"Good Luck Capt. Zach" | Get Busy | 04/15/12
 

Capt. Zach Faulkner has gone on to try his hand on a Tugboat.  He had said he wanted a career on the salt water and so it begins. We at the OIFC wish Zach good luck and tight lines!

Zach text me early this morning and told me he'd be steaming by on the Island Express.  I loaded up my English Bulldog "Tugboat" and headed for the old Sunset Bridge to get some pics..Here they are.

PS..Zach said they let him run the boat from the Ocean Isle Marina to just past the OIB Bridge and he didn't even hit anything.  Good luck Bud!!

"New reef hotels with meaning." | Get Busy | 04/15/12
 

I've always said my final resting place would be with my friends fishing or diving around me. Well today I saw  Eternal Reefs placing reef balls on a shrimp boat. These reef balls contain ashes of loved ones to be added to the Jolly Mon reef tomorrow. A really great Idea WWW.ETERNALREEFS.COM  A boat out of Calabash will carry loved ones out to the site.

We decided to fish a little further off today, hoping for Marlin. Fished 10 00' and found good numbers of Mahi, nothing big. Kids had a good time and Katelyn caught her first fish!

Yesterday (Friday the 13th), the same day the OIFC fleet had such productive trips Corey Bellemey, Trask Cunnungham and Wyndall all fished aboard Corey's new Donze in the same area as the World Cat and Carolina Cat, near the Blackjack.  Trask said these super nice wahoo all hit on red and black.

Thanks for the report Trask.

"The Sea Assault's Maiden N.C. Voyage" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/14/12
 

The Sea Assault's maiden NC voyage was today. This is a new 34 ft. Sea Vee owned by Lee Forbis, with the crew of Ned Garber, Bob Newell, and Web White. This wahoo fell for a pink skirted Capt Joe Shute lure on a planer rod in the prop wash at 100 /400 in 73 degree water . Also the crew boated 5 gaffer mahi, a Blackfin tuna, and a king.

What a way to introduce the SeeVee to the N.C. waters.  Thanks for the report Bob.

"Inshore this Week" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/13/12
 

The flounder are still biting, black drum nippling a bit, did not really target the trout, and the red drum have been stubborn. Mr. and Mrs. Heffernan allowed me to take them and there 4 precious kids fishing yesterday. Conditions were cool and windy. We started in a 15 to 20kts NW wind and ended with a 10 to 15kts SW wind. No doubt there were times the wind was slack and conditions were absolutely beautiful! We were using premium OIFC mud minnows and frozen shrimp for our primary bait. I got us anchored up and set out a nice spread. Not much was happening, so I started tossing the artifcials a bit. Mr. Heffernan also started to toss the jig a bit. With all that live fresh bait sitting around our first flounder fell for a soft plastic. Mr. Heffernan drilled a 13" flounder on the 4" Bass Assassin albino ghost. We managed to pick up a few more flounder and got a black drum on the shrimp. The table was set, keeper flounder, black drum, and about a dozen of keeper blue crabs. Mmm..mmm...good! See ya on the water!

"Gulf Stream fever outbreak" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/13/12
 

It's been years since I've seen a break out of gulf stream fever like is going on today. Looks like tomorrow we will need a traffic cop out there as the entire world appears to be going to the gulf stream tomorrow. The wahoo bite has been good, the weather looks perfect[should be flat in the morning and then a southeast sea breeze/tail wind 10-15 in the afternoon. We have both Cat boats out there today, so stay tuned, when they come in we will post where they fished and what they found. Great to see so many folks getting back to fishing. Our spring gulf stream season is not to be missed. Good luck to all tomorrow.

"OIFC World Cat report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/13/12
 

It was a tough day, required lots of patience- BUT we stuck with it and ended up pretty well. There were scattered wahoo, blackfin and dolphin in 170-220. We spent most of the day in that range. At around 2 Steele and OC called from the Carolina Cat and reported some action in 140ft. I made a turn inshore and at 2:30 in 150' we hit a 6-header of 10-15 pound Mahi. We gathered ourselves and reset and caught a Wahoo. For the finally we pulled up and deployed a few live baits and caught a couple Kings. Total tally ended at 2 Wahoo, 1 Blackfin, 7 Mahi and a King. We missed 3 other Wahoo. If u are goin Saturday I'd suggest working 140-150' inshore of Black Jack to inshore of Steeples. Good luck!

"Friday the 13th" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/13/12
 

What a day!  Captain Brant sent this reporter a message that he and the crew of our 2nd cat boat were in route to the OIFC and I should meet him there.  As I was trespassing on an abandoned golf course on my mountain bike at the time, I kicked it into high gear and headed home to get the camera.

When I got to the docks people were all around looking at two beautiful wahoo, several mahi, black fin tuna and trigger fish.  Mike and Amber Clark of Gastonia, N.C. were fishing with Captain Steele, Captain Dew and 1st mate Aaron and caught the smaller of the wahoo, but a metric ton of mahi and trigger fish.

Captain Brant and OIFC  cinematographer Terry were fishing with Cody Christian, Brad Desjerlias, Everette Bigeagle (cool name), all of Canada and Louis Fulcher of Fayetteville, N.C.  This group caught the bigger of the wahoo, probably in the 40# range.

Both boats were fishing inshore of the Blackjack where the water was 76 degrees and around 180 ft. deep.  Steele said the fish were biting anything they threw out.

Speaking of which..these Captains will probably want to throw this reporter out in 180 ft. of water and see what bites me since I erased every $@#* picture I took when I uploaded them to the computer!!!  Anyone interested in hiring an elderly reporter?

I HATE FRIDAY THE 13th.
