"Black Friday Fishing" | Get Busy | 11/27/11
 

While most were lined up outside thier favorite electronics store  dodging bullets and pepper spray some of us where enjoying an awesome day of  trout fishing in the Shallotte River. The bite was a little slow to start. Trout must have moving water. The flood high tide started moving and the fish started to bite.Keepers where hard to come by but the spikes bit goooood. Gulp shrimp under a float or on the bottem seem to work. We fished all day, the only down note Georges wife was going to meet us at Snookies for lunch but got rear ended in Little River by a rubber necking  shopper looking for deals. Shes was fine.

"Three Generations" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/26/11
 

Steven Chase(Grandpa), Derrick Chase(Son), Dalton(Grandson), and Baylor(Grandson) joined us for a half day inshore fishing trip yesterday. It sure beat fighting the crowds at the mall shopping to save a few bucks! We headed for the Jetties. We started picking off a few trout with a couple keepers in the mix. I decided to change gears a bit and put some live mullet minnows on the bottom. Baylor was immediately rewarded with a nice 26" redfish peeling off some line! Baylor did an excellent job angling and landed the brute after a few minutes of tug of war! A few pictures later, Dalton was hooked up on another drag screamer! Dalton man handled the 25" brute to the boat and ended the fight quickly. Two reds and two trout in the box, plenty for dinner. We continued to catch a few more redfish and trout, but released them to fight another day. It was a beautiful peaceful day on the water. Great memories made with a great group of guys. Thank you guys! See ya on the water!

"Triple Trout" | Get Busy | 11/25/11
 

Brandon and Austin Aycock were joined today by Camdyn Beck for a friendly "tournament in a tournament" in the OIFC Year Round Rodeo.  At the end of the day, Captain Jeff Williamson weighed Camdyn's trout at the OIFC at 2.9 lbs.

You can tell by the pictures where they were fishing.  Also by the picture of the back in action "Shrimpin' Ain't Easy", taken yesterday what they were using.

The guys were fishing under the supervision of their dads, Brian Aycock and Capt. Jeff Beck.

Brandon and Austin are fresh back from fishing the SKA Nationals.  It's great to see we have a lot of youth involved in salt water fishing.

"Miss Janelle" | Get Busy | 11/25/11
 

Pictured below are Mrs. Janelle Dawson and Miss Cassie Dawson (an OIFC Staff Smiling Face) with a couple of trout they caught on 11-20-11.  Husband/father, OIFC Capt. Chris Dawson quoted me a Zac Brown lyric "knee deep in the water somewhere" when asked about where they were caught.  My educated guess is overhead in the water at the Little River Jetties on live shrimp.  Just saying.

"The Other Plyler" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/24/11
 

Stand back!!!!  I followed Captain Brant's advice and stepped away from the magnets.  I was able to re size the picture of the other Plyler King and get it on the report!!!

Nice kings guys.  Also don't bring magnets around me...for real!

"2nd Place Wahoo Surrenders!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/23/11
 

The 2nd Place Wahoo in Martini's Hook A Hoo was not caught.  The 46.05 lb 'hoo was swimming in the ocean, looked up and saw a boat crewed by Bryan Freeman, Daniel Simmons, Brian Robbins and Tim Gallimore, it feared a fate worse than death with this cast, thrust itself on the nearest gaff and put itself out of it's misery.

Bryan was correct when he said that he knew of a dozen or more wahoo bigger than theirs caught this week by people not in the Tournament.  Problem was Byran, they didn't enter!  Congratulations!

"Plyler" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/23/11
 

Meet the Plyler's.  Or at least half of them anyway.  Derrick and Erik Plyler sent 2 pics of kings they caught at the tower.  Sad thing is I could only get one pic to upload.  I contended it was a format issue.  Brant said I was standing too close to magnets and needed to step back. (My bionic brain is magnetically powered)  Since only one uploaded it may be a little of both.

Sorry about the 2nd pic folks, it was of a nice king.

U know they r biting if I'm catching. Fished couple hours with Jacob this a m and caught 30 or so trout. Most were 12-13 inches but had 6 or so 16-18 i nchers. Good fun on light tackle, all artificials. Chartreuse was the color on 1/8 and 1/4 oz jig heads. Capt. Brant McMullan

"Thanksgiving Trout Tourney" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/22/11
 

The good news is we've been having quite a few folks asking if we are going to be holding our annual Thanksgiving Trout tournament.  The bad news is that because of low participation for the past several years, we decided not to host the tournament this year.  However, we want to have it and if everyone that has expressed interest would participate, the event would be a great success.   We'll look to bring it back next year, so keep it in mind.

The OIFC Rodeo has Trout as a category and the perennial winner, Brandon Sauls is once again on top -- make this your challenge for the weekend.  Enter the Rodeo for $20 and get on the OIFC Rodeo leaderboard -- See you this weekend.

"Chicken Rig?" | Get Busy | 11/20/11
 

As usual, Tim Gallimore has come up with an off-the-wall way to catch fish.  He said he used a modified chicken rig under a wood cork he painted red, white and black and named the "Woodpecker".  Whether he's being 100% honest or not, Tim has a way to catch fish!

"Too Late" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/20/11
 

Bill Cauldwell caught this 30 pounder Saturday at the Twin Wrecks aboard Kenny Clark's Contender the "Liquidate".  It's a crying shame they didn't catch it 3 weeks ago.

"The Law's Cluster" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/20/11
 

Captain Michelle Drake and Jeff of "The Law" fishing had watched the weather for a couple of days.  Finally, they got a good report.  Michelle checked all the gear and set the alarm for 5:30 am Sunday morning.  After missing the alarm, they didn't get a line in until 10:55.  A black fin was on before they got the 2nd line deployed. Then with 4 lines out, a 2nd black fin hit.  There were a few more strikes, then the big one hit.

That is when things got interesting.  Michelle fought the wahoo to the boat.  When the fish surfaced she looked for Jeff.  He was looking for gloves.  So Michell wrapped the rod between her legs, held it against the combing pads, and began leadering the fish.  The gaff was in the rod holder.  The with the leader in the right hand, the gaff in the left and the rod wrapped around her legs, Michell gaffed the wahoo!  Jeff came just in time to help hoist the fish in the boat.  Michelle was shaking as hard as the wahoo.

Michelle can brag about being the 1st mate, the angler and catching the wahoo on a rig Jeff had complained about from the time Michelle made it until the fish hit it.

The Law crew headed to Doc Holidays with tuna, Bonita and a 65+ pound 66 inch wahoo.  The downside is they weren't in the Hook A Hoo or in the Rodeo.  

Congratulations to The Law.

The wahoo bite is surely on!  Jim Almond and his crew caught these wahoo in the Gulf Stream aboard his Southport 26 Saturday before last.  The big one weighed 67.5 and the others were in the 30 lb range.

"Blackdogs Wahoo" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 11/19/11
 

Bob Newell and crew took advantage of the hot wahoo bite and the beautiful weather by heading to the Winyah Scarp and trying their hand.  Pictured below is a wahoo they caught on that trip.  Sometimes you have to play the hand you'[re delt.
