"Hot Sea Bass Bite an a King Too!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/26/11
 

The in shore red drum bite has been wild.  The off shore has once again been a little too bumpy for a fun time.  That is up until yesterday when Captain Chris  "OC" Dew and first mate Aaron Dew embarked on a 6 hr charter with P.J. Wachteler, Dean and Jackson Dyas as well as Ron Smith (all of Fayetteville) and Frank Zwan (Charlotte).

The Cat Boat went to the shark hole.  As soon as 1st mate Aaron got the 2nd line in it was hammered by a king.  13 yr Old Jackson took the rod and after a little landed his 1st king!

A quick bite can mean one of two things  Either the action is going to be red hot, or zero.  In this case the king action turned off.  So the group elected to bottom fish.  The sea bass bite was so fast and furious that as soon as one person would get set up to fish, another was reeling in a bass.  The charter limited on sea bass, so you can only imagine how many were actually caught.

As a side note, Captain Chris said he couldn't find any pogies.  Captain Jeff Beck and I took The It Works out Sunday morning and no one was finding bait.  The birds were diving along the tide line and we were marking bait at about 23 ft., we also saw a couple of flips, but nothing to throw on..

"Fishing with the Vines" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/26/11
 

Ralph Vines and crew joined me for a 1/2 day trip. The two little guys, Spencer and Jackson greeted me with the request that we break world records today. No pressure right? Not only do they want to catch fish, but they want to break world records. Well, we didn't break any world records, but we caught a few fish. Jackson gave us the kiss of death on our first spot by catching a keeper flounder on the first cast. I had just given him the rod and was trying to bait another hook when he just started reeling. I got one! I got one! No hook set and rod pointed straight at the fish. I couldn't tell what he had. No worries! A 16" flounder gets air lifted in the boat like a bass fisherman just won the tournament. Awesome! We caught two more short flounder and the bite shut down. We moved around trying to find a place to hide from the wind. We caught a lady fish, trout, and a bluefish during some of our moving. At the last minute and on the way home, I stopped by one more spot. First cast was a black drum, second was a 17" red drum, croakers, and grunts on ever cast after that. We ended the trip with 15 minutes of chaos. Thanks for fishing with the OIFC guys. Hope to see you next year! See ya on the water!

"Colin and Cassie" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/26/11
 

Rusty Hill brought his two children out for a 1/2 day trip. We worked on the pinfish, croaker, blues and small flounder. Finally, Colin was screaming I got one! I got one! There is nothing like hearing those words from a kid when the drag is screaming the same thing in unison. Colin landed a nice redfish, his sister Cassie poses with them both in the picture below. Awesome kids! We tried to hold out a few more minutes to get Cassie one of her own, but both where playing ball games later that evening.  I enjoyed the day on the water with you guys. Good luck with baseball and softball. See ya on the water!

"Adam Park Returns" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/26/11
 

Adam booked his third trip with me this past week. Each time he brings along a new fisherman. Mr. Pitt was his guest on our first trip and landed our best trout of the day. I must mention that Mr. Pitt was a small mouth guide for 20 years! No pressure! Adam also had his friend Chad with us. Adam came back this past winter with Chad and his Dad. Chad put a spanking on everyone that day, landing 7 out of the 10 reds we caught. I am wondering if that is why Adam left him at the house on this trip? Adam brought along his Uncle Tom this go around. We worked on a few redfish in the lower slot around 19" to 22" inches, black drum, sheepshead, and flounder. Live shrimp has really been the ticket lately. Using a carolina rig or just a light jighead drifting the shrimp beside pilings and oyster bars will get r done. Live mud minnows, mullet, and pinfish are still putting a few flounder in the boat. We are still managing a handfull each trip, but the keepers are few and far between. Adam thanks for fishing with us and keep bringing folks back to us. See ya on the water!

"Excited Young Man" | Get Busy | 06/25/11
 

Joshua Wallen was as excited as I've ever seen a young angler. He brought a 6.2 lb catch and release red drum to be weighed in for the OIFC Fishing Rodeo and a picture.  This fish puts Joshua in 1st place in the red drum  division as his dad, Dr. Jeff, takes 3rd with is own catch and release drum.

Congratulations Joshua.  I hope your thrill of salt water fishing continues to grow and spreads to other young folks.

"Banana Pudding" | Get Busy | 06/25/11
 

Who said it was bad luck to have banana pudding on a fishing boat?  In this particular case it was good luck as one of the OIFC's Store employees, Katelyn, traded some banana pudding for a fishing trip with the OIFC's in shore guide extraordinaire, Capt. Jeff Williamson. Katelyn is pictured with the 1st salt water fish she has ever caught.  Capt. Jeff and she pulled them in behind Sunset Beach using live bait.

"Drum Beat" | Get Busy | 06/25/11
 

While the off shore boats were in the ocean bumping around because of the winds, the in shore Captains were having a field day in the sunshine.  Below are pictures of Captain Jeff Williamson and a group of gentlemen,[Don Clark,(Ohio), Nick Hall (Charleston, W.Va.), Jeremy Hall (Columbus, Ohio)] he took out Friday morning to some spots behind Sunset and OIB.  This was a last minute charter that worked out great.

The photos are of OIFC Store employee and photog Katie.

Dad Joe Matthews and his son Doug from Syrma, Ga. joined Capt. Chris and 1st mate Ben aboard one of the OIFC World Cats for a charter yesterday.  The group had their best fortune at the Shark Hole using live pogies they caught off Holden Beach earlier in the day.

In addition to the kings Doug hauled in, he landed 6.4 lb 28 inch spanish.  Thanks to the crew taking the OIFC 'Gaff cam along on their charter.  A special shout out to 1st mate Ben for taking these great pictures.  There are additional pictures in another report.

You tell me.  Is Capt. J. Dogg Williamson styling with his hat or not?  And did he really catch this trout with a Salt Water Asasin Shrimp or does he own stock in the company?

"Sailfish Action" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/22/11
 

John Thompson was the angler on his father-in-law's 24 ft. Seahunt captained by Claude Rogers when they hooked up on this beautiful sail fish at the Sharkhole on June the 12th.  This was John's 1st sail.  They had seen one sail fish hooked up earlier in the day.  John and Claude caught one 15 lb mahi and several teenage kings when they decided to take up lines at noon.  That was when the long line started screaming and a sail was putting on a tail walking show.  After about 20 minutes they got the fish aboard long enough for a photo op.  It took about 10 minutes to properly revive her and she swam off nicely.

Thanks for the pic guys!

"Two Pars and a Pogy" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/22/11
 

Two Pars and a Pogy is the name of the boat that caught several kings at the 390's today.  The thing is the kings were passing up the pogys and hitting frozen cigar minnows.  At least that was the case with Troy Caraway, Jason Folsom and Capt. Zach White, who are pictured with the kings, one of which weighed a little over 23 lbs.

Maybe Two Pars and A Cigar Minnow?

When I arrived at the OIFC, Captain Brant was finishing up cleaning the last king of several kings and mahi he caught today on a full day charter.  One of the guests said that the action wasn't "fast and furious", but was steady and consistent the whole day.  He is supposed to email me pictures.  When he does, I'll post them. I've not talked to Brant about the trip as he was pulling out on another charter.  Great to see the action!

"Mon. & Tues. Action?" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/22/11
 

David and John Hillsgrove joined me for a half day trip Monday morning. The redfish bite was excellent. We landed several fish in the 18" to 22" range. We released all the fish to fight another day. We also had a handfull of small flounder and a black drum. The flounder are still biting pretty good, but finding keepers has been a challenge.

Michael, Lee, and Chris joined me Tuesday for a half day trip. The action was much the same as Monday. The red drum were very active and kept the lines tight. We landed several again in the 18" to 22" range. We decided to keep two redfish, a flounder, and a black drum for supper. Again, the flounder were biting, but most of them just short of the new 15" mark. We will stay after them and keep you posted. See ya on the water!

"Where was he Sat. & Sun.?" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/21/11
 

The World Cat captained by Steele Park and Chris Eckert went to the Shark Hole Tuesday with Gary Stansoll, Adam Stansoll, Nick Wolfe, all of Charlotte and Scott Knuth of Sanford, N.C. aboard.

They spent most of the day there fishing with frozen Bait Masters Cigar Minnows.  One of the prizes they brought to the docks was a 34 1/2 to 35 lb king.  A day late and $17,000 short.

Also out charter fishing was Capt. Barrett McMullan, aboard his Yellowfin, The Tree Shaker.  Not to be left out Capt. Barrett's crew also brought home a king.
