"Impressive!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 08/28/11
 

Irene looked impressive at a distance, but she ended up just like that girl across the room. As she got closer she just fell apart. Thank goodness right! If she would have looked any better up close, you could have ended up married with two kids and broke! The point is, just because you escaped this disaster, don't think you can predict the next one. I haven't met a woman that was predictable yet. It is best to look straight ahead, give quick yes or no answers until you find out what you are being accused of. Then agree, shut up, and do what you are told. As you can see I have weathered many storms and will live to weather many more. It is always best to be prepared for the worst and hope for the best. You just never know when she might turn on you. LOL! See ya on the water!

"New Partner" | Get Busy | 08/28/11
 

Meet Captain Tommy Helms' new fishing partner Trent.  He's been nicknamed P.  As soon as I can figure out a diplomatic way of explaining why I'll do it.

Check out P's  flounder he landed a couple of days before Irene.

"Hello out there ...." | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/27/11
 

Can anybody here me?  Are we live?  If you can here me, we are OK.  Despite a sleepless night, dealing with the acorns being pounded onto my roof, we have arisen this morning to more chaos.  I have all ready broken one of the blades on my rake, so things may be worse than I feared.  BUT, despite all this, the boats we left at the dock are still floating, the American flag on the dock is still flying and the OIFC will be open for business today at 2pm.

More reports to follow.

"Greatest near miss" | Get Busy | 08/27/11
 

For all the out of town people that visit the fishing report for updates I am glad to say I rode the Island from one end to the other. That was the Greatest close call I can remember. I checked ten homes and boats of friends and NO damage. Should be a great Labor Day weekend ahead.

"Irene Update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/26/11
 

It looks like Irene is tracking towards the east for land fall between Surf City and the Morehead area.

We're getting the 1st rain bands from Irene.  The swells are picking up, but that's it for now.  I've text Capt Brant to see if he is pulling the boats out.  They pulled the It Works out yesterday.

I'll post throughout the day.

This reporter/meteorologist now predicts the brunt of the storm will miss up.  We will get tropical force winds and some storm surge.  No big problem expected.  Stay tuned for more.

"Hurricane report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/26/11
 

Probably for the first time in my life I am missing in action on the hurricane team as I ended up in Atlanta doing some doctoring work. Over the years I have sacrificed myself more than once with the time tested formula of how you keep the hurricanes away from a direct hit to us. I will share this with our friends north of us who appear to be in the cross hairs. Formula: Get a bottle of Don Ricardo Coconut Rum[only Don Ricardo works, none of that Mailbu stuff in the white bottle]; build a camp fire; gather your friends and proceed to use the cap to take sips of the rum as you dance around the campfire backwards in a clockwise direction. The effect is to basically unwind the hurricane as your alcohol induced turbulance runs counter to the counterclockwise motion of the hurricane. Question this if you will, but my OIB track record has been spotless for the 30+ years I've been there.

Best of luck to everyone in the path. Hopefully Rickey is going to camp out at the OIFC to keep the web cam working so we can all watch the action from the safety of our homes.

"Pictures from OIB" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/26/11
 

A few pictures of the surf at Ocean Isle Beach around 4:30 pm.  The bridge at Sunset  closed at 5:00 pm.  I don't know about OIB.  Things are not bad here now.  Rain and wind, but nothing we haven't seen before.  I would love to have gotten pictures of the Shallotte Inlet.

"Irene At Sunset Beach" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/26/11
 

A few pictures from Sunset Beach of Irene just prior to the bridge closing at 5 pm.  You can see how this reporter put his life in danger in order to bring you these photos.  Thank goodness the pole was there for me to hold on to.

I may be speaking too soon, but I've seen far worse Nor'easters here than Irene.  The news and weather channels are blowing this way out of proportion as far as Ocean Isle and Sunset Beaches are concerned, as exemplified by my Weather Channel like picture!

The OIFC will be open at 2 pm Saturday with your's truely at the helm!

"Irene" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 08/25/11
 

Close friends and family know me as a hurricane watcher/worrier and landfall predictor extraordinaire since we first bought a home here in 1985.  I am generally correct.

That being said, if I was asked for a prediction at 9 am today I would have said no sweat!  By mid day I was worried.  Now I am a little more relaxed.  I am gassing up the car, but it was on empty anyway.  I'm not running out to by milk and bread But I'm not a milk drinker nor do I eat bread.  If my boat were in the water, I'd probably pull it out.

  I think we'll get tropical force and maybe more winds, heavy rain and probably a pretty good storm surge...depending on exactly when the storm hits.  This is because we are on the cusp of a new moon which brings with it extreme tides.  I think we'll have erosion and some wash over. 

Let's hope and pray that's all we get.  Stay tuned.

"Is there bad weather coming or something?" | Get Busy | 08/25/11
 

OIB has been a ghost town this week. The only thing Capt. J.Dogg has been pulling in is patio furiture and boats untill today when My WI group called and said lets go catch some fish. Why not I said and catch we did. Flounder and redfish where biting ahead of this little hurricane coming up from the Bahamas. We are going to try to go again in the morning. Be safe out there this weekend folks.

"Yesterday's Charter Pictures" | Get Busy | 08/23/11
 

I had a great charter yesterday with 11 year old Matt Nobers, his dad Jeff, Josh Haas and Fred Turner, all from Pittsburg, Pa.  Matt had the hot hand, landing a 26.5" red drum and 2 flounder. We used minnows and live shrimp as bait.  The flounder hit the minnows.

"Channelside Rig" | Get Busy | 08/23/11
 

Tim and Jack Gallimore hit the waters the other night seeking red drum under the dock lights.  They fished using Tim's favorite weapon, Capt. Tim's Channelside drum and flounder rig.  I couldn't get anymore information out of Tim.  He's pretty tight jawed.  Judging by his, Capt Jeff and Capt. Jacobs' catches the flounder and drum bite is on!

"Cedar Island" | Get Busy | 08/23/11
 

This weekend the Ocean Isle Inshore fishing crew took their annual trek to Cedar Island, for a weekend of fun and fishing.  The group was made up of:

Brandon "Bonecrusher" Sauls, with hired guns Kyle Hughes and Gordon Grady.  They were the top hook in the fleet with 12 monster reds, 5 on Friday night and 7 on Saturday night.  They ranged in size from 25 lbs to 50 lbs.

The rest of the group consisted of:

Brian Aycock and his boys Austin and Brandon aboard the "Hail Yea"

Daniel Simmons and Mark Staci

Eddie Jones on Team Panga

Eddie Julian and his sons

Scott Quaintence and his boys on Scott's Yellowfin bay boat

Clay Morphes and his brother on the Pork Chop

Will King

Everyone caught fish with Daniel catching 44 flounder at Drum Inlet in 2 hrs and 15 min.  The bite was red hot, but not so for the Boncrusher.

There were, as usual, several stories told.  But what happens at Cedar Island stays at Cedar Island.
