was beginning to wonder if they were going to show. The fish hit like a frieght train! I could feel my reel heating up as the line screamed out for mercy. Ben and Derrick cleared the lines. Ben pulls the anchor. We were in hot pursuit now. After a good long battle the monster bluefish hit the net. A quick picture and quick release to fight another day. We had two more lighting fast runs, but both fish hit fluorocarbon leaders cutting the line during their initail runs. Exciting to say the least though. We finished the day landing several flounder picking up a couple more keepers. It is nice to see a game plan come together. See ya on the water!

"Gulf Stream Make Up Charter Saturday" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/09/12
 

There has been some interest in us putting together a make-up charter for this Saturday to go to the Gulf Stream.  Weather looks nice and this Northeast wind over the last few days has pushed a beautiful warm water eddy onto the break.  That should make for some really good fishing.  I have 3 spots left available for this trip.  Give me a call at 910-575-3474 to reserve your spot.  Cost is $400 per person.

"Fishing from another Zip Code" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/09/12
 

Amy and I are down in St. Thomas with the Campbell's, enjoying a few days of R&R before we get into the "season".  Of course, we had to go fishing.

Pretty cool – they load well with pilchards, head to break and troll until they see birds and topwater action – pull into area of activity and throw scoops of live baits out and then free line single baits on small circles on 30’s, one on downrigger- and drift – Once Tuna get on bait and start busting you can watch as they work their way to boat and then its on – landed 7 whole YF 45-60 pounds, 3-4 Blackfin – lost 2 YF to sharks and missed probably 3-4 more – 6 hour trip.  20 mile run. 

Pictured are Robin and Chris Campbell with one of their Yellowfin Tuna; wouldn't  it be nice to have that fishery! 

There is also a story that involves the marina Tarpon (schooling and ravenous by the dozens) and a certain $1000, Orvis, 11 weight fly rod.  You can't buy that kind of entertainment.  Let's just say that Orvis will soon be making another sale and there's a herd of Tarpon laughing like Hyennaes.

"For Spanish Fishing Enthusiasts" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/08/12
 

There are a lot of us who enjoy the thrill of Spanish Mackerel fishing.  They are good eating, make great bait for king fishing and are near shore for those who don't have a boat big enough to feel comfortable going way off shore.

Today, the OIFC's own Terry and his friend from Lake Norman Captain J.T. trolled for Spanish using  #1 and #2 planers with gold, then silver-pink 00 Clarke Spoons and caught the Spanish you see in the picture.  They were fishing just off Tubbs Inlet in 24 feet of water.

Thanks for the pic and report Terry.

"Yellow Fin Tuna!!!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/08/12
 

Captain Brant and Captain Amy joined Robin and Chris Campbell for a yellow fin tuna trip.  They proved that if you were willing  to travel far enough you could hit the jackpot!

In this case they traveled to St. Thomas, The Virgin Islands...That was really uncalled for on my part wasn't it?

Don't forget to check the OIFC as well as Chris Campbell's pages out on FaceBook.

"Winner Winner Flounder Dinner" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/08/12
 

That is exactly what you get when you fish with the inshore guides from the Ocean Isle Fishing Center. Capt. Jeff and myself both put our guys on the flounder today. Jeff, Chuck, Thomas, and Steve all enjoyed a fine meal, funny jokes, and exciting action on the water today.  Inlet View Bar and Grill is an awesome place. The atmosphere, service, and the food is awesome! Oh! I snuck in a few more minutes of fishing after dropping off my charter. I just couldn't let it go. We had 4 opportunities at landing trophy fish again today, but ended up on the short end of the line each time. I landed 3 more short flounder and finally managed to pull one of those nice reds out of hiding! See ya on the water!

"Black fin and More" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/08/12
 

Trask Cunningham sent these pictures of the weekend fishing to the Georgetown Hole he took aboard Corey Bellamy's sweet looking Fountain the "Choice of Two".  Also along were Richard Boles (Toes Up) and Briggs Badurski.  If that is Briggs' real last name, it is too cool.

Trask said the black fin bite was hot.  I've pulled tuna feathers before, but I've never plucked them from a live bird. Trask, you better watch out, some bird lovers might be hot on you trail.

"Productive But Bumpy" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/07/12
 

Jim Bowen said the Stick Slinger cleared the LR jetties around 0400 this weekend and headed out searching for warm water more than he was trying to locate structure. The Stick Slinger had to dodge storms on the way, and the seas were a little worse than forecast. When they got to 650' deep water they came across a weed line and jumped on it. The crew headed East on a weed line for 10 miles boating 16 nice Mahi. It took about 3 hours to get back in. The action was great but the trip out and back was a little sporty. All in all an awesome day aboard the Stick Slinger.

Thanks for sharing your bumpy trip Jim!

Captain Chris Dawson had the thrill of taking 9 year old Tyler Lambiasi on his 1st saltwater fishing trip.  Along with Tyler were Will Patterson, Jonn Smith and Warren Thompson.  Tyler is pictured below with a spanish mackerel he caught on the 4 hr. charter.

Also on the dock was Michael Goodwin, Mitchell Hough and Brian Locklear with the 12.7 lb and 17.6 lb grouper they caught southwest of the tower.
