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.

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.
Just in case you've been asleep at the wheel, this coming weekend's weather is looking AWESOME. The Wahoo bite was good off our area, but ridiculously good from the Same Ole to the north -- these fish usually push in our direction, so I'm looking for crazy hot Wahoo fishing from the Steeples to the Black Jack this weekend. You may remember this time last year we had an epic wahoo bite. It could be this weekend, don't miss out !!!!! If you prefer Kings, they are in the vicinity of the Frying Pan Tower and thick as fleas.

In the hoopla of Team OIFC winning the Nationals, I forgot to report the year-end divisional awards the team received.
Caroline (6) won the division 9 Jr. Angler title for the second year in a row and Team OIFC won division 9 with a 76 point total.
The team is very proud of these accomplishments.
Captain Chris Burrows, former charter captain and tackle shop manager had some words to say at a public meeting of the South Atlantic Fisheries Council in Myrtle Beach.
You go Capt. Chris!!
Bonecrusher Sauls went fishing this weekend with Nesbitt and Beck Noble's nephew Ian. Ian landed red red drum, trout and black drum. Judging by the background it would appear they were at the Little River Jetties. Although Bonecrusher has been known to take his photos at bogus locations.
I hope the 'Crusher isn't teaching Ian bad habits. Congratulations Ian. Great catch!
Kevin Sneed took Nicholas to the Stream aboard his Rigged and Ready this weekend. Judging by the pictures the guys had a productive trip. I'd say it's time to take a Gulf Stream trip! Check with us at 910-575-3474! Or drop by the OIFC for all your Gulf Stream needs.
Brian Allen aboard the Wall Hanger showed that kings were't the only bite going down at the SKA Finals with this snapper he caught on a ribbon fish.
Notice the angle of the horizon and you can tell how smooth the seas weren't.
