Winter at the coast is one of the more beautiful times of the year. And the trout fishing in our area is on fire. There are some exciting sights, such as the goats, the beautiful sunset and Sasquatch catching his dinner as is shown in the pictures below.
A. Don't ask me how I come up with these titles to the Fishing Reports I write. It's a gift and a heavy burden to shoulder.
B. The local in shore anglers are having a big time with the trout bite. If you take a look in the mouth of this monster trout Nesbitt Noble is holding it can be seen that artifacts are also the way to go. This fish was caught in the ICW. The backwater creeks, the ICW as well as the rock jetties are the places to be. Check with Captain Jacob, or Capt. Jeff Williamson at the OIFC for some guidance on what's the ticket. They are our resident OIFC gurus on in shore fishing.
C. Regarding the picture. These local back water anglers are some cagey dewds, so we have to take the artificial bait in the trout's mouth and the background location with a grain of salt.
A few in shore fishermen are batting around the idea of an informal, very fun trout tournament Christmas Eve. The thought right now is a $50.00 entry fee per boat. ALL proceeds except the cost of some cheezy trophy will be put in the prize pot with the payout being 50% to 1st place, 30% to 2nd and 20% to 3rd. We'd like to have at least 10 boats.
This is JUST an idea in the early planning stages. If you think you'd fish it and have any ideas send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, get with Brian Aycock, Brandon Sauls, Jeff Beck or me. There will be more to follow.
During this fishing season I left 2 of my cameras with the off shore captains so they could share action shots. We jokingly call the cameras "gaff cams", because I often attach them to a gaff in order to get underwater action videos.
Because of illness in my family I've been away from the OIFC and I forgot about one of the cameras until Captain Steele called to see how things are going.
All this to say I picked up the camera and here are some recent shots of the action aboard the OIFC Cat Boats. Hope you enjoy. Come see us during the holiday season.
Last night was a grand night at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center! We had a big crowd enjoying the Ocean Isle Beach Flotilla, C & C's Hot Chocolate and Sweets as well as our Black Friday (and Saturday) Blow Out Sale. We still have plenty of items in the store so don't forget to use your Captains Club Points.

Captain Jim Bowen and the crew of the Stick Slinger Sea Hunt out of Little River, S.C. sent these pictures of some kings they caught this Friday. They limited on the kings and had to throw several back. They said they couldn't tell me where they were. DUH?
That had to be fun!!!!!!
