"Winners???" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/07/12
 

Well, I have finally found some time to sit down and do a report from our Gulf Stream trip on Thursday.  Capt. Chris "OC" Dew and I were aboard the Carolina Cat with a great group of folks that fish with us every year.  One of these guys is Brad Mulahy of Team Over Equipped, a bluewater tournament team out of Bald Head Island that I fish with regularly when not running charters for the OIFC.  The group was big enough this year to charter both boats and that's always fun because inevitably, there is always a mini tournament that takes place between boats.  This was no exception.  We left the dock expecting a slow bumpy ride offshore and were pleasantly suprised to find very nice conditions with a slight SW ground swell making it a nice ride out towards the Blackjack area.  We had gotten a report of some good king fishing with some decent Wahoo's inshore of the gulf stream about 12 miles so decided to start inshore and do some slow trolling with live bait and cigar minnows.  Fishing was pretty slow for us in there so after an hour or two, we made the call to push out towards the blackjack to do some good ol fashioned blue water trolling.  Water temp shot was showing a nice 3 degree break a couple of miles inshore of the Blackjack so when we reached that, we stopped and deployed baits.  First bait in the water gets pounded by a nice Wahoo which we promptly lost boatside. I'll take the blame for this one as I was experimenting with extra long leaders to try to draw more bites(which worked).  Anyway, we redeployed and promptly doubled up on Wahoo's.  Lost one, boated the other.  From that point on, it was Singles, doubles and triples all day long.  Lots of activity. Even had a nice Mahi on the line for a little while.   Around 3 oclock, the fan turned on out of the NE, just as forecasted and the seas got UGLY.... We picked up and started working our way to the hill at a mind numbing 15-18 knots..... Took close to 3 hours to get home.  As Brant and I discussed, the ride in really soured an otherwise outstanding day of fishing in the gulf stream.  We ended the day with a nice haul of Wahoo's, BIG blackfins and even a Skipjack Tuna... When the dust settled, Capt. Chris and I, along with Team Over Equipped aboard the Carolina Cat won this friendly competition.  The losers had to prepare a delicious fish dinner for the 25 or so people staying at the beach for Easter weekend.  The Gulf Stream is Firing off and now is the time to get down here and go fishing... Brad had his GO Pro on the boat and we got some great footage both above and below the water that I will upload as soon as I can get a copy.(hint hint Brad)

"Hook A Hoo Rodeo" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/07/12
 

Once again Jeff Martini (Midtown Bistro) Is having his Hook A Hoo fishing tournament.  Click on the link for details.  Why don't you book a charter with the OIFC anf fish it?  It's cheaper that running your own boat.

Wishing you great weather this year!!

"Tragic news out of Fl." | Get Busy | 04/06/12
 

If you've ever  woken on Saturday morning and flipped on ESPN you've watched Jose Wejebe Capt. Of the Spanish Fly and host of his own T.V. show. He  was killed today in Florida when his single engine plane crashed just after takeoff. Sad day for the fishing world bro.

"Cool Easter" | Get Busy | 04/06/12
 

No doubt, the day syarted out just plain rotten.  But it did get better by afternoon.  It was nice enough for Wally Trayah to get some back water fishing in. So buy yourself an OIFC sweatshirt and your child too, book one of our charters and get in on some of this cool front action.

Quick dockside report: both Oifc world cat and Carolina cat were in the stre am today. Haven't received full report, but believe they were around 100/400 Each boat had multiple wahoo (4 and 3). Also had several tunas and kings. One wahoo was 58+ and another 43+. one tuna was 31lbs. Good catches all around. Pretty day except it got snotty on the way in. Full report from the crew to come.

"Bottem of the ninth." | Get Busy | 04/04/12
 

After that 2:30 a.m. thunder/lightning storm completely shut down any kinda fish bite today. My party and I fished the river to find nothing. Made the mid morning move down to Tubbs,nothing. Moved to the bridge where the reds have been biting all week. A sure thing. NOTHING. The other 8  boats  and myself  pulled away I was wondering if anything was going to eat today. Patience is not my strong point. One more move and again a change of the tide. Is there any sweeter sound than a line pulled tight and drag pulling off a reel? The last hour and a half was unreel.

"In the Backwaters" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/04/12
 

The flounder are here...they have awakened and started to bite a little. Live minnows of any sort has a good chance at catching a few right now. Mud minnows are the easiest to get as every tackle shop sells them. Tiger minnows are in the surf zone and along the edges of sand bars near low tide. A few finger mullet that made it through the winter can be caught at dead low tide near shallow feeder creek mouths. I have caught a couple of keeper flounder this week on limetreuse ghost and talked to another fellow who had luck on nuclear chicken shrimp. Trout are scattered around, but most of them are on the small side. I would hope as the shrimp start to show, we will see more trout. The redfish seem to be all stuck in the Sunset Beach area right now. Last hour of outgoing tide has been putting on a show near the Sunset Bridge. If you want to get in on the action, you better get there early. Just look for the whole backwater fishing fleet. Bring you some crab! See ya on the water!

In the pictures below...Greg and son Benjiman pose with fresh fried flounder! Beside that Matthew Wilson, son Thomas and daughter Adrienne also pose with two nice flounder. Everyone has enjoyed some great fishing weather and taken home some great eating! Thank you guys for fishing with us!

"Lets go fishing" | Get Busy | 04/03/12
 

I had some Got-em-on Live bait club members come down and fish with me today. They did what they know best, catch flounder on live bait. Later on in the day John, Ross and Max went out to get back on some more reds and flounder.

"Kings and Wahoo move closer" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/03/12
 

I got a report today of a good bite of Kings with Wahoo mixed that were caught in 100-110 feet of water.  That is great news.  It means the fish are starting to move inshore.  The weather is looking terrible to offshore this weekend (of course), but it looks good Monday (of course), so stick around and let's go fishing.

"It's a short walk" | Get Busy | 04/02/12
 

It is a short walk from the outhouse to the penthouse. I'm not going to lie. For 3 hours and 10 minutes this morning the fishing was terrible and I could'nt do a thing about it but keep to my game plan. Talking to friends, other guides on the phone ,I was getting the same story from Little River to deep in the Shallotte River.The last 50 minutes where awesome.  The tide finally changed around 11;30 and the bite was on. What a finish to what started out not so good.

"Inshore GRAND SLAM!!!!" | Get Busy | 04/01/12
 

It  started out a little chilly on the water this morning. We fished holesin the Shallotte River around 8:15 and a balmy 56 degrees. John and Ross Porter are no strangers to the Get Busy Fishing team. Things heated up quick with some spotted sea trout and a nice keeper 17 inch flounder. About frozen John and I made the best move of the day back to the mouth of the river to one of my favorite fishing spots,Yep the Inlet View Restaurant for coffee and a breakfast sandwich for Ross. After thawing out we jumped back in  the boat and we headed south behind Sunset Beach to complete the slam. Iwas not going to give up Ross completed the slam with a nice 19 inch Red and John chimed in with a black drum for the Inshore Grand Slam. GREAT morning with some very good fishermen.
