"High School Fishing League" | OIFC | 04/18/16
 

The next High School Fishing League tournament is this Saturday, April 23rd.  We are down to two final events for the year -- we need boats with boat drivers to volunteer to take teams of 2 high school students for a day of fishing to compete in their tournament.  Species are Flounder, Redfish, Trout and Black Drum.  

We have 16 teams ready to fish but only 6 boats that are committed; so if we don't get enough boats, the event will have to be cancelled.  If you have the time and the boat and you want to get on the water, please email me captbrant@oifc.com so I can get you set up to assist. 

If you want to see what the league is about, visit www.bchsfa.com 

Thank you for the consideration.

"Trout Bite- Vudu Rattlers" | OIFC | 04/11/16
 

I talked to inshore pro Clay Morphis about his Trout fishing - see the monster 7# he caught in our 4/10 post.  He is known to be a Vudu guy and I pried the details -- he reports that live shrimp have not shown up so he's using Vudu Shrimp almost exclusively.  He caught the picuted 4# and then the 7# alluded to earlier on the new 3.5" gold flake Vudu Rattler shrimp.

Technique is to cast it up current and keep the line semi tight as it drifts down through the water and then "walks" across bottom.  Once the line is tight down current, reel up and do it again.  In scenarios with less current, cast and slowly crawl with very slight twitches across bottom.  I've also seen Capt. Jeff fish them under popping corks some 2' to as much as 6' under the cork - very similar to how they fish in the northern Gulf.

"I've been Slack" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/11/16
 

My reporting has suffered lately not because the fishing is terrible, but being a Dad is a demanding job as well. Spending time with our young kids is important and we will never get that time back. It seems like we have been running from one practice to another lately. From basketball this winter to baseball this spring. Both my boys are very active in sports and both are working hard to get better at their game. I hope to get my oldest on the boat this year a few times to help with fishing. The fishing lately has been up and down with the weather. Speckled trout have been the most consistent target for me lately with plenty of short fish around with some nice keepers in mix. Black drum made a showing but most are on the small side with a keeper here and there. Redfish are also scattered and have been difficult to find on most days. A few flounder have awakened and that action should get more consistent towards the end of April. Next week looks to be awesome weather if the forecast holds. Those interested in learning our backwaters need to sign up for our backwater class scheduled for April 23rd. This class will cover several techniques on how to target our backwater species and how to explore our shallow waters. Please call the OIFC at 910 575 3474 to book your spot today. See ya on the water!

The weather is getting right and so is the merchandise at the OIFC. Everyone come in and check out the new inventory while the wind blows on days like today. We have all of the best looks from Salt life as well as Pelagic. We also have Blue Water Candy in just about every color which is all I've been able to think about lately. It wont be long until we'll all be out rocking the famed "fisherman tan" catching dolphin on the break, but in the meantime, gear up for your next trip at the OIFC. - Austin Aycock

"Spring Kings" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/06/16
 

On Monday (4/4) Sandy and Bob Simpson and captain Ben Morris and I departed from Shallotte inlet at 5:30 AM on a 10-hour trip offshore. A set plan was not established by any means however after discussing the forecasted weather with the Simpsons, Ben and I decided to point the OIFC Carolina Cat towards some numbers around the horseshoe area. Surprisingly, after a 34-mile run we were greeted by blue/green 69-degree water that was holding a good amount of bait. Ben went ahead and deployed a king spread and within 5 minutes we had our first fish on. While the reel continued to scream, Bob manned the rod as the rest of us anxiously waited to see what was fooled by a dead cigar minnow. Ben mentioned how the area we were fishing held a variety of different species but from the way the fish stripped off line he believed the hooked fish was a king mackerel. Superstitious of calling fish before they are boated, I kept quiet until Bob had coaxed the fish boat side. It was long, shiny, and believe it or not turned out to be our first king mackerel of the day. Thankfully, this action continued for the Simpsons as they caught and released 4 more kings in about an hour. After releasing the fifth fish, we opted to put away the slow trolling gear and head offshore another 10 miles to target some bottom fish. This decision also paid off as we immediately were hooked up with big vermillion snapper and black sea bass upon arrival. In addition to quick bites from beeliners and bass, the Simpsons topped off their day offshore by experiencing how painful it was to catch and release scamp grouper and American red snapper. All in all, we headed back to the dock with plenty of fish for dinner and actually made it back before the rough weather hit.

With how unstable our weather patterns have been recently, its tough to predict how the fish will behave in the next few weeks of April. However, fishing the breaks in-between frontal systems should produce some bites from wahoo in the 60 mile range and king mackerel in the 40-50-mile range. Hopefully our coast can catch a break from bad weather to allow us all to get offshore and see what’s biting.

Stick Slinger 04/06/2016

Awesome report and congrats on the nice fish!!

Bob and Sandy Simpson 04/06/2016

Bob and I have never been on a fishing trip like this. It was a beautiful sun rise and small waves. Enjoyed all the fish we caught. My arms gave out before the fish did. If anyone would want to have an enjoyable day fishing- go with these guys-they know how to have fun and catch fish. Sandy Simpson
