"Back to OIB" | Get Busy | 05/18/12
 

Well everyone knows how hard the Captains at the fishing center try to get the fishermen that fish with us on fish. So when the fish or weather don't come together and we can't make it happen we take it to heart. I took the week off to travel down to Floridas west coast to tarpon fish. Well 3 days of fishing in pouring rain and breezey conditions made for tough conditions for Capt. Josh and Capt. Matt. Hard as we tried it just did'nt happen. Floridas clear water is a double edged sword. I hate when you can see the fish but can't make them  bite.So 15 hours on the water and not a single bite but to worry I will be back.

"Jolly Mon Reef feeding station update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/16/12
 

The good news is Rube and Brant restocked the Jolly Mon Reef[AR460] feeding station today with approx 300lbs of dolphin/wahoo carcasas. The bad news is it was so full it sunk. Damn, back to the drawing board. Fortunately a thunderstorm came up preventing a rescue attempt, so will make another shot tomorrow. We are committed to this project, but as we said from the beginning, this is experimentation, so will keep working until we come up with a workable system.

"Bananas? Myth Busted!" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/15/12
 

Steve, Rick, and Daniel joined us for a half day backwater fishing trip this morning. We had some serious rain yesterday along with wind and lightning. Those kind of conditions can make the next day of fishing tough. Then, as I am helping my clients load their stuff on the boat. I ask if they had anything in their bag that they didn't want to get wet like cell phones, camera, etc...I got a really bad answer...nah, just some bananas and rain gear...WHAT! BANANAS! Wow! Could the conditions stack up against a Captain anymore than that. No problem! I will just blame it on the rain and bananas. Well, somehow we overcame the conditions and  banana myth landing several nice fish today. I can't even imagine what we could have done without the bananas. Thanks for fishing with us guys! Still yet, looking at Steve's flounder he may consider leaving the bananas at home next time. LOL! See ya on the water

"Pogy netting ban" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/15/12
 

To: Dr. Louis Daniel[Louis.Daniel@ncdenr.gov]

Please pass on to the MFC members my thanks and congrats on passing the menhaden purse seining ban for all of the NC waters. Whether this action is a result of concern about wiping out the food source for the early winter Bluefin Tuna migration, or concern for pressure to reduce the netting in the Chesepeake Bay thus forcing the netting operations in to our NC waters, the result of this action by the MFC is excellent. Just what is needed to enhance and protect our fisheries. Good work!

"Pogy News Flash!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/15/12
 

Just got off the tele with Jerry Dilsavor, who keeps his nose close to the ground on fishery issues. Amazingly, this past Friday, the Marine Fisheries Commission voted 5-4 to close all purse seining in NC waters. This means the rest of the state will follow the lead of our Brunswick County waters, and no menhaden commercial netting will be allowed anywhere in NC waters. This is a big issue for our fisheries as we all understand the connection between predador and prey, and the important role menhaden serve as a food source for almost everything that swims. Last year you may recall we "communicated" with Dr. Daniel[Director of MF] regarding the devestating effect to the Bluefin Tuna fishery that was occurring as a result of the massive pogy netting that was occurring between Ocracoke and Cape Lookout. This netting was occuring in mid November, timed just prior to the arrival of the migration of Bluefin Tuna into NC waters. When the Bluefin arrived to our NC waters, and the pogys had been wiped out by the commercial netting, their food source was gone, and thus they left our waters to go somewhere they could find the amount of food needed to feed a 500lb eating machine. Whether the collaspe of our early winter Bluefin season from Cape Lookout south is a direct result of this we don't know, but I feel 100% confident this action by the Marine Fisheries Commission can only be of great help to the Bluefin fishery as well as all our fisheries. Another factor that may have weighed into this decision by MF is the growing pressure being applied to reduce the amount of menhaden being netted from the Chesepeake Bay as a result of concerns on the impact of the loss of food source for the stripped bass fishery in the Bay. Perhaps the MFC finaly realized the warning that we and others have sounded for years, that a reduction in the Chesepeake Bay allocation would push the netting operations into NC ,as we are the only state left where they can net on the east coast. Whatever, the reason for their decision, if you get a chance, please send a message of "thank you" to the MFC guys. Many of us have been very critical of many of their decisions in the past. They got this one right and I save BRAVO! Good work MFC!

"Storm" | Get Busy | 05/14/12
 

We just had one heck of a storm pass over Brunswick County.  I know of one house that was hit by lightening.  But all in all everyone made it through fine.

Below is a picture of Brandon and Syd Sauls and one of many flounder they caught.  If you study the background you will get an idea of where the picture was taken.  Enjoy life and create some everlasting memories.  Take a child fishing.

By the way, the pic was obviously NOT taken during the storm.

"Pearly Whites" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/13/12
 

Dr. Jeff Wallen and Dr. John Pauy show off their pearly whites as they pose with their catch today. Getting information from these two guys was like pulling teeth. I continued to drill the two dentist and managed to get a little information. Dr. Wallen was using pogies caught in front of Ocean Isle Marina and mullet caught in a near by creek at low tide this morning. The duo also had a few live shrimp, but the weather kept them away from the jetties. Dr. Wallen managed to tighten up the Rodeo standings by weighing in a 5.5lb flounder. Dr. Wallen also had a nice 26" 6.2lb redfish. The redfish category is going to be tight. The flounder and trout division is still wide open. If you are not in it, you need to be! See ya on the water!

"Running Solo" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/13/12
 

David Rucker headed off the beach early yesteday morning in hot pursuit of a King bite. Radio chatter indicated pogies were holding just off Holden beach near the pier. Mr. Rucker was able to net a few and headed toward Yaupon. It wasn't too long before he was hooked up with a King mackerel. Going solo is tough work, handling the boat, angling the fish, and gaffing all by oneself is a challenge. Mr. Rucker made a great gaff shot and brought back a nice King for a picture here at the OIFC. Purdy work right there! Look out! Team Rucker could be a contender in this year's Jolly Mon tournament. See ya on the water!

"Call The EPA" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/12/12
 

I expect Rube was considering calling the EPA and complaining about an Oil Slick. After all it was "The Oil Slick" Cape Horn that knocked Rube and crew out of 1st with a 41.15 lb wahoo.  For good measure the guys weighed in a 20.45 lb mahi.

The "Oil Slick" crew was made up of The Legend..Captain Jamie Milliken, Kyle White, Captain Joe Seegers and Robbie White.
