"Jolly Mon concluded" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/20/11
 

COMPLETE LIST OF ALL RESULTS FROM ALL CATEGORIES- CLICK HERE

Well, what can you say.  Sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you.  This weekend the bear got us.  Between bad weather and bad fishing, it was a tough weekend to be a tournament king mackerel fisherman.  But, despite all the negative transpirings, there were winners and although not very big, there were King Mackerel caught.  Congratulations to all our winners and thanks to everyone who participated.  We had 185 boat entries, which is down substantially from the typicall 300+ boats the Jolly Mon hosts, but I still consider it pretty darn good in the face of such adversity.  We had a great captain's meeting evening on Friday with all sorts of festivities and food as the show went on just like it does every year. 

Again, thanks to everyone who stayed dedicated to the Jolly Mon.  I am beginning work now on the Fall Brawl and hope to see you there as well- hopefully with better weather and certainly with better fishing.

Capt. Brant

"Jolly Mon Results, Day One" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/18/11
 

There were several tired, haggard and wet anglers pulling up to the official Jolly Mon scales at the OIFC.  When the dust settled at 5:00 pm we were told unofficially that 112 boats fished today with only 18-20 weighing in fish.  Places 1-3 are:

1)  Logan's Run, 23.60#- D Logan

2)  Hot Ron, 19.54#- Brett and Allen Barnes

3)  Natural  18.50#- Stephen Hill

** The All In weighed in a 51# cobia

This reported will fish Sunday so a cub reporter will be subbing for me.  Good luck to all the Sunday fishermen.  Be safe, tight lines and bring in a big one.

This able bodied reporter will be fishing Sunday so a cub reported will substitute for me.

 

**Please understand that is report is not official, and may contain mistakes so don't call or send emails complaining that I got something wrong.--Thanks, Capt. Rickey

"Inshore Bite?" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/18/11
 

While many folks have geared up for the King Mackerel season, Capt. J-Dog and myself continue to pursue after the flounder. Capt. J-Dogg continues to find the flounder with 4 nice keepers caught yesterday. I on the other hand, could only find a hand full and muster up 2 keepers. Both I might add, came on the jig again.  I decided to try a few docks for redfish since my floundering skills were lacking. Joey was the first one to hook up! Nice! He managed to pull a nice 26" red drum from the pilings. We continued on to catch several redfish, most of them being just in the lower slot around 20".  That is what I love about saltwater. When one fish doesn't want to cooperate, another one usually will. Just hard to make that decision to move sometimes to make it happen. See ya on the water!

Bait? The bait continues to be small. Pogies are everywhere, but small. Mullet are everywhere, but small. Catching pinfish, croakers, and spots are the ticket if you are looking for larger bait. The artificials continue to produce a few fish in chartureuse and white colors. Don't forget the docks in the canals. Lots of bait in the canals, which usually means fish are hiding under the docks. Saw a little guy catch a nice one of the dock yesterday. Keep you posted! See ya on the water!

"Adjusting your Jolly Mon fishing plan for weather" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/17/11
 

The forecast being put out this morning is not what we hoped for, but as everyone knows, it changes constantly, so who knows what it will actually end up being come fish days. I went out to the beach this morning, and although wind is SW at 15kts, there is no swell, so conditions are only a short chop. It looked like approx 2 feet.

We all love to fish in flat conditions but when we don't have ideal, the trick is to adjust your plan to the conditions. In this case, with a SW wind, there are several strategies you can do that will work.

[1] heading north[east] up the beach will be in a following sea, so leaving out of any of our inlets[Little River/Shallotte/Lockwood] and heading toward Yaupon/Light House Rocks will not be that bad. Fishing these close in spots, you will have a little wind protection from the land on a SW wind, definitely better than say the Shark Hole/Jungle.

[2] getting out to a spot offshore like 90's/Jungle/Shark Hole is not a problem, just take it slow. Once there, anchor, chuming is a good strategy in a 15kt wind. Or drift downsea, crank your baits in, and start another drift.

[3] any of the spots on the north[east] side of Cape Fear shoals will be fairly calm on the beach, as the land protects that area from a SW wind. Spots like Carolina Beach Inlet will be perfect conditions. You can run down the intercoastal, across the Cape Fear to Snows Cut, and out Carolina Beach inlet, and completely avoid the SW wind. Additionally, the beach water should stay clear on that side of the shoals as it will be protected by the land. The tourney has been won at least twice at CArolina Beach Inlet, so definitely a good bet.

So the answer to the tourney game plan is adjust to the conditions. Somebody will win a whole bunch of money and my bet is it will occur within a 9 iron of the beach. Good luck to all.

"Jolly Mon report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/16/11
 

OK - the facts are the weather is not shaping up very good for the tournament- go figure.  Its been flat calm for 2 weeks and suddenly the 2 days of the tournament it's going to blow 15-20kts-- then the funny thing is to look at the forecast for the following Monday and its back to 10kts -- this is a conspiracy! 

Regardless, the Jolly Mon must continue and as such, despite Mother Nature, there will be a winner.  There is a large contingency of 23 foot and under boats that fish the Jolly Mon, and despite the SW wind, I hope many of you will still choose to participate; either fishing the calmer waters on the east side of the Frying Pan shoals or staying close and hunting for the big fish along the beach front.  I still hold firm to my prediction that the winning fish will come from between the Cape Fear Sea Buoy and Lighthouse Rocks.  Currently we have 100 pre registered boats, which is in-line with pervious years.  Typically the majority of entries come in tomorrow evening at the Capt. Meeting, so I'm confident we'll get over the 200 boat mark, but I'm just not sure if between the weather, economy, less fishermen and whatever else that we'll make the magical 300 boat mark- but by gosh the Jolly Mon staff is going to put in 110% to be sure whoever comes has a great time and gets their money's worth.

Hey one other thing, as many of you have read, the Jolly Mon sponsors driver Justin Milliken and the 02 Jolly Mon Racing Team- racing at Myrtle Beach Speedway most Saturday nights.  This Saturday night Justin and team will suit up as they are currently tied for the points lead in the track championship.  I am going to go with my family on Saturday, arriving to the track by 8pm.  If you are looking for some entertainment on Saturday evening, come down to Myrtle Beach Speedway and root on the Jolly Mon racing team.  My family and I will be in the pits, which you are hereby formally invited to join.  Instead of going through the main gate, drive around the side and pay a bit extra to join us in the pits and in the action.  I hope you'll come- see you there!

Everything is set for Friday's registration and festivities.  Please ride the off-island shuttle the tournament site.  All shuttle riders will get raffle tickets to win all sorts of great prizes from sponsors.

"Jolly Mon weather/fish update" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/15/11
 

Checking conditions [and my previous forecast] wind blowing from noth/northeast direction. This is causing the beach water to continue to get clearer. Pogies are up and down the beach like they have been for last week. There is no way the big Kings are not close behind. As week moves forward, high pressure will build back in and we will have a typical summer pattern of Southwest wind. Typically flat in morning with afternoon seabreeze. Forecast for weekend is 2-3 feet, again probably flat in morning with afternoon seabreeze. With bait and water clarity, big fish should be on the beach or close by[90's or Lighthouse rocks the furtherest.

"Busy Day" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/14/11
 

Every OIFC Charter boat + Captain Barrett's "Tree Shaker" Yellowfin were pressed into service today.  When the fishing is good, business is good!  Near shore, Captain Zach Faulkner and Captain Chris Eckert had a couple of short trips.  This allowed them to absolutely slay the spanish mackerel.  This is good news to us king mackerel anglers as spanish make excellent bait.  Further good news is the pogies are thick close to shore.

Meanwhile, Captain Chris Dew and 1st mate Aaron Dew on one of the World Cats and Captain Steele on the "Tree Shaker" Yellowfin had longer trips.  All was well until the wind picked up and made the ocean "not too fun".  Chris managed a couple of mahi and some other incidental fish.  Steele got a couple of teenage kings.  Mother Nature made it a not to fun day to fish.

Back at the docks, the OIFC is getting in Jolly Mon mode.  Tents have been put up and the finishing touches on most everything are being completed.  We expect a lot of boats this year, so come join the fun!

"14 Flounder" | Get Busy | 06/14/11
 

Captain Jeff and his charter Phil, Russ, Tyler and Josh from Mo. worked against the east to have a very successful charter today.  The guys caught 14 flounder and a trout.  The ones which weren't "legal" were released safe and sound.

Captain Jeff used mud minnows while fishing the falling tide.
