"Jolly Mon report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/19/12
 

Finally the weather has stabalized allowing the sea condtions to improve from weeks of unstable weather. It's been flat this week, and the forecast is a continuation of the same, allowing conditions to continue to improve. Here's whats happening on the ocean.

The beach water has cleared and is a beautiful "King green". The beach water is full of blues/spanish/glass minnows, and pogies are scattered up and down the beach. As you move offshore, the water in the 60-80 foot depth has lots of scattered weeds, and is dirty. Apparently a current rip has set up in this depth and has been there for the last couple days. Beyond 80 feet, the water clears up and the weed is less of a issue.

So what does all this mean? 1st, with the weather stabalizing, the hope is the Kings get back to doing what they are supposed to be doing this time of year and return to where they are supposed to be. As of right now, the best looking water on the ocean is on the beach, the best concentration of bait is on the beach, so what does that tell you? The only thing missing is for the Kings to read this and appear at the historical beach hot spots like Yaupon/Myrtle Beach Rocks/90-90. Or will the current rip stuck in the 60-80 foot range move on, and open up the gates for the Kings to return to their normal 65 foot water hot spots like the Jungle/Shark Hole/Horseshoe. As always, it a crap shoot, but you can bet someone will catch the winner and take home a bunch of money. Stay tuned as we will report what we see/find this week. We're on the water tomorrow so should have a good report tomorrow. Come join us at the Jolly Mon.

"Near/in shore grand slam?" | Get Busy | 06/18/12
 

Take a guy from  Iowa and a couple of Kansas boys and lets go fishing. Coles first salt water fish was a 5.1 lb citation flounder,  I know talk about a lucky drop. The first couple of hours the bite was steady then the east wind kicked in. we bounced from wreck to wreck. Nothing!! The tide was low and I made the move back to the ICW and went to work on some nice redfish to complete the slam.

"Size Doesn't Matter" | Get Busy | 06/18/12
 

Size doesn't matter when you catch your first salt water fish like young Tyler Clemmons.  Tyler was fishing with his dad Timmy (a part of Team OIFC/Do Work), Captain Jeff Beck and Jr. Angler Camdyn Beck.  The crew caught drum around the Sunset Beach Bridge.  They ended the day playing in Tubbs Inlet.  That makes for a fun kid's day.

"Over the Slot" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/18/12
 

The Frambes group joined me for a half day backwater adventure this afternoon. We spent the first few minutes of the trip catching some nice live shrimp. We just about had enough for a meal for ourselves, but the plan was to turn them into something bigger. We worked the Sunset area...we watched Capt. Jeff's group pull in a nice black drum, but we couldn't get a bite. We made a move into Tubbs and still could not get a bite. We headed back towards Ocean Isle hitting docks and little grass flat edges. One particular grass edge finally started producing some bites...Croaker, pinfish, and ocean perch...then Ted's cork takes off like a torpedo...Oh yeah! That's what we are looking for...Ted does an awesome job angling as we were in shallow water and in a gauntlet of oyster shells! Our best fish of the day was over the slot at 27 3/4 inches. We had two more reds that were short of the slot. Looking at the positive...we didn't kill another redfish today, so more to catch next time! See ya on the water!

"AR Fishing for Flounder" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/17/12
 

The black sea bass are still pretty thick out there and getting live bait past them is difficult. I did not feel like feeding all of my minnows to the bass, so I tried a few tricks. The nice flounder and bigger sea bass jumped all over it! Tip a 1oz or 2oz bucktail jig with a 5 or 6 inch jerk shad and game on! A three or four inch shrimp on the bucktail was also working great. Stop by and check it out. See ya on the water!

"Inshore Highlights" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/16/12
 

Eric and Alex fished with me yesterday, landing sheepshead, red drum, and flounder. Scott joined me this morning for a half day backwater adventure. We hit the Shallotte ledge this morning before the wind got to bad. We found some keeper black sea bass and some nice flounder. The wind switched almost directly out of the East and forced us to make a long run into Little River Jetties. It was an adventure that was well worth its bounty. Later this afternoon Mark, Jeremy, John, and Ron joined me for a half day. The ocean was way too rough to try the ledge again, so we stayed inshore. The bite was a little slow as the water was a bit stirred up from the wind. We managed to boat a couple flounder and a nice red drum. Thank you guys for coming out and fishing with me! See ya on the water!

"Last Couple days Inshore" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/14/12
 

Fished with Justin and Jared Wednesday morning and put the hurt on some elbows. We found several redfish in the upper slot and a few over the slot. Our biggest was just over 30 inches. We also had a keeper flounder and a stingray in the mix. Today I fished with Jim, Ben and Hot Shot(Grandpa) in the morning. The redfish action was right on spot. We landed several reds, most were in the 21 inch range, but we did manage to find a 28 inch brute to top off the day. Stephen and Mike joined me for an afternoon trip. The conditions were tough to say the least. We floated live shrimp down miles of grass edges without a sniff from a redfish. We had the usual pinfish, puffer fish, toadfish, and even a few black sea bass. I had to change gears, because the redfish were just not going to do their thing. We went to flounder fishing and some how found two hunger keepers. Thatta eat! Thanks for fishing with us everybody! See ya on the water!

"Wind from the east the fish bite the least." | Get Busy | 06/14/12
 

Chisel that in stone. The fish have bite despite the changing winds and rain storms this week. It looks like it may be a little breezy this weekend.. That is the beauty of inshore fishing,finding somewhere to hide out of the wind. This young man showed dad and older brother how to get it done.

"Reel Wet" | Get Busy | 06/13/12
 

Our good friend Tommy Helms can always be counted upon for fish stories with documentation.  These flat fish were caught just east of the buoy at the AR 485.  Tommy said "Bill didn't know how to run his GPS very well so they just decided to set up east of the buoy".  I'm not sure these fish came from blind luck..

"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.
