"Black Drum" | Get Busy | 07/15/11
 

Below is a picture of Tim Gallimore's 4.5 lb. black drum he caught while fishing the Shallotte River with Thomas Willis.  They were using live shrimp on a "channelside" rig.

Not to sound anymore ignorant than I am, I'll have to find out exactly what a channelside rig is before I can answer any questions.

Thanks for the info. Tim, and let me know what a channelside rig is!

"New Team" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/14/11
 

Father and son combo Butch Myers and Jeremy Myers of Black Mountain, N.C. recently purchased and upgraded a nice Grady White and formed a new father-son team to be reckoned.  A few days ago they were "sort of at the Horseshoe" when Jeremy hooked up and landed his 1st mahi.  Butch said the seas became sporty on the way back in but it looks like the Grady got them home ship shape.

Congratulations on your 1st mahi.  The mahi was hooked, and now I expect that ya'll are too  Thanks for the report and for being loyal OIFC customers!.

****Update!! Butch just sent me a picture of his 1st mahi.  They've definately got a boat who knows how to mahi fish!

"2 Citation Kings" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/12/11
 

Man!!!!  On the heels of many fishermen struggling during this weekend's Got Em On King Classic, Amanda Almond and Scott Lomas bring 2 citation kings to be weighed and photographed at the OIFC Monday the 11th.  Of all places to pull a 35.7 lb king Amanda caught hers at the 390's.  How many angler hours were spent there Sunday?  Scott Lomas caught his 34 lb king in 65 ft of water.  To finish it off they also weighed in a 5.7 lb spanish.

All the tournament talk in this report was in good spirit.  Congratulation from all of the king fishermen and the OIFC and thanks for bringing you fish by our humble establishment.

Thanks to Miss Olivia of the OIFC Store Staff for the report and pics.

"Bananas!!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/12/11
 

Who brings bananas on the boat? Only Konnor would do such a thing. He showed up this morning holding a banana. I asked him to eat the banana before he got on my boat or leave it on the dock. Konnor proceeded to get in the front of the boat and eat his banana. What! I told him that are chances of catching fish today just got very slim. We finally managed to hook our first fish of the day. Konnor is on the rod, guess what? Thats right...the hooks pulled. BANANAS! No worries! It wasn't long before another nice red was on the line and Konnor did a great job at angling. Everyone got a red and we moved onto the flounder. We waded through a few small flounder around the docks in the canals and finally got a few keepers. Mr. Howard pulled a nice 4.9 pounder out from one. Great job! Live mullet worked wonders on the reds and flounder today. See ya on the water!

"Position, Position, Position" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/12/11
 

Bill Creveling submitted this report of a fishing trip he, his father-in-law Hanley Ervin of Strasburg, Va..took out of OIB aboard Bill's 23 ft. Clearwater along with Jeff Young of Charlotte aboard his 23' Grady White a couple of weekends ago.  They usually fish tandem for safety reasons.  They fished 75 ft. of water where Jeff caught the Scamp in the picture while drift fishing.  Hanley caught the mahi in the picture while slow trolling a naked  king rig.  Bill said Hanley has great fishing instincts and they 79 yr. young Mr. Ervin generally out fishes everyone.

The next day, Sunday, was not as quite as nice but they made their was to 90 ft. of water where they found fast currents, choppy white capping water.  Jeff held his boat in perfect position using his motors and landed his second grouper.

Thank you Bill for sharing this report and the pictures.

"Working on the Docks" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/11/11
 

Mr. Yost brought his two boys fishing for a half day. We hit a lot of docks along the intercoastal waterway and drifted the Shallote Inlet. The results were fair. We caught several short flounder to get one keeper out of the deal. The redfish were under the docks hitting live mullet and menhaden. We did manage a couple on live shrimp, but the pinfish are quicker than the reds on most cast. It has been tough, but keep moving and you are bound to hit a few. Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya on the water!

"Pictures From Got Em On Classic" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/11/11
 

Several Team OIFC Boats fished the Got Em On Classic.  Right now I don't have any information on how the Team members finished.   I was told that we the "Team OIFC/Do Work" finished 15th out of 160+ boats with a 16.04 lb fish.

The day started with finding pogies in front of Dunn Sound at Cherry Grove.  The Captain Brant's Pogey Net was a necessity.  Toby Russ threw once and Capt. Jeff threw right behind him and they floated both nets.

Since we were that far down we decided to fish the 90's.  We caught one king, Capt. Chris Dew of the Carolina Cat was doubling up on Kings.  Then the sharks moved in so we headed to Christina's Ledge.  We caught our 2nd king there.  We also caught a sail fish that put on a show.  He broke off before I could get my camera out.

The sharks joined us there so were hauled the mail to the light house rocks.  The only thing we caught was a spinner shark who also put on a show.

Overall hardly anyone caught any big fish and a great number of people didn't catch any.  Here is the link for the official results.

Obviously I work at the OIFC.  But we are grateful that Capt. Brant chose us as one of the teams to represent the OIFC and to fish the It Works.  All of our equipment, from the OIFC Custom Rods, Speedmaster reels, Captain Brant's Custom Pogey to the fuel comes from the OIFC.  It is the same stuff used on our charters.  I highly recommend getting your supplies from the OIFC.  It is charter and tournament proven!  This commercial message was brought to you by Capt. Rickey.

"Knocking on the Docks" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/10/11
 

Headed out again this morning working the canal docks and several along the waterway. Caught a few small ones inside the canals, but found a few keepers in the waterway. One dock produced a rather nice one. Hope to repeat this for my trip tomorrow. Capt. J-Dogg continues to slay the reds and black drum. Stay tuned for his pictures as he had some nice ones. We both continue to work on the fish. Give us a call. 575-FISH! See ya on the water!

"A to Z Poorman's Dinner" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/09/11
 

My wife left me again...she took all the credit cards, money, and the kid...ahh, she just went to a wedding out of town...I think she will be back?...LOL... Either way I was left to fend for myself this afternoon. With no money I had to do it the old fashion way. I grabbed my fishing pole and a few deep creek baits. Hopped on the boat and dropped the trolling motor. My third cast produced a nice 17 inch fish, a few more cast produced another keeper. I attracted an audience quickly as I never left the canal and folks quickly caught on to what I was doing. Talked to a few folks and shared some information. Another angler caught one on a mepps spinner bait. It was that magical thirty minutes before dark bite. Glad to see the rain...it has brought life back to the surface as bait was everywhere this afternoon. I look forward to the next few days and the full moon is approaching at the end of the week. Should see lots of fish caught and some good ones in the mix. Good Luck! See ya on the water!
