"Tubbs Inlet Drum" | Get Busy | 09/14/11
 

Reggie Gaddy Jr. stopped by the OIFC shopping for hooks.  He told me about some red drum he's been catching.  Reggie was fishing from the beach on the west end of OIB and was catching drum with @4" mullet he been catching in his cast net.  He said he was fishing on a rising tide just inside the mouth of the inlet and there was a 30 minute window when he was tearing the red drum up.  He said he comes down here from Weddington, N.C. about this time of year, every year, with the same results.  As is my general practice, I asked Reggie to get me a picture.  Here it is:

"On the Edge" | Tiberias - 22' | 09/14/11
 

The inshore bite was on fire just before the full moon and has slowed just a bit with its passing. The redfish are still biting really well. Live shrimp and mullet on a carolina rig is getting the job done around hard structure. Rod and Bill joined me yesterday afternoon, we found several short flounder with only one keeper in the bunch. We switched gears and started to target the redfish. We had lots of opportunities, but pulled hooks, bent hooks, and broke a few lines. We finally landed a couple of nice reds for dinner. Andy and Alan join me this afternoon and the action was pretty much the same. We landed several flounder, baby gag grouper, and some nice reds. Thank you guys for fishing we me! See ya on the water!

The water still needs to cool down a bit for an all out Fall bite! A cold front is supposed to pass this weekend and should help us out a bit. I expect the bite will be great around the new moon phase late next week. Stay tuned....

"Fresh Fish" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/13/11
 

If you decide to dine at The Mid Town Bistro in N. Myrtle Beach you'll be treated to fresh wahoo, tuna and possibly mackerel.  Jeff Martini headed to the blue water..the scarp, with friends and family.  The crew landed 4 wahoo, 6 mahi and a king.

Also Captain Brant, Captain Steele and Captain O.C. fished with Captain Wall Trayah aboard his boat out of Southport today.  They went to 150 ft deep water and caught wahoo and king.

The wahoo bite is most definitely on!

"Tuna Report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/12/11
 

Just figured out Internet access up here in the booming metropolis of Prince Edward Island, Canada.  I'll keep it short until I get back home and am able to upload pictures.  The story is, this is an adventure that every serious big game fisherman needs to experience.  PEI truly is the "land of the giants".  We have literally hand fed 1000+lb giant bluefin tuna and did our best to stand behind rods as these Buick sized fish toyed with us.  Several giants were subdued up to 850lbs. I firmly believe, however there are many tunas up here that simply can't be caught on standard rod and reel gear.  The size of these critters is unimaginable.  I know the picutres won't do it justice but seeing it firsthand is something I doubt any of us will forget.  We've had a great time up here in the small quaint fishing village and everyone has pulled on giant tunas until their hearts were content.  We head home tomorrow with great stories, great memories and sore muscles.  Stand by for the full report coming soon.

"Under pressure" | Get Busy | 09/11/11
 

I met Bob and Terry at the fish cleaning station on the dock at OIFC about a month ago. Bob had an uneventfull day on the water and said when I come back we will go fishing. Fishing we did this day. Not sure what has happened to the flounder bite we hit some great mud flats alone the ICW and found acouple of short fish. The docks did us well on the falling tide.

"She Can Do It All" | Get Busy | 09/11/11
 

Sunday, Capt. Jeff Beck, his daughter, 1st Mate Camdyn and myself, all members of Team OIFC decided to do a little back water fishing.  Jeff said he'd been working with Camdyn on throwing a cast net.  But I had no idea she could throw it as well as she did.  Camdyn caught shrimp and mullet on almost every throw, and her net opened nicely.

After getting some nice bait we elected to anchor off at the Sunset Bridge near Bonecrusher and his family.  No more than Camdyn cast her Barbee rod, the tip took several nice hard dips and the fight was on.  What appeared to be a 3 lb flounder was striping line faster that she could reel.  Once she got the fish along side, it decided to run and snapped her line.

Jeff put her another bait on and bam!!!  It was me this time.  I brought in a record setting toad fish, causing Camdyn to laugh  at my lack of fishing skills.  Right after that she landed a 1.4 lb flounder  all by her self.

We pulled anchor and changed to a location near Daniel Simmons' house.  We poped our baits under a dock.  And you guessed it, Camdyn hooked a 2.7 lb black drum.  She fought it all the way in all by herself.

The crew cleaned the fish at the OIFC and after cleaning the boat and taking her bath she was ready to have a great dinner of fresh shrimp, flounder,  black drum, cole slaw and hushpuppies.  Country girl can survive!!

"Great Fishing" | Get Busy | 09/10/11
 

Friday was a beautiful day in S. Brunswick County.  The morning started off cooler than normal and the fishing was hot.  Captain Jeff Williamson was joined by Shelly and Mark Laws of Johnston City, Tn., and Mike Hall and Gary Cooper of Collinsville, Va.

When they returned to the dock they said they had limited out on Red Drum and had a couple of flounder too boot.  1st Mate Brayden McMullin welcomed them back to the OIFC and inspected their catch.

"Weather Update" | Get Busy | 09/09/11
 

It appears the hurricane passed us far enough off shore it caused little effect on the seas.  The Tower has settled down to within norman conditions and a check of the beach revealed just the normal waves.

I don't have any bait reports as no boats have been out.  The weekend looks great.  Check with us and we'll post information a we get it.

"Making a come back" | Get Busy | 09/08/11
 

You may have heard the Speckle Trout took a beating this past winter and many froze in the backwaters during times of extreme cold. The past couple of days while cast netting shrimp for bait I have caught small trout. Even the keeper trout  caught we are releasing to help out. They say even without more cold weather it will take (3) years to get good numbers back, so help out and practice catch and realease.

"In the red or black?" | Get Busy | 09/08/11
 

Today started out with an awesome sunrise and got nothing but better. First stop while the tide was up we targeted flounder. As the tide fell we moved on to docks close to deep water and creek mouthes. Closer to low tide we hit the deep water structures. With 14 reds , 7 blacks and a few flounder  released we headed back to the docks at OIFC. We only kept enough for dinner tonight and let the rest go to fight another day.

"Sweet Music!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 09/08/11
 

What a beautiful morning! I fished hard in the wind and dodged storms on Tuesday to produce some nice fish. I would have figured it would have been easy this morning as conditions could not have been better! Well, the water was a bit dirty, but Fall is in the air. Kevin, Linda, Mark, and Brad joined me for a half day fishing trip this morning. We started close to home landing small bluefish, flounder, reds and toadfish. Oh! Don't forget the occassional pinfish. My group was having fun, but I was getting disappointed as the action should be much better this time of year! Finally, after burning up the waterway and running to several locations, Linda's reel started singing that sweet tune every guide loves to hear. Linda followed suit with her on tune, yelling "what in world do I have"? The rod was bent double and heading deep, sting ray or redfish? Big swirl on top and spot on the tail indicated we finally had the right fish hooked up! We worked on the school of redfish for about 30 minutes until my crew and tackle were nearly exhausted. It was total fun chaos with 4 rods bent double at one time today. We were taking pictures, reviving fish, and had reels screaming all at the same time. We lost several fish in the process, but we did land 7 redfish between 26 and 30 inches. I had a blast, because my crew got to see what Fall fishing is all about! I love it! Thank you guys for fishing with us! Hope to see you all again soon! See ya on the water!

"Weather Watch" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/08/11
 

All off shore fisherman's focus has been on the effect hurricane Katia will have on our fishing this weekend.  Thus far, it doesn't appear that Katia should have significant impact in regards to fishing.  As of this posting the waves at the Tower are 7 ft. and almost no wind.  In talking to area surfers the big waves they hoped for had not shown up.  On another note, if you are interested in the effect  Hurricane Irene had on the N.C. Outer Banks follow this link for some before and after pictures.

The focus last weekend, off shore, for most of us was king mackerel, however check out the rewards Captain Chris Dew had on a bottom fishing trip over the weekend.
